The Sardinian people call pomegranates “arenada”, the laughing fruit. It has been the symbol of happiness for centuries, embroidered on table cloths and painted on ancient pottery. A miniature world to hold within your hands.

Villa Arenada is considered a real gem among the luxury complex of villas designed by the archistar Massimiliano Fuksas. In fact this cozy and charming property has been defined by Fuksas as the most beautiful one.

The truthful elements of beauty and wild nature of Southern Sardinia are depicted in the essence of the harmonious architecture and interior design that inspired Fuksas collection of villas. Therefore, he has called them:

“Houses as sculptures to live in”.

These depictions are largely represented in Villa Arenada, which in the Sardinian language means ‘pomegranate’, the smiling fruit, composed of countless seeds, for centuries the symbol of happiness.
