“Perfect connection of holidyas in a quiet country area at the same time just 5 minutes from the city center.”

We were very reluctant to make this review as this is like disclosing of Coca Cola recipe but we have finally decided to do so because Michele and Lucia deserve it. We've been to a dozen or so holiday houses in Mediterian area and La Maison du Monde is definitely number one for us.

The best recommendation is that we have been there already twice and this year we have booked our third stay.

This is not a fancy modern villa with furniture made of glass and up-to-date design which looks more like made for Elle Decoration photo session than spending summer holidays with kids. This is a normal country house in a country area with its history, surrounded by nice green garden with grass, trees and hedges. The house is extremely cozy and comfortable despite being just a normal country house having couple dozen of years. It has everything you might need. Our favorite part is a shaded patio between the house and swimming pool where you may spend your time (dining or just drinking wine) at the same time watching your kids playing in the pool. What we finds extraordinary is that despite the house is in the authenitic rural area (vineyards, olive trees plantations, etc.) it is literally 5 minutes’ drive to the center of Alghero. Therefore it is extremally easy to make any kind of shopping or just to go for a dinner to Alghero.

This was our second visit to Maison du Monde (see previous review for more specific details from 2016) and it was every bit as wonderful as the first.

It is such a lovely house and perfectly equipped for a young family. You couldn't ask for more from a holiday home. Loads of room, plenty to do, wonderful swimming pool, outdoor BBQ, hammock, badminton net...

Sardinia is a fantastic place to visit, especially the area in and around Alghero. Bosa is also a fantastic place to see.

The beaches (La Speranza and Stintino especially) are the best I have ever seen. So clean and unspoilt.

Massive thanks to our wonderful hosts, Michele and Lucia. We had a fantastic holiday. X Julian and family x

“Just gorgeous”
Reviewed 5 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We loved everything about our stay at La Maison du Monde. Michele and Lucia were extremely helpful providing us with a fantastic summary of the local area (beaches, restaurants, boat trips etc). The villa was very pretty and relaxing - a traditional shabby chic interior in a beautiful setting. Everything was very clean and we had everything we needed. Everyone loved the pool - 6 year old and teenagers! It is only small but perfect to cool down in and for the kids to play. The local area is beautiful and everything is close by (in a car), beaches stunning, food delicious. If you're looking to experience the real Sardinia then this villa is for you. We'll be back! Thank you Michele and Lucia

“Absolutely brilliant”

We travelled to Alghero (via Olbia airport - 90 min drive) and were met by Lucia and Michele. They are a lovely, helpful couple who made our two week stay in Alghero a truly wonderful experience. It was the best holiday we have ever had.

Maison du Monde is a large two double bedroom house with two bathrooms, a large kitchen and dining area, and is fully equipped with everything you could need on holiday. There is a dishwasher, washing machine, fully equipped kitchen, coffee maker, tv, DVD player, wifi. Everything.

Outside is a marvellous swimming pool (1m deep) and a badminton net, outdoor shower, big table and chairs, fantastic built in bbq, large lawn, hammock, washing line. It is a dream. Check out the photos online. Absolutely beautiful. Really luxurious.

The house is 2 min drive from Alghero and has a very safe feel to it. Parking is very secure and the house is accessed through an electronic gate. There's another, smaller house, in the same area. Also run by Michele and Lucia. Access to the pool and garden (and everything I've mentioned above) is exclusive to Maison du Monde.

Michele and Lucia visited every couple of days to cut the lawn, and clean the pool. They were incredibly friendly and had some really good advice on where to visit:

You must see

1- Alghero, the old town/ramparts.
2- Bosa, beautiful mountain drive to one of the prettiest towns I have ever seen
3- Maria Pia. Local beach.
4- Castelsardo. 80 min drive, another beautiful town.
5- Stintino beach. As good as the beaches in Bermuda

We had an absolutely brilliant time in Maison du Monde. Everything was perfect and I could not recommend it more highly.

We will be back!

Our kids were 5 and 7 at the time of our visit and they agree that this was the best holiday ever. Their favourite bit was the pool!

“very charming”
Reviewed 3 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Beautiful place with great and helpful hosts (special regards to Michele and Lucia). Amazing location in rural outskirts, but at the same time few minutes drive from Alghero, which is exactly what we look for. The house and facilities were completely as advertized and they look exactly the same as in the photos. The pool is very nice, as well as surrounding grounds, with volleyball net and a hammock, there is also a vineyard and fruit trees. We usually rent more modern houses, but this rustic one was a nice change. More comfortable lounge chairs in the outside sitting area, an oven in the kitchen and the possibility to set lights in the pool at your convenience (they turn off automatically at 11.30) would be a plus. All in all, this is relaxing and charming setting. We had a great time there and would not hesitate to recommend the house to our friends.

We are very pleased and happy to have offered to Darija and her family a special holiday "Out of the Ordinary" in our country villa. Also this time we are glad to have not disappointed the expectations of our hosts. We thank to Darija for letting us know about the new services required; in fact we just bought for our future guests an electric oven. We will provide to buy new comfortable mattresses, other chaise longe for the veranda and a remote control to turn on and off the pool lights as convenience of each client, also.
The suggestions of our customers are very important to us.
Thanks again ... see you next year.
