Villa overview - owner's description
The Faro Rosso Estate is a decadent combination of the great Faro Rosso lighthouse as well as the old lighthouse army squadron barracks - now known as the Casa Malfatano. Both of these opulent properties are Italy's only military buildings to be converted into guest accommodation. They will create the most historical of backdrops to begin your own Sardinian adventure.
Located on the southern most tip of Sardinia island, the Faro Rosso Estate is based in a completely private nature reserve of the coastal region of Chia. Clearly placed as such to guide ships, the views offered by this estate go beyond any of the passing vessels, providing guests with a glimpse into the infinite, enabling inspiration, reflection and ultimate contemplation. This gorgeous Mediterranean vista hints at passion, power and the stories of those who have also enveloped themselves in such raw, natural beauty.
After 160 years, the lighthouse itself is still active, serving as beacon to any wayward ships across the horizon, now completely aided with remote technology and without the help of a keeper.
The Faro Ross lighthouse has been beautifully restored and fully renovated, preserving original features - now containing four luxurious suites as well as further two mini-apartment suites, altogether comfortably sleeping up to 12 people. The two mini-apartment suites are set slightly away from the main building but each contain their own lounge along with an upstairs sleeping area, beautifully lit by a skylight just above each bed.
Further to this, Faro Rosso also features its own deluxe infinity pool which overlooks the fantastic surroundings. Casa Malfatano is set just behind the lighthouse but is no less lavish, featuring five plush rooms comfortably sleeping up to ten people. Tastefully redeveloped former lighthouse squadron quarters Casa Malfatano features an elevated outdoor infinity pool which again, offers fine views of the surrounding nature. Withing its private courtyard, the Casa also has a luxurious outdoor seating area complete with its very own bar and a wine cellar underneath.

On the southern most tip of Sardinia, lies the beautiful coastal region of Chia. This idyllic stretch of coast is home to many a picturesque beach, stunning nature and of course, is steeped in history. Chia is a rare beauty, with hillsides overflowing with Juniper, Mastic and Myrtle and a consistently warm temperature which barely ever drops to below 15 degrees centigrade. Around the beaches of Chia there are plenty of things to do including boat trips, snorkelling, sun bathing and of course, lovely coastal walks, all with fantastic views of the ocean.
The nearby beaches of Sa Colonia and Arveskida are also home to a night scene with bars and a small number of clubs, perfect for a night cap before a moonlight stroll on the beach. Nearby sights include Chia Tower which offers fantastic views of the ocean and is itself an interesting place to visit due to its history as a lookout against pirate raids. There is also a golf course in the area along with several shops.
Further up the Chia coast is the historical town of Nora which is a must visit. Nora is home to the archaeological ruins of an Ancient Roman city, containing beautiful temples, mosaics and even Roman Baths. There is also the famed Nora Lagoon which is as gorgeous as it sounds.
