A little over 20 miles from Sardinia’s eastern coast, Su Lithu delights with a spacious pool and an intimate restaurant enjoying views across the village of Bitti to the hills beyond. Your hosts Dario and Susana offer expertly prepared Sardinian dishes giving you a real taste of this beautiful island’s gastronomic traditions.
Rooms at Su Lithu are impressively stylish while remaining comfortable and inviting, many enjoying balcony views of this verdant region. Each has its own character, accentuated by the carefully chosen antique furnishings and rustic wooden-beamed ceilings. Every room comes equipped with a minibar, air-conditioning, satellite TV and Wi-Fi, and guests enjoy personal, friendly service.
The hotel’s elevated position makes the views from its high-quality restaurant and bar irresistible to admire, with historic Bitti surrounded by hills and trees. An important centre in the region, the village is full of enchanting narrow lanes and lies around 10km from the notable archeological site of Su Romanzesu, dating back to the 16th century BC and well known for its amphitheatre. The village itself is home to a 19th-century church, San Giorgio Martire, on Piazza Giorgio Asproni, a pleasant spot to stop and soak up everyday life in the region of Nuoro.
Su Lithu’s traditional Sardinian cuisine is not to be missed. Among the local specialities on offer, try sa cordedda - braised lamb with tomatoes and herbs – or the tempting sas casattinas – oven-baked sour cheese tarts with parsley. Amazing wild herbs soups, smoked meats and traditional desserts made with honey and almonds will leave you in no doubt that Su Lithu knows real Sicilian cooking inside out and, even better, you can enjoy it on the romantic terrace overlooking charming Bitti.
While the hotel’s enticing outdoor pool and sun terrace may be hard to leave, be sure to take some time to explore the attractions of this multi-faceted region. Within a short walk you’ll find Bitti’s farming museum detailing the agricultural history of the local community, while the natural beauty of the Crastazza parkland is just a short drive away – its hiking trails and abundant wildlife make it perfect for lovers of the great outdoors. Further west, Nule is home to another archeological must-see in the form of its iconic Nuraghe, while those who seek nothing more than a blissful beach can unwind in Berchida, Orosei, Cala Gonone or Cartoe – all less than 1 hour’s drive from enticing Su Lithu.
