Descriptions

The Holiday home

In the valley at the feet of Mount Tricoli behind the village of Lanusei, in a private land of 23 hectares and surrounded by greenery, the owner has built with his own hands a wonderful replica of a truly breathtaking Nuraghe ... the Nuraghe, once it represented the center of social life of these tribes that have left us also other megalithic constructions such as necropolis, tombs and places of worship ... the Nuraghi are virtually unique works of their kind. They are the largest and best preserved megalithic monuments in all of Europe, but millennia have not given us a solution to the enigma of their existence.

Su Nuraxi, this object lies at 500 meter from Domus Tegas and 300 meter from Domus Nunziata, in the same property. Eventually you might stay in both houses with some close friends, just to spend your vacation together !! you are welcome upon 12 persons for the three houses. Surrounded by an own Mediterranean property area of 23 hectare. Porches and terraces with different BBQ's.

These are lovely vacation homes situated at 15 km from the beautiful beaches of Cardedu. In this large property, the owner Mario built a soccer field near his house, This is only meant for personal use, not for outsider persons. A place where your children could rampage go. In this domain, at 20 minutes walk away from your cozy vacationhouse, a river runs through Mario's terrain. Here are a few beautiful, nature-made pools, there where your children can bathe.

Want to have some fun? Walk around the garden area and some farm animals will welcome you with a lot of interesting sounds, smells, and sights. Why visit Lanusei? With its mild and temperate climate, healthy air and fairytale scenic landscapes, Lanusei has now gained a prime position as a holiday resort in Sardinia, not just because of its historic and natural treasures but also for the intense cultural life that takes place in certain periods of the year.

Arguably the most well-known pieces the Nuragic left behind were their nuraghi structures or towers, of which approximately seven thousand have been discovered upon the island .. but up to thirty thousand may have been constructed. Although similar in features to many other structures throughout the Mediterranean region, Sardinian constructs were most original and stately in their formation. These structures are circular, most often created with a flat, truncated rooftop similar to those of other ancient populations, but with the earliest of this classification dating back to 20th century

Some believe these types of rooftops were likely maintained and used as terraces. Others, however, form a conical bee-hive shape on top. Minimally-dressed stones were applied in cylindrical succession to form the building within which was typically a corridor, an inner space (some nearly 40 feet in diameter) and a stairwell leading to upper levels accessed via a ground level entrance. Some more intricate dwellings additionally feature wells, ground-level silos or other spaces presumably for the storage of liquid or dry foodstuffs.

Sardinia and its wild nature, large stone monuments and nuraghi (tower-fortresses) away from crowded beaches is a charming and mysterious place to visit. This trip from Cagliari to Nuoro is to discover the evidence of a millennial civilization and the traditions and customs of this marvellous people. Not very much is known of the ancient Nuragic civilization, except that it was a people of shepherds and farmers grouped into small communities who lived in Sardinia for 8 centuries.

The purpose of these structures, the latter of which display increased mastery and efficiency in assembly, has been debated (from grain silos or observatories to temples or fortresses), but artifacts discovered within some (including stone tools, loom weights, hearths, cooking vessels, spindle whorls, and animal bones, to name a few) lead many to the conclusion that the nuraghi were utilized as homes or for predominantly household activities. Several of such towers with varying complexity built in close proximity to one another with a common well and courtyard, usually surrounded by megalithic walls, are widely agreed upon to have likely been bastions, necessary for territorial protection in the age.

Most complex groupings that developed into settlements, have also featured numerous huts of greatly varied complexity, many of which had basin-like arrangements around the walls for water to likely be held, spaces of enclosure for animals, antemurals and turrets with even lookout towers and other such structures of defense. Pastures, wooded areas, mines, religious temples and other assets may have accompanied most of the more complex systems. Sadly, many of the original structures are now in ruins.

Location and surroundings of object

Why visit Lanusei? With its mild and temperate climate, healthy air and fairytale scenic landscapes, Lanusei has now gained a prime position as a holiday resort in Sardinia, not just because of its historic and natural treasures but also for the intense cultural life that takes place in certain periods of the year.

Splendid old buildings, neat squares, a breathtaking scenic backdrop; Lanusei, the capital of the Province of Ogliastra, is located in the east of Sardinia on the ridges between Mount Gennargentu and the coast, and betwixt the green of the hinterland and the deep-blue sea. It enjoys a magnificent position set in the midst of natural wonders and easily-reachable sites of great tourist and cultural interest.

Lanusei and Ogliastra true and genuine place to be. Let yourself go; be delighted by the limpid colours of its skies and beaches, its rough vegetation’s stimulating scents; taste and discover its millennial culture. Ogliastra's cuisine is both simple and refined although its great variety is discovered only by those who have the desire to immerse themselves into a timeless world.

Throughout all of Ogliastra, from north to south, it’s not easy finding fast food restaurants where you can “eat and run”. Rather, you will find places where you can stop and relax, where you can savour typical Sardinian gastronomical products, accompanied by the warmth and hospitality of its people.

If you have never tasted the liqueur made of myrtle, nor smelled the honey-perfumed seadas’ or the fragrance of pane carasau, then you are ready for this journey. The entire area has signs of the past, traces belonging to the most remote times. However, it is the most recent history that has had a significant, instrumental effect on the town, already perceptible at the end of the nineteenth-century.

The Salesiani's role in culture, with the opening of schools and high grammar schools, had a positive social impact, thus making the town an important aggregation centre for surrounding towns. We suggest visiting the Salesiani's College, the attached church of St. John Bosco, the library and the archives building. It has been the bishop's see since 1927. The cathedral is dedicated to St. Mary Magdalene who is honoured with big celebrations the last Sunday of July.

The other important festivities are for Don Bosco (first Sunday in June) and for the Saints Cosima and Damian (Sept. 27th), celebrated in the homonymous small, rural church. Lanusei a small hilly town renowned for its invigorating healthy climate, Lanusei is set as an amphitheatre dominating a valley, the coast and the sea. Surrounded by a forest of oaks, it also enjoys a privileged central position and can make its own resources and those of neighbouring villages readily available to tourists.

It is the most important town for culture in Ogliastra, seat of the diocese and the religious college of the Salesiani, the law court and also the hospital. It has a wealth of cultural centres: museums, churches and monuments testify its resplendent past. Worth mentioning is the Astrological Observatory “”, open to the public, situated on the top of Monte Armidda an ideal location, free from light pollution.

Various areas of the territory display a gorgeous landscape rich in wild life: wild-boars, moufflons, birds of prey, partridges and hares, etc. The lovely scenery that can be admired from Monte Armidda includes the characteristic Perda Leana, Monte Tricoli, the porphyry crest of Serra Coronedda and the littoral plain.

Ogliastra will enchant you with its many treasures throughout the entire year. Ogliastra; island into the island, immersed in the sea, island of natural beauties……your holiday island! Year after year, its unique colors and ancient traditions conquer millions of visitors who flood this corner of paradise situated in the heart of the flights from and to Sardinia. Use the flight search engine to find the cheapest low-cost flights and purchase them from the airlines directly.

Sardinia is a beautiful and fascinating island; this portal strives to catalogue its numerous tourist attractions. It is a wonderful and captivating island for those whose visit is motivated by its medieval churches, extraordinary scenery and nuraghe.

For those with a passion for hunting, fishing, hiking, or horseback-riding; for individuals interested in visiting its Phoenician, Punic and Roman historical testimonials or satisfying their curiosity on subjects concerning geology, nature and mineralogy, and finally, for those who are interested in its genuine folklore and celebrations, its many beaches and transparent coastlines, sudden gorges and hidden grottoes.

Lastly, let’s not forpost its marshes and their typical fauna or pleasure boating along its coastline from which one of the most scenic and remarkable views of the Mediterranean is offered.

Lanusei: a small hilly town renowned for its invigorating healthy climate, Lanusei is set as an amphitheatre dominating a valley, the coast and the sea.

It has a wealth of cultural centres: museums, churches and monuments testify its resplendent past. Worth mentioning is the Astrological Observatory “F.

Various areas of the territory display a gorgeous landscape rich in wild life: wild-boars, moufflons, birds of prey, partridges and hares, etc. The lovely scenery that can be admired from Monte Armidda includes the characteristic Perda Liana, Monte Tricoli, the porphyry crest of Serra Coronedda and the littoral archaeological legacy on the territory covers all the periods from early Neolithic to Roman times.

The most significant finds are from the Nuragic era: 6 nuraghi, 2 giants’ tombs and about 14 areas where settlements are supposed to have existed. The most important archaeological and environmental site is Selene: an ancient settlement perched on a rocky outcrop with, at a brief distance, beautiful giants 'tombs'.

Tourism in Sardinia is a relatively new phenomenon and until recent times there was little choice but to stay in modest inns or private houses, especially away from the largest towns and a handful of old, well-known seaside resorts. Today the quality of Sardinian tourist accommodation has reached the same high standards found in the rest of Italy (thanks in part to important events such as the establishment of a Sardinian tourist board in 1952, and changes in regional laws starting in the 1960s which incentivized investment from individuals and large companies).

The coastal areas are not the only places driving the growth of tourism in Sardinia, with many areas once exclusively used for farming and grazing now offering fantastic holiday accommodation, such as Fonni and Oliena. The number of different holiday possibilities is countless, stretching from your traditional hotel, to simpler, often more rural options like bed and breakfasts or agritourism farmhouses.

Another possibility for those who want to immerse themselves in the mediterranean scrub and breathtaking landscapes of the Sardinian countryside is the campsite, particularly recommended to lovers of walking. A fantastic alternative to hotels or resorts is the self-catering holiday home, many of which have swimming pools and/or are right by the sea. If you are looking for a beach holiday you will soon notice the different characters of the various coastal areas.

The Emerald Coast (Costa Smeralda) and the famous seaside towns near Olbia (including Porto Cervo and Porto Rotondo) are very popular among the rich and famous, and whilst their 'exclusiveness' is questionable, they ooze style and sophistication. In contrast areas such as Santa Margherita di Pula, Porto Conte, Baia Sardinia and Villasimius are popular destinations for package holidays, whereas areas like Alghero, Santa Teresa di Gallura, La Maddalena, San Teodoro, Cala Gonone, Golfo Aranci and Muravera are popular among more traditional, independent tourists.

In addition to these well known destinations there are many minor coastal towns and villages where you can find great accommodation at very good prices, especially in agritourism farmhouses, bed and breakfasts, and hotels, the rising stars of Sardinian tourism.

The early days when Sardinian hotels were known for their lack of professionalism, offset only by the beauty of the island and the friendliness of the islanders, have long since passed, even in the lesser known places.

Despite the growth of tourism in Sardinia the countryside retains its wild, uncontaminated beauty, and visitors always enjoy a completely authentic experience, never a manufactured one. Lanusei, The lovely scenery that can be admired from Monte Armidda includes the characteristic Perda Liana, Monte Tricoli, the porphyry crest of Serra Coronedda and the littoral plain.

Dear Tenants, I was born in Lanusei Sardinia. At the age of 19th I came to The Netherlands where since 1976 I'm working for The Dow Chemical Company in Terneuzen. Beside my own job, I began with the renting of some vacation homes on the Eastern coast of Sardinia; these units belong to good friends of mine. The owner on place will welcome you with open arms, although, I do have all the responsibility for a smooth 'n proper running of your vacation 'n as intermediary 'tween you and the owner on spot.

Ein wunderbarer Aufenthalt

from Daniela S. from Emskirchen

5 5 5 5 5

travel period: October 2018


Ein wunderbarer Aufenthalt und eine Woche ist viel zu kurz dafür. Wir wurden warmherzig von dem Besitzer Mario empfangen. Das Haus ist absolut liebevoll eingerichtet und es fehlt nichts! Die Lage des Hauses ist sowohl für Wanderungen bestens geeignet aber auch zum Strand nach Torri di Bari ist es mit dem Auto nur 20 Minuten. Zum Einkaufen nach Lanusei, wo man sehr guten frischen Fisch kaufen kann sind es auch nur 15 Minuten mit dem Auto. Da wir mit dem Wetter (Ende Oktober) nicht mehr so viel Glück hatten durfte wir auch den vorhanden Ofen anschüren und er machte das ganze Haus sofort warm!
Für zwei Personen ist dieses Haus bestens geeignet wenn man eine Auszeit von der Hektik und der Schnelllebigkeit sucht. Da es keinen Fernseher gibt und auch das vorhanden WLan nicht immer so schnell funktioniert!
Wir werden dieses Haus nächstes Jahr auf alle Fälle wieder buchen und dann nicht nur für eine Woche!!!!
