Location: Porto Rafael, Sardinia, Italy
Price: €14 million (US$13.6 million)
Perched above a private sandy beach, this bright-white compound on a secluded 6.24-acre parcel is on Sardinia’s posh Costa Smeralda in the northeastern part of the Italian island.
Known as the Ulivi Estate, it offers 10 bedrooms spread between a main villa and a separate guest villa. It was designed by the Sardinian architect Michele Busiri Vici and built in 1969.
“His villas are unique and original works, influenced by the landscape, light and exposure,” said listing agent Daniela Bracco, president of Immobilsarda SRL, an affiliate of Christie’s International Real Estate. They are “camouflaged in the environment, in great continuity between outdoor and indoor spaces, simple but with attention to detail and great livability in terms of space, air, light and greenery.”

The villa “is a retreat of peace and serenity designed to accommodate families and their guests in total privacy and tranquility,” she said. “It’s the perfect spot for buyers looking for nature, wellness, healthy living and a genuine lifestyle.”
Architectural details include white stucco walls, an open floor plan, multiple outdoor spaces with open sea views, arched windows, a tiled roof, an interior patio and an old-style vintage kitchen with a pantry. The second-floor primary bedroom features a sea-facing roof deck, a large solarium and a built-in closet. The other bedrooms are on the ground floor.
“The highlight of the property is also its location—a natural amphitheater of gardens bursting with color, expansive lawns, pristine pink sand beaches and natural sculptures of granite rock formations,” Ms. Bracco said.
The 4,661-square-foot main house has six bedrooms and five full bathrooms. The 1,679-square-foot guest house has three en-suite bedrooms, plus another bedroom and a full bathroom. They sit on a 6.42-acre site.
Amenities include a guest house, a meandering stone path that leads to a private sandy beach, olive and oleander groves, multiple pergolas and outdoor terraces, a garage, landscaped gardens and flat lawn areas, and an outdoor fireplace and pizza oven.
The Ulivi Estate is in a secluded residential area with a few other prestigious villas that are tucked into a landscape of large rock masses and lush Mediterranean vegetation, Ms. Bracco said.
The villa is just minutes from the Yachting Club of Porto Rafael, which has 80 full-service berths, and the Piazzetta, which has fashionable boutiques and popular cafes and seaside restaurants, she said. “The glamorous resort of Porto Cervo is also a short drive away.”
