Relaxation is possible with a toddler!
We have had a wonderful stay at the Villa Piras. We don't usually get round to writing reviews but thought we should do so this time to point out some of the features of the property that made it perfect for a family with a young toddler. Apologies to any other readers!
The property is small and simple, but with everything we needed (incl washing machine) - and two large covered patio areas (ideal for shade, or sheltering from the odd shower). The kitchen has a large fridge freezer and proper cooker (with oven) and all the crockery and utensils that you might need. There is also a large bbq outside so you could self cater very easily. Or, as we did, mainly just have breakfasts at the villa and sample the fantastic (and very reasonably priced) local restaurants, picking up a few delicious takeaway pizzas from Il Paguro in Fertilia as well.
We would thoroughly recommend Al Vecchio Moulino and Al Tuguri in Alghero, the former for wonderful (and very reasonable) pizzas and pastas and the latter for a treat meal. We also had a lovely meal at the Pergola restaurant on the road on the way to Alghero, which was ideal after a long day trip to Asinara as you can park right outside. Our daughter was welcomed everywhere we went, which made eating out a fun and relaxing experience for everyone.
The villa is set in enormous grounds, which are enclosed and gated - meaning that we let our 2.5 year old run free(ish). There was even the odd moment that we both managed to read our books simultaneously...! Villa Alessandra is also in the grounds at a discreet distance, and the two would work well for an extended group as you could all squeeze round the dining table on the patio. The windows are all barred, so no concerns about escaping toddlers. We brought a portable door gate and bedside rail to minimise nocturnal disturbances... Shutters meant that our toddler lay in much longer than at home, and there are good fly screens for warmer weather. You can walk (through a locked gate) to a creek to paddle in the sea. There is also a lovely sandy beach just up the coast 5 minutes away in the car, which had a nice cafe restaurant at it.
We have never visited Sardinia before and found it a great place to unwind. Locals suggested that we were rather unfortunate with the weather (most days not that warm, and a couple cold and wet - though a couple of gorgeous days too). However we enjoyed pottering around the local area, visiting the towns and eating - a lot!
Dear what a lovely review. Thanks a lot! I'm happy that you enjoy your stay. Imagine this holiday during late May, or June or September. October also is very nice.. with tons of sun and lovely weather..
I hope see you again, and I wish for you all the best. Thanks again.
A peaceful place with perfekt location!
We visited Villa Piras in september, 2 adults and 2 small children (4 and 1 years) and it was all we wished for! A place to live a simple and peaceful life in the countryside away from other tourists. But still having the perks of having the city of Alghero closeby, with restaurants and food markets. The description in the ad is very accurate. A two minute walk from the house through nice landscape takes you to the sea. An almost private (in september at least) little sandy beach among pebble and rock beaches. Small, but perfect for little kids. (But wear shoes in the water! ) The house and garden is very safe for kids. The owners are a really sweet and friendly couple who arranged crib and highchair for our baby, there were no problem that we arrived late at night and they made sure we had bottled water and a large bowl with grapes from the garden at arrival. They only speak italian, so bring a parlor! Contact with Maria (agent) was also good. There is one more house for rent in the garden, but it still feels very private. Located very close to the airport a few planes pass over the house, but we were not disturbed about that. 300m from the house there is an agritourismo farm, I can strongly recommend to eat there! We loved it in Sardinia and villa Piras!
Very nice house, lovely position, very quiet.
Thanks a lot!
Piękne miejsce, bardzo mili właściciele. Jedyne czego brakowało to klimatyzacja ( trafiliśmy na duże upały). Duży ogrodzony teren idealny dla dzieci. Blisko mała plaża- kamienista ale z fragmentami piasku. Dziękujemy za miłe wakacje!

The villa is situated in an area of great peace and beauty in a pine forest not far from the lively town of Alghero and just 800 meters from the village of Fertilia. The house is surrounded by a garden of pine trees and hidden from view by fruit trees and olive trees. The spacious garden allow walks and games while the view allows you to breathe a bucolic and exotic, far away from the busy city. The sea is only 150 meters from the chalet, and the cove beach and rocks reserve a panorama unchallenged on the Gulf of Alghero.
The Gulf of Alghero offers however a range of different colored sand beaches, away from the house from 3 to 15 km: Lido San Giovanni, Bombarde, Maria Pia, Lazzaretto, Mugoni, Marina, Porto Ferro, etc.
The promontory of Capo Caccia is home to one of the most famous tourist caves, frequented since 1800, reachable by land or by boat: The Caves of Neptune.
The surroundings are beautiful, made attractive by limestone cliffs and the islets in front inhabited by protected species. Numerous then are hiking that you can do in the Natural Park of Porto Conte, a protected area where they live wild ponies and donkeys, deer and other species. Inside there are opportunities for cultural visits to archaeological sites such as the dolmen Palmavera and the prehistoric necropolis of Anghelu Ruju.
Alghero is finally a vibrant city full of restaurants offering seafood, pizza, local aperitifs. The historic center elegant, dating back to the Catalan and Spanish domination, has sixteenth-century buildings, cobbled streets and a long sea wall on which to stroll on warm summer evenings.
