High up in the hills of Barbagia, discover a more authentic side to Sardinia at Su Gologone. A place where nature takes centre stage and artists come to capture it; switch off and slow down as you experience a new take on island life. Set amongst terraced gardens, dotted with hidden nooks from which to enjoy the views, the 70 rooms and suites offer a picture-perfect getaway. Whether you spend your days losing yourself in the hotel’s impressive art collection, sampling local wines, enjoying a film beneath the stars or adventuring through the hills; Su Gologone and Sardinia will capture your heart.
Characterised by a glittering coastline that hugs a rugged interior, there is more to Sardinia than summer sunshine. Beautiful all year round, fall in love with mesmerising landscapes as the fragrant aromas of myrtle and rosemary draw you away from the beaches and into the hills. Tucked away in the mountains of Supramonte, amid a maze of olive trees and vineyards, Su Gologone is a step back in time to traditional Sardinia. Just an hour’s drive from Olbia Airport, it’s the perfect island getaway.
Traditional with a touch of luxury and a nod to artistic tradition, at Su Gologone juniper beams run across ceilings, artisan furnishings add an authentic touch and original artworks cover white-washed walls to give a burst of colour. What we really loved though was the addition of local crafts, such as the hand-embroidered cushions made by the women of Oliena. Take your pick between Shepherd’s Rooms which hark back to tradition or Art Suites which take inspiration from leading 20th-century Sardinian artists and feature outdoor bathrooms where bubble baths beneath the stars are the order of the day.
Why we like it
If ever you were looking for a place to channel your artistic side – Su Gologone is it. An aperitif at Magico Tablao, overlooking the spectacular views of Supramonte, is all it takes to feel inspired. And to channel this inspiration? An atelier suite, fully equipped with an assortment of brushes, canvases, colours and an easel, is on hand. A private oasis within the hotel, the Atelier Art Studio Suite also boasts it’s own private rose garden for that added extra inspiration. Masterpiece complete, you can even show it off on display in the hotel studio.
