Are you interested in a story about stays with last-minute availability? Perfect for family travel or quick getaways with friends, see below for three Sardinia villas available to rent right now:
- Villa Rafael:
- Carved into the rugged hillside of Punta Sardegna, Villa Rafael is nestled within the exclusive residential complex of Porto Rafael. Surrounded by lush gardens and resting on the north side of Costa Smeralda, the villa features a glittering pool that overlooks the ocean, gorgeous outdoor spaces to lounge throughout the day, and a fireplace for families to gather around at night. Even swim laps in the glistening pool, indulge in a night of decadence in the massage room and sauna, or take a trip down to the lovely beach and Porto Rafael town. The interiors of Villa Rafael make extensive use of natural materials, as if the home were part of the original land; rough sculpted wood, stone walls, and wicker furniture all contribute to a unique atmosphere that feels almost timeless. Available from July 9th-July 21st from $3,818 per night.
- Villa Stella:
Villa Stella is in a fantastic location near the beach with wonderful views of the lush green terrain rolling down to the glistening blue sea. With space for 10 people, the interiors are spacious and open, eschewing busy patterned textiles and flamboyant displays of extravagance in favor of pure, basic comfort; soft contemporary furnishings, varnished wooden walls and floors, and circular informal seating. Highlights include the gorgeous pool overlooking the lush greenery and the sprawling manicured lawn. Available for the entire month of August from $2,413 per night.
- Villa Gemelli:
- Villa Gemelli is located in a private gated enclave of villas in lovely Cannigione and offers direct access to the gorgeous beach. It is peaceful, secluded, and surrounded by impeccably managed grounds with stunning views across the landscape and down to the sparkling Mediterranean. Come evening, cook up a delicious dinner in the sleek white kitchen, or grill up a casual barbecued feast for the whole family, then sit down at the sun-kissed round table for a sociable evening meal. As the stars emerge, head to the hot tub for a serene moonlit soak. Of the five bedrooms at Villa Gemelli, one features bunk beds, making this home-away-from-home especially well-suited to families with younger children. Availability from August 14 through August 28 from $4,887 per night.
