Have you heard about the Sardinian village that offers ‘houses for 1 euro in Ollolai?’ Come and explore and judge for yourself, personally. Assisted by a personal interpreter (for the group as well) and an expert-guide on Sardinia.

Based at a family run, authentic agriturismo next to Ollolai we are will explore this village and it’s fascinating Barbagia area: a bastion of independent feeling and super healthy old people.

Indeed we’ll personally explore the 9 success elements that in 5 Blue Zones around the world (Sardinia being one of them) allow people to reach such an advanced age in good health. And how can these 9 successelements be kept alive back home?

And the houses? How are they and how is the area? What does it take to buy them? We meet people that inform well and friendly.

And discovery? Sardinia is a special place on earth also for it’s peculiar prehistorical sites. Wouldn’t these huge ‘remains’ be world famous elsewhere?

(+3000 years old, tens of metres long and nobody knows…)

And healthy life? You probably heard about the Blue Zones in the world: many people there live up to a 100 in good health. Come and have a look, in present and deep history, and get a deep feel of the area.

The group can only be 9 people in total, our minivan takes us from and to the airport and on the excursions. All from the farm in the hills around Ollolai, one of the highest villages in Sardinia, an authentic granite centre, a beautiful lake nearby. Provincial capital Nuoro is 30 minutes to the north. In 30 minutes around we find many many Sardinian gems, with the sea at 1,5 hours away. You are in the famous Barbagia region here, truly authentic. With villages that make part of the Sardinian Blue Zone too, all at a few kms distance. Picture a mountainous area, winding roads, forests, rocks, lakes, authentic culture in every village, deeply rooted into even.

The agriturismo in the hills around Ollolai, 5 minutes away, is pure and simple, based on what the land and animals can give, very locally. The cook is inventive and creates quality with little, because the ingredients are tasty. Friendly familiar atmosphere, no luxury needed to be happy. They prepare what they cooked a 100 year ago too, and that makes them real pro’s here too.

They are wide open to the world, but just simply prefer staying Sardinian. Period. They love to let you try and taste traditional things, and of course you are not obliged to try the famous maggot cheese. In all respect. They love to prepare things from local ingredients, local recipes. Sardinian style, as local as possible. The food is pure and delicious.

The famous Sardinian maggot cheese… Of course you can try some too 🙂


The agriturismo has four double rooms with en suite bathroom. And it has a big swimming pool, with cows looking at you 🙂
