My Fiancee and I have just returned from the Paradise that is Sardinia. Bright amongst the superlatives of our memories must be the Rifugio Gorroppu - what a fabulous place.The minute we followed the small track to the ledge on which it is built, we knew it would be a memorable stay.
Angelo greeted us, not really knowing any words of English and me with no Sardinian, but the rapport was instant. The welcome very warm and hospitable - just like all of Sardinia. Our room was magnificent, perched on the edge of a vast wilderness, with only 3 or 4 lights twinkling in the dark.
Madellena was such a lovely hostess for dinner, serving such hearty meals that it almost broke my heart to leave any of the food she had prepared. Let me tell you - I can eat - being a born and bred grumpy Yorkshireman, but even I flinched at the size of the portions on offer. Not just the quantity, but the quality.
It truly was as if we were at home with family - a magical experience that will live long in both our memories.
Many much larger and more oppulent hotel establishments could take tips from the Two Angelo's, Madellena and every connected with this glorious place. Holidays are about memories and the warmth of the welcome received, not just about having a Jacuzzi bath and a formal dining room!
I commend the whole experience that is the Rifugio Gorropu. If you're lucky enough to be in this corner of the world please try out the hospitality - you won't regret it!
