A lovely villa with a great pool in a wonderful setting. A little gem for a break 'away from it all'.

Villa Claudia is a charming property in a rural setting close to the fabulous beaches of the Costa Smeralda. It offers a quiet hillside retreat, a fantastic pool area and a lovely shaded terrace and barbecue area for those extended meal times.

The expansive pool area is bound to be the main focus of your stay at Villa Claudia and it won’t disappoint. The pool, with its sunloungers and terracotta tiles, is a real sun trap but it’s also surrounded by lush vegetation offering copious amounts of shade should you want it. When you’re tired of the pool, you can retire to an easy chair on the lawn, or to the shaded terrace for a long lunch – taking in the views of the surrounding countryside. The interior of the property is neatly furnished and spacious and has a large living room and dining area, a well-equipped kitchen, two bathrooms and two bedrooms – a double and a twin. The living room features patio doors that allow lovely cool air into the villa, and these open onto the lawn area and appealing views.

The owners and their dog live discretely in the annexe attached to the house and you will see them occasionally maintaining the pool and gardens. Should you want to venture out, you’re never far from the delights of the Costa Smeralda and the lovely Pevero beach is only 5km away. Porto Cervo is also close by, with its range of bars and restaurants.

About the Local Area

ABOUT AREA

Santa Teresina is tucked away between the glorious coastline of the Costa Smeralda and the dramatic country hills of the Gallura, only a few kilometres away from Porto Cervo. Set in the heart of the Costa Smeralda, Porto Cervo is an up-market centre of indulgence. It is located around two yacht harbours on the north side of this dazzling stretch of coastline, and being the main resort of the area and a paradise for the jet-set, it’s definitely worth a visit. Set in the heart of the resort and lined with cafés, bars and restaurants, the "Piazzetta" is the perfect spot to lounge in style - it is the place to see and be seen. An evening stroll along the quay is also a must, with designer boutiques on one side, and luxury yachts lining the marina on the other. The posh boutiques selling fashionable designer goods such as Gucci, Versace, Prada & Hogan continue the trail throughout the pastel coloured maze of grotto-like shopping arcades within the resort. Italian architect Michele Busiri Vici designed this grotto-like creation and has a strong presence within Porto Cervo, having also designed the Stella Maris church. Elevated and situated in a craggy edge of the land, to the west of the centre, the church is something of an art deco landmark that overlooks the comings and goings of the town.

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.

Liscia Ruia
An extensive sweep of white sand set down a long unsurfaced road.

Piccolo Pevero
Piccolo Pevero is a small sandy beach with parasol and boat hire. It also has a restaurant (“Il Pulcino”) and a bar.

Pitrizza
The Pitrizza beach at Liscia di Vacca just north of Porto Cervo is also popular.
