About Marina Floris
My name is Marina, I am 54 years old and live in Cagliari, where job at a telecommunications company. My husband's name is Giampaolo, 63 years old, he is a doctor and works at a hospital of Cagliari. It 'specialist in Pneumology. We have two children, Alice, 28, and Mark, 16, both students.
Marina Floris purchased this House in 1994
Why Marina Floris chose Pula
We purchased this property when my first child was still a child, to live with her the wonders available in this oasis of peace. The same opportunities we offer to our second child. Now they are grown and want to holiday in different places. We continue to go to Pula, especially during the weekends but there seems wasted leave it empty for the rest of the year.
What makes this House unique
I really like our little house, for so many reasons. It is in the countryside but a few steps from the town. It is near the sea and, to achieve it, you can decide to take a walk on foot, or by bicycle or, when it's hot, is not prohibitive go to the beach by car: there are many car parks. If you do not feel like going to the beach you may very well decide to rest in the garden. The space is wide and it is invaluable for healthy readings. Even the mountains are very close, just go along the mountain road leading to the golf course Is Molas. In the spring they are rich in water and cyclamens. The architecture of the house is delightful, its renovation was carried out by a dear friend, architect.

Great house, well furnished and lovely location
Marina was very hospitable and the cats are lovely. Great holiday!
A house as delightful as the pictured arbour suggests, secluded, tasteful and everything you need.
Although in the vicinity of busy roads, and (advantageously) only a short walk from Pula town centre, the property, with its adjacent olive grove and surrounded by varied and colourful shrubs and flowers, and with fine mountain views, provides relaxation and seclusion. The interior is embellished with Marina’s rich collection of pottery, copper etc, and is more fully provisioned in the practical sense than one usually finds. I cannot speak too highly of Marina’s generosity and helpfulness; she attended to our every need — before we arrived (eg beach towels), and when necessary during our stay. There are lots of useful booklets, pamphlets and maps with information about the surrounding area — scenic spots, shops, restaurants, beaches. The best beaches in our opinion are about 25 minutes’ drive away in Chia, but Nora is much closer, and that also has a wonderful archeological site. The restaurant we liked most is Zia Leunora in Via Trieste — superb fish dishes. We had only three reservations: there aren’t any obvious pathways for rural walking in the immediate vicinity; the second bedroom has only bunk beds for children, though I found it perfectly usable; and mosquitoes were quite prevalent (probably due mainly to its being a September stay, with a lot of rain at night, more than usual someone told us, and nets are set up on all the beds). None of these factors significantly marred a lovely week’s holiday, and we would certainly return for another one.
Great quiet location, close to Pula centre and easy access from Cagliari. Perfect!
I booked this for a week's holiday in March with my husband and 20 month old daughter. Marina was super helpful with answering questions before we arrived at the property and provided a lovely cot with bedding, highchair and pushchair for the baby. She kindly met me at the bus stop too and showed me around the house. There was plenty of firewood to use in the open fire, which we needed in the evenings as it was cool at this time of year. The air conditioning was also great for warming the bedrooms. The house is in the grounds of her mother's house and is very spacious and well stocked with kitchen utensils and furniture etc. It had a very homely feel. The garden is beautiful too, and the olive grove was full of flowers. My daughter loved the outdoor space and was well occupied with the trees, bird bath and meadow! But it was a bit too cold to take advantage of the patio area for the evenings!
The location was also good, close enough to Pula to walk to the shopping or restaurants. Also easy to find from the main road from Cagliari and the airport. We were able to drive to the beach at Chia in just 15 minutes too.
If we come back to Sardinia we would definitely stay here again.
Clean, quiet, convenient, and comfortable
Located an easy drive just less than 30 Km from the Elmas Airport, and pleasantly situated behind white plastered walls and an electric gate, this charming little house is as just as described. The location is convenient to Cagliari, Pula, Nora, great local beaches, and within an hours drive of Sulcis National Forest, and the enchanting Grotte Is Zuddas.
Marina is a wonderful host who will greet you and help you settle in nicely.
A nicely sized master bedroom, a second bedroom with bunk beds, a kitchen adequate to prepare good meals, and a comfortable living space await. The vine covered pergola and patio with outdoor oven (olive wood provided for fuel) was very pleasant in the evening. Information in the form of pamphlets, maps, and cards from local recommended businesses are available at the house. There is a nice local market in Pula, just down the road.
A lovely quiet rural setting, white washed walls and terracotta tiled roofs, cactus and olive trees, close to everything, and pleasant people. It is my pleasure to unreservedly recommend this "Dream house under the olive trees."
Grazie Marina, lei è un meraviglioso ambasciatore per Sardegna e spero di tornare un giorno con amici e familiari. Ciao!
Grazie Eric. E' stato un piacere ospitarti e percepire il tuo apprezzamento per le cose semplici e vere. Spero tanto davvero di poterti incontrare ancora, magari con tutta la famiglia. Marina
Fabulous little house
We stayed here for 5 nights, a lovely house in tranquil surroundings but only a 15minute walk into town. It was really well equipped and the BBQ was fantastic. Marina was there to greet us on arrival and show us around. Wish we could have stayed longer. Would highly recommend. Oh and thank you for the delicious cakes!!!!
Thank you for your courtesy. I hope I have still my guests. Marina
You wont be disapointed staying here
Fantastic location for Pula and beach. Everything you could need at the property and very helpful and friendly owners,. The two weeks were very relaxing. Would stay again without a thought.
Jonathan e Thelma sono persone deliziose, amanti di Pula e della natura. Sono ospiti assolutamente consigliabili
Pula is a seaside village inhabited by about 6000 people. It 'a very lively, especially in spring and summer, known for the feast of Saint Efisio, which takes place the first days of May, the numerous fairs and festivals, for the ancient ruins of Nora, the beautiful golf Golf Is Molas, on the slopes of the mountains of the place. A few kilometers from the house, along the SS195, you reach some of the most beautiful beaches in Sardinia: S. Margherita, Chia, Malfatano Cape are among the most beautiful places of the south coast. HOW TO REACH THE COTTAGE
From Cagliari, you have to take the SS 195 to Pula. When you arrive at Km 29,700, there is a large roundabout. You have to take the right path called "Strada Vicinale Vecchia Pula for Domus de Maria". The first house that you will find on the left is mine. The electric gate is green and the family name is "Prati-Floris"
