We stayed in this agriturismo for three nights in August, having arranged our stay over the phone on very short notice, and were given one of their self-contained double rooms overlooking the farm ("mini-chalets" with French doors opening to the exterior). The bedroom and shower seem to have been built recently and were kept very clean and serviced daily. The rooms don't have a television, but this was in fact refreshing and we didn't miss it at all (although a mini-fridge would have been nice).
The main attraction of this place is the home-cooked quality food served for dinner (Sardinian breakfasts are minimal wherever you stay). The evening meal would usually consist of a number of courses, starting with antipasti, followed by pasta, a main course, fruits and dessert, accompanied by a generous karaffe of the house red, and rounded off by as much after-dinner liqueurs as one can manage after such a feast. Although the patron didn't speak any English, he was affable and tried to spend time (drinking) with the guests.
The location is remote, but there are quite a few quiet bays a few minutes drive away (as long as you don't mind climbing down some steep slopes). We'd say on the farm there's not much to do, but we were happy just reading on the lawn outside our room or just watching the sun set in the evening.
To summarise, we absolutely loved this place, and if you fancy a lazy week in Sardinia with real Italian food, this is just the thing.
