On the glistening Costa Smeralda, a short drive to an idyllic beach, Villa Brau enjoys wonderful views towards the sea and is only a ten-minute drive from the exclusive resort of Porto Cervo.
Set within gated grounds, this beautiful house is a joy to spend time in. There’s an air of relaxed decadence in the open-plan living and dining room with doors leading to a superb terrace looking out towards the sea. There’s five romantic bedrooms, three with their own terraces and two leading to the garden, each with lavish en suite bathrooms. The interiors are modern yet classic and there’s air-conditioning throughout. Pretty touches add Sardinian charm to this welcoming and characterful abode.
In the heart of the lush gardens is the glorious swimming pool with its stone terrace and tranquil waterfall feature, perfect for hot summer days. Enjoy barbecued feasts whilst gazing out towards the macchia covered hills from the al-fresco terrace or relax with a chilled glass of Sardinian white wine with views of the coast.
Wander out of your home and within a short distance you will discover the nearest restaurant as well as a supermarket, bakery, gelateria and other useful amenities. The most adventurous can follow nearby trails down to the beach with its white soft sand that shelves gently towards the turquoise coloured sea – there are likewise many other idyllic coves and pretty beaches within a short drive. The 18-hole golf course, designed by Robert Trent Jones and arguably one of the best on the island, is also just a couple of kilometres away.
Spend time in the exclusive resort of Porto Cervo with its glitzy marina and fine dining restaurants or drive up to Palau and sail across to the exceptional Maddalena isles. Follow coastal paths through the Sardinian macchia or ride horses in the rugged interiors – there is so much of this emerald island to discover during your time at Villa Brau.
Villa Brau is set in a residential area with wonderful views towards the sea, just 6km south of Porto Cervo in the heart of the famous Costa Smeralda.
The nearest restaurant is within walking distance and a little further, just over a kilometre away, are useful amenities such as a supermarket, bakery, cash machine, pharmacy and a gelateria. Bike hire is also available nearby whilst golf lovers will appreciate the island’s most stunning golf course just a couple of kilometres away.
The beaches along this part of the coastline are superb. Around 3km away you will reach a remarkable beach with soft sand and turquoise waters that gently shelve into the bay. A little further west, there’s a smaller beach with sun-beds and little boats to hire.
A short drive will also take you to the lovely little resort of Capriccioli as well as the pink sand of Spiaggia La Celvia, both idyllic spots along this glorious stretch of coast. Also discover wonderful restaurants with sea views, summer beach clubs, watersports, boat hire as well as endless spectacular coves and beaches along the Costa Smeralda.
The exclusive resort of Porto Cervo is around 6km by car. Wander around the marina looking out for celebrities, dine in one of the excellent restaurants or browse the designer boutiques. Created by Prince Karim Aga Khan in the 1950s, there’s a glamourous vibe across the town and it’s a fantastic place to visit.
There is horse-riding within a short drive whilst keen walkers can find so many amazing trails to follow from coastal paths through the macchia with tremendous views to walking routes through the rugged interiors. In the meantime, history lovers will appreciate the many hundreds of megalithic nuraghe across the emerald isle.
The lively town of Palau (30km) is another great day out, especially if you combine it with a trip to the delightful La Maddalena islands, just a short boat trip from Palau harbour. Discover some of the most amazing beaches with white sand and crystal-clear sea, some of which are only accessible by boat. Find a picture-perfect restaurant with idyllic views or explore the lively town of La Maddalena on the main island with its cafes, bars and shops. There are of course many incredible walking trails too.
