Hiking and trips to the Gennargentu massif

The Hotel Ristorante Miramonti in Seulo is located in the heart of the Barbagia area, in Seulo, in the centre of Sardinia, which encompasses the municipalities of Esterzili, Sadali, Seui and Ussassai. The hotel is close to the massif of Gennargentu and offers the chance to organize excursions, hiking trips, trips by jeep or by motorbike. The area is full of amazing places to visit, which are perfect to experience an open-air holiday and long walks in the mountains. After spending hours and hours walking, the Hotel Ristorante Miramonti in Seulo is the reference point to rest, eat, restore your energy and start again your explorations on the following day. All the area of Barbagia is not densely populated. Men arrived and settled there carefully, without disturbing the local limestone mountains, its canyons and woods. The area around the Hotel Ristorante Miramonti in Seulo is surrounded by the Mediterranean vegetation, with trees, small wild bushes and wild animals. Not far flows the river Flumendosa, full of caves and canyons. Along its riverbed it creates many small natural swimming pools, where you may swim and enjoy some fresh water after a hard walk. Not far from there the caves of Sadali are worth a visit in Seulo.

The caves of Sadali are among the most beautiful caves in the area. Their name means “fairies’ house”. They are surrounded by a wood of holm oaks. The entrance is a little hidden, so that they resemble fairy caves. Inside they have stalactites, stalagmites and columns, which create a charming and dreamy natural architecture. According to a legend they contain the bodies of three “janas”, mythological beings similar to fairies. The three janas used to love food and decided not to practice the Lenten fasting. When a good local priest went to scold them, they decided to hang him. Their action was punished by God and they were turned into stones. Close to the Hotel Ristorante Miramonti lies also the Montarbu forest. It is one of the best-preserved forests in Sardinia and hides many rivers. They create charming creeks and small waterfalls surrounded by trees.
