This is a privately owned apartment, Luca - emailed us within a few days of making the booking and was so helpful. He advised us the best way to reach the apartment whilst also having the chance to tour around the beautiful island of Sardinia was to hire a car and we are so glad we took his advice, as it gave us so much freedom to explore. He gave us clear directions to the apartment and we had no problem in getting there (local sat nav also recommended!). It's about 90 mins drive from Olbia airport along some wonderful mountain roads, very picturesque in the daylight! We were travelling late in the evening but, even so, the drive was no problem as roads are good with excellent road signs, all very clear even in the dark. We phoned Luca when we were half an hour away, and he arranged for Vittoria, the lady who looks after the apartment, to meet us there, show us around and hand over the key. She was lovely and, although we don't speak much Italian and she spoke no English, we managed to communicate very easily! The second floor apartment was spacious & spotlessly clean with every possible appliance and facility you might need for a holiday, even a washing machine! An excellent touch was that a bottle of local Sardinian red wine ,water and bread had been left for us plus a tray of Sardinian pastries, very thoughtful particularly as it was late and there was no chance of being able to purchase provisions until the next day. The local area of La Muddiza is pleasant and friendly, we regularly visited one of the local bars just opposite the church and was made very welcome. Most people speak little or no English but we had a few words of Italian and coped very well. You do need a car here though, there is 2 bars a supermarket, fruit shop and a fantastic agriturismo (I think called Caraibbu) in walking distance, but with the car we were able to visit Valledoria, Castelsardo, the Costa Paradiso and various other towns and beaches. The weather was superb, we had a brilliant week & definitely want to return!
