Hot Time in Portoscuso

  • 3 of 5

1) The property is not fully air conditioned as advertised. The house is divided into two sections. The front section has two bedrooms, a bathroom and a combination kitchen, dining and sitting area. The small air conditioner in the kitchen was NOT adequate to cool the front bedrooms. We were able to borrow a couple of floor fans to help circulate the cool air and help cool the front bedrooms, which made it fairly pleasant . However, we would have been very dissatisfied without the fans. The back bedroom, without ANY air conditioning at all, was miserable -- even with the use of another fan to keep the air moving. We feel the air conditioning was misrepresented, especially when the owner knew that all bedrooms would be in use. 2) The back bathroom only had hot water one day during our 7-day stay. 3) The trash recycling and collection schedule was very complicated. We did our best, but English instructions should have been provided to make the process seamless. 4) At the time we booked, the bed linens and towels were listed as included amenities. But, a couple of months after booking, the owner sent an email with a bill (136 euros) for use of sheets and towels. The towels were thin and well used -- 56 euros seemed pretty steep for 8 bath towels and 8 hand towels that were threadbare. 5) The small washer was a definite plus. Although, English instructions would have made it much better... rather than the "trial and error method" we had to use! 6) The refrigerator stopped working the 1st day of our stay and leaked all over the kitchen floor. The owners agent was quick to replace it early the following day, He even reloaded our food for us, which kept it from spoiling. 7) The patio area is very nice, but be prepared with insect repellent in the warmer months. 8) The kitchen is small, but it is nicely equipped. However, the kitchen knives need to be sharpened. Despite the problems with the house, we still enjoyed our time in Portoscuso.

Un angolo di Sardegna da visitare assolutamente!

  • 5 of 5

Io e la mia famiglia abbiamo soggiornato per due settimane a Portoscuso, un incantevole paesino di pescatori con porticciolo turistico in provincia di Carbonia-Iglesias. La vacanza è stata assolutamente all'altezza delle aspettative sia per la casa molto confortevole, con ampi spazi interni ed esterni e adatta a famiglie con bambini, sia per il paese che dispone di tutti i servizi necessari (market, farmacie, panifici, ristoranti, bar, edicola). Il mare e la bellissima spiaggia di Porto Paglietto sono a una decina di minuti a piedi dalla casa. Portoscuso è comunque un'ottima base per visitare altre spiagge più a nord ( costa verde) e a sud ( Isola di San Pietro, Sant'Antioco, Porto Pino). Inoltre nelle immediate vicinanze si possono visitare Iglesias e Carbonia e le miniere del Sulcis Iglesiente. Per chi non avesse voglia di usare la macchina anche Portoscuso offre natura, cultura, storia e tradizioni ormai dimenticate che vanno assolutamente riscoperte. Da non perdere la visita all'antica Tonnara di Portoscuso e gli eventi organizzati nella struttura. Un ringraziamento doveroso al sig. Giovanni Uselli e alla sua famiglia per l'accoglienza, la disponibilità e le informazioni che ci hanno dato durante tutto il soggiorno per rendere la nostra vacanza ancora più indimenticabile!

Ausreichend geräumige Wohnung mit Terrasse

  • 4 of 5

Mit Terrasse und angrenzenden Garten, der aber eher weniger für Kleinkinder geeignet ist, da der Eigentümer (schützenswerte) Kakteen, Wein, Olivenbäume und Zitronenbäume hat. Diese sollen erhalten werden und möglichst nicht berührt werden. Sehr schön die ausfahrbare Markise. Optional kann in der Wohnung eine Klimaanlage hinzugeschaltet werden, die gesondert mit 50Cent/kwh abgerechnet werden. Die Wohnung/Haus hat zwei Schlafzimmer mit jeweils einem Doppelbett und einen Einzelbett. Hinzu kommen weitere Schlafzimmer mit Zugang zur Terrasse sowie ein zweites Bad/Dusche.

Die Wohnküche, über die man die Wohnung betritt, hat zwei Kühlschränke, die auf Grund der fehlenden Lüftungsschlitze die darüber liegende Arbeitsplatte warm halten. Unter den drei Gasflammen des Herdes ist ein elektrischer Backofen. Auf Grund der enormen Hitzeentwicklung des Ofens (die Regler schienen keinen Einfluss auf die Temperatur des Ofens zu haben) und der darüber liegenden Gasbrenner sahen wir von der Benutzung des Ofens ab.

Das Geschir ist ein Sammelsurium an verschiedenen Teilen. Bei ausreichend langer Suche findet man eigentlich alles. Sehr gut ist Lage: Sehr ruhig und dennoch zentral. Märkte, Hafen, ... sind fussläufig erreichbar. Zu den Stränden ist es schon ein bisschen weiter - mit Auto aber kein Problem.

Insgesamt eine klare Empfehlung.

Séjour au calme

  • 4 of 5

Maison au calme avec un agréable jardin clos (ce qui est bien pour les enfants), située à quelques minutes à pied du centre ou de la plage. Portoscuso est un joli petit village de pêcheurs encore préservé des touristes.

Conseillé pour des vacances tranquilles en famille.

séjour au calme

  • 4 of 5

Maison au calme bien placée non loin du centre et de la plage. La côte ouest est très jolie et pas trop envahie de touristes . Nous étions là en août 2013. Bel espace extérieur. Il manque un peu d'équipement en cuisine. A 8 un lave vaisselle serait le bienvenu. Nous avons apprécié notre séjour. Le frère du propriétaire est intervenu très rapidement car il y avait des problèmes électriques. Bon accueil malgré notre pauvre italien.
