History


Count on us!

In Porto Rotondo, new generations are prompted to drop anchor or buy a house because, just like the pioneers who shaped this village, they have fallen in love with island and the sea. Just like in the legendary Sixties, they report the same lovesick pining for Sardinia that afflicted the first holidaymakers, they too are blown away gazing at the magnificent villas, and have the same difficulty tearing themselves away from the sea.  It is a serious condition, so if you think you may be suffering from it, come and see us at Immobiliare Claudio Giuntoli, connecting Porto Rotondo and the emotions it elicits. In 1978, arriving in Porto Rotondo from Milan, Claudio Giuntoli felt the same way and so he decided to stay, choosing to settle here and sell beautiful homes.

Re-energised by the fragrant breeze that greeted them at the Costa Smeralda airport, pale after a night-time ferry crossing, the first future Porto Rotondo residents found him sympathetic and happy to meet them and, thanks also to the sea, they quickly recovered. Claudio Giuntoli, as smitten as they were by that little corner of paradise called Porto Rotondo, tells how he started out selling the first houses in the stunning complex Villaggio Country everyone calls nido delle aquile (eagle’s nest) or villaggio di sughero (cork village), reflecting how well this blended in among the rocks. The happiness of those first buyers whose dreams he helped come true kept him going in the real estate business, and he soon gained a legendary reputation in Porto Rotondo and Porto Cervo.

After all, it was Claudio Giuntoli who first appreciated the spectacular beauty of the location, and who packed up and moved here. It was Claudio Giuntoli who started selling the most sought after properties, which he continues to do today. It is Claudio Giuntoli who has an insight into people’s desires and the ability to satisfy those desires with bedrooms, swimming pools and terraces with sea views. All thanks to his business partnership with Consuelo Davoli, an expert real estate agent who knows every stone, every strip of land and every possible scenic viewpoint in this area.

But there is more to it: at the most famous real estate agency on the Costa Smeralda, clients are made to feel like one of the family. Whether they are choosing a house, a sensible parcel of land or a thrilling plot, the new Porto Rotondo residents are initiated and accompanied in the rituals associated with owning a little piece of Eden. Extremely enjoyable rituals like: opening up the house in spring, shutting up at the end of the holidays, welcoming guests, furnishing the property and perhaps creating a Mediterranean garden, al fresco dining on the terrace, acting as tour guide for houseguests. But they are also given valuable help and advice on the loved/hated maintenance jobs; after all, the quiet, elegant style of the village means that you can quite happily change the gas cylinder or organize the rental of your property before meeting friends for an aperitif. As is customary in Porto Rotondo.
