Agriturismo Sa Mandra

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 accomodation and restaurant, with menus based on traditional recipes from Barbagia region.We then decided to promote a didactic offer that would include farm activities, for students to appreciate the importance of the natural enviroment, the farm life, to give the right value to organic food and to rural traditions and local cultures.
We still cook the meat in traditional way: this task was usually carried out only by men in Barbagia, so here Mario and Michele perpetuate this tradition and they cook the meat in the big outdoor fireplace.

Our daughter and sons carry out the farm activities with us, the different tasks in the restaurant, the sales of farm products such as cheese and salamis, and other activities such as sardinian meals cooking courses, cookery demonstrations for using medicinal herbs in recipes, maps for activities in the surroundings, volley, football, park and minibasket for kids, outdoor gym, field days with preparation of farm products, horse riding and riding courses at the riding school “Sa Mandra”, in Porto Ferro, where Michele e Giuseppe breed a anglosardinian and a thoroughbred.

A leap into the sheperd life in the montains of Fonni, and in the woman life in her family community. And more….

We will welcome you in our big family.
