Boutique gourmet hotel, stylishly individual, spectacular spot - an absolute must. Ray loves the taste of mountainous Sardinia, that slightly wild feel…& the food. Annie loves Su Gologone's colours, the hospitality, the "perfectly imperfect " sumptuousness…& the food.
Inland, in the east of Sardinia, little villages like Oliena, which still retain the old Sard traditions and crafts, are surrounded by steep-sided hills, caverns, gorges and lakes, more reminiscent of Scotland (with sunshine!). Set amongst this spectacular, mountain scenery, on the edge of the National Park, yet only about half an hour from the sea and beautiful beaches, Su Gologone is something of a surprise.
Famous throughout Italy for its restaurant, Su Gologone serves amazing, traditional and typical Sardinian food - a gastronomic delight - and guests here will enjoy what must be the most authentic experience of Sard cuisine. Whether it is breakfast, dinner or lunch, enormous effort and skill go into producing and serving food, with most cooked and baked in the hotel's own kitchens. It often hosts weddings and local festivities, in its four dining rooms, and there is always a great atmosphere. No visit to Sardinia can really be complete without, at least, a visit for lunch and, at best a stay for life! We always stay here - it really is irresistible!
Colourful, stylish and individual, with lovely little touches, everywhere, there is an inner courtyard, with accommodation in five two-storey buildings - no one room is the same as another. There is an absolute profusion of flowers, climbers, trees and shrubs in the gardens and on the terraces. Wonderful antiques furnish Su Gologone's characterful and comfortable public rooms, which are filled with Sardinian art and locally crafted artefacts. Around every corner, there is always something to fascinate and please the eye.
The delightful swimming pool sits on a sunny, lawned terrace, which has glorious views over the surrounding countryside. Delicious light lunches are usually served nearby, in a lovely gazebo area, close to the pool. The open air jacuzzi, on an elevated corner of the terrace, is a real treat. There are also tennis courts, bikes, table-tennis and a small gym.
Giovanna, Hotel Su Gologone's lovely owner, has a passionate "hands-on " approach to her hotel. She is passionate, too, about the "real" Sardinia and its traditions. Her "Artisan quarter" welcomes guests to watch artists and artisans at work and to buy their goods. Various "tasting" experiences - wine, olive oil, tea, typical Sardinian bread, and so on - promote the real tastes of Sard food. Her "Terrace of Dreams" from May, once a week weather and skies permitting, is where you can see the stars through an electronic telescope, in the company of expert astronomers - a magical evening. These are innovative ideas for a hotel and are ones, which help to make a stay at Su Gologone so memorable and unique. Many guests are regulars and friendly staff offer a warm welcome to everyone. Delightful accommodation, very special food, trekking, visiting Sardinia's beautiful beaches, exploring the mountains or relaxing in the tranquility of this extraordinary landscape - this place has it all.
We always stay in Su Gologone, no matter where else we choose to go in Sardinia - it really is magical! Laura keeps reminding us that she hasn't been yet, but has always wanted to - no pressure there then!

"Could not fault this place at all, the food and the wine were superb and the atmosphere very relaxing. Loved going up to the bar at the top with the view of the mountains to just order a cocktail and enjoy a good book. " Wendy & Andy, Bakewell
