Although some way from the town and a fairly long walk to the beach, this self-contained property has a myriad of facilities that make it popular both with families and couples. The rooms are mainly located in blocks to the rear of the property and have been designed to blend in to the hillside incorporating the trees and rock formations. Although many of the facilities are on the ground floor, the restaurant is upstairs and there are numerous steps and slopes through the grounds.
Although clearly visible from both directions, the property stands 600m back from the main road with a traditional stone wall at its perimeter and bordering the drive way which leads up to a shaded car park and a broad forecourt. Shrubs and trees form a barrier between the drive and the 10 wide steps up to the front entrance of the 2-storey main building. The lower floor has stone-clad walls while the upper is a pastel pink with large windows.
Property type: Hotel
Balcony/Terrace: Most rooms
The sliding doors open onto a large bright foyer with a mirrored reception counter to the right. Arched walls lead into different lounge areas all of which feature sharp white walls and ceilings as well as polished brown tiled floors. Furnished with deep cushioned armchairs and sofas, the bar is located towards the end. A stairway leads up to the 1st floor restaurant, which has study wooden high-backed chairs at predominantly square tables and windows with a distant sea view.
The rooms are located in 2 and 3-storey blocks around the terraced grounds and reached by pathways across the lawns and steps up through low stone terrace walls. Each block is terracotta or yellow in colour and many of the terraces and balconies are draped in plants. An abundance of trees provide some good natural shade and the existing rocks have been incorporated in to the design. The pool deck is furnished with lightweight sunloungers and parasols and is located just to the rear of the main building.
Area Type: Located at the end of a short drive from the main coastal road 6 km to the north of the town in an area called Le Conia. There is a tourist shuttle ‘ road train’ in to the town centre where there are restaurants and bars. Across the road and beyond a strip of farmland is the Mannena Beach, which continues in to the resort. Transfer time from Olbia Airport 50 minutes, Alghero Airport 150 minutes.
