Location
The flat is situated in the heart of the picturesque historic centre of Alghero. One side of the flat faces onto a large piazza (square) the other side faces onto one of the old town's typical narrow streets, while the end of the flat overlooks one of the main (pedestrian) streets of the historical heart of Alghero. With windows on three sides, a large open piazza on one side, and its third floor height, the flat gets lots of light. It is also a little higher than the neighbouring buildings, so there is a high degree of privacy. We have recently installed a lift so the climb to the third floor is no longer an issue, however, it should be noted that the lift does not go up the extra floor to the roof terrace.

 
  The Building
The flat is located in a palazzo (building) which has two shops on the ground floor (a handicrafts shop and a shop selling local wines, liqueurs, and specialty foods). On the first floor are a flat and an artist's studio. The second floor is occupied by a single flat, and our flat occupies the entire third floor. Up one more flight of stairs is our stunning roof terrace (for the sole use of our guests, not for the other tenants of the building).
 
 
Facts About the Flat
The flat is just over 100 square metres (about 1,100 sq. ft.) and is comprised of a spacious lounge, a separate dining room, with open kitchen, and a central hall off which are three bedrooms and two bathrooms. There is also a private roof terrace which is also just over 100 square metres.
 
  Enter the Flat
When you open the front door, and enter the flat you find yourself in the lounge, with a hall straight ahead, leading to the bedrooms. and sliding doors on the left leading to the dining room and kitchen.
 
 
The Lounge
The lounge is large, and features French doors looking out at the campanile (bell-tower) of the San Francisco church and the surrounding rooftops. These bells, by the way, only ring once a day, at noon, except on Sundays when they ring two or three times, but not early. The lounge has a ceiling fan, as well as a heat pump (for heat or air conditioning) and is illuminated by beautiful modern gallery-style lighting. It is furnished with 3 sofas, a coffee table and bookcases. A sound system with CD, cassette and radio is provided, and for 2006 we will provide a television and DVD player.
 
 
The Dining Room / Kitchen
The dining room has one window facing east, and another facing south over the large piazza. The dining area is furnished with a country-style table, large enough to seat six, with a bench around two sides and additional chairs. It is separated from the open kitchen by a counter. The kitchen is fully equiped with all the necessary supplies, including a gas stove, brand new large refrigerator, a combination microwave / convection oven / grill, electric kettle, toaster, pots and pans, dishes, cutlery, glassware, dishtowels etc. The heat pump in the living room has a power rating sufficient to heat or cool the dining-kitchen area, as well as the living room.
 
 
Down the Hall  

From the living room a door can close off the central hall. As you proceed down the hall you come to a bedroom on your right and then a bathroom on your left.
 
 
The First Bedroom
This is the smallest bedroom, and can be made up with two single beds or one queen-sized bed. It also has a clothes closet, a chest of drawers, and a bedside table. This room has the same view as the living room, towards the bell-tower of the church of the Franciscan monastery. This room has a ceiling fan / light and it has its own heat pump (heat / air conditioning).
 
 
The Small Bathroom
This bathroom is furnished with a toilet, a stall shower, a washbasin, and a washing machine.
 
 
Further Down the Hall 
A door leads from the first hall into a second hall, off which there is, to the left, the second bedroom, straight ahead, the master bedroom, and to the right the main bathroom. With the door separating the two halls, the flat is almost like two apartments: the master bedroom, 2nd bedroom and main bathroom could serve one family, and the 1st bedroom and small bathroom could serve another, both with a certain degree of privacy.
 
 
The Main Bathroom
The main bathroom has a bathtub (set up for showering as well) a bidet, washbasin, and toilet.
 
 
The Second Bedroom
The second bedroom is a bit larger than the first bedroom, but it is a narrow shape so we have set it up with two single beds. This bedroom is also furnished with a large clothes closet and a bedside table. It has a ceiling fan with light and a heat pump (heat / air conditioning). This bedroom has French doors facing west and opening out onto one of the pedestrian main streets of the old town.
 
 
The Master Bedroom
The master bedroom is a large room, with French doors facing west onto the pedestrianized main street and also a window facing north towards the bell-tower of the Franciscan church. It has a more powerful heat pump to heat and cool the larger area and also a ceiling fan. Illumination is provided by two sets of track lights. This room is furnished with a queen-sized bed, a large clothes closet and bedside tables.
 
 
The Terrace
Up one more flight of stairs from the front door of the flat is the private roof terrace. It is as big as the entire flat below. It has spectacular views over the red-tiled roofs of the old town, of the bell-towers and domes of all the churches and of the sea. The roof terrace has three sun loungers, a table with chairs and a parasol. It is a very pleasant place to relax, especially in the evenings.
