“Amazing bed and breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013

We stayed at the beginning of May at the Abaton and even though it was early in the season, had the most wonderful stay! This bed and breakfast is perfection! Firstly, the location is breathtaking.. perched at the top of a hill, the views to the coast are picture perfect, the smells of orange blossom and the feel of peace and tranquility. The attention to detail in the rooms is the best I have come across, I have stayed in some lovely hotels, but the small size here meant that everything was cared for with precision and personal care. Spotlessly clean, luxuriously furnished, breakfast lovingly sourced and presented. And most uniquely, the famous Aldo (!) shares local knowledge, and offers his hospitality.. It's was a great way for us to get a real feel for Sardinia in a short trip. I will try very hard to return and would highly recommend it.

Room Tip: Silver room was excellent!

We stayed at Relais Abaton for 3 nights at the end of October. We booked our stay there based on the excellent reviews from Tripadvisor and other forums and the least we can say is that Relais Abaton and its owner Aldo deserve these 5-star comments! First, Relais Abaton is ideally located on a moutain slope and therefore has a breathtaking view on the sea and is a very quiet place. You can not take your eyes of that view while having breakfast or having a rest on your deckchair just outside of your room. Speaking of rooms, there are three rooms. We got the "silver" one : perfectly fitted with trendy and design furniture. The bathroom is divided in two different parts : on the left of your bed there is a large two shower heads walk-in shower and, on the right-hand side, you find a bathroom with a large washbasin, a toilet and a bidet, plus a very spacious closet. Nothing is good enough for Aldo who has conceived and designed his guest rooms down to the smallest details. As if that were not enough, he has also anticipated every little thing that you might need : There are enough toiletries for a whole week (and these products are really good perhaps because they are organic). You will find a bag to use for your strolls to the beach, beach towels to put in it, an umbrella if the weather is not as good as you wanted it to be (remember we were there at the end of october!), books in different languages, a CD player and its CD's in case you forgot to bring your own music or books, ... He will book a table for you so that you do not have to worry about it, help you set up your sightseeing program, give you some pieces of advice, help you feel at home, ... The icing on the cake is breakfast : fantastic, awesome, gargantuan,... You will taste local products : super fresh mozzarella, juicy tomatoes, pecorino or other kinds of cheese, cold meats, delicious home-made lemon and orange marmelade and jams, super good freshly ground coffee, different fruit juices, tasteful pastries, fruit salad, yoghurt,... Though we did not have the best weather we got the very best stay ever thanks to Aldo and his magnificient place. Go there if you appreciate Italian design, want to enjoy a quiet and exclusive stay and wish to meet an extraordinary and caring personality.

The Relais Abaton is one of those rare places where everything is just perfect. Aldo Medea turned an idea into a reality and the difference is that you are welcomed as a friend, not just as a guest. The warm reception from Aldo makes you feel immediately at home and relaxed. The relais is beautifully situated on the side of a hill with breathtaking sea views, the three rooms are designed very tastefully and individually and Aldo has thought of everything that his guests may need when they’re away from home. Aldo is full of elan and always ready to give advice (such as a defective car rental) and has a profound knowledge of his homeland Sardinia. The morning begins with a breakfast of carefully-selected, delicious local products whilst enjoying the spectacular views. In the evening, Aldo presents you with a lovingly hand-drawn sketch which guides you to one of the local restaurants where he has reserved a table. We look back fondly on our many interesting, funny or serious conversations in the unique atmosphere of Relais Abaton. Truly a very special place and we'll be back for sure!

OK, this was just a fantastic holiday. Aldo is the most hospitable host. He took care of us, gave us company at breakfast, invited us after dinner and always took care we made our way to the best beaches and restaurants. He's perfect.
Also, the quality of the rooms, the interior design and the breakfast is very very good. To top it all: Abaton has a beautiful view over the sea. Would I go again? Yes. Each year.

We're not sure what to say that hasn't already been said here before. We took our honeymoon to Sorrento for our first week and then on to Villasimius for our second week.

We flew in to the North of Sardinia and drove 5hours (due to my bad directions) and were starting to regret our decision. It was late at night when we arrived in Villasimius and Aldo greeted us and showed us around what was to be our own luxury haven for the next 5 nights while booking us a table at a local pizzeria.

We woke up the next morning to the views well touted here on Trip Advisor and on the Abaton website... stunning. Aldo was the consumate host, advising us of local restaurants, making reservations, drawing us maps and generally bending over backwards to make our stay an amazing experience.

5 days of relaxation, swimming in the crystal waters passed and leaving was torturous, what's the phrase?...All good things must end. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend the experience Aldo has put together, so if you're looking for a small corner of luxury paradise... get booking!

Thank you Aldo!

The answer is no! Abaton is just perfect! Close your eyes and imagine the best panorama ever - this is the one you will see from your room in Abaton, and not only from the terrace, but from your bed as well! Close your eyes once again and imagine the best design ever - and once again Abaton will offer it to you! Every single thing has been thoroughly thought over, even those details you would have never imagined exist. Pieces of furniture designed by an architecture exclusively for this place, highest quality linen bed sheets, beach towels, a beach bag and a sun umbrella with the logo of this wonderful piece of paradise. Breakfast will be served on a terrace with a breathtaking view over the two bays, the products are extremely fresh and of the best quality you can find in Sardinia. But the thing that strikes you most is Aldo, the creator and the owner of Abaton, the person who will make you feel at home here and thanks to whom you will feel pampered during your stay. After all, when you go to Italy, it is the warmth of the Italian people you are longing for, isn't it?

Signor Aldo, thank you very much for the great weekend from Davide and Polina! See you soon, whether in Sardinia or somewhere else.

I would not hesitate in reccomending this B&B, the rooms are great, Aldo, the owner has gone to great lengths with the design and upkeep of these rooms. there is everything you need, including well stocked mini bar (at supermarket prices), surround sound CD player, enormous shower room and seperate bathroom. The terrrace and view are lovely.

Aldo was an excellent host, always assisting with dinner plans if required, breakfast that is put on is great too. The surrounding beaches are lovely, with many to choose from either very close or a small drive away.
