Rosetta is one of our favourite and best selling properties, and as soon as you arrive, you’ll understand why! Located in the heart of Porto Rafael with stunning views across the bay to the Archipelago of La Maddalena, it has its own private access down to the idyllic sandy beach just metres away.

The apartment is accessed via the pathway and some steps that run around the edge of the main villa. Once you enter onto the terrace and close the gate behind, you’re in your own private, secluded slice of heaven. The property has been completely refurbished recently and now has a separate small double bedroom, a super shower room, an intimate lounge area with a small kitchenette – gas hob, fridge-freezer – and dining table with the most wonderful views.

Outside is a partially covered private terrace with a table, chairs and deck-chairs. The view is totally unbeatable, the glittering sea and a constant procession of sailing boats and super-yachts providing an enthralling backdrop. The private path with steps leads straight down to the sandy beach with its wooden jetties, a cooling dip in the sea couldn’t be made more convenient.

Rosetta is perfect, we suggest you book early to avoid disappointment.

What our guests say

Margherita, Roma

Small apartment with beautiful views and the path to the beach allowed me to swim every morning as the sun came up. I would like to come back soon. Grazie! July 2021

Claire Hoare, Vinery Hill, Nr Lydney, Glos

Rosetta is tiny but is very comfortable and is a wonderful location. We plan to return! September 2019

Annabel Harribey, Bordeaux, France

The apartment had everything we needed. May I suggest a small bin is needed in the bathroom, otherwise we really could not fault it. Sarah was extremely helpful throughout our stay. Will we be back. YES DEFINITELY!August 2019

John Skeates, Ipswich, Norfolk

Everything went very smoothly. Sarah contacted me as soon as we landed at Olbia and the villa handover was good. The position of Rosetta was excellent. Two very minor items required for villa, namely a cheese grater and a liquid measuring jug. First time that we had been to Sardinia and we very much enjoyed our stay and we will certainly consider using Essential Italy again for future trips - Thank you.

Terry Jones, Corsham

The service we receive from Sarah is always first class, always exceeds anything we have received from any other company. Can have nothing but praise for Essential Italy in their customer care and standards of service.

Karl Arnold, Norwich

Absolutely lovely apartment. Very clean with all the amenities we needed. Location was spot on although we would have liked a terrace with more afternoon/evening sun. Porto Rafael is a lovely place. Very quiet and the beach near the tennis court was fantastic. Francesca and Sarah were fantastic hosts! Can't thank them enough for helping organise the horse riding and boat trip around the islands. They have so much local knowledge and it was great that we could just drop them a text when we needed to. Thank you so much. We had a fantastic holiday in Sardinia and all the information and help we had from everyone we have dealt with at Essential Italy has been invaluable. I would have no hesitation in booking another holiday with Essential Italy and would thoroughly recommend them to anyone looking at a holiday in Italy. Thank you everyone for making this a holiday to remember.

Kevin Southworth, Wimbledon

We love this place - Rosetta is known to our daughter as ‘our beach house’ ( we wish!) The view is genuinely the stuff of dreams and it's no wonder the late Snr Rafael Neville invested so much in the place… we love it… 5 star throughout - don't change a thing… you guys you have 'pitched' your travel business just right for this location and a certain type of holidaymaker.

Prudence Duncan, London

Excellent… all we required, nothing flash but comfortable. The staff in Sardinia were extremely helpful and accommodating… cannot praise them highly enough. Would highly recommend you for your client care alone, many thanks.

Geraldine Mason, Bridge of Allan

An outstanding trip to Rosseta in Porto Rafael in Sardinia. Everything was perfect as was our host Sarah, charming and really helpful. We have been using Essential Italy for 12 years and would be very hard pushed to find a better service provider that consistently delivers high standards of customer service and leaves the customer feeling valued every time.
