The 6 Best Luxury Villa Rentals in Sardinia, Italy

Looking for a perfect villa vacation rental on the beautiful island of Sardinia, Italy? Sardinia, a gem off the coast of Italy, is the Mediterranean’s second-largest island. Its nearly 2,000km of coastline, sandy beaches, crystal-clear azure blue waters and rugged coast make it a top destination for the European jet-setting elite, and its easy to see why.  But, the true elite Sardinia experience doesn’t come from a hotel, it comes from staying the weekend, the week, or the month in one of these jaw-dropping Sardinia vacation rentals.

These are my picks for a memorable getaway on Italy’s most captivating island, but you can search all villas available for your dates here. And, if you’re interested in planning your trip to Sardinia with an expert, be sure to head over to Sardinia Luxury – they can not only help you book your villa but are a full luxury concierge that knows all of the ins and outs of this beautiful island. I highly recommend using them!

This 6-bedroom cliff-top villa opens to a gorgeous terrace facing the water, with daybeds and loungers scattered around an infinity pool. Covered sitting and dining areas are an oasis from the sun, and a pizza oven and barbecue make it a perfect spot for entertaining. Inside, the villa is as good as a resort, with awesome amenities from a home theater and sauna to a game room with ping-pong and foosball tables.
