Description

Photos and Description of this holiday cottage in Lanusei - Domus Tegas.

Domus Tegas, a small paradise for your children.

A lovely vacation home situated at 16 km from the beautiful beaches of Cardedu. In this large Mediterranean property, the owner Mario built a soccer field near his house, This is only meant for personal use, not for outsider persons. A place where your children could rampage go.

In this own large domain, at 15 to 20 minutes walk away from your cozy vacationhouse, a river runs through Mario's terrain. Here are a few beautiful, nature-made pools, there where your children can bathe.

Want to have some fun? Walk around the garden area and some farm animals will welcome you with a lot of interesting sounds, smells, and sights. These animals aren't politically correct but are delightfully themselves.

Why visit Lanusei?

With its mild and temperate climate, healthy air and fairytale scenic landscapes, Lanusei has now gained a prime position as a holiday resort in Sardinia, not just because of its historic and natural treasures but also for the intense cultural life that takes place in certain periods of the year. For example on the first Sunday in June, the town’s Patron Saint San Giovanni Bosco is honoured with religious ceremonies, sporting events and poetry competitions. Or again the celebrations in honour of the Saints Cosma and Damiano held between 20thAugust and 27th September with processions, food and traditional dancing.

Splendid old buildings, neat squares, a breathtaking scenic backdrop; Lanusei, the capital of the Province of Ogliastra, is located in the east of Sardinia on the ridges between Mount Gennargentu and the coast, and betwixt the green of the hinterland and the deep-blue sea. It enjoys a magnificent position set in the midst of natural wonders and easily-reachable sites of great tourist and cultural interest.

Lanusei and Ogliastra true and genuine place to be. Let yourself go; be delighted by the limpid colours of its skies and beaches, its rough vegetation’s stimulating scents; taste and discover its millennial culture. Ogliastra's cuisine is both simple and refined although its great variety is discovered only by those who have the desire to immerse themselves into a timeless world.

Throughout all of Ogliastra, from north to south, it’s not easy finding fast food restaurants where you can “eat and run”. Rather, you will find places where you can stop and relax, where you can savour typical Sardinian gastronomical products, accompanied by the warmth and hospitality of its people.

If you have never tasted the liqueur made of myrtle, nor smelled the honey-perfumed seadas’ or the fragrance of pane carasau, then you are ready for this journey.

Ogliastra will enchant you with its many treasures throughout the entire year.

Ogliastra; island into the island, immersed in the sea, island of natural beauties……your holiday island! Year after year, its unique colors and ancient traditions conquer millions of visitors who flood this corner of paradise situated in the heart of the Mediterranean.Low-cost flights from and to Sardinia. Use the flight search engine to find the cheapest low-cost flights and purchase them from the airlines directly.

Sardinia is a beautiful and fascinating island; this portal strives to catalogue its numerous tourist attractions. It is a wonderful and captivating island for those whose visit is motivated by its medieval churches, extraordinary scenery and nuraghe.

For those with a passion for hunting, fishing, hiking, or horseback-riding; for individuals interested in visiting its Phoenician, Punic and Roman historical testimonials or satisfying their curiosity on subjects concerning geology, nature and mineralogy, and finally, for those who are interested in its genuine folklore and celebrations, its many beaches and transparent coastlines, sudden gorges and hidden grottoes.

Lastly, let’s not forpost its marshes and their typical fauna or pleasure boating along its coastline from which one of the most scenic and remarkable views of the Mediterranean is offered.

Lanusei: a small hilly town renowned for its invigorating healthy climate, Lanusei is set as an amphitheatre dominating a valley, the coast and the sea. Surrounded by a forest of oaks, it also enjoys a privileged central position and can make its own resources and those of neighbouring villages readily available to tourists.

It is the most important town for culture in Ogliastra, seat of the diocese and the religious college of the Salesiani, the law court and also the hospital. It has a wealth of cultural centres: museums, churches and monuments testify its resplendent past. Worth mentioning is the Astrological Observatory “F. Caliumi”, open to the public, situated on the top of Monte Armidda, an ideal location, free from light pollution.

Various areas of the territory display a gorgeous landscape rich in wild life: wild-boars, moufflons, birds of prey, partridges and hares, etc. The lovely scenery that can be admired from Monte Armidda includes the characteristic Perda Liana, Monte Tricoli, the porphyry crest of Serra Coronedda and the littoral plain.The archaeological legacy on the territory covers all the periods from early Neolithic to Roman times.

The most significant finds are from the Nuragic era: 6 nuraghi, 2 giants’ tombs and about 14 areas where settlements are supposed to have existed. The most important archaeological and environmental site is Selene: an ancient settlement perched on a rocky outcrop with, at a brief distance, beautiful giants 'tombs'.

Tourism in Sardinia is a relatively new phenomenon and until recent times there was little choice but to stay in modest inns or private houses, especially away from the largest towns and a handful of old, well-known seaside resorts. Today the quality of Sardinian tourist accommodation has reached the same high standards found in the rest of Italy (thanks in part to important events such as the establishment of a Sardinian tourist board in 1952, and changes in regional laws starting in the 1960s which incentivized investment from individuals and large companies).

The coastal areas are not the only places driving the growth of tourism in Sardinia, with many areas once exclusively used for farming and grazing now offering fantastic holiday accommodation, such as Fonni and Oliena. The number of different holiday possibilities is countless, stretching from your traditional hotel, to simpler, often more rural options like bed and breakfasts or agritourism farmhouses.

Another possibility for those who want to immerse themselves in the mediterranean scrub and breathtaking landscapes of the Sardinian countryside is the campsite, particularly recommended to lovers of walking. A fantastic alternative to hotels or resorts is the self-catering holiday home, many of which have swimming pools and/or are right by the sea. If you are looking for a beach holiday you will soon notice the different characters of the various coastal areas.

The Emerald Coast (Costa Smeralda) and the famous seaside towns near Olbia (including Porto Cervo and Porto Rotondo) are very popular among the rich and famous, and whilst their 'exclusiveness' is questionable, they ooze style and sophistication. In contrast areas such as Santa Margherita di Pula, Porto Conte, Baia Sardinia and Villasimius are popular destinations for package holidays, whereas areas like Alghero, Santa Teresa di Gallura, La Maddalena, San Teodoro, Cala Gonone, Golfo Aranci and Muravera are popular among more traditional, independent tourists.

In addition to these well known destinations there are many minor coastal towns and villages where you can find great accommodation at very good prices, especially in agritourism farmhouses, bed and breakfasts, and hotels, the rising stars of Sardinian tourism. The early days when Sardinian hotels were known for their lack of professionalism, offset only by the beauty of the island and the friendliness of the islanders, have long since passed, even in the lesser known places.

Despite the growth of tourism in Sardinia the countryside retains its wild, uncontaminated beauty, and visitors always enjoy a completely authentic experience, never a manufactured one.

About Gianni Franceschi

Dear People,

I was born in Lanusei Sardinia. At the young age of 18th I came to The Netherlands where since 1976 I'm working for The Dow Chemical Company in Terneuzen. Beside my own job, I began with the renting of vacation homes on the eastern coast of Sardinia; all these units belong to family and good friends of mine. The owner on place, will welcome you with open arms, although, I do have all the responsibility for a smooth and proper running of your vacation and as intermediary between you and the owner of the property.

Sincerely, Gianni Franceschi

Gianni Franceschi purchased this cottage in 1999

What makes this cottage unique

Mountains, rocks, crystalline sea: this is the landscape that is found in the territories that make up this section of Sardinia, that is, the Ogliastra with its ‘Tacchi’ (mountain outcrops), desert areas and small isolated coves; the Gennargentu with its snow-covered mountain tops and its skies, playground to the majestic golden eagle; and finally the Supramonte, an uncontaminated paradise of still unexplored caves, centuries-old forests and archaeological and naturalistic treasures. In these areas the keen sports enthusiasts can find their dream: in fact, there is all the space needed to practice equestrian sports, even long rides on the beaches, to climb up the tall, vertical rocky walls that look out onto the sea, to do a variety of surfing activities, to go trekking and go on mountain bike excursions, all pleasant alternatives to visit otherwise inaccessible areas.

Forty kilometres of the wildest Sardinian coastline, with vertical cliffs cut by deep incisions that interrupt the impressive rock walls with sandy bays and beaches, which are true jewels of the Mediterranean. By definition one of the last natural paradises, where birds such as Audouin's Gull, Eleonora's Falcon and the European Shag nest and live in symbiosis with a natural habitat with many species found only in this area and jealously guarded by the shepherds who to this day graze their herds of goats. The Grotta dei Colombi, the inlets of Portu Pedrosu and Portu Quau and the beaches of Cala Goloritzé and Ispuligidenie (Cala Mariolu and the Spiaggia dei Gabbiani) will accompany you in an unforgettable voyage, discovering undersea sumps inside the Grotta del Fico, the last kingdom of the Monk Seal, and taking you back in time to relive an ancient world. And we're not finished, there are still the beaches of Cala Sisine and Cala Luna.

we want to go back

  • 5 of 5

Jetzt sind wir schon seit zwei Wochen wieder zurück in Deutschland, aber sind mit unseren Gedanken immer noch in Lanusei. Wir hatten eine so schöne Zeit dort. Das verdanken wir vor allem unserem Gastgeber Mario. Wir haben uns gefühlt wie auf Besuch bei Freunden. Wir saßen bei Mario in der Küche und haben seinen selbstgemacheten Mirto getrunken (einen so guten Mirto haben wir in unserer Zeit in Sardinien nicht wieder gefunden) und an seiner langen Küchentafel mit ihm und Freunden lecker sardisch gegessen. Dazu gab es interessante Gespräche (Mario spricht deutsch) und zum Abschluss ein paar Tropfen von Marios Schnapps-Experimenten. Wir hatten an einem Abend auch das Glück Gianni kennenzulernen, der sich von Anfang an toll um unsere Buchung und Fragen gekümmert hat.

Das Haus, in dem wir wohnten, hat Mario gebaut und mit Liebe und Verstand eingerichtet. Die Küche war top ausgestattet, mit großen Kühlschrank, Gasherd und Kamin. Ein gemütliches Schlafzimmer, das schön kühl bleibt und einen romantischen Blick auf den Sternenhimmel oder das Tal bietet. An allen Ecken spürt man Marios Sinn für schöne Handwerkskunst. Der Wasserdruck stimmt, selbst draußen kann man duschen. Wenn ich mir noch etwas wünschen müsste, dann eine Terasse vor dem Haus mit Liegen und freiem Blick auf das Tal. Das Natur-Schwimmbad (mit Glodfischen) haben wir nicht benutzt, aber wer im sehr heißen August kommt, springt sicher gerne rein. Das Internet hat immer gut funktioniert. Ein Haus, in dem man eigentlich das ganze Jahr verbringen kann.

Der Abschied ist uns richtig schwer gefallen. Wir sind von Mario so reich beschenkt worden. Die sardische Gastfreundschaft hat uns beeindruckt, ebenso wie die Landschaft, die Täler, die Küste, das Meer, das Essen. Als Erinnerung bleiben uns jetzt nocht Andreas Olivenöl, Salvatores Käse, Marios Grappa und ein paar weitere Andenken. Mario, nochmal von uns, ein ganz herzliches Dankeschön für Alles!

The vacation house is in an idylic valley.

  • 5 of 5

A vacation for those who want to get away from the hussle and bussle - the vacation house is in an idylic valley in the midst of vinyards and orchards - Mario and his brother raise goats, there are donkeys, a horse, several friendly small dogs - it's about 30 minutes from some nice beaches, and 10 to the sleepy town of Lanusei - this is not particularily a vacation area, which is part of its charm. great hiking and mountain biking area. also great if you have kids and want to show them something of country life - you'll be invited to milk the goats and make cheeze if you want. Mario is a truely warm person, and will help you with whatever - he seems to truely enjoy helping people - he made us feel as if we were good friends - one of the most enjoyable vacation weeks we have had.

Die Vermieter sind wirklich sehr nett und hilfsbereit. Nochmals vielen Dank an dieser Stelle. Wir haben uns bei euch sehr wohl gefüllt. Absolut ruhige Lage, nette einheimische Nachbarn. Zweckmäßige Einrichtung mit teils älteren Möbeln, alles sauber. Gut ausgestattete Küche. Sehr zuverlässige und pünktliche Übergaben des Hauses bei An– und Abreise. Großes Grundstück, unser Kinder hatte seinen Spaß und wir auch.

Authentiek huis met een prachtige ligging !!

  • 5 of 5

Wat een paradijsje vonden we bij Mario !! Een warm ontvangst bij aankomst en tijdens het verblijf ! De kinderen hebben genoten van alle beesten verzorgen en het melken van de geiten. De jongste weet wat hij wil worden: boer op Sardinië. Wij van de heerlijke pasta's, kazen, wijn en ham. Een heerlijke week met zon, zee, bergen, strand en rust.

We have already said that Tortolì is geographically in a prominent position in trade from Sardinia to the rest of the Italian peninsula and in general to the whole European Community.

Both airport and port are named for the village Arbatax the country and both were born in the 60s of last century, mainly at the behest of the mill Arbatax, now closed.

The airport complex is then passed into the hands of the Sardinia Region.

Both peaks were in attendance during the summer even if they are working throughout the year. The airport runway is 1500 meters and ensures security and functionality for small to medium sized aircraft. The main routes are those with Rome and Milan in Italy, abroad while many charter flights arriving, especially from Germany.

Upon landing, the view is great because you are just a few meters from the sea and a beautiful beach of Tortoli.

There is also a control tower and is conveniently connected with the rest of the city. As for the port are the major sea routes with nearby Genoa and Civitavecchia Rome.
