Our home

My home has completed in 2009 its first one hundred years of age - in the same year, howeverr, it has been completely renovated, from ceiling to floor, with brand new cooking area and bathrooms (one and half, plus a shower downstairs) - two bed rooms facing south to the beach and the sea (less than 100 meters away) - one dining and one sitting room with radio/hify and TV (no satellite, only Italian network), with adjoinig kitchen - one covered terrace. It is on the high floor of a two-stories building and, on the lower level, there is a small garden, entrance, shower, and staircase leading to the terrace and to the second and main entrance. No air conditioning (large ceiling fans in bedrooms) but plenty of ventilation and fresh air. Parking is not private, but it is right out of the house. From its complete renovation, it has been inhabitated for less than six months alltogether. It is, obviously, our second home.

Who we are

  1. My wife and I were born in Sardinia - that's why we are the owners of this house - but we have been living for the last 40 years in Padova, Italy. I am a just-retired Professor of Ophthalmolgy at the School of Medicine of Padova University - and we enjoy to travel as much, as often, and as long as we can...

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Our house has been among the firsts to be built on what later became Bosa Marina village, the beach of Bosa - which is laid a little more than one mile inland, on the river Temo. Bosa is a historic medioeval small town, dating back to one thousand years, with a proud castle on a hill overlooking everything, owned once by a very important old italian noble family, the Malaspinas (are you aware of a glacier in south-east Alaska named Malaspina Glacier ? - well, it was discovered by a member of the family...). Bosa is an achitectural jewel, little known so far out of Italy, but becoming in the last years more and more popular with lots of people from North Europe, which felt in love with the place (and are buying all the medioeval houses at vintage prices...). Don't think that, in Bosa, you would feel like in the Costa Smeralda, or similar playgrounds. The place is completely different: it is authentic Sardinia, thousands years old, with lots of prehistoric sites very close, WONDERFUL sea with marvelous beaches, "better-than-south seas" little coves, and fantastic rock formations. Food is a delight, local wines are well worth extensive search and investigation - night life is rather low-key but, if you really need it and look for it, the swinging Alghero is only 25 miles due north.
