The owners and managers of the Holiday Residence Rifugio are the Swiss couple Matthias and Irene Winkler. They have been living in Orosei, Sardinia, since August 2001. They inherited the house from Matthias‘ parents and built and renovated multiple units in two major stages. Their wish for you is that you can truly enjoy your vacation and that their residence becomes a small „Rifugio“ (shelter) to you that feels like home.
Pictures and further information on the apartments are available on our webpage where you can find prices, and book your stay.
Our Residence is an ideal place for people who like to relax in beautiful surroundings near the sea and the mountains but who also appreciate being very close to a typical Mediterranean holiday resort. Orosei is a picturesque coastal village situated about an hour’s drive south of Olbia (port and airport). The Residence is about a mile from the beach on the beautiful Gulf of Orosei also known as Europe’s Caribbean. The sandy beach “Marina di Orosei” can be reached by car, bike or a twenty minute walk alongside the river “Cedrino”. Restaurants, cafés and shops are within a walking distance of one to five minutes.
One way to reach Olbia is by driving to Genoa or Livorno by car and from there taking the ferry. The most comfortable way is booking a cabin on an overnight ferry in order to be able to sleep on the ship and arrive at the port in Olbia relaxed and ready for vacation. Another way of reaching Olbia is by air. Flights often come in a combo package with convenient car rentals, which make your holidays all the more enjoyable. Any questions?

Surrounded by beautiful beaches, canyons and mountains The Gulf of Orosei with its natural resorts “Su Barone” and “Bidderosa” is known as one of the most interesting holiday areas in Sardinia.

The stunning beaches are among the most beautiful and cleanest in Europe (Caribbean feelings!). Other recreational possibilities are diving, canoeing, trekking, fishing, boat expeditions, archeological tours, horse riding, biking, climbing, quad tours, expeditions into the wild countryside of the island and wine tastings.
