Pick of the Week

A new property set on a hillside between Arzachena and Palau, boasting wonderful views of the sea and the surrounding countryside.

Enjoying a great location in Sardinia’s north east, close to a range of fantastic beaches, the sophistication of the Costa Smeralda and less than an hour north of Olbia’s airport, Villa Asfodeli is a three-bedroom property ideal for families. Set in a gated area alongside two other properties, the villa enjoys a private and serene atmosphere, enhanced by the glorious verdant surroundings.

Guests at this villa will enjoy a spacious and airy interior, with the main living area leading out onto a homely veranda, which not only offers some welcome shade, but is also one of the best vantage points from which to soak up those striking views. There are two comfortable and light double bedrooms, one of which is en-suite, while an extra smaller bedroom is suitable for a younger guest. A well-equipped kitchen is set away from the lounge and dining area, giving guests the chance to create and cook some of their own meals.

One of the focal points of any stay at Villa Asfodeli has to be the large and inviting pool area. Overlooking the surrounding countryside, the large pool and its sunloungers provide the perfect setting for soaking up some sunshine and relaxing, while a small dining area will also allow guests to enjoy an evening drink beside the pool once the temperature has dropped.

About the Local Area

ABOUT AREA

Set inland from the coast, Arzachena is a bustling market town with plenty of shops and services available. At the centre of town lies the Piazza Risorgimeto, a lively square surrounded by restaurants and bars. The area offers several hidden treasures including mysterious nuraghe (stone towers) ruins and giant tombs, arguably the best of their kind in Sardinia as well as some of the most attractive beaches.

BEACHES

Tanca Manna
Tanca Manna sits approximately 250 metres from the road behind a saltwater lake. It has a great stretch of sand and plenty of facilities for families. A kilometre beyond Tanca Manna is Barca Bruciata, a small sandy beach which is quiet with no facilities.

Cala Capra
Cala Capra beach just beyond Golfo delle Saline is a pretty sandy bay tucked beneath the impressive Capo D’Orso headland with its distinctive bear shaped weathered rock.

Capriccioli
The Capriccioli headland has five beautiful small sandy beaches. There are facilities for boat hire and also a bar close to the beach. These beaches, including La Celvia, are amongst the most popular in the area.

Spiaggia del Principe
Rather off the beaten track is the Spiaggia del Principe which cannot be reached by car. The last stretch has to be done on foot takes under 10 minutes and is well worth the effort.
