What We Think
This splendidly elegant hotel is set on the coast just to the south of Villasimius. The architecture is just delightful – Hotel Cala Caterina is built from local stone in a traditional Mediterranean style with frescoed walls and long shady colonnades. Situated on either the ground or first floor, the rooms are all tastefully furnished in elegant pastel shades, with painted wooden furniture, marble topped tables and a terrace or balcony. Each room is subtly different, perhaps with the addition of a piece of antique furniture or a locally made wall hanging, which contributes to the personal feel of the property. The hotel restaurant offers delicious Italian and European cuisine, and the large azure swimming pool area provides ample space for relaxing in the sun or shade. Just a short walk through the lovely gardens, pine trees and palm-fringed lawns, lies the Cala Caterina beach – a small bay edged with smooth granite rocks, crystal clear water and a white sandy beach well equipped with loungers and sun shades. There are plenty of sporting activities available nearby, including water sports and boat trips, tennis, scuba diving and horse-riding.
