Il Faro Residence has been owned by the Murru family for generations. It has been on the forefront of local tourism since the 50’s and is born of the experience of welcoming and satisfying the needs of the tourist. The facilities are ensconced in the middle of that marvellous jewel created by nature – Capo Testa, a granite peninsular offshoot of Sardinia, rich in local flora and fauna, overlooking the spectacular Strait of Bonifacio.

We are located on the East side of the peninsula, protected from the Mistral (the predominant wind), facing the Strait of Bonifacio, wind-moulded reefs, beaches, a wonderful sea and a nearby Corsica. In the village, which is about four kilometers away from the center of Santa Teresa di Gallura, are located two restaurants, bars, kiosks, a newsstand and tobacco shop, as well as a small market.

Whoever decides to spend vacation with us will have the unique opportunity to enjoy fascinating and unique scenery, crystalline waters and exquisite hospitality, the chance to practice all kinds of water sports (snorkeling, diving, freediving, surfing, canoeing), or simply relax on the numerous beaches and lagoons that dot the coastline.
