Location description from owner
The Sardinia region
Someone says that a piece of art is like an island because it is very easy to admire its perimeter, and most are pleased with it, but it is very difficult to a way inside.Sardinia is exactly like this, not only because it is an island, but even the landscape which is 68% hills. Its charm is not only on the coast that are considered one of the most beautiful in the world with his fine white sand beaches, its almost inaccessible reefs, its ample gulfs and creeks. This landscape's variousness is the reason of the swell in tourism in the last 30 years.Sardinia is also mystery and history in his hinterland: it is able to combine tourism and traditions, modernity and history in order to create one of the most characteristic human and environmental landscape in the world. Since his birth, Sardinia has been isolated in the middle of Mediterranean that is why it is so mysterious for people coming from other countries.The climate is typical of the Mediterranean. The weather is clear. During the year approximately 300 days are sunny and the few others are rainy, with a major concentration of rainfall in the winter. The mistral is the dominant wind, fresh, strong, and usually dry and cold, blowing from the Northwest throughout the year, but most frequently in winter.
Our region, named Sarrabus is in the south east of Sardinia Island.The hamlet is far about 60 km (less of 1 hour by car) from Cagliari, between Muravera and Castiadas. Muravera is a little town with all kind of shops and is far 17 km. 10 minutes by car from our hamlet, there’s a big beach of Feraxi and Colostrai, very wild and desert. The water isn't deep, the water is very warm, it's perfect for children. In our web site there are some photos about it. About 20 minutes by car there’s a big white beach of Costa Rey (10 km long). The sea has a wonderful green colour.A big archaeological site named Nuraghe Arrubiu is about 1,5 hour by car. It’s a very big megalithic structure 3.500 years old.Near the hamlet (4 km) there’s a pizzeria very good and many typical restaurant not expensive.The Sarrabus produce red wines (cannonau, monica), white wine (vermentino, nuragus), best quality olive oil and many farm next our hamlet produce it.Near our house there's the possibility to practice many sports: trekking, sailing, diving, riding, cycling, parachute...

“Schönes Haus mit viel Platz und unkompliziertem Gastgeber”
Unsere Wohnung war sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet, und es hatte alles, was wir benötigten - auch für unsere Kinder (1 und 3 Jahre). Das Haus mit den insgesamt 3 Wohnungen eignet sich auch sehr gut für einen Aufenthalt mit befreundeten Familien: Es gibt einen grossen Innenhof, daneben verfügt nach aussen jede Wohnung über eine grosszügige private Terrasse. In rund 15 Minuten mit dem Auto erreicht man gleich mehrere schöne Strände, die verschiedene Bedürfnisse abdecken. Wir waren zwei Wochen da und haben fast jeden Tag einen anderen Strand besucht. Für Einkäufe sind wir meistens nach Olia Speciosa gefahren (knapp 10 Minuten), wo man nahezu alles findet, was man so braucht. Enrico ist ein perfekter Gastgeber: Niemals aufdringlich, aber jederzeit zur Stelle, wenn man ihn braucht; zudem ein interessanter Gesprächspartner, der neben italienisch ausgezeichnet französisch und englisch spricht, die Gegend sehr gut kennt und uns mit vielen hilfreichen Tipps versorgt hat. Und zu einem sehr fairen Preis nimmt er einen auch mit auf sein Segelschiff!
“Cosy Sardinian Farm in a quiet and green neighbourhood”
Abba Arrubia is a large but very cosy farm-house adopted for tourists. It consists of 4 apartments located on 4 corners of the building with large courtyard in the center, well separated, each one with roofed terrace. In fact our apartment had even two. We had large living room and the kitchen and 2 bedrooms. I really liked the "attitude" of the house. It is not a super-clean and luxury place, but very cosy, comfortable and perfectly located, far form the village and busy tourist "villages", however a car is a must. Roads to the coast are good. Every day we visited different beach and there are many in the near neighbourhood. It is only 15 minutes drive to the beautiful Costa Rei. The landlord Enrico was very friendly. He welcomed us with the local wine Vermentino and Sardinian cakes. He was helpful and cared about our well-being during our stay. I fully recommend this place to the people who prefer quiet locations to busy tourist villages and do not mind driving to the nearest beaches. I also reccomend eating out in the only Pizzeria in San Priamo served by very friendly twin sisters ...
“a lovely get away from it all bolt hole”
This is our 3rd time here so we like it ! I love the peace of the accommodation ,listening to cuckoos or frogs croaking - the beach is perfect for childeren 15 mins drive away and Enrico is very welcoming and looks after the properties well. The trip on the yacht was a bonus - grazia!
“Very nice, relaxed and quiet”
the host, mr. currreli, is very hospitable and helpful. the house is located in a wonderful and quiet region (wonderful beaches!) and it is perfect for a relaxed vacation - everything you need is available. an own car is absolutely recommended.
“ruhig und abgelegen, in schöner Umgebung, sehr empfehlenswert”
Sehr freundlicher und hilfsbereiter Besitzer;, sehr schönes Anwesen; alles wie in der Beschreibung; sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet; etwas abgeschieden (ca. 8 km zur nächsten Ortschaft mit Bar und Einkaufsmöglichkeit)), dennoch mit dem Auto alles in 10-15 min. erreichbar; viele sehr gute Privatanbieter von Eigenanbau in der Umgebung ("Hofläden" mit Orangen, Honig, Olivenöl, Bäcker, Käse, Gemüse) ; wir hatten eine sehr schöne Zeit.
sehr schön gelegenes .großes Haus mit freundlichem Vermieter,etwas hellhörig,falls eine weitere Familie das 2.Haus mitbewohnt,wir kommen wieder.
Thank you very much my kind guests for their positive opinion, but I'm a bit sorry for the opinion expressed about the proximity of the second house. First of all the house was unoccupied at the time. Then no one has ever complained, indeed, the structure being isolated, all were always happy to exchange every now and then a chat or exchange information.
“coup de coeur pour cette maison”
Très bonne appréciation pour cette maison de vacances située au sud de la Sardaigne. Très bonnes prestations, qualité du bâti, calme et à 15 mn de la mer. Nous étions avec nos 3 enfants qui ont également apprécié.
“Very nice place and people”
The owner is very very nice. He helped us with activities. The place is beautiful and located in a quiet area.
“Une grande maison dans les vignes entre mer et montagne”
Un endroit idéal pour se ressourcer et profiter du soleil de la Sardaigne, de la mer, de la montagne. Abba Arrubia est bien située, à une dizaine de minutes en voiture de grandes plages presque désertes. La maison est très agréable, bien conçue, pratique. Un terrasse permet de déjeuner, de diner, de se reposer en toute tranquillité. Nous avons passé une semaine très agréable et nous aimons y retourner. Les propriétaires sont très charmants et très amicaux.
