Domaine de Murtoli is like nowhere we've stayed before. The drive around the coastal road towards the estate is spectacular, giving a taste of what lies ahead. Beyond the impressive wrought iron gates the long bumpy driveway would please any 4WD enthusiast. Our young sons loved it. The estate is huge and naturally beautiful. Words don't do it justice. Just amazing. Pristine private beach, rugged terrain, rocky hills, wildlife, and old fort in the distance, views to die for.
Our villa, L'Arba Barona was rustic from the exterior but perfectly furnished and fitted out on the inside. I had the French country kitchen of my dreams - fully equipped and charming. The furnishings and decor are perfectly rustic yet luxurious. The bathroom supplies were beautiful L’Occitane products and were in generous supply.
The beach was superb. The facilities are all so understated yet so magnificent and beautiful. The thatched roof shade structures were well placed apart and provided a beautiful place to while away the day. The restaurant was great. We ate so many beautiful dishes. The spaghetti with clams was the highlight – our five year old son devoured it every night. The Fleur de Murtoli rosé was a highlight. We cannot find a rosé as perfect.
It is a dream of mine to return one day though from Australia it is a huge effort but well worth it.
