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.

“A quirky Sardinian experience!”

Reviewed 30 Sep 2013

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.
