, Loc. Lonne, Siniscola.
Nioleo is a cluster of self-catering apartments that has evolved from an old sheep farm. It is set amongst fields and hills a short distance from Siniscola and just a few minutes drive from some of the best beaches on the east coast of Sardinia. The views from the terrace are dominated by the limestone formations of Montalbo and the green Nioleo valley. In the distance can be seen the sea and La Caletta beach.
At the heart of Nioleo is the swimming pool with its surrounding sun terrace with loungers and parasols. Just below that is the garden which is also ideal for relaxing and reading. Behind the swimming pool, the ample bar has plenty of seating area, both inside and out under the shady verandah. Snacks are available as well as drinks, and you can also get packed lunches or arrange a grocery delivery.
The creation of Nioleo from the old agricultural buildings has preserved as much as possible of the original structures and materials as possible. The seven apartments are arranged around a central courtyard, with each one named after an element of the typical Mediterranean maquis that covers the hills. These are then the inspiration for the decoration of the apartment. Each of the apartments has a seating and dining area, a bathroom with shower or bath and a kitchen with an oven, fridge and dishwasher.
The area is as ideal for an active holiday as it is for a relaxing one. There are plenty of walking trails that you can start right from Nioleo, or you could take a mountain bike. There’s horse-riding nearby and down on the coast you will find every kind of water sport available.
