This was our second stay at Villa Pidda, it’s been just perfect for us. The location is everything! It is only a short walk to the center of San Teodoro (good restaurants, shops, a grocer very nearby, and of course the night market), and to La Cinta beach. The flat is not fancy, but has everything we need for a relaxed beach vacation. The bathroom is large and we always find it clean and well-maintained, the kitchen is just enough for preparing small meals, with a decent sized refrigerator and small freezer. Air conditioning is nice to have for very warm evenings. But the highlight is the large, breezy balcony with a beautiful view — and being on the upper floor provides breezes through many windows all day and evening. The owners are very friendly (and patient with our poor Italian!). We think of it as our home away from home in Sardinia, and we hope to return again for another summer holiday!
We had such a great experience with this property and the owners, we definitely want to return again! The flat was exactly as advertised, clean and in an excellent location. It was exactly what we had hoped for. We were only two, so there was plenty of room for us, but there would also be room for a couple more people, or a family with a couple of children. The kitchen is small but everything worked fine, it has a good sized refrigerator, and the bathroom was very large, clean and very nice (very important when spending many days on the beach in hot weather!). Many windows allow in the light and a gorgeous Mediterranean breeze. The best part, though, was the balcony -- open on three sides with wonderful views of town and even a bit of the sea. We spent most of our time sitting outside enjoying the beautiful weather! Even when it was very hot, the balcony was shady and breezy. There was some new construction going on next door during the daytime, but it was not too noisy, and nothing could spoil our enjoyment of that outdoor space -- so lovely!!
The location was excellent -- just a few blocks away from the center of town, very convenient to a food market, pharma, shops and the main roads to the beaches. But it is also secluded enough that it is not noisy or crowded. And most important, it's only two/three blocks from our favorite restaurant L'Artista! Couldn't have been better!
The owners were also very gracious and helpful - we don't really speak much Italian (though we are learning now!) so we had a couple of miscommunications, but they worked with us to figure everything out - very patient. In the end, we had no problems with anything!
We just can't say enough about how much we enjoyed our stay. We hope to see Villa Pidda again soon! Thank you again for helping to make our vacation so perfect!
