A modern 5 bedroom, 4 bathroom villa, (sleeps 12) with pool and beautiful views.
We bought this amazing plot of land complete with olive trees in 2006. Six years on we have completed our villa, we are delighted to welcome you to our home on this beautiful island of Sardinia. We hope you have a wonderful holiday, full of happy memories, as we have.
Alex purchased this Villa in 2006
What makes this Villa unique
Breakfasting on the verandah is always a pleasure with its beautiful views across the valley. Relax and enjoy the natural surroundings of the Mediterranean macchia, protected by the Forestale. Spot birds of prey on the ridge behind the villa and listen for the wild boar rustling in the undergrowth in the evenings. Enjoy a glass of Vermentino as you watch the sun go down and grill some local fish fresh from the boat on the BBQ. Alternatively, head into Alghero for anything from a family pizza to the local specialities or treat yourself to a Michelin star quality dining experience. Or just have a stroll along the old city walls whilst enjoying a delicious Italian ice cream.

A super large villa made for special family get togethers with extended family .
Convenient location close to Alghero airport, the charming centro storico, supermarkets and numerous beaches- if you manage to drag yourself away from the fabulous pool that is!
Modern, well equipped, very spacious house with a delightful pool that is easily big enough for a family of twelve. Easy and short car journey to Alghero for supermarket etc. We ‘ate in’ most of the time. The only negative was that we had to get rid of any rubbish we created ourselves, which meant carting rubbish bags to a recycling centre,but that appeared to be the way in Sardinia.
Spacious and comfy with excellent location
Perfect villa for extended family get together or two families holidaying together. This was our second stay and did not disappoint. Liz gave us a warm welcome helping us with a very late arrival (1.30am!) due to delays. It was very hot but the airconditioning worked so well we only needed it to top up occasionally as the house is so spacious with a magnificent wrap around terrace that we could always find a cool or quiet spot. Easy to get around with supermarkets within less than 5 minutes drive. Restaurants as good as remembered. Peak season so beaches were crowded so get there early! We could still park in Alghero tho. Pool remains the star - excellent size and magnificent views and plenty of sunbathing space. Villa is very well equipped with everything that one would need. Lots of things to do and see. Would thoroughly recommend.
Airy villa with a great view
Villa Calvia is a spacious, well designed home with an equally fantastically well equipped kitchen and superb dining areas.
The Villa however is very hard to locate if arrival is after dark and Liz’s partner ended up driving to the end of the drive to meet us on full beam (to be fair - this often happens when we first try to locate our Italian holiday villas - but especially so after dark)
The villa has far reaching views and the surrounding countryside is gorgeous - just lovely. The beaches nearby are super, with crystal clear waters. The restaurants in Alghero are wonderful and the locals are warm and welcoming. ( Liz, when realising we would be late to arrive very kindly offered to buy in some provisions on our behalf - which was great)
The wildlife is wonderful, with eagles nesting just above the villa.
The only downside to our week’s stay was that we were unable to use the pool for most of the week, after finding a dead rat in the pool on two consecutive days, which was a shame as the pool is a fabulous size.
I am s glad you enjoyed the rural outlook of the villa and its natural surroundings. I am also so sorry you had to find a rat in the pool, I trust this was quickly cleaned up by the pool service and our managers. Unfortunately this can happen in the countryside, its jus a shame it spoilt a part of your holiday
Our little bit of paradise!
This is our 6th visit to this gorgeous home. On arrival we were met with really warm welcome from the housekeeper. The house as always is spotlessly clean. It is extremely spacious with a large downstairs sitting area leading off to the bedrooms and bathrooms, continue up the large winding staircase to the upstairs with a large lounge with comfortable sitting area. Outside there is a gorgeous wraparound terrace with ample outside seating. Then a few steps up to the most beautiful pool area with sun loungers and umbrellas. The pool is secured by a gate at the bottom of the steps beside the house which is a great safety feature for wee ones. A large house which easily accomodates 15-16 people. Beautiful bathrooms with plenty of showering facilities and toilets. Most of the sleeping accommodation is downstairs but on first level has a large double bedroom with convient bathroom beside it. A car is a must for visiting Alghero and it's beautiful beaches and this house is a short distance from the centre of Alghero where you will find an abundance if fabulous restaurants. Located about a kilometre away is a fantastic bakery and a really well stocked supermarket with plenty of fresh produce and an excellent fish and meat counter just crying out to be barbequed on the house's amazing barbeque! Relax with a glass of local rose as you wait for the charcoal to be ready! Highly recommend visiting the local vineyards and farms that offer fantastic produce. Don't miss visiting the caves, a great day trip you can either drive to it but we got a boat cruise to the attraction. We have also hired a boat on a couple of occasions which is a great way of exploring the island if you have a sailor in your family! This house and island is a firm family favourite and we love returning here each year.
Lovely clean villa. Pool fantastic. Warm welcome given by Liz.
Villa Monte Calvia is situated in a beautiful valley, just 5km from Alghero town centre and 15 minutes from the airport. The area,rich in Mediterranean macchia, including wild oak and olive trees, is protected by the Italian Forestale. It is an area which is rich in wildlife and offers beautiful views of the surrounding countryside, with a number of excellent beaches within easy striking distance. This part of Sardinia is renowned for its archaeology with Iron Age nuraghi, churches, castles and Phoenician towers, all of which are possible to visit.
Sardinia, and this particular area, offers a variety of activities.
Alghero is rich in history having been occupied by the Spanish and the town still retains its Catalan influence which is reflected in the architecture and food. Enjoy a stroll through the cobbled streets or along the original city walls. The town has an open air theatre and several art galleries. It also has the highest concentration of restaurants in Sardinia, ranging from family pizzerias to rustic trattorias to fine dining experiences. After dinner, why not enjoy a gelato as you soak up the ambience in the narrow alleyways, exploring the little shops selling local crafts and specialities such as a liqueur made from myrtle and the famous almond nougat.
Every Wednesday morning, the local market attracts hundreds of people, locals and tourists alike, offering everything from locally produced cheeses, including the famous pecorino, olives and an abundance of wonderfully fresh fruit and vegetables. It is also here that you will find souvenirs to take home- anything from items made from olive wood to traditionally designed table cloths and bedspreads.
Many wonderful beaches are found in this area, from the local lido beach within walking distance of the town centre, to Porte Conte with its calm waters, beach BBQ and pine trees providing natural shade form the summer sun. Catch the surf at Porto Ferro (kite surfing is also popular here) and if snorkelling seems too tame, then sign up for a diving adventure with one of the local dive schools. Some of the cleanest water in the Mediterranean is found in these bays affording excellent fishing opportunities and protected marine reserves ensure that it is often possible to spot dolphins.
Why not hire a rib for the day? It is possible from the harbour. What could be better than setting out early in the morning to explore tiny coves in your own boat, enjoy a pic nic lunch on board and then spend the afternoon swimming and snorkelling.
It is popular to take a boat trip from Alghero harbour to the sea level cave complex under Cappo Caccia. Here you will experience an astonishing collection of caves enhanced by hundreds of large stalactites and stalagmites. Boats leave regularly. It is also possible to drive to the headland at Cappo Caccia and descend the 656 steps to the caves entrance-just remember to buy your ticket at the top first!
There is a Go karting track near the airport. Horse riding, walking and hiking are also popular in the National Park of Cappo Caccia. For those wanting to relax and be pampered, many of the local hotels offer a variety of spa treatments.
Sassari, Sardinia's second most populous city, is just a 30 minute drive from Alghero offering excellent shopping, museums and archaeological sites.
