The Hotel Nascar is located in the historical center of Santa Maria Navarrese, a small fishing village in the Ogliastra. At 50 m from the sea and 150 m from the marina, in a garden of oaks and close to a thousand years old olive trees, the hotel has the advantage of being in town but not far from several points of interest.
The nearest airport is Cagliari, 138 km away, while that of Olbia is at 191 km.
The name of this small but charming Hotel Nascar has a historical background. The story says that around the year 1000, the Church of Navarre, as it is named now, had the name of Temple of NASCAR. In the year 1052, a daughter of the King of Navarre arrived in this part of the coast and, having overcome terrible weather conditions during the crossing, she decided to make a vow and build a church in honour of Saint Mary. In addition to this historical origin, the name of this hotel may have been suggested by a delicate yellow flower common in the Mediterranean area.
The Hotel Nascar is the result of a careful renovation of an old structure built in local granite during the year 1800. The building was originally used as a granary before being used for the production of wine. Even if the original architecture has been preserved, the hotel appears now to be warm and welcoming featuring a modern Sardinian style.
In addition to these structural details, we should note that the professionalism and kindness of the owners and their employees will considerably contribute to make of the simple accommodation a luxury place with details worth of an exclusive hotel. Moreover the hotel is proud to have been rewarded with the European ECOLABEL referring to the environment safeguarding.
