“An oasis of tranquility”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

When we discovered this beautiful place on tripadvisor we immediately liked it for its beauty, care for detail and the overall philosophy. In other words: Expectations were high when we arrived at L'Essenza. Nonetheless we were stunned by what was offered in real. In fact our expectations were exceeded. We found an oasis of tranquility, rooms that were not just looking extraordinary (beautiful) but were smart in function and detail as well. L'Essenza sits on an amazing property with a lovely wild garden and a calming view that invites you to read and relax. We stayed two nights in April 2013 and had a memorable retreat in nature.

Upon my visit to L'Essenza I was graciously welcomed by Valeria and her mother Marina during my all to brief visit to Sardinia. During my stay not only was my mind and body provided with a much needed break after many months of travel but I was shown a part of the island I may otherwise have missed if not in their company. The food was fantastic and the accommodation truly something unique. Can not encourage other travels more to visit.

If you're in search for peace and quiet and a beautiful view you've found the right place. In fact I found myself wanting to say something like "I can finally finish writing that book" or something along these lines.

We stayed for three days on the recommendation of a Sardinian friend and it was absolutely lovely. Although quite remote everything is supermodern (air-condition, wifi, amazing bathroom) and lovingly designed and furnished with a good eye for detail. Marina, our host, was very friendly and welcoming and is an amazing host. In hindsight we regret not staying there for longer. A range of activites is on offer and just sitting on the hill, overlooking the sea and the valley is a pleasure. We will definitely come back to this gem.
The road leading up to L'Essenza is quite a challenge though. Our car overheated negotiating the unpaved path.
