Peaceful, rural place. Lots of room for the family to gather. Pool was enjoyable especially after a day of sightseeing trips to beaches, shopping and restaurants that were all about 25 min away. The owner was friendly and helpful.
Beautiful and peaceful well equipped villa
In quiet rural area about 20 mins drive from San terodoro. Alan the owner was so helpful and nothing too much trouble.
Fantastic villa, highly recommend!
We recently enjoyed a lovely week at the Villa, we were a mixed group of 10 adults and children, ranging from under one to over 70 and the villa provided everything we needed and more, very spacious, very well kept and furnished, including baby high chair and cot. Gorgeous pool with outdoor dining areas, BBQ and fully equipped kitchen. Alan, the host was brilliant, providing us with great local information and recommendations for beaches, restaurants, local wine and vineyards, he was just a text away if we ever needed anything, and would respond or appear within minutes. He showed great concern and kindness when one of our group became unwell and directed us to the medical centre. He even met us at the airport, which was a quick 20 minute drive.
The location of the villa is a little bit out of town so you would definitely need a car, but the quiet location is the perfect getaway. And only a short 10 minute drive in to the town and various beautiful beaches on your doorstep it's not really an issue. we would highly recommend Capo coda cavallo for the breathtaking views and Cala brandinchi beach- absolutely stunning!
We cannot praise the villa or it's owner enough, and we wouldn't hesitate in recommending Smeralda Villa to anyone - We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to return one day!
Thank you so much for your lovely review, it was a pleasure having you here. My job is made so much easier when we have such a nice family as guests
Great Villa, no frills, but everything you need. Short drive to village of Padru for a good supermarket and butchers. Longer drive to San Teodora with large choice of eateries and La Cinta beach. All within easy reach including good choice of beaches along the coast north of San Teodoro. Do try the day trip over to La Maddelena and its satellite islands, breathtaking! Alan the villa owner is literally just a text away, he appears as if by magic, always on hand to help with queries or problems. Thanks Alan, for a great weeks holiday!
Thank you for your review of the villa and surrounding areas. You are quite right the areas around the island do need to be explored, there is so much to see. That's why a car is really essential. Delighted you all enjoyed your stay.
Idyllic Rural Retreat
Alan, the owner of the villa met us at the airport and we followed in our hire car on a 20 minute journey to the villa, calling at a winery en route where we bought some excellent wine at only €2 per litre!!
The villa is very spacious and occupies a site on a hillside overlooking woodland with views of the village of Padru and the mountains beyond. The lounge and kitchen are on the first floor, to taken advantage of the superb views from the balcony, where we enjoyed watching the sun set while having our evening meal.
Alan kindly accompanied us to the nearby town of San Teodoro and gave us the benefit of his local knowledge on cafes, supermarkets and bakeries there. He also took us to the beautiful beach of La Sinta.
The Agritorisimo Casteddu is a 20 minute walk from the villa where we enjoyed an excellent lunch, definitely to be recommended !!
If you are looking for a chilled relaxing week away from it all, but within a short drive from the airport and the beautiful beaches at San Teodoro, this is the place for you.
Thank you for taking the time to review the villa and surrounding areas. I am delighted that you enjoyed your stay so much.
Just returned from a magic week in this spacious, well appointed villa. If you want 'away from it all ' you can have it here and, conversely, if you want a little more going on you can visit San Teodoro or the small town of Padru only 5 minutes away by car.
Alan, the villa owner, could not have been more helpful. He advised us and helped us in many ways but was never intrusive.
We were very comfortable here and the views, oh the views are spectacular especially from the balcony where you can sit and have your meals or just sit after a swim or an outing and enjoy the beauty surrounding you.
Thank you for your review. I am delighted that you enjoyed your stay and found the villa and the surrounding area so charming.
The villa is situated within a "Blue Zone" this is classified where there is a large number of people who live to be over 100 years of age. Of all the blue zones throughout the World Sardinia has the most Centenarians. This is put down to the healthy food and in particular the Cannonau wine that the locals drink. There is a vineyard within a 15 minute drive where this delicious wine can be purchased.
San Teodoro itself is one of the most popular destinations on the Island it has many restaurants, bars and agriturismos. The local beach La Cinta is breathtakingly beautiful with fine white sand and crystal clear blue water. There are over 18 beaches and coves within a 10 to 20 minute drive from the villa.
