Il profumo del mare
Ranked #5 of 258 Cagliari B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 24, 2013

We stayed 4 nights at this B&B and we enjoyed every minute.
Antonio gave us a warm welcome and a lot of adresses to eat a good Sardinian meal!
We also made 2 trips with Alessandro, a friend of Antonio, who takes you to the most beautiful beaches in the south of Sardinia. A highlight of our vacations!
The bus to Cagliari is in front of the B&B, a supermarket 500 meters away and for the breakfast you can choose between 2 different places at the sea.
Thanks a lot Antonio for everything!
If we come back to Sardinia, we will definitely stay at your place again.

We had a nice stay in Antonio's B&B. Antonio didn't seem at all like a business men but rather nearly like a friend.
The location was good for us as we preferred to stay outside the centre, close to the see. The place is however conveniently connected with the city centre via a number of buses that are running frequently.
Overall our stay was smooth and very pleasant.
Do not miss a car trip to some amazing beaches in Sardinia with Antonio's fantastic friend Alexandro.

I'm really happy that I came to Il Profumo del Mare. Me and my boyfriend spent four wonderfull days, all due to Antonio. We felt completely at home, he is very nice and welcoming and takes the trouble to talk with you. And its clear that he really likes his job. I lost my lenses and he offered to get me new ones. He even made us a discount. Also we let us take the bikes for free to go to the lagoon and watch the flamingoes. He recommended us the trip around the coast with Maurizio, a really nice and interesting man.

I have to thank both of them for making my trip perfect. And i will return for sure.

Arrivederci!

Ana.

Antonio is a great host! He was very friendly and really made an effort to make sure we had everything we needed. Whether its booking a restaurant, giving directions to the city and, and in our case, making us breakfast. The building where the b&b is located in is not amazing but the part where you stay as a guest is clean and nicely decorated. We have no complaints about our room. It was big enough for two people and it was clean. Very glad we stayed in this b&b!
Another tip: take the tour with Allesandro! He shows you things (beaches and monuments) you would never see on your own. And he is great company!

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the seaside. Great view!

We had a nice stay in Cagliari at this place!
Antonio is a perfect host.
The rooms are nice and there's a sunny private balcony with nice view.
Unfortunately we were there a little bit off the season and the sea was still cold ( its only 50 meters away).
Around the corner the Paninis are quite good and the little jumble sale is a trip to the 90s.
We had a car but the buses to the city (10min trip) leave every 15 minutes.
A supermarket with average pricesn is around the corner.
The quarter of Poetto is a bit ragged but has not lost much of its charming nature.

Room Tip: If the breakfast (cappucino and sweet pastry) is too small for you, upgrade it or more economically...

Antonio was a fantastic host - so helpful and really went above and beyond the call of duty, so to speak. breakfast across the street at Il Lido is lovely and the ocean view from our room was outstanding. just a short hop from Cagliari on the bus and right on a great stretch for biking and walking. will definitely stay there again when I return to Cagliari.

We found this B&B on the Net, and we chose this one because of the great pictures and its great location (closed to the beach)...
When we arrived, we were received by Antonio (the owner), who showed us our room (very clean, nice furnitures, tall bed, beautiful and very clean bathroom exactly like on the pictures).
Immediately, Antonio informed us about all the nice places to go (and the one not to go...). He gave us a map that he had prepared with many comments written on (the good restaurants, bars, bus stop, interesting parts of the city to visit). He told us many times in case of problem we could phone him. He was very helpful, very sympathetic and always smiling.
We had our breakfast on the beach, and enjoyed the hot water during all the week. The beach is nice, and cleaned everyday.
To summarize, very good holidays due to a great B&B and his fantastic owner (extremely sympathetic and very professional !!). Antonio, thanks you very much for your help and for the wine and sweets that you offered us.
First time in Sardenia for us, and thanks to Antonio it won't be the last...
Promised, Antonio we will come back !! Thanks again ;-) Marion and Brian
