Casa di Volpe is situated in Pittulongu, which is perfect all year round, and is an ideal base for guests who want a stunning location, yet be close to good amenities. Pittulongu is known for its 1.5km beach of white sand, this is our nearest beach and is just a 10 minute walk away. Locally to us are some of the best beaches in Europe, all with beautiful white sand and crystal clear waters. Locally we have a well-stocked supermarket, a fish and bread shop, as well as some great restaurants and bars. The nearest restaurants are situated along the beach, and all offer a good selection of pasta, pizza and fish and views over the bay.
Olbia is just a 10 minute drive away, and is a bustling city and port (although more the size of an English town). Here you will find all the facilities you would expect, a good selection of shops, restaurants, bars, banks, a fantastic archaeological museum, roman remains and a hospital.
Olbia airport is just 20 minutes drive, Alghero airport is 1.5 hour drive straight across the island, and Cagliari is a 4 hour drive down south.
Pittulongu is also ideally sited to explore the beautiful coastline, the renowned Costa Smeralda, or Emerald coast, the marinas of Porto Cervo and Porto Rotondo, and the unspoilt and little known interior of the island.
For our booked guests exclusively we have arranged family friendly yacht charter on a 41ft catamaran, or a motor boat, both with English speaking Skippers.
Available on request at very good rates from June to September.
Water sports, tuition and hire of paddle boards, windsurfers, dinghies and ribs are available locally.
Sardinia is a paradise for sports enthusiasts with a wide range of sports available locally from cycling to caving to golf on one of the prettiest golf courses in the world, the renowned Pevero Golf Club.
There is a fun water park nearby.
Getting to Sardinia, and Olbia specifically is very easy and quick from the UK, other European cities, and even Russia, North America and Canada.
Even better with three airports on the island, and four major ferry ports, you can choose between flying and catching a ferry.
Sardinia is often called the 'Caribbean of the Mediterranean', but is just a 2.5 hour flight time from most European cities, so unlike the Caribbean there is no long haul flight, and better still no jet lag!! An early morning flight into Olbia will get you to our location before lunch, so by early afternoon you could be swimming in the sea or the pool.
Olbia benefits from both an airport and ferry port so you have the choice of either flying, or driving and arriving by ferry. Flying into Olbia is the best solution, as the airport is only a 20 minute drive, so a nice quick and easy transfer when you arrive. Olbia airport is south of the city, and we are north along the coast.
Easyjet flies into Olbia from London Gatwick, Luton, Bristol and Manchester.
BA flies into Olbia in season from London Heathrow.
In season June to October there are also charter flights from Birmingham and Stanstead.
NEW - From May - October 2022, Jet2 will be flying into Olbia from Birmingham, Leeds/Bradford, Manchester and Stanstead.
You could also consider a two location holiday flying into Olbia and spending time with us, and then going onto Corsica, or down south to Cagliari, or onto mainland Italy, all of which are served by Easyjet flights.
Olbia ferry port is even closer, so the other way to get to us is by ferry from mainland Italy, or indeed from France via Porto Torres on the west coast.
We always advise our guests to hire a car, as it seems a shame to come this fantastic island and not be able to explore the beautiful coastline and the unspoilt interior.
