This delightful villa is built in a quiet residential area in a panoramic and sunny. It is located about 100 mt. by a 7 km long sandy beach. Other small beaches are within walking distance. The house is located in Torre del Pozzo, coastal village in the municipality of Cuglieri about 20 km from Oristano.
The territory in Oristano is characterized by a great variety of sites of historical and archaeological interest, as Tharros (VIII century BC), Dogwood and Santa Cristina (nuragico settlement of great importance), and areas of great interest as the oasis of Torr'e Seu or the sea protected area of the Sinis Peninsula - island of Mal di Ventre.
The coast is beautiful, varied and still unspoiled and is characterized by coasts with valuable and sometimes unique landscape and environmental situations. In the lower sections of this coast sand and quartz grains of rare beauty have settled: in the higher sections, towering cliffs overlooking the sea acting as a lookout. The uniqueness of this part of Sardinia is provided by the extraordinary sensation of continuity between land and sea.
Oristano is the youngest and smallest Sardinia province. It is located on the west coast, near the longest river in the Tirso. Founded by the people fleeing from Tharros because of the barbarian invasions, Oristano was the capital of the Judge of Arborea. At the time of the Aragonese conquest, the city, in order to rid of the Pisan, fìrst ally with the Aragonese and then rose up against them. Oristano was the center of the uprising, whose leaders were Mariano IV, Hugh and Eleonorad'Arborea, which stipulated a collection of laws, the Charter Logu, then extended to other parts dellaSardegna, and in force until I827. On the death of the Judge Eleonora was suppressed, and Oristano became a marquis submissive to the Aragonese.
In 1470 Leonardo Alagon, after a fight against the Count of Quirra, which culminated in the Battle of Uras, managed to conquer the city, but a few years after King Ferdinand and confiscated the goods of the Marquis took the city after the Battle of Macon (I478 ), in which Leonardo Alagon was defeated and imprisoned. Under the Spanish Oristano went through a period of decline due to the barbarian invasions and the plague. With the coming of the Savoy, the city had a slow recovery, and became a commercial and agricultural center of some importance. In the twenties, the area was reclaimed, and has recently opened a large commercial port.
