Because of certain medieval aspects of the house, care needs to be taken on stairs going down to the bedrooms, particularly for toddlers and elderly people.

The house is renovated tastefully and painted bright yellow and this is an attractive feature very much in keeping with the whole historical centre. The terrace is an important feature of the house, and can be used for eating meals, barbecues, sunbathing, drying clothes or just looking over the town and sea-views. It is suitable for renting all year round and there are wonderful walks that can best be appreciated for the flora and fauna in autumn, winter and springtime
There are shutters on all the windows that are useful for keeping the rooms cool in the summer and for keeping the sun out during siesta time. The streets are very quiet - it is very rare to see a car and indeed no cars can get down the street that is overlooked by the bedrooms.
Rental is confirmed on receipt of a deposit. This deposit is not refundable. Payment is due 6 - 8 weeks before date of arrival, when the client will receive details in writing/by email, about what is expected regarding the house (non-smoking etc) including directions to Bosa from Alghero airport.
Before arriving, the client will be given instructions about how to contact the agent (by email or phone) who looks after the house to let her know what time they will be arriving. They will be directed to her home where they can pick up the key and to the parking area near the house.
The Sardinia region
Bosa is on the North West coast of Sardinia, 50km from Alghero. The whole island can be explored by car from this part of the island as roads are being constantly upgraded. The climate is Mediterranean - June, July and August are particulary hot, but it is renowned for having 300 days of sunshine a year. Even in November and December there may be long periods of very warm weather, although night temperatures are lower. The winter months are suitable for walking and exploring and for a quieter holiday The house is kept warm with a very efficient and cosy wood stove in the sitting room.
There are benefits at any time of year - the Carnival in February, the wonderful wild flowers in April and May, perfect swimming and beach weather and night life during the summer and excellent walking conditions during autumn and winter. The light is always spectacular - particularly significant for people who like to paint or who enjoy creative pursuits.

There is a wide range of restaurants, all offering delicious, tasty food and friendly atmospheres as well as tourist office, museums and art gallery.The town is liveliest in the summer months when the population triples, but at other times, the quiet can be relaxing .In the spring the nearby cliff-tops are covered with colourful flowers and plants.
