A Relais that is serving as a custodian of ancient traditions.
Sa Cheya arose out of the reclamation of an unsanitary marshland located just a few short miles from Alghero, to which we decided several years ago to give a new lease of life and to allow it to make the most of the thousands of years of history on which it could draw.
It is a history embodied by two nuraghi (Bronze Age stone towers) on Mount Calvia and by the discovery of a Nuragic cemetery on Mount Carru, in the vicinity of what is today the Relais, and which could not fail to be recounted and passed down.
The story of the Relais began with prolonged reclamation and redevelopment works, intended to turn an unattractive piece of land into something new and beautiful.
What has been created is an immense 5-hectare parkland where, with great care and dedication, we have endeavoured to take in almost every variety of Mediterranean maquis, planting more than 10,000 speciments and, in the process, regenerating an authentic slice of Sardinia thanks to the use of trachyte, which is one of the island's typical types of stone.
We then proceeded with the building of the structure, encapsulating in its architectural design a whole number of references to the design of small Sardinian villages, with multi-coloured facades, so that the new addition would integrate with the surrounding environment.
Here you will find the true heart of our Relais, a place dedicated to those who are looking for peace and quiet while retaining easy access to the wonderful seaside of Alghero and the rest of northern Sardinia.
It is a space where you will feel very much at home, and where you will rediscover a sense of harmony and wellbeing in close contact with nature.
