The ‘Albergo diffuso’ – Widespread Hotel – Sardinia

The concept of “Albergo Diffuso” dates back to the 80s in Italy, when Giancarlo Dall’Ara, marketing consultant, came up with this intuition. A widespread hotel consists of different buildings, usually located at a  short distance from the main one, which works as reception, or central area to refer to, with all the traditional facilities of an hotel. The ideas was to renovate old small villages and transforming them into state -of-the-art accommodations. This setting represents  a very different venue for  groups, both for meetings and Incentives many of the widespread hotels have meeting spaces.

The bonuses of this model are sustainability and authenticity. It is a sustainable model because preserves and improve pre- existing buildings, renovating them, keeping original features and materials. Plus, it provides what most travellers are seeking right now, that is is an experience in touch with local peculiarities, flavours, people. Sardinia is one of the Italian Region where this formula started with success.

The result is indeed very chic, a rather discreet one:  Villa Asfodeli, in the old town of Tresnuraghes, is a charming place with charming owners, and consists of a main Villa in Liberty style, and a “casa Antica” with a capacity of 14 rooms, welcoming common areas equipped with all comforts, a small spa and a garden with swimming pool and sun terrace.
