THINGS TO DO

Discovering an unspoilt paradise: Ogliastra

Ogliastra, a land of magical beauty, is on the east coast of Sardinia. It's the area between the summits of the Gennargentu and the Tyrrhenian Sea, and is considered one of the island's most fascinating regions. Ogliastra covers a huge area, more than 1800 km2, and has a small proportion of low-lying coastal plains while most of the territory is comprised of hills that dominate both the coast and the interior.

Ogliastra requires an attentive, inquisitive gaze from the visitor, not the usual quick glance of the tourist. A region where Man has lived for centuries in respect of and in harmony with Nature. There are many archaeological remains, with many nuraghi , domus de janas, fonti sacre, tombe dei giganti and menhir. On foot, by bike, on horseback, and by car or 4WD it's possible to go exploring and discover unforgettable places; you can walk from the mountains towards the sea following the route of underground streams in centuries-old woods, see flowers, wild animals, and reach incredibly-beautiful sandy bays.

But no description can fully describe the beauty and culture of Ogliastra and the hospitality of the people who live there. Only the interplay of images and scents can fully transmit Ogliastra's magic and harmony.
