Ilbono, snug and cozy apartment located on the outskirts of the village.


Suitable for four persons and a baby. Relatively large living kitchen with fireplace, two bedrooms and bathroom. Terrace and garden. Ilbono is just 15 minutes driving distance from the beaches of Orri, Il Golfetto and La Capannina. The village of Ilbono, located on a hill halfway between Lanusei and Tortolì, enjoys a privileged position as an important transit point. Sites of archaeological interest and lovely landscapes are abundant in the territory. 

Ilbono is on a hill between the comunes of Lanusei and Tortolì, and is therefore a place many people pass through. Ilbono's countryside contains many places of interest for their countryside and archaeology, of which the most important is Scerì, where you can see the area's most important nuragic settlement from the second century BC. Other important archaeological sites are: Sartassu, Tedili, Pira Inseri and Elurci. 

There are currently 20 nuraghi in the area. Among the places to see wildlife, there's Tarì, which is easy to get to and from which you get nice views.Ilbono has an interesting old town centre, around the very old Piazza di Funtana de Idda, where to this day all the streets converge, including some very narrow and cobbled streets, while others are wider, to allow ox-drawn carts to pass. 

Among the important town festivals don't miss the festa della Madonna delle Grazie, during which the wooden statue of the Virgin from the sixteenth century AD is paraded through the streets of the town on an ox-drawn cart, followed by the town's young people dressed in traditional costume. The country churches of San Cristoforo, San Pietro and San Rocco bear witness to the past devoutness of the peasant community. Ilbono is famous for its handicrafts, for the embroidery and lace woven with su vrevolitè, an old-fashioned Sard instrument. Among the gastronomic specialities we find amaretti biscuits and olive oil from local presses.

Among them, Sceri, the largest and most important Nuragic complex of the area, dating back to the 2nd millennium B.C., surrounded by dense Mediterranean vegetation that adds a touch of magic to the place. Archaeological Area of Sceri. Proprietor: municipality of Ilbono. 
Impressive granite outcrops shaped by nature are the home of prehistoric settlements that were intelligently adapted to a terrain made up of fissures. 

The Archaeological Area of Scerì attests to intense human habitation here from the Middle Neolithic Period (V Millenniu BC) up to the Late Bronze Age (Twelfth century BC). A Neolithioc domus de janas necropolis is laid out on terrain with large, isolated masses of rock, while a nuraghic village with stone dwellings lies along the slopes that leads to the majestic tower of Sceri nuraghe: from here one has a panoramic view of the Ogliastra territory that descends from the mountains towards the sea. 

These rocky ravines have yielded much Neolithic terra cotta and stone material connected to funerary functions contemporaneous with the creation of the Domus de Janas. Following the first digs, carried out in 1994, and a later one in the summer of 2003, scientific research on the site was resumed in 2007 with the aim of clarifying basic problems such as chronological-cultural dimension of the pre-nuraghic period and the architectural, social and economic aspects of nuraghic cultural. 

Ogliastra, with the beauty of its coastline and mountainous interior, is Sardinia's most recently-discovered tourist destination. This corner of the island, bounded by the mountains and the sea, offers an unlimited number of unique attractions for visitors. A paradise of remarkable beauty situated on the east coast of Sardinia: here Nature offers the best of itself. The name Ogliastra is said to come from the Olivastri, olive trees, found all over this area, though others say it's derived from the Agugliastra (or Pedra Longa), the limestone monolith on the coastline of Baunei.

Ogliastra's coastline contains some of the most beautiful and unspoilt beaches of Sardinia: oases of sand wedged between the sea and the surrounding cliffs. Ogliastra is actually one of the Mediterranean's most charming marine landscapes. Starting from the north, we come to sandy bays (cale) reachable only by boat or on foot, such as the famous Cala Luna, Cala Sisine, Cala Mariolu and Cala Goloritzé; further south we find interesting beaches such as those at Tancau, Orrì, Cea, the Marinas di Barisardo and Cardedu, Coccorrocci and the Golfo di Sarrala.

The other magical side to Ogliastra is the Nature, which is still unspoilt and which gradually changes as you climb over the hills to arrive at the mountains of the Gennargentu, whose varied landscapes and rare beauty are very satisfying to gaze upon. A land which is best appreciated by the attentive and curious observer, rather than the normal tourist. In terms of history and archaeology.


The whole area of Ogliastra includes fine white sand beaches, crystal-clear waters, cliffs which fall sheer to the sea, age-old woods and dry desert plains. Sailing along the wonderful coast it possible to admire some of the most beautiful bays of the Mediterranean: Cala Gonone, Cala Luna, Cala Goloritzè are nowadays very well-know destinations for tourism. 

As a matter of fact the whole Orosei gulf has been appointed by the EU as SIC (Site of Communitarian Importance), awards given to sites characterised by the presence of important species of flora and fauna. One of the most famous and popular site is the Grotta del Bue Marino (Sea cow's cave), once shelter for the seals, today in danger of extinction.

Faunistic area of the sardinian deer at "Sa Portiscra" The faunistic area, 750 m above sea level, is situated amid “Su Campu de Bidiculai, “Punta Or Mufrones” and “Punta su Crabargiu” at “Sa Portiscra” in the Urzulei mountains. The natural aspects of the territory are well-preserved, there are century-old forests of evergreen oaks, majestic junipers, rare wild orchids, peonies, various endemisms; from these slopes the Sardinian goshawk and the majestic golden eagle soar into the sky. Moufflons, wild-boars, wild-cats, martens and foxes live happily in this area.
