We rented Olivastri in May this year for a special family occasion.
The Villa is not just any old rental, its a much loved family home that every inch is cared for in every aspect.
I work in Interiors and adored all the design details of this classic Sardinian Villa. With its pristine white washed curved walls, and its curved rooms, patio, elevated garden, and roof terrace, its very cool and stylish.
Several people are involved with the ongoing care of the property, and they really do care for it. That attention to detail really comes through when staying and provides a warmth and that sometimes large holiday homes often lack.
Due to the layout of the bedrooms, it was perfect for a large family to share and yet still be private. You can have lively kids at one end and tired Grandparents at the other and everyones happy. The house has many 'zones' to create lovely family moments, such as sharing pizza around the large family dining table next to an open - wonderful.
The position of the house makes the best of the sunlight, with the back terrace flooding with the afternoon sunlight.
The views from the roof are amazing.
On a practical level, the showers are all very good and super hot (sometimes an issue in older properties).
The kids adored the private beach and all the nature, although sensible walking shoes for everyone are a must as its very rustic as natural. We stayed with two 5 year old twins and made sure access to the roof terrace was locked to be safe.
The surrounding area is so beautiful, but if you shopped at the supermarket on day one, then did not leave at all, you still would of had an amazing holiday as everything you need is at the Villa. There's so much more I could say, but in summary, we think we've found a peace of heaven, and we will be going back for sure.
