Villa La Gjanda, located on the side of a tranquil valley is the perfect place to unwind while still offering convenience for exploring the natural beauty of the region, along with its beaches and restaurants. The villa offers all of the convenience of home with the added bonus of a fantastic outdoor space with swimming pool, terrace, and shaded, soft seating areas. Ennio was n enthusiast host whose passion and knowledge of the local area proved invaluable. The only stressful event was having to pack to come home!
We had a fantastic in the house near Monte Moro. It was very quiet and peaceful with just the wild pig snuffling round in the valley. It provided some wonderful autumn sun and we enjoyed the pool and the wonderful views from the balcony. We enjoyed travelling round and soaking up the history as well as going to lots of lovely beaches. In particular we enjoyed the amazing local wines and mirrors and went twice to Ennios recommended restaurant - La Ruota. Ennio was very helpful and gave lots of advice.
We have just returned from a fantastic fortnight in this wonderful villa.
The villa is situated in a very peaceful location on the side of Monte Moro with unspoilt views out across a valley and beyond. There were 3 good sized bedrooms (all with separate A/C units), 2 bathrooms, dining room/lounge and a fully fitted kitchen. There was also a large balcony with barbeque and table and a good sized swimming pool with sun loungers and chairs on the lawn.
You could spend your holiday watching the wildlife from the comfort of the villa. In 2 weeks we saw lizards, tortoises, wildcats, bats, eagles, buzzards, peregrine falcons, dragonflies, butterflies, thousands of insects and a family of wild boar!!
The local town of Abbiadori is around 5 miles away with a good selection of supermarkets, restaurants and a bank. It is then another 3 miles or so in to Porto Cervo and to a selection of amazing beaches. Our favourite was Liscia Ruja but also loved Baia Sardinia and Pevero.
Sa Conca in Abbiadori is a must visit for gelato, pastries and cakes but I have to say that all restaurants we tried were good quality without being overly expensive.
Ennio is the perfect host, never intrusive but always available if you have any problems and very knowledgeable about the local area of which he is obviously very proud. His recommendations of beaches, restaurants and days out were spot on.
All in all a perfect family holiday which we would love to repeat!
