Even if you dont stay here for the horse activities , it is a nice country hotel with spacious rooms in converted outbuildings. The ambience is relaxing and sympathetic to its surroundings. There are extensive grounds/gardens and a good looking pool with a solarium. Unfortunately this wasnt heated despite it being half indoors and only the son was able to swim in it - in a hotel in this price range/standard you would expect this not to be an issue even if only solar heated. The breakfast was standard for italian type hotels and could have benefitted from more of a 'farm' touch with more fresh bread for instance. Snack type lunch was available and a set menu evening meal - all the guests have to be seated at 8pm for service. The meal was very nice but pricing/set menu options meant that we only did this once during our stay. There are restaurants within 10 mins drive in the nearby towns next to the dual carriageway and as you are out in the countryside you will definately need a car for access (IMHO exploring with a car is a must in Sardinia and the roads were very well maintained). Then you have the horses - for a horse mad daughter this was heaven on earth. Riding options varied from riding/jumping/acrobatic lessons on site , roaming freely in the gardens, long and short hacks and day/multiday trips. There were fields of horses and it was safe enough for her to go off and help round up the horses, groom then ride without me having to be physically present , which meant i could keep the other kids entertained with walking, nuraghe visiting, swimming etc Staff and owner were extremely pleasant and helpful, even though it was almost the end of their season ( closes november for the winter). Would definately stay here again.
