From Cagliari: Day Trip to Domus de Janas Fairy Houses

10. From Cagliari: Day Trip to Domus de Janas Fairy Houses

Very close to Cagliari, between orchards, vineyards and fertile hills, we find Pimentel a small town and agricultural center. Inside this town, in a beautiful landscape, in a flat area we find the Domus de Janas of Corongiu and the necropolis called De S'acqua Salida, dating back to 3200 BC. Still well preserved, they are a beautiful example of Pre-Nuragic architecture. In particular, the small but very important Domus of Corongiu still has spiral-shaped engravings that would represent the goddess of the eyes who protected the dead. But many other interpretations and interesting discoveries preserve the Domus de Janas of Pimentel that you can discover with our fascinating tour.

Click now on the "Book it" button. Do not hesitate a single moment, because this was the best tour I had in Sardinia ! Not only is the area just stunning. Antonello is the greatest of the best ! He is everything a local guide should be and so much more. He knows the area as his own pocket and cares for it. He is proud to show you this Sardinian pearl, but with respect for the environment (cultural and natural). He knows the do's and dont's and is not affraid to adjust the schedule and plan according to the actual situation. Too crowded beaches -> he will find a deserted alternative. Too little sunshine -> he will move the clouds. On top of that, he is just a wonderful guy, funny, has a lot of knowledge about Sardinia and is just super to hang out with. Antonello is the perfect guy, in the perfect area, offering a perfect day => BOOK KNOW !!!

Excellent day. Very relaxing. We saw 3 beautiful beaches for over 1.5 hours each that you cannot reach unless on a boat. We saw many natural beautiful features on the Sardinian coast, and our guide was excellent, he was great fun and impressively could speak most European languages pretty well! Would highly recommend it, just make sure you pick a nice sunny day and bring a warm jumper for the boat home.

It was a very successful tour, great beaches for snorkeling and swimming, a relaxed atmosphere on board, a fun and friendly guide, wine on the way back at sunset! Everything perfect!

Highly recommended tour with a super friendly and fun guide! There were stops everywhere and there was a lot on offer! We would definitely do it again.

Really worth every penny! The beaches can only be reached by boat and are therefore not overcrowded. I would do it again anytime :-)
