Please feel secure that we are not an agency, the write up and photos are taken and written by us about the property that you would be renting.
Also, this property has been listed on Owners Direct since June 2009, so shows that I have a proven track record of renting this property. With my long standing experience all guests receive comprehensive paperwork throughout the booking process.
Villa Casa di Lucertola is set in a quiet location on a small hill overlooking the stunning Golf di Olbia bay, Isola Tavolara and the beautiful white sandy beaches of Pittulongu, hence the great views.

The villa is very comfortably furnished with everything you would require for a successful family holiday. The kitchen was refurbished last season, and over this winter the shower rooms will also be refurbished. The villa is professionally maintained and we go out to Sardinia on a regular basis so keep the standards up.

The villa is ideal for a family holiday or for a couple wanting a quiet romantic break. We can also cater for groups of friends who may wish to holiday together, but reside separately, as in the same location we also have another three bedroom villa with its own private swimming pool, and a two bedroom apartment with use of the communal pool.
When our children were young we had villa holidays, so we have tried to think about what our guests require in a holiday home. The kitchen is well stocked with utensils, there is a large American style fridge/freezer, we provide a freezer bag and blocks, a beach umbrella, buckets and spades, games and books. There is also a lock box for the keys, which allows you instant access whatever time you arrive.
