PRIVATE STRUCTURE (Lease only). Immersed in the colours and scents of Mediterranean scrub in the hamlet of Monticanaglia, a few kilometres from Arzachena, the Gallura town around which the Costa Smeralda arose, Villa Lu Muntiggiu is an example of architecture in perfect Costa Smeralda style, with soft lines in white granite, in harmony with the surrounding territory. Built in the late '90s, it stands on a slight slope surrounded by granite mountains and lush valleys covered in oaks, holm oaks and Mediterranean scrub. The main floor has openings to the outside, thanks to the large windows which, together with the light chrome plating of the furnishings, enhance the natural brightness. Welcoming the guests is an elegant living room, with ornamental fireplace, from where they can admire the wonderful park that surrounds the house, three air-conditioned double bedrooms, two bathrooms with shower and a beautiful kitchen with peninsula, directly connected to the outdoor living area with pergola, with a large wooden table and a splendid stone barbecue, perfect for spending pleasant evenings in good company, enjoying the local food and wine.

With its 12.000mq of fenced park, Villa Lu Muntiggiu is surrounded by the green of Mediterranean scrub, rich in native Sardinian plants; protagonists are the juniper trees, holm oaks and strawberry trees that create a true olfactory landscape in which the delicate aromas of the coast blend with the sparkling ones of the sea breeze, offering guests shady retreats. Along the entire perimeter of the house, wooden pergolas provide relaxing spots enriched by cosy sofas and armchairs where guests can rest in good company; the fully-equipped outdoor kitchen, with built-in barbecue, is perfect for outdoor lunches and dinners on hot summer days.

Location and distances

In north-eastern Sardinia, the area of Gallura is immersed in marvellous scenery, suspended in the emerald-coloured sea, across a coastline bordered by small fjords of granite rocks shaped by the mistral wind, alternating with stretches of sandy coast (here are the most beautiful beaches of the island, such as Cannigione, La Conia, Isuledda, Cala dei Ginepri, Le Saline, Spiaggia Mannena, Liscia Ruja, Liscia di Vacca, Spiaggia del Principe, Cala Grande). The inland panorama, characterised by mountain reliefs that do not reach dizzying heights but have represented a natural barrier for millennia (such as Monte Limbara and Monte Nieddu), is mainly made up of oak woods and shrubs typical of Mediterranean scrub (mastic, strawberry trees, myrtle and the very fragrant helichrysum). Difficult not to let yourself be carried away on a sensory journey capable of giving you moments of great pleasure in the splendid vineyards that give life to the prestigious wines that are ambassadors of Gallura in the world (Cantina Surrau, Cantina Capichera, Cantina Tibulas). Although the sea is the undisputed protagonist, the numerous remains of ancient civilisations make this the ideal place for those curious about learning the art and history of this land, which boasts beautiful archaeological, nuragic and pre-nuragic areas (such as the Nuragic complex "La Prisgiona" where the tombs of the giants of "Coddu Vecchiu" and the necropolis "Li Muri" are located). Gallura is also a paradise for enthusiasts of hiking and outdoor activities, it is in fact full of paths that wind through the most beautiful and evocative spots, allowing you to enjoy nature in a totally eco-sustainable way (excursions to the Island of Tavolara, a Protected Marine Area for the naturalistic value of the marine environments and for the level of conservation of Posidonia Oceanica, or to the Maddalena National Park, an archipelago of 60 islets, connected by a 600 m bridge to Caprera, the island where Giuseppe Garibaldi chose to live after his exile until his death and, now, the seat of the Musei Garibaldini).
