The Sardinian Sheep-Fold - Lunch with the goat-herd in Baunei Sardinia

SOME  POSSIBLE  WALKS

THE PIRAS FAMILY'S SHEEP-FOLD:  a place that preserves the traditions of Baunei

WHO  WE  ARE

Salvatore e Paolo, who were born in Supramonte, have inherited their ancestors' memory and know the smallest corners very well. They will offer you a unique guiding service.


MORE INFORMATION

 

The Piras family's sheep-fold (in Sardinian "su coile", a Baunei dialect term) is devoted to goat breeding. It is located in an interesting site: you can see how the Baunei Supramonte slides into the sea.
These sheep-folds "coile de cabras" are interesting to visit: Goat-herds used to live there during several solitary months or with their families at some periods. The goat cheese is made there after each milking.

The goat-herd's hut is composed of two main parts, a cylindrical base built on a dry wall of chalky stones and a conical roof made of juniper tree logs.
The juniper tree "su s'inniperu" in the local dialect, is a very hard scented wood hardly attacked by insects. That is why it is preferred to holm-oak wood.
You will find several well-preserved goat pens and they are considered as jewels of local Supramonte architecture. They are also made of juniper tree wood, they are large and almost circular.

The different parts of the sheep-fold are:
- "su baraccu" the goat-herd's hut
- "sa corte" the goat pen
- "as cumbulas" the pig pen.

You will also see how the goat-herd makes cheese and you will sit next to him to taste the local dishes.
