The villa is of recent construction, built in 2006, in the most scenic location imaginable. It overlooks the medieval castle of Bosa, river valley, historic town centre, marina and sea. The property includes 1.2 hectares of land, the main villa, a small adjoining apartment, a restored stone shepherd’s lodge with a salon and pizza oven, stables with hay barn and a productive olive grove.
The villa has a welcoming sitting room with picture windows framing far-reaching views and sunsets over the castle and sea. A large fireplace, wooden floors and stonework give the property a homely atmosphere. The kitchen has a traditional cane ceiling and windows overlooking the river valley and fields. There are three bedrooms, one with a mezzanine floor and studio, two bathrooms and a staircase in the kitchen leading down to the lower floor. All appliances are below, with an interconnecting double garage, large work area and two rooms that can be completed and made into mini apartments, or integrated as extra living space in the main villa.
A large panoramic covered terrace creates an outdoor living and dining area that can be enjoyed most of the year round. The temperature rarely dips below 10°C in the winter, and the terrace is sheltered from wind by Mediterranean maquis, which also guarantees complete privacy.
Additional Accommodation and Land
A small, fully-contained apartment with separate entrance adjoins the outdoor living area, and a characteristic stone lodge and congenial meeting place built in 1800s adds charm to the property, as does a remarkable olive tree, growing from a rock. An area of the garden has been designed for a swimming pool. The villa has a water supply system providing 60,000 litres per day, which is ideal for a pool and irrigation system for the land.
Below the villa are stables and internal hay barn. A 200 sqm, high-ceilinged building, it can be kept as stables or converted into further living space. The olive grove has 80 trees and produces over 300 litres of oil per year.
Bosa is on the west coast of Sardinia, and easily reached from the airport of Alghero, just a forty minute drive along a spectacular coastal road. It is a two hour drive from the island’s capital, Cagliari. Bosa is a characteristic old fishing town, with one of Italy’s most celebrated medieval boroughs. It has the only navigable river in Sardinia running through it, and has maintained its charm whilst providing all services and amenities. Villa Piccolo Paradiso is ideal as a first or second home. It can be bought as a turnkey solution, fully furnished, according to requirements. The owners have a small mooring space on the river below, less than a five minute drive away, that can also be inherited by the buyer.
