Traveling to Sardinia with Children?

Here at The Sardinia Villa Collection, we know that parents traveling with children of any age can often need a little helping hand to really be able to relax and unwind whilst on holiday. We aim to be the most family-friendly villa company on the island so we're on hand to help in any way we can.

We have a full range of equipment available to hire for your Sardinia villa holiday including:
  • Cots
  • Highchairs
  • Bumbos
  • Bottle sterilisers
  • Baby monitors
  • Child gates
  • Bed rails
  • Toys
  • Baby baths
  • Prams and buggies
  • Children's DVD's
  • An X-box with a selection of games
We can also stock your villa with baby food and diapers before your arrival to help avoid those pesky baggage allowances on some airlines and if your baby is used to a certain brand or product we'll do our best to locate it on island for you or help you to arrange to have supplies couriered over and ready in your villa on your arrival.
In most locations we also have trusted English speaking babysitters on hand to give you a little time to enjoy a long, leisurely dinner or aperitivo.
We know all of our villas intimately and are more than happy to answer all your questions on each property to ensure you book the right Sardinia holiday for you and your family.

Villa La Roccia, Costa Smeralda, Sardinia

For most people, Sardinia means the Costa Smeralda, the luxurious resort beloved by the world's glitterati.

Located on the North East coast of the island, the Costa Smeralda (or Emerald Coast) owes it's current status as one of the world's most exclusive holiday destinations to the Aga Khan who founded the resort in the 1960's.

As it's so fiercely popular with holiday makers the world over, most areas can get pretty busy in the summer months but the divine villa La Roccia, located just 9km from Porto Cervo is nestled in the rolling hills of Arzachena. The villa offers total privacy and tranquility, but just hop in the car and you can be right in the centre of all the action in minutes.

Offering seven double bedrooms (each one with a private ensuite bathroom), La Roccia is a luxurious private residence for up to fourteen guests, crammed with every possible creature comfort.

Take the decadent private spa area for example, located on-site underneath the main house where you can relax in the jacuzzi, steam room or sauna. Why not book one of our professional masseurs or beauticians to come in and pamper you and ensure you relax and unwind completely.

Guests who want to be able to enjoy that extra helping of pasta or glass of red wine totally guilt-free can make the most of the selection of gym equipment also available for use at the villa. Especially useful as we have some great chefs in the area who will be more than happy to pop in and rustle up a Sardinian feast fit for the Aga Khan himself for you to enjoy poolside as the sun sets over the neighboring hills.

The private swimming pool boast a water feature and divine countryside views and there's a fabulous covered alfresco lounge area poolside complete with sofas and double beds as well as plenty of sun loungers for all.

Lovers of Italian cuisine will adore the outdoor kitchen which is equipped with a barbeque, traditional wood-burning pizza oven, fridge, sink and ice maker and the adjoining covered dining area for candle-lit dinners using the very best Italian ingredients.

Inside the villa offers a wide screen TV with SKY and DVD and of course there's a wifi connection for those who just can't bear to be too cut off from the outside world.

The villa is decorated throughout in the style of Couelle, the godfather of Sardinian architecture and the fragrance from the traditional juniper branches incorporated into the structure gently perfumes the air.

The friendly caretaker and his wife live in a private house on-site and our full complimentary concierge service is just a phone call away so we're always on hand if you need anything at all from restaurant recommendations to boat tours, fridge stocking or just handy tips on the local area.

So why not treat yourself to a week of total relaxation at Villa La Roccia this summer and enjoy the very best Sardinia's Costa Smeralda has to offer.

Prices start from just 6,150€ per week
