Il Mandorlo Hotel in the heart of Sardinia. History, typical architecture and modern comforts

Monday, 29 November 2021 12:30

Il Mandorlo is a hotel in Baressa, in the province of Oristano, some 60 kilometres from Cagliari (Sardinia). The result of a careful renovation of ruins dating back to the 19th century, the property has the typical features of traditional rural Sardinian architecture, through the recovery of original materials such as stone and wood and the conservation of distinctive elements.

Il Mandorlo’s old house dates back to the 19th century

Il Mandorlo is divided into two units: the main one with eight guest rooms and common areas, the loggias, the courtyard, the dining room with the lounge and bar, the reception, and the terrace with solarium. One hundred and eighty metres away stands a typical historic house called Casa Cossu, from the name of the family that lived there originally in the second half of the 19th century. All the rooms have private bathrooms and are furnished in the style of traditional Sardinian craftsmanship. They are completed with handcrafted furnishings and accessories that  echo the colours and symbols of Sardinia’s authentic textile traditions.

There is plenty to explore, from a UNESCO site to interesting parks 

Il Mandorlo hotel is located a short distance from the main points of interest: the Giara Naturalistic Park, the UNESCO heritage site "Su Nuraxi", the Sardinia in Miniature Park and the starred restaurant of well-known chef Roberto Petza. The many local wineries in the area allow guests to visit their vineyards and cellars for wine tasting paired with local products.
