We spent a week at Villa Mercedes and I can absolutely recommend this BnB wholeheartedly. This is the jewel of Sardinia!!
The owners Mercedes and Paolo are incredible! They are helpful, warm and friendly and really set the bar high on the hospitality scale. I have never encountered such lovely and professional hosts!
They gave us recommendations for sightseeing, beaches and a great list of restaurants to visit in the area. We go to Sardinia almost every year and love it there, but I can honestly say that this was the best time we ever had there. Our trip would never have been so special had it not been for Mercedes and Paolo.
Our room was amazing (eactly like on the pictures)! It was huge and impecibly decorated and with an ensuite bathroom. Temperatures outside were in the mid 30's but it was nice and cool inside. We even had our own little private terrace with a great view of the bay that we enjoyed a glass of wine from in the evenings.
In the mornings we would wake up to the delicous smell of brioche baking in the kitchen oven downstairs, which was enough to make us run down to the breakfast terrace. Breakfast is served on a beautiful and open terrace with wonderful sea views. Mercedes makes the best coffee and serves an incredible breakfast feast with local cheese delicacies, a delicous variety of home made jams, seasonal fruits and home made and regional baked goods. It was so good that I couldn't stop eating because I had to try everything and then ate so much that I needed a siesta after breakfast.
We were very lucky and also got to experience even more of Mercedes' cooking, as one evening they invited us to a beautiful dinner in their garden. Picture sitting outside underneath an old mandarin tree, surrounded by fire torches, candles everywhere, enjoying great wine, incredible food and great company. I'm doing a poor job of describing it: it was very special.
The bnb is located a 7 minute walk away from a beautiful beach and a quick 10 minute drive away from La Caletta. It is super quiet and relaxing, everything works perfectly (like WIFI), the house is absolutely stunning and you can see that they put a lot of love and thought into it.
We left feeling relaxed and happy, but also sad to leave our wonderful new friends Mercedes and Paolo.
The only consolation is: we are going back again next year!
