Agriturismo Sarrabus is a lovely, traditional agriturismo, less than an hour from Cagliari, on the east coast of Sardinia. The food here is a major highlight; their on site restaurant is the perfect place to experience Sardinia’s rich food tradition with much of the ingredients for their traditional recipes coming fresh from their own, or other farms in the local area.
They have a range of cosy self catering cottages to sleep up to four people surrounding the main farmhouse & restaurant. They are basic but clean and comfortable and though, because of the quality of the food in the restaurant, you might find yourself never cooking, you will also have a well equipped kitchenette at your disposal.
Outside the cottages have a little veranda with tables and chairs and there is plenty of space to lounge around in the lawns and among the lovely olive and orange trees, where you’ll also find some slides and swings for the children.
The farm itself produces a variety of fruits, vegetables and herbs which go in to their fresh food as well as keeping Tibetan goats, hens, ducks, rabbits, turtles and even two friendly wild boars. They have horses too and you can bring them out for some lovely horse riding trips around the nearby lagoon and along the sea shore.
You’ll find the agriturismo down some country lanes near the village of San Priamo in this richly rural part of east Sardinia. The sea is just minutes away as is the Stagno dei Colustrai lagoon, which you can explore on horseback, and there are some lovely beaches around too.
The journey from Cagliari should take less than an hour but if you have time on your hands you can take the longer, but more scenic coastal routes.
WHAT OTHER GUESTS SAY:
“Had a great time at Agriturismo Sarrabus. Location is great and perfect for exploring the surrounding areas. Silvia was a lovely host, easy to talk to and have a laugh. She always had time for a chat and to give information about the agriturismo and the local area. Would definitely recommend plus the jams at breakfast are fantastic!..”
“The staff is absolutely friendly, kind and helpful. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was great: tasty homemade yogurt, cakes and biscuits. Dinner was an absolute treat: everything was delicious and the price was more than fair. The Agriturismo is nice, peaceful and surrounded by nature and animals…”
