Su Gologone Experience Hotel

Sardinian art and hospitality

Enjoy an enchanting and unforgettable stay

In the captivating Barbagia region of Sardinia, a rugged yet enchanting landscape unfolds, just a stone’s throw from the sea. Amidst junipers and intricate embroidery, terracotta and inlaid craftsmanship, Su Gologone embodies the essence of Sardinian artistry and a rich culinary heritage. Originating as a restaurant in 1967, the visionary founder, Giuseppe “Peppeddu” Palimodde, sought to showcase traditional cuisine in a region known for its challenges. With the culinary prowess of his wife Pasqua, the restaurant in Oliena quickly became a revered destination, attracting visitors from near and far eager to savour its delectable offerings.

Building on this success, the concept expanded to offer accommodations. What started as eight rooms in 1975 has evolved into a collection of 71, each transcending the label of “rooms” to become immersive journeys into Sardinian art, culture, and hospitality. From the enchanting Bar Tablao, a stage for unforgettable aperitifs, to the Terrace of Dreams and Wishes, where stars paint the sky, and the captivating Botteghe d’Arte Su Gologone Style, every space is a testament to boundless creativity.

Visit a nearby Nuragic village, explore the Tiscali sinkhole, stroll through the beautiful Lanaitho forests and enjoy gorgeous sunsets. Then revitalise your body and mind at the hotel’s intimate spa.

Lake Como

Grand Hotel Tremezzo
Lake Como is all about style and elegance, and the iconic Grand Hotel Tremezzo with its impressive art nouveau façade, fits the brief perfectly. Sat on the western shores of the lake, the hotel looks out across the water to the pretty town of Bellagio and the dramatic Grigne mountains. Not to be outshone by its famous neighbour, Villa Carlotta, the hotel sits within beautifully landscaped gardens filled with rare and ancient magnolias, palm trees and flowers that explode in clouds of red, purple, pink and blue. Rooms come with large windows that look out over lake or gardens, and the views from the rooftop suites are hard to beat. It’s not just the scenery that’ll catch your eye, however, and there’s plenty to admire inside as well. The lounge is filled with brightly coloured furniture and features ornate silk hangings on the wall, while the billiards room is home to an original table from the 1800s. Guests can dine on seasonal Mediterranean cuisine in the restaurant where in the warmer months, food is served on the terrace. The trattoria and wine bar is perfect for more casual dining, offering the relaxed atmosphere of an ancient wine cellar with a touch of modern elegance. Relaxing here is easy; the hotel has a secluded outdoor pool in the gardens and its own man-made beach, located just in front of the water-on-water floating pool on the lake. The indoor infinity pool and spa look out over the water and offer luxurious Santa Maria Novella products and treatments. The hotel also has its own water limos for when you want to explore and discover the lake.
