The village of Suni, (the name comes from Asùni, which means “keeper of horses, oxen and donkeys”), is located on the characteristic basaltic plateau of the Planargia region.
The village center overlooks the beautiful valley of Mòdolo, known for its characteristic wine Malvasia, and its climate is particularly mild because it is located just 6 km from the beautiful sea of Bosa.
As a natural cross-roads, Suni links the regions of Planargia and Marghine through the SS 129bis to Macomer, and the village of Padria, the region of Montiferru and the town of Oristano through the scenic SS 292. 
In ancient times Suni grew up around the churches of Saint Pancras and Saint Mary ad Nives.
The human presence in the area dates back to the pre-nuragic period and there are evidence of subsequent Roman and Punic frequent visits. In the Middle Ages the area was covered by forests of oaks, of holms and by the so called "macchia mediterranea" (maquis shrubland).
During the Giudicati period, Suni belonged to the Giudicato of Logudoro and to the Curatoria of Planargia.

Festivals and shows:
Saint Pancras
, May 12th, procession along the streets of the village with traditional songs and dances;
Saint Narcissus, last Sunday in June, country festival;
Saint Mary ad Nives, August 5th, patron saint;
Saints Cosmas and Damian, September 26th-27th;

The calendar of religious and folkloristic events in Suni is particularly various.
The most significant religious event is celebrated in August: it’s dedicated to the patron saint of Suni, Saint Mary ad Nives; the festivities begin on July 28th with a novena and end on August 5th with the performances of folk groups and musical groups.

Dedicated to Saint Pancras is the festivity on May 12th, with the characteristic horse race called S’Ardia: the horses are arranged in pair and the knights exhibit exceptional acrobatic skills. 
The last Sunday in June celebrates Saint Narcissus: the festivities, which take place in the country church dedicated to him, attract many devoted people and pilgrims from neighboring countries and villages. On this occasion the organizing committee offers all participants a traditional dish of boiled sheep and good local wine.

All the celebrations end on September 26th, with the festivities dedicated to Saints Cosmas and Damian. On this occasion evocative songs are very striking: they are sung in Latin during the novena and depict the life and miracles of the two saints.

The feast of St. Anthony Abbot on January 17th is of ancient tradition and is deeply felt: a large bonfire is lit on its eve to illuminate the night. In the past the wood was carried up to the square behind the church of Saint Pancras with a procession of wagons, which now are replaced by tractors, but at dusk when all the wood is stacked to form a pyre, the fire releases its magical unchanged power.

Particularly touching are the religious events of Holy Week with the "washing of the feet" and "S'Iscravamentu", (the deposition of Christ).

Suni is a few minutes' drive from Bosa (7.986 inhabitants), town of great historical and tourist interest.
Bosa is situated on the valley floor through which flows the river Temo (the only navigable river in Sardinia for about 6 Km), dominated by the Malaspina castle on the hill of Serravalle, and around which gather the tall houses of the Medieval town of "Sa Costa", that go down to the bank of the Temo. The winding course of the Temo crosses the city from east to west and in its left bank you can still see the ruins of "Sas Conzas": the old tanneries built between the 18th and the 19th century in which the ancient inhabitants of Bosa tanned leathers.
Bosa is also a seaside town: its beaches are unique since they have a high iron content; for this reason they possess therapeutic properties and are particularly suitable for the treatment of rheumatism. There are also numerous small bays accessible only by boat, where the sea still retains all of its pristine charm.
The Carnival of Bosa, called “Karrasegare”, is a great festival which attracts many visitors; it’s lived with great fun and involves the whole community.

Naturalistic Excursion:
During the spring and early summer, you can visit "Pischina ‘e Paule", a seasonal pond largely formed by spring rains, where you can spot many species of plants and animals; among these, some varieties of birds that make a stop during their migration movements. The pond is located a short distance from the nuragic complex "Nuraddeo" and constitutes a privileged territory for the griffin (Gyps Fulvus), awesome bird of prey in extinction.
From "Pischina ‘e Paule" you can arrive to the valley of the river Temo, by getting down the western slope along the rocky ridge "Barasumene".
The surrounding area and the near Montiferru, considered the largest extinct volcano in Sardinia, are full of paths that you can follow on foot, on horseback or by mountain bike.
From the B&B you can easily and quickly reach the location of Cornus-Columbaris, nestled in a grove where the lovers of free climbing could find many bolted routes.
Monteleone Roccadoria is a little age-old village perched on a hill, little more than a hundred inhabitants, with a white cliff overlooking the lake Temo, one of the most popular destinations by free climbers from all over Italy.
“Bellavista B&B” is “bike-friendly”, as it is part of the structures included on Albergabici® and FIAB, so it offers services for those traveling by bicycle or simply intending to make some excursions by bike.
