1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2
Riola Sardo, Province of Oristano, Sardinia
A small stable, converted into a double bedroom with bathroom and a simple open kitchen in the middle of a quiet orange garden, ideal for nature loving couples, is built very close to a well, where it is possible to cool wine in a basket and enjoy the fresh breeze. The ecofriendly house, made of unfired earth brics, benefits of the use of its own entrance and a wood oven. Within walking distance of shops, bars, pizzerias and a bank, it is the perfect place to forget the hussle and bustle of modern living. <BR>For those who love water sports, archeological sites, food or simply lounge around the church square with an icecream, relaxing into a mediterranean pace of life.<BR>Just over an hour from the main airoports of Cagliari and Alghero, Riola is placed close to many quartz and sand beaches, salt ponds with flamingoes, the mo...

Lovely place, quiet and pleasantly rustic. The outdoor kitchen could pose a problem if you came in the winter or when the weather was bad. The village it's located in is small, so don't expect much in the way of excitement, but it's a good location for a quiet unwind.

About the neighbourhood
Riola offers many activities all year long. During the summer there are many festivals and music, or you can simply enjoy the laidback atmosphere of Riola's main square and taste a scoop of the famous lemon sorbet 'carapigna'. On 26th july massive firework display is shot to thank Sant Anna for the wheat harvest. Generally the village feasts correspond to the agricultural cycle: in november, the wood barrels are opened to share the new wine. The grinding olive places offer a sample of the new oil. <BR>In the winter the most famous attraction is a horse race(Sartiglia), ridden with symbolism.<BR><BR>For those more inclined to experience nature it is possible to hike, cycle and play golf all year long. In the summer evening you can enjoy a horse ride on the beac... more
