To say you will feel welcome at Albero Capovolto is an understatement. From the moment you arrive at the picturesque property, located in the north east of Sardinia, you are greeted with wild flowers, luscious green lawns, exquisite views of the Sardinian countryside and a big, welcoming and genuine smile from the owner and designer Alessandro.
Albero Capovolto is much more than a bed and breakfast. The love and effort Alessandro has put into this home is evident and truly inspirational and can only be experienced to be completely understood. Built by Alessandro’s family and furnished and designed by Alessandro (an interior designer who spends the majority of the year in Milan), the family’s love of fashion, design, food and the local produce of Sardinia is exhibited everywhere you look.
There are six bedrooms – symbolizing each member of the family, with each bedroom an ode to a family member. The property’s crystal clear lap pool looks over an incredible view of the nearby agricultural properties and neighbouring B&Bs. Alessandro is also currently in the process of building another room away from the main house under a tree, possibly with another private pool. Dinner and breakfast are buffet style, comprising of delicious, local fresh produce, including local wines, beer.

However, Alessandro is more than accommodating and will bend over backward to cater to all wants and needs. Words fail when describing how peaceful and welcoming this retreat is, the house and company genuinely feel like your own family home.
Whether it be lazing in the shade, swimming in the pool, chatting to Alessandro or other guests or having romantic candlelit dinners on balmy nights to the soft sounds of jazz, you will find your stay relaxing, tranquil and if not a little insightful.
Simply put, this place is wonderful. The effort, love and detail Alessandro has put into this property is evident and has in no way been in vain. From sourcing foods from the neighbouring properties, to creating one of a kind scents for the rooms, it is impossible not to fall in love with this place that will have you daydreaming about it for months to come.
