Casa Orchidea is located in Isola Rossa, a picturesque former fishermen village on the North-Western coastline of Sardinia in the municipality of Trinità d’Agultu e Vignola. The area is known as Gallura, lies just next to Costa Smeralda and like the latter is famous for the crystal clear waters, hailed as unique in the Mediterranean Sea. The local coastal landscape is renowned for its peculiar red rocks and cliffs, that alternate with a number of small light brown sandy beaches.
Isola Rossa is named after a small red rocky island that faces the village and that every evening, during sunset, lightens up the skyline into a poetic bright red. It is often possible to see the coasts of Isola Asinara and Corsica over the horizon during sunsets.
Isola Rossa is situated around 30 km to the east of the medieval town of Castelsardo and 30 km to the west of the lively town of Santa Teresa di Gallura. The village is located halfway between the cities of Olbia and Sassari, therefore you can reach both Olbia and Alghero-Fertilia international airports (served by several flights from Europe and the UK) in 1 hour by car; in Olbia and Porto Torres (45 mins by car) there are also cruise harbours with multiple daily connection to mainland Italy. The village is connected by a private shuttle service provided by Hotel Resort Torreruja and local bus lines during the summer season.
Casa Orchidea occupies a part of a one storey house painted in a warm, mediterranean red tint. The building is located on a hill in a very quiet spot and is part of the Hotel Resort Torreruja (4 star superior) complex, which has an area for privately owned independent homes.
The owners are granted free access to services provided by Hotel Torreruja, as the pool that overlooks the rocky promontory with the view of the Aragonese Tower, dating back to the XVI century.
It is also possible to use the hotel’s SPA, dine at the restaurant or drink at the bars using a personal electronic cash card provided by the hotel reception.
The whole complex benefits from 24h surveillance, maintenance and gardening service. Housekeeping service offered by the hotel is also possible for a fee.
Casa Orchidea was built in 2008 and consists of three main rooms, one big external patio and one internal service patio that functions as a utility room, both covered with a waterproof roof made of natural bamboo canes. The open space living room includes a fitted kitchen, with the large entrance glass scrolling door leading to the external patio that offers a 180° seaview. The large bedroom has a king size bed, built-in wardrobe and access to the back covered patio, with laundry, washing machine, big storage for various material and external shower.
The small bedroom, ideal for kids or guests, has two bunk beds and a wardrobe and is also giving direct access to the back patio.
The bathroom, decorated with warm terracotta tiles, has a large modern walk-in shower with glass door, two sinks and a bidet.
The property includes two private covered parking spots for your car.
The view from the external patio is breathtaking, given that the house is located on the upper part of the hill, but still only about 300 metres from the sea; the temperature in this particular position is never too hot, always very pleasant thanks to the delicate, constant wind that blows from the open sea. Several beaches are accessible by foot, walking just around 10 mins.
The village town of Isola Rossa is easily reachable by foot and offers many services: supermarkets, cafes, restaurants, pizzerias, bars, ice cream shop, emergency doctor, pharmacy, local food market, various shops a tourist board and the exclusive Marina port for private yachts and sailboats.
Many activities are possible on site: excursions by boat, snorkeling in the aquamarine waters, windsurfing in the nearby bay of La Marinedda and walking through the beautiful hills by the sea.
Isola Rossa is a hidden gem, a quiet place to spend your holidays and unwind, perfect for families and for everyone who loves to relax in the unspoiled nature without giving up the comfort of basic services and amenities which are available in town.
