Time Travel Sardinia: sleeping in hut rooms

Not only the best sea: this area of Sardinia is also rich in historic heritage. There are a lot of archaeological sites, domus de janas, tombs and ritual places of the millennial culture of Sardinia.

 

The structure of L’Essenza is a reconstruction of the ancient quatrefoil nuraghe (kind of a dolmen with one central circular room and four rooms in the corners), just like the Nuraghe San Pietro that we have in the valley. A journey into prehistory a few steps from the sea, in a unique location in Sardinia with such a strong link between historical, cultural and tourist vocation. Here are exposed, like a small museum, important historical elements, from both arts and culture, and Sardinian antiques and ancient objects as braziers, stools, antique baskets for bread, primitive musical instruments and much more; and inside our hectare of land we have preserved the original fold of the shepherds who centuries ago grazed their cattle here.

L’Essenza has got the traditional structure of a quatrefoil nuraghe, a sensory oasis with four beautiful “pinnettos” with a sea view. The pinetto is the typical hut of the ancient shepherds of central Sardinia, with a circular stone base and a roof of resistant tree branches. Each pinetto is equipped with two comfortable beds and a private bath, whilst in the central common area we have a library, kitchenette, full wi-fi and, or course, a roaring fireplace to enjoy those long evenings.

Inside each room you will enjoy a color-aromatherapic path, each linked to a different aromatic plant of the Island.
