Rental basis: Entire house or apartment
Number of bedrooms: 1; Number of other rooms with beds: 1
Enjoy beautiful sunsets from the large terrace which looks over the stunningly rugged Costa Paradiso coastline. This cottage-apartment is ideal for 2 to 4 guests, with comfortable accommodation and a peaceful rural atmosphere, in a location with a very traditional Sardinian look and feel. The apartment front door leads to a living area and open plan kitchen and then onto a large terrace with a granite table for alfresco dining, with panoramic views over the gardens towards the sea. It is tastefully furnished and finished with paintings specially commissioned to reflect the colours and style of this very natural unspoilt and sensitively landscaped countryside. Free wifi is available near to your apartment.
Everything you need is within a few minutes' drive, including an aqua park for a day of family fun, a variety of beaches, shops and supermarkets, restaurants, monuments, boat excursions, diving schools and a hot spa centre.
Calarossa is known for its crystal clear waters and incredible natural beauty, including sandy beaches, hilly pine forests and unusual red rocks. Your apartment is set in a truly rural location and directly from your own private furnished patio you can enjoy panoramic sea views and stunning sunsets. The beach is accessed via a dedicated footpath starting at the apartment grounds, and sits in isolated bliss between craggy rocks and unspoilt countryside. There is an area of the beach where sun loungers and parasols can be hired for a small fee. There are also tennis courts which can be hired situated by the entrance gate to the properties. Positioned in the north west of Sardinia between Castelsardo and Santa Teresa di Gallura in the Gulf of Asinara, the property is situated in a private coastal retreat covering 100 hectares.
A short drive inland is a naturally hot spring spa and river. Relax in the warm river water or visit the Spa Centre next door, offering treatments such as mud baths, massages and more. Horse riding, diving, surfing, boat excursions, sailing and an aqua park are all activities which can be found in the local area, as well as the best of Sardinian and Italian cuisine.
The closest towns and places of interest include the quaint fishing town of Isola Rossa with its town beach, Trinita D'agultu, La Maddalena Archipelago, Santa Teresa, Castelsardo; a town overlooking the coast built on the side of a steep rock with a castle at the top, Aglientu and Badesi, which has an incredibly long, sandy beach backed by dunes which attract many types of birds.
Monte Pulchiana offers interesting sights such as the largest granite monolith in Sardinia, and there are plenty of charming nuraghe - ancient Sardinian dwellings – to be enjoyed. Be sure to visit Valle della Luna (moon Valley, a natural valley reminiscent of a luna landscape), and coastal bays with large granite rocks sculpted by the mistral winds into some of the most fantastic shapes, including one in the form of an elephant!
Situated in a scenically arresting and remote area, a vehicle is a must! The location is perfect for those who are looking for a taste of wild Sardinia in all its glory, and ideal for exploring on foot or by bike. The landscape is generally hilly with many winding paths through the natural brush and scrubland, looking over the craggy Costa Paradiso coastline with its fantastic beaches and small coves. This 'Costa Rossa' region brings you the best of nature combined with many attractions and amenities available via a short drive by car.
Most airlines offer numerous routes to Sardinia, especially into Olbia and Alghero airports, both of which are within easy reach of our property at approx 85 km away (50 miles). Cagliari Airport is 254 km away (150 miles), should that be more convenient for your point of departure.
We consider a car is essential to access local amenities and fully explore all that this beautiful part of Sardinia has to offer.
I've kept a blog since 2006, with pictures and things that I have done in Sardinia with my family. This includes trips to hidden beaches and interesting places - we like to live like the locals when we're out there. I will gladly share this with you.
