Overview

Apartment75 Sqmt
Built in traditional Sardinia style, apartment Casa di Volpe is set in a quiet location within pretty gardens on a hill above Pittulongu on the beautiful North East Coast of this beautiful island.The apartment is single storey, with nothing above or below. It sleeps 4, in two double bedrooms, the main bedroom has a double bed, and the second has twin beds. We can provide a cot and high chair at no extra cost, but this must be confirmed at the time of booking. There are two shower rooms. The living area is open plan, with a well stocked kitchen with fridge/freezer and dishwasher, the living area has a large L shaped sofa and coffee table.

Casa di Volpe benefits from a large furnished covered terrace, ideal for relaxing and dining. It has a a dining area with a round dinning table and four chairs, and a lounge area with a sofa, two chairs and a coffee table. Off this is a small private garden, whilst a spiral staircase leads to an upper solarium terrace again furnished with a sofa, two chairs and a table, perfect for enjoying a cooling aperitif and for soaking up the view over the beautiful Golfo di Olbia towards Isola Tavolara.

The apartment offers unlimited free wifi, and optional air conditioning/heating.

This is our apartment which we use whilst holidaying in Sardinia, so is furnished to a high standard, and is professionally maintained by our local English spoken representative. We lock all our personal possessions away in the third bedroom, so there are no locked cupboards or owners belongings in our guests way.

Additionally, the apartment has use of a communal pool with Lifeguard (June to early September) with a sun terrace and views over the Gulf.

There is also a covered private parking space.

We provide a selection of novels to read, children games, a freezer bag for picnics on the beach, a beach umbrella, and buckets and spades for the children. To start you off we provide a welcome pack on arrival. There is a lock box for the keys, which allows you instant access whatever time you arrive.

The apartment is ideal for family holidays or for a couple wanting a quiet romantic break.

Please feel secure that we are not an agency, and that the write up and photos are taken by us and written by us about the property that you would be renting. We have been letting out this apartment since 2009, and have a proven track record of happy holiday makers, many of whom return to us on a regular basis. With my long standing experience all guests receive comprehensive paperwork throughout the booking process, and when you arrive you will find an information folder. Along with a welcome pack of wine, water, milk, tea, coffee and sugar. Additionally, we and our English representative in Sardinia are always available.

Casa di Volpe is situated in Pittulongu, which is perfect all year round, and is an ideal base for guests who want a stunning location, yet be close to good amenities. Pittulongu is known for its 1.5km beach of clean white sand, this is our nearest beach and is just a 10 minute walk away. Locally we have a well-stocked supermarket, a fish and bread shop, as well as some great restaraunts and bar. The nearest restaraunts are situated along the beach, and all offer a good selection of pasta, pizza and fish and views across the bay.

Pittulongu is ideally situated to explore the beautiful coastline, the renowned Costa Smeralda, or Emerald coast, the marinas of Porto Cervo and Porto Rotondo, and the unspoilt and little known interior of the island.

Obia is just a 10 minute drive away, and is a bustling city and port (although more the size of an English town). here you will find all the facilities that you would expect, a good selection of shops, restaraunts, bars, banks, a fantastic archeological museum, Roman remains and a Hospital.

Olbia airport is just 20 minutes drive away, Alghero airport 1.5 hour drive straight across the island, and Cagliari a 4 hour drive down South.

For our booked guests exclusively we have arranged a family friendly yacht charter on a 41ft catamaran, or a motor boat, both with English speaking skippers. Available on request at very good rates from June to September.

Water sports, tuition and hire of paddle boards, windsurfers, dinghies and ribs are available locally.

Sardinia is a paradise for sports enthusiasts with a wide range of sports available locally from cycling to caving, to golf on one of the prettiest golf courses in the world, the renowned Pevero Golf Club.

There is also a water park nearby.

Getting to Sardinia, and Olbia specifically is very easy and quick from the UK, other European cities, and even Russia, North America and Canada.

Even better with three airports on the island, and four major ferry ports, you can choose between flying and catching a ferry.

Sardinia is often called the 'Caribbean of the Mediterranean', but is just a 2.5 hour flight time from most European cities, so unlike the Caribbean there is no long haul flight, and better still no jet lag!! An early morning flight into Olbia will get you to our location before lunch, so by early afternoon you could be swimming in the sea or the pool.

Olbia benefits from both an airport and ferry port so you have the choice of either flying, or driving and arriving by ferry. Flying into Olbia is the best solution, as the airport is only a 20 minute drive, so a nice quick and easy transfer when you arrive. Olbia airport is south of the city, and we are north along the coast.

Easyjet flies into Olbia from London Gatwick, Luton, as well as Bristol and Manchester.
Meridiana flies into Olbia from London Gatwick.
BA flies into Olbia in season from London Heathrow.
In season June to October there are also charter flights from Birmingham and Stanstead.

You could also consider a two location holiday flying into Olbia and spending time with us, and then going onto Corsica, or down south to Cagliari, or onto mainland Italy, all of which are served by Easyjet flights.

Olbia ferry port is even closer, so the other way to get to us is by ferry from mainland Italy, or indeed from France via Porto Torres on the west coast.

We always advise our guests to hire a car, as it seems a shame to come this fantastic island and not be able to explore the beautiful coastline and the unspoilt interior. With this in mind we have an exclusive arrangement with UK based price comparison site www.rhinocar.com. when once your booking is confirmed with us,we will send you a special discount code to get 10% off.

Getting around

We advise all our guests to hire a car, so that they can easily explore the beautiful coastline and unspoilt interior of the island. On booking I can provide guests with a link to a reasonably priced car hire website.

If you do not want to hire a car, taxi's are available at the airport. Public transport is not great, but there is a bus stop at the bottom of the road which has regular buses into Olbia, and a nearby beach.

We are a family of 4, we first visited the island when our children were young, (they are now in their early twenties) and have seen them grow up enjoying the freedom and safety of this beautiful island - there is something for everyone! As with all our guests we work very hard and are restricted to definitive holiday periods, so we try and make everyday count for our guests by sharing the knowledge that we have built up over the last 10 years. We visit Sardinia regularly throughout the year so keep a close eye on the property so it is well maintained. We try and make the whole holiday decision making and booking as easy and painless as possible. So from the moment someone chooses to holiday in our property the fun starts! Check out our accolades - they speak for themselves.

After spending two great holidays on the island we succumbed to 'Sardiniaitis', and had to buy our own property to be able to go and escape as often as possible. We choose this area as we fell in love with the North East coast, but wanted to be close to the airport (only 15 minutes) and to the year round facilities of Olbia. Our village, Pittulongu is in a fantastic area with great beaches and amenities. We know there is nothing worse than staying somewhere and finding cupboards locked or cluttered with the owners belonging. So we lock all our possessions away in the third bedroom, so the apartment is uncluttered. This enables our guests to treat the property as if it is their 'own bolt hole'. The most beautiful time is out of season May/June and September/October.
