Villa overview – owner’s description
The Carruba holiday home is located in the village of Carruba Manna in the fertile plain of Campidani of Sardinia, a few minutes’ drive from the town of Uta. Cagliari Airport is about 15 km away. Excellent starting point to reach the south-west coast (50 km), with its beautiful sand dunes of Chia and Pan Di Zucchero, and the piers of Masua (50 km) or Tuerredda or the southeast coast with its beautiful white and sandy beaches of Villasimius (60 km). At guests disposal a large natural ground with two large terraces equipped with garden furniture and barbecue. An olive grove, cactus, myrtle and fruit trees are available depending on the season. The house Carruba is named after a huge carob tree, which many years ago grew on the opposite bank of the Riu Cixerri, which flows into the lagoon of Santa Gilla (the latter is important for the presence of a large salt evaporation pond founded by the Romans and still active today, this also formed the first nucleus for the foundation of the city of Cagliari). Under this tree settled a large herd of sheep and here the festivities of the village took place. Not far from the lake Cixerri, was recently discovered an ancient Roman road linking the salt mines of Cagliari with the town of Cornus on the east coast in the direction of Porto Torres on the north-west of Sardinia. From here you can visit the “Castello di acqua fredda”, also called “del Conte Ugolino della Geherardesca”, which was quoted by Dante in his Divine Comedy. Or take a guided hike on Mount Arcosu (25 km), or visit the ancient Phoenician city and the archaeological site of Nora (40 km). The house is reached via a stretch of dirt road (400 m).
