The space

A stazzo is the typical rural settlement of Gallura, the region north of Sardinia characterized by extreme dispersion of the population in the territory: the first settlers, instead of founding villages, decided to spread in tiny family units that had to be entirely self-sufficient, as they were distant from each other sometimes for kilometres. Thus the inhabitants of the stazzo were at the same time farmers and shepherds, capable of building houses, stone walls, fences, making tools, clothes, shoes and everything they could possibly need. This way of life is now considered a proper culture in its own right, “the stazzo culture”. Being a very barren land rich in granite boulders, the stazzo boundaries often stretched for several hundred hectares. The house was the center of the unit and around it were built, often in circular shape, the stockyards, the orchard, the vineyard, vegetable garden and fields.

Many of these features are still found in our old stazzo which was abandoned in the '60s, and miraculously escaped questionable remakes in "smeraldiano" style. This has enabled us to intervene with a careful restoration, leaving the signs that time has imprinted on the old structures intact.
We used only recycled materials, and each operation was preceded by painstaking observations and research on building methods and lifestyles of those who preceded us, to avoid the risk of altering proportions and harmonies that only the wisdom and sensitivity of generations of farmers were able to create.
Particular attention has been paid to the outside, in order to integrate quiet corners where you can relax against a backdrop of majestic granite stones and old shady trees.

We spent the most amazing week in Sardinia with Marta and her wonderful family. The hospitality was second to none. Due to flight delays, we arrived later than scheduled and had a little trouble finding the house in the dark, however Andrea kindly drove to meet us. We finally …

A very cosi accommodation in a tranquil area out in the nature. The host was so friendly and invited us to a wonderful autentic dinner. Hardly recommended for all those who like tranquillity and an autentic sardian accommodation... and dogs... they were so cute.

Non ricordo se mi sono innamorata prima di Andrea o prima della Gallura, ma da allora vivo qui.
