3 Nights in a beautiful hotel
Close to the beach
Galanias Hotel is a peaceful, idyllic place to wind down and relax and is ideal for couples in search of a sanctuary. It is situated 4km from the town of Barisardo and 600m from the sea and the beach and is comprised of three main buildings: in two of them there are 33 rooms and in the main building are the other 10 Superior rooms. The hotel has a pool, a restaurant, bar and bespoke Yoga Shala for group activities. They also offer a small gym and additional massage treatments by the hotel therapist available by appointment through Reception.
At Galanias Hotel you can enjoy the local, seasonal produce in a range of Mediterranean dishes prepared each day by the chef, dining by the pool with a glass of locally produced wine. Special dietary requirements can be accommodated, but please let us know when you book so the chef is aware of any dietary restrictions.
This area of Sardinia; Ogliastra, which is often referred to as the “island within and island” offers the heart, soul and eyes an abundance of pleasures. It is sheltered away from the overcrowded tourist areas like Costa Smeralda, Olbia, Alghero & Cagliari and offers some of the best beaches on the island in our opinion! The east coast offers protection form the “Maestrale” winds that often batter the western coast, the sea is a transparent turquoise and, unlike Costa Smeralda, this area has miles and miles of sandy beaches. Cardedu & Bari Sardo beaches offer the opportunity to walk over 10km of beach without interuption!
The area offers a diverse range of natural attractions; Mountains for walkers, mountain bikers and climbers, woodlands for nature lovers and explorers, beaches galore for sun worshippers.
It is, perhaps, the perfect location for those needing an oasis of nature, calm and bliss, far away from all the modern glitz and constant barrage of materialistic pressures and demands of our modern western society.
