Set amongst spectacular mountain scenery, on the edge of the National Park, yet only about half an hour from the sea and beautiful beaches, SuGologone is somewhat of a surprise.
Famous throughout Italy for its restaurants, 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 Sardinian 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.
Colourful, stylish and individual, with lovely little touches, everywhere, there is an inner courtyard, with accommodation in five two-story 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.
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.
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.

*Note: The Nuragic civilisation, born and developed in Sardinia lasted from the Bronze Age (18th century BC) to the 2nd century AD. The civilisation's name derives from its most characteristic monument, the nuraghe, a tower-fortress type of construction built in numerous exemplars starting from about 1800 BC. Today some 7,000 nuraghes dot the Sardinian landscape.
