“A jewel in the crown of Orosei”
Reviewed 5 July 2017 for a stay in June 2017

people found this review helpful

Hora Est apartment is excellantly located in Piazza Sas Animas in the heart of the Centro Storico of Orosei. The historical apartment on the top floor of a building circa 1883, has been recently refurbished to an exacting standard whilst still retaining all of its former character including beautiful hand painted floor tiles tipical of the region. The studio apartment with bedroom on the mezannine floor is cleverly designed to maximise use of space whilst still not feeling as if it is a studio!
At the front of the apartment a balcony with full height doors provides a view of the Piazza, whilst at the rear a fantastic large terrace with shade overlooks the town below and the coastline a little over a kilometre away.
Facilities and equipment including air conditioning are all new and again of an excellant standard providing all you would need for a short or long stay.
The region is blessed with some of the best sandy beaches in the Mediterranean as well as remote coves acessible by boat to the south where the mountains of the national nature reserve reaches the sea.
Orosei has a selection of good local shops selling local produce as well as restaurants to cater for most tastes.
Francesco is a very generous and helpfull host who assisted us whenever we required, ensuring our holiday was more something to remember!
Grazie Francesco

Reviewed 22 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

I was on a research trip and stayed in this is a lovely apartment right in the centre of Orosei. Beautiful views over the town and the sea. Very comfortable. No lift so be prepared for three flights of stairs. Friendly and very helpful owner. Merci Franco for looking after us. Jane and Nick

“Wonderful Apartment”
Reviewed 22 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

This apartment is beautiful. In an old building in the center of old Orosei. It has a balcony AND a large terrace. The terrace looks out over the whole town to the sea and the balcony looks out on the old city center. The kitchen is well equipped with utensils and has a very modern induction range. The bed is in a loft over the kitchen and bath and the bed is the most comfortable we have EVER had in Italy. I think it is memory foam. There is free parking just across from the building. It is very convenient but sometimes you have to wait for a spot.
Franco was very nice. We had to wait for him to get back to town to check in, but it was worth it! There are some extra charges for bed linens, towels and electricity, but the overall price was still incredibly reasonable. We would stay in this apartment again in a heartbeat.

“BRILLIANT”
Reviewed 13 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

This apartment is fantastic. It is located at the top of a very old building in one of those lovely narrow streets. Everything is brand new and very clean. It also has a great bed. Franco the owner is very helpful. Parking is not a problem as there is a small town square opposite. The apartment has a great balcony with loungers, table and chairs with a brilliant view of the lovely town of Oresei. The only problem I can for see is once people get to know about this little gem it will be very hard to book. Would not hesitate in going back.
