Villa Azzurra - a breathtaking sea view
Amidst fragrant macchia shrubs, Villa Azzurra reigns over the sea with views of the turquoise, crystal-clear water. After visiting this unique location, which is one-of-a-kind even within Sardinia, you'll never feel quite the same again. Wake up to the soft roar of the sea, and watch the glowing sun sink into the water as dusk creeps in. Just sixty steps down the property's private staircase and guests arrive at the water. Nature lovers will fall head over heels for the tranquility and seclusion of the area, whilst never tiring of the awe-inspiring granite forms shaped by the wind and water. Even at the height of summer, Villa Azzurra's roof terrace flat, is an oasis of peace.

White and blue - the sea in your living room
Villa Azzurra is the summer residence of its well-travelled owners, a couple who cherish the peace and seclusion of their heavenly corner of the Earth above everything. Therefore, the flat can only be rented to adults. Villa Azzurra is new, modern and stylish right down to the very last detail. The flair and atmosphere of this gem guarantee that you feel at home as soon as you open the front door. One of the highlights of the house is a room-high, mirrored wall in the living room, which reflects the gradually-changing blue tones of the sea as the day goes by. In addition to a living room, the roof terrace flat features a dining room, two bedrooms, two modern bathrooms with showers, and a fully-equipped kitchen with a dishwasher, a washing machine and an oven. All of the rooms have air conditioning. A private car park is situated in front of the house. The plot is fenced and has private beach access.
With a terrace in front of the living room and bedroom, the outdoor area is equally as fascinating as the indoor space and invites guests to while away the hours. A lower terrace in the garden, which can be reached from the private path, beckons you to lie back in the sun, or enjoy a barbecue evening around the wonderfully rustic grill. A few more steps downwards lead to the bathing area complete with platform, from which you can dive into the waves of the Mediterranean. On a clear day, the shadowy outlines of the mountains along the Gulf of Cagliarican be made out.

Enjoy the video of the apartment Azzurra!
