About The Owner

Co-owners family composed by wife Sandra, cousins Aida and Luigi Andreassi

The Owner purchased this villa in 1976

Why The Owner chose Villasimius

uncontaminated and wild area in 70's years, Villasimius is now always among top 5 beaches in Sardinia. The Villa area is inside a Marine Park, the sea is rich of life,

What makes this villa unique

Directly on the cliff facing the sea of cala caterina. See stars or sunset while you dine in the patio, hearing only the song of seawaves.

Guestbook comments from the manager


Location: Stunning location, with fantastic views from the terrace and lounge windows. The beach is very beautiful and good for swimming and snorkelling. We visited some other beaches in the nearby area, which were also nice but not as good for swimming/snorkelling. We liked the beach at the villa the most.

We were able to get the food and supplies we needed in Villasimius without problems but we did not spend much time there. Lovely cake shop.

Villa: The main lounge area with the large windows overlooking the beach was a gorgeous centrepiece. The master bedroom with balcony and ensuite was great - very large and beautiful views from the balcony. We ate most meals on the terrace and had some BBQs, which we really enjoyed. The sunset over the bay was beautiful. We enjoyed the open air shower next to the terrace and used the villa's path down to the sea for early morning swims, which were brilliant.

The kitchen is a long way from the terrace which is a little annoying.

There were a few maintenance issues.

Sea: We all did some snorkelling and saw lots of fish, including cuttlefish. It was lovely being able to swim from the bottom of the villa path. It was also easy to get to the public path to the beach and spend the day at the beach. Water was clear and clean apart from one day when some strong winds brought lots of rubbish into the bay but these things can happen.

Assistance: booking was very good, lots of information.

Overall score:

4/5 because the location was fantastic and overall the villa was very nice.

Overall score: 4/5

Restful location

  • 4 of 5

Great property for a group of 6-8 people.

Positives: great views over the coastline from lots of windows in the property with nice nooks and crannies to sit in, end of road location,easy access to the beach although a little clamber over rocks would mean v young and old would struggle but easier access a short walk away. Some decent restaurants within walking distance. Good place to see the south part of Sardinia

Negatives:decor and equipment a little tired,no air conditioning ( but ceiling fans help), tricky slope to park on and shared with second attached holiday home. Need a car to travel to other beaches.

Stunning location, stunning views, nice villa !

  • 4 of 5

The house is beautifully located, very clean and conveniently furnished. there is a gazebo to sit and dine outside, although it sometimes was a bit windy. The main bed room is very nice, the other bedrooms are smaller but airy enough.

Some steps and stairs, we found it ok even with children, but some parents might be nervous.

You can either go to the sea by a flight of stairs 2 minutes away or by a rocky path just in front of the house which is quite easy to master and fun for kids to climb up and down.

Excellent contact with the owners and the person -Barbara- who took care of the house while we where there.

All in all, we had a smile on our faces the whole week !

Villa in posizione davvero fantastica.

  • 5 of 5

Io e la mia famiglia siamo stati accolti dai proprietari, persone davvero disponibili.

La villa si trova in uno dei posti più belli del sud della sardegna e la sua posizione è davvero fantastica. Abbiamo respirato aria di mare e la tranquillità del posto ci ha permesso di fare una vacanza favolosa, fuori da ogni confusione della vita di tutti i giorni.

Vista straordinaria, casa curata e arredata in modo semplice e funzionale. Dalla villa è possibile raggiungere, mediante scale condominiali, la spiaggia della cala, spiaggia molto tranquilla quasi 'privata'. I nostri figli andavano da soli in spiaggia e noi genitori potevamo guardarli dal portico..cosa estremamente utile e comoda perchè non era necessario prendere la macchina. Il mare è ricco di pesci essendo area marina protetta. Ci ritorneremo di sicuro anche il prossimo anno!

Villa in bad Condition not worth the Price

  • 2 of 5

The location of the house is beautiful, but the condition of the house was really bad. The cleaning was not well done, lot of infrastructure was not working properly. Windows were dirty. It really was not worth the price we payed for it.

Not again!!

Owner's Response: We are surprised by this review. We have very happy guests which come back every year, with no complaints. Guests receive a orientation tour in the villa at the beginning of their stay. We offer an on-site help , before , during stay and after departure, with mail and mobile phone on-call availability. The guest of this review did not complained anything to us, during his period. No specification on what was not working (infrastructire?) in the villa has been made in this their review. About the cleaning: we have an external service doing the same scheduled cleaning before and after the guest staying, since three years. However We will check with them to improve their effort in doing an always better job. The only thing we agree with this review is that the panoramic windows on the seaside, due to the sea and saline exposition, are very hard to clean from salt and they are not perfectly transparent, but this is part of the beautiness of the villa's position, directly faced to sea. If guests would have noticed their problems during their stay we could have intervened to fix. About the Price : is far low respect to the nearby similar villas, although no other villas have the same location and exposition, and Guests received also a discount on the standard fee. We consider this Villa a familiar and informal escape from confusion and stress in a splendid panoramic place on the sea, not to be mistaken for an hotel or a residence. Although the cleaning condition perception can be really different among different guests , We are really sorry that the guest didn't feel good with cleaning and pricing.

Ottima vacanza

  • 5 of 5

Ho trascorso a Villasimius una settimana con la mia famiglia e alcuni amici. Abbiamo soggiornato in questa stupenda casa situata a pochi metri dal mare. incredibile posizione e vista. E' possibile ogni giorno respirare aria di mare e ascoltare il fruscio delle onde. La cala è davvero tranquilla, la spiaggia accogliente. Consiglio di fare snorkeling perchè, essendo un'area protetta, il fondale è ricco di pesci. Ottima accoglienza e pulizia, arredamento semplice e completo.Ritornerò anche il prossimo anno!

Independent astonishing panorama architectural Villa at Villasimius, Capo Carbonara, directly on the beautiful Cala Caterina gulf and beach (with private access), inside the Marine Park of Capo Carbonara, with plenty of sea life in a crystalline and transparent sea. One of the top 15 sea in the world to swim before die as from Marine turistic seaport at 1 km. golf resort, sailing, trekking, horse equitation nearby 1-2 km. Town at 3 km.

Golf: Golf Club Tanka Village - par 70, 5418 m length on 40 hectares.

Tanka Golf Club Tanka Golf Club, a course of rare beauty designed by Luigi Rota Caremoli, one of the most famous Italian designers, is contained in a natural setting, where the smell of salty air mingles with the scents of Mediterranean scrub that grows .

The course awarded in 2007 by magazine “ The World of Golf” as best new golf course in Italy, unfolds on a surface of 40 acres overlooking the Marine Protected Area of Capo Carbonara.

The par 70 and the 5418 meters length must not mislead players, imagining it as simple course, to face with superficiality, indeed, technique, precision and concentration are the three musts needed to play the course with the right spirit. Players can practice in a 12 covered plus 15 uncovered stations driving range and a beautiful putting green, both have an outdoor lighting system, allowing players to challenge each other also at night.
