Villa | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 8
The villa is located less than 10 minutes drive form the fishing town of Bosa on the NW coastline of Sardinia. It is a tranquil area within a hamlet of small houses, a church and piazza. Restaurants and bars are within 15 minutes walk during the tourist season.
It offers superb panoramic sea views lying less than 70 metres from the cliff edge with access to a rocky beach. Sandy beaches are less than 10-15 minutes walk and a short drive will take you to secluded and tranquil coves as well as beaches with night clubs and discos in the town of Bosa.
The villa itself has modern amenities including 7.5m above ground pool, DSL internet, air conditioning, heating, and entertainment systems that include an extensive array of DVDs playstation 3, computer and printer.
Evenings are fantastic with sun sets over the sea directly in front of you from the veranda. It is great for romantic holidays as well as family get together. It is child friendly and can accommodate a maximum mix of 8 persons of adult and and child age (two double rooms and one room with two bunk beds suitable only for teenagers and young children). In April 2014 the property will open the upper floor and will have two separate bedrooms with twin beds. Photos will be available in March.
What we offer is an assurance that we will act quickly and efficiently and tell you how it is. The photos and reviews speak for themselves in terms of what we have delivered and what you can expect. We have made every provision to make it a home which we feel is what people want from a holiday letting, rather than just a rental property.

There is ample parking both within and outside the property. There is sufficient parking for up to two cars inside the property. However, they are required to have a high suspension. So no Ferraris!!
Please note that the pool is an outside above ground 7.5m by 4.5 m pool of 1.84 m depth and is especially suitable for children. It is ideal to simply relax and cool down and sub bathe, rather than being capable to swim in it.

The house also has full winter provision with a wooden stove and heating between November and late april
The Sardinia region
There are steps to gain access to the rocky beach below our villa. However, you need care as the steps are quite old. If you like to snorkel, simply lie on the rocks to get a tan or hear the sound of the waves then its worth the trek.
This is a beautiful small beach tucked away among rocks. The sands get really warm. It's also a natural grainy sand. Surprisingly, it does get a little busy in August. On a clear windless day the water is crystal clear and the rocks have a plethora of multi-coloured fish.
Beach Porto Alabe- 15 minute walk (5 minute drive preferred)
A beautiful beach that can be quite exciting when the waves pick up. it is a surfing area in the late Summer and Autumn. There are beach guards during August. It does get busy during August (but not so you would notice).
Bosa Beaches- 10 minute drive or less towards the town of Bosa-Less adventurous but way safer for small children
Our Favourite Beach-Beach by the Tower (stop at Porto Alabe, 20 minute walk via the coastal hill pass). yes its quite a hike but worth it.
Why? Quite simply a paradise. Not many people go there. The snorkeling is phenomenal. The tower you see has a cave and the kids just love to jump off the rocks (not for the wary, between 15 to 30 metre drops!) You need a back-pac and plenty of water but it's well worth it and it'll give pleasant memories.
Osa has a lot to interest and entertain the visitor. However, above all, its charm is that it is a living and working town. It has its own dedicated festivals and markets.
It is still possible to see old gentleman sat outside weaving lobster pots and old ladies, dressed in black, sat at their looms weaving patterns from ancient tales.
The walk by the side of the river is palm tree lined and from here you can look at the many fishing and pleasure boats moored at the river banks.
From a practical viewpoint Bosa has two large supermarkets on your way into Via Alghero and Via Nazonale.
The center of Bosa around Via Giovanni XXIII has a good selection of shops including Bank (with cash points), Internet access, Pharmacy, Bakery, and numerous places to eat, drink and watch the world go by.
Then of course there is Bosa Marina. The beach is lovely and in Summer great for small children with lots of enteratinment, bars and restaurants.
It takes less than 10 minutes to arrive here by car from the villa and we've never had a real problem parking the car; even in at peak season.
