Overview

L'Essenza is a one-of-a-kind eco-boutique hotel experience in the north of Sardinia, Italy. Getting close to nature has never been more pleasurable than a stay in one of the 4 fully-furnished pinettos, a typical circular hut that was used by ancient Sardinian shepherds. L'Essenza is a refuge from the constant juggling of every day life, the pollution and running around after everyone and every thing. Stop! Enough! Your body, mind and soul needs a break from the chaos and this Chic Retreat is the perfect antidote. Marina Denti is an agricultural and medicinal herb expert and a landscape gardener and co-owner Valeria Gentile is a journalist and event manager and between them they have created a simple boutique hotel oasis where you can re-connect, re-balance and enjoy the simple pleasures in life.

Activities

Meditation, Yoga, trekking, climbing, Naturopathic consulting, workshops, reading in fragrant corners of the land are just some of the re-balancing activities during your stay at L'Essenza, from the Latin essentia meaning nature, essential oil, the permanent nature in anything. The nearest town to the sea is Posada (5/6 km) with white sandy beaches; they won an award for the best Italian beach in 2013. Rocky beaches are between Posada and La Caletta, Santa Lucia and Capo Comino. Beauty treatments and massages can be arranged during your stay at L'Essenza with a little bit of notice.

Dining

Vegan breakfasts, herbal teas and Sardinian wines and breads are some of the natural local delicacies to be enjoyed during your stay. The nearest village is Torpe' (3 km), Borgo Antico di Posada (4 km), La Caletta, a seaside resort together with Il Borgo di Mare Santa Lucia and the city of Siniscola which have a good selection of restaurants to choose from.
