Villa Virago is perfectly located for a family holiday. The small, gated private beach (for the exclusive use of just 14 properties on the street) is just 100m away with the sandy public beach just a few metres further on.
Also within walking distance is the friendly, relaxed little marina of Perd'e Sali 750m away. There you'll find a coffee bar (perfect for breakfasts or evening aperitifs), a gelateria (ice cream shop), restaurant (great steaks and pizzas) and a tobacconists. There's also a kayak hire centre, a dive centre and boat hire all still at the marina.
The buzzing town of Pula is 4km away and offers a host of great restaurants and shopping opportunities as well as live concerts in the town square over the summer.
For the young (and the young of heart) the BluFan water park is 4.5km awayand offers a great day out. Alternatively, head to the Is Molas golf resort (7km) or the riding centre in the village (1.5km) if you're feeling sporty.
Beach wise, you're spoilt for choice as Nora (also home to the ruins of the Roman capital of Sardinia) is 8.5km away, and between 15-20 minutes drive you also have the famous beaches at Santa Margherita, Chia and Tuerredda.
Cagliari, Sardinia's principal city is just 35 minutes drive away
A car is not essential for your stay here as the beach and local facilities are easily accessible by foot. We are also happy to offer a supermarket shopping and delivery service for a small additional charge. However, the local area is so beautiful it would be a shame not to get out and explore it for at least a few days, so we would reccommend car hire to our guests

I spent over a decade working in the luxury travel business before giving it all up to dedicate myself to the renovation and management of my own dream villa, Villa Virago. I am passionate about Sardinia, design, antiques, recycling and great holidays... all of which I hope comes through in the Villa Virago experience for my guests.
Sarena purchased this Villa in 2015
Why Sarena chose Sarroch
I have been in love with the Pula area of Sardinia for several years now and for a few years had been looking for the right villa in the area to renovate and offer as a holiday rental. When I first visited Villa Virago, it was love at first sight and I decided within minutes that I had finally found my dream villa... just days later the paperwork was completed and I was handed the keys. I loved the architecture with it's curving turrets outside and that amazing granite spiral staircase that dominates the living areas. The luxury of a private beach for the occupants of our street was just too good to miss; I have never before or since seen a villa in Sardinia that could offer something like that, especially 100m away. The villa needed a lot of TLC when I first saw it as it hadn't been renovated since it was built in the 1970's so I rolled up my sleeves and set to work over a 12 month period with an amazing team of volunteers found via the Workaway site. This was a real labour of love and such an amazing learning process, and seeing my dream for what the villa could become slowly take shape was one of the most satisfying experiences of my life. Not only did we install a pool, new floors, refurb two bathrooms and add a third, add a brand new kitchen, lay a new lawn and completely rewire but we also hand sourced and created 90% of the furniture from fleamarkets and antique shops making the villa totally unique and stylish. To have been selected as one of the "Best 50 Villas in the Mediterranean" by The Times in February 2017 was more than I could possibly have hoped for when I first started the project. I love Villa Virago... and I can't wait to have you here to visit and see what you think!
