Su Gologone Hotel Oliena
Heart Of Sardinia - Quirky Retreat
Boasting past visitors from Madonna to Ava Gardner, this funky, sprawling hotel is just about in the middle of nowhere. Fortunately, nowhere in this case should be just what you're looking for. Surrounded by sheep pastures and vineyards, Su Gologone is literally built into the side of a mountain. With several outdoor terraces (strategically positioned to suit their unique purposes - art gallery, bar, star gazing, poolside gazebo..) you never feel out of touch with where you are. Their restaurant is famous for its authenticity. A fireside seat (if you can stand the heat!) gives you a close-up view of the roasting meats - beef, lamb, pork, to name a few. Enjoy a local cannonau wine, sample some local sheep or goats milk cheeses, and then retire to your room's own terrace for an unparalleled view of the skies without an ounce of light pollution. From here you can easily hike or visit the nearby beaches.
