For the last two nights of our holiday in Sardinia this August, we decided to move inland to enjoy some of the mountain scenery that Sardinia has to offer. You only have to drive half an hour away from the coast to be in the mountains in Sardinia and in less than an hour we were at Oliena, close to the town of Nuoro.

This is the perfect place for treking and mountain walking especially if you are interested in the natural habitat of the National Park that surrounds the hotel.
