Arrival day: Saturday Car hire: Recommended
Casa Rafael boasts a spectacular position in Porto Rafael, nestled among the rocks within steps straight onto the small beach. The views from the front terrace are glorious and stretch out over the bay to the fabulous Archipelago of La Maddalena and beyond to Corsica, with an ever-present procession of spectacular yachts passing by. This spacious, beautiful holiday home is part of a group of original white-washed villas sitting right on the seafront and it is comfortably furnished in typical Sardinian style.
The property is accessed via granite steps leading down from the private parking area onto the superb terrace. The main entrance takes you into the sitting room that looks out to sea with an abundance of white cushions and sofas. A small but perfectly equipped kitchen hob, oven, fridge-freezer and dishwasher is to the right of the lounge with a door that leads out onto the terrace. Leading from the back of the lounge is a double bedroom with ensuite shower room (please note: there is only a low wall dividing this from the lounge area) and leading from the double bedroom there is a further twin bedroom with its own shower room. A small corridor takes you to the third bedroom with 2 bunk beds and ensuite shower room. The interesting layout of the building is quite unique, and two of the three bedrooms have french windows that lead out to various terraces, so guests may enter and leave the house independently if they so wish.
The real icing-on-the-cake at Casa Rafael are the fantastic terraces. The main terrace runs down the side of the property and in front of the sitting room, and is home to a great sitting area, a covered dining area and a fabulous built-in barbecue eagerly awaiting a regular supply of spare ribs or fresh fish. Another smaller, raised terrace sits right at the front of the house overlooking the beach and the sea and is home to some very comfortable deck-chairs.
This is a super property in a spectacular location. We can only suggest you find out for yourselves.
Please note: Not suitable for any guests with walking disorders due to the number of steps to access the property. Air conditioning is not in the twin bedroom with bunk beds.

Casa Rafael is delightful and in an idyllic location. We enjoyed every minute of our stay and really appreciated the welcome pack on arrival and the friendly and helpful information and prompt replies to queries from Sarah and Luciano. September 2019

The location and the apartment were gorgeous and we had a wonderful holiday. Sarah could not have been more helpful and having her on hand made our holiday even easier and more enjoyable. Her expertise and local knowledge - from restaurants to day trips and her enthusiasm to help, made it feel like we had our own personal concierge. We loved Sardinia and definitely plan to return in the not too distant future. August 2019
