Lotzorai is a small village, only 1 km from the sea, surrounded by unspoilt countryside in the centre of the Ogliastra plain. Over the last twenty years the population has almost doubled thanks to the strong influence of tourism in the area. Girasole's territory extends for about 13 km and farming plays an important role in the community.
Forty kilometres of coast in the wildest part of Sardinia, sheer cliffs dotted with coves and beaches that are the real jewels of the Mediterranean. One of the last natural paradises, where faunistic species such as, the Corsican seagull, the peregrine falcon, and the crested cormorant nest and live in harmony with the environment, a land that is jealously guarded by the custodians of the territory, the local shepherds whose flocks of goats graze free amid the mountains.
Excursions aboard small motor boats for groups of approx 12 people. Discover the charm of the Orosei coast, explore the creeks and coves on your pleasant outing, pausing along the way to swim in the most beautiful crystal-clear sea of the Mediterranean. See the Ogliastra islets, Pedra Longa, the water springs of Baus, the cave of the doves, the inlets of Porto Pedrosu and Portu Cuau (on the bottom of the latter is the wreck of the cargo boat Levante, which sank in the 1960s). During our mini-cruise we can stop at the splendid beaches of Cala Goloritzé, the Sorgenti beach, the Gabbiano beach and the beaches of Cala Mariolu and Cala Biriola. In addition we can visit the spectacular “Fico” cave, where the monk seal was last seen.
The modern Tourist Port of Baunei and Saint Maria Navarrese has been inaugurated in 1998, a sure and pleasant shelter in the oriental Coast of Sardinia that can entertain up to 340 boats with a maximum length up to 30 meters. The personnel is competent and cordial and the variety of the offered services are able to satisfy the different demands of the diportistis. From June 2005 the port has been endowed with the 'Pequod', the lifter to otherwise allow the access on board of the skilled people, becoming so the 'first accessible port' of Sardinia.
In 2006 for the second consecutive time the Tourist Port has gotten the prestigious recognition Blue Flag of the tourist landings, that is assigned for quality of the landing, services and safety measures, environmental education and information. The Tourist Port every year increases his presences thanks to the quality of the services that offers and to the magic scenery where the is drawn the port that from the sense of the nature thanks to the green that surrounds it.
Lotzorai, a friendly Ogliastra village, is located between two rivers, (Pramaera and Girasole), 1000 metres from the seashore, a position that accounts for the pleasant unceasing breeze tempering its summertime heat.
The village is at the centre of a huge amphitheatre formed by Monte Oro that overlooks it from Baunei, and the distant Gennargentu tops standing out against a terse cerulean sky. The mountain semicircle protects this Ogliastra valley from the chilly winters fostering its spring-like climate. For Lotzorai the Roman saying does apply: “Hic Ver Assiduum” here spring is eternal !
Coming from Cagliari, Lotzorai is announced by the Castello della Medusa, the building that dominates the village like a sturdy medieval knight on guard. A rare view can be enjoyed from the castle: the sea below and the tiny isle of Ogliastra, a few hundred feet away from the coast, are so close, one could almost touch them.
Today in the village and in its hamlet Tancau, there are several hotels and restaurants, five camp sites and an area reserved for campers, a large open-air discotheque and many other places where one can spend a pleasant evening.
In the hinterland, just a few kilometres from the village, are interesting complexes of domus de janas and other archaeological remains. Su Padentino (4 km from Lotzorai, on the road to Talana) is a lush forest of century old ilexes, cork-oaks and carobs, with areas for safe barbecues, and a picnic area with stone tables and benches.
Situated off the western coast of Italy, Sardinia is a beautiful Mediterranean island with stunning beaches and panoramic views of the mountains and sea. Its southern tip faces Africa, while its north shore lies just a few miles from Corsica. Sardinia, despite becoming an exclusive, luxurious holiday destination in recent years, remains unspoilt by tourism. With its turquoise seas, granite rock formations and lush vegetation, the island is a jewel in the Mediterranean.
The culture of Sardinia is colourful and vibrant; historical sites depict the various invasions over the centuries and the mesh of different cultures can be seen today in the island's archaeology and architecture. Roman remains exist at Cagliari, Nora and Tharros, while the conical towers of the Nuraghi are scattered around the countryside.
Sardinian food is vibrant and delicious. Its influences are Phoenician, Spanish, Italian and Carthaginian. The locally sourced rustic dishes such as wild boar and spit-roasted pig, are complemented with couscous, artichokes and aubergines. The warm Mediterranean sea ensures a wealth of exquisite seafood features on every menu, such as lobster and octopus, and the top quality hotels on the island combine locally sourced ingredients with an international level of gastronomy, created by top chefs.
The north east coast of Sardinia features the exclusive region of Costa Smeralda, which often attracts fashion, sports and film star celebrities with its luxury 4 and 5 star hotels and resorts. The streets of Porto Cervo, the capital of the area, are lined with designer boutiques and restaurants, offering the finest dining experiences. In the summer months, its harbour is filled with millionaires' yachts. The Costa Smeralda (Emerald Coast) is also one of the most naturally beautiful areas of Sardinia, with the waters turning to hues of green beyond its sandy beaches. There are protected islands scattered offshore, which form part of the National Park, and many of these are uninhabited.
The south of Sardinia is home to its capital, Cagliari, and in this region there are endless miles of soft, white beaches, coves to explore and opportunities to dive among the exotic sea life. Inland, visitors can explore the Sardinian history and uncover traditional villages and hamlets among the hills that are untouched by tourism.
Guests can opt to stay in a high quality Sardinian hotel with views over the Mediterranean and dine by candlelight on romantic terraces. The more independent travellers might prefer to rent a private villa with a fresh water pool warmed by the Sardinian sun, and discover secret beaches and coves a mere stone's throw away. Yachts are available for hire, as well as boat tours, and the island of La Maddalena and its neighbours are well worth exploring for their haunting granite cliffs, lush vegetation and exquisite, occasionally pink sandy beaches.
Sardinia is an island of outstanding natural beauty that exists in harmony with its tastefully designed, luxury resorts. It is this, as well as the country's enviable location in the central Mediterranean, that makes Sardinia a most sought after holiday destination.
Its varying scenery and colours makes Baunei one of the most interesting territories not only in the Ogliastra region, but also on the entire island. Its multi-shaped environment spreads over two of the most important natural monuments in Sardinia: the Supramonte and the Gennargentu.
Baunei boasts spectacular panoramas and lush, colourful forests enriched by fauna e flora. It's the largest territory in Ogliastra and extends to the sea, offering the visitor its natural beauties such as the Cala Goloritzè to the Cala Luna coastline; ripped stacks overlooking the sea like Punta Pedra Longa otherwise known as 'Agugliastra' and the nearby seaside village of Santa Maria Navarrese.
We highly recommend visiting its most significant monument, the Torre dei Saraceni, which majestically rises on the beach.
It has the shape of a truncated cone and was built to thwart off the pirates' raids, sometime towards the end of the 1800's, on the ruins of an earlier outpost from the 1600's.
The homonymous medieval chiesa and an antique well close to the tower are also worth seeing. It's distinguished for the richness of its historical evidence even from an archaeological point of view, famous for the pre-historic betilius of Golgo, unique in its kind because of its human-like sculpted face. Unfortunately, the nuraghic complexes of Co 'e Serra and Orgoduri are in quite a state of decay.
Noteworthy are the Tombe dei Giganti of Santu Pedru and Annida, the great monument of Doladorgiu and the Nuraghe Nuragheddu and Alvu.
One of the most interesting sites is the Medieval church of S. Pietro in Golgo, close to the town and built in the XVIII Century. It is surrounded by characteristic 'cumbessias' where the festivities of the 29th of June are celebrated. For passionate speleologists, this territory offers numerous points of interest, the most important being the Su Sterru pothole located in Golgo. It is the deepest in all of Europe and a frequent destination point for many excursionists.
Situated on the slopes of Mount Santo, the town of Baunei has a charming, panoramic position that dominates the entire area. On its main street, a XVII Century parish dedicated to St. Nicholas appears with its unique dome, painted by Andrea Lusso in 1700-Century style. December 6th the patron St. Nicholas is celebrated and sometime in the middle of August, a fest celebrating goats is held.
The municipality organises various events throughout the year, mostly during the summer, including: evenings of folklore, music and dance where the protagonists are the beautiful costumes enriched by precious materials.
Ogliastra, a fairly recent discovery with its beautiful coasts and mountainous interior. Its territory, wedged between sea and mountain, offers a vast array of unique landscapes. A paradise of remarkable beauty situated along the eastern side of Sardinia, where nature is at its best. Some people think that the name Ogliastra derives from the wild olive trees growing in great numbers in the region, but more credited sources link it to the Agugliastra, a huge monolith overlooking the sea.
The Ogliastra coasts are splendid oases set between sea and rock, rugged nature to dazzle us with some of the most fascinating marine landscapes of the Mediterranean. Leaving from the north we encounter the renowned coves of Cala Luna, Cala Sisine, Cala Mariolu and Cala Goloritzé, accessible only by boat or on foot; further south there are the beautiful beaches of Tancau, Girasole, Orrì, Cea ,Barisardo, Cardedu, Coccorrocci and the gulf of Sarrala.
Enchanting, too is the landscape that climbs up the hills as far as the Gennargentu mountains, indulging the eyes with scenarios of rare beauty. Ogliastra is a land that must be relished slowly, it deserves more than just the hurried glance of conventional tourism. The entire territory is scattered with archaeological monuments, well-worth visiting: Nuraghi, Domus de Janas, Tombe dei Giganti and Menhir.
One can follow trekking itineraries to the discovery of unforgettable places on foot, horseback or by bike, car or land-rover; walking from the mountains towards the sea following underground waterways amid century old forests, flowers, wild animals to reach incredibly beautiful coves. For those who prefer to travel via the sea, an excursion aboard one of the many motor-boats that cruise along the coast is ideal. The following pages are dedicated to those who wish to discover a paradise of priceless beauty, its culture, its people and its hospitality: Ogliastra. No printed image can fully describe the magic and harmony of this land.

The principal dish of meat is pork: on the spit, barbecued or buried into a hole and roasted over a bed of leaves and aromatic herbs. Instead, for the few people who appreciate the particular taste of the entrails, the 'trattalia' is the most typical dish of Ogliastra: it is a string of lamb or kid entrails roasted on the spit. But there are savoury dishes for vegetarians as well, like the 'coccoi prena', a kind of flat bread stuffed with mashed potatoes and pecorino cheese (there is a variety with gourd orcourgettes, called the 'coccoi 'e corcoriga'). Otherwise, you can taste the famous 'casu axedu'; it consists of slices of cheese very similar to yoghurt, but thicker, made with sheep or goat milk, or mixed.

How to get there
Why go to Sardinia ?
Because you're looking for a brilliant Italian break without the noise and stress of the mainland. And because Sardinia has some of the Mediterranean's most seductive beaches, yet within tootling distance of some great restaurants, agreeable bars and the soothing evening ritual of the passeggiata.
Mention Sardinia and most people think of the glitz of the Costa Smeralda and dodgy dealings in Berlusconi's villas, but there's plenty more. The Costa Smeralda itself is a tiny strip of coast studded with elite hotels, five-star beaches and Beverly Hills-type shops, but if swish ain't your thing you'll also find acres of swimming spots to die for on every coast, but without the superstar pretensions.
When you've had your fill of those, there's plenty more to divert you: th...
