Strategic position to reach famous places and wonderful beachs: 40 minutes by car from Alghero, 50 from Stintino and only 2 hours from Porto Cervo and Costa Smeralda. It's suitable for holidays of true relaxation both seaside and cultural, gastronomic and sports. The house is spread over three levels and has been recently restored preserving the characteristic structural elements of the era such as a stone staircase, wrought iron railing, flooring, fireplace, wood oven, where you can find the essence of the Sardinian spirit . During the really hot days of summer it's possible to enjoy dry and fresh air climate, perfect to sleep. Guests have access to the entire home. The presence of the stairs makes the home difficult for people with walking problems and reduced motor skills. Within walking distance of the house there are several shops and businesses, including grocery, stationery and pharmacy. Close to the many scenic spots from which you can admire scenery of unique beauty such as the Gulf of Stintino, the island of Asinara and the Sardinian hinterland. A few hundred meters away there is a bank with an ATM, a fuel distributor, a pastry shop, a bar and a pizzeria. In the country there are all the necessary commercial activities, tennis courts and nature trails. You can also buy handmade products such as Osilo's bread and Pecorino cheese directly from the producers. Location of great tranquility, away from city traffic and confusion, but strategically located to reach the beautiful beaches of the north coast from Castelsardo to Stintino and the west coast with Argentiera, the splendid Alghero and its beaches, the caves of Neptune and Capocaccia . In 2 hours you can reach the wonderful Costa Smeralda with Porto Cervo and Porto Rotondo, or San Teodoro with La Cinta and Brandinchi beachs, or Orosei’s Gulf with its gorgeus beachs of cala mariolu and cala sisine. At 100 km the beautiful archipelago of Maddalena and the ferry to Corsica. A short distance from the numerous archaeological sites including the Nuraghe valley with the Nuraghe Santu Antine, the only specimen in Europe of the pre-nuragic altar (zikkurat Monte d'Accoddi), the Calancoi necropolis, the domus de janas and the basilica Of Saccargia. It's possible to practice many sports like tennis, horse riding, trekking, cycling, mountain biking and motorcycling. Ideal for sport climbing thanks to the numerous paths on the wide cliff near the village and located in a beautiful landscape. Osilo hosts sports events such as autoslalom and numerous events of ancient Sardinian tradition such as sheep festival, costume rides, ring race, antique artes (antique crafts and tastings in the country's streets). Osilo is renowned for pecorino cheese, typical loaf and typical Sardinian desserts. Alghero is full of attractions and entertainment, paella and lobster in front of the sea on the ancient ramparts.
