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

Such a great experience! This is definitely a restaurant you have to go to if you near Alghero. We were welcomed at the entrance and offered a happy hour in a very suggestive garden where you could see the porcheddu sardo been cooked. We tasted the typical local food and wine, the plates were varied and a lot, very tasty.... More

It was our worst & most expensive meal on holiday. Basic food, admittedly in a nice setting, but probably rated highly due to the free alcohol and amount of food served. However, quantity is no replacement for quality, especially as restaurants in nearby Alghero serve much better food for less money. The service is friendly but also basic, with each... More

We dined at Sa Mandra, and really enjoyed the experience. The service was excellent and the food was varied, and very tasty. We were seated outside, which I think is a nicer option than inside, though the inside option did look charming. There are a lot of courses...so come hungry! They catered for one of us who was a vegetarian,... More

The food is very good although they serve raw vegetables that don't look anything special. The porcetto is amazing and the ravioli too but they don't wait for you to finish eating to bring you the next round it really gives you the feeling they want you to leave the restaurant soon and when you go to a Agriturismo is...

We visited Sa Mandra on the 10th September. We had previously visited Sa Mandra by booking a food tasting tour with Naturalghero, a fantastic tour, however we weren't able to experience the restaurant at that time, Upon our second visit, Wednesday 10th, we had no reservation, and they were more than willing to accommodate us as long as we sat...

Excellent experience, pork was delicious and the amount of food provided for the cost of 40 euro a head was immense.

As Italian I can absolutely suggest to pay a visit for a great dinner in this Agriturismo. I went with my girlfriend and another couple of friend and we spend an amazing dinner from aperitif to dessert. We ate delicious local food in generous portions, from the three kind of pecorino (with three different ageing time), local bread, local ham,... More
