Comfortable apartments & pool, in charming rural setting, and with really great restaurant. Michael loves Il Frutteto’s lovely pool and excellent agritourist restaurant, within staggering distance!

On a working farm, guests will enjoy Il Frutteto’s rural location and the excellent agritourist restaurant, close by. Only 15 minutes from the interesting old walled town of Alghero, and a few kilometres from some very nice beaches and the Capo Caccia nature reserve, ll Frutteto apartments are next to the farm, with views of the surrounding countryside.

Domenico Manca and his son, Pasquale, the owners of Casale Del Monte and Il Frutteto, are farmers on a large scale. They supplement their own 72 hectares with pockets of land farmed by others, to become one of Sardinia’s most important producers of excellent quality olive oil, producing and exporting millions of litres every year, and winning many national and international awards. But, being very Sardinian, they care about food and traditions, and they also farm for other traditional products. They have 300 pigs, wild boar, donkeys, goats, chickens, prickly pears and other fruit and vegetables.

In true agriturismo (agritourist) style, much of what you eat in the farm’s excellent restaurant-cum-trattoria-cum-pizzeria is literally farm to table. Flavours explode your tastebuds; traditional and classic Sardinian dishes have a light modern twist; farmhouse kitchen recipes are as robust and delicious as ever. You may well aim to self-cater, but this is too tempting, we warn you! Fantastic food, right on your doorstep – don’t even try to resist!

If you feel particularly lazy, take advantage of the “take-away service ” – pizzas, ready-made restaurant dishes, the Manca’s fantastic array of typical products – you will never want to move from this place.

Il Frutteto apartments are quite simple, but comfortable, and they have a lovely, shared swimming pool, which has the pleasing backdrop of well-kept fields. There are also a number of lemon, fig and other fruit trees, as well as olive trees, dotted around by the pool, and in the grounds. Guests are welcome to pick the fruit and vegetables, from the farm, to use for their own meals, in their apartments!

Whether you love farms or simply being immersed in the beauty of nature, Il Frutteto is the spot for you. Wander along paths through wheat fields, a vineyard, the organic vegetable garden, the aromatic herb corner and the prickly pear plantation. Visit the farm animals. Great for children and adults, the farm animals are an irresistible attraction for the whole family. Get up close and personal with sows and pigs with their little piglets, semi-wild boar, the flock of sheep and lambs, goats, kids and farmyard hens. Don’t forget to visit Ugo, Gigliola, Marta and Agostina, the farm’s four pet donkeys. Spot nature’s wildlife – tortoises and leverets, who like to hide away in concealed corners of fields, as far from prying eyes as they can get.

Comfortable apartments in a lovely rustic setting, with a great trattoria within staggering distance – what more could you want!

“Being so near the restaurant was such a treat. I didn’t cook at all. How could I possibly compete with such fantastic food?” Libby & Gordon, Winchester

“This was just spot-on for our family. The kids loved the animals and the pool and it was great to have the restaurant close by and some of the best beaches we’ve ever seen” John & Julie & family, Hastings
