Wonderfully hospitable gem of a hotel tucked away in a magical mountain village, with slow ethos and a handful of good taste.


Sometimes, the word hotel feels mighty inadequate… when describing the Antica Dimora del Gruccione, for instance. Gabriella Belloni carefully-restored her great grand-parents’ 17th Century manor house in the heart of Santu Lussurgiu into a quirky and characterful gem dedicated to eco-friendly tourism and zero-km gastronomy restaurant. The 3 houses making this albergo diffuso combine with flair a number of cosy hideaways like the two patios, the library, the wine cellar, and the lounge with the roaring fire.

Open year round.

Double rooms start from 90 € per night. Use the calendar to find the rate and availability on a specific date and to book online.

  • The food! The Antica Dimora del Gruccione Restaurant is one of the most acclaimed genuine-table of Sardinia - wooed as much by locals as by in-the-know travellers
  • The rooms in the main mansion for a true out-of-time experience, or the more contemporary top floor rooms across the street for the views over the village.


  • The cooking classes given by Antica Dimora del Gruccione’s chef Roberto, where you will learn (some) of the secrets of traditional Sardinian cuisine.
  • The large, wild and off the tourist beaten track beaches of Sardinia’s west coast – just half an hour’s (scenic) drive away.


The albergo diffuso concept. A single hotel with rooms spread out across the historic fabric of the hamlet (all within the same street in the case of the Antica Dimora del Gruccione), offering its customers the privileged experience of living directly within a small town community.


Rooms: 12 rooms spread through the main mansion and two houses across the narrow street.
Bar & Restaurant: The restaurant itself is worth the trip. Chef Roberto cooks a feast of regional Montiferru products, adding a nifty presentation to his traditional Sardinian cuisine.
Pool: There is no swimming pool at the Antica Dimora del Gruccione.


Open year round.

The breakfast benefit from the same attention as the restaurant to completely local produce engendering zero food miles.
