Ogliastra is one of the areas of Sardinia where you can feel the magic of this land, the power of nature and its deep silences. An area with a very low population density where it will seem to feel alone in the world, far from any stress of everyday life and city life.
Its landscape is truly unique, with a wonderful coastline, clear waters, and the typical rocks of this area, while, behind it, the hilly areas that rise abruptly, with small villages climbed on the slopes and the famous chain of "Tacchi" (Heels) of Ogliastra, mountains that rise straight into the town of Ulassai and take their name from their shape, and are a destination for hikes especially for lovers of climbing.
The town of Ulassai was also the birthplace of one of the most important artists on the island and not only: Maria Lai, to whom the Art Station is dedicated: the ancient art station became a museum area. In addition, scattered in the town, there are many works of the artist that make Ulassai an open-air museum.
In the nearby Jerzu, wine production is famous because in this territory are strong traditions related to drinking and eating.
There are many experiences to be had related to the sea, because this coast, which can be traveled south or north towards the Gulf of Orosei, knows how to give unique and untraveled views. By dinghy or sailboat, these are the best solutions.
