Arrival day: Saturday Car hire: Recommended
Art Apartment is a one-off – a little gem peeping out from between the imposing granite rocks of San Pantaleo and looking across the beautiful scenery to the shimmering Mediterranean Sea.
The view alone merits a stay here but the icing on the cake is the super pool, exclusive to this apartment making it the perfect hideaway for two.
The apartment is part of a stylish house – home to the lovely owner, Umberto, who fell in love with this special part of Sardinia over 40 years ago and never left. The architecture is original in all senses and the building is adorned with the most original of touches.
Art Apartment is simply furnished internally – built in the 60s the retro style is still evident. There is a good size lounge that opens out on to the pool and terrace, a double bedroom, a shower room and a small kitchen. A few wacky furnishings will keep you amused, the favourite being a showcase of the most beautiful shoes made in porcelain by one of Umberto’s great friends.
Sitting above the village of San Pantaleo, you may choose to walk down to the village – just under 1km. If the moon is out this will illuminate the road otherwise a torch will be needed for the first 400 metres.
Art Apartment is not for guests looking for a standard run-of-the-mill apartment. For those people seeking something unique, unusual, delightful and off the beaten track then this is exactly for you. That is why we at Essential Italy love it.

We had an amazing time in San Pantaleo. Essential Italy were very helpful in assisting me with finding the accommodation and providing additional information about the apartment. Sarah was very welcoming, friendly and helpful when meeting us relatively late at night after delays to our flight. Umberto, the owner of the apartment, was the most wonderful, genuine and kind person - one of our best holidays yet. July 2019
