Il Bellavista è un hotel tranquillissimo ... per chi come me ama il relax è il posto ideale. Ci sono stato per 3 volte, agosto 2006, agosto 2007, agosto 2010 e vi posso assicurare che i padroni di casa sono così cordiali che ... ci si affeziona subito!!
Family run hotel. Has the best location possible : overlooking the sea. Quite big impeccable rooms. Rooms aren't provided with : AC, TV, fridge, internet facilities. Very limited breakfast : fresh bread, butter, jam. Had to ask to have fruit juice. No restaurant. The hotel has no pool, no car park. Ideal for people seeking a quiet rest. Very few customers.
I learned about the Bellavista (and the little town of Calasetta itself) on the Trip Advisor forum for Sardinia. The Sardinia experts said it was the place to go if you like laid back, less touristy beaches and atmosphere. It is not fancy (the Luci di Faro down the street probably has more amenities), but it was simple, scrupulously clean and had a view to die for of a gorgeous little cove. It was literally steps from one of the prettiest beaches I have ever seen and also right in town for leisurely strolls to the piazza for dinner and people watching. My husband and I spent four days here as the last part of our Italian honeymoon and it was hands down our favorite part of the whole trip. Calasetta felt like the perfect little Italian town we had been looking for (everyone goes home to eat the big mid day meal and at night old men, women, and kids sit around the plaza just shooting the breeze and eating gelato). The Bellavista is also a very popular restaurant, but since we were there in mid-September (just after the summer season, during which my sense was there are a number of domestic tourists) it was closed. Three caveats - although I would stay there again in a heartbeat: 1) "breakfast" means toast with jam and a (wonderful) cup of cafe latte. Very European, but Americans who expect eggs, etc might be surprised. 2) The owner does not speak English, so you'll need to brush up on your Italian for the booking and while you are there. It is run by an elderly couple who despite the language barrier were very friendly (they even lent us their personal beach umbrella!). 3) No air conditioners or fans. This was fine when we were there in September, but I can imagine it being less fine in July. Still, there is a nice breeze off of the water (certainly make sure you get a balcony room). All in all, Calasetta was just lovely and the Bellavista for us was the perfect home base to experience it.…
