The villa has a relaxing, get away from it all feeling, surrounded by the pine forest and lovely views of the hills. It is quiet and peaceful without being too remote. You are not at the villa long before you are relaxing, sitting by the pool reading or just catching up on the long awaited rest. As you wind down all the planned sight seeing starts to become a chore, but if you can drag yourself away there is plenty to see.

Most food and wine is local grown and tastes lovely.

Wonderful 2 week Holiday at Arcobelano
By on 13-Aug-2019
> Just returned from a wonderful two week holiday at Villa Arcobaleno. The house feels spacious and is very well equipped. The outside area was our favourite, the pool was fantastic, a very good size and the perfect temperature especially for the children. It was also great to have some shaded seating areas as it was very hot during our stay. We also made good use of the pool table and board games. The villa is really private and surrounded by pine trees which smelt wonderful. Rhondda and Giovanni greeted us on arrival and looked after us during our stay and even helped us when our hire car got a flat tyre, an absolutely lovely couple. Paul the owner was excellent to deal with when making the booking, the correspondence was very efficient before and during the holiday which we really appreciated.
> Overall 5/5 rating. Many thanks

Well Planned Accomodation
By Margaret Marlow on 25-Sep-2018
Stayed Sep 2014
A very large villa with well planned accommodation with every home comfort. Well equipped kitchen and utility room with modern appliances. Especially impressed with the wifi, television and video equipment. Lots of games and books all well kept and in good order. On suite bathrooms nicely situated within large bedrooms. Lots of space for families or friends to enjoy. Lovely outside area and the pool is a great size for both games and serious swimming. Very comfortable out door seating in different areas enabling visitors to relax - lovely large dining table and chairs for al fresco dining. Situated in a nice quiet area 5 minutes from the nearest supermarkets in Sorso of which there are 3 very close together and have all that is needed for an authentic Italian food shop. The beach is very close and was really quiet when we stayed. The adjacent pine forest smells wonderful in the early evening and we enjoyed watching the wildlife around the villa - we were even lucky enough to spot the resident tortoise who was very shy.

Beautiful well equiped Villa in Great Location

Beautiful, well Equipped Villa in Great Location

This was our third stay at this villa and, as before, we couldn't have been more delighted with it - the owners have made several improvements making it even better than last year!
The villa is set in large grounds in a quiet, rural location, set well back from the road with an excellent, good size pool - ideal for families.
As in previous years, we were welcomed by Rhondda who had kindly provided some provisions and some beautiful cakes. Rhondda is a real star - very helpful and knowledgeable and it's reassuring to know that help is available if ever you need it.
The owners, Paul and Carole, are helpful and nice people to deal with too. For example, Paul gave us a call shortly before we travelled to check everything was OK and ask if there was anything we needed.
The villa is very comfortable, spacious, well maintained and equipped with everything you could reasonably wish for to have a relaxing / stress free holiday including good Wi-Fi! There is plenty of furniture, inside and outdoors (including in the shade or sun) - ideal if you want to relax by the pool.
Whilst the villa is in a quiet location, it is also conveniently located for shops (less than a 5 minute drive to Sorso) and the coast with many beautiful beaches and stunning scenery within easy striking distance.
Highly recommended - We're already looking forward to going back again next year!

We had a fabulous time!

Perfect family destination. The outside area was ideal for the children. The villa was comfortable and had everything we needed. The best part for us was the sense of escapism we felt to a beautiful and non-commercial island. Armed with our phrase book we loved exploring this region. Would go back in a heartbeat! Also Paul and Ronda couldn't do enough for us. Fabulous customer service like all holidays should be. Thank you for a marvellous holiday.

Both Carole and myself and of course Rhondda and Giovanni in Sardinia are pleased that the villa exceeded your expectations!

We didn't really want to share how wonderful this was but guess it's only fair!
Situated in a secluded and private location surrounded by trees and framed by an Italian garden we found Villa Arcobaleno to be spacious, clean and comfortable. Everything we could possibly need and more was catered for. We particularly loved the fresh basket of veggies left for us and these, together with Jamie Oliver's Italian Cookbook, a cupboard full of oils and herbs and a pizza oven enabled us to enjoy the full on Italian experience!
The pool was fantastic, large, clean and pleasantly warm. The hardest decision was whether to swim, play any of the board games there or have a game of pool.
Although quietly tucked away there are fantastic restaurants, secluded beaches and well stocked supermarkets just minutes away by car. We didn't venture far as it was idyllic where we were but there are some interesting old towns not too far afield.
Special thanks must go to Rhonda and her family for ensuring everything was perfect and that we were well looked after without being disturbed at all. The delicious and thoughtful goodies left for us by them were truly bellissimo.
Thanks to all - hope to return again soon.

Fantastic Villa and Management
By Glenn H on 15-Aug-2015
Stayed Jul 2015
We enjoyed a fantastic 2 week stay in this Villa. The listing description was accurate and we found it without any problems. It was spacious and private, surrounded by trees making for a really relaxing, tranquil break. There was a lovely vegetable garden where we collected our own lemons, peppers, basil, plums and tomatoes. We did make the assumption that there was air conditioning throughout the villa but it is only in the two master bedrooms upstairs. It was particularly hot during our stay (almost 40 degrees most days) so we found that difficult at times with young children.
The facilities at the villa were are excellent, the pool was fabulous for children as it is shallow enough for non swimmers to feel confident in and it large enough for ball games etc too. The pool table is a great addition and kept the kids entertained. There were loads of board games to play, everything you might need in the kitchen, even a hand blender which I was especially pleased about with a 6 month old baby to puree food for! The pizza oven was great, we used it 3 times, the kids loved making pizza dough, collecting wood for the fire and watching the pizza's cook.
The property was clean when we arrived although it was quite dusty under the sofas and beds which we noticed when fishing around for lost toys etc. The bedding was changed mid way through our holiday which was great but it would have been nice to also have the bathrooms/floors cleaned at that point too as things got quite mucky with 5 children in the villa.
The management team provided an outstanding service for us. There was wine in the fridge when we arrived, the bins were emptied regularly and we even got a large box of fresh vegetables left for us midway through the holiday which was a very unexpected but a lovely gesture! Rhondda was so helpful with any questions we had, she recommended several restaurants and offered to book table for us if we needed her to, she told us about a local festival to go to which was great fun and recommended some lovely places for us to visit. We particularly enjoyed wandering the streets of Alghero in the early evening to soak up the atmosphere.
Overall I would highly recommend the villa and the area, we had a wonderful stay.

Thank you for your very positive review. We endeavour to make your holiday as comfortable as possible and it looks very much like we achieved this!!
With regard to the negative points in respect of cleaning we will discuss this with Rhondda and put actions in place to rectify with immediate effect.
Thank you again
