Description

Decent furnishings, including a large, new, fully-equipped kitchen. There are 2 large bedrooms, 1 with double bed, 1 with twin beds, and a spacious living room with large, new corner sofa that can allow sleeping space for a further 1 plus a pull-out single bed. The balconies (and bathroom!) have amazing views of the beach and along the coast. One bedroom has its own exclusive balcony, the other has a long connecting balcony that runs right around the property to the west-facing living room and then to the panoramic, glazed kitchen and dining room.

Under 5 minutes walk to Bosa’s beautiful deep and long sandy beach, with its excellent bars, seafood restaurants, pizzerias and gelataria. The sheltered, shallow bay offers calm and warm bathing, and contributes to make this relaxing seaside town a perfect destination for all ages. A short ride on the shuttle ‘train’ or 25 minutes walk along the palm fringed banks of the River Temo to historic Bosa old town.

A short ride on the shuttle ‘train’ or 25 minutes walk along the palm fringed banks of the River Temo to historic Bosa old town.

Notes on accommodation:

One thing we so love about staying in Bella Vista is to just chill out with a glass of chilled wine, while admiring the beautiful views. In the usually consistently fine weather of the summer, and the beach is so wide and long that one can always find some space for sunbathing and playing ball games. The sand is fine, soft and golden; the sea, calm and clear.

In low season, Bosa reverts to a charming, rather sleepy and contemplative mood - of course many of the restaurants and bars and seasonal, but we have never had a problem eating out and getting a drink throughout the year. Out of season, we more often make the short journey to the historic centre of Bosa old town for restaurants or nightlife (a mile or so - 2 to 3 kilometres).

Accessibility:

The apartment is on the third floor and there is no lift. Car parking is available in the small cul-de-sac just to the back of the apartment building. In high summer one may find it necessary to park about 30 or 40 metres further down the little back road in a large parking area. To date, all the parking in Bosa Marina has remained without charge.

Outside:

A superb location with extensive balconies - main bedroom with its own private balcony, second room with long balcony that passes around the outside of the apartment, connecting to the living room & kitchen.

Street cafes, bars, a variety of restaurants, gelateria (ice cream parlours) and pizzareria just a few minutes walk away, and there is an internet cafe directly opposite the apartment, which is open late and is very cheap.

Local cycle, boat hire, fishing & scuba diving trips are available a minute’s walk from the property, and one can fish from the nearby harbour wall and in the river estuary. A charming little station, a minute away, offers trips in a little old narrow-guage train, via a coastal scenic route, then up into the spectacular hills, past prehistoric castles, to the quaint medieval market town of Macomer.

Coast/beach:

It's just four or five minutes stroll to Bosa’s beautiful deep and long sandy beach, with its excellent bars, seafood restaurants, pizzerias and gelataria. The sheltered, shallow bay offers calm and warm bathing, and contributes to make this relaxing seaside town a perfect destination for holday makers of all ages.

Watersports are also available for rent, including canoes, windsurfers, dinghies and kite-surfing. Scuba training and diving excursions leave from the river harbour 1 minute away!

Travel:

Alghero (Fertilia) airport is under one hour's drive on a stunning coast road, or via an equally stunning drive through the inland hills. Car hire usually costs under E30 per day if booked in advance, online – check with us for our recommendations for the cheapest companies. There are also taxis and comfortable buses that serve Bosa, though you may need to change bus in Alghero town. We can provide further info on these. Cycling is popular, though the coast road may be quite busy in summer.

Distances:

Bosa historic old town is a short 3km ride on the shuttle ‘train’ or 30 minutes walk along the palm fringed banks of the River Temo - takes you to the heart of medieval Bosa old town, with its traditional restaurants bars, craft shops, banks and other services.

Alghero old town, with its restaurants, bars and clubs, is under an hour’s drive away, so can be visited for a day or evening out. Boat trips through the awe inspiring ‘Grotte di Neptuno’ sea caves are available from there or nearby.

Further details:

There are excellent restaurants, bars, cafes nearby & in Bosa old town & local shops a minute away. A large, modern supermarket, ‘Super Pan’, has recently opened in Bosa, 3km away - or there's the fish and fruit & veg markets in Bosa town, with the full range of local produce, delicacies & traditional specialities - wines, spirits, cheeses, hams, breads, cakes etc.

Both the river Temo & the sea around this coast team with fish - you can take a trip with Ricardo, local restauranteur & keen fisherman who has two boats that take holidaymakers of all abilities out to his favourite fishing spots -and he will also advise on how best to cook your catch.

There is much to see if you are interested in exploring the culture & traditional architecture of Bosa. Dominating the whole town is the impressive castle of Serravalle, built by the Malaspina family back in 1112. Within the walls of the restored castle, you can find the charming 14th century church with lovely frescoes. Another important building is the Cathedral, with its marble altars, built in 1805. On the left bank of the river Temo you will see a row of large stone tannery buildings. Restoration is beginning, and here you will find the Ponte Vecchio restaurant with its riverside tables, and a small but fascinating museum explaining the life of what was once a thriving tanning industry. Boat trips can also be taken to explore the river upstream - past a landscape of lush green gardens, fields & traditional farm houses; giving way to more rugged hills & finally a tranquil lake where the verdant river valley narrows to a gorge & spectacular cliffs.

Guest comments:

"We had a wonderful holiday. Both Bosa and Stintino lived up to our expectations. Your apartment is the best we have ever stayed in! The views are simply stunning…"

"So many highlights to our holiday…. Watching the moon rise on the balcony of your apartment, swimming in Bosa sea, a meal out in Bosa old town, sunrise on Pelosa Beach in Stintino ( we were crazy enough to get there for 7am!)"

"The views were stunning from the apartment, the locality of the delightful beach was perfect and the neighbours were friendly and a family party invited us to join them for drinks on one occasion when Chris was able to practise his Italian with them. We were amazed by the amount of history on the island, especially the Nuraghes."

"We had a terrific time in Bosa and thought your apartment was great."

"The apartment certainly lived up to its name and I shall be sad this evening not to be sitting on the balcony, with a glass of wine, watching the sun set over the sea..."

"We loved it - the spacious apartment, the views, the beach, the diving the people, the food - and the wine!"

"Incredible underwater caves and secret grottoes, along the coast nearby..."

"The flamingos at the Sinis (near Cabras) are there in huge flocks in August and it is an amazing sight. Also visited Neptunes Grotto (near Algherho) - well worth the visit."

"Tried out an Agritourisme - home made ravioli, lamb stew and suckling pig... this was after we visited Redecci (I think), a deserted village which they are now restoring as a tourist attraction."

"We felt like royalty with polished marble floors & great position overlooking the surrounding gardens, palm trees, beach and sun setting over the med."

"Thanks again to both of you for letting us have use of your lovely apartment for the week. We shall certainly be visiting Sardinia - and your idyllic apartment again."

Location description from owner

The Sardinia region

This Italian island, twelve kilometers to the south of Corsica - and ancient history, playplace of the Agha Khan and Italy's rich and famous, with it's own language, culture and customs. You will find many age-old traditions upheld here, especially in the Gennargentu mountains. Sardinia has exceptionally beautiful unspoiled nature. The countryside is mainly hilly and in some places mountainous. There is even a part which has been declared a nature reserve by Unesco.The landscape land inwards is determined by woods, chalk stone, old volcanoes, caves, springs, waterfalls and abysses. The coastline of 1800 kilometers is marked by the large inlets, bays, shell and pebble beaches and of course the crystal clear blue sea.Sardinia is also an island of contradictions. Besides the folklore like lifestyle and unspoiled nature, there are also genuine jet-set resorts on the Costa Smeralda in the North.The island also is home to number of archeological treasures, such as the "nuraghi", prehistoric towers of defense spread throughout. There are also a number of Roman remains such as the Roman amphitheater at Cagliari.
