Halfway along the road, between the blue Ogliastra sea and the rugged Gennargentu mountains, the smallest village in the Ogliastra region is perched at a height of almost 500 metres. Elini, which has about 600 inhabitants, extends along a valley covered in centuries-old olive trees, protected from the predominant northwesterly Mistral wind in these lands by the tall mountains. Its territory is filled with numerous springs, which make the area very fertile: olive trees, vineyards and orchards grow here, and there are also holm oaks and downy oaks. The most evocative means of transport to reach this place is the train: accompanied by the soft sound of the wheels on the tracks, you will travel through enchanted landscapes, between limestone 'buttes' surrounded by the lush nature.
