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

I have to say that I'm a big fan of agritourismo's in general and Sa Mandra is one of the best. They offer fantastic food with excellent atmosphere and service. Just make sure to pace yourself as there's still a lot to come after the pasta.

We (four of us) visited Sa Mandra during beginning of October this year due to good reviews here on Tripadvisor. Firstly let me say that recommendations left here by the people were fully justified and secondly please let me advise anyone who is considering planning and taking the trip to Sardinia to plan at least one meal in "agroturismo" places...

We had a superb lunch preceded by an amazing aperitivo. We could walk around the place at all time. We saw pigs being roasted on open fire. Lunch was served inside. We loved the food. Highly recommended !

We came last year and stayed for one night and loved it. We returned this year, just for dinner, with my parents. We saved it until the last night of our trip and it was well worth the wait. If anything it was better than we had remembered. Its very different from other Agriturismo's we visited, more commercial, but don't... More

We were looking for authentic Sardinian food. The food was plentiful and good, especially the roast pig which is done on their open fire. The service was excellent and the atmosphere was intriguing. The only down side was that it was very noisy and crowded.

Great service and amazing food. The whole experience was fantastic - the moment you walk in you get to see the traditional cooking methods and a short history of farming in the region. Make sure you are hungry as there is a lot of food to eat. It is all amazing value as well - I would definitely recommend this... More

The place is close to Alghero airport and is not the easiest to find but once there, you are welcomed by a typical farm cottage turned into a "museum" which sends you back in time and explains how things were done in the history. In a large garden you can find all kinds of entertainment for kids which was great... More

This is a total immersion experience in Sardinian food and culture. It's a restaurant on the farm, and the farm provides most of everything on the menu. You don't have to choose what to eat. We got 7 antipasti, 2 pasti, and 2 meats (roasted suckling pig and stewed wild boar). The ingredients are incredibly fresh. The ricotta and pecorino... More

Wow! Don't eat all day before going there. Everything is delicious and abundant. And you get to try most of the Sardinian traditional foods. And the location is beautiful!
