Just a note to tell you that the
Hotel/Restaurant Su Barchile in Orosei
Sardinia should be at the top of your list of places to dine/stay on the island.
Maria, Peppe and Antonella--family members who own and run this gem

hotel at all but you really made me want to visit - it sounds like a
really delightful home away from home.
