I bought a place out here - with fantastic sea views, just a few minutes to the beach by foot - many years ago to relax and enjoy nature with the family. Since 2006 I have carefully selected other properties with similar characteristics, most with fantastic sea views and all close to the beach. I work directly with the owners and I know their properties well. In fact, the area, including the land, pine forest and roads behind the gates, is jointly owned by all of us. Sardinia has always discouraged sea front developments and banned it in 2005. Luckily, our community has been here for decades - close to the sea, immersed in nature, in an oasis of calm.

Over the years I've been fortunate to experience waking up to great sea views and going to bed having watched dazzling sunsets from a range of different properties across this area - some properties are a stones throw to the beach where you can hear the sea from your terrace; others, a few minutes walk to the beach, offer panoramic sea views and spectacular sunsets.

The community here is strong - it has to be - because we all jointly own and manage everything behind the gates - roads, pathways, water system, waste treatment plant and all of the things that this community needs to function efficiently. 100 hectares of Rugged and Wild Sardinia with single storey houses/apartments each one facing the sea, carefully tucked into the landscape. Most of the Italian owners have owned their places for decades and their children and grandchildren are now taking over. Others, more recent arrivals, arrived 10 to 15 years ago from places as diverse as France, Ireland, Spain and England. We all have one thing in common - we fell in love with this corner of paradise and are happy to share what we have with other people from around the world who want to discover Sardinia.

We are in a tranquil, oasis of calm, immersed in nature

Relax and enjoy nature in this unspoilt naturally beautiful part of Sardinia - it is an oasis of peace and tranquility, immersed in nature. We are on the coast, about 300m from the beach and the sea views from most properties are truly panoramic. You can walk to our adjacent beach in just a few minutes and nearby, you'll find many more of the most beautiful sandy beaches in Sardinia. The uniquely red colour of the giant rocks that are typical of this area become even more intense at sunset - it creates a magical and truly mesmerising atmosphere.

The sunsets are spectacular - worth having dinner on the terrace, just to watch the sun go down. Those characteristic red rocks, sculpted by the wind, define this area and give it much of its natural beauty. You can hike across mediterranean brush vegetation, savour the sight of these gigantic red rocks and then discover a new hidden cove or sandy beach, every day!. Take a boat ride, go diving, snorkelling, surfing or just pass time sunbathing on the beach. This area is like the Caribbean but only a few hours away from most European cities.


An ideal holiday place to suit every taste
The properties that we offer have been carefully selected to make sure that each one is close to the beach, with a sea view and a large terrace for dining and sunbathing. Some are the ideal romantic getaways. Some are so close to the beach that you can hear the waves splashing and all are typically within a 5 to 10 minute walk of the beach. Some have nice sea views whilst others have spectacular and panoramic sea views. Our properties are suitable for anywhere between 2 and 7 people.


“This is our third year at Calarossa and as usual everything was great... We plan to return again next year :-)”

Everyone deserves time to relax and recharge, at least once a year. We are very close to numerous beautiful sandy and rocky beaches - some of the most beautiful in Sardinia - and amazing natural sights to discover each time you visit. We’ve been coming here for 12 years and we discover new things to do every year. Hire a canoe or kayak or take a boat ride around the tip of the island - discover new private and secluded coves and beaches each time. We're well positioned for day trips and excursions by boat or by road across Sardinia, especially to places like Stintino, La Madallena and Costa Smeralda. Or stay closer to home and see Castelsardo, Valledoria, Badesi, Trinita’ D'agultu and Isola Rossa

There are many ways to experience Sardinia and everyone has different needs. Many people think about Sardinia as being reserved for the jet set - they yatchs, boutique shops and hotels, and private jets. Others think about the interior - loads of sheep and fantastic cheese. Our area is all about the most naturally beautiful beaches, amazing natural landscapes and the most spectacular sea views and dazzling sunsets.

We right down on the coast - private, fairly rural and tranquil - only a short walk to the famous Marinnedda beach area and a short drive to the fishing village and port of Isola Rossa. Also, we are in a very convenient location, being halfway between the historical-archaeological sites of Aggius-Tempio Pausania and many places not to be missed if you holiday in Sardinia: the La Maddalena Archipelago, Costa Smeralda, Santa Teresa Gallura, Castelsardo, Alghero and Stintino.


Experience Sardinia like a local - I’ll even take you to the best restaurants and show you those hidden beaches

Year after year I take a few guests to those special places or send them notes to help them get there. We recently created a Guest App to help more people discover and enjoy the best of this part of Sardinia, like a local. Find the most beautiful beaches, boat rides, restaurants, horse riding, surfing, snorkelling, diving experiences and more. Over the years I’ve developed a rapport with restaurant owners, bar owners and others. That means that my guests always get that personal service when I introduce them. Therefore, we also give guests a WELCOME CARD - it offers them a little extra, sometimes discounts and sometimes gifts - at a variety of shops, bars and restaurants in the surrounding area.
