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

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...

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

I visited this Agriturismo in July with my girlfriend. We were expecting a great meal given the reviews but we were very disappointed. The plus points would be that much of the menu is produced on the farm and so the ingredients are quite fresh. Overall we found the food very stodgy and heavy. Service was very slow with staff...

I've been eating at Sa Mandra almost since they opened and it gets better every time! The staff are wonderful, attentive without being too invasive, the food is always excellent and all the extra little touches that have been added to the farmhouse make it an interesting and worthwhile experience. Pace yourself during the meal as it's easy to overeat... More

Due to the no.1 score at Tripadvisor we had a very nice diner at this place. You get a lot of value for money here: €40 p.p. This inclusies not only all the dishes, but also tablewater, a bottle of local red or white wine, coffee and a aperitivo. What makes it special is that most of the food is... More

this is a must visit if you enjoy good food. Go hungry! the courses keep coming. The most incredible pork cooked on the spit over an open fire and wide range of cheeses made on the farm.

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
