Sardinia and Corsica - Pula
Villa Pietrabianca – Pula – South Sardinia
5 Bedrooms – Private Pool
A truly delightful property in a very pretty area of Sardinia that has so far remained untouched by mass tourism. You can still wander down to the bar at the marina and they will remember your name and how you like your coffee in the morning. Even if you don't make it to the bar for breakfast, mornings spent in the secluded garden at Villa Pietrabianca will more than make it up to you as you take your pick from the fresh figs on the tree or perhaps an almond or two with your cereals. You can also be assured of magical summer evening meals under the jasmine-scented gazebo and after-dinner conversations lounging around the pool on the beanbags.
Villa Pietrabianca is at the end of a private road, which is comprised of only fourteen houses in total. The villa is about 100 metres from the gated stretch of beach which is reserved for these few houses and 700 m from the marina Perd'e Sali, which features a bar, a pizzeria/restaurant, homemade ice-creams, dive shop, boat rentals and kayaking. Perd'e Sali is situated less than 5 km from the bustle of nearby Pula, with its white sand beaches, turquoise waters, summer attractions, festivals and piazzas.
The archaeological site of Nora is a must on any serious traveller's list. Nora lies next to the beach at Pula and is probably the oldest settlement in Sardinia. It was founded by the Phoenicians but was probably a Nuraghi site even before the arrival of the Phoenicians and then later became a Roman settlement in the third century BC. Although part of Nora is underwater, the visible remains that can be visited include a series of well-preserved mosaics, the theatre and the bath structures.
Villa Pietrabianca is fairly close to the amazing beaches of Chia. A half an hour drive will take you to the famous white sands, emerald waters, promontory walks and idyllic sandy coves hidden along the footpaths. Chia is famous for water sports, which include kite surfing, wind surfing, snorkelling, kayaking and sub-aqua dives.
Villa Pietrabianca makes a great holiday retreat for large families or groups of friends and the property is ideal for organising special events around the pool.
The property is about 35 km from Elmas international airport, just outside Cagliari. The international port, train station and bus station are handily right next to other in Cagliari and close to the lovely historical centre. The seaside town of Pula is 5 km from Villa Pietrabianca, Nora Archaeological site 6 km and the beaches and town of Chia only 24 km.
