Arrival day: Saturday Car hire: Recommended
This charming villa sits in pretty gardens on the hillside at Porto Rafael and even the super photos will not be enough to prepare you for the stupendous views across the sparkling bay to the islands of the stunning Archipelago of La Maddalena.
The villa is accessed from the private parking space by a path through the garden that leads down to a large covered patio complete with a built-in barbeque making it the perfect shady spot to try your hand at some local fish, meat or just seasonal vegetable simply grilled with a sprinkle of olive oil, rosemary and sea salt.
The main door leads into a curved sitting room with sofas on either side of the open fireplace. As you will realise as you stroll around the village, that most of the villas here are rounded to mould into the scenery and that there is some fascinating architecture to be found in Porto Rafael. There is an open-plan dining area by the large glass doors that lead out onto the front terrace and it is from here that we can guarantee you will be mesmerised by the ever-changing scenery on the sea that unfolds in front of Villa Girasole. The fantastic furnished terrace is partly covered so you can lounge and dine in the shade or top up the tan in the glorious sunshine whilst admiring the view by day and the stars by night.
Leading off the dining/sitting area is a reasonable sized kitchen with all the equipment needed for summer living fridge-freezer, oven, hob and dishwasher. The kitchen opens out onto the back terrace where there is a laundry area with washing machine and sink plus the barbecue already mentioned.
The master bedroom leads off the dining area accessed by a door that opens into a small hallway and the double bedroom has French doors that lead out onto the front terrace (with the stunning view!) and a separate shower room. From the other side of the lounge, there are two more bedrooms – both can be made up as doubles or twins and they share a shower room between them. Again the front bedroom has doors that lead out on to the super terrace.
The gardens surround the villa ensuring privacy and just to the side of the back terrace you will find an outside shower enclosed by white curtains making it the preferred location for a refreshing cool-down after some time on one of the beautiful beaches or an early morning splash under the blue sky!
Villa Girasole is a super choice for a relaxing stay in the pretty village of Porto Rafael and welcomes families and friends alike.
