Sardinia with Giovanni Pilu, Alessandro Pavoni and Sue Jenkins 2019


Our adventure will start from Olbia Airport. On arrival day you will have time to settle in and enjoy an aperitivo before the welcome dinner prepared by Giovanni and Alessandro.  We will stay at Villa Marzia, a stunning, modern 600 sqm villa in a secluded position and set in the private estate of Capo Coda Cavallo. The villa, located in a small bay is situated just 50m from our private, beautiful sandy beach.

Visit a Festival
We will visit the local festival of Sant’ Elias including a traditional shared feast, local cheeses and wines, typical sweets and lots more.  In the afternoon we will return to the Villa for a Sardinian siesta, swim at the private beach followed by a seafood dinner prepared by Giovanni and Alessandro.


Tavolara Island with Giovanni Pilu, Alessandro Pavoni and Sue Jenkins 2019

Boat Trip and a Master Class
We will take a boat trip to the Island of Tavolara where we will swim in ‘Le Piscine’ and lunch on the island restaurant.  Our dinner back at the villa will involve a masterclass with Giovanni and Alessandro.

The following day we will take a trip to Oliena in the heart of Sardinia.  Here we will see how cheese is made by shepherds, also the traditional bread of Sardinia – Pane Carasau and the now world famous filindeu pasta.  This will be followed by a long, leisurely lunch at the stunning Su Gologone Restaurant before returning to our villa for a light dinner.

There will be time to relax in the villa, by the beach or maybe a spot of golf at one of the nearby spectacular courses along the coast.  Giovanni and Alessandro will hold a pasta masterclass using locally sourced ingredients – learn to make the Sardinian specialties of malloreddus and culurzones.
