“Attractive bolthole in Orosei’s Old Town - a great base from which to discover the wild wonders of Sardinia’s magnificent Golfo di Orosei”
The rooms and suites are spread across three buildings.
Sa Corte / Main House
An arched entrance leads into a small cobbled courtyard, off which the rooms stand. The style is lovely: old stone walls, traditional architecture and contemporary design. You’ll find whitewashed walls, smartly tiled floors, excellent showers and super-comfy beds. We had a First-floor Superior Room that overlooked the courtyard and were very happy with it. If you want extra space and luxury, the Suite has a mezzanine layout with a sleeping area, lounge and Jacuzzi.
Sa Dommo is 200m north of the main house and home to a collection of Economy and Classic Double Rooms . As such, none are huge but they do tend to be popular. All were taken during our visit, though we were able to sneak a very quick peek. Expect tiled floors, great beds, whitewashed walls and smart showers. Pretty good value and this is a rather peaceful corner of town, too.
Sa Turre is 500m north, so a fraction further afield. It’s a relatively modern building in a slightly busier part of town. There’s an attractive whitewashed entrance hall with a couple of sofas, but the real treat here are the 2 communal roof terraces - one covered with tables and chairs, the other with sunbeds to soak up the sun. Views stretch over the town and down to the sea. As for the rooms, those we saw were on the small side, but perfectly good for a couple of days. Interiors are spotless: tiled floors, whitewashed walls, crisp white linen, good shower rooms. You get flat-screen TVs, air conditioning, minibars and some storage.
Breakfast is served in the main house, Sa Corte. It’s a typical continental buffet with jugs of juice, baskets of fruit, rolls and toast, the odd cake, eggs if you want them and good strong coffee or a selection of teas.
The hotel restaurant Locanda Sa Turre, is on the fourth floor of Sa Turre, open daily, and prides itself on traditional cooking with local organic ingredients and a zero food mile policy. You will need to book a table with reception during busy times of year.
There are loads of nearby cafés and restaurants for lunch, so don’t expect to go hungry. You’ll also find a couple of restaurant/bars down on the beach, serving pizzas and salads throughout the summer.
Orosei isn’t a gastronomic destination, but that doesn’t mean you can’t find a tasty meal for dinner. We ate pizza at Sa Marina; the best pizza in town is at Da Filippo, but it’s on the outskirts of town and a bit of a hike. For fresh fish and seafood, try Su Bachile, which is quite posh, or Da Mario, which is less expensive. Finally, try Belo Horizonte at the top of the hill, a small restaurant with huge views from its big terrace.
All ages are welcome, but there are no special facilities on site. However, there are plenty of exciting activities nearby and along the coast, which are great for adventurous older children.
The hotel can provide baby cots and some rooms have space for extra beds.
Remember baby and child equipment may be limited or need pre-booking
Child-friendly options at breakfast and on request for other meals in the restaurant with notice; easy walking distance to restaurants and cafes; packed lunches available on request for outings
You'll need to park in a central car park in town and then walk up the hill to the main reception (a golf buggy to transport luggage can be provided), note that reception is only open certain hours. The Beach Club has a lifeguard on duty
