Is Molas

Get a look even on the www.pula.it website!Pula town is really nice and well known, with its white sandy beach (SantEfisios, 15 minutes driving from the apt), the archaeologic area of Nora, and its Piazza with the cafès and summer theatre and music.At 10 minutes distance from the apt there is the Is Molas Golf Club, at 20 Km distance the Chia Laguna beaches and lagoon.The ancient city of Nora is positioned on the furthest point of Cape Pula, in front of Pula town, surrounded by the sea, connected to the mainland by a tiny isthmus. Thanks to the ancient traders Nora was developed into an unique and important point for the entire Sardinia isle.The name of the city is derived from the root word “nur” the same as that wich has been used for the ancient prehistorical Sardinian sites, the “Nuraghi” towers.In fact, many megalithic stones were discovered at Cape Pula and were later utilized for the Nora city’s buildings.Nora’s story began during the early 8th century B.C., when the Phoenicians, sailors and traders from the Mediterranean, decided to use that site as one of their first strongholds on the Sardinia island as confirmed by the most famous and ancient written document ever discovered in the Mediterranean, the “Stele” of Nora. Around the 6thcentury B.C. the Punics, inhabitants of Cartage city, located in the North African coast (now, Tunisia) were seen for the first time around the coast of Nora. It was during that period that the city of Nora really began to take shape: sacred buildings on the higher slopes and around the foot-hills, the residential and commercial districts, an extremely large number of water and storage tanks. It is from that moment on that Nora really became an important reference point for the commercial traders crossing the Mediterranean.However, it was during the Roman period, from the 227 B.C. year, that Nora reached the peak of its expansion and development. Some of the original Punic buildings were destroyed or modernized by the Romans.During the 1st century ad, Nora officially became a roman Municipium, and lot of monumental buildings were erected, most of them still visible today: the Forum, the teathre, four thermal baths, temples, huge mansions and villas, the insulae, the aqueductus and, last but not least, the amphitheatre, wich unfortunately has been destroyed.During the 5th century a.c. started the Nora decline, the Mediterranean coastlines became dangerous and Nora, as the other coast cities of Sardinia, became prey of the devastating strength of Vandals then, during the 8th century a.c., the Saracens violently attacked burning the city almost to the ground, forcing the remaining inhabitants to flee towards the inland areas, where they gave birth to the new village of Pula.The defense tower on the peak of Coltellazzo was built during 1595 from Spanishes, as part of the Sardinian coast protection program.at 15 minutes distance driving from the apt there are the Is Cannoneris and Guturu Mannu hills and forest (the larger forest of Sardinia), a protected area, where you can have a walk and see and hear, expecially in spring, deers and wild boars.You can even reach the forest by bycicle or by feet from the apt (bycicles are provided, anyway get a look on http://www.aiosardegna.it/hellopula/happy/menhir.htm, they organise bycicle tours in the forest area and elsewhere around Pula village).The protected area is perfect for horse-rides (ask the owner about), and well-known for the high quality of myrtle and mushrooms. In this area lives a large community of deer, but you can see also the golden eagle hovering in the air.At 15 minutes distance by feet, the Is Molas Golf Club, with its 27-hole golf course, technically demanding, spectacular and exciting .The Is Molas golf course is one of the most famous in Italy, and has been the benchmark for this sport in Sardinia for over thirty years. Thanks to the proximity of the sea and the protection of the surrounding hills the locality of Is Molas enjoys a unique microclimate, mild and particularly favourable for golf all year round: the temperature reaches 20 degrees C at the beginning of the spring, rises to over 30 in summer and even in December and January can easily exceed 15 degrees. The golf course at Is Molas was the first in Sardinia and with its twenty-seven holes is the largest on the island. The eighteen holes of the championship course have been created out of a collaboration between the Cotton, Pennink & Partners studio and Piero Mancinelli. The greens and bunkers are American in size and style, while the fairways are broad enough to forgive a slice. The Is Molas championship course is considered one of the most technically satisfying and spectacular courses not just in Italy, but in the whole of the Mediterranean area. It has staged many prestigious competitions, including four Italian Opens and a European Volvo Masters. The nine holes of the Yellow Course, the most difficult to play, have been laid out by Franco Piras, Gary Player Design’s representative in Italy. The presence, along the course, of all the typical species of Sardinia’s native flora and the Mediterranean macchia makes the Is Molas Golf Club a beautiful garden with a view of the sea. The Club House is elegant and well-equipped: there is a bar with a panoramic terrace, a pro shop and the Ristorante Is Molas, open at lunchtime and for special occasions, which offers a creative Mediterranean cuisine based on local Sardinian products. It is possible to hire a cart, set of clubs and other equipment. Is Molas is also the seat of the Dan Williamson Academy, where golf lessons and courses can be booked.

“Great villa set in beautiful gardens with pool, very close to Pula and beaches.”

Reviewed 22 Aug 2011

We really enjoyed our 2 week stay at Villa Maria. It has a beautiful pool and big garden to relax in, surrounded by countryside. The house has everything you need and is very comfortable. Pula town is a delight and very close by. Many beaches to choose from 10 mins away. We were well looked after. Thank you.
