This review is a bit late but I still need to share our experience. We arrived quite late and did not realise Renato was not normally on-site. We had been held up for hours by the rental car company. As we got near to the B&B our car stopped completely, blocking a small street. We don't speak Italian and didn't know what to do. I called Roberto, who was initially a bit upset we were so late, but as soon as he understood our problem he rushed around to help. He called the company for us, and told them it was not right that we should have to pay for towing (as they wanted). He also dealt with the tow truck driver, and asked the restaurant over the road to stay open as we hadn't eaten all day. He was completely our saviour! As others have mentioned, he was also great at telling ius where to go and how to negotiate Cagliari. We were on the top level (no lifts - we knew this in advance). We are well into our sixties and Renato insisted on carrying both bags up and down again when we left. He could not have been more helpful.
The apartment is brilliantly located for a view for both sides (top level), shops and restaurants. It is spacious and comfortable. A cotton blanket would have been good as when we were there the duvet was too hot. As others have mentioned, the breakfast was basic, and we mainly bought our own stuff. Some fresh bread and eggs would have been appreciated.
You do need to be aware of the stairs. They are quite steep and after long days out can seem a bit daunting, but we saw it as extra exercise to wear off the wonderful pasta and wine! If you have a car, you can park in a great, and inexpensive parking station that Renato also told us about. It is an easy walk away. All up, the apartment, and Cagliari were wonderful for us (except the horrible car company- there will be another review about this). Thanks again Renato for saving us!
