Our favourite rooms

Each room has unique local art, but the aptly named Art Studio Suite was once the owner's atelier. Set in its own private rose garden with a courtyard and outdoor double bath, apart from other rooms, the Studio comes equipped with art supplies, an easel and canvas, should inspiration strike. Suite 86, inspired by the artist Francesco Ciusa, has a lovely terrace with views of the mountains.


Surrounded by grass and sunloungers, the unheated 25-metre pool is fed from a natural spring behind the hotel. Nearby, the seasonal gazebo bar offers snacks and games.

Worth getting out of bed for

With mountain vistas to inspire even the most elementary of artists, Su Gologone is a lovely place for escape and relaxation, and it’s tempting to fill an entire stay with art classes, yoga and afternoons by the pool.  

The grounds around the hotel are exceptional, including gardens and the local spring, which feeds the pool.

The hotel can also arrange for guests to visit local goat herders, and lunch on their cured meats and fresh cheeses.

Anonymous review

Every hotel featured is visited personally by members of our team, given the Smith seal of approval, and then anonymously reviewed. As soon as our reviewers have returned from this island hotel in Italy and unpacked their art supplies and wine, a full account of their mountain break will be with you. In the meantime, to whet your wanderlust, here's a quick peek inside Su Gologone in Sardinia…

If vacations are a blank canvas, Su Gologone in Sardinia has the tools to make each one a masterpiece. Whether guests seek relaxation, excitement, cultural immersion, art or food, the hotel is prepared. Set at the foot of the Supramonte Mountains inland from the coast, the hotel is a serene escape from bustling island ports. Mountain views set an idyllic backdrop for morning yoga or evening stargazes on the terrace. The same mountains await adventurers, with hiking trails, climbing rocks and scrambles for the intrepid.

The hotel itself is a tribute to the rich cultural history of Sardinia. An on-site art collective helps to preserve local traditions, and the rooms and public spaces of the hotel serve as galleries for the bright canvases, embroideries and wooden crafts that emerge from the workshop. Even the restaurant is a tribute to Sardinia. Franca, the owner’s mother, takes to the kitchen to prepare traditional dishes using produce from the family’s garden. One night a week in summer, Franca hosts an open-air banquet for the ultimate tribute to the best of Italy’s Mediterranean island hideaway.
