Our charming and much loved traditional house right in the heart of Alghero old town. Very recently renovated with a new bathroom and kitchen in a simple, rustic style. There are two large bedrooms, one with two single beds and one double (two singles pushed together). One bedroom has a balcony looking on to the street. The house is on three floors: its own front door leading up the stairs to bedroom one on the first floor, bedroom two and the bathroom on the second floor and the kitchen diner on the third floor leading directly onto a magnificent private terrace which has views over the old town and the cathedral. The terrace has sun loungers, a table for six to eat at and a barbeque. There is a washing machine in a store cupboard on the terrace. Please note that it is a characterful old house and you will need to mind your head on some low ceilings on the way up to the kitchen and on the height of some doorways!
The house is on a pedestrianized street so apart from morning deliveries there are no cars or motorbikes. But please note that whilst there are no cars, you are right in the heart of the historic town and as such there's a fair amount of general hubbub of the people going their way to and from restaurants and cafés. The amazing benefit of this is having everything on your doorstep - you may hear a jazz band playing in the square at the end of the road, or look out of the balcony to see a solemn religious procession pass by the front door. Equally there are a great number of fantastic places to eat that are moments away as are a great array of shops and boutiques.
The walls of the old town are a few minutes' walk and the nearest sandy beach is 20 minutes walk along the seafront, although you can have a swim two minutes from the house just outside the bastion walls on a small town beach mostly frequented by locals. There is a fruit and veg market and a fish market about 2 minutes walk from the house along with several supermarkets.
Alghero Old Town really is a beautiful place and the gorgeous house is right in the heart of this charming Sardinian town.
