Villa Smeralda

Sardinia, Italy
Sleeps 10 / 5 bedrooms/ 5 bathrooms

A splendid property set in typical Sardinian vegetation, with a breathtaking view of the sea which you will definitely fall in love with; this is Villa Smeralda. This recently renovated villa is located in the well-known resort of Porto Rotondo on the Costa Smeralda and one of its strong points is its panoramic position although only 1 km from the centre of Porto Rotondo. The property consists of three buildings, a main house and two annexes, all set in a splendid park of Mediterranean scrubland. The main villa, facing out onto the beautiful covered veranda overlooking the Gulf of Porto Rotondo, takes you directly to the swimming pool in a seemingly natural continuation of the veranda itself. The rooms are characterised by modern design, high quality finishes and large windows that let in lots of natural light as well as showing off the panorama which can be enjoyed mostly from the living room and from the master bedroom, through the French windows. Within the property is also a convenient parking area with a flight of steps leading directly to the villa entrance.

A natural, almost circular cove, in the north-eastern part of Sardinia, was the chosen location for Porto Rotondo, known to the locals as "Poltu Ridundu". A geographical area that lent itself perfectly to become a marina around which to develop a seaside village. It was the Venetian Counts Nicolò and Luigi Donà dalle Rose who, in 1964, undertook to create the marina and the village. Almost everything was built spontaneously, following the inspiration and whim of the moment, with an eye to quality. The idea of the two brothers was that Porto Rotondo should become a ''milieu'' of artists and intellectuals, and the first to respond to the invitation were the sculptors Andrea Cascella and Giancarlo Sangregorio. The first created the rendezvous for holiday-makers, Piazzetta San Marco, while the second created the piazzetta of the fishermen's dock, "Vecchia Darsena". Twenty-eight masons from Gallura worked the granite which Andrea Cascella needed to create the piazza, the steps, the façade of the Church of San Lorenzo, its megalithic cross and altar. The territory is divided into three "punte": Punta Nuraghe, Punta Volpe, Punta Lada which accomodate, half-hidden by the lush Mediterranean vegetation, apartments, residences and prestigious villas of important big-names of culture, fashion, business and politics. The proximity to Olbia, just 15 km away, with its port and international airport has furthered its development. The villa stands almost in the centre of the town with all facilities in the immediate vicinity, including the marina, but in a peaceful and tranquil enclave. At about 400 m there is the free shuttle service that connects this residential area to several beaches.
