The Sardinia region

Sardinia has the most beautiful clear water sea of the Mediterraneo, coupled with fine sand and quartz beaches. It is possible to enjoy the sea from April to October. Besides the sea, there are rivers full of fishes, amazing salt lakes with flamingoes and other unique birds. The mountains have deep gorges and waterfalls.

Sardinia is not only about nature, archeologically it houses some of the most ancient civilizations: the Nuraghi with their misterious stone towers, the Phoenician and Roman built the town of Tharros. There are also numerous examples of romanic churches, developed after the year 1000 a.C. All year long there are special feasts and rituals, like Carnevale, horse races and many religiuos event of special anthropological interest.

Sardinia is a region to be enjoyed all year long for the natural beauty, the historical- cultural interest and least but not last its cooking speciality.

Riola Sardo

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.

In the winter the most famous attraction is a horse race(Sartiglia), ridden with symbolism.

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 beaches and salt lakes. Regarding watersports Capo Mannu, 10 minutes drive, is one of the best place for surfing, kite surfing, diving, snorkelling, boating. For a day trip event you can visit the wild island of Malu Entu.

"A quirky Sardinian experience!"

The owner (Francesca) is charming and extremely helpful,nothing was too much trouble. The accommodation is basic, bedroom ensuite and outdoor cooking and eating area, but it was all clean and functioned as it should.
Riola Sardo is a small town which offers limited eating places although the Bisteccheria is very good both for food and value and the Pasticceria has cakes to die for!!.The local people are very friendly as they are in most of Sardinia but this is Italy for the Italians and so you would be well advised to have a smattering of Italian.You will need a car to get to the beaches and to other eating places.If you are looking for the usual 'British' friendly tourist location this is not for you BUT if you enjoy exploring and discovering the true culture and nature of an area then this will suit you very well.
