Spiaggia del Riso - gorgeous holiday villas right on the
Down a pair of steps, past flowering oleander bushes and
evergreen macchia, the path to the beach on the famous "Spiaggia del Riso" bay
in Villasimius with its amazing rock formations, turquoise green sea and soft
warm sand is 20 to 150 m long, depending on the villa's location. And in the
distance, the shimmering blue silhouette of the undeveloped mound of the island
to the south. Further beaches are only a stone's throw away: you can reach the
long sandy Campulongu beach on foot and Cala Giunco with its high, white sand
dunes is a few minutes away by car.
The "Spiaggia del Riso" houses lie in an

setting and surrounded by a large Mediterranean garden with shady olive and
olivastro trees and the typical macchia bushes, every house is an ideal refuge
for a beach holiday. Whether on the covered terrace, which almost always has a
terrific sea view, or whether on one of the comfortable sunbeds in the garden,
you will never imagine yourself tiring of the beguiling interplay of colours and
light and shade between the turquoise blue sea, the dark green macchia and the
bright red bougainvillea. Not to mention the mild summer nights under a clear
and starry sky.
