Located in the south of Sardinia, an area still unspoilt by the masses but boasting some of the best beaches on the island.

The first thing you’ll notice as you enter the grounds of Casa Querce is the sheer size of the immaculately kept lawns and gardens.There is a pond surrounded by reeds, flowering shrubs of oleander and shimmering pampas grass. The general atmosphere is overwhelmingly rural despite the lively town of Pula being only a couple of kilometres away.

The gardens also conceal what is probably the property’s jewel: the dazzling pool. Surrounded by sculpted rock gardens and low shrubs, this area gets the sun all day long – though you can seek shade under some nearby holm oak trees and mature lentisco – and it is as inviting and peaceful as you could hope for. At the centre of the grounds stands the ochre coloured house. All on one level it has a cool, alluring interior.

The split-level lounge area is decorated with a number of artefacts collected during the owner’s past travels, and the traditional Sardinian furniture is set off against the white walls. The well equipped and sizeable kitchen opens out onto a large terrace area perfect for soaking up the sun and for extended meal times.

This is one of our most popular villas so early booking is definitely recommended.

About the Local Area

ABOUT AREA

Pula is a bustling agricultural and tourist town set inland from Nora. The long sandy coastline of Santa Margherita and the majestic Sulcis mountain range are just some of the varied landscapes that this charming town has to offer. By night the central square is throbbing with locals and visitors enjoying the warm summer evenings in one of the cafés and restaurants or just browsing the many shops which stay open until very late. Also not to be missed is the Tuesday market, abundant in fabulous fresh fruit, vegetables, fish, clothes, toys and beach equipment.

BEACHES

Nora
Nora beach is a pleasant sandy beach which extends south of the Roman ruins of Nora. A popular destination for the town folk of Pula, it can be crowded during the hottest months.

St Margherita
St Margherita is a long sandy beach with good facilities if you want to hire a speed boat or a sea scooter.

Chia
Chia is a dazzling beach and is perfect for those who love long sandy beaches. This idyllic beach, recently voted the 5th best destination for a beach holiday in Europe, has fine sand and is fringed with sand dunes. There are a growing number of ice-cream booths which have appeared over the years where you are able to buy refreshments. Unfortunately this is a beach to avoid when the mistral wind blows as the sand is swept across the beach at very high speed and can be quite painful! There are facilities here to hire windsurfs and sea kayaks.

Costumes, processions and intense drama are the main ingredients of Sardinia's various festas commemorating Easter.
