Imagine also ‘truly gezellig’ lunch picknicks in nature. Mostly on prehistorical sites in unspoilt nature, deep back in time, 4000 years old, full of stories and… silence.
We travel by minivan. The experienced driver is your personal interpreter too.
Our agriturismo is in the countryside of Riola Sardo and our hosts Carmela and Massimiliano are such nice people! Grandma and grandpa still help too. Generations of work, you see around you. The sheep, the cows and pigs. The trees along our appartment filled with little singing birds. Fruit trees all around. At 5 minutes walking you see flamingoes in the wild.
The area is called Sinis, and we have the sea and glorious sunsets at 10 minutes in the west, mountains at 20 minutes in the north, and the local capital Oristano at 20 minutes to the south. These quartz pebbles and grains are illegal to take home.
I also teach you how to avoid the tiny little spines from these cactus figs, and eat this vitamin C bomb!
The fish is directly from the nearby lagunes, of course! This is the fish where the Sardinian caviar bottarga comes from, by the way. Taste that too!
The quiet rooms have their own shower and toilet and wifi. The atmosphere is calm, quiet, sobre, deep sleep, birdsong from the trees wakes you up: best after our beautiful days full of beautiful impressions. Seats to relax outside, cosey.
A walk in the old vulcano caldera just feels differently.
The lagunes can dry up around the edges, they say under the mud a lost city….

The tiniest and cutest of ‘giant tombs’ on the island, along a deserted road, where nature is taking over. Rich natural simplicity. Great places to walk to and around! Who were these ‘giants’? Italians call the island ‘Isola Mito, the island of myths’. Rightly so!
Just to illustrate that you will eat local produce only, from Sardinia!
We’ll get closer to the flamingo’s, their sound is peculiar, their awareness of us sharp indeed. And when they take to the air, at first clumsily, but very soon: elegance!
Standing on the old vulcano, a perfect place to see the sun set too over this westernpart of Sardinia. Difficult to find spot, but not for us.
Just to illustrate that so much along the road is edible, here wild fennel. And there’s much more to eat along the streets 🙂
They are master horse-riding here, the local carnival is about horse acrobacy and showing their bravery. A long waiting list for those that want to participate!
The ‘Mayan’ water temple but then dating 2000 years before the Mayans… A fascinating place ode to the moon and feminility.
Cordiality and immediate friendship at the table, you will be among Sardinians.
Feel the deep quietness of just simply a now deserted road, trees taking over, walking towards the tiny Giant’s Tomb, one of the best preserved on the island. Here you will see the elegant design they all used to have.
