An oasis of mountains and woods of holm oaks and cork oaks, where the animal which is the symbol of the island wanders: the Sardinian deer. This is the breathtaking scenery of Mount Arcosu, a protected nature reserve owned by the WWF in the proximity of the Hotel Santa Gilla. With almost 4,000 hectares of extension, Mount Arcosu – which takes its name from its arch-like shape – is also one of the most important reliefs in Sulcis and one of the areas in Sardinian with the largest variety of animals and plants.
This area is a real paradise for nature lovers. A vast reserve with a huge number of paths, trekking and mountain-bike trails, routes designed to offer the most beautiful panoramas and admire the spectacle of the Mediterranean scrub.
