Description from manager

Situated on the summit of a promontory which forms part of Porto Rafael, a small piece of paradise and an exclusive resort, Luna faces the splendid sea of Sardinia dominating it from a distance.

The property is immersed in greenery, interrupted by rocks of granite in extravagant forms reminiscent of the moon (Luna signifies moon). The sea is visible from many parts of the villa and various areas of the garden offer particularly enchanting glimpses of it.

Surrounded by 1 hectare of land, the villa offers the possibility to enjoy large external spaces of a total of 300 sqm of terraced areas, including the patio furnished with a large table for 12 people, with sofas, wooden sun beds and stone seating areas. The patio is connected to an external kitchen with sink, cooker and stone barbecue. Luna is equipped with a pleasant living room designed with rounded forms, and large picture windows that illuminate the interior and create a continuation to the exterior.

Three of the five bedrooms have French windows leading to the garden. One of the bedrooms is only accessible from the exterior and is situated next to the swimming pool.

The swimming pool is positioned in front of the house, just 3 metres away.

The living areas are enriched with objects on a seaside theme of evocative memories, making the rooms more like a villa lived in all year round rather than a holiday home.

Designed in the early 1960’s by a Spanish nobleman, the Count Rafael Neville from which it takes its name, Porto Rafael rises at 45km/28miles from the airport of Olbia, facing the Maddalena archipelago.

It is a small district set in between the rocks, there are no hotels or large complexes in Porto Raphael, just exclusive private villas and houses immersed in 150 hectares of Mediterranean vegetation, camouflaged between the rocks.

A location, Porto Rafael, which is discreet but not isolated where peace is guaranteed, relaxing in front of the sea sitting at a coffee bar in one of the two small squares of Porto Rafael.

The first square, with a tobacconist, a small supermarket stocked with local delicacies, a shop selling books and Italian and foreign newspapers is the first stop for a mid-morning coffee.

The second small square on the sea front is only open to pedestrians, with lots of open air bars for snacks and aperitifs, and in the evening the possibility to stay and listen to music; there are also various exclusive boutiques and two prestigious jewellers.

For lovers of good food there are 3 restaurants; for sport lovers, a tennis and yachting club with diving centre and sailing centre. Security, with a doctor on call and permanent private security guards is guaranteed by the efficient consortium, which also organises an interesting calendar of social and cultural events in the town squares.

The geographical position of Porto Rafael allows access by a short trip, also possible by simple dinghy, to all the islands of the Maddalena archipelago, a strictly protected marine park.

Corsica and its islands are just a few miles away and can also be reached by car and ferry departing from Palau and S.Teresa di Gallura. The Smeralda coast with its famous Pevero Golf Club, Porto Cervo and Porto Rotondo are just 25 minutes by car from Porto Rafael.

The archaeological sites and areas of natural interest are close by. The nearby town of Palau is a lively place with shops, restaurants and a colourful weekly market.
