About this listing

The house is a 300 years old building that has been just recently completely restored. It is located in the historical center of Bosa. It is about 70 square meters on 4 levels, can accommodate for 4 people and to 2 bikes are available free of charge!

The space

The entrance, a little storage space and the bathroom (with sink, shower, toilet, washing machine and water tank) are located on ground floor. On the first floor there is the main bedroom, with 1 double bed or 2 single beds. On the second floor there is the living room, which can be set as a second bedroom, with a double bed (couch-bed). On the top floor there is the kitchen, the dining area and a small roof terrace, to enjoy open air meals. Towels and linens are provided.
The house follows the typical typology of the area, with a small footprint and developed in height. Built in local stones, its thick walls guarantee a very good thermal insulation, allowing a cool temperature in the summer while retaining the heat inside during the mild winter. Its vertical extension makes it work as a "chimney": in summer, cool air is taken in at ground floor level, from the shadow of square, and warmer air is outlet from the windows on top floor. This process of natural ventilation keeps a comfortable environment, a pleasant temperature and a dry climate. Simple, sustainable features were conceived in the ancient times, and still work perfectly!
Just in front of the house, few meters from the entrance, there is the best kitchen in town, the Ristorante S.Ignazio. Here you can taste some of the most extraordinary local recipes with Pasta Fresca, local cheese, fresh fish, and much more.
Direct low-fare flights connect the airport of Alghero (AHO - at about 50km from Bosa) to several cities in Italy and Europe.

Guest access

The guests have full access to all facilities in the house, of course: everybody should simply feel home, here.
We provide clean sheets/linen and towels upon arrival, and we will make sure to arrange intermediate cleaning and washing in case of long staying. We should agree on details before your booking on your preferences.
According to your needs, you can decide to book the full house or just one room. Most of the times, we only get one booking at time, so in case you only need one room, the other one will stay vacant, as I am rarely in Bosa (unfortuntely). In case the other room is occupied, you will be notified immeditately.
We are always happy to offer you discounts for reservations longer than a week.

Interaction with guests

I try my best to reply to all inquiries within few hours!

Other things to note

Spectacular beaches are easily reachable from the house. The closest beach is Bosa Marina, at 2,5 kilometers. Just a bit farther, you can visit the amazing landscape of S'Abba Druche and Cumpoltittu beaches (my favourites): you can bike for about 6 chilometers towards North (on the road Bosa-Alghero, which is already quite spectacular in itself), and then have a littel walk in the wild nature down to the beaches.

House Rules
No smoking
Not suitable for pets
No parties or events

In general, the only rule is to leave the house the way you would like to find it. In my brief experience as a host, I noticed that most of the times this is actually what happens, and it is also what makes the Airbnb Community such a nice bunch. You will always find the house clean upon your arrival, and we will take care of cleaning up after your departure, to prepare it for the next guests: still, we are really keen in making you feel home. We try to spend as much time as possible in the house ourselves as well, and we like to think of it as a place of which we can all enjoy, as our home.
No smoking is allowed indoor. The bikes are equipped with battery lights and locks, and in the entrance there is a small kit to fix tires in case you get a flat: please be so kind as to make sure the next guests will be able to enjoy the same!

Thank you very much for our nice stay in Bosa. The communication as well as this little, well-equipped house was just perfect and we can really recommend it!

The house is really nice and the location is excellent: quiet in the middle of a beautiful Bosa. The house is bigger that it seems from the description and has everything you need for a perfect holiday. Communication was easy and smooth, Andrea was not there, however he created a (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) group, including Roberta, who waited for us at the arrival. Both were very nice and helpful. We rally enjoyed the stay in Bosa and the norther beaches, suggested by the host. I suppose we were very lucky since it was sunny all the time and the water still warm enough for a perfect swim.

Andrea's home is gorgeous and perfectly located. We had trouble with our flight and Roberta was very available to welcome us into the home. We ended up spending most of our time on the top floor where the kitchen is. It's airy and the roof deck is bright. I was working most of the time and the internet was great (~10MBPS). The kitchen is well equipped and grocery stores, butchers, etc are all quite close by. When we arrived, there was some issue with a leak in the house and some mildew on the first two floors. Andrea was easy to communicate with and refunded us a day of our stay for our troubles. I thought that was more than fair. Would love to come back. Thank you, Andrea!

We had an amazing time in the beautiful house. Roberta showed us everything when we arrived and the house was very clean. We felt completely at home and enjoyed the location in the middle of the centro storico very much. We also found the food truck on the other side of the river and enjoyed da giovanni's pizza slices. All in all, a perfect three days. Thank you.

Amazing! Bosa is by far the most atmospheric town of Sardegna. Its colourfull, has great views and not packed with tourists. You see the normal life around you. Its easy to feel at home; everyone is very friendly. There are some typical Italian bars for cappuccino, spritz and wine where its easy to have a chat with the locals. The supermarket is across the bridge and the simple bikes will take you to the beaches near by. Across the river (at the second bridge) was also a very nice Italian foodtruck! Go and find him! The house is very complete and clean. The roofkitchen is something you 'want at home'. We had great selfmade meals over here. In august the temperatures in Bosa dont get crazy, especially in this old building. Andrea is a very nice host and easy to communicate with. An absolute airbnb highlight!

Andrea User ProfileAndrea is a superhost.

I am an architect and I am passionate about good architecture and ancient urban settlements. I fell in love with Bosa while making my final thesis project at the university: the design proposal was a minimal intervention to re-qualify the Temo river's banks in the old town. Few years later, I managed to acquire this old house right in the medieval city center, where I try to be every time I free myself from work.
Due to my work, I travel quite a bit, and lately I find myself eager to learn much more about different traditions and costumes (especially from Asia and the Far East... China, India and Vietnam, and more recently from Central America and the Caribbeans). I find it impressive how many things we can learn from each other cultures, and how much can be adapted and adjusted among different locations. I like this positive side of globalization, where intelligence becomes global and local traditions acquire value.
I am currently committed in a research aiming to drastically lower the construction cost (price per square meter) of social housing through implementation of sustainable practices: everybody should have the right to a comfortable home, in a cleaner world.
I am based in Rotterdam, The Netherlands, but I often engage in projects which bring me in beautiful places: I am currently living in Phoenix, Arizona.
