Live like a true Sardinian in this stunning countryside location. Casa Vaddi Mala is situated in secluded tranquility with the coast just 2 kilometres away. The coastline is truly spectacular, guests staying here can choose to visit a different beach every day – knowing that their little slice of paradise is awaiting them on their return.
The house is actually a new-build – Tonino, the owner – will tell you that he hand-cut the 1200 pieces of local granite personally in order to make the walls authentic and in keeping with the traditional Sardinian houses found in this area of Sardinia, known as Gallura.
Spacious, walled grounds surround the property and the house sits on two levels the upper floor known as Vaddi Mala. Steps lead up to a terrace and great stone barbecue under the shady trees the perfect place for a grigliata of local meat or freshly caught fish. The front door leads into the house from this terrace but most guests will use the magnificent covered terrace at the front of the property with views stretching across the countryside green in the spring and autumn and sun-bleached during the height of the summer.
Inside there is a large and comfortable lounge with sofas and armchairs place around a wood-burning stove and satellite TV. The style is homely and comfortable with lots of local wood and bare beams (Tonino is a very accomplished wood-worker) the floor is covered in beautiful tiles and there are many pretty details making you feel very much at home. A large dining table sits in front of the big glass doors but we are sure, weather permitting, that guests will dine on the fabulous terrace at all times during their stay. Leading off the dining area is a great country kitchen with everything needed for the preparation of some tasty meals 5 ring hob, oven, microwave, dishwasher and big fridge-freezer.
The 3 bedrooms are reached from the back of the lounge the master bedroom has a big ensuite shower room and then there is a further double and a twin bedroom that shares a shower room. A small laundry room houses the washing machine along with some handy storage space. Please note that all the rooms are air-conditioned and there is excellent WiFi throughout Casa Vaddi Mala.
The super gardens that surround Casa Vaddi Mala allow children to run freely without any concerns, and adults can wander down to view Tonino’s allotment and discuss his tomatoes, peppers, courgettes and much more. It’s most likely that you’ll dine regularly on some of his fresh produce, and if you’re lucky, you may get to taste some of his wine!
With the shimmering sea just a 2.2-kilometre drive from the property, along with some easily reached, spectacular sandy beaches dotted along the nearby coastline, Casa Vaddi Mala is a truly great choice for a very happy stay on this super island. We consider it to be excellent value for money.
Please note: The apartment under the house is sometimes used by Tonino, he is in no way invasive and apart from the odd ‘Buon Giorno’ you’ll not know he’s there unless you see him tending to his allotment. He is, however, always ready to help should you need advice or should something require his attention in the property.
