The Estate

Family Tradition
Go straight, take a hairpin bend, a turn ......... Pilastru estate. In the heart of the Gallura countryside between granite and junipers, olive trees, dry stone walls, memories of ancient times and modern times. The wind digs and marks the rocks, gives a sinuous movement that goes well with the swaying of the branches of the well-kept vegetation that surrounds every single house. The stories of Minnannu echo through the trees. Minnnnu a Gallura term for grandfather, the only custodian of the vast property bequeathed to his daughter Maddalena and her husband Sig Piero. The family's adventure began in 1980 when they started farming livestock. Fatigue, sacrifices, commitment and union The impossible mission of 2005: to allow all those who wanted to take a leap of faith, explore and experiment to breathe in the Gallura countryside.
It was a family friend, architect Savin Couelle who drew us the layout of all the buildings built around the 1840's farmhouse after having listened to the stories, the tales and the desires. Tenuta Pilastru was created to be a refuge from the frenzy of the coast, to be a haven of peace, of sounds, of scents, colours and shades. 15 km separate us from the sea and we're only a few metres from the archaeological sites of the necropolis of Li Muri and the Tombs of the Giants. The traditional cuisine of the restaurant with a selection of Gallura traditional dishes, the freshness of the meat reared on the farm and the fresh pasta made in our kitchen is highly valued and appreciated. We offer guests walks on trails to be followed light of heart and curious of mind, relaxation by the pool, the care and attention of the wellness centre and a culinary experience in the fresh pasta making workshop.
Tenuta Pilastru is a refuge stemming from a family dream, from the attempt to convey emotions, memories and the everyday countryside lifestyle which is so obvious and natural for people like us who have experienced it since childhood and who often, over the years, have heard an affirmation echoing in the distance "one day when you grow up, you won't come here anymore". Yet still we are here, because we believe in the estate and because in it we have found the beginning of a path whose horizon remains to be scrutinised. The Filigheddu family opens up its world to you and, with the help of its historical collaborators, it offers you a new holiday experience.
