Further details outdoors

The villa is immersed in acres of Mediterranean vegetation on one side of a narrow valley carved by a little stream. The villa faces towards the sea whereas on the other sides is surrounded by green bushes, trees and pink granite rocks. The scenario is stunning and the area quite and peaceful. Yet, the villa is only 2km away from the first of a series of white sand beaches, some of them with basic facilities (car parks, bars), others with windsurfing schools, canoeing rental etc. At the touristic harbour Marina di Portisco (2km away) it is possible to rent motor and sail dinghies for exploring the coast nearby or play tennis on nearby courts.

Going inland from the villa, the pretty village of San Pantaleo and its impressive granite rocks are only 3km away. Shops, restaurants and all amenities can be reached both in Portisco and in San Pantaleo.

The Sardinia region

D H Lawrence remarked that Sardinia is "lost between Europe and Africa and belonging to nowhere". However, identity is not an issue for the people of Sardinia - for them the island belongs, of course, to itself. They vigorously retain their traditions and colourful festivals, while across the length and breadth of Sardinia's interior the remains of ancient monuments serve as reminders of an enigmatic culture that pre-dates their customs and history.

Sardinia has 1,850km of coastline and a staggering variety of landscapes: from dramatic cliffs to sand dunes, marshes and long, golden shores. The interior is a mix of plateaux, plains and mountains - the highest point is Punta La Marmora in the Gennargentu Massif, at just 1,834m.

Inland, Sardinia is dotted with enigmatic ancient remains in the form of 7,000 Bronze Age stone nuraghe. These massive round towers had most likely a defensive purpose and experts recently suggested that their location forms a network that would have enabled them to comunicate through fire torches on the top of the tower and get prepared to battle in case of invasions from the sea. The early inhabitants also constructed sacred wells and tombs guarded by standing stones (betyls) in male and female form.

The island has many and varied festivals, which take place year-round and generally honour saints' days or are linked to the farming year. Among the most important is Festa di Sant'Efisio at Cagliari, from 1-4 May. Pilgrims from all over Sardinia gather to venerate the saint, whose effigy is paraded around on an ox-drawn carriage. In the evening, shows and folk concerts are performed in the capital.

Many dramatic festival take place: at Sedilo in central Sardinia, the Ardia, held on 6 and 7 July, is a chaotic horse race that celebrates the victory of Roman emperor Constantine over Maxentius in 312AD. The route requires very skilled horsemen who must control their mounts against the background cacophony of crowds and gunfire. There are also plenty of events related to the carnival in February, they are rituals that originate from thousand of years ago and they still retain their fascinating ancestral flavour.

In August, an international Jazz Festival is held in Berchidda, Gallura, over 5-6 days. Artists play open-air in beautiful natural settings as well as on stage in Berchidda and in hystorical countryside churches around it.

Portisco

Costa Smeralda:

Sardinia's most famous tourist area, put on the international tourist map by the Aga Khan's purchase and development of a stretch of empty coastline in the sixties.

Development of the area has been strictly controlled, meaning the main centres of Porto Cervo, Porto Rotondo and Portisco have been constructed in a very specific style, are carefully manicured, and created to attract visitors with high disposable incomes and a desire for luxury and high end shopping. These resorts have a central shopping and restaurant area, clustered around a marina.

Portisco is much more orientated to its marina and visitors arriving by sea than its siblings. The marina offers boat trips and rental.

Aside the development around the marina, there is a great choice of coastline's beaches, and most of them retain their unpoiled look with only basic facilities of minimal environmental impact.

San Pantaleo is a friendly village, nestled between towering headlands of granite. Historically, it was one of the villages situated on the Roman road to Santa Teresa and the ports of the sea and country.

The village of San Pantaleo is a kind of Tower of Babel of craftsmen with amazing and exclusive productions. One for all is Petra Sarda, a team of potters who work with stoneware, a mixture of clay and metal oxides that requires a process of weeks before giving birth to the author's unique pottery, which are exported around the world. In town there are master blacksmiths, skilled in creating works of art in wrought iron, and the marquetry workers, creating sculptures in wood with only the hammer and chisel, using a technique almost as old as the history of the island.

For those interested in culture and archeology, there are a few little museums and sites worth visiting:

"Lovely house, beautiful setting!"

A modern but beautiful house, surfaced in the local stone. Stunning location with a generous garden area overlooking gorge leading down to an ocean view; dramatic granite hills behind the house leading up to the pleasant village of San Pantaleo. Very friendly and kind locals.

The house is perfectly private and not overlooked. The rooms are simply and tastefully done in the classic white vernacular, and the house feels very spacious. A perfect place for a romantic / family holiday. We will definitely stay here again!
