Testimonials

It is great when we hear back from guests and know we have achieved what we set out to do. We pride ourselves in our honesty, our properties are really as you see in the photos and read about in the descriptions. We spent two holidays in villas in Sardinia before we bought ours, so we had time to think through carefully what we as a family would want when we go on holiday. We are passionate about our area, and want everyone to fall in love with the island, With this in mind we like to make the whole process as friendly and easy as we can so that our guests can enjoy the planning, the run up and their stay, and most importantly leave wanting to return. With this in mind, here are a few comments from recent guests:

Having viewed literally hundreds of villas in an attempt to find one that met our exacting criteria (private pool, sea views, close to beach, local bars/restaurants), we had almost given up but then came across Ann Marie’s website and in particular her villa, Bellavista. We booked it based on the fact that it seemed to meet our requirements and were not disappointed. The villa which was very well equipped and immaculately clean, had a homely, comfortable feel to it. The terrace, which was perfect for relaxing on at any time of the day, had stunning views of the seas and surrounding countryside. The local beaches were within walking distance but a hire car made these and the many other beautiful beaches easily accessible. Anne Marie was very helpful before and after arrival, providing information and good advice on many aspects of the villa, local area and Sardinia in general. We hope to return one day in the not too distant future. MP (English) 2017

We had a wonderful second holiday in your apartment, and like last year we fell in love with Sardinia. We were amazed that when we resisted some of the local restaraunts that they remembered us, and were especially helpful and attentive. We explored the island further this time, and took a day trip on the catamaran, which was a highlight. Your representative remembered us too, and was very friendly and helpful, it was a comfort to know if we needed her that she spoke English.  Thank you again for all the helpful updates before we came away, again you made the planning and booking so easy. We will be back, and hope to bring some friends with us next time. JB (English) 2017

We had a wonderful stay at Villa Bellevista. We are a family of four with two daughters aged 19 and 21. The villa is in a great location for discovering the North East coast and all the many beaches and towns. Ann Marie was amazingly helpful from start to finish. The information package at the house was extremely useful and we visited all their favourite beaches. We loved eating dinner by the pool in the evenings and we had everything we needed in a well equipped kitchen. I hope we can return to Villa Bellevista and to this beautiful area in the near future for another perfect family holiday. CN (English)2017

We had a wonderful stay at Ann Marie’s home. Only 10 mins walk from some great beaches and restaurants the location is great. Although it’s well worth hiring a car to explore the beautiful coastline. The house is very well equipped from pool toys to kitchen utensils and it was lovely to go to a holiday home hat felt homely – essentials were left in the cupboards so no need to rush out for coffee. Both Ann Marie and Roberto looked after us very well indeed. The information provided in the villa was particularly useful – so much info, we’d had been lost without it. The pool is great (mostly very deep but that was fine for my boys) and the views are just lovely. If you stay here be sure to hire the catamaran mentioned in the literature I the villa – it was a wonderful, relaxed day with snorkelling, pasta, prosecco and trampolining/dozing on the net. We can’t wait to visit again! NH (English) 2016

The apartment was even better than we anticipated. It was extremely clean, well equipped and stylish. The photos do not do it justice! We spent a wonderful week exploring the beautiful beaches close to the apartment, and enjoyed a morning in colourful San Panteleo market. The food is the local restaurants was fantastic, we eat lots of fish and drank some lovely local wine. Our week flew by, one week was just not enough, we wished we had booked for longer. Although we rarely holiday in the same location twice, this apartment is such a great find, and the owners and lady who looks after it are so helpful that we have already booked again for next year, but for two weeks instead of just one! We would not hesitate in recommending it to friends. Thank you for helping us find our perfect holiday home. AC (English) 2016

This is a wonderful apartment with everything you could possibly need. The view from the roof terrace was stunning and one we enjoyed watching at all times of day and night! Like previous reviews we so enjoyed the patio and garden area that we ate in several nights to enjoy the ambience- the candles and games provided added to the atmosphere! It was very hot during our stay so it was great that air conditioning was available and Margaret was very quick to sort it out for us and could not have been more helpful during our stay. The local beaches are stunning, all in all a great place to relax. H R(English) 2015

Fantastic view over the bay from a beautifully kept, three bedroom villa. The place has been kept immaculate, with an excellent kitchen and dining area. The attention to detail in the guide from the owners, packed with invaluable information about the local area and Sardinia in general, was incredible. Indeed, the whole client handling, from first contact to final review, was exemplary. Really happy I found this place, and will certainly want to return!G K (English) 2015

We had a wonderful holiday, thank you!! The flat provides a great base for exploring and relaxing and we’ll definitely recommend it to others. It had everything we needed.Thank you again for all your advice and excellent service throughout. KB (English) 2014

We had a fantastic time in your lovely villa it was superb and I miss the views already ! The villa was well equipped and the freezer packs and beach umbrella etc were very thoughtful and helped us enjoy our trips to the beach. The information you provided helped us quickly settle in and make the most of our stay. As a mum of three girls your tips for beaches and trips worked beautifully and we all had a wonderful time.We spent a lot of time on the wonderful beaches and we went to the communal pool. From the information you provided you care greatly about the villa and take pride in it.We will definitely come back to Sardinia and would love to stay with you again thank you. KB (English) 2014

We had a lovely holiday, your villa is superb, the best accommodation we have ever had. Spent some days around the pool, had some days at the first of the Costa Smeralda beaches from your notes (excellent). It is so unspoilt, we felt like we were the only tourists there. We ate at Mamma Beach (my daughter has developed a liking for oysters), La Squalo and the little restaurant closest by which did the best mussels. Definitely on our list of places to return to.RM(English) 2013

Even though the weather was not as good as could be expected in May on Sardinia we had a fantastic holiday. The Island is so beautiful and the house was perfect. We absolutely would love to go back another time. I have also recommended your house on my blog www.ulla-lullaby.blogspot.com US (Danish)2013

We all had a wonderful, relaxing break thanks, and didn’t want to come home!! Your apartment was just ideal and is so lovely and in such an ideal spot for travelling to the beaches (beautiful!!)and exploring the island. We have all said we would love to return one day.Thanks again for all your assistance in making the booking etc all very easy for me and for all the wonderful information which proved invaluable during our stay.

Thank you for helping us have a wonderful honeymoon. All your recommendations were spot on. La Squalo ended up being our own favourite but enjoyed every meal, every espresso, every day at Mama Beach and of course many a night having a glass of wine in your wonderful garden. The apartment is finished to perfection. We think you have great taste and will be planning a return trip to relive some of the memories.

Thanks, we had a great time.  The apartment was lovely – the view from the balcony was superb!  We will definately be back at some point, and have already recommended it to friends. The things that helped our stay were :  The v helpful folder of info – we spent a fair amount of time at Mama Beach (restaurant) as a result! The games for the kids. The kettle (how English is that ?!!) Good quality sheets. The balcony – best part of the apartment! Lovely cool colour scheme in the apartment. HC(English) 2012 

The apartment was just amazing… clean, comfortable, very good situation, great pool, quiet and an amazing terrace and a terrific view !!! We particularly like the blue book with all the information about the beaches, cities and restaurants. Also the chairs, umbrella for the beach were very appreciated. The milk, water and bottle of white wine was really appreciated too. The apartment was very well equipped! Thanks very much, we had great time in the beautiful Costa Smeralda !

We had a wonderful time thanks. I shed a little tear as we had to leave the beautiful balcony and amazing view for the last time. The apartment was one of the best if not the best we have stayed in – the kids loved it. I cooked in more than I expected as the good facilities in the kitchen, the Auchan and the balcony made it better than eating out! The beach chairs and bats and balls etc in the apartment were a nice touch – we used them all. The washing machine came in really handy and meant having the treat of clean beach towels midweek. The pool was clean and convenient, ideal. The brochure you put together was helpful and we read it though a few times to see your recommendations – another nice touch. We hired a car and went to the water park on the last day – which the kids really enjoyed. We found Margaret friendly and though we didn’t need to contact her while we were there, felt comfort in knowing she was there if we needed to speak to someone who spoke English. Thanks again and we will be sure to recommend your apartment to people we know.

We had a fantastic holiday, thank you so much for all your help in making our two weeks so pleasurable. The apartment was really great, so nicely and so well equipped and so beautifully kept and clean. We spent so much time on that fantastic balcony after great days on the beach. Your folder of info was much appreciated too as were the cool box and the ball. I have already recommended your apartment to friends and family and if any of them are interested in booking will definitely be giving your details. The lady who looks after your apartment was very helpful too.Thank you again for everything.

We had a wonderful week at your villa, and the kids loved the pool! We drove up the Costa Smeralda coast twice and got to experience both Porto Rorondo and Porto Cervo, we also spend a day at two of the beaches of at Cala di Volpe, unforgettable!! We are all sure we will return to Sardinia, one week is not nearly enough of this wonderful island!
AS (Norweigan) June 2011

At the beginning I want to tell you that we are a little disappointed! Disappointed cause we booked only for one week! We want to thank you for your very nice villa! When we arrived it was very clean. We loved to sit on your nice terrace with this beautiful view! The equipment was excellent and we are all totally relaxed now! Mama Beach was our favourite location. We sent your regards to Anna and Luca. They are very friendly people and the food was great. I will tell to all my family and friends which nice location we found in your villa! Now we hope that we can come back any time!
PR (Dutch) September 2011

We have now spent a fantastic week in your house. It was a lovely house with a fantastic view. It has to be one of the best in the whole area. The beaches were also great so the kids really enjoyed the stay. Sardinia is definitely an option for next year as well.
