Talk about breathtaking! This spectacular oceanfront villa, dubbed Villa Las Tronas, is located on the Riviera del Corallo, on the north-west coast of Sardinia, Italy and is situated on 4.4 acres. It was originally erected in 1880 on the ruins of an ancient watch-tower by Alessandro, third count of St. Elijah. In 1959 Francesco Arborio Mella, fifth Count of St. Elijah, sold the villa to its current owners. The property was renovated and a new floor was added to the main building. It is now being used as a hotel/restaurant. It boasts approximately 20,699 square feet of living space with 25 bedroom suites, main hall, living room and dining rooms, kitchens and an annex lower ground floor and staff apartment. The annex building currently houses a spa, with fitness and beauty area, indoor swimming pool, sauna, Turkish bath and more. The property also features a large parking area, outdoor swimming pool, boat docks, a private beach and last but not least, a helipad! The price is available upon request.

    I would love to see the interior but it is such an impressive looking estate, I love it.

    Pretty, but it doesn’t really look like you can go swimming because of all the rocks.

      True, there’s probably only shallow parts that you can go in. The water still is beautiful though 🙂

      There’s a beach on the right side when facing the front of the house, which is really all it needs.

    Sardinia is truly beautiful, and this would make a great house if someone were to turn it back into one. It’s reminiscent of the villa and settings used for the movie “Evil Under the Sun” (way back from 1982), especially knowing that it’s currently a hotel.

    Could be better, but I love it. The water looks amazing. I wonder how much? Can it be converted back to a residence? I bet the interior isn’t that great if it was a hotel. The lot is amazing though.

    I feel like the task of converting the place back into a home would be daunting, and even when done it wouldn’t feel quite “right”. I could be wrong though. Beautiful setting.

      Yeah I’m not sure what to think. Is it still a “house”? Beautiful surroundings though. I would never live abroad for more than a few weeks. Not my thing.

    It stands out too much – would much prefer something that looked more in harmony with the to-die-for location. I also wish there were more interior shots. Need to know if my urge to bulldoze it and start from scratch is justified.
