Trekking

This hiking bring us into the heart of the protected marine area of Capo Carbonara, the extreme promontory point in the south-east of Sardinia. The beaches running the length of the promontory, their brilliant sand with traces of quartz, are among the most beautiful in the world. Leaving the hotel we will reach the Notteri lagoon, in 1,5 km, by a short tarmac section and gravel road. This is the first highlight of the day, we will go around the lake, towards the tower of Porto Giunco. The stretch of water of the Notteri pond is separated from the sea by a thin tongue of sand. during the winter and spring months hosts flamingos, seagulls, shearwaters and partridges. Also during early spring, before that all the water is evaporeted, flamingos are here to eat, they arrive from Cagliari lagoon in the morning and flying back at sunset. The flamingos show their most beautiful colors when they are flying together. A short section through the beach, on sand and granite rocks gives a different style to this hiking. Now we start climbing up to the tower, the view point, a different view of this pearl. In 1 km the trail leads us on a low hill, 50 meters asl, along a path that winds through the vegetation, Mediterranean bushes, mediterranean fragances and colors. On the top there is a watching tower, when we are there it easy to undestand why? When your breathing is back and we have recovered from the shock caused by the splendor we can speak about the net of towers going all around the Sardinia coast to spot pirates raids. From the view point we can see Capo Carbonara Promontory, the extreme south east cape of Sardinia and the small island, Isola dei Cavoli, with the two lighthouses looking at each others, from the two shores of the thin branch of sea. In 2 km we will reach Capo Carbonara, by “Cava Usai” bay (the name explains us something about the place. It was an important granite quarry). Capo Carbonara has a very elongated shape, like a last attempt of the granite rock of prolongation towards the sea, and the island, in front of us, it is a clear demonstration of this. Now halfway through our journey, we must take the way back to the hotel. We will follow a slightly different route from the one that brought us here, so you can give even more joy to our eyes and our spirit

Discover Villasimius By Mountain Bike 

It is an excursion suitable also for beginners.

There are not big climbs or technical sections. We think is the best way to admire the coast of Villasimius and to have a complete view of its best beaches. We start from the hotel and we go towards north west, on cycle path and minor roads, mainly on tarmac for the first kilometers. Our first destination is Punta Molentis. It is a tongue of land, mainly sand and granit, nestled beetwen two branchs of emerald sea. From here we follow the coast,up and down on single tracks, bay after bay. We have time also for a stop at the best beaches -Simius and Porto Giunco. A well deserved rest, at the kiosk or swimming in the sea. The second part of the raid we will explore the Notteri laguna, a salt lake that host some flamingos and is divided from the sea only by a thin strip of sand. From here we go towards the south cape of Sardinia, Capo Carbonara, that offer a great view of Porto Giunco beach.

The offer is valid for a minimum of 2 people , price per person from € 40, the offer is valid upon request and availability. ( Service powered by wild trails )

Be Fearless Mountain Bike all day!

Expert riders excursion 45 km, total descens 1600 mt.

Start Point: Vecchie Carceri Castiadas. We manage the transfer from the Hotel to the starting point. It is 17 km far from the Hotel and it takes about 20 minutes by car.

Castiadas was founded in the ‘800 as agricultural penal colony. Since then they began reclamation work in this plain that extends from the granite slopes of the mountains of the “Seven Brothers” till the sea. The penal colony was closed in the 50s but has remained the agricultural vocation of the territory. The first part of the route is along the old road connecting with Solanas, a dirt road that in 5 km gradual climb brings us up to the pass of “Gutturu Frascu”, 400 mters a.s.l. We are now between Mount Minni Minni, that separates us from Villasimus, and the slopes of Mont Arbu, southeast block of granite mountains that form the Sette Fratelli Park.
To reach our next goal – the top of Mon’Arbu and wonderful rock formation called “the Sphinx” – we have to ride for about 10 km, it is 800 meters a.s.l.
The first part of the climb, for about 4 km, we cycle on a double track, a dirt road, with 8% of gradient, average. The terrain is granitic, with stones and gulleis. Then, we stay on a kind of plateau, at about 700 meters a.s.l. into a forest of oaks and arbutus.
“The sphinx” is a massive granite block, surrounded by other big stones,
shaped by wind over thousands of years, which gave him this special form that inspired its name. One rock is splitted in two parts, like it was cutted with a sword.. From the top of the main block we can enjoy all the view till the coast. After a well deserved rest and a snack, It is time to go back. We are not going to retrace exactly the same route we took to arrive here. We are doing a loop, so we carry on exploring the forest on the plateau and go down by a single
track, a path that winds between the Mediterranean bushes and bring us back to Gutturu Frascu. We have done already 25 km and the last climb is just in front of us.Monte Minni Minni, 3,5 km and 300 meters of ascent to reach the top. Once on the top you will forget all the efforts, that why we love mtb, to admire spectacular landscape like this. All the coast of Villasimius, with Capo Carbonara far in the distance.
It is adrenaline time now, ready for the descent. Our team of guides will give you some tips to ride safetely. The most important thing is not to lose the concentration and relax. It is pure fun for about 8 km. The last 6 km, between the orchards, in the plains, allow us to take a breath and go back to the hotel, smiling and satisfied.
