In southwestern Sardinia, in a lush Mediterranean garden that leads to a sandy beach, lies the recently renovated Sant'Efis hotel, named after the island's most important saint. On 1 May, he is celebrated with one of Europe's longest processions, a colourful parade with horses, traccas decorated with flowers and precious traditional costumes. From the beach, you can see the archaeological site of Nora, said to be the first city on the island, founded by Phoenicians.
Caractère customers receive a welcome drink on arrival.
The hotel is open from mid-April to the end of October.
Check-in is possible from 2 pm. Check-out can be done until 10 am.
From 430 euros.
The hotel's tropical-Mediterranean garden is full of unusual and aromatic plants and flowers that stand out because of their fabulous colours. On the fine white-sand beach, you can take a blissful sunset stroll along the crystal-clear waters.
All rooms are bright and have a contemporary design with a Sardinian touch. All rooms have a balcony or terrace with a table and chairs. In the bathroom you will find a hairdryer, a make-up mirror, bathrobes and slippers.
The basic rooms are rather small. We prefer the 'Superior' or 'Junior suite' as they are more spacious.
There are two outdoor swimming pools that are open all season long with a hydromassage area. There is also a sandy beach with free sun loungers, parasols and beach towels.
At the reception, you can hire bikes and get information about renting scooters and boats. Excursions are available by sail or motor boat with a supplement. You can visit the capital Cagliari and the archaeological site of Nora, the remains of a Roman metropolis with a spectacular location.
You'll enjoy tasty seafood dishes while admiring stunning sea views.
In the morning, you will enjoy a varied breakfast buffet. The Beach Bar serves ice creams, snacks and cocktails throughout the day. The Don Carlo Restaurant, located by the beach, serves local and Italian cuisine based on fresh ingredients and with a strong emphasis on seafood. In good weather, mealtimes can be taken on the terrace overlooking the sea.
Sant'Efis is located in the south-west of Sardinia. It is a quiet location, in a beautiful garden with direct access to the sandy beach and with beautiful views of the bay of Nora and the Coltelazzo tower. Pula is 2.5 km away, the archaeological site of Nora is 1.5 km away and Cagliari is 39 km away.
The airport of Cagliari is 40 kilometres away.
There is a transfer available between Cagliari airport and the hotel, which costs between 85 to 120 euros per journey, depending on the time of day and the number of people. You pay this amount on-site.
You can park your car for free in the private car park.
