“Amazing hospitality”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2012

As soon as we arrived, we realised that this place was not your average tourist trap. Our flight had been delayed, and we didn't get to the Podere until nine at night. Antonella, the lovely, friendly, polyglot and incredibly efficient manager showed us to our villina up the hill, and while we settled in, made sure that the restaurant stayed open for us. Not a problem: the guys there were as friendly as Antonella, and even though we were the only people in the place at that hour, they took pleasure in cooking to order and explaining the local dishes of which they are justifiably proud.
Everything served is grown/reared on the estate, and we were lucky enough to be adopted by the farmworkers (inquisitive, outgoing kids help). On Good Friday, they invited us to their workers' lunch, eaten in the sunshine among the farm buildings, with pasta, fish, ricotta and honey, wine and grappa. Our twelve-year-old son Daniel, a carnivore but not a Catholic, wondered where the meat course was; come back for lunch on Wednesday, they said. But first you have to help kill what you're going to eat. So from seven to twelve on the Tuesday, he learned to take responsibility for his meat-eating....they've got pictures of him in a butcher's apron and holding large knives on their website.
You don't have to get down and dirty, of course; Sardinians come from miles around to eat the Podere's suckling pig and never hear a squeal. The anecdote is simply to show how willing these wonderful people are to share their lives with interested guests.
The accommodation is simply but comfortably furnished, spotlessly clean and well equipped. The swimming pools would be very inviting in summer, but only our children dared them at Easter.
A car is essential if you want to visit the beautiful region around: Alghero itself (15 minutes), Bosa, the north-west, the mountains inland...
The holiday was not budget, but very good value for money. We'll be back.

Room Tip: Go up the hill; the accommodation at the bottom naturally has less impressive views.

We stayed in one of the two-bed apartments in the first week of June last year (2011). The weather was pretty bad all week, but the apartment was lovely and comfortable and allowed us a comfortable base from which to chase the sun around the island.

The manageress was great, the location close enough to Alghero but far enough away to feel away from it all. The views were fantastic, a lovely pool if a little chilly.

We really do like Alghero as a destination - great vibe to the town with some very good restaurants, very good public beach and it's a great base for exploring the north and west of the island.

My tiniest criticism would be that you don't get a clean during the week - not that I was really that fussed. But for near on £1000 for the week out of season, it would have been nice to just have some spray disinfectant to clean the loo - with a 4 year old son, pretty essential! I just ended up using my hand sanitiser on a piece of loo roll!

But that really is the smallest thing and it certainly wouldn't stop us from returning!

Me and my girlfriend stayed in the one bedroomed apartment for one week in September 2011. The apartment was perfect for two and the shared pool was only 3m away.
The estate has its own restaurant which serves beautiful food, most of which comes from the working farm. We had the suckling pig and potatoes from the restaurant and it was one of the nicest meals we have ever had. For breakfast the friendly farm workers supplied us with free eggs, which was nice.
Lovely grounds to walk in and see all the animals on the farm. The views from the top of the estate are very nice. The pool is great and never busy. The estate is very quiet, calm and relaxing.
If you want to venture off the estate you will need to rent a car. The woman who manages the appartments is very helpful and even gave us a lift to the airport to collect our hire car.
It was the first time I had driven abroad and it wasn't stressful at all. In a car it was 2mins to the supermarket, 10mins to the beach and 20mins to Alghero.
We really did have a wonderful holiday and will go back!

We stayed for 2 weeks at Monte Sixeri with three generations of our family, amongst which 3 small children. It was truly a very comfortable and luxurious place to be, with a spectacular view from the terrace and we relaxed amid the beautiful swimming pools, gardens and playgrounds. We loved the animals, who roam around another part of the farm; our youngest particularly liked the pigs and the donkeys. Naturally, this comes at a price.

It is not far to Alghero (~15 min), with its cosy city centre (but everything around the centre seemed less inviting to us - I was not impressed by the hotels around the centre, nor the Lido beaches). Monte Sixeri is close to the sea (~3km); by car, we explored there the natural paradise of green hills, sea, cliffs and charming beaches. In terms of landscape, this part of Sardegna is spectacularly beautiful.

The best element to mention about Monte Sixeri is the staff. We tremendously enjoyed the contact with Antonella, Giovanni, Alberto and Salvatore, who have shown us and even tried to teach us how they make the many traditional products of Sardegna (ham, saucages, wine, oil, amaretti...). We could not have wished for a warmer welcome!

We stayed in the 1-bedroom apartment for 2 nights. The apartment was lovely - spotlessly clean, plenty of space, comfortable and had everything we needed; great outdoor swimming pool (shared but was never busy, lots of loungers and parasols). Beautiful surroundings and very peaceful countryside setting. The on-site restaurant was delicious and very reasonably priced (2 people, 3 courses, mineral water & wine 50 EUR) - the suckling pig (a sardinian specialiaty) was amazing! Staff very friendly and helpful. Drive into Alghero was approx. 20 mins and parking there was no problem......from what we saw of Alghero am very glad we decided to stay at Monte Sixeri rather than in a more central hotel. Would definitely recommend!

We loved the 5 days we spent in the apartment overlooking the farm, enjoying the green of the mountains, the sun, and the beautiful flowers. The apartments were new, clean, and well furnished. The swimming pools were beautiful, although it was a bit cool for swimming. We were amazed at all that was raised on the farm. From pigs, sheep, chickens, and mules to olive oil, and wine, it was fascinating to learn about the farm. The restaurant, Le Pinnette, is an amazing experience, not to be missed. The staff was wonderful, especially Antonella. She is originally from Australia, so we could communicate in English. She was so helpful and brought us eggs from the chickens and a cable so that we could get internet access. The only possible negative is that it is about 20 minutes outside of Alghero, so you have to drive in to town for other restaurants or shopping. However, there is a small grocery store just a few minutes from the farm, which met all of our needs. Our only regret is that we didn't stay longer. It was a fabulous experience!

Room Tip: Stay in the Il Borgo section of the estate
