About Luisa Peretti
Luisa and Lucia. Our family comes from Sardinia. I was born in Alghero, and Lucia was born in Rome, where we have always lived. For us, Sardinia means holidays, but more importantly, it is part of our soul. We got very attached to this place. The house, which has always belonged to our family, has been recently renovated by Lucia, and architect. Luisa, Italian teacher, is in charge of advertising the apartment and welcoming clients. We have always loved Alghero. When we were just two little girls, we had a sail boat that made us have the most wonderful holidays in our lives. Every year, we come to Alghero with our family and friends who gather together and live with us. We have a nice inflatable boat and love swimming in secluded coves as well as fishing and reading at sunset. In the evening, we all have dinner in the terrace of our house, with my mother, the kids, friends, and the obviously the dog.
What makes this Apartment unique
The view from all the windows and from the terrace makes this apartment so special. In the morning, you will be awoken up by the seagulls. The cormorants clean their feathers on the cliff and someone will pass by riding a bicycle. In the evening, when all tourists will be on the bastion or close to the tower to take a picture of the sunset, you will be on the balcony of the house, having a aperitif and feeling the luckiest person in the world. After sunset, the lights of the fishing boats turn on, and one can listen to the voices of walkers. During dinner, one can talk to friends. You will enjoy the night, the sound of the sea. The smells are also wonderful: the smells of the sea and the fish, fresh in the morning, fried at night! The apartment has the basic furnishing so that the square windows stand out. Enjoy Capo Caccia, the mountains of Bosa, and the beach of Bombarde. The furniture is mainly sand colour, like the walls, slightly pinkish. There are a few colours with the table and chairs that can be used both inside and outside the house. The ceiling is exposed, high, and wooden. The lamps are sea blue. The dishes, glasses, and linen combines with the surrounding colours.

Beautiful apartment, excellent location
The apartment was even nicer than the pictures and the location could not have been better. We had one issue with the intercom that must have been broken before we arrived and the property manager dealt with this by giving us the benefit of the doubt & refunding full deposit. All in all a great place to stay. I highly recommend it
Beautiful attic apartment in the historic centre, so you don’t need a car for browsing the Alghero. You can’t park close to the building since it’s in zone limited for cars. Beautiful terrace with the large sunumbrella and comfort chairs. The view is superb, especially at sunset. The appartment is even more charming than in the pictures, I love the wooden ceiling. The sofabed is rather small for 2 adults, but for 2 kids is fine. Luisa responded in a minute on all our questions. We had a great time and would definitely come again.
Thank you for your detailed review, it Will be really useful for future guests, and a great pleasure for me.
Looking forward to welcoming you again in Alghero
All the best Luisa
Wonderful views, apartment position couldn’t be better
Lovely apartment photos don’t capture its fantastic outlook. Spacious and comfortable, nice for a couple or small family.
Everything close enough like bread shop and supermarket make it possible to have some great breakfasts and lunches on the roof terrace. All equipment extremely clean and well designed, plenty of crockery,pans and everything required for cooking if you want to. Very peaceful with bedroom facing the sea. Will never forget the sunset just unbelievably beautiful. Such friendly host and people in Sardinia, would love to return in the future.
Apartment view on the seawall
This place met all our expectations. Perfect location in the old historic center on the pedestrian seawall. Close to very good restaurants, supermarket was a five minute walk. The apartment is spacious and allowed us to cook in and dine on the stunning terrace. This place has the ideal sunset viewing. We loved sleeping to the sound of waves. Very romantic getaway. Alghero is perfect for day trips to beaches and hiking. We are very happy with the whole experience here!
Thank you for your quik replay. It will be really helpful for future guests.
I really hope to have you again in Alghero.
Our recent stay in Alghero
We were overall very pleased with our recent stay in Alghero at this apartment. The location is great, just back from the sea on the western border of the "Centro Storico." It is on the top floor of a 3 floor building. There is not an elevator but for us that was not a problem. The apartment furnishings are somewhat spare but that is more than made up for by the location and the views, both from the terrace and the bedroom. The street below is closed to traffic except for a small number of service vehicles. It was very quiet while we were there in late April / early May. There are restaurants nearby that may be busier in the summer months but were not noisy during our stay. The bathroom was fine and the kitchen was adequately supplied with basic cooking essentials. The large bed was firm and comfortable. The apartment was very clean and the woman who met us with the keys and later reviewed the apartment at the time of our leaving was friendly and helpful. We would happily stay in this apartment again.
Very pleasant apartment with lovely sea views
We spent 3 weeks in this pleasant top floor apartment. Good-quality furniture, airy and lots of room, everything is there you need, even a real Italian cafetiera which we appreciated very much. And the WIFI works impeccably. A pleasure is the large and private west facing terrace with spectacular sunsets over the sea and Capo Caccia. The house is quiet and the bed perfect, so no problem with getting one´s nightly sleep.
The daily town market a short walk away offers a substantial selection of fresh local fruit and veg etc. Even 2 barracudas from a fish stand found their way in our frying pan. And the Delta supermarket, also quite near, sells great Sardinian sheep cheeses and has a remarkable choice of meat, also local lamb, and tasty Sardinian wines. The Girasol bar/café has fine filled typical Italian croissants, ideal for breakfast.
We loved the walks along the promenade, you can walk for miles in either direction. And the local buses serve a good net, are cheap and reliable.
The contact with the owner and housekeeper was very friendly and efficient, and we could warmly recommend this holiday apartment.
Thank you dear friends for your review and warm word.
