A Slow holiday in Sardinia: homemade cakes, blooming garden, rustic suite ... hike among cork oaks, snooze in a hammock, snorkel rocky bays (15/20 km away).
Chivoni's quiet and relaxed atmosphere and its proximity (5 km) to the small country village of Luogosanto not yet tainted by mass tourism make it the ideal place for a holiday in close contact with the sea, nature and tradition.
Built in 1850, modernised in 2003, the plain granite 'stazzu gallurese' still keeps its reed-woven ceiling, its corner fireplace, its little windows.
The double bedroom, with en suite bathroom, has a rustic bohemian décor – vine branches and sea shells - with relaxing colours and polished cement floor.
The house is surrounded by a large Mediterranean garden: olive trees, arbutus, myrtle, and rosemary. The vegetable garden and the fruit trees are strictly organic.
My name is Marzia, I was born in Milan where I lived until 2005, when I moved to Sardinia. I live in the countryside, in a fantastic and isolated place. I made my choice to escape from the city together with my boyfriend, sailing enthusiast, because we wanted to enjoy the Nature. In the end he left and I’m still here!
I love the silence, the mild weather during winter, the strong light in summer and the the sun. I like to walk on the beach off-season, when it’s deserted. I like kajak when it’s not windy. I like country feasts, in summer, where you can eat with lots of people all sitting together at very long tables and then dancing under the trees. I like to go to Maddalena, because take the ferry is always something special!
I like to go to open-air markets and taste different kind of cheese. I like to lay down on the warm sand in spring.
I like to spend some time in my garden reading a book and looking at the cows, my neighbours.
I like to share this Paradise with others!
