Pitrali Pool Apartments, Monte Pedrosu, Sardinia
The Pitrali Pool Apartments are set in pretty gardens just under 2 kms from Cala Girgolu Beach, a picture postcard arc of sand edging a turquoise sea, rather quaintly serviced, when we visited in high season, by a small boat which stopped by, serving gelato (ice cream), cold drinks and coffees from its deck.
The three pastel lemon and natural stone apartments share a lovely swimming pool bordered by paved and lawn terraces which is fenced and gated, for the peace of mind of those with small children. Keeping one apartment for their own occasional use, the truly charming Sardinian Doctor owners are looking forward to welcoming their English guests to the remaining two apartments. Both have been tastefully furnished to maintain their light and airy appeal and offer ideal holiday accommodation. The kitchen areas of the open plan living rooms are both nicely tiled with stained wood units and equipped with a full cooker, microwave and fridge/freezer, with a dining table nearby for the occasions when you aren't eating outside and a sofa and chairs. There is a washing machine in both tiled shower rooms.
The pretty gardens have mostly been laid to lawn with lemon and olive trees and plantings of amongst other flowering shrubs, an eye catching sky blue plumbago. A purpose built barbeque in the garden is for the use of the occupants of either apartments.
The village of Monte Pedrosu is just under 1km away, within a 15 mins stroll and offers a choice of two or three trattorias, as well as a café/bar, a butcher and a minimarket but if you like to be spoilt for choice, then you won't be disappointed by the small town of San Teodoro, just a 10 mins drive with an array of shops and restaurants and also coincidentally blessed with a vast gently shelving white sand beach that would compete on equal terms with some of the best of the Caribbean.
We consider car hire useful, but please bear in mind that if you intend arriving by means of bus from Olbia Airport (4 per day) you will need to carry your luggage the last 900m - taxis are few and far between in Sardinia.
Pitrali Sea View Apartment
On the upper level, the highlight of this apartment is its sizeable tiled terrace with wonderful sea views over the rooftops. French doors from this terrace open into the living area, furnished in simple and summery style with a rattan sofa and chairs, TV (with satellite reception), DVD player and small dresser.
The kitchen area is prettily finished in a combination of neutral and aqua tiles and pine units highlighted in sky blue, a colour repeated in the dining table.
The double bedroom, to the rear of the apartment, has uninterrupted sea views across Capo Cavallo and is decorated in easy light neutral shades. The second bedroom, with French doors out to a sunny terrace has twin beds and a full sized 'day bed' for a third person. Between the two bedrooms is a shower room, where the washing machine is stationed.

The Sardinia region
Sardinia, the second largest island in the Mediterranean, a name familiar to many but hitherto relatively unknown as a holiday destination, Sardinia has over 1,800km of coastline, much of it utterly unspoilt and fringed by white sand beaches lapped by crystal clear waters.
The Gulf of Orosei on the Sardinian east coast and just over an hours drive south from Olbia Airport covers an area of some 80 square kilometres from Cape Comino in the north to Cape Di Monte Santo further south. Noted for its craggy white cliffs and powder white coves backed by wild and uninhabited mountainous regions, it's wonderful country for hikers and nature lovers. Here too, the coastal waters of Sardinia are so clean and clear that colonies of beautiful coral grow on the seabed and the myriadas of fish and other marine fauna attract Scuba divers from around the world, as well as the local fisherman of course.
The medieval market town of Orosei, from which the area takes its name, stands on the banks of the River Cedrino and boasts a number of lovely old churches and a warren of narrow cobbled streets leading to numerous small piazzas. The town is surrounded by lush green farmland bursting with orange and olive plantations and edged with a spectacular stretch of coastline and many, many kilometres of powder white sand beaches fringed by fragrant pinewoods.
Matching the beauty of its coastline, the hinterland of Sardinia is a magnificent and uncompromising landscape of high rugged mountains, deep gorges and rolling wooded countryside, still in some places inhabited by wild boar, a Sardinian delicacy and quite commonly featured on the menus of restaurants throughout the island.
Although wild boar might not be to everyone's taste, the local seafood, cheeses and various pasta dishes are extremely good. Olbia, in the north of Sardinia is particularly renowned for its mussel beds and cozze alla marinara (aka moules marine ) is a favourite starter. However for something unique, try the local seafood risotto, flamboyantly flavoured by hard little crustaceans and absolutely delicious!
Finally, its worth mentioning that the East Coast of Sardinia including the area of Orosei and many parts of Sardinia for that matter remain refreshingly Non-Anglicised and a phrase book can be useful for interpreting menus and general communication.
Monte Pedrosu, Sardinia
As the saying goes, less is often more and this can truly be said of the little village of Monte Pedrosu. A convenient 25 kms from Olbia, its supermarket, butcher, choice of 2 restaurants, cafe and a hairdresser more than adequately meet the immediate needs of the population in its vicinity, supplemented by the occasional traveling shop selling artisan products.
The rural community spreads east of the old coast road (now superceded by a motor way rolling south of Olbia further inland) towards the Capo Coda Cavallo where the granite rock is blanketed in spring by brightly coloured blossoms of the maquis vegetation, filling the air with the spicy aroma of lavender, thyme, myrtle and rosemary.
Back on the coast, there is a seemingly infinite choice of beaches and coves, some accessible by car and others only by foot, continuing around the promontory to the 3km stretch of white sand at San Teodoro. The "local beach" Cala Girgolu is an arc of sand framed by junipers and rose-coloured granite and any lack of facilities is made up for by a visiting boat selling gelato, cool drinks and heady espresso coffee from its deck. The seascape here is haphazardly scattered with uninhabited small islands and dominated by the Isola Tavolara, once a kingdom in its own right.
A "must see" is Cala Brandinchi, nick-named Tahaiti because of its exotic appearance with fine sand surrounded by resinous pine forest, but you will undoubtedly find your own favourite strand.

In May Monte Pedrosu is as quiet as quiet can be - Super view from the balcony which has loads of space to sit and eat either in front of the patio doors or under shade to the side. The apartment is well appointed with loads of space for two. I have stayed here with my husband the year before and sister this year. A number of fabulous restaurants are only a 10 minute walk away. And 2 minutes up the road you can sit in the lovely garden of the hotel and share a pre dinner aperitivo. The village of monte pedrosu is lovely with a littel cafe and a small buy everything yu need shop nest to a fabulous takeaway fresh pizzeria. A 20 - 30 minute walk (down the hill) brings you to a delightful little beach with crystal clear water and if you are lucky a little boat arrives in the afternoon selling crepes, gelati and coffee - in off peak this is a bit unreliable. It's a different place in peak season but still delightful.

Fabulous apartment and pool with great views. We loved the walk to the village stopping on the way for a cocktail at the hotel terrace which has free wifi. Wonderful places to eat and a lovely little shop for provisions. Fresh pasta and sweet shop opens in June. Beach a 30 minute walk away with idyllic beach and a boat that arrives to sell granita, crepes and coffee. My sister was here in August when it was crazy busy. June was perfect. We are booking to go back as soon as we can!
