About the hotel
- SETTING & STYLE
A sharp geological division separates the Golfo di Orosei into two very different regions. In the north, a low-lying coastline reveals a landscape of white sandy beaches backed by fragrant pinewoods, whereas the south is characterised by its mountain range, which until recent times, isolated the seafaring community of Cala Gonone from the rest of the island, rendering it accessible only by boat, or by the perilous path hewn out of the cliff face.
Nowadays, your first view of the village will be when you exit the tunnel, which connects the inland area of Dorgali to the coast, cutting straight through the mountainside to reveal panoramic views over the Golfo di Orosei: with the steep, winding road leading down through wooded hillsides to the town centre, with its lovely sandy beach and colourful fishing harbour.
The area surrounding Cala Gonone is just waiting to be explored. From the harbour, one can hire small boats or book trips to the lovely beaches dotted along this coastline, such as Cala Sisine and Cala Luna (Moon beach), many of which are accessible only by boat or on foot. Visit the Grotta del Bue Marino and explore its 900 metres of tunnels and underground streams. This stunning region is also popular with walkers and hikers, and attracts its fair share of climbers who enjoy the challenge of the surrounding limestone crags and mountains.
The Hotel Brancamaria is located in an elevated position with panoramic views over the bay, the surrounding mountains and the town of Cala Gonone.
The hotel is situated just 900 metres from the town; a free shuttle service is operated by the hotel to the town centre (three departures morning and afternoon, evening services on request at local charges). It is decorated with fresh pastel colours throughout and the common areas are airy and spacious. The comfortable bedrooms are in Sardinian style and located on three floors, many offering sea views.

'Helpful staff and excellent clean rooms with superb food. Mrs Simpson. September 2017
'A comfortable hotel with good food and friendly staff. Although situated on the inland side of the small town a regular shuttle service is available for tips to the shops port or beach. We love going back there. Dr Johnson.' July 2017
'2nd time and still wonderful. Even my sons (early 20's) said they found it relaxing and would go back again! Thank you so much'. July 2016
'The hotel was clean, the people were lovely and we couldn't find a fault with anything! The food was beautiful. Our rooms were clean and had ample space. The view from our hotel was idyllic - mountains behind us and sea in front. The atmosphere was relaxed and friendly and staff were keen to help whatever time of day or night. Cala Gonone is a pretty seaside resort with lots of bars and the beaches are fantastic. It is about 15 minutes from the hotel but there is a very efficient shuttle service form the hotel which runs at regular intervals.
We went on several trips and were delighted with what we saw. A fantastic experience. Thank you!' Belinda - August 2015
'Just returned from weeks stay at Brancamaria with my wife. Booking was made as a last minute and we struck lucky - both felt that some of the photos on hotel website do not do the place justice. Rooms new, clean, spacious and well equipped. Restaurant food was outstanding and always varied. A 60 room hotel so was never really busy even during August holidays - pool side area very pleasant with amazing views across Cala Gonone and it's wonderful beaches and bays. Staff great, nothing too difficult to arrange including a great day trip with Raphael to visit the murals in Orgosolo, nearby nature reserve and finally wine tasting curtesy of Cantina Dorgali.'
