It is located at an altitude of approximately 300 metres, on the slopes of the immense basalt plateau of Giara, on the side that extends from Scala Margiani to Corona Arrubia, in an area filled with centuries-old downy oaks and holm oaks, surrounded by sheer rock faces and moistened by temporary ponds. Assolo, a little village with 400 inhabitants, is surrounded by the dense vegetation of the Marmilla hills, making the views truly spectacular. All around the village, the woods make space for little roads, like Scala Cabirada and Scala Argiolas, that lead to the plateau, a nature reserve famous for the extremely rare Giara horses. In a valley situated between Giara and the hill of Giuerri, flows the evocative waterfall of Sa Caddaia, surrounded by greenery. Once upon a time, the village women would come here to wash clothes. All around, there are numerous springs: Abamasoisi, Genna Sobi, Cabirada and Barracca 'e Chiccu Soi.
The village, with its distinctive features, will remind you of a nineteenth-century village.
