The Gallurese farmhouse

The Stazzo is a rural dwelling typical mainly of Gallura, and in Gallura dialect is called Lu Stazzu. This construction can be found in the north of Sardinia as well as in Corsica, but can also be found in other southern regions of Italy.

The word 'stazzo', from the Latin 'statio', station, is the resting place and home of the shepherds and farmers of Gallura. If in Barbagia the place used as a temporary dwelling is su Pinnettu, the equivalent Gallurese structure is the stazzo, which is distinguished by a masonry structure showing that it served as a real, permanent dwelling. The oldest stazzi date back to the 18th century when the first Corsicans settled in Sardinia.

Within the beautiful Gallura countryside there are several stazzi for sale which have not yet been converted or renovated, and the Demuro Estate Agency is able to intermediate that those interested in buying.

Type of Gallura stazzo

The stazzo is a construction made of rough granite blocks, covered by a double-pitched roof whose supporting beam was usually made of juniper or chestnut, facing south-east to make the most of the sun.

The stazzo often consisted of a single room used as a kitchen, dining room and bedroom. If several stazzi were close to each other, so that the farm was administered by several families, a cussogghja.

The landscape of Stazzo Gallurese is unique in Sardinia. The Gallura hillsides used for grazing, interspersed with centuries-old dry stone walls and propped up by cork oaks represent a landscape that could realistically have been on the canvases of the most famous impressionists instead of Provence.

The peace and quiet also make the countryside a perfect place for meditation and wellness activities such as yoga and meditation, as well as more ancestral activities such as gathering wild herbs, cultivating the vegetable garden or raising farmyard animals.
