Ciao! Born in Sardinia and raised on a steady diet of pecorino cheese, poems and curiosity, I left my island to study and live on other islands and cities of water - always to come back at some point. Such is the enchantement of this land... worry not, it will put a spell on you too! Villa Calicanto is my family summer house, home to wonderful moments of peace and happiness: it is a place that as family we all cherish in our hearts and which we would like you too to call home. Benvenuti!
Valeria purchased this house in 2011
Why Valeria chose Torre delle Stelle
Villa Calicanto is the first and only ecologically and sustainably built holiday residence rented in Sardinia, which we designed and lived in with so much love and care. As family we shared some of our happiest memories there; with this spirit we open our beautiful home with an eco-conscious heart to like-minded (and like-hearted ;-) ) guests. You will rest in the magical light, calm and comfort of a luxurious house which respects you and the amazing Mediterranean environment around you: the nearby Cannesisa beach with its crystalline, turquoise water, the different greens of the scrub in the coast, the clean breeze coming from southern Sardinia. Our villa, which is one of the four villas located in the residential complex Villa Calicanto, offers all the comforts of home in a intimate, fully furnished accommodation on the coast. Our Villa is perfect for couples, groups of friends and families. We accommodate up to 4 adults (or two adults and two children) but it is possible to accommodate a 5th guest if s/he is a child under the age of 3: for them we have a dedicated baby cot and a high chair. It is also possible to book larger groups in case the other villas in the residence, which we also manage, are available. Villa Calicanto is located in Torre delle Stelle, at about 35 minutes from Cagliari. Being on the coast gives you the possibility to swim, surf, or simply read a book and get Golden-tanned in some of the most beautiful shores in Sardinia (and in the world!) within a 15-30 minute drive; to explore the different facets of the urban life in Cagliari; to hike in the near Settefratelli Reserve; or indulge in the simple luxury of relaxing at home, in a place that nurturs your spirit and your body.
What makes this house unique
At Villa Calicanto we are committed to living in a truly sustainable and beautiful way. Sustainability at Villa Calicanto means a kinder way of life which makes your holiday exceptionally comfortable as well as light on the island that welcomes you, Sardinia. We do our best to continually improve our practices and encourage our guests to do the same. • Regularly recycle garbage and if possible buy goods with minimum and/or recyclable packaging. • Reduce car traffic: enjoy the local coast and its amenities, walk whenever possible (sun and distances permitting!) and drive preferably off peak time. • Stay Local, Eat Local, Buy Local, See Local: explore Southern Sardinia's possibilities - we will be happy to give you advice! • Relax & switch off – enjoy living lightly: turn off any electric units when you are not home; use the advantages of the passive house - for instance, close the curtains to keep the temperature inside, and open them to let the natural warmth and light in; try reducing the use of heating and air conditioning, as the quality of walls and insulation will naturally form an efficient barrier which cools down or warms up all interiors quickly and releases very slowly; turn off some lights and the TV and make yourself cozy with a book - or sit in the balcony or in the veranda, just looking at the stars (from which Torre delle Stelle takes its name!); use the washing machine and the dishwasher when fully loaded, and prefer the ecological settings and programs on both devices; enjoy showers and use fresh water sensibly and responsibly; use appropriately the double flush button; opt for ecological mono-doses of detergents whenever possible.
