Charming holiday home in the medieval town of Bosa, on the west coast of Sardinia home swap

The house, which is full of character and original features, lies at the heart of the medieval quarter of Bosa and is well-placed for all the sights and activities and only a minute from the shops and restaurants. It offers flexible self-catering accommodation, sleeping from 2-6 (via two main bedrooms) over four floors with full modern facilities and two bathrooms - one ensuite.

We bought our home 'Dommu Asuletta' in Bosa, Sardinia about four years ago and have since put a lot of time and effort into renovating it. It is our Italian home-from-home and we love to spend time there regularly: there is so much to discover on this beautiful island.

Situated on the Temo river and just 2km from the sea, Bosa is the hidden jewel of Sardinia. Steeped in history and culture, it is off the tourist track yet has so much to offer. From the beautiful unspoiled beaches (Bosa Marina is consistently voted one of Italy's cleanest beaches) to the cultural sights, fine dining and relaxed night life – there is plenty to enjoy whether you are looking for a romantic getaway, a family holiday or a place to enjoy with friends.

Sardinia is such a beautiful island to explore. It enjoys almost year-round sunshine. It has some of the world’s most beautiful, unspoiled beaches but also boasts interesting towns, landscapes and culture to explore if you get tired of soaking up the sun's rays.

The island measures just 165 km from tip to tip and is easy to explore along mostly easy and quiet roads. It is the second largest of the Mediterranean islands in Italy and is well connected to the rest of Europe.
