The Hotel Su Gologone is located in the east coast of Sardinia, 7 km. far from Oliena, 16 km. from Dorgali and 25 km. from Cala Gonone.
Immersed in nature near the Su Gologone source (400 meters) and the Cedrino river (450 meters) is surrounded by Mediterranean maquis with lawns, myrtles, oleanders.
The passion the hotel has for Sardinian culture starts in their craft studios. Embroidery, textiles, ceramics, jewelry, woodwork and wrought iron objects, all created by skilled master weavers and artisans, are displayed across the Botteghe d’Arte. Some pieces are limited editions; others are unique.
Everything used to furnish Su Gologone can be purchased here. Displayed in a beautiful piece of 1940s furniture, there are also infusions, essential oils and bath products made using aromatic herbs like myrtle, juniper, helichrysum reared in the garden.
Why is Sardinia so easy to love? Perhaps because the sea is more crystal-clear than it is in the Caribbean, because the fragrances of this land reach your nostrils before you've even stepped off the ferry, because there are places where silence reigns, because the Sardinian dialect is as crunchy as the local flatbread, because Sardinia is not just for the summer, it is exceptionally beautiful in every season... and few people have as yet discovered all that it has to offer.
If you are strongly attracted by the wonderful sea off the Sardinian coast (and who wouldn't be?), Dorgali should be your destination of choice. A 20-minute drive will take you to Cala Cartoe, in the Gulf of Orosei: fine sand, water with an unmistakable greenish-blue shimmer, and rocks edged with lush vegetation punctuated by the wild beauty of juniper trees. Travel on for another 7 km and you will come to Cala Gonone, where alongside the white sand and the magical colours of the sea, you can visit the delightful cave of Bue Marino, which starting from the coast burrows its way through the mountain for several kilometres.
As you stroll through the quaint old town of Oliena (7 km from Su Gologone), along the cobbled streets and amid ancient houses resting one on top of another, as if they were protecting each other, you will have no difficulty coming across the elderly women of the town who, to this day, still wear the traditional costume known as su hustumene.
Orosei is an enchanting town located 32 km from Su Gologone and just 2 km from the sea, where the ultra-white sandy beaches are framed by pine forest, Mediterranean maquis and rocks of pink granite and basalt. The centre of town, with its ancient buildings and churches, is a delight, and the local festivals are not to be missed.
Celebrated author Grazie Deledda set her most famous novel, Canne al vento (English title: Reeds in the Wind), in Galtellì (27 km from Su Gologone). As well as admiring one of the most characteristic and best-preserved old towns to be found anywhere on the island, you can also visit the author's home and her "Literary Park", which meanders its way along the path from which she drew inspiration for her masterpiece.
Anyone visiting this part of Sardinia is duty-bound to take a trip to San Teodoro and its lagoon (79 km from Su Gologone), which is a veritable birdwatchers' paradise. The seaboard here – one of the most enchanting places on the Tyrrhenian coast – is a marine protected area, with exceptionally interesting diving sites.
Orgosolo is located in a hilly, mountainous area 23 km from Su Gologone. The town, which affords spectacular views of the natural world, is famous for its murales: 150 paintings that embellish and enrich the walls of the houses, and are a real draw for tourists. Traditions remain strong here, and during the numerous local festivals you will see the inhabitants sporting traditional costumes made by local embroiderers using brocade, floral lacework and yarns produced by the silkworms that have been raised here since time immemorial.
