Villa Azzu boasts one of the most stunning positions along the coast and is the perfect property if you are looking for a tranquil spot with a truly fantastic view across the sparkling turquoise sea and the beautiful islands of the Archipelago of La Maddalena. Amazing granite rock formations, sculpted over the centuries by the wind, provide a further backdrop allowing you to be in complete harmony with nature.
The curvy drive up the hill will give you an idea of the spectacular panorama that awaits once you reach the gates to Villa Azzu – 300 metres above the sea! The road turns into a track about half way up adding even more fun to the journey but note shops, restaurants and beaches can be easily reached within 10 to 15 minutes by car.
Once through the gates, the entrance leads to the back of the villa where you can park and immediately enjoy yet another (and different) spectacular sea-view – this one looking across to the impressive island of La Tavolara just beyond the bay of Olbia. The front door is accessed by a covered veranda and opens into the spacious living and dining area. The large sliding glass doors open out to a shady terrace overlooking the sparkling pool and across to the breath-taking and ever-changing sea-view.
Leading off the lounge to the left is a shower room and separate kitchen equipped with electric hob, electric oven, dishwasher and fridge-freezer. More doors lead out to the terrace so the view can be enjoyed from all angles!
On the right of the lounge you will find three bedrooms – two doubles plus a twin that share a shower room.
The inviting pool will undoubtedly be the focal part of your stay with sun beds dotted around the gardens for soaking up some rays or simply lazing on whilst watching the world go by on the sea in front of you. The view at Villa Azzu is a rare treat and once you have the fridge stocked with some local wine and tasty fare you will probably not want to travel too far away from this idyllic spot. We must add that the sky at night is a real treat as the light pollution is minimal – perfect for stargazing in the warm Mediterranean air before falling into bed.
If peace, tranquillity and a super view are top priority, Villa Azzu could well be the perfect property for your stay in Sardinia.
