Villa Lavandula is a historic villa of great value and elegance designed by the famous architect Luigi Vietti, creator of the Hotel Cervo Hotel Pitrizza, and inserted into one of the most exclusive residential contexts of the Costa Smeralda, with stunning views of the sea of Romazzino. Villa Lavandula is a few minutes from the beautiful beaches of Porto Cervo and only a 10-minute drive from the center.
The architecture of the property is among the most original and authentic of the Costa Smeralda: it is surrounded by a beautiful garden, opening onto the salt-water pool, which offers breathtaking panoramic views of the sea and the island of Mortorio. The living area is bright and reflects the colors of the exterior while communicating with a wide and comfortable kitchen with access to a delightful terrace ideal for outdoor breakfasts. On the same level, two double bedrooms served by their own bathrooms, whose coatings are the original hand-painted cerasarda. Upstairs, the master overlooks the sea and has got access to a lovely terrace. All rooms are equipped with A/C and heating and TV LCD SAT/DTT.
With the recent approval of a new upgrade project the existing property will be equipped with a new pool as well as with entertainment facilities and services.
Porto Cervo (Poltu Celvu in gallura, Portu Chervu in sardinian) is part of the municipality of Arzachena, in the province of Olbia-Tempio in north-eastern sardinia, which is an historical and geographical region known as Gallura.
It is the main center of the Costa Smeralda and has a resident population of less than 200 inhabitants.
It is a very well know holiday resort and due its name to the shape of the natural harbor, which resembles a deer and dominates the headland.
The center is built on a mezzanine floor over the harbor, with its famous square, shops, boutiques, while restaurants, hotels, clubs and villas all around are scattered on the surrounding hills.
The Old Harbour dates back to the sixties, when Prince Karim Aga Khan IV, fascinated by the beauty of this stretch of coast, decided to buy the poor lands of this part of Gallura, and together with the greatest architects of the time, including Luigi Vietti, to give life to the élite international tourism paradise as it is known today.
In 1967 the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda was founded and in the eighties, the building of the new port, much more spacious and equipped than the old one, began.
