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
The location is suitable for the tourist which loves nature and history as well fragrances and flavors of the food and wines of Sardinia.

Pretty House is a sweet cottage of 100 sq.m., countryside, submerged in a flowered fruit garden of 1000sqm, well protected and encircled side to side. Inside parking for two cars. Two verandah and barbecue.
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,
A SARDINIA NOT CROWDED BY TOURISTS, THEREFORE A MAGIC SARDINIA!
