Position and surrondings
The rental flat is located at the Antica Tonnara di Porto Paglia on the south-western coast of Sardinia, only 50 m away from a long and sandy beach, barely over-crowded also in high season. The comunity of Gonnesa, about 7 km away, offers all basic services, like supermarkets, shops, bars, petrol station, bank and some restaurant-pizzeria.
