Experience Barbagia

We are in the heart of Sardinia made up of small villages, genuine food and nature, elegant and wild at the same time; the homeland of cannonau and of ancient traditions still very much felt today.


Gorropu canyon is the deepest in Italy and among the most spectacular in Europe with walls up to 450 metres high.

In one of the wildest and most unspoiled contexts of Sardinia, the Gorropu gorge is a monument of nature of erosive origin, caused by the waters of the Flumeneddu river. 

We recommend that you plan an excursion with our expert guides.

Golfo di Orosei

You can reach the pristine sea of the Gulf of Orosei just thirty minutes by car from the Monte Maccione hotel.

Famous for the spectacular sheer walls that give way to turquoise waters and white beaches, among the most beautiful in the Mediterranean.

Forty kilometres from Cala Gonone (Dorgali) to Santa Maria Navarrese (Baunei) with enchanting coves: Fuili, Luna, Sisine, Biriola, Mariolu and Goloritzè.

The historic centres of Barbagia.

Here in Barbagia time has stood still, leaving the language and ancient traditions unchanged. We can recommend the towns to visit at any time of the year. 

Orgosolo, famous for its wonderful murals; Oliena and Dorgali where you can try the cannonau; Mamojada where you can visit the Museum of Mediterranean Masks; the Multimedia Museum del Canto a Tenores in Bitti; taste the Sardinian flower in Gavoi.

But above all, lose yourself in the magic of the historic centres of these timeless villages.

What can you say about this wonder... I'm in love with this hotel. Friendly staff. What can I say about the restaurant - all local products! Try the culurgiones, seadas and yoghurt for breakfast. We had a room with a terrace with a breathtaking view. We will definitely be back and recommend it to everyone.

We were greeted with kindness by the staff, the place is charming and quiet, tastefully furnished and very comfortable rooms, the staff are always present to offer tourist information and advice, and the breakfast is generous. I recommend the hotel restaurant, a typical Sardinian cuisine done well. Excellent value for money.

In the midst of a beach holiday, a couple of days immersed in mountain nature in the beautiful cool air after so much heat was needed. A truly enchanting place, a basic building but still very clean with excellent food and moderate prices. I definitely recommend it to those who want to walk in the countryside and in absolute peace and quiet!
