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

DESERVES TO BE N.1

Last time was two years ago, still excellent, deserves to be N.1. Best dish was the "porceddu" (suckling pig) never had it that good. Great atmosfere and service, bit difficult to reach without a car but worth the effort.

Fantastic location along with amazing, well cooked, authentic, fresh food! For €40 a head we thought it may be a bit steep but this is in no way expensive for the amount of food AND drink we got. We worked out it was a total of 14 dishes and this is not including all the olives, cheese, cured meat and... More

Had a great tour of the farm and house, receiving great insight into the making of cheese and dried meats as well as Alghero's history. The evening finished off with wine and food produce from the farm. Overall, a fabulous experience.

Our 2nd year to visit sardinia & many agriturismo. We actually planned an overnight stay in the region to visit sa mandra and oh what a disappointment. Very commercial, expect tour buses & crowds. Food is below average, incl the famous porceddu. If you are looking for an authentic top nodge experience visit la kustera in the northeast or sa... More

This is well worth a visit! The place is nice and there's a beautiful little garden setting to wander about in. Service was nice and swift, food absolutely to die for; the ricotta cheese, herb pasta and whole roasted suckling pig...

I have been back to this lovely restaurant, this time for a business dinner. Once again, it has been a great experience: food, service and location were perfect. My guests were truly enthusiastic!

great place, wonderful location, friendly staff, great quality and excellent food, with a sort of open air museum of local traditions. For a very reasonable price (40 euros total) you can enjoy a full range menu including, pre-drink with appetizers, wines, desserts, liqueur. Very efficient service, elegant and traditional at the same time, with some lovely creative variations. Stay hungry,... More

Sa Mandra far exceeded our expectations. We thought it was just like any other restaurant, but it turned out to be a very large set menu for only 40€ (we're talking appetisers, 6 hors d'oeuvres, 2 primi, 2 secondi, 3 desserts, wine and drinks included). Great Sardinian food.

Sa Mandra agriculture tourism farm lies just out side Allegro on Sardinia's west coast. Sa Mandra is like an open air museum which gives a real insight into an extensive Sardinian farm house from a kitchen and food perspective, if you are interested in food, hospitality or an almost hands on Italian kitchen experience then Sa Mandra is an exceptional...
