An idyllic countryside stay in Sardinia, close to a serenely beautiful protected marine area, including flights, car hire and half board

Just three miles from the beach, among the beautiful and relatively untouched countryside of the Sinis Peninsula – a protected marine area on the western coast of the island of Sardinia – sits the charming traditional Is Benas Country Lodge.

Decorated in an elegant English country cottage style, this small and tranquil lodge has 18 bedrooms and feels like a real home-from-home. It features Mediterranean gardens, a swimming pool, sunbathing terrace and sheltered outdoor dining area. Alongside offering pasta-making classes, the restaurant serves scrumptious traditional Sardinian and Italian cuisine – think plenty of fresh fish, meat and colourful vegetables – and when you're ready to burn off your lunch, an 18-hole putting green and a bike rental service are at your disposal.

With a stunning countryside setting, you can really get away from it all here. Take a stroll on the sugar-white sands of the Sinis Peninsula, and watch the flocks of migratory birds, particularly pink flamingo's. For those looking to perfect their tan, there are several stunning beaches with soft sands and clear turquoise waters a short drive away. Is Benas Country Lodge deservedly won itself a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.

Good to know

Please note that reservations are required for cookery classes.

Half-board guests can enjoy a delicious five-course tasting menu over dinner each evening, which reflect the season and alternates nightly between fish and meat. Once a week, this is replaced with either a Sardinian themed night, or a fisherman's themed night.


All guestrooms are comfortable and homely, with traditional furnishings, neutral tones and charming decor. Located on the first floor, Classic rooms boast lovely views of the surrounding countryside. Garden rooms are located on the ground floor, featuring a furnished patio and private garden, while Junior suites also have the added bonus of a small living room and whirlpool bathtub.

Room amenities:

Dining at Is Benas is a fresh and traditional affair. Be sure not to miss the fresh-from-the-sea and utterly delicious Mediterranean fish dishes. Other specialities incorporate traditional Sardinian and Italian cuisine, so you can look forward to feasting on cheese, homemade pasta, vegetables, locally sourced meat, decadent desserts and local wines. On a balmy evening, you can also dine outside on the terrace.

You'll get to enjoy a five-course set tasting menu, which varies from season to season, day to day, reflecting a contemporary interpretation of traditional Sardinian specialities. Once a week, there's also a themed dinner which steals the show. Please note that individual dishes can be replaced by options from the a la carte menu for an extra charge.


As luck would have it, the hotel has a peaceful setting in the countryside, at the top of a protected marine area on the Sinis Peninsula. You're surrounded by beautiful scenery – perfect for walking and exploring the hills, greenery and untouched rocky coastline.

The beaches of the lagoons of Is Benas and Sale e Porcus are nearby, and the white sandy beach of Putzu Idu is easily accessible by car. There are many towns and villages nearby, but if you're looking for the history and buzz of a city then the nearest is Oristano, around 20 kilometres away.

Organised walks into the surrounding countryside can also be arranged in conjunction with the local tourist association, and include bird-watching and trekking, with horse riding available nearby. The Roman remains at Tharros and the spa town of Fordongianus are within an easy drive and make for a fascinating day trip. You'll also find numerous Nuragic-era archaelogical sites nearby.
