The beauty of Sardinia is its climate and the possibility to enjoy it during the autumn’s months. This is the main reason not to hesitate to reach your Sardinian residence in Porto Cervo and Costa Smeralda and take a break from the rhythms of the big city.
The Sardinian autumn offers in its first months the possibility to continue to enjoy its seaside, but also to discover traditions and flavors of the heart of the Island, Autunno in Barbagia, is one of the main events not to be missed.
A couple of hours by car from the Costa Smeralda a warm welcome in the heart of Sardinia. From September to December in Barbagia the small communities open their doors and everyone is welcome.
Autunno in Barbagia was born in 1996 when in Oliena an event called”Cortes Apertas” is organized, where the historical houses of the village open their courtyards and among these takes place a food and wine and an artistic itinerary. This formula begins to arouse curiosity and is successful.It is a winning idea: revive the historical centres of small villages that are moving towards a slow abandonment. In the year 2000 the Autunno in Barbagia event was born, in which other villages also participate, for a total of 27 locations.
This is why today we invite you to visit these small villages, it is not only music and traditional dances : come and caress the velvet of the suits of the Mamuthones in Mamoiada,taste the chestnuts in Aritzo, be enchanted by the hands of the housewives who”embroider” the puff pastry of “su pistiddu” or by the filigree jewelry.
These and many other uniqueness are ready to welcome and amaze you.
It is easy to be charmed by.
