Description from owner

Description

Villa Canapiglia is set in the legendary village of Port Rafael. One of the prime locations on the Costa Smeralda, it has maintained the original charm and flavour, and is untouched by mass tourism, since it has no hotels, but only residential villas. Continually patrolled by guards, the village has high security.

Being one of the original late 1960's villas, Canapiglia is set in a prime location, 5 min walk from the famous 'Piazzetta' and the sea, in a perfect spot between cliffs and Mediterranean vegetation. From the large terrace and rooftop one has a spectacular view of the sea, the town of Palau and the the beautiful Arcipelago della Maddalena (a National Park composed of 7 islands).

The villa offers a wonderful setting for a family holiday or a romantic break in one of the most beautiful seascapes in the world. There are several beaches at either walking distance or at a short drive away. The emerald sea of the islands of the Maddalena Archipelago is just a boat

Location description from owner

The Sardinia region

Sardinia is the second largest island in the Mediterranean sea and is famous for The beaches of Sardinia, running after one another in the almost 2000 kilometres of coast, sometime interrupted by rocky formations and port constructions, frame real paradise-like corners. The sea is famously clear and runs from shades of pastel blue to emerald, while fine sand or pebble shores give way to stretches of granite cliffs carved by time. Sardinia has both a mundane and a savage character. in the summer , when all the holiday makers flock to its beautiful beaches it can be quite festive and loud. One still can escape into its beautiful inland, so full of mystery and wildlife.

The food is excellent and in the summer many cultural activities take place.

Porto Rafael

Porto Rafael is set in a perfect location between cliffs, Mediterranean vegetation and the sea and it looks over the beautiful Arcipelago della Maddalena (a National Park composed of 7 islands). Visiting Sardinia in the early sixties, Count Raphael Neville, a Spanish-English aristocrat fell in love with this spot and decided to make it his permanent home. He built a very small nucleus of villas and the famous seaside ‘Piazzetta’ and tiny Church of Santa Rita, which still represent the heart of the village. In the late 1960’s a British-Italian company built more villas around the original nucleus, using famous architects and taking care to maintain Count Neville’s vision of perfect integration between construction and nature (Villa Canapiglia is one of the original hub of villas and it has been completely restored to its original beauty). To this day Porto Rafael has one of the strictest town planning laws and when traveling by sea one can hardly detect the villas on the side of the hill. Walking around the small village though one can admire the tasteful constructions that confirm the motto that Neville inscribed on his house: "dreaming is living."

Very close to Porto Rafael there is the busy town of Palau, with beaches, shopping, night life and boat tours to the islands.

A ferry leaves every 15/30 minutes to the island of La Maddalena and Caprera. The ride takes aboy 15 minutes. L' Isaola dei Gabbiani, a prime location for wind-surfers, is about 15 min drive and also offers beach restaurants and night clubs.f Porto Cervo and Porto Rotondo are about 40 minutes away.

We also strongly suggest visiting the inland , the splendid ruggedness of the Supramonte mountains or the murales of Orgosolo.
