Description: Benevennios. We are Rita and Mario, and together with our daughter Maria Grazia and our sons Michele and Giuseppe we run our farm stay "Sa Mandra". Twenty years ago we left Fonni, our birthtown and we moved to this region, Nurra, near Alghero, taking the affection from our native place and the love for our origins with us. Our lives have been made even happier with the birth of our kids first, and the birth of our nephew Fabrizio more recently.We both belong to families from agro-pastoral communities that moved to the same area in the northern Sardinia.We took our culture from Barbagia with us, and we use it as distinctive mark to run our business: the farm stay "Sa Mandra"( mandra stands for a circular paddock that shepherds used to build in order to confine sheep for milking). We started up this activity in 1993, in a plot of one hundred hectares close to Alghero and to the "Riviera del Corallo" (the coral coast), in the Nurra region, a flat land with few plateaus, rich in naturalistic and historical sites, monuments, with areas for growing medicinal herbs, other with olive groves, and lands left for grazing.Over the last 20 years we have asserted ourselves in this field, improving and increasing the range of services we are able to offer, thanks to our qualified staff (of 10-20 people depending the season), trained in our farm within the project Programma Operativo Regionale 2000/2006.We currently offer

Had a very good evening with my wife and two kids. The place has a relaxed atmosphere and there is plenty og space for the kids to move around if needed (playground, animals etc.). There is plenty of food and it is very good quality, but there are not many "surprises" on the menu. The price of EUR 40 is... More

One of the highlights of our trip! Around 10 courses of simply prepared farm fresh food with unlimited wine and digestivos at the end. Can't fault any part of the meal! You can even ask for more after each course! Great value, great food, great setting. Do go! One thing to note is its quite difficult to get to from... More

Great place, cheap, only 40EUR (fixed price) and lots and lots of great food and free flow wine. A welcome drink outside before the dinner was a great extra bonus.

Loved the rustic good and the concept itself. It was not the best food experience in sardinia but very good indeed.

Thus may have been the best meal of my life. Everything is absolutely delicious and the portion are immense. I am a big eater but I struggled to finish the meal, mostly because at the end of each course, and there around about 12-13 courses, they ask if you want more of what you have just head. Porcetto and fregola... More

My partner and I went to Sa Mandra last week after seeing the trip advisor reviews. I would describe it as more of an experience...it is not fine dining but that doesn't mean it is at all not worthy of the rating it has. I can see how it would appeal to families; the grounds have facilities for children to... More

Neat food experience. Most definitely geared to and catering for tourists and not sincere Sardinians, but great setting and solid food to boot. It's about an acre of displays and manicured lawns to show off traditional farming, living and cooking. At 8:00 you take your seat (make sure and get an outside table) and the food starts rolling out at... More

The best place with local cuisine and style. If you want to taste traditional sardinian plates you have to go there. The price is really good for the quality and quantity of food.

I visited Sa Mandra with my family and it has been a delightful experience. If you want to get the taste of true Sardinian food, book a table there. Plenty of space for children too.
