Agriturismo La Cerra

Agriturismo La Cerra offers four comfortable double rooms + bathroom with an additional bed

The STAZZO ” La Cerra ” was purchased in 1981 by my family. I was immediately captivated by this typical Gallurese farm, as well as its aim for self-sufficiency. I have to say that the early years were quite difficult , if we succeeded it was thankfully due to the local farming methods taught to us by our neighbors who have shown us the secrets of this special land so different from Italy .

 

The “stazzo” was abandoned for several years, with no water or electricity, the house without a roof and most of the fields overgrown with weeds. We worked very hard for the first 20 years restoring the house, reclaiming the fields and the vegetable garden,searching for an underground spring, building the barn and finally we were able to start the typical farm in this area with free range cattle. We have always believed in organic farming .

 

In 2001, with funding from the European Community for Rural Development we were able to build the holiday farmhouse, a 5 bedrooms building in respect of the local style. In 2009 we added a solar panel system 6.2 KW / h, which gives us self-sufficiency in electricity.

 

Our restoration and improvement of the natural environment and the rural way of life is very popular with guests, who have the opportunity of spending a few days in complete relaxation surrounded by the silence of nature, but also nourished by a healthy traditional cuisine.

 

The La Cerra Farmhouse

 

The traditional “stazzo ” La Cerra is a typical Gallurese farmhouse spread over 75 acres of pasture, woods and granite rocks shaped by wind and water, surrounded by Mediterranean shrubs; a true paradise for lovers of nature. It is 13 km away from Tempio, the main town of Gallura region in north-east Sardinia.

 

The Pesenti family lives at La Cerra and tend to a herd of wild cattle, a small herd of goats and other farm animals, an organic vegetable garden and a fruit orchard. For the last ten years, the family have hosted visitors from all over the world.

 

Located in the center of a triangle of land that forms the north-east tip of Sardinia, you could quickly reach a wide variety of interesting places for tourist. Our cool plain, situated opposite Mount Limbara (1300 m), is almost equidistant from the main coastal resorts reachable with a network of local roads seldomly used even in high season.

 

Camping

 

From this year at “La Cerra” you can camp onsite in tent or camper vans.

 

By the cork oak forest in a designated area close to the main house we have set up 6 pitches with electricity supplies, 3 with private bayhrooms and a camping house with shared facilities and covered veranda.

 

In the creation of the campsite and pathways, careful attention has been paid covering the natural environment, insuring that no trees were cut down or damaged. All the hot water is provided by solar pannel.

 

Cooking

 

A short walk from the apartments and you can try out the traditional cuisine of Gallura. All the dishes, cooked expertly with simplicity, made with the best quality of locally sourced products, form part of a tasty and healthy diet.
From the dining room you can enjoy a wonderful view of the plains. Inside there is a large fireplace for roasting and a typical wood burning oven to complete the hearty and sociable atmosphere.

 

The menu

 

Our menu changes with the seasons,you will always find the typical starters of cured meats and pickles made traditionally in the winter. Our first courses, all made with fresh dough: Chiusoni ( Sardinian dumplings ), Fiuritti, Puliljioni (ravioli), Zuppa Gallurese, Pan’a fitti. The meat comes from our live stock. The garden provides organic vegetables for our side dishes and for the vegetarian menu.

 

Our products

 

As in any Stazzo Gallurese , at La Cerra the main live stock is the free range cattle. The animals graze freely during the whole year in enclosures called ” Tanche ” surrounded by dry stone walls that characterize our landscape.

 

The pastures are organically grown without the use of synthetic fertilizers and pesticides or chemicals. Veterinary care are rare as well bred cattle have a high resistance to disease. Some of the cattle supplies the meat used in the holiday farm house kitchen. A few pigs are used for making sausages a few goats for milk, hens, chickens and a vegetable garden grown with the Permaculture method . A dozen hives ensure the provision of high-quality honey from the Macchia Mediterranea (low Mediterranean shrub land) and the special bitter honey from the strawberry trees.

 

The kitchen pantry is additionally stocked with a harvest of the fruits and berries from the surrounding forest as well as mushrooms, wild asparagus and myrtle berries used in the preparation of our famous “Mirto” liqueur that we offer as a digestive at the end of the meal.

 

The rooms

 

All the accommodation are built to duplicate the ancient Stazzo houses.

 

There are four comfortable double rooms + bathroom with an additional bed if needed and one annex with two double bedrooms and a bathroom (suitable for families ). Guests can use the large and bright living room which has a fireplace, there is also a large veranda, a library, games, music and a small exhibition on the extraction of cork.

 

Here guests can enjoy breakfast, prepared with top quality products and our own products as well as milk, tea and coffee, goat’s milk yogurt, jam, honey, apple pie with yogurt or chocolate , cottage cheese and fruit from our orchard.
