This was our first stop on our recent mini tour of Sardinia. So handy for the airport at Cagliari, we were there in just over half an hour. This big house is situated in a quiet residential area of Chia, backing onto a hillside and provides lovely views of the valley towards the sea and the "nuraghe" on the hill opposite. Breakfast is served on a delightful terrace on the third floor.
Sabrina and her family gave us a wonderful welcome. We were given coffee and cakes before we had even unpacked. Sabrina does not speak much English, but luckily my wife speaks some Italian, we were given a choice of rooms, we chose one on the front of the house next to the family quarters. Good size bed, plenty of hanging space and a super shower/bathroom. The room was complete with a mini fridge, TV and air-conditioning. There was also a small radiator, I suppose it must get cold at some time of the year in Sardinnia.
Breakfast was wonderful. Cereal, meat and cheese but best of all savoury pies and cakes cooked by Sabrina herself. If you are lucky you might get to try Sabrina's artichoke and prosciutto flan! Why didn't I ask for the recipe!
The area has some wonderful beaches and places of interest, Sabrina has all the information you need on where to go and where to eat.
Lovely house, lovely, friendly owners. Definitely recommend this B&B to anyone.
