Only 50 Km from Cagliari, in Chia area, in the extreme south of Sardinia, the Lighthouse "Faro Capo Spartivento" dominates the landscape from the homonymic promontory. Surrounded by a still wild and unspoiled nature, where the Mediterranean scrub grows with its splendid colours and scents, the Lighthouse stands on a cliff overlooking the sea, reachable by a dirt road closed to the public.
An exclusive location to celebrate your wedding in Sardinia!
Built in 1856 by the Italian Navy, on an area of 600 sqm, the Faro Capo Spartivento accommodated the family of the lighthouse keeper up to the 80s. Today the Faro (lighthouse) and Residenza Semaforisti are Luxury Guests Houses, keeping its charm and its original nature of the lighthouse, which illuminates the sailors way for 150 years.
Peculiarities – The Faro Capo Sparitvento has been renovated with a panels system using the solar energy to heat water, and also with a phyto-purification waste water system, which reuses them for the garden.
External area – In the 3000 sqm back garden, a centuries-old olive tree stands in the middle of a large lawn; a 12 m fireplace with a lounge and a barbecue area. In the central raised area, eight crystal gazebos of 16 sqm each, where guests can dine enjoying the splendid sea or hill view. In front, over the amazing sea, are a beautiful infinity pool and two Jacuzzi nestled into the wooden platform of 200 sqm. All around are loungers and an elegant lounge with white leather sofas and parasols, ideal for breakfast or lunch or just a drink with breathtaking view.
Internal area – The entrance is a 120 sqm big area, embellished with particular red chandeliers made of Murano glass and offers a dining room and different cosy lounges. A cast iron spiral staircase connects to the cellar (once an old underground tank) and another staircase leads upstairs to the tea room with fireplace with big coffer used as a library, the four Suites and an office room with PC, ADSL, telephone, stereo music system. Another spiral staircase leads to the second floor that opens up to the roof top terrace: guests can relax on the four-poster bed for a sunbath or at night, to be enchanted by the starry sky.
