Apartment in the historic centre of Sant'Antioco with a terrace of 30 squared meters where you can have dinner under the moon.
What people like about my apartment: the old furniture, the way I decorated the house and especially the terrace.
What people like less: the bedroom with wooden floor faces the street so you can hear the cars sometimes, but luckily the street is one way only. Moreover the other bedroom is quiet.

Apartment in the historic centre of Sant'Antioco, the apartment is composed by a big double bedroom, a smaller internal double bedroom whose window brings to the living room, a bathroom with shower, a kitchen with living room and a big terrace where you can have dinner and cook your food in the barbecue.
In walking distance you can find the museum, the ancient church with catacombs and all the archeological sites of the town, the archeological area is literally behind the corner! On Friday nights there are tours of this area that start around 9,00 pm (you buy the tickets at the ethnographic museum), I think this area is very charming especially at night so I highly recommend this tour. The nearest beach is 6 km away, but the island is not so big so every beach is near, on the south east and north west of the island there are sandy beaches and on the south west there are rocks, it is very nice going snorkeling there, and the rocks are very smooth becuse of the winter waves!
Every monday and thursday around 11,30 in the morning Mr. Carmelo stops his van right in front of the door and sells fresh fruit and vegetables that come from the Villacidro area and are very delicious.
During the summer you con enjoy the beutiful sea and many festivals, (at the end of August and beginning of September there are some famous jazz and blues festivals in towns nearby).
In spring and autumn you can go hiking and trekking and discover the beautiful scenery and the archeological sites hidden in the countryside.
Two weeks after Easter on Monday there is the festival of the town.
During the winter it is the right place if you want to relax, discover the archeological spots of the island and stay away from crowded places. The winter here is cold but sunny, so if you come from northern Europe you can have a break from the dark even during winter.
This house is also a good base for going kite surfing in Punta Trettu.
I would recommend coming to Sant'Antioco in June and September, this months are the best because you can enjoy the beautiful beaches when they are almost empty, it is so peaceful and relaxing. The hot weather usually lasts until the end of October. I also like winter in my island, it is the most peaceful moment of the year and the sun shines also during cold days!
This house was built at the end of 1800 by my grand grand grand parents and it was also my grandmother's house. I didn't like this house when I was younger, but while I was doing restoration jobs I started to see the charme of it. The old pieces of furniture, the old pavements......every single piece of this house tells a story about a time we come from, but that can be experienced only through stories told by elder people.
You can use the whole house and everything is inside.
Interaction with guests
We will meet when you arrive and I'll give you the keys and show you the house, if you need anything during your stay you can call me any time!
Other things to note
The bedroom that faces the street can be noisy in the morning when cars start to circulate, but luckily the road is one way, if you find it too noisy you can use the other bedroom which is very silent instead.
Silence after 10 pm is very important, we have a good relationship with neighbours and it is very important for us to keep it. :)
For what concerns the garbage I leave the calendar in the kitchen. They collect the garbage door by door so it is very important to divide everything in the correct way. if you forget to leave the garbage outside the gate on the right day it does not matter, but be very careful to divide plastic, glass and aluminium (together), paper, organic.
Please don't throw anything in the toilette except for toilette paper, that can lead to very unpleasant situations for you!:)
Apart for this rules feel free to use everything you want in the house, I hope you will feel at home!
From Jul 1 - Aug 31, 2018 the minimum stay is 10 nights.
I love houses that have a story to tell. My houses are very special for me and I like sharing their atmosphere by hosting people that will have a nice memory of their holiday and will keep my places alive for a while.
I like antiques, swimming in the sea, fireplaces and cats.
