Seneghe stands apart from the main routes and connections. Accordingly, it is one of these kind of places that you cannot encounter by chance. After about 100 km drive along the road Statale 131 (direction for Sassari), just before the city of Oristano, Seneghe takes shape on the southeastern side of the Montiferru mountain, with a stunning view covering the region of Campidano, the Gulf of Oristano, the estuary of the Tirso river as well as the fishy ponds of Cabras and Santa Giusta.
Seneghe is a quiet coroner of Sardinia with its doors always open to visitors. A place of discreet and upstanding people, silent narrow streets, and unpredictable encounters, for instance with a young guy riding his horse. Locals are used to say hello to everyone passing by, even though never met before. The usual peace in there is balanced by the lively atmosphere of traditional events taking place throughout the year, such as the Carnival, the religious celebrations and many festivals, that all end up with gatherings at the Partz'è sos ballos, the main square of the village.
During the first week of September it takes place the so-called Cabudanne de sos Poetas, literally the carnival of poets, a 3-day event that celebrates the beginning of the agricultural season through readings and gatherings devoted to poetry and literature. To follow, the appointment is with Prentzas Apertas, an event where locals and visitors are invited to enjoy one among Seneghe's richest productions: the oil, widely renown for its quality and taste. Accordingly, the last sunday of November, every year, houses and little shops open their doors to let visitors taste delicious bruschette, olives, and a glass of good wine.
The beauty of this little place affects its surrounding landscape, dominated by the already mentioned mountain of Montiferru. On its top, the basaltic rocks are undercovered by a wild forest of oaks that hyde a number of pathways ideal for trekking lovers. On the two sides of the mountain visitors meet lots of small farms where the so called “red beef” is carefully raised. It is an ancient and rare race of bovine that locals try to protect from extinction. In the neighbouring villages, such as Cuglieri, Santu Lussurgiu, Milis and Bonarcado, you breath an atmosphere of ancient tradition, due also to the presence of strong religious customs and beliefs.
