The "Monastery of San Girolamo" is a magnificent Renaissance monument wrapped in the majestic arms of centuries-old oaks. Finished in 1503 by Don Ghisello Vandini of the noble Vandini family, Capitani di Frontino can be defined as from the Renaissance period. Inside we can find a spacious room, finely decorated with wonderful period frescoes; if needed it will be used for our Yoga and Meditative activities.

Yes, because when the weather allows us, we prefer to be outdoors: there is no shortage of space here, we have a wonderful cloister and a lush garden all around the structure. Alternatively, comfortable gazebos especially set up can be used for practicing Yoga sheltering us from the summer rain, without having to give up contact with mother nature. The ancient church, now deconsecrated, is available for various activities.

Inside you can find the magic of history, through a blissful silence that only the atmosphere of ancient times can help us to re- live. A fantastic opportunity for Yoga and group meditation, without neglecting the possibility of guaranteeing truly intimate and personal moments.

The monastery of San Girolamo puts at your disposal 14 bedrooms, of which:

  • 7 large Classic rooms capable of accommodating 4 to 6 people, with a private bathroom inside, plus an *external one.

The M5 alloy frame combines with the most fluid and powerful engine available in the sector and a mix of transmission components, brakes and suspension all results of excellent workmanship.

With these advanced models you will be able to tackle all descents and steep hill routes without any problem whatsoever. The Turbo Levo is a true progressive trail-bike on which we have lengthened the reach while keeping the wagon short, the steering angle very open and the centre of gravity low.
