This covered porch is the most desirable for a pleasant summer vacation: outdoor dining with BBQ, comfortable chairs, a sofa, and lounge chairs for your reading, your rest and work on your tan. Everything always in the open air, in 'shade of a canopy of wisteria.

The location of Villamassargia allows both to enjoy the relaxing country side in the middle of nature, as well to reach the sea in just 18 km. The coast is beautiful and very varied: white sand beaches, but also small bays and coves surrounded by rocky cliffs. We can point to the beaches of Plagemesu, Fontanamare, Masua, Cala Domestica, Buggerru, and also those of Porto Pino, Porto Botte and Sant'Antioco.

We recommend visits to abandoned mines, and to the remains of the civilization Phoenician, Carthaginian and Roman in Sant'Antioco and Iglesias

Further details

Pretty House is located in Villamassargia, a small town characteristic of the sweet Sulcis-Iglesiente, laying between hills and plains. It's the best starting point for visiting this south west side of Sardinia, still untouched, with the wild sea shores still not covered by cement and buildings. You can find here wild creeks and sea rocks, but also large, white, and quiet sandy beaches. It's an area rich of nature, wilderness, genuineness.

The history of Sulcis-Iglesiente is a history of poor but audacious and boastful shepherds, fishermen and miners. You can visit the old mines in MINIERE VISITABILI. Do not forget the fish restaurants of Isola di Sant'Antioco and Carloforte,

Villamassargia is a little town in the middle of a big valley all around the Cixerri River. The country is rich of Mediterranean plants and overall of olive threes. Here nature is generous and there is the opportunity of tasting a big variety of biological food: olive oil, honey, milk and cheese. The first economical activity in Villamassargia is textile small industry thanks to a very old tradition.

History: In medieval times, Villamassargia was the richest village of South- West Sardinia. The memory of this glorious past is kept in the Historical Park of S’Ortu Mannu (there are huge number of olive threes planted in 1300) and two Romanic Churches in downtown: Santa Maria della Neve and Nostra Signora del Pilar.

At the beginning of XX century Villamassargia was a miners’ town: many of its inhabitants worked in Orbai Mine, where today there is still an old village.
