This recently refurbished villa was named one of the ‘50 Best Villas in the Mediterranean’ by The Sunday Times in 2017. 

A stunning five-bedroom property just outside Pula, Villa Virago exudes a unique sense of style, where crisp, white-washed walls meet an eclectic mix of modern and vintage furnishings.

Outside the villa you’ll discover a good size swimming pool surrounded by decking, with plenty of oversized cushions where you can relax and soak up the sunshine. There’s also a four-poster bed, perfect for a little afternoon nap. The garden is home to a fragrant mix of lemon and olive trees, along with a perfectly kept lawn which is home to a pretty, flower-covered al fresco dining area, ideal for leisurely meals.

Back inside, the open-plan living and kitchen area is bright and airy, with plenty of comfortable seating and all the modern facilities you would expect. The master bedroom has French doors opening onto a large balcony, which can also be accessed from a small upstairs living area. Both the twin bedrooms have outside access, one leading to the garden and the other to a private terrace and seating area, surrounded by jasmine and bougainvillea.

Villa Virago is located within a small cul-de-sac in the little coastal resort of Perd’e Sali, and just a short walk will bring guests to the marina, or Porto Columbu Beach, which is a mixture of sand and pebbles. Nora Beach is just 5km away, offering a lovely stretch of soft sand, and we highly recommend a day or evening in Pula, where you’ll discover yet more beaches, and a charming town filled with bustling piazzas, home to a variety of restaurants and shops. There’s also a weekly farmers’ market, held every Tuesday on Via 25 Aprile.

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.

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

Sagra delle Pesche - San Sperate - July
