The house is located in the medieval heart of Bosa known as Sa Costa. Tight streets with tall, prettily painted houses flank the hill dominated by the Castello Malaspina. There is a fifteenth century cathedral down by the palm lined river front. It is here that the fishing boats moor when not a sea.
The town is compact with shops, bars, restaurants and a weekly market all within a few minutes walking distance. Just down river at Bosa Marina the town beach has once again been ranked as one of the top 10 in Italy and given 5 flags by the Guida Blu. Bosa is a charming Sardinian town and whilst remaining unspoilt by tourism has a lot to offer.
