The charm of Santa Igia is in farm life. The rythms in Santa Igia are scanned by the seasons, by the products of the kitchen garden, the harvest of the oats, the riping of the fruits, the passage of the migratory birds, the joyful welcoming of the owner’s dogs and cats, the noble elegance of the horses, a family passion.


Santa Igia Country House is located in Via San Girolamo Emiliani 21 – Elmas, 5 minutes from Cagliari and less than 10 minutes from the city center.

If you want to use the car navigation system you must look for Via Sernagiotto, Elmas. Via Girolamo Emiliani is the continuation of Via Sernagiotto, but generally is not found by satellite navigation systems. Once you arrivee in via Sernagiotto you just go straight following the indications.

As a first option Google maps suggests a country road which is a shortcut, but is not always easy to follow. We suggest you to follow the signs through the West industrial area (as in the google map shown here).

Un posto incantevole anche per chi viaggia con animali domestici
5 su 5 stellePer un’esposizione cinofila abbiamo soggiornato presso questo bellissimo b&b. Accoglienza da prim’ordine: proprietari gentilissimi e disponibilissimi, educati e soprattutto sorridenti, i miei cani sono stati ben accetti e spero di aver ricambiato con altrettanto rispetto. Ampio verde dove poterli far scorrazzare. Stanze pulitissime, ben riscaldate, con tutti i comforts. Panorama fantastico, in piena natura che affaccia sulla laguna cagliaritana. Situato 15/20 minuti dal centro cagliaritano e 5 minuti dall’aereoporto: molto pratico per gli automobilisti. Colazione abbondantissima e compresa nella tariffa. Qualità/prezzo ineguagliabile. Consigliato vivamente.


Sassari, Italy

Plain awesome

We wanted to spend our last night in Sardinia close to the airport, and finding this B&B has been an excellent surprise. The location is perfect and the B&B itself is just incredible. The room was large and wonderfully decorated, the little private terrace charming, and the dogs and horses families are juste adorable. The view is also a great plus. So don’t hesitate to stop there on your way in or out of this island, you won’t regret it.
