The property is situated in a quite residential location with plenty of street parking if required. A five minute walk into the village and perhaps 7 minutes back as uphill, but not overly strenuous. Vito and his wife are a charming couple who immediately made us feel at home in their well equipped and cared for property. There are plenty of restaurants to choose from if eating out and supermarkets should you wish to eat in. The local beach is relatively small but we preferred 'Spaggia di Cala Cartoe' beach which has better sand, ideal for children, a mobile refreshment stand and clean toilets. It is approximately an half hour drive North of Cala Gonone along a rather exciting drive over the headland and along the coast.
Amazing Cala Ganone
The apartment is a bit dated but has everything you need. In a good spot - you get a good workout on the way home! Vito met us even though we arrived really late and had left us some local cakes for breakfast. Cala Ganone itself is incredible. Great beaches, caves, trekking and culture and the beautiful clear blue water. We would highly recommend hiring a boat for the day. Hope to be back some day.
Our FIRST VRBO EXPERIENCE!! We hope they are all going to be as good as this one.
Not knowing what to expect, it was better than we had expected. Plenty of room for 3 adults and 2 kids. Very nice accomodation. Well stocked kitchen (utensilwise of course) . Great location - just a short walk from the beach.
And the best part of all, our hosts, Vito and Lina, as well as his daughter Alice, who just happened to be visiting were all so very helpful and caring.
We highly encourage anywone who wants to come to Cala Gonone to stay here!
Abbiamo conosciuto una bella famiglia Americana cordiale, simpatica, curiosa di conoscere e di vedere i vari aspetti delle usanze locali.
Speriamo che il ricordo della nostra terra rimanga a lungo con David e la sua famiglia.

"The appartment was very nice and clean, and very well equipped. It has a central location in a quiet area of Cala Gonone with walking distance to the beach. Lina and Vito were very helpful and friendly. They gave us the best Tiramisu we have ever tasted. We had a very relaxing holliday in Cala Gonone."

The appartment is lovely and cool inside with blinds providing protection from the hot sun. It was really clean when we arrived. It feels very homely with some of the family's belongings (not too many). It is well equipped with everything you would need for a stay. The road is quiet and easy to find when you enter Cala Gonone. It is only minutes from the supermarket, the beach, the bus station and two lovely cafés. You can enjoy a partial view of the mountains from the veranda while having dinner. The owners are very helpful and went out of their way to make us feel at home (we also were treated to a tiramisu!!!), to make sure we knew how all appliances worked and to provide us with information about the area. I would thoroughly recommend staying at the appartment and commend Lina and Vito Spanu as really reliable and helpful hosts. We had a wonderful time!
L'appartement dedans était bien protégé du soleil et il était très propre à notre arrivé. On se sent en domicile là-bas grâce à des jolis meubles de la familie (il n'y en a pas trop), et on dispose de tout dont on aurait besoin. La rue où se situe l'appartement est tranquille et facile à trouver, et pas loin du supermarché, de la plage, de la station d'autobus et deux jolis cafés (cinq minutes au maximum). On peut déjeuner en regardant les montagnes dès le veranda. Les propriétaires nous ont très bien reçus (nous avons mangé un tiramisu fait par Lina!) et ils nous ont fournis de tout les renseignements dont nous avaient besoin. Nous recommandons absolumment l'appartement et les propriétaires (complètement fiables et vraiment sympathiques) à la fois.
El apartamento estaba bien protegido del sol adentro y estaba muy limpio cuando llegamos. Se siente en casa con los muebles y cuadros de la familia (no hay demasiados). Hay todo lo que se necesitariá durante las vacaciones para cocinar, lavar la ropa, dormir, etcetera. El calle donde está situado el apartamento es tranquilo y no es difícil encontrar. Está muy pocos minutos del supermercado, de la playa, de la estación de autobuses, y de 2 cafés bonitos. Se puede cenar mirando a las montañas desde la terraza. Los dueños estuvieron muy acogedores (¡comimos un tiramisu hecho por Lina!) y nos daron todo los consejos que necesitábamos. Recomendamos en absoluto el apartamento y a los dueños (son completament fiables y muy acogedores)."

"The apartment was clean and comfortable and very well equipped. The owner was very welcoming even though we arrived late at night and he gave us more help and assistance than we would have expected. Also the home made tiramisu was delicious. Calagonone itself is a fantastic place for a holiday. The coastal and inland scenery is spectacular and the beaches are beautiful, especially those you have to reach by boat. The resort has plenty of restaurants etc. but it has not been over developed. The appartment is in a quiet part of the resort, but only a short walk from everything including the beach. In summary we had a fantastic holiday and would strongly recommend this appartment."
Cala Gonone stands in the center of the east coast of Sardinia, in the enchanting Golfo di Orosei. It is one of the most characteristic seaside and holiday resort location on our island.
The village is situated on a tourist port, in a gulf which abounds in little beaches and bays, such as Cala Gonone, Osala, Cala Luna, Cala Sisine, Cala Biriola, Cala Mariolu, Cala Goloritzè.
Some of these bays can be reached by car, or otherwise either on foot, by kayak, canoe or more commonly by boat, using an efficient daily ferry service. The ferry to Cala Luna also carries tourists to the famous grotta del Bue Marino ( Cave of the sea ox).
It is highly recommended to visit this wild, unpolluted coastline. Hiring a boat can also offer the freedom of “private” visits to the above mentioned bays and to the coast.
Cala Gonone and its sourraunding area offer yet more diversion: it is a paradise for trekkers and free climbers (the canyon of Gorropu, the Tiscali cavern, the land trail to Cala Luna).
Inland on the outskirts of the village there are also beautiful caves, like the famous one called “Ispinigoli”. At the bottom of this pit various ancient object such as driftpins, earrings and bracelets were found, both of Nuragic and Punic origin.
Cala Gonone is also well known for the Sardinian cuisine, in fact you can find there a lot of restaurants where you can eat tipical Italian and Sardinian dishes.
We hope you will come and see for yourself the dilight we have to offer, not least of which is the hospitality of sardinian people!
