Villa le Saline is a beautifully converted Sardinian farmhouse with private pool, breathtaking views and within walking distance of a sandy beach.

Positioned between Palau and Cannigione, just above the small seaside resort of Le Saline, this villa commands magnificent views across the sea and beyond as far as the islands of La Maddalena and the granite hills of the Costa Smeralda.

Villa Le Saline is an alluring Sardinian farmhouse, which has been beautifully converted into comfortable and stylish accommodation, whilst great effort has been made to ensure it keeps its original feel and distinctive character. Wooden beams, quarry tiled floors, large fireplaces and antique furniture all contribute to the homely feel, which is clearly apparent throughout the house. The villa also features extensive lawned gardens, a delightful pergola for al fresco dining and a private pool – the perfect choice for a traditional family holiday in Sardinia.

A short walk downhill will take you to the small beach of Le Saline, one of the area’s best swimming spots and for those who wish to explore the region further afield, there is a wealth of attractions within close proximity including the lively tourist town of Palau, the stunning islands of La Maddalena, the unspoilt Galluran countryside or the glamorous Costa Smeralda.

About the Local Area

ABOUT AREA

On the extreme north eastern tip of the island is Palau. This lively small town and port is primarily a beach resort with its own selection of shops, bars and restaurants. Around 3km to the north of the town lies the Fortezza di Monte Altura, a 19th century bastion on a rocky slope above the town. From Palau you can also take a boat trip out to the nearby Maddalena Islands.

BEACHES

Santa Teresa
Enjoy stunning views of the straits of Bonifacio over the transparent turquoise sea as you head to the dramatic headland of Capo Testa to the west of Santa Teresa. The nearby bay of Santa Reparata has some delightful stretches of beach.

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.

Porto Cervo
An up-market town and 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.
