Berritta, located on a 30-hectare private property, is an original basalt stone hunting lodge once part of the 15th century feudal property belonging to the Barons of the area. Berritta has been meticulously restored to offer charming accommodations: 2 double bedrooms each with its own beautiful en suite marble baths.Upstairs is a low-ceiling, cozy loft with 3 single beds and 1 marble bath.The bamboo and chestnut ceilings are in the original Sardinia style.The spacious living room has a fireplace, tasteful antique furnishings, a full kitchen and dining area, and spectacular views of the property. In front of the lodge is a basalt stone terrace with teak dining table. In the back there is a garden area with lounge chairs and an enclosed laundry area. Berritta is perfect for getting away from it all even off-season while offering close proximity to the beach and the center of town.

Why Stefano chose Orosei

This property has been in my family for generations, and after being abandoned for several years, I lovely restored it.

What makes this House unique

This property is really unique because : (a) Location: While very close to town and to the beaches, it offers unparalleled seclusion and privacy. Please see the video one of our guest made while staying in Berritta. You can see how large the property by watching our video; (b) Beauty: It is an original basalt stone lodge, with wood beans and bamboo ceilings, typical of the area.

                                                              Ruhiges und gemütliches Landhaus

                                                              Gaisa K.Bonn, Germany

                                                              Wir hatten eine sehr schöne erholsame Zeit in Orosei!

                                                              Das Haus liegt wunderbar friedlich in einem einsamen Tal, aber man ist in ein paar Minuten im Ort, wo dann genug los ist. Das Haus ist supergemütlich und sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet, wirklich so, wie alles auf dem Bildern aussieht. Es ist sauber und sehr gepflegt. Die Betten und Bäder sind tip top und die Küchenecke ist gut ausgestattet. Die zwei Schlafzimmer unten haben eine Klimaanlage, die wir auch dringend brauchten, denn in der Zeit, wo wir da waren, war gerade eine Hitzewelle. Wenn dann aber der Wind um das Haus geht, hält man es auch bei Hitze im Garten sehr gut aus.

                                                              Im Haus haben alle Fenster und Türen Moskitonetze, so dass man im Haus keine Mücken hat, wenn man die Haustür immer schnell zumacht.

                                                              Wunderschöne Umgebung mit einem so großen Grundstück, dass man keine anderen Häuser sieht und auch niemanden hört. Toll zum Entspannen!

                                                              In der Hauptsaison muss man schon ein wenig suchen, um Strandabschnitte zu finden, die nicht so voll sind, aber die Auswahl ist groß. Toll ist es, wenn man ein motorisiertes Schlauchboot mietet (am besten in Cala Gonone, auch wenn die Fahrt durch die Berge lang ist, aber es lohnt sich, weil man dann nach Norden den schönsten Küstenabschnitt vor sich hat), ist aber mit 280€ pro Tag plus ca.35-50€ Sprit nicht gerade billig.

                                                              Wenn man Essen gehen will, sollte man in der Hautsaison (Mitte August) immer vorher reservieren, denn es ist alles sehr voll.

                                                              Die Organisation ( Buchung, Bestätigung, Zahlung, Einchecken, etc) lief alles super, der Vermieter ist wirklich sehr nett und die Hauskeeperin Vanna eine sehr liebe herzliche Frau, sie spricht allerdings nur Italienisch. Aber dafür ist Stefanos Englisch super.

                                                              Sein Wein (er baut ihn selber an) liegt im Haus im Regal und kann gekauft werden, sehr lecker! Also bloß keinen Wein im Supermarkt kaufen!

                                                              We had a wonderful time in your house and we really recommend it!

                                                              Thank you Stefano!

                                                              Dear Gaisa, thank you for your review. I am so glad you liked the house, the surrounding areas and ... our wine. I look forward to having you again in the future. Stefano

                                                              Wundervolles Beritta

                                                              Berritta ist so wundervoll wie es sich auf den Bildern präsentiert. Eine friedliche ruhige Oase um die Seele baumeln zu lassen. Wir, vier Erwachsene und ein Kind, hatten einen wundervollen Aufenthalt im Haus. Von der herzlichen Begrüssung durch die Haushälterin bis zur Verabschiedung hat alles gepasst. Ebenfalls die Reservation, Buchung Bezahlung und Depot Rückerstattung haben einwandfrei funktioniert. Wir können Berritta nur wärmstens empfehlen. Einzig zu erwähnen, dass man motorisiert sein sollte um zum Haus zu gelangen. Wir sind total happy mit unserem Urlaub und kommen bestimmt wieder. Karen und Peter

                                                              Thank you so much for your review, which makes all the hard work behind it worthwhile. I look forward to having you again. Best regards, Stefano

                                                              Lovely rural retreat

                                                              Stuart B.

                                                              We had a great stay at Berrita in late October. The house was just as it appears on the website, if not better. Its been renovated and furnished very stylishly with exposed beams and stonework. It's secluded location and rural ambience offers a great contrast to the usual holiday villa.The living room area is particularly comfortable and great for relaxing. However, if you want to do a lot of cooking, you may find the kitchen area a bit limited.

                                                              Stefano was very welcoming and responded quickly to all our questions before the holiday and there is good information at the house about local restaurants etc. Its a shame that its a bit too too far to walk to town but that's the price for being quiet and secluded. There's lots to do locally - the nearest beaches are around 10 minutes drive and the best ones are about 30 minutes away. The mountains too are within easy reach and have great walking and views. We would definitely recommend this property as a unique and relaxing base for exploring this beautiful part of Sardinia.

                                                              Dear Stuart, thank you for your review and for recommending the lodge to future guests. We look forward to having you again.

                                                              Outstanding

                                                              Arnaud P.

                                                              We were looking for a house with taste and character and quite comfortable in the Orosei area. This is extraordinary difficult for any reason ...and we discovered Berritta, such a little gem. The house offers all the amenities you can expect whilst being really attractive: old stones and masonry, beams, wood everywhere, and all that charm that make you imediately feel at home. The location is ideal, in one of the less developed region of Sardegna: situated away from the main local road (a few minutes drive on a track), away from it all and so peaceful, it is close to the some of the best unspoilt beaches that you can enjoy on the island. Also, moutains are closed by, offering nice opportunities to walk and get some fresh air in summer and enjoy magnificent views. Orosei, the nearest local town, is a 5 minutes drive away, offering all you can look for. We would strongly recommend Berritta, and certainly will want to come back.

                                                              Owner's Response:

                                                              While offering modern amenities, we strived to keep the original features of this century-old Sardinian hunting lodge, including its basalt stones, chestnuts beams, bamboo ceilings and Sardinian antiques. We very much look forward to having you again in the near future.

                                                              Beautiful property in a wonderful location

                                                              The house was lovely, secluded and very peaceful. Ideally located for exploration of the beaches and mountains. It was very well maintained both inside and out and the owner was extremely helpful. Would recommend to anyone.

                                                              Thank you for your review. As the location is ideal, we take pride maintaining the house in pristine conditions. We look forward to having you again.

                                                              Orosei NU, Italy

                                                              Immersed in a secluded 30-hectares private property with ancient olives trees, Berritta is only 5min from Orosei's historic center and just 10min drive from the beach: a perfect base for exploring Sardinia, with its pristine beaches, crystalline waters, stunning sights, rich culture, superb food and local wine. Within a 30 min.drive south is the Gennargentu national park (offering unforgettable trekking) and the surrounding beaches featured in such movies as Swept Away. Up north are the nationally-protected beaches of Berchida, Bidderosa and Capo Comino or Costa Smeralda is 1.30h away. In the summer, there are cultural and musical events in nearby towns. Whether you want to explore Sardinia or just relax at the nearby beaches or even at home on your secluded rustic property Berritta is the ideal location for a rural/beach/laid back family vacation or a romantic get-away. Because of the usual warm weather year round, Berritta is also an ideal off-season vacation.
