The Serra’s hometown of Dorgali is on the central-eastern coast of Sardinia. The closest airport is Olbia, about 1 hour away. Alghero and Cagliari airports are about 2.5 hours away. We strongly recommend renting a small car as it is difficult to traverse Sardinia without one.


Cala Gonone’s weather is ideal in early June. It is mostly sunny with average highs of 75–85°F (25–30°C) and cool nights in the upper 50s°F (15°C). Suggested attire for the dinner party is “summer dressy”. No need to be super formal; light-colored suits and jackets are welcome.


We suggest staying in Cala Gonone, a beach village just 15 minutes over the mountain from Dorgali.
Airbnb is the most affordable option, with many furnished apartments available in Cala Gonone for $50–80/night.
Su Gogolone is our favorite upscale hotel in the area, a mountain resort 20 min. from Dorgali. Authentic folk art theme with modern amenities. Excellent restaurant for lunch or dinner as well.
Costa Dorada. Small hotel in Cala Gonone. Right on the beach.
Bue Marino. Highrise hotel in Cala Gonone. Right on the beach.
