3 good reasons to eat local
Let yourself be guided by the genuine flavors of South West Sardinia, a simple diet that recalls our history and our traditions. A journey for your palate capable of introducing you to an ancient land where nature still dominates the landscapes and has forged women and men of our most recent past.
Living the daily life of Sulcis Iglesiente means walking along the paths of our coasts and exploring our countryside. On the journey to the South West you will be able to admire long stretches of artichokes or entire hills of Carignano, but also, depending on the season, stroll in search of mushrooms, asparagus and delicious prickly pears!
Choosing a slow holiday linked to Sardinian food and culinary tradition means coming into contact with its rural population and for this reason we recommend it:
- Choose your vegetables and seasonal fruit at km0. You will have happened along our roads (especially in the summer period) to come across small blocks of flats on the side of the road, here you will find the products of our farmers who sell what the biological clock of the earth says, from strawberries to watermelon as well as melons with seasonal vegetables;
- Choose, at least once, one of our farmhouses. Here you will find authenticity and tradition respecting nature and animal and plant life cycles. Let our restaurateurs advise you to taste a typical healthy dish made with local seasonal products;
- It seeks out our local producers to guarantee a strong local identity and a short supply chain that is true cultural expression and rooted in the territory. You will find honey, olive oil, wine, cheeses, cured meats, etc. Listen to the producers, ask how the production takes place and let them tell you how the land of the South West produces authenticity and healthy products for your well-being.
