About the home
This studio was built 2008 as an addition to the already well established Calarossa Residence. We own both this apartment (sleeps max 4) and Villa Marisa Holiday Lettings ref 215087 (sleeps max 6)
Complete freedom to self cater or dine out in residence or nearby (car essential) or mix and match as you please. Supplement of £80 for gas/water/elec/cleaning and fresh linen and towels. Residence in high season is very family friendly with many organised activities and entertainments including a children's club (July/Aug) at extra cost payable on-site. Within easy reach of historic town of Castelsardo as well as all resorts along beautiful Costa Paradiso.

The residence's outstanding feature is the stupendous coastline. The cleanliness of the sea here means superb watersports.

Another recommendation is La Tana di Li Mazzoni
The Sardinia region
Sardinia, or Sardegna in Italian, is the largest island in the Mediterranean but perhaps one of the least known. It is part of Italy but in reality the locals refer to Italy as "the continent" and are certainly proud to be different.
With its wild beauty, crystal clear waters, expansive beaches, fabulous climate and fragrant air it is a favourite holiday destination for the Italians. And the locals do everything possible to retain all it's charm. With it's proximity to Africa it enjoys a fabulous year round sunny climate.
The Costa Paradiso / Calarossa area
The Calarossa Residence and private beach lies in an unspoilt natural environment on the island's NW coast, just a few km from the charming port town of Isola Rossa. The gardens of Calarossa won the Homes Overseas Gold Award for Best Landscape Design and with it's small squares and stone archways it blends perfectly with the natural surroundings. Book with confidence. Over 200 guests in 5 years. Beach 350m walk and facilities include 3 pools inc Kids pool as well as tennis courts and entertainment in High Season.

We stayed in the studio apartment and very much enjoyed our stay. The apartment was very clean with a well equipped kitchen and an ample sized bathroom, the only negative I could say was the bed as it was a pull out sofa bed! The resort itself was ok, although they seemed to have a wake up call by the pool at 9.30 consisting of Italian music and dancing! The beach was only a 5 minute walk along a sand path or la marinedda beach was a 15 minute walk away which was very nice! Overall for the price we can have little complaints about this accommodation and would recommend to anyone.
The residence is marketed by Pierre & Vacance as being very family friendly. They employ a team of staff called "animators" who are on hand during high season to organize activities for the children and ensure they are provided with a wealth of activities through the day. We have found that a firm "No thank you" will keep them at bay if you do not wish to get involved. For the music, this is pretty standard for any Italian beach resort throughout July and August. If you are looking for a quiet time to go, try April/May or Sept/Oct

A very nice studio apartment on a purpose built holiday complex with excellent facilities. A private beach which is perfect for an evening stroll to watch the sunset. A car is essential when staying on this complex as the only access to the main highway is via a 4 kilometer unmade road. There are numerous villages and beaches which are only a short drive from the complex.
We would strongly recommend a car for almost any location in Sardinia, unless you plan simply a city break in Alghero or Cagliari

We stayed for 12 days at the Calarossa Residence out of season around Mid-May. The weather was fantastic (between 25-30 degrees) except for two days when it was windy/raining. We stayed in a studio flat which was nice with an outside balcony although you need to be careful if you have young children but it was great for enjoying a glass of wine in the late afternoon/evening. Be warned that the main facilities are not open until June including the swimming pool but we prefer it less crowded so it was fine for us. It would have been nice if the playground had been kept fairly accessible as it was a bit too overgrown to use. There is a lovely looking (but stony) beach less than 5 min from the development and a fantastic sandy beech in the next bay about 20min walk from the development. The location is great for driving around the North of the island and we would especially recommend going to Corsica for the day which was our best excursion. All in all, we enjoyed it
We are fortunate enough to have our own Calarossa beach within a few minutes walk. This is a sandy beach great for sunbathing and swimming, though it does go to pebbles and rocks under the water so plastic swimming shoes would be a great idea. For a completely sandy beach Marrinedda is 5 minutes walk across the dunes - strangely it takes longer to drive to than walk.
The "Miami Beach" of the area is at Badesi, a long sandy beach of some 4km which is 20 minutes drive to the south.
