Tourist location of a typical Sardinian house in Onifai, in a strategic position to reach the beautiful beaches of the Gulf of Orosei, where sea and mountains meet to amaze the man with their extraordinary beauty.
The house is located in a quiet and reserved, between the scent of rosemary and lemons, for lovers of relaxation.
The house, a typical Sardinian building: the rooms all face the inner courtyard, in a quiet and private setting.
Indoor and outdoor parking in a private driveway.
The house is ideal for two couples who want to spend the holidays together but can enjoy each one of their own privacy; each couple will have available in addition to the room, bathroom with shower and hairdryer, air conditioning, kitchen, fridge with freezer, microwave, toaster and kettle. Iron and ironing board, clothesline. Laundry and shared outdoor shower.
The house has mosquito nets on the windows.
In the center of the village of Onifai, a stone's throw from the house, there are: grocery store, post office, pharmacy, bar, pizzeria, newsagent and tobacconist.
For travel we recommend the use of the car or motorbike.
The accommodation is in a strategic position with respect to the most famous beaches of the Gulf of Orosei, easily reachable by car or by sea. We recommend a tour of the gulf with the boat, starting from Orosei or Cala Gonone.
For those who love hiking or climbing you can not miss a visit to the canyon of Gorroppu or the mountains of Dorgali and Oliena.
To visit also the famous caves of Ispinigoli (by land) and the cave of Fico and Bue Marino (guided tours by sea).
The territory is rich in nuragic sites (we point out the nuragic village of Serra Orrios, the tomb of the giants S'ena de Thomas and the sacred well of Osana).
You can not miss a visit to the nearby village of Galtellì and its Literary Park dedicated to Grazia Deledda, the Nobel Prize writer who set the book "Canne al Vento" here.
The area of the Gulf of Orosei is among the most unspoiled in Sardinia.
The village of Onifai is quiet and very nice, at a distance from the summer crowd. There are all the essential services (food, pharmacy, post office, newsagent, tobacconist ...). The village of Onifai develops on the sides of a hill, in a central position with respect to the most famous beaches of the Gulf of Orosei (Biderrosa, Berchida, Cala Liberotto, Cala Ginepro, Cartoe, Cala Gonone), but also less famous but just as beautiful as those of Su Barone (convenient because of the pinewood accessible by car, where you can stop for a pic nick under the trees) or Osala, easily accessible by car. Alternatively you can visit the coves of the territory of Dorgali as Cartoe, Cala Luna, Cala Mariolu, Cala Sisine, Cala Goloritzé, by sea. There are at least three possibilities: the boat tour, the renting of the dinghy with driver or without driver. From personal experience, the boat trip with driver is the one that allows you to enjoy the tour of the coves of the Gulf.
If you are interested in excursions the possibilities are not lacking: I recommend a visit to the Canyon of Gorroppu and a visit to the nuragic village of Tiscali. Another possibility is trekking with a guide to Cala Luna beach (where the film by Wertmüller "Swept away by an unusual destiny in the blue sea of August"), starting from Cala Gonone.
To visit also the caves of Bue Marino, the Grotta del Fico (by sea) and the Grotta di Ispinigoli (in the territory of Dorgali, 20 minutes from Onifai).
A less tiring alternative to excursions is Mount Tuttavista, with a visit to Sa Preta Istampata and the belvedere del Cristo, both easily reachable by car (and a short walk).
It is also worth visiting the nearby village of Galtellì with the literary park dedicated to the writer Grazia Deledda. Even Orosei is full of characteristic places and evocative views.
To the north it is worth visiting the characteristic village of Posada. Going further inland you can visit the villages of Orgosolo, famous for its murals, or of Mamoiada known for the characteristic masks of its carnival, to see the Museum of Mediterranean Masks.
For archeology enthusiasts, close to us there are the nuragic village of Serra Orrios, the tomb of the giants of S'ena and Thomes and the sacred well of Osana.
To eat: In the town center there is an excellent pizzeria, and in the area there are various restaurants, pizzerias or farms that prepare typical menus of land and sea with a good quality / price ratio.
