Cortis Antigas is located in the southern center of the island, in Gesturi at the feet of the Giara of Gesturi, home to the last remaining wild horses of Europe, five minutes away from the archeological complex Su Nuraxi of Barumini, patrimony of the UNESCO.
In this 19th century manor home delicately restructured, it is possible to admire the ingenious building techniques of ancient local traditions: stone walls, mud and straw bricks (ladiri), roofs made of wooden beams and reed, original flooring of the period. Remodeling a home such as this one and converting it into a B & B was the idea of a young archaeologist who had the vision of making his guests experience the real spirit of Sardinia, far away from the crowds and the beaches. Cortis Antigas is a perfect destination for those who are looking for a kind of stay that’s not standard, one that is an experience to remember. The warm and simple comforts will make a unique stay for who wants to experience the customs and way of living of our island. The structure is inserted into the heart of the historic center, among charming streets, beautiful homes, more than a dozen churches in a setting that is suggestive while at the same time relaxing. One can feel as though they are living in a town of the Sardinian interior where time has stopped.
