This is a small but practical cottage, situated on a hilltop in some stunningly beautiful countryside. The location is quiet and relaxing and has a private and secluded feel.
The owners (who speak Italian and French) are friendly and we felt very welcome. They grow olives and grapes near the cottage and we got some home-made wine and olive oil as a welcome gift. They were kind enough to meet us in the nearest village and guide us to the location of the cottage.
The cottage is quite new, and it's clean and is well furnished. We had everything we needed including a full kitchen. (You need to bring your own drinking water.) It has a small garden and is surrounded by the owner's vineyards and olive groves.
We were there in spring and had an excellent stay: great temperature for walking and the countryside in bloom. The cottage is situated near two of the most famous walking destinations in Sardinia, the Tiscali stone-age village and the Gorropu canyon. You could reach both by foot from the cottage or drive for a few minutes to a convenient parking space near the river.
A minor warning: driving to the house is slightly rough. The last stretch (about 500 meters) is a steep dirt road, which can probably be a bit difficult for some vehicles or if it's raining. We didn't have any problems, though. The nearest location for grocery shopping is Dorgali, a 20-minute drive from the cottage.
Maria and her family were wonderful, so welcoming, friendly and it was obvious that she wished our stay to be a good one.
The property is approx. five min in the car from the main town center, one could walk if you are fit enough for the hill climb back.
The view is really lovely from the terrace area out to the sea with the hillside to the side and back.
