About Judy Houston
Jimmy is design consultant based in London . Judy is Irish ,originally from Northern Ireland but settled in Dublin. We mostly live in Dublin. We are both interested in interior design and really loved designing our old farmhouse in Teulada. We visit Teulada regularly and love the peace and quiet .
Judy Houston purchased this House in 2007
Why Judy Houston chose Teulada
We are romantics! We sailed around Sardinia and just loved the Island and the people . We then returned for a cycle trip of the South West and were even more impressed. We spotted a house near Teulada marina , thinking this would be a good place to leave a boat . Later we then returned on a house search and amazingly the house opposite the one we had photographed was for sale . A years renovation turned out to a great experience with local architect,builders and the friends we had made from the purchase . We feel very lucky to have such a beautiful Casa in an amazing setting.
What makes this House unique
We fell in love with the authentic style of the old farmhouse . The amazing setting in the green valley looking at Monte Idu where we watch the sunset with a G&T or local vino on the terrace . The silence except for sheep bells , bird and animal noises . The donkey in the field by the old church keeps us amused talking to his friends in other fields ! The fact that there is no light pollution means that the sky is a wonder at night . (There is a phone app which tells you what the stars are called) The fact that we can not see any other houses makes for a totally private and romantic setting .

A rural delight
Loved this property and its peaceful, fairly remote location. The house itself is very well equipped (even a kettle) and tastefully furnished. A dish drying rack would be useful. Very comfortable bed without that awful gap down the middle which exists all too often abroad. Lovely bedlinen and towels, including beach / pool towels. The pool was heavenly and we were not disturbed by anyone coming to skim it, which we would happily have done ourselves if there had been a net. We took the leaves and bugs off by hand when we were in the water. The only issue we had with the pool was the frequency of filtering, which was noisy and seemed to take place when we wanted to sit quietly beside it reading during the day or having a drink in the evening. Perhaps the timer needed tweaking. The grounds are extensive and very private, only spoiled one evening by a gardener who turned up around 7pm and started to strim with a very loud petrol strimmer. I asked him politely if he could come back another evening when we wouldn't be there and he was fine about it. (A lack of any Italian language could have been very difficult both with this and with shopping etc as very few locals spoke English.)
We were disappointed by the eating opportunities, as many places recommended in the property's info folder were closed in late June. Vegetarians beware too - a very disappointing choice everywhere, but for fish eaters it was great. The supermarkets were hard to find and quite empty. It was too hot and too far to walk to restaurants / shops / beaches. The beaches were disappointing, again quite far away and either covered with rows of sunbeds (not to our taste) or very seaweed-covered (the dry stuff which sticks to you). As we were only there for a week we felt we spent too much time trying to find a good place to swim and paddle board. It was nicer to stay by the pool.
Not as easy to find the place as it sounds in the directions, partly because the church is not visible from the road, but once you find it along a dusty track it is almost perfect. I'd go again!
Quiet, restful, comfortable stay
The garden and location exceeded our expectations and the verandah was huge and comfortable with lots of sitting out and dining areas. We loved the pool. We were there when the other apartment was empty, and it was lovely to have it to ourselves
We stayed in this lovely renovated farmhouse for one week.Its quiet location,beautiful garden and superb pool made our holiday- An ideal place to relax.The proximity to lovely beaches and shops and restaurants in Teulada was a real bonus.We would certainly recommend the Agriturismos only a short drive away.
Thank you for your kind review .
Yes , the Agriturismos are wonderful with their roast suckling pig and Lamb stew ... Only for meat eaters though !
Gianni's fish restaurant is the best for amazing fish dishes .
An house very beautiful!!
Inside house is complete!
A little house lost next sea!
Perfect for relaxing!
The property was easy to find (we checked it out on Google street view first), excellent location, clean and very well presented.
The nearby coast is beautiful, fantastic coves and beaches, with excellent snorkelling. The coast road is also great for cycling.
Overall we had a fantastic week relaxing.
This villa is ideal for those who want to relax and explore the natural side of the island, and comes highly recommended.
Property and location are excellent.
My only niggle about the property is that it wasn't made clear to us that the name on the gate is 'Tuerra'. We spent about an hour driving up and down the track looking for 'Casa Canne! Perhaps this is something the owners should think about. Otherwise brilliant.. Ideal for chilling by the pool and on the terrace. Beautiful location and very private. Accommodation very comfortable, clean and well equipped. Area is a backwater.. Tourism very low key. Virtually everyone you encounter will either be local or Italians from the mainland and hardly anyone speaks English. A smattering of Italian or a phrase book essential. However, all this is a definite plus. It's refreshing to be in southern mediterranean and not be surrounded by other Brits and North Europeans.
Teulada is only 5 mins. and you can get just about everything you will need there. Excellent market on Monday mornings worth a visit. However, shops dotted about in very confusing way and better supermercato in Sant Anne Aressi 15\20 mins. Beaches at Porto Tramatzu and Porto Pino are best in area but organised - you pay to park, sunbeds and facilities etc. Great if you have kids but if you want something more 'au naturale' just drive along coast road - 20 mins. from Casse Canne is excellent small beach with decent sand and easy parking and access. Best best for outings are Sant Antioco (50 mins) and Iglesias (75 mins). The drive north of Iglesias through the mountains to Arbus is pretty stunnning.
Quiet rural location, minutes from the sparkling Mediterranean Sea and the small town . Marina with fishing boats . Beautiful beaches .
