Position and surroundings
Surrounded by Mediterranean vegetation the charming hotel-resort Poecylia is located about 200 m from the sea on the small island of San Pietro in the south-western tipp of Sardinia and offers quiteness and privacy for relaxing holidays far away from turistic turbulences..
The coast stretch of San Pietro benefits from stupendous beaches of very white sand alternating with marvellous inlets with coves and very high rocks, perpendicular to the sea. Certainly, the least spoiled and most beautiful part of the coast is the western side, where Poecylia is located not far from the lighthouse of Capo Sandalo, Italy's furthest west lighthouse.
The island of San Pietro is linked to the mainlaind by ferry boats plying between the harbor of Carloforte (San Pietro) and the ones of Calasetta (Sant Antioco) and Portovesme (Sardinia). In summer months we recommend the reservation of the ferry boat if you wish to arrive by car.
The picturesque community of Carloforte is about 10 km away from the resort and offers all main services, like supermarkets, a variety of shops, good restaurants, bars and narrow streets and a promenade to ramble around. During the year there are numerous festivals. The most famous one is the tuna fishing festival which takes place at the end of May.
The Poecylia resort is the result of a careful renovation of traditional buildings, now furnished with wooden objects and decorated with colorful draperies which create a cosy and welcoming atmosphere. Because of its location away from turistic turbulences it is the right place for relaxing in all quiteness and enjoying the surrounding unspoilt nature.
The resort charming double rooms and a suite, with its two rooms (without door) suitable also for families. Each room, charmingly furnished with wooden furniture and colorful draperies, has its private bathroom with shower and opens on a small terrace surrounded by the marvellous vegetation which embraces the house.
A continental breakfast will be served as a buffet until noon in the open sea-view living room. Smaller living rooms with comfortable sofas are at guests disposition for reading and relaxing.
The part of the estate facing the bay is an area of incomparable beauty; it is the ideal place to enjoy the sun set.
