Situated on the summit of a promontory which forms part of Porto Rafael, a small piece of paradise and an exclusive resort, Luna faces the splendid sea of Sardinia dominating it from a distance.
The property is immersed in greenery, interrupted by rocks of granite in extravagant forms reminiscent of the moon (Luna signifies moon) The sea is visible from many parts of the villa and particularly enchanting is the glimpse offered from the area of the garden used the least, the area used to access the villa.
Surrounded by one hectare of land, the villa offers the possibility to enjoy large external spaces of terraced areas, including... the patio connected to an external kitchen. Luna is equipped with a pleasant living room, and large picture windows that illuminate the interior and create a continuation to the exterior.
Three of the five bedrooms have French windows leading to the garden. One of the bedrooms is only accessible from the exterior and is situated next to the swimming pool. The swimming pool is positioned in front of the house, just 3 meters away.
On the ground floor is a small entrance area leading to a very large living room divided into TV area, and sitting area with fireplace. There is a single bedroom for a nanny and 1 shower room. All the rooms on the ground floor, except the nanny’s bedroom and shower, have wooden floors.
Note: The driveway towards the villa is steep.

Designed in the early 1960’s by a Spanish nobleman, the Count Rafael Neville from which it takes its name, Porto Raphael rises at 45 km from the airport of Olbia, facing the Archipelago Della Maddalena.
A small district set in between the rocks, there are no hotels or large complexes in Porto Raphael, but exclusively private villas and houses immersed in 150 hectares of Mediterranean vegetation, camouflaged between the rocks.
A “location”, Porto Rafael is discreet but not isolated. Peace is guaranteed, relaxing in front of the sea sitting at a coffee bar in one of the two small squares of Porto Rafael.
The first square, with a tobacconist, a small supermarket stocked with local delicacies, a shop selling books and Italian and foreign newspapers is the first stop for a mid morning coffee. The second small square on the sea front is only open to pedestrians, with lots of open air bars for snacks and aperitifs, and in the evening the possibility to stay and listen to music; various exclusive boutiques and two prestigious jewelers. For lovers of good food there are three restaurants.
For sport lovers, a tennis and yachting club with diving centre and sailing centre. Security, with a doctor on call and permanent private security guards is guaranteed by the efficient consortium, which also organizes an interesting calendar of social and cultural events in the town squares. The geographical position of Porto Rafael allows access by a short trip, also possible by simple dinghy, to all the islands of the Archipelago Della Maddalena, a strictly protected marine park.
Corsica and its islands are just a few miles away and can also be reached by car and ferry departing from Palau and S. Teresa di Gallura. The ‘Costa Smeralda’ with its famous Pevero Golf Club, Porto Cervo and Porto Rotondo are just 25 minutes by car from Porto Rafael.
The archaeological sites and areas of natural interest are close by. The nearby town of Palau is a lively place with shops, restaurants and a colorful weekly market.
Additional amenities include: alfresco dining.Read more

Luna was everything described and more. Pictures do not do justice to the views. Brought my elderly parents who would have been just as happy parked there all day. Rooms are wonderfully appointed. Outdoor living space is beyond words. Accomodations are top notch with only one hiccup, the driveway! Very steep and narrow. Both groups scraped the side of their car. Gate is a pain getting in and out and should be left open during stay. Housekeeper seemed very nervous about security. Foliage was peaking and glorious. Kitchen was Devine for cooking and entertaining. A true paradise! Palau is a charming town close by full of outstanding dining options. For your end to improve, You need a more descriptive operative of things to do, where to shop, maps of community and the local towns with a bit of detail. Also listings of grocery stores and hours open, where beach is located, and even a map to the house! - Amy K., Maryland, USA
