“Superb!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2014 via mobile

Friendly, family run rural hotel.....Francesca and her husband are perfect hosts.....excellent home made meals which are made to order.....be sure to try Francesca's breakfast cakes....so delicious! The rooms are large, spotlessly clean and comfortable. A short drive to a variety of beaches depending on what you're looking for. We combined a 3 night stay here with a similar stay in Bosa on west side of Island and this proved a perfect combination for us.

Stayed June 2014, travelled as a couple

Francesca and Angelo welcomed us to their beautiful rural hotel and restaurant. The panoramic views from the bungalows were superb with amazing sunsets. Francesca and her mother cooked some wonderful dinners especially the fresh fish and homemade pasta with asparagus and almonds. The rooms were spacious, well furnished with the most comfortable beds. We went out of season at the end of April so the weather wasn't great but we visited some beautiful beaches with white sand and turquoise sea. I can highly recommend Cala Brandinchi.

Room Tip: Beautiful views from bungalow No. 6

On a hill overlooking a turquoise bay and island with a backdrop of rugged, granite mountains, Borgo Alba Barona is a perfect place to stay in beautiful Sardinia.. The rooms and bathrooms - lots of hot water - are in large and airy bungalows. Beds are king-sized and there is a good wardrobe charged with lots of hangers. Outside is a shady verandah equipped with sunloungers. Breakfasts are excellent - fresh juice, fruit, breads, cheese, eggs, perfect coffee - setting you up for a day exploring North Sardinia's bronze-age remains or lazing on one of the perfect sandy beaches within a few minutes drive of the hotel/B&B. Francesca and Angelo are excellent hosts who made us very welcome and offered plenty of helpful advice without fuss. If you don't feel like getting in the car in the evening, the evening meals Francesca cooks are excellent value and delicious with wine included. I would recommend Borgo Alba Barona to anyone and everyone without hesitation or reservation. Go on, book, you know you want to!

Room Tip: All the rooms are quiet and private with lovely views.

We could not fault the stay. Francesca and Angelos were superb hosts and were attentive to our needs. The view was superb from the hill top. We had large continental breakfasts every morning with addtional eggs and bacon, cakes if we wanted. dinner was home cooked and fresh, very reasonably priced. Do give them an email before you arrive to get directions especially if you are arriving at night. It was a lasting memory. Wish we could have stayed longer. Book here you will not regret it.

15 mins from Golfo Arancia and the centre of Olbia, 20 mins from the airport - perfectly placed! This rural .B and B is a peaceful haven with distant sea views. Rooms are very comfortable with big beds and big bathrooms with really hot showers -things not often found in our experience. Francesca and Angelo are welcoming hosts serving up good breakfasts: eggs, cheese, fruit and cake to set you up for the day and Francesca's evening meals are superb: great ingredients and flavours. Choose two courses: pasta and a fish or meat course for 25 euros, or just have one course for less. We found a pasta shared and a main course were more than enough. Vegetarians are catered for too.
Wi-fi is available free in the dining room.
Go there, you won't regret it.

A short drive takes you up a hill to a rural area where you find the hotel consisting of bungalows giving you privacy and cosy B&B feeling. The area is quiet and there is a magnificent view on the see. The owners are very nice and driven to deliver an excellent service. The rooms are brandnew, very clean, have excellent beds, a large bathroom, TV, nice furniture... The owners present you a splendid breakfast in the morning accompanied by some travel hints for whom is willing to view the area. A short drive takes you too nice beaches, cosy small towns, ports in the wonderful Sardegna.

Room Tip: All rooms have the same excellent view on the see.
