I shall seek minimum 3 days' rest between successive bookings. As soon as the feature to enforce the policy automatically will be available I'll set it. Please contact me before booking if you have doubts
Quiet and beautiful home perched on the edge of the sea in a cove with sandy beach. 5 min away from markets, 30 min to Cagliari and 20 min to Villasimius.
Beautiful view and direct access to the sea.
The place is quiet and green. Looking South, the house is very sunny and sheltered from most strong winds. The sea is beautiful and safe for children. The weather is mostly perfect from Spring till October, and the water gets really warm (as a rough guide, the base temperature of the sea is 15°C/59°F, by the end of spring it increases at the very least beyond 20°C/68°F, reaching in excess of 28°C/82°F even offshore during summer and then slowly drops to say 23°C/73°F by the end of November). It's the house where I chose to live since 2010 after spending every summer in the village since I was five years old.
There is a big difference in general atmosphere and surrounding activity between summer and the rest of the year.
During summer, quite a few restaurants and bars are open in the village, and the village is relatively crowded (not as crowded as say Villasimius, e.g. here there is always some free space on the beach).
Spring and autumn are much quieter months and best suited for car equipped guests who like driving short distances around and exploring, or intend to spend their whole time in the location, also cooking for themselves (even though usually a few local restaurants are open).
During winter, the local supermarket opens on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. A winter stay would only be recommended for business travel as an alternative to hotels, but most winters are so mild and dry that not too chilly guests could still enjoy a holiday here.
Walking down the garden one reaches the rocks, where it is easy to
- get into the sea for a swim or to reach the beach (water is quite shallow, most adults have foot beyond the immersed rocks, where the sandy bottom starts)
- walk along a trail of a couple of hundred metres to reach the Cannesisa sandy beach
- walk on the rocks to reach a little-known recessed small pebble beach
The main beach can also be reached through pedestrian passages departing form the road. Abundant free parking is available behind the beach.
The small pebble beach can also be reached in a couple of minutes through a pedestrian passage, avoiding most of the walk on rocks. From there one can walk to another very long sandy beach, Kal'e Moru/Geremeas (3 min. walk, no rocks).
Mistral wind seldom blows. Even then, the garden and the adjacent sea stretch are sheltered. But the Cannesisa beach can become a bit windy and choppy; alternative sheltered beaches would be the pebble beach, Gennemari beach (the second beach in the village, 20 min. walk or 5 min. by car) or any other beach on the East coast starting at Capo Carbonara, Villasimius.

Guests have access to the whole property, that is 1250 sqm garden and house. The access road to the private parking is shared with the neighbours.
Interaction with guests
Usually I stay 500 meters away from the house, so it's quite easy to meet me to ask questions or request assistance.
There are plenty of things to do here, boating, fishing, diving, horse riding, shopping... But most people just end up relaxing and enjoying the sun after a swim.
Bus transportation is available, but it is more practical to have a car. Most of the time my two bikes are available and working.
Other things to note
During Spring house martins raise their child on the living room balcony, totally unimpressed by inhabitants of the house. At the end of the day a bit of cleaning might be required, nothing terrible.
