If you're going to come here, don't unless you want to go half board. There are about 4-5 double rooms on the farm, and while they are clean and they have air con, they are nothing amazing. They dont for example have a soap products, and are fairly small.
However, if you stay on an agriturismo, you should not be expecting a 4-star hotel. Staying here is all about the food. Our dinners were between 6 and 10 courses depending on the day. Each day was a jug of wine, a plate of cheese and meats, then veg, then pasta, then meat, then a desert pastry, then fruit, then coffee, then shots of local alcohol. The difference in the number of courses was how many meat courses they served that day (it's usually either goat or pork from the farm, but could include tasty intestines!) Breakfast is simple but large, including pastries, coffee, fresh yoghurt, bread and jams.
The location is great, overlooking the bay of cala gonone. Superb. It's easy to find and get in and out. The chef, a lady, speaks english, but you rarely see her as she's busy. The waitresses dont really speak much. There's also no way to book except phoning them up (i think) but i did that the day before we arrived, and it was easy.
