Sardegna - Olbia-Tempio - PORTO ROTONDO / COSTA SMERALDA


PRIVATE STRUCTURE (lease only). Villa Ilaria is located in the hilly area close to the Costa Smeralda in Portisco. It is located halfway between San Pantaleo, a little gem of a borgo situated between the mountains of Gallura and the high life of the Costa Smeralda with its marvellous white sandy beaches. This small town is known and inhabited by artists from all over the world, truly a magical place. The property has a wonderful view over the Gulf of Portisco and is just over 2 km from the beaches. Villa Ilaria has just one floor and the private swimming pool is located right in front of the large veranda. There is an internal parking area for 3 cars.


The property has one floor. The main entrance leads directly into the large living/dining room with direct access out to the terrace facing the pool. The living room is connected to the kitchen, to a large veranda/portico furnished with table and chairs and to a corridor leading to the sleeping area which consists of a double bedroom with en-suite bathroom with shower, another double bedroom, a twin bedroom and a second bathroom with shower. The second part of the villa has access from the outside and consists of an open-plan living/dining room, a double bedroom, a bathroom with shower and another veranda/portico facing the pool. In this side is also the laundry.


The park, completely enclosed with dry stone walls and evergreen hedges, extends over a promontory for an area of about 5,000 sq m. In the Mediterranean-style garden are tall trees, hedges guaranteeing maximum privacy and a lawn as well as two old olive trees and various species of flowering plants. The villa has two large veranda/porticos facing the pool, furnished with tables and chairs and ideal for sampling the local delicacies while enjoying the beautiful view of the sea. Please notice that photos are taken in spring, therefore flower blossoming, and the colours of the gardens' grass could be different at the moment of your arrival at the villa.

Swimming Pool:

Location and distances

Villa Ilaria is located on a panoramic promontory in the Portisco area, in front of Porto Rotondo and a few kilometres from Porto Cervo. Portisco is known, as well as for its beaches, for its new and modern marina. The Marina di Portisco, just 2 km from the property, is an area with numerous restaurants and beaches that are both free and with bathing establishments. In the immediate vicinity is San Pantaleo, a characteristic little borgo that grew up in the early 19th century around a small stazzo (typical rural settlement of Sardinia), is equipped with all basic services. The area is strategically placed as it is equidistant from the main localities of the Costa Smeralda and from Olbia, and therefore from the port and the international airport. Moreover, short trips will take you to other famous places like Golfo Aranci (19 km) and La Maddalena (37 km). All this whilst enjoying a holiday in a relaxing area, far from the nightlife of the Costa Smeralda but only 2 km from the white beaches of this part of Sardinia.

Would you rent this villa again / recommend it to friends?
What are the aspects of the property that you appreciated the most?
the villa was spotless with great air conditioning, a beautiful pool and terrace and garden. Sara who was our main contact was so very responsive and helpful and excellent to deal with. The villa was even more beautiful than in the photos and it really was truly a special place to spend a week with family and friends. The only issue was the septic system would sometimes smell a bit but no big deal. The towels and bedding were excellent.
Do you have any suggestions to improve the property?
my only suggestion would be a little package on arrival with a map of the area, some recommended beaches, restaurants, things to do etc. We had no idea how to find anything or where to go until we spoke to some locals/neighbours so we would have loved a little package of ideas like you get from a concierge at a higher end hotel.
