About the property

3-bdrm 3-bath Hunting Lodge with charm on 30 hectares of private property

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.

Great for beach swimming until late Oct - outdoor activities all year around.

Why Stefano chose Nuoro

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

What makes this villa 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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Berritta was very nice, we enjoyed the property and had a good time there together with our friends, The entire region Orosei gulf + Gennargentu is very beautiful : we did quite a lot of trekking, snorkeling, ate very well."

Wundervolles Beritta

  • 5 of 5

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

Lovely rural retreat

  • 5 of 5

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.

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

  • 5 of 5

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.

the perfect place for holiday with or without kids

  • 5 of 5

Thanks for a wonderful 2-week holiday in a beautiful house.

We enjoyed our stay a lot. It was one of our nicest holidays ever, and the house contributed a lot to that! It's large, enough space for 2-4 adults (2 separate bed rooms with large beds and comfortable matrasses) and 3 children (three beds in the open gallery in the 1st floor). Also, it's very clean, and well-equipped, everything works. I had the impression that if ANYthing would have not worked, Stefano (the very kind and helpful owner) would have solved immediately!

Sardinia is a beautiful island. We spent a lot of time at the Bidderosa and Berchida beaches (you need a car for that), which are very clean and beautiful. Close by (theoretically to be reached by foot, but easier by car - -5min) are very clean and beautiful beaches also. We feel that the region around Orosei is especially nice because it's almost untouched, no large hotel complexes, and lots of nature. Orosei as a small city is very beautiful for Saridinia -- lots of old buildiings, very pretty, and very kind people. Altogether a very special place, and we'll be back!

Noteworthy: the owner has his own winery nearby, and his wines are offered in the house for a low price. Especially the red wine is fantastic!!

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 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.
