Su Barchile in Orosei Sardinia

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.

Su Barchile Sardinia

Maria, Peppe and Antonella--family members who own and run this gem of a small hotel (only 10 rooms) offer extraordinary food, simple and pristine decor throughout and the genuine hospitality that so defines native Sardinians.

Maria gives informal cooking lessons in the state of the art kitchen (I learned to make malloredus last year). This is a place that you will return to...close to Bidderossa, Cala Luna, etc.

When we first visited, a few years back now, my husband and I joined Maria for a cooking lesson in the kitchen (son Peppe can take you on a motorcycle jaunt and daughter Antonella is a sommelier and will lead tours of the area ) and I learned to make maccerones di busa, malloredus, fresh tomato sauce and a wonderful ravioli with ricotta and spinach.

The hotel is as thoughtfully put together as another superb nearby hotel called the Su Gologone, with a comparable sense of artistry and design, but when you walk into this tiny hotel and see the family sitting on the couch in the lobby together in the afternoon, kicking back before preparing the evening meal, you feel like you're family too.
