Villa is located at the heart of Costa Smeralda, near the renowned Liscia Ruja and Cala di Volpe beaches, a few minutes away from the fancy Porto Cervo. The villa is unique: its project was prepared by architect Rosa Marchese, the famous author of Petra Segreta Resort & Spa. This house embodies the Sardinian tradition alongside modern trends, and brings together comfort and the welcoming atmosphere of a traditional home. Wood, plaster, natural stone, Chinese, African, and Balinese antique furniture all make the villa especially charming. Villa, which enjoys the loving care of its owners, is a quiet oasis surrounded by a landscape park with a large pool. The house is hidden among granite rocks, in the midst of lush Mediterranean nature boasting of centenarian juniper, pistachio trees, arbuti, myrtles, and olive trees.
