We live in a unique land, where the rhythms of the seasons are the ones of our job.
Our town and our roots which date back to the pre-Nuragic and Nuragic periods (1800 a.C.), are located between the centre and the south of Sardinia, a territory with a centuries old agro-pastoral vocation. A town and an area where endless hills boast uncontaminated pastures and where tourist accommodation and wine and food traditions are our pride.
Important finds mark its age-old history, such as the small bronze votive ship bearing the symbol of the Mother Goddess, the Tombs of the Giants, the Nuraghe Su Angiu while, almost in “modern days”, 1614 marks the birth of the Duchy of Mandas, landed estate which was terminated in 1839, 49 years before the Caseificio Garau was established.
A very ancient island in the heart of the Mediterranean, where the sun, wind and sea have created a masterpiece over the millennia. Unique for its impressive granite cliffs, for its white sandy beaches, for its crystal-clear, transparent sea, with many shades of emerald blue.
Unique for its magic, wild, uncontaminated territory, where flocks graze near Nuraghi and can be seen moving along the roads. A land which offers visitors fascinating and mysterious Menhir, Domus de Janas (Houses of the Fairies), Tombs of the Giants and many Nuragic villages.
It is our island, where spry centenarians enjoy themselves with their playful spirit, the wrinkles on their faces the result of their hard work, tenacity, determination and great wisdom.
Sardinia is part of the BLUE ZONE, one of the five areas with the higher concentration of centenarians in the world, where life expectancy is much higher than the average of the planet. The other four areas are the island of Okinawa in Japan, Nicoya in Costa Rica, Ikaria in Greece and Loma Linda in California.
