“Decent enough place to stay, great pizza!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2011 via mobile

The place is quite hard to find but not too far from the airport. The rooms are decent enough but not fantastic. The sheets could have used a clean as they were somewhat dusty. Overall it's a basic place but has nothing particularly wrong with it.

Whatever you do, try the pizza- best I had in Sardegna!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2010

I treated my husband to a few days in Sardinia for his 40th birthday. After much searching I found La Fontana dei Desideri which appealed to me because it was off the beaten track and close to our chosen location of Alghero. It might not appeal to everyone as you definitely need a car as it is situated in the middle of the countryside, we loved it though!

We spent 4 days there and it was a great base. We were allocated a small apartment with main room, bathroom and kitchen. In hindsight, it might have been better had we been allocated an apartment with a separate bedroom as we had nowhere to sit in the evening when our daughter went to bed (she was 3 at the time)

The apartments are all situated round the fountain although I think there may have been some building work since then and possibly more apartments and there is now a restaurant on site. There are lots of things for small children to play on like slides, a playhouse etc. The pool is lovely and when we were there we had it to ourselves most of the time.

The apartments are well furnished and very clean with everything you need. Also provided are essentials for breakfast. The owners although they don't speak English are very helpful and with the aid of a phrase book and lots of hand movements you can understand each other!

The one thing I would warn against is the mosquitos! Take lots of repellant!

All in all a fab location, we had a lovely relaxing break there.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2009

Nice Agriturismo about 5 km from central Alghero and 10 km from Fertilia airport. About 10 newly built bungalows with pool in a quiet rural location. Great for small children with extensive fenced-in landscaped grounds, multiple playgrounds and a good-size pool. On-site restaurant offers good-value and tasty wood-oven pizza but nothing much else. Free fruit and vegetable garden at guests' disposal. Try to get a bungalow next to the pool or facing the lawn with the fountain. Definitely need a car to get around. Big choice of beautiful beaches within a 15-20 minute drive. Possibly a bit boring for people without children though.
