In Orroli, a little village in East Central Sardinia better known as “the land of lakes”, for the presence of majestic Lake Mulargia, and Flumendosa, i discovered a charming b&b. Its name is Sa Pardina and i spent there 3 wonderful nights.
BEST b&b in Orroli EVER!: Sa Pardina
In Orroli, a little village in East central Sardinia better known as “the land of lakes”, for the presence of majestic Lake Mulargia, and Flumendosa, i discovered a charming b&b. Its name is Sa Pardina and i spent there 3 wonderful nights.
The interiors reflect authentically Orroli atmosphere: they are genuine, romantic and seem to tell something about Sardinia history.
Sa Pardina was the perfect place i was looking for to fully live all the magic of the island.
Nothing comparable with the coastal cities. Orroli surroundings include forests, waterfalls and a lot of archaeological sites. The most important is Arrubiu Nuraghe, also called “Red Giant” because of the reddish hues of the lichens that give it its colour.
The Park of De Su Motti, overlooking the village, is both a natural and an archaeological attraction. Enclosed by a basalt amphitheatre and covered in holm oaks, centuries-old downy oaks and Mediterranean scrub, it contains a priceless heritage (by SardiniaTurismo.it/en/).
But let’s go back to Sa Pardina b&b: a place that i suggest to write down in your travel agenda.
SA PARDINA: a fascinating STORY …
The host is Paolo Schirru and i had the pleasure to know him directly at check-in. He is so friendly and told me the full story of his charming little hotel.
He explained that Sa Pardina means godmother and comes from Rosa Orru, that was precisely Paolo grandfather’s godmother. Rosa Orru gave the house to this latter, that in its turn, gave it to Schirru Rosa Maria: Paolo’s godmother.
You can feel the woman’s touch in all b&b decorations and in each of the 3 bedrooms, elegantly appointed in traditional sardinian style.
SA PARDINA: ROOMS
Sa Pardina rooms are are equipped with private bathroom; tv; air conditioning and antique forniture. Inside, you can also find a luxury courtesy set and a minibar. I could define the breakast as a 5 stars breakfast: only fresh and traditional food, homemade jams, cheese, juices and a very good coffe!
I wish to go back soon to Sa Pardina, also because is strategically located close to many attractions, such as Barumini, the biggest nuragic village of Sardinia; the Giara of Gesturi, a natural park in which you can see with your eyes the last wild little horses of Europe and Ogliastra obviously: the sardinian region between sea and mountains that I love the most (to know more, read my article about Canyon Gorropu).
