    Amazing activities for you

    Imagine yourself hanging upside down from a yoga hammock, right on the Adriatic or enjoying a massage while immersed in hot water, or trekking the Apennines in the footsteps of migrating shepherds, and buying seafood directly off a fishermans boat and turning it into a delicious local specialty with your own hands. Imagine all of that, and yet being only two hours away from la "Dolce Vita" of the Italian capital.

    Yoga

    Hatha yoga classes will be running each morning and each evening. Unnata Aerial yoga classes will take place on the beach every evening. Classes will be taught in English, but the team of instructors is very international and spans from Argentina to Korea.

    Abruzzo is known as the Green Region of Europe thanks to its three national parks, a regional park and more than thirty natural reserves that protect more than a third of the region. A new national park is also emerging and will embrace all the beautiful Costa of Trabocchi, where Bagni Vittoria is lucky to be overlooking.

    Every day, you can decide to explore the coast, where cliffs and large sandy beaches alternate or you can easily reach the nearby mountains where, in just 40 minutes, you can reach an altitude of 1620 meters and still have a stunning view of the sea.

    The naturalistic beauties are just some of the treasures that surround the region. Throughout the year, in fact, you can experience ancient traditions that have been passed on for generations and still take place, during village celebrations. These celebrations are always a great moment to explore traditional cuisine specialties.
