Once you've stocked-up your kitchen and fridge, you may find it very hard to leave.
The property is modern but built in the style of a traditional Sardinian farmhouse, in total keeping with its magnificent rural surroundings. The gardens and terraces are beautifully maintained, the mix of indigenous plants and bushes, geraniums, cacti and a wealth of pots full of carefully nurtured blooms. is just perfect. The villa has a lovely shady terrace with a large dining table and chairs looking out towards the sea and including grand vistas stretching from the Tavolara island south of Olbia to the archipelago of La Maddalena on the northern tip of Sardinia.
The main entrance takes you into the light, airy and spacious lounge, beautifully furnished with comfortable sofas, rugs and a host of stunning paintings to study on the walls as both the owners are distinguished artists and their style is impeccable throughout the property. The open-plan kitchen provides a delightful area to try your hand at preparing some fresh, local produce that you can enjoy al fresco on the terrace. There is also a gas barbecue outside, useful should you not be able to tear yourself away from the magnificent panorama whilst cooking.
Leading from the lounge is an open-plan study area and a double bedroom with a small double bed, a separate shower room plus a further double bedroom with ensuite shower room.

The property faces south-east, making sunrise a spectacular moment for early risers, the sun literally rises out of the sea – sunset from the terrace at the back of the villa is another moment not to miss.
