Un’ospitalità molto di casa
San Teodoro is part of Gallura, in north-eastern Sardinia.
The 30 years of experience offers a proven and efficient accommodation organisation that blends perfectly with the local hospitality.
The town was established and has developed around its church, erected in the 18th century, in honour of the Holy Martyr Teodoro di Amasea.
Since the 1970s the Centre of the town has become the focal point of social life, so much so that the inhabitants began to call it by the curious name of Piazza Montecitorio.
Here during day people meet and do their shopping, at night the area becomes a pedestrian zone creating a relaxing environment to walk around with friends and family.
After a day by the sea you need only choose how to spend the evening with a choice of the many restaurants, pizzerias, ice-cream parlours, wine bars, sushi bars, pubs and, if you choose to stay out later, at the trendy and popular night spots.
Along the streets in the centre you can browse for a souvenir from the evening handicraft market stalls that for over twenty years now have brought to life the summer nights of the town with its colours and scents.
From life in the stazzi (farm houses) to tourist destination
The territory of San Teodoro has revealed evidence of ancient settlements, dating back to the Neolithic age.
Excavations in the area around the town have confirmed a settlement continuity that has spanned from prehistoric times to the medieval period, when San Teodoro was under the jurisdiction of Giudicato di Gallura.
Unfortunately the sources of information are largely silent for a long period from 1300 to 1600.
In modern times it would seem that this territory has been repopulated by people from North Gallura and from Southern Corsica: thus was born the civilization of the stazzi, typically gallurese that survived until the 1950s of the 20th century.
From 1700 onwards this area was known as San Teodoro d’Oviddè. The fundamental core of the town, that developed around the Church of the 18th century, is essentially rural.
The scattered population lived in large settlements, which served as the farm at whose centre the granite dwelling of the individual peasant-shepherd family was located, the traditional farm house.
The war marked a turning point in the history of the Teodoro community: the significant investments in tourism that during those years focussed on the Costa Smeralda also involved the small village of San Teodoro, turning it into the popular tourist destination it is today.
