The house is in a housing development built in a pine forest next to a magnificent beach.
The houses are well spaced out, with large gardens. The neighbours are friendly and stopped to talk to us (in Italian!) when walking past our garden gate.
Our house had a most beautiful garden, with tall hedges all round it for privacy. The grass is kept lush and green by sprinklers hidden in the grass, which operate at night. Don't leave the clothes drying rack on the grass overnight, everything will be soaked by the morning!
Put it on the paved area next to the house. This is a wide terrace in front of the house, which is covered, so can still be used on rainy days. It has a large dining table, with dining chairs all round. There are outdoor lights, and an outdoor shower. Also laid-back seats for lying down and lounging in, while watching the sunset through the pine trees.
More prosaically, at the end of the terrace is a washing machine, a great advantage if you stay for a long time like we did.
Inside is a large living room with a kitchen area. Gas hob (with kettle), microwave and large fridge/freezer. I think there was a large oven, but we didn't use it. No dishwasher.
The shower room is at the side, with shower, washbasin, toilet and bidet. The shower is small, but the shower spray packs a punch, with a strong and constant flow of water.
The two spacious bedrooms are upstairs. One has a large double bed, and a terrace. You can sit up in bed in the morning drinking your tea, and look out at the pine trees in the sunlight, and feel too lazy to get up. The beds are very comfortable.
The other bedroom is less spacious, but has a double bed and an extra single bed.
Access to the upper floor is by a narrow spiral staircase, which may be unsuitable for anyone with mobility problems.
Roberto, our host, was very helpful. As we did not have a car, he collected us from Cagliari, and took us all the way to the house, and even took us back to Cagliari on the day we left.
We used the bus service (Follesa) from Capo Blu. The bus stop is about two or three minutes' walk from the house. The buses always arrived on time and never let us down.
We bought all our food from Cantoniera supermarket, which is a real high quality supermarket - lots of organic food, free range eggs, local cheese, ham and olives, all delicious. We got to know the bus drivers and supermarket staff really well. Cantoniera is ten minutes away by bus.
We also used the bus to get to Pula (from where we walked to Nora) and to the Cala d'Ostia beach and Flumendosa campsite, where we used the pool for 8 euros each per day on days when the sea was rough. The bus journey cost just one euro each, regardless of the distance travelled.
We walked along a coastal path to Chia, with magnificent views over a very blue sea. No bus back, alas, but the service would start in June. We also did several walks along beaches.
