The charm and the magic .....
of an uncontaminated territory with no time relationship due to its
economic past which was based on the mining activities till the last
mid century. Ingurtosu, Montevecchio and Buggerru
were the most important locations providing nearly 10% of the lead
and zinc worldwide production.
The villages ruins, the abandoned mines buildings and the galleries
where even today you might hear the miners' footsteps who once worked
there, are now considered real archaeological mining monuments inserted
in a magic and silent ecosystem which offers the most fascinating
landscapes of the Mediterranean sea, creating a unique atmosphere.
These areas are now considered as real monuments, forming part of
Geomineral Historic and Environment Park of Sardinia, this park had
been acknowledged by the UNESCO in 1997 as the first park in the world
network of Geos/Geoparks.
This is also the Sardinian deer's homeland, which lived here for
centuries and now reigns on these mountains once again, after risking
It isn't unusual, early in the morning, observe deers going by the sea.
Costa Verde (the Green Coast) represents a unique inheritance in
Sardinia, as a matter of fact, it has been continuously awarded with the
Lega Ambiente 5 sails.
A holiday .....
In Costa Verde (the Green Coast) a holiday can occur by chance, as
when you just say I have never been there!
but when you are there you would be involved in an original, no time
and even no space, new world. And you may not want to leave that world
anymore, a world characterized by dunes, real deserts of sand which
sheer towards the sea, creating unique, silent and huge beaches,
sandstone walls, fascinating bays, which make you feel fulfilled just
by watching them.
There are neither too many hotels, resorts or discos nor animators or
beach furniture but only silence, nature, or maybe a few rusty
trolleys, together with the ruins of abandoned mineral factories,
giving the impression of a ghost village in a western movie.
A holiday in Sardinia, in the Costa Verde and the whole
South West coast of Sardinia, you would find a place where you will
be able to do long walks surrounded by a total silence, only interrupted by
the wind and by the breaking waves, visited by tourists which are mainly
looking for peace and their reunion to nature.
You will find a welcome with small accommodation for rent summer houses,
bed & breakfast and farm holidays, all with the characteristic of immersing yourself
in the typical Sardinian life even more typical in this corner of Sardinia.
It is a paradise which must be explored in detail because it could give
great emotions and moments of deep attraction.
