“Just gorgeous”
Reviewed 5 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We loved everything about our stay at La Maison du Monde. Michele and Lucia were extremely helpful providing us with a fantastic summary of the local area (beaches, restaurants, boat trips etc). The villa was very pretty and relaxing - a traditional shabby chic interior in a beautiful setting. Everything was very clean and we had everything we needed. Everyone loved the pool - 6 year old and teenagers! It is only small but perfect to cool down in and for the kids to play. The local area is beautiful and everything is close by (in a car), beaches stunning, food delicious. If you're looking to experience the real Sardinia then this villa is for you. We'll be back! Thank you Michele and Lucia

“Absolutely brilliant”
Reviewed 14 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

person found this review helpful

We travelled to Alghero (via Olbia airport - 90 min drive) and were met by Lucia and Michele. They are a lovely, helpful couple who made our two week stay in Alghero a truly wonderful experience. It was the best holiday we have ever had.

Maison du Monde is a large two double bedroom house with two bathrooms, a large kitchen and dining area, and is fully equipped with everything you could need on holiday. There is a dishwasher, washing machine, fully equipped kitchen, coffee maker, tv, DVD player, wifi. Everything.

Outside is a marvellous swimming pool (1m deep) and a badminton net, outdoor shower, big table and chairs, fantastic built in bbq, large lawn, hammock, washing line. It is a dream. Check out the photos online. Absolutely beautiful. Really luxurious.

The house is 2 min drive from Alghero and has a very safe feel to it. Parking is very secure and the house is accessed through an electronic gate. There's another, smaller house, in the same area. Also run by Michele and Lucia. Access to the pool and garden (and everything I've mentioned above) is exclusive to Maison du Monde.

Michele and Lucia visited every couple of days to cut the lawn, and clean the pool. They were incredibly friendly and had some really good advice on where to visit:

You must see

1- Alghero, the old town/ramparts.
2- Bosa, beautiful mountain drive to one of the prettiest towns I have ever seen
3- Maria Pia. Local beach.
4- Castelsardo. 80 min drive, another beautiful town.
5- Stintino beach. As good as the beaches in Bermuda

We had an absolutely brilliant time in Maison du Monde. Everything was perfect and I could not recommend it more highly.

We will be back!

Our kids were 5 and 7 at the time of our visit and they agree that this was the best holiday ever. Their favourite bit was the pool!

“very charming”
Reviewed 3 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Beautiful place with great and helpful hosts (special regards to Michele and Lucia). Amazing location in rural outskirts, but at the same time few minutes drive from Alghero, which is exactly what we look for. The house and facilities were completely as advertized and they look exactly the same as in the photos. The pool is very nice, as well as surrounding grounds, with volleyball net and a hammock, there is also a vineyard and fruit trees. We usually rent more modern houses, but this rustic one was a nice change. More comfortable lounge chairs in the outside sitting area, an oven in the kitchen and the possibility to set lights in the pool at your convenience (they turn off automatically at 11.30) would be a plus. All in all, this is relaxing and charming setting. We had a great time there and would not hesitate to recommend the house to our friends.

We are very pleased and happy to have offered to Darija and her family a special holiday "Out of the Ordinary" in our country villa. Also this time we are glad to have not disappointed the expectations of our hosts. We thank to Darija for letting us know about the new services required; in fact we just bought for our future guests an electric oven. We will provide to buy new comfortable mattresses, other chaise longe for the veranda and a remote control to turn on and off the pool lights as convenience of each client, also.
The suggestions of our customers are very important to us.
Thanks again ... see you next year.

“Fantastic holiday!”
Reviewed 17 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We have just returned from La Maison du Monde and thoroughly enjoyed it. Michele & Lucia were so helpful and friendly, and they made everything about the holiday easy. They communicated with us quickly and easily during the booking process and in the weeks before we arrived. We were given great recommendations about where to eat and places to visit, all of which lived up to expectations. The property itself was spacious, comfortable and clean and perfect for the four of us (children are aged 6 & 9) to either be together, or have our own space. I especially liked the hammock, but the children adored the pool! It was a perfect size and depth for them and wherever we were outside we could see and hear them! It is stocked with everything you could need, and we even enjoyed some of their own olive oil and red wine! Alghero itself comes alive at night, and we found ourselves there more often than we had expected, it had a real buzz, and was lovely to walk around. We really couldn't have asked for more, and feel like we have found somewhere special! Thank you Michele & Lucia.

Dear Catherine,
we are very happy to have had you like our guests helping you to spend your holiday truly unforgettable. For us it is very important the satisfaction of our customers and it is for this reason that we do our best to cuddle them.
Our philosophy is to make the holiday enjoyable, not just in our country house but also in Alghero and in the “Coral Riviera”.
For this, first we offer several services in “La Maison du Monde” as:
the pool safe for children; the grass to relax in the shade of the olive trees; spaces to play volleyball, football or bagdinton, or even enjoy the BBQ corner tasting local meat and fresh fish with the flavors of our organic olive oil and wine ...

During the autumn, we give to our clients, for a few days, the opportunity to live a typical "Mediterranean Experience", giving them the chance to harvest and to pick the olives for producing our organic wine and olive oil.
At the same time we provide to our guests all the information about the town of Alghero and its surroundings, gorgeous and unique for their natural beauties.
So, thanks to the meeting between La Maison du Monde and our territory we can make the holiday of our guests unforgettable and ... out of the ordinary ...
So ... thanks again Catherine, we hope to see you soon
Michele and Lucia

“Perfect location - Lovely garden, very quiet and secure yet less than 10 mins drive to Alghero”
Reviewed 22 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We had a great holiday at La Maison du Monde. The property is a spacious bungalow in large and beautiful grounds. Whilst the house is quite basic "shabby chic" as others have mentioned, it is clean, the beds are comfortable, towels and bedding good. It is also cool because of its thick walls, although we did find the air conditioning useful in the bedrooms during the night. The best thing about the property are the grounds - there is an area of lawn with hammock and volleyball/badminton net. There are olive trees and vineyard dotted with fig, plum and lemon trees - it was great being able to pick fruit for breakfast. also to pick fresh herbs. There is a large shaded terrace with plenty of seating and a large table, plenty of choice of places to relax - the hammock, the terrace or the decking by the pool. We made good use of the outside wood over/barbeque - we even tried making pizza! Whilst there were mosquitos outside and in the town, we were not troubled by them in the house as the windows are fitted with insect netting - we all had good sleep. The house has dishwasher and washing machine and hob/microwave but no oven or grill. We did not use the TV/DVD equipment as we spent the whole time outside. The pool is small but clean and large enough to play in - there are balls and inflatables there.
The house is in the depths of the countryside, however only 7-8 minutes drive from the beautiful old town and the coast road which leads to the many lovely beaches. Lidl supermarket (others too) on the way into town.
Michele and Lucia very helpful.

We were sure that even these customers would have spent an unforgettable holiday in "La Maison du Monde". We are pleased, therefore, that our country house has not betrayed the expectations, considering the long and detailed positive review from them. We thank them for this beautiful review but we do not understand why the score 4, instead of 5, as it was not expressed any negative rating that eventually would help us to improve the service for all of our future customers. We, however, want to point out a small disappointment for them, as they have been caused various damage to the objects of the house, made available to them, which have not been declared and paid. Our philosophy is not to ask any caution/deposit to our clients but only their correct style in declaring the damage and eventually make an offer for compensation. We're sure that was just an oversight for them, so we hope to have them again as our guests.
Thanks Michele and Lucia
