Location description from owner

The Sardinia region

Sardinia has the most beautiful clear water sea of the Mediterraneo, coupled with fine sand and quartz beaches. It is possible to enjoy the sea from April to October. Besides the sea, there are rivers full of fishes, amazing salt lakes with flamingoes and other unique birds. The mountains have deep gorges and waterfall.
Sardinia is not only about nature, archeologically it houses some of the most ancient civilizations: the Nuraghi with their misterious stone towers, the Phoenician and Roman built the town of Tharros. There are also numerous examples of romanic churches, built after the year 1000 a.C. All year long there are special feasts and rituals, like Carnevale, horse races and numerous religiuos event of special anthropological interest.
Sardinia is a region to be enjoyed all year long for the natural beauty, the historical- cultural interest and least but not last its cooking speciality.

“Lovely flat, friendly owner, great weather!”

Reviewed 11 Oct 2011

The owner - Francesca - lives next door to the flat and is extremely friendly and helpful. Her English is outstanding (non Italian speakers should be warned that very few others in the area do) and has done up the flat to a very high and modern standard. I strongly recommend visitors hire a car, as the village is quite cut off and buses are more or less metaphorical. With Francesca as a neighbour, you are privileged to local knowledge on the best restaurants and places of interest etc. Stunning beaches are about 20 mins by car, Oristano (the nearest town) likewise. If I were forced to give negatives, I would say Sardinia is generally quite poor and it's fairly run-down in places, so don't expect to be welcomed with open arms wherever you go. As a tourist, you are spectacularly conspicuous and not always beloved. That said, I found the people in Riola itself to be very kind indeed and I met a lot of lovely people from there and elsewhere. It's also probably worth mentioning that the washing machine is shared with Francesca and costs 7 Euros to use. Overall, though, I loved my time at Via Marconi and there's no doubt it's exceptional value for money. The scenery is amazing, the flat is extremely comfortable and well looked-after, and there is some magnificent local food (the ice cream and seafood are particular highlights). There's a courtyard where you can sit out in the evenings, and a garden too (I was treated to figs straight off the tree on arrival). Recommended!

“Magical”

Reviewed 8 Jul 2011

This is a wonderful place. Helpful, well-organized and very welcoming, it has a great deal to offer people wanting to relaxe, enjoy beautiful beaches and the delights of rural Sardinian life (wild boar, flocks of pink flamingos flying overhead, amazing food - fish, cheese, wine, fruit, etc, etc). But its very knowledgeable owner is also an excellent source of information about the remarkable prehistoric, Palaeolithic, Phoenician, Roman and Christian sites in the vicinity. 5 days was far too short. A longer stay, possibly off-season, would be a very attractive prospect.
