The story of Monte Istulargiu

The story of Monte Istulargiu.

The Cugusi family comes from one of the oldest parts of the Barbagia,and have always been part of the agricultural-pastoral tradition.

In this way, Fonni, as their small town at the foot of the Gennargentu is known, can claim to have exported its sheep farming traditions to Valledoria, a small tourist centre along the North Sardinia coast.

As a result, 20 years ago saw the creation of this farm which is dedicated to agricultural production and breeding livestock.
In  2000, with the intention of expanding the farm, the owners Mario and Costanza decided to restore some of the unused  old buildings that had fallen into disrepair, and to bring to a wider audience the quality of their products. Thus they created the Agriturismo  “MONTE ISTULARGIU”,  which takes its name from its position on top of a hill, together with the Sardinian word “S’ISTULA” which refers to the stubble left over in the fields for the animals to graze on.

Thanks to the beauty of the surrounding countryside, the quality of Costanza’s cooking and Mario’s courtesy and hospitality, the Holiday Farm and its accommodation came to life.
In addition to working on the farm during this period, Mario and Costanza  also dedicated themselves to their family, and they have four children: Pasquale, Antonella, Marco and Pierluigi, who have all worked and contributed to the growth and development  of  "Monte Istulargiu".
All this courage, hard work and sacrifice over the years means that today they have created a complete working holiday farm and business, which together with its own authentic products, offers a range of services to its guests, a large  reception and dining room, a veranda with spectacular sea view, ensuite bedrooms, and apartments.
However, the essential development of the agricultural and pastoral side of the business remains of fundamental importance for the family,  in order to guarantee authentic products of genuine quality, and to offer customers on holiday in Sardegna the pleasure of admiring and discovering the details and interesting elements of a typical Sardinian sheep farming business.
