The personnel is competent and cordial and the variety of the offered services are able to satisfy the different demands of the diportistis. From June 2005 the port has been endowed with the 'Pequod', the lifter to otherwise allow the access on board of the skilled people, becoming so the 'first accessible port' of Sardinia.

In 2006 for the second consecutive time the Tourist Port has gotten the prestigious recognition Blue Flag of the tourist landings, that is assigned for quality of the landing, services and safety measures, environmental education and information. The Tourist Port every year increases his presences thanks to the quality of the services that offers and to the magic scenery where the is drawn the port that from the sense of the nature thanks to the green that surrounds it.

The cave was first explored and surveyed in the 1950s by the speleological group PIO XI. So far 800 m of tunnels have been mapped, while others are still being explored. The cavity is also important from a faunistic point of view, because it was there that Padre Forreddu, one of the founders of Sardinian speleology, studied the monk seal, living day and night in close contact with the mammal.

The cave is situated 7 m above sea level, along the limestone cliffs of the gulf of Orosei. Safe gangways will allow you to walk easily over the fossil bed of an ancient river.

Tortolì, with its long beaches typical of granitic, could not be outdone. Here you will find sandy beaches, or cliffs of red porphyry like the 'Red Rocks', Cea located between the beach and Tortolì Barisardo.

Entering the village one of the most beautiful beaches is definitely the Bay Port Frailis, located near the Capo Bellavista.  Here the sand of the beach is the most candid of the island.

The Province of Ogliastra is located in east-central Sardinia, facing eastward on the Tyrrhenian Sea, and bordering in the northwest with the Province of Nuoro, and in the southwest with the Province of Cagliari. Ogliastra was established as a province following a 2001 regional law that provided for a new division of the Sardinian territory, bringing the number of provinces from four to eight.

The Province covers 716 square miles (or 6.2% of Sardinian territory) and holds 23 municipalities, including Lanusei and Tortolì; the two Lakes Flumendosa and part of the Gennargentu Massif are also partly within the province's territory.

The name apparently derives from the Olivastri (oleasters, or wild olive trees) that abound here, although others ascribe its origin to the huge monolith known as Agugliastra (or Pedra Longa) on the coast of Baunei.

Ogliastra is the least populated province of Italy: for this reason, it offers nature untamed and a great variety of wonderful landscapes, ranging from the coast to hills and the Gennargentu mountains.

Eighteenth- and 19th-century works fill the heart of Tortolì, specifically Palazzo Vescovile and the Baroque Cathedral of Sant’Andrea. Also interesting is the “Su Logu de S’Iscultura” Museum of Contemporary Art, with pieces by Italian and international artists exhibited outdoors and integrated with the urban and natural surroundings.

In Lanusei - stretching along the ridge of a hill overlooking the Tyrrhenian Sea - mention-worthy are the Cathedral of Santa Maria Maddalena, dating back to the early 20th-Century; the Church of San Giovanni Bosco; and the Ogliastra Diocesan Museum, exhibiting Medieval liturgical objects and written documents, along with some archaeological finds.

In the hills west of Lanusei is the Seleni Municipal Park, a lush forest of holm oak trees, as well as a rich fauna consisting of wild boars, foxes, buzzards and other birds of prey.

Seui is an old mining village tied to the exploitation of anthracite deposits. The old colliery, located just under two miles from the village, is still visible and is an interesting example of industrial archaeology. But the real beauty of Seui is its old town, where 19th-century buildings stand alongside numerous examples of local architecture in stone. Among the monuments in Seui: Casa Farci, the Spanish Baronial Prison, the Galleria Civica, Casa Caredda Loy, and the Churches of San Giovanni and Santa Maria Maddalena. A short distance from the town are the Is Janas caves, also known as "caves of the fairies" due to the presence of three large stalagmites.

About Gianni Franceschi

Dear Tenants,

I was born in Lanusei Sardinia. At the young age of 19th I came to The Netherlands where since 1976 I'm working for The Dow Chemical Company in Terneuzen. Beside my own job, I began with the renting of vacation homes on the eastern coast of Sardinia; all these units belong to family and some good friends of mine. The owner on place, will welcome you with open arms, although, I do have all the responsibility for a smooth and proper running of your vacation and as intermediary between you and the owner of the property. Feel free to come over with your queries by email.

Cheers, Gianni.

Gianni Franceschi purchased this bungalow in 1999

Why Gianni Franceschi chose Tortolì

The variety of landscapes and nature that has largely been left untouched make the Province of Ogliastra an ideal place for excursions on foot, by bicycle or on horseback. It is possible to walk from the mountains to the sea, following the course of subterranean rivers between centuries-old woods, wildflowers and wildlife, and reaching coves of incredible beauty.

Particularly interesting from this point of view is the territory of Baunei, with its karst valleys and the Golgo Plateau that bears the deepest gorge in Europe, Su Sterru. In the Province of Ogliastra visitors can also board the characteristic "green train," a service sponsored by Sardinia's Railway. The train takes tourists right through the heart of the island to visit some of its most beautiful places, often inaccessible and so hidden that one can only reach them on foot, and with great difficulty.

Speaking of "original" means of transport, one can also organize four-wheel excursions along routes that vary in length and difficulty, whether through forests, canyons, streams and valleys, and in pristine habitats hosting many animal species such as eagles and mouflons.

Ready for some speleology? See the spectacular caves of Grotta del Fico, Grotta Su Marmuri and Grotta Su Meraculu. Or go free climbing among the pinnacles and cliffs that emerge breathtakingly from the sea. Water lovers can enjoy excursions by motorboat or rubber dinghy, or undertake some scuba-diving!

What makes this bungalow unique

The cuisine of the Province of Ogliastra has strong Mediterranean flavors, not particularly elaborate, but genuine and tasty. Traditional gastronomy is based on products that come directly from the territory: typical appetizers are ham from Talana, Villagrande or Urzulei, but also sausage and bacon.

Cheese here equals classic pecorino or su casu axedu, a fresh cheese with an acidic taste made from sheep or goat milk. All this is accompanied by a variety of bread, including pistoccu, made of semolina and flour, and su modditzosu, a very soft and sweet bread prepared with durum wheat semolina, fresh ricotta cheese or mashed potatoes.

Among the first courses: culurgiones, (ravioli with ricotta and pecorino) and malloreddus (Sardinian dumplings), usually prepared with pork sausage. Among the main courses, one can enjoy roast suckling pig, roast lamb, goat or sheep.

Many desserts, including pabassinas and amaretti (sweets made with almonds, raisins and vino cotto), gattou (a crunchy sweet made with almonds and caramel sauce) and pardulas (made with cream cheese and flavored with grated orange or lemon).

Finally, the wine: the most popular is undoubtedly the red Cannonau, the most representative DOC wine of the island, renowned and marketed throughout the world.

The Province of Nuoro is situated in east-central Sardinia. Overlooking the Tyrrhenian Sea on its east, it is bordered by the Provinces of Sassari and Olbia-Tempio on its north, by the Province of Oristano in the west, and the Provinces of Cagliari and Ogliastra to its south. It spreads out for 1,519 square miles (16.3% of Sardinian territory) and is the second-largest province in Sardinia, after Sassari.

Nuoro Province comprises 52 communes, including Nuoro and Siniscola, but only one-percent of the territory is occupied by urban areas: the rich and diverse natural heritage dominates the province from coast to mountains.

It is also home to the most important massif on Sardinia, Gennargentu.

Orri Beaches
Car: recommended

The area around Tortoli' has a lot to be proud of ! Bone-white beaches, pristine sea water, enchanting views and untouched nature; words can't really express the beauty of this rocky coast where high cliffs hide wonderful beaches and coves. We recommend the most evoking creek of Cala Luna, set amongst a woodlands of oleanders, boasting six huge grottos opening up into the white beach. Within a short distance is Cala Goloritzè, emerald green sea and a rocky arch with a 140 metres high pinnacle,

Cala Sisine and the two inlets of Cala Biriola and Cala Mariolu. Almost undiscovered and distant, those beaches are accessible only by boat. The beaches of Ogliastra, running after one another in the almost 1800 kilometres of coast, sometime interrupted by rocky formations and port constructions, frame real paradise-like corners. They are places of incredible enchantment and captivating views of kaleidoscopian beauty.

On the eastern side as on the western one, to the north as to the south, Sardinian coasts make a charming sequence of pastel blue waters alternating with the emerald sea, while candid shores give way to stretches of golden sand or to cliffs carved by time. The beaches of Sardinia may appear savage at times, and at times mundane, but nonetheless they create a special frame for a holiday in the island, a mosaic full of colours and unforgettable shades.

The Ogliastra stretches from the high basin of the Flumendosa up to the eastern slope of the Gennargentu, facing out onto the Tyrrheanian Sea with its tall, rocky coast, of spectacular beauty. It also includes, on its southern borders, a part of the historical territory of the ancient marquisate of Quirra. It is the least populated province in Italy: the territory, almost exclusively mountainous, is to a large extent covered by woods and pastures.

Even if now it has also become an important tourist centre, the Ogliastra also continues to live off its traditional activities such as its sheep rearing (most tasty is the pecorino cheese and other cheeses, such as the cas'e fitta and the casu axeru), its agriculture and wine-production (the famous Cannonau of Jerzu), and craftsmanship.

The awareness of the importance of safeguarding the territory has pushed the Regional Government and the Municipalities to invest in the reforestation and in the exploitation of the wood areas, where it is possible to go on excursions to discover its naturalistic and archaeological patrimony.

The variety of the coastal landscape is one of the great wealths of the territory. In the north the vertical calcareous cliffs are found in small, silent coves, such as the famous Cala Goloritzè, accessible only by boat or on foot: Ogliastra is the land of trekking par excellence. More to the south, in the territories of Arbatax, Tortolì and Gairo, the wide sandy beaches such as Cea, San Gemiliano, Orrì, and Musculedda, alternate with the rocks of red porphyry, granite or to the unusual black beach of Coccorocci.

The Ogliastra is one of those marvellous places in which, between the mountain and the sea, at every bend we discover a different landscape.

The area in the middle of the east coast, Ogliastra, with its small, all year round inhabited localities offers great possibilities of a wonderful beach vacation at numerous beaches (sandy or rocky). And plenty to explore in the reach mountain and high plateau routes. A Ferry Port (Arbatax) and a small airport (Tortoli) facilitate the connection to this still relatively unexplored area.

Ogliastra: Mountains, rocks, crystalline sea: this is the landscape that is found in the territories that make up this section of Sardinia, that is, the Ogliastra with its ‘Tacchi’ (mountain outcrops), desert areas and small isolated coves; the Gennargentu with its snow-covered mountain tops and its skies, playground to the majestic golden eagle; and finally the Supramonte, an uncontaminated paradise of still unexplored caves, centuries-old forests and archaeological and naturalistic treasures.

In these areas the keen sports enthusiasts can find their dream: in fact, there is all the space needed to practice equestrian sports, even long rides on the beaches, to climb up the tall, vertical rocky walls that look out onto the sea, to do a variety of surfing activities, to go trekking and go on mountain bike excursions, all pleasant alternatives to visit otherwise inaccessible areas.
