“even better than last time”
Reviewed June 8, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

This is the second time my family and I have stayed at La Maison Du Monde and although I thought it would not be possible we enjoyed our stay even more.
The hosts are great and really let you feel that the house is 'yours' for the week. We used the facilities in the house more- the pizza oven,outdoor dinning, large garden, volley ball court, outdoor shower, swimming pool. ... the list goes on.
It's the perfect place to relax away from the distractions of a busy life and reconnect with loved ones.
Also great value, a room in a hotel would be more expensive, if your going to stay in Alghero stay at La Maison Du Monde ,you can thank me after

“Out of the ordinary”

We really enjoyed our stay at La Maison du Monde. This is not your typical summer rental apartment as it is located in an agricultural area. The house is very cosy, and has a "shabby chic" (I think it's called) style. Here you can enjoy your very own garden, with olive trees, lemon trees and other fruit trees.

There is even a hammock, where you can relax with your favorite book under the shadows of an olive tree. Or you can take a swim or just cool down in the private pool. The pool is very suited for children, as it is not very deep (about 1 meter). It is perfect for the little ones learning to swim...there is also an outside stove.

The house is located just a few kilometers outside of Alghero. You need a car, because walking is not an option, especially during the evening/night.

The owners of La Maison du Monde are very friendly! They will help you with any problem you might have and give you tips on where to eat, what to see in the area and so on.

This is our third time visiting Sardinia, and again we had a fantastic time. The beaches are truly beautiful, shallow with crystal clear water. Alghero is a nice little town and we especially recommend the old town, where you will find lots of restaurants and little shops. I could probably just go on and on....

“Perfect place to stay to enjoy Alghero town and relax in the countryside”

Just returned from La Maison Du Monde and am torn as to whether to share this perfect location with other people. Stayed for 10 nights in the cottage and fell in love with both the house and the the large garden and pool. The kids really enjoyed the garden with the swings, hammock and pool and my wife and I loved the veranda and the outdoor BBQ.
The hosts were friendly and offered advice on where to visit and locations of good beaches. Alghero was only 5 minutes drive and a great town to hang out at night with the kids, friendly and not too commercial.
We will definitely return to enjoy another stay at La Maison Du Monde.

“Quiet, tranquil and at one with nature.”
Reviewed August 23, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Good location for visiting Alghero with its shallow beach called Lido, and some beautiful beaches dotted around: Speranza and La Bombarde were some that we enjoyed.
Wonderful house for eating outdoors, pretty and idyllic.
Lots of grounds for little ones to explore.
Safe and secure.
Take mosquito plug ins, there are some about in summer.
Inside could do with updating but provides all basic needs. No oven, but microwave and hob.
Wonderful outside shower, great way to cool down on a hot day.
Careful where you park in main car park in Alghero, stay in white lines and check duration. We got a ticket.
Great to meet such friendly and welcoming hosts. Thank you, we enjoyed our stay so much.

“Great holiday home - in peaceful countryside yet close to Alghero”
Reviewed May 31, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

5 minutes to Alghero and the nearest supermarket, 7 or 8 minutes to the port and old town, yet you are staying in the countryside, in an old farmhouse set in several acres of olive groves and vineyards. Lovely garden and shaded patio with its own table and chairs for those hot summer days. Rustic rather than luxurious (it is an old farmhouse after all) but comfortable, spacious and very relaxing. TV only gets Italian channels so, if you must watch the box, bring your own DVDs but there is free wi-fi if you can't bear to be disconnected from the 21st century.

The owner was very friendly, speaks good English and was helpful in advising on places to go and things to do. The national park, north of Alghero, is particularly good for walks through the forest and along the coast. There is lots of variety in the area - Alghero and the old town, beaches, beautiful coastline, lovely country in the inland hills, larger towns such as Sassari and a number of prehistoric sites. Or just sit in the garden, drinking the owner's excellent wine and cooking your own Italian-style dinner!
