Dear guest, when you choose to stay at our traditional Sardinian house here in the historic center of Orosei, you will experience a different kind of lifestyle. The house, built in 1600, was constructed and restored using relatively few materials: earth, stone, lime, pipes, juniper-wood beams, and hand-made tiles. This was the kind of house that our farmers lived in during centuries past! The house was restored in 2004 under my artistic direction and today it is equipped with all of the comforts necessary for a pleasant vacation. And less than 100 meters from the house you will find: a market, a bar, restaurants, a pharmacy, a deli, laundry, fruit and vegetable shops, the central piazza, many historic churches, and an extraordinary museum planned by the architects Vittorio Gregotti and Loddi & Co.
You will be staying in the heart of the east coast of Sardegna, away from the main tourist areas, amongst the local residents. Staying among us, it will be easy to discover our traditions, foods and holidays, as well as our extraordinary natural sights.
We will be happy to share these places with you, to introduce you to the tastes of the fruit of our earth, and to help you plan itineraries for archaeological excursions and explorations of the inland areas and the sea.
The important holidays to discover in Orosei are: Sant'Antonio in January, the Barbaricino Carnival in February (with masks that are one-of-a-kind in the world, including the famous mask of Mammuthones), Easter (and its many rites of Spanish influence), the festival of "Santa Maria del Mare" (which takes pla
We have rented Casa Studio Architettura for a week and were very pleased with our stay. The owner is very helpful and caring! The apartment is spacious, housed and decorated with a personal touch. Bathroom and kitchen space without any complains. An adjacent inner courtyard is very lovely for eating outside!
The apartment is located in a old building in the old-town part of Orosei, no problems with noise, just the early church bell from a church which is 10 meters away, which for us was just a pleasant extra :).
Orosei itself lies away from the party-Sardegna and is the one of the places to be if you're looking for nature and peace. We rented a car and made several daytrips to beautiful beaches lying close and to the mountain villages as well. Several very nice options for hikers nearby.
Only the one thing - if you're coming by car through Nuoro and do not speak italian, have at least a GPS with good italian maps on you, maybe you'll get luck:)
But - as soon as we took the way which did not go through Nuoro everything went fine :)
"We thouroughly enjoyed our stay in Orosei. The accomodation was excellent, with character and superb cleanliness. The location of the studio flat was ideal with a great supermarket down the end of the road and good restaurants spread around the ancient town of Orosei. The town was unspoilt and while providing plenty of hustle and bustle in the town centre we were able to go back to our accomodation and enjoy quiet relaxing eveings. Our landlord was a superb host and made us feel welcome and kindly showed us round the town and the way to the beach on our arrival. We could't have asked more from our landlord or from the accomadation.
We would reccomend a car, this enabled us to explore different beaches and the rest of stunning coastlines of the Gulf of Orosei."
"We had an amazing holiday. The apartment was fantastic, the town full of splendid architecture and the beaches were beautiful, very un-spoilt and tranquill.
Cosimo the owner was extremely helpful to us, making sure we had all we needed for our holiday, by way of a tour of the beaches, town and ammenities when we arrived.
If you are looking for a peaceful break to a beautiful town then I would recommend this highly.
I would also recommend a car to experience Sardegna to the full."
Besser als die Photos! Diese kleine Wohnung ist einzigartig und mehr als zu empfehlen. Alles sehr der Bausubstanz gemäß perfekt stilsicher renoviert und im Herzen des Ortes gelegen. Zudem im April frühsommerliches Wetter und so gut wie keine Touristen. Das Tempo des Ortes Balsam für unsere gestressten Großstadtseelen. Orosei hat selbst Charakter zu bieten ist aber auch ein guter Ausgangspunkt für strahlende Strandtage oder einsame Bergtouren. Cosimo, mille grazie! Lydia und Eckhard aus Hamburg
Für alle, die abseits der Touristenströme etwas vom Leben auf Sardinien kennenlernen möchten, ist das Studio d´architettura ein sehr schöner und authentischer Ort um seinen Urlaub zu verbringen.
Der Architekt Cosimo und seine Frau haben den einst verfallenen Häusern im historischen Stadtkern von Orosei ein neues Gesicht verliehen und diese zu Ferienwohnungen umgebaut.
Mit unseren zwei kleinen Kindern haben wir uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Alle waren beeindruckt von den vielen zu entdeckenden Details und den an den Wänden hängenden Zeugnissen der Vergangenheit, die der liebevoll eingerichteten Wohnung ihren besonderen Charakter geben...
Der große verwinkelte Raum mit Hochbett und der pflanzenbewachsene Innenhof geben genügend Rückzugsmöglichkeiten für alle.
Besonders hervorzuheben ist die Herzlichkeit, mit der wir von Cosimo, Giacomina und ihrer Familie empfangen wurden.
Per tutti quanti chi vogliono conoscere la vita in Sardegna lontano dai turisti, il studio d´architettura è un luogo molto bello ed autentico per passare le sue vacanze.
L´architetto cosimo con la sua moglie hanno dato un nuovo aspetto (?) alle case andate in rovina al centro storico di Orosei cambiandole in case per le vacanze.
Con I nostri figli piccoli ci siamo trovati molto bene. Tutti siamo stati impressionati di tutti questi dettagli e degli oggetti testimonianze del passato pendenti al muro che danno al apartamento il suo carattere particolare.
Lo spazio grande angolare con una galleria e con il cortile pieno di piante danno abbastanza possibilità di ritirarsi.
Ma particolaramente da rilevare e la cordialità con la quale siamo stati ricevuti da Cosimo e la sua famiglia.

Our friends and guests (mostly artists and architects) choose our old house because it is full of charm ... because you sleep under a roof of reeds and old beams of juniper, because walking barefoot on a handmade terracotta because it is easy and interesting to live close to the local people, eat local products to their doorstep, and then easily you can reach the sea walls to free climbing, walking along the river, take a walk at night in downtown town, visit the monuments ....
The important holidays to discover in Orosei are: Sant'Antonio in January, the Barbaricino Carnival in February (with masks that are one-of-a-kind in the world, including the famous mask of Mammuthones), Easter (and its many rites of Spanish influence), the festival of "Santa Maria del Mare" (which takes place on the beautiful beaches of Orosei), "San Giacomo Maggiore" in July, the country fairs in August, and "Su Remediu" in September.
