Bisos Ospitalità Diffusa: The realized eco dream in the heart of Sardinia

Bisos in Sardinian means a dream, so it is not surprising that Bisos Ospitalità Diffusa Eco-sostenibile is not just a place, but a dream that came true. A cosy family nest, located in the heart of Paulilatino, offers an unforgettable holiday in the best traditions of Sardinia.

The majestic building from the second half of the 19th century, located in a small town, fully conveys the flavour of the city. Throughout its history, the hotel was functioning as a bazaar and even as a drinks factory, but one thing remains unchangeable – the house has been run only by women. Now, the mistress and soul of the house is Chiara, who will be proud to tell you the rich, centuries-old history of the estate.

Recently, this boutique hotel has been renovated by the owner – bio architect Francesco, following the principles of green building. That helps Bisos Ospitalità Diffusa to stay in harmony with the resplendent natural environment and also does not make any harm to it. All food, served at the hotel, is made exclusively from local products, by the skilful hands of Sicilian women.

We recently traveled Sardinia and staying with Bisos was a highlight of our trip. In Sardo, bisos means dream. And this hotel really is a dream!Sustainability is important to the owners and the hotel is categorized as a NZEH (Nearby Zero Energy House), which we loved! When they restored this historic building, they used only natural and ecological materials. And there’s so much more to their sustainable approach!They also serve delicious meals made with local ingredients. And they even have a little shop with local food and art! Everything is decorated with so much attention to detail. You have to stay here!And most importantly: everyone was so nice and helpful!

What a wonderful place, I can't even describe how perfect and beautiful this historic palazzo is. The building and the rooms are of breathtaking beauty, renovated in a very tasteful manner, combining the historic substance with modern elements but without breaking the historic parts. All done in an ecosustainable way, truly a masterpiece. Also the products used for the breakfast are of very good quality and self-made or of local production.The owners are very friendly and created a dream for their guests.We enjoyed our stay very much and I can only recommend this!!!Thank you so much for everything and for letting us enjoy your place as a huge highlight to end our holidays in Sardegna 🫶

We had a perfect stay at Bisos. This place was one of my favourite hotel stays. The building is lovely and the decorations and attention to details really stands out. Our room was very comfortable. We were some of the only people in the hotel and we had dinner there. Carmen was amazing. She really spoiled us with the wonderful meal. Breakfast was also great. The little town is worth a visit. There isn't much to do at all but the town is set up like a maze and it is fascinating to just walk around. We will be back to Bisos if we are ever in Sardinia again!

So thoughtfully designed: modern and warm, with an equally thoughtful and kind staff. Plus dinner and breakfast were delicious.

Among the different places we stayed at during our one-week trip around Sardinia, Bisos was by far the best.Great attention to detail, cleanliness and very relaxing atmosphere.The rooms are great and the breakfast is abundant and very tasty.The town is quiet but has several bars and restaurants, and is close to a number of fantastic beaches and nuragic monuments.Best moment, a private dinner cooked by a local chef (Carmen).We definitely recommend this place.

A very nice little hotel in a historic building. Very tastefully and stylishly furnished. Hotel is located in the center of the village. You can only park on the street, but that's not a problem. Unfortunately, the kitchen for dinner was closed on this Sunday because the cook's daughter was celebrating her first communion. The breakfast was very authentic, everything fresh and homemade. We would come again!

In the middle of Sardinia there is a little place that I happily call my corner of paradise. You will tell me that there are many that we could call paradise, but I swear that this one is unique. Usually paradise for many of us who live here in Sardinia is made up of the sea, mountains, breathtaking views or unspoilt nature. Few are the places created today by men that can claim to be fascinating. Too often we rely on the treasures that nature has bestowed upon us, but those who are deeply in love with their land take an extra step to preserve its culture, recent history, architectural features, and above all its art. Bisos, in Paulilatino, is one such place. A diffuse hotel, the only one in Sardinia that is entirely eco-sustainable, renovated only with zero-kilometre materials, this small structure represents the transition between ancient Sardinia, the still mysterious Sardinia of nuraghi and sacred wells, and the Sardinia of our grandparents, the recent history of us all. Here, the more recent Sardinia is preserved, in its beauty but also in its welcome, which travellers like me consider to be a fundamental part of hospitality. I am happy at the thought of having spent a night in a place that was, and still will be for our children, a historic place in Sardinia.

Bisos is such a beautiful place, it’s in a very special building with special people that run it. The experience is one of the best that I have had staying anywhere on holidays. We booked this place last minute, having booked our main stay in Alghero, as this is where we were based for our weeks holidays. We decided to book somewhere for one night to explore central Sardinia and the south western coast. This turned out to be one of the highlights of our trip staying in Bisos. Their ethos of eco tourism is one to be admired, every detail in the building is so well thought out. Each room has its own special character. It was such a memorable and beautiful experience. From the moment we stepped inside the building Barbara welcomed us and was very friendly and gave us a great tip to go somewhere for a drink. Franca cooked some amazing food for us that evening. Both Franca and Barbara give life to this place and really make you feel at home. It felt like a place that was so familiar, but away from home. Thank you Barbara and Franca for sure h a wonderful experience and chats! We hope to see you again. Aoife and Valentina
