This old style property straddles a street corner and would not look out of place in a typical British seaside resort. It has some comfortable lounge areas on the ground floor including a restaurant and bar with a tiny courtyard towards the rear. The pool appears to be in a perpendicular area which has to be reached by a stairway to roof level on to a short passage then back down again. However, the deck area, although overlooked by residences, is quiet and this property is popular with those looking to be close to the centre and beach.
The L-shaped 4-storey property occupies a corner location on the quiet cross road where other properties opposite are predominantly residential. Many of the metal balconied rooms face over the streets while the white walled ground floor has picture frame windows. The front entrance is angled onto the intersection with potted shrubs along the pavements both sides.
Property type: Hotel
The foyer has polished tiled flooring and high white walls with an arched stairway leading up to the upper levels. The long wooden reception counter is immediately in front of the entrance with wicker lounge chairs in front of the double-door entrance to the restaurant where lightweight bistro-style furnishing is featured. A passage leads to a larger lounge area where study wooden, cushioned chairs and a tv are situated to the side of a bright bar area.
A door opens on to a tiny parasol shaded courtyard with café-style table and chairs. The pool deck is reached by taking the 20 steps up from the courtyard to a short external corridor and a further 20 steps down again. The pool is surrounded by a 0.75m high protection wall and a tiled terrace with sunloungers and parasols. A neat hedge borders the rear of the grounds with residential blocks in the background.
Area Type: On a corner location one block behind the main coast road running between the resort and Fertilla and surrounded by residential blocks. 400 m to the sandy beach. Restaurants and bars in the immediate vicinity with the old town reached within a 40 minute stroll along the promenade passing the marina. Transfer time from Alghero Airport 20 minutes.
Nearest beach: 300m (Lido)
