“Haven in the mountains of Sardinia”
Reviewed 23 March 2013

We booked knowing it was going to be quiet and they lost our booking, but they opened the hotel for us, went the extra mile to make us warm and comfortable - very welcoming. The food was good and they made up a wonderful log fire when the weather turned wintry and we were snowed in.
The team couldn't have been better - welcoming, full of great service and extremely friendly when you wanted to be! we had a really pleasant day sitting in the sala, in front of a traditional log fire, chatting, reading and generally relaxing.
The room was large, with a generous bathroom which was very clean and well-equipped. Wifi in the room was excellent and free. The food was good, Sardinian fare - all cooked on-site and with a brilliant pizza oven, too.
Would definitely go again, perhaps in the summer when it would be warmer and the walks around the area more accessible.

Reviewed 19 June 2006

We stayed in Fioni in early June. It made a great base for touring the area. June is out of season for the area as Fioni is a Ski resort. We had our hotel to ourselves. We stayed at the Sa Orte. The building had been refurbished and the finishes were nice and it was really clean. The hotel rooms were pretty dark though and did not have views over the mountains as it was set in a back street.
They are not used to English visitors here and had quite a few problems with the language as we do not speak Italian. Fortunately the lovely gentleman who owns the Barbagia restaurant speaks excellnt French so we had a great time. Would recommend the food there too, excellent and modest prices.

Reviewed 20 February 2006

We stayed at the Sa Orte Hotel (has their own website) for a short break.
The rooms are lovely (we booked the suite which was very competitive and perfect for anyone travelling with children).
Fonni itself was (like most of the mountain area in February) pretty closed up. We drove through village after village of shuttered up towns.
Athough there wasn't snow when we were there I would recommend hiring snow chains along with the car (we tried to but they weren't there on arrival at Olbia airport) if you are visiting during the winter. You need to be a confident driver to cope with some of the mountain roads - narrow passes with fast local drivers on the wrong side as well as herds of cattle, sheep and goats being left their feed on the roads.
The hotel itself - one member of staff speaks some english - we didn't speak Italian so it proved interesting - but we got by. We booked half board (bread based continental breakfast) and choice of 1 from 2 (starter and main) at dinner. The fixed menu was a bit limited (pasta or pasta for starter, beef or beef sausage for main) but the hotel were accommodating and I ordered a pizza (5E) one evening - not a problem. The staff were very friendly and the hotel has been fitted out to a very high standard - but don't expect English TV or room service - this is a family hotel with a restaurant popular with Italians. Parking is around the back of the hotel and again requires a confident driver to navigate the roads!
There is a pizza restaurant and small supermarket nearby.
We recommend the hotel. They were so sweet to us!
