"A beautiful ancient house where tradition meets Green Desing in an exclusive B&B" House SebastianoHouse Sebastiano, in use as a B&B and Contemporary Art Museum, is really a place where the ancient meets the modern Green Design. Restored with the utmost philological care, this typical two-storey structure is fully furnished with exclusive works of eco-design. It is in use as a B&B and Contemporary Art Museum. House Sebastiano, 130 sqm, is a typical courtyard house on two levels with an 85 sqm front garden, a 15 sqm back garden, and a 25 sqm veranda. The structure of the building is made of local stone, and thanks to a careful restoration, also the original indoor structure in stone, such as the floor of the living area, was brought to light. The main entrance leads into the garden, realized with meticulous attention to details. On the ground floor you find the patio/veranda, a spacious living room, a stone bathroom, a study room, and a small garden with a adjacent to and communicating kitchenette. The kitchen area, which is now located under a roofing of the back garden, can be easily moved inside where space is designed ad hoc. In the garden there is also a small utility room with bath. You reach the upper floor both through the stone staircase (probably of the 15th century) and through the back door which looks at the ancient road and the second entrance. Upstairs there are three bedrooms, a hallway and a bathroom. The whole furniture, included in the sale price, is made with exclusive works of eco-design and realized exclusively for this home by designer Angelo Grassi.

The products and the recipes date back to medieval times, with Roman Arabic and Spanish influences, and are the result of the culture and history of the agro-pastoral population of Collinas.Inhabited since ancient times the territory of Collinas houses some interesting archaeological sites: the remains of the Nuraghe on Mount Concali, the nuragic site Genn'e Maria, and the tomb of the giants of Seddi de Sa Caudeba.The complex on the hilltop Genn'e Maria consists of a trilobatus rampart, which encloses the original tower and a well partially dug into the rock, and a village inside and outside the walls. The original tower (perhaps middle Bronze - fifteenth century BC.) has a simple room. The houses are quite advanced and of high quality, sometimes decorated with elegant geometric patterns. The excavations have revealed findings such as: pear-shaped vases, flasks, jugs, bailers, braziers, pintadere, baking cups. All these objects testify to the hard work.
