Very poor equipped villa, great view.
The villa is very poor equipped and certainly not a romantic place to stay. Anyway the view is stunning and the pool is very nice.
There is a lack of usual household. A lot of things are not functioning well. There is no regular WIFI.
Price/quality is not in balance. The villa is far to expensive.
We are sorry to receive such a low score for Villa Roberta, which in our opinion surely does not deserve it.
We responded to the guests’ enquiries within 24h. We provided extra bed linen and towels, a Nespresso coffee machine and some other small things such as extra mugs, a shower mat etc. The house offers all comfort and nothing important is missing so that it is possible to enjoy the holidays with plenty of autonomy and peacefulness. In their review the guests said there were lot of things not functioning well but actually it was just the dishwasher handle which was broken and, even that, was fixed straight away.
It is true that in our property, which is situated in the countryside, there is not broadband but anyway we provide the guest with a web pocket router which allows to use the internet, obviously it does not allow to watch HD movies and download large amounts of data.
In our opinion whether the place is romantic or not is very personal, after all, also the guests say that the view was great.
We always look forward to greeting our guest with open arms.
Stunning views - attentive hosts
We were looking for somewhere which would be easy for us to stay with our 7 month old baby and Villa Roberta was perfect - we had a very relaxing week.
Due to problems with our hire car we arrived 2 hours later than planned, but Antonio and Leny kindly waited for us in Tergu and were very accommodating despite the late hour (10pm). They also responded very quickly when we had queries about the gas and wifi the next day - both minor issues were resolved within an hour. We had asked in advance for a cot and high chair, both were ready and waiting when we arrived.
The villa was clean and the pool was in very good condition - a man came to clean the latter every day which was helpful. It has a couple of random decorative touches (including a fish tank!), but everything we needed was there, easy to use and worked (the air conditioning and wifi in particular were both very good).
The view is as beautiful as shown in the photos, pretty much as good as you can hope for from a villa like this. The outside seating was nice and comfy which allowed us to enjoy the view all day and evening. It was very quiet, partly as the other villas were empty, but also because it is situated away from the nearest main road.
Although Tergu is closest we used Lu Bagnu as our local town, it's just under a 10 minute drive door to door. It's not a pretty town but it has a couple of nice restaurants, small supermarkets and access to a small section of beach. Castelsardo is nicer but another 5-10 minutes drive (depending on how far up the hill you want to park).
There were a lot of ants around outside the property (never inside), but that's the trade off for being in such a rural location. They didn't bother our baby at all which was all we cared about.
We very rarely stay in the same place twice, so the best compliment I can pay Villa Roberta is that we would seriously consider booking again. As earlier reviews said though, it would actually be quite nice if this remained our little secret!
But we want it to remain our secret!!!
Villa Roberta is one of three villas that the owner, an inspired local developer called Michele Posadinu, constructed on a hilltop overlooking Castelsardo and Lu Bagnu, in northern Sardinia.
This little group was named "Villagio Bellavista" for obvious reasons. Roberta is a well-equipped and well-maintained two-bedroom villa enjoying a direct view over its own kidney-shaped 15m pool, the shared tennis court and then the 12th century Castelsardo on the sea 5km away. The drive from sea to villa is about 7 minutes unless you think you're Ayrton Senna.
For the last few years, Villa Roberta has been used as a reception for the other two villas in the little village. This explains the lack of historical reviews which we found a little odd before coming here.
We flew into Olbia, collected a hire car and drove to the sea-side town of Lu Bagnu, 2km west of Castelsardo, where we met Michele outside the recently re-named Hotel Mintz. The drive is quickest via Sassari, with a good highway running straight across the north of the island. The drive took probably 2 hours plus time to get some provisions. The airport at Alghero is close to Sassari but we found the best flights were to Olbia with easyJet.
The reason Michele meets you in town is because the last 2km of the journey is along a steep private road off the highway to Tergu and, frankly, you'd never find it unless you were shown it. We were also a bit perplexed at why google's satellite images of this part of Sardinia are so old that they don't show the villas. You can triangulate where Roberts is, roughly, from the photos, but you do need to be shown how to get here and in the end this just adds to making the place feel secret and even more special.
Michele is very concerned with making sure you have everything you need, and he is on hand in Lu Bagnu to resolve any issues immediately. We found the place spotlessly clean, and his extra touches like local cheeses help you melt into the Sardinian scene.
The villa is just how it appears on the website and the views are just breathtaking. Up here you feel very privileged to have the space and the quiet, and the lack of biting insects, just a short drive from the beach.
This villa is a gem. It's not on the Costa Smeralda, and it's not on the sea, but it has it's own lovely pool plus there's the tennis, and all the space and light and air, overlooking the coast and (as we saw today) a view all the way to Corsica. This is a special place.
una Vacanza da non dimenticare
Incastonata nello strepitoso paesaggio dei monti sardi, immersa nel verde, a contatto con la natura incontaminata, questa villa è stata la meta ideale per una vacanza da sogno, capace di conciliare un massimo relax ad un pazzo divertimento. La villa stile costa smeralda è dotata di una favolosa piscina, ideale anche per chi ha bambini. Per chi ama attività fisica c'è un campo da tennis da paura.
La sera, ci dilettavamo a scoprire le vie bellissime della vicina Castelsardo, Lu Bagnu e i paesini limitrofi.
Il custode sempre attento e disponibile a tutte le nostre esigenze, ci ha fatto, degustare i prodotti tipici locali, una vera delizia............Provare per credere!!!!!
Wonderful view, great pool, quiet, relaxing place
Everything was amazing. Michele, the owner, is extremely helpful and nice. The place is on top of an hill with a wonderful view of the valley and the sea. The houses are nice, never hot (high ceilings) and clean. Being on a hill, it makes a lot of difference in terms of temperature. We never had to turn on the A/C. Basically there is not much humidity or sea haze, and in the evening the breeze cools down the afternoon heat. Another plus is that on the hills there are no mosquitos!
The place is perfect for relaxing but also quite good as a base to visit northern Sardinia. A lot of beaches are just 10-15 minutes away, the all area is generally less developed and more authentic (and less expensive) than many other places in northern sardinia. Nearby beaches are never crowded, parking is not an issue and traffic is non-existent, at least in July. In any case, places like Stintino, Alghero or Santa Teresa are about 1 hour away.
We did often eat in the house (or by the pool) since having the dishwasher was a plus, but also enjoyed some restaurants. Quality of food is generally very good and not too expensive. Head to Castelsardo for fish, or stay inland for typical porceddu and other Sardinian delicacies. If you really need some serious shopping Sassari is just 30 minutes away. If you like cheese ask Michele for aged pecorino (best I could find in Sardinia). We will definitively go back for another week when we visit Sardinia again.
Stunning views over Lu Bagnu and Castelsardo. Location is isolated hence great if you are looking for restful holiday. There is always the pool & tennis court if you feel energetic.The Villa was as described, basic, but comfortable with everything we needed. The caretaker was friendly, most helpful and sorted our minor problems, though his english was limited. (His french was better)
Apart from the beach, small supermarkets and a couple of Pizzarias LuBagnu did not have much to offer. Castelsardo on the other hand has a maze of narrow streets filled with shops, bars and restaurants around the castle and is only 15 minutes drive away.
We enjoyed touring the area,looking for remote beaches, trying the local restaurants and just chilling by the pool. Not recommended if you are looking for exciting night life or lots of activities.
The Villa is located in the countryside of Tergu only a few minutes away from Castelsardo and Lu Bagnu, where you can find all the services, such as shops, supermarkets, restaurants, discotheques, pubs and so on, and some sandy beaches!
