We stayed here 2 nights at the end of our Sardinian trip. It was a little difficult to find - you actually pass it on the left hand side whilst on the main highway going west after the first exit for Iglesias. To get there you have to take the first exit for Iglesias (coming from Cagliari) and follow the signs for the town centre and after a couple of hundred yards and a mini roundabout there is a small sign on the right hand side and you turn down a small road on the left hand side and go under the highway. After going under the highway its about the 2nd road on the right. Ok that aside it was a lovely hotel - lovely clean traditional rooms - good landscaping, a pool, good views, really lovely food for breakfast and dinner - napkins and tablecloths, good wines and friendly staff in the restaurant and a particularly friendly reception chap who helped me find a telephone number for an old friend on the Italian mainland and he even offered me the use of his phone to call him. Breakfast in particular was plentiful and unusual compared to breakfasts in our other 3 hotels or agriturismos during this trip as there was just so much choice and it was good quality. The breakfast coffees came in different sizes - we chose large - but this wasnt just large - they were absolutely ginormous and so delicious! This reception chap also was very helpful in giving us local information - places of interest etc. Even although it is near the motorway we didnt really hear the traffic. The hotel is about 3 km south of Iglesias town which is a mixture of old and new. There was a cheesemaker nearby - with tours and tastes. Nearby countryside is stunning.There are lots of old mines in this area - think all closed nowadays - but you can get tours into some of them eg in Masua - and there are coastal walks joining villages together, some with ruins of old mining villages en route. Northwest its about 25 mins to Masua where you can get boat trips to the pan de zucchero stack/rock that sits out in the bay and about 40 mins drive to the beautiful beach of Cala Domestica further north. Southwest, its about 50 mins to a very pretty small village to the no 1 restaurant on trip advisor for this area (also outstanding where we booked for lunch), and its only about 15 mins to the nearest beach directly west at the coast. So great location for this very unspoilt area if you dont feel like packing and unpacking every few days. This hotel was also an easy drive from Cagliari airport on the main highway - just under 1hr. We would definitey return to this hotel.
