HIGH-QUALITY GOLF WITH A VIEW!

The Is Molas golf course is one of the most famous golf courses in Italy. Thanks to the proximity of the sea and the protection of the surrounding hills, Is Molas enjoys a unique micro-climate; mild and particularly favorable for golf all year round with winter temperatures often above 10 degrees Celsius and summer temperatures reaching 30 degrees.

The great Henry Cotton and the renowned Frank Pennick (of Vilamoura Old and Noordwijk in Holland fame) designed the golf course and it’s a gem. The Is Molas Championship course (White+Red par 72 – 6.383 mt.) is considered technically challenging and the views and setting make it rather spectacular. From Chia, Is Molas can be reached within 20 minutes.

There are only a few places left in Europe where you can play golf in such tranquility and beauty.

SOUTH SARDINIA BEACHES – SA COLONIA CHIA

Sa Colonia beach is characterized by a large stretch of white-amber sand, bathed by the emerald and crystalline water and shallow shore, which are so typical of this area. On the left side of the beach you will see the Tower of Chia, while on the left rises the Monte Cogoni. Behind the beach are the beautiful dunes and the lagoon of Chia.

How to get there: From the main road of Chia, follow the signs for Torre Chia, take the last road on the right, go straight to the end until you find the parking. Alternatively, instead of turning to Torre Chia, turn right into the next street (Via del Levante), which runs alongside the lagoon, until you get to the parking. From there continue on foot to the beach.

Services (in the summer): bar, toilets, sunbeds and umbrellas rental, parking, canoe, pedalo, jet ski, excursions, diving, snorkeling and sailing.

Our tips: out of season, free parking and less crowded; avoid in case of Mistral; no seagrass.

HOLIDAY HOME VS. HOTEL

 

In Album 2015-08-27

Have you ever asked yourself what are the advantages of renting a holiday property rather than booking a hotel?

Here are the top reasons that might change your mind about renting a home:
1) It’s cheaper per person
2) There is enough space for everybody to retreat and relax
3) You can enjoy the same comfort as in your own home
4) Privacy is king
5) Swim in your own pool, whenever you like
6) Prepare together your favorite meals
7) Experience quality time with family and friends
8) Take your beloved pet with you

Next time you plan your holidays, let us know what is important to you and we will find the perfect holiday property. For more information about our holiday homes collection in South Sardinia check www.simplychillout.com!

SEA DAFFODIL – SYMBOL OF PURITY

This delicate white flower grows spontaneously on the coasts of Sardinia, for example on the protected dunes of Chia. It blooms and reproduces from July to September and its scent is sublime and persistent.

So, please help protect this gift of nature and never step on the dunes.

A GREAT PLACE TO TRY THE GRILLED PIGLET SARDINIAN STYLE

If you are staying in the Chia area, you probably haven’t missed the sign of the Ristorante Bithia, just on the main road to the beaches. Well if you have asked yourself whether you should give them a try, our answer is you should!

This pretty restaurant is open for lunch and dinner and welcomes families with children as well as small groups. Depending on the weather you can eat either in the lovely garden or in the large patio. For cooler days, they also have a few tables inside.

Now let’s talks about their specialties: here is the place where you should try Fregola (a coarse type of couscous) with seafood, fish and meet (e.g. beef ribs) on the grill. On the menu you will also find cutlets, salad dishes and hamburgers. During the summer you can savor the delicious grilled Maialetto Sardo (piglet) which will be served every Tuesday – book in advance! In any case, don’t leave before having tried their delicious desserts, for example the Sfogliata Chantilly (layers of puff pastry with whipped cream and seasonal fruits) and their homemade Sebada (traditional Sardinian fried pastry filled with fresh cheese and honey). Yummmm!

If you have any doubts, just ask the lovely waitress Frederica, which is always friendly and helpful in describing the dishes, even in English.
For bookings contact Ristorante Bithia, Viale Chia 6, 09010 Domus de Maria, Phone +39 0709230069. They also speak English!

TAKE ME THERE!

It might have been the Costa Smeralda with its millionaires, models and mega-yachts that made Sardinia internationally famous, but if you want to explore the real Sardinia and its untouched nature, get away from the glitzy Porto Cervo and travel to the south of the island.

Take the Chia area as a base and from there discover the splendid south-western coast – white-sandy beaches adorned with junipers, fragrant maquis and spectacular views will just take your breath away! Explore the lively little town of Pula, visit the local artisans’ shops and relax at one of the cafés around the large piazza… ohhh, while there, don't forget to visit the historical site of Nora and its gorgeous beach just outside town.
