L'Orto Agriturismo
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 2, 2012

We visited L'orto at the end of a two week stay touring Sardinia and Corsica and I am so glad we came here last - otherwise all our other accomdation would have been a disappointment after this. The loaction is just outside a small village and totally secure with automatic gates The rooms are very spacious, clean and excellently furnished. The beds are incredibly comfortable. Everthing you need is there including the ability to park the car very near to the room (we were in number 10). The grounds are beautiful, next to a fruit orchard, and a there is a lovely pool at the back of the rooms. But the best part is the half board evening meal - which is incredible, a taste of real Sardinian cooking - Francesca is fantastic - i don't know how she does it all. And it includes the wine and after dinner drink with your coffee. If you don't opt for half board you are seriously missing out - this was one of the main highlights of our trip and we will be going back next year and taking our families.

Room Tip: All rooms are quiet - but you can park your car next to number 10 which is at the end of the row.

We stayed at L'Orto for 2 nights at the end of our two week honeymoon in Sardinia. The rooms were clean and well furnished. Francesca speaks good english which is very helpful. We ate dinner the first night and were delighted with the vegetables, pasta, and final course of goat. The property is very beautiful and even has a pool! We had a little trouble navigating through the small towns to get to the property--the many one way streets are very confusing. For exploring the area I recommend checking out the ruins at Tharros and the nice beaches on the Sinis peninsula.

We had a fantastic stay on half board at the L'Orto at the start of the September. We have never stayed in an agriturisumo and we weren't sure what it will be like, especially as we don't speak any Italian - so we only booked for 3 nights and we really wished we had booked for longer.

Before I start the review, may I remind the viewers the concept of the agriturismo is akin to a B&B in a farm house - it is geared more towards friendliness then impeccable concierge service. This is a place where you can meet fellow travellers over dinner and make new friends, rather then worrying about precise table manners. Sardinia is not visited by many British - it mainly seems to cater for Italian & German tourists. So don't expect everyone, especially the fellow tourists to speak English.

Lets get cons out of the way as there are only a few:
- Its by a little village of San Vero Milis and not really in a walking distance to anything. You'll definitely need a car to get around.
- Walls are not well sound proofed (this is unfortunately the same in all Sardinian accommodations we stayed so I can't really fault L'Orto any more then others)
- The dinner menu are fixed and you wont get a choice of several different food. Although we didn't find this a problem as we have no restrictions and I know they were happy to cater for vegetarians or non fish eaters.

Pros:
- the hostess, Francesca & her husband, are very kind and keen hosts. They were happy to accommodate one of the resident's request to have meat, would provide any assistance that's needed and were always available. Francesca speaks good english but rest of the crew seems to speak Italian only.
- The ground is very well maintained with private fruit and olive trees, glassed front and even a small swimming pool at the back. The room & bathroom was clean and decorated in simple fashion. They have decent air-con and a free WiFi as well.
- The dinner at L@Orto is legendary. It started with aperitif of local white wine with several antipasti (sweet sweet roasted peppers, roasted onions, aubergines with garlic, courgette with bread crumbs, local salami and hams, sardinian bread etc etc), followed by primi of pasta and secondi of meat or fish. This was followed by cheese, dessert and digestivo (mirto or limoncello) and coffee as well! Dinner here was the best we had in sardinia, both the taste and value for money. And all the while wine flows freely. Did I mention you can choose to have dinner on a long table with other guests (highly recommended) have your own table.
- Atmosphere in L'Orto was second to none. Francesca makes effort to introduce new guests to others at the dinning table. We've manage to make friends with Italians from mainland Italy, French and Spanish as well. On some nights we got chatting so much we stayed till past mid night talking away (and we don't speak any of the above language). This really makes L'Orto and I would happily recommend it to my friends purely for this reason!
- Although not in a walking distance, it is not too far from site seeing locations - Tharos, Oristano, Cabras and costal beaches are all with in 15-20 min drive.

Overall, this was the best place we stayed during our trip in Sardinia. We would highly recommend this place for anyone wishing to enjoy a holiday with a bit of culture!

My husband and I stayed here for a few days while we were exploring the area and were very pleased with the room and also the food. I would say the food was some of the best I had on the trip and Francesca is a great host. I will definitely be back if I ever return to Sardinia.

We stayed here for one night on our way to Barumini. It is in a very quiet little village near Oristano. The room was spacious and spotless, and there was a little terrace to sit outside with table and chairs. The hostess Francesca was charming and spoke very good English. We had the most delicious breakfast including homemade cakes and fresh yoghurt with local honey. Highly recommended!

What a beautiful location! A wonderful spot to explore the surroundings: san salvatore, sinis, tharros, the little villages like milis and seneghe. And you have to stay for diner! You will not be disappointed.
