I returned to Hotel Su Gologone on Tuesday in Oliena.... It definitely is my favourite place to relax here. The countryside around it is stunning and even when it's busy at the hotel the service is great. I was also in Orgosolo for the afternoon, a town infamous for it's bandits and kidnapping! Now it's famous for it's murals (definitely inspired by Picasso's Guernica) I have to laugh every time I see a road sign here because there are always bullet holes.... They are obviously used for target practice! Look at the door in the photo I'm posting it is full of bullet holes!!! Obviously Saturday nights are interesting there!!I was at one of 5 biggest houses in Orgosolo owned by the Corraines family, Sa Dommo e sos Corraines. It was built in 1907 with 4 floors and 15 rooms....they were definitely the bigwigs of the town. I was shown around by the daughter who runs the house as a museum. After she gives you a glass of wine and a homemade pastry/sweet... All for a fiver!
