Sat inside Tovolara’s marine park, Capo Coda Cavallo, Villa Maratua lies on an elevated piece of land boasting glistening, panoramic blue views of the marine area, bays and surrounding leafy islands.
Tastefully fitting into the local landscape, this gated villa is somewhat of a masterpiece, tying modern and traditional elements together to create a stunning vision. Intricate tiling crawls up the driveway leading to a set of steps and a water feature that guide you towards the entrance.
Spreading over two floors, with inside and outside interconnecting staircases, the lower level houses three bedrooms, each with their own en-suites, plus a generous living and dining area with a kitchenette, a cosy open granite fireplace that was carved by a stonemason on site and a veranda that unlocks vivid widespread views of the marine park.
There’s also a spare room with its private entrance and a bath, perfect for relaxing evenings away from the rest of the group or family. Practical as well as luxurious, the laundry room is also located on this floor too, complete with ironing equipment.
Upstairs, you’ll be met with a large living area that’s connected to a second dining room and kitchen, each leading out to a terrace, ideal for entertaining small and large groups inside a homely yet quintessentially Italian setting.
There are further two bedrooms with en-suites upstairs, with one leading onto covered veranda area, offering gorgeous far-flung views and a lovely private setting to enjoy the weather and unwind in. Air conditioning keeps the entirety of the top floor cool throughout the summer months.
With refined fixtures and fittings throughout, each floor boasts Sardinian marble sourced from Orsei, a material loved by the famous local architects of Costa Smeralda, while the ceilings each feature detailed carvings and arches, each of them different, adding to the individualistic character of the villa. The stone walls have been finished in natural local Sardinian stone for an authentic feel.
An outside staircase will take you up to the most stand-out feature of this property - a 40m2 roof terrace that gives 360-degree views of the surrounding plant life, architecture, land and shining blue waters, making you feel as if you're on top of the whole of Sardinia.
Surrounding the entire villa, a beautifully kept garden of rocks and macchia plants brings this slice of Sardinia to life, while the covered barbecue area sits in between two giant rocks, complete with a pizza oven, steel and cast iron grills and a striking sink that has been sunk into a rock as a design feature.
There’s even an outdoor shower that’s been built into a rock, allowing you to take warm showers in the sun in the midst of foliage and plant life. This villa was built with indoor and outdoor group entertaining at its core and has left nothing to be desired, the 13m kidney-shaped swimming pool with a springboard being the cherry on top of the cake!

San Teodoro’s Bluebar pizza restaurant is a must visit for those who want a coastal taste of Italian cuisine, with an enviable cocktail menu that will set the scene for evenings watching the landscape around you change as the day pulls into night.
The islands of Tavolara, Molara, Capo Coda Cavallo can all be spotted from the roof terrace, as well as the Lu Impostu and Brandinchi bays, plus the other worldly mountains of Gallura, each of which is worth a visit if you’re the exploring kind. The marine parks launching boat ramp serves as an ideal starting and finishing point for a boat trip to the nearby islands, while the beaches of Porto Taverna, Cala Brandinchi and La Cinta are only a short car ride away.
Olbia is home to Museum Civitatense Basilica di San Simplicio, a historic church with traditional architecture that’s worth exploring for a feel of old town Olbia, with the blissful Costa Corallina Beach nearby, the perfect beach destination for sunbathing the day away, known for being more quiet than other local beaches for those wanting to melt the stresses of back home and their flight away.
Golf buffs won’t want to miss a chance to let loose on the nearby 9-hole course on the Puntaldia Peninsula and the famous 18-hole Costa Smeralda course, which is 40km away from the villa.

About an hour’s drive away, the village of San Pantaleo is the great option for foodie days out with the kids, spent sampling local cuisine, marveling at the quaint village architecture and exploring the colourful San Pantaleo Market, set on a hillside with a huge variety on offer, especially if you have a penchant for cheese!
The local area of Olbia is home to more than one site of ancient ruins which are fun to roam around as well as educational, plus Parco Fausto Noce, a huge park filled with greenery and large water features, great for wholesome family days out with more than enough room for the kids to run, jump and explore.
