Another world, your very own
Off a small road in Porto Rafael, there is a gated entrance to another world: one luxurious and immensely beautiful private villa. It is a 1953 built property lovingly maintained by its owner and is not overlooked, so remains utterly private. The measured elegance of the villa’s interior continues outside, on a long and wide terrace with a captivatingly lush shade provided by a wooden pergola. The view from here is impressive and, apart from the rare Mediterranean pine trees, unobstructed and far-reaching views of the Mediterranean Sea. At anytime, day or night, there is a fantastic ‘sense’ of sky and air, sea and tranquillity. The beautifully manicured and mature garden has step paths, shady spots under pine or palm trees and slopes down toward the ‘pièce de résistance’ of this property: a sandy beach, more beautiful than photos capture! Edged by rocks and with generous shelf of white sand sloping gently into the sea, the beach is completely discreet and secluded even from passing boats. This is a unique find and a rare gem, especially as there are very few beaches of this kind anywhere in Italy that is for exclusive use and enjoyment. In the vivid, warm crystalline water there’s also a mooring pier large enough for a yacht (maximum length of 16 metres) or two! The beach is child friendly, but supervision of small children and infants is recommended.
The main house is on one floor and a lower level that is accessible only via the entrance on the lower veranda. There are 5 bedrooms – including a children’s room with a double bed and a pull out bed for an adult – that sleep up to 10. The lower level houses a large guest bedroom en suite. The bedrooms and bathrooms are understated, yet furnished for comfort and designed for capturing gentle sea breeze: high ceilings, white-tile floors and generous French windows, graced by ever-billowing curtains, while the four on the main floor open to the terrace. Elsewhere, white and yellow patterned floor tiling in the living areas adds Sardinian sparkle and numerous large, pristine white-cushioned sofas add élan, antique pieces and more contemporary furnishings add contrast. The entrance hall is charm itself and, with 2 two-seater sofas, provides a cosy nook for reading, doing a crossword puzzle or planning your next island excursion! However, it is likely most time at the villa will be spent outside. There, on the more recently refurbished wood-decked terrace, the very appealing al fresco lounge (with attractive cushioned wicker sofas) and dining area is all the more enjoyable for the view over the enchanting garden to the beach beyond. Of course, the barbecue area is also a must in a villa such as this.
This exceptional luxury villa is most suitable for a family or a group of friends sharing an intent on having a superlative holiday in Sardinia. The delightfully unimpeded views, the space, and above all the private beach and its seclusion and privacy, are truly indulgent. The villa is only 30 minutes’ drive from Porto Cervo, so is an ideal option for anyone seeking a relaxing and totally private holiday combined with a land and sea excursions to discover more of this beautiful Mediterranean island. (Please note, we have one parking space that is covered by a pergola. On the other side of the road is “first come first serve” but not the Villa’s property).
