Accommodation

During the holiday you will stay in carefully chosen accommodations with bike-friendly services (laundry and parking included) and for families. Authentic farmhouses in the countryside, 4 star hotels with all the comforts or family led b&b in the city center.

Our accommodations are also locations for yoga courses, tastings and cooking classes, but also for team building and Italian language workshops.

The surroundings

Vieste is one of the most complete all-in-one South’s destination with a vibrant movida during summer and tranquillity during the rest of the year.

Beyond the seaside and boat excursions to the marine caves or to the Tremiti Islands, don’t miss to discover the inland on foot or riding a horse. Sports lovers can surf or climb the cliffs of Gargano.

Road itineraries

The roads of Gargano will fascinate those serious cyclists looking for challenging routes. Wonderful ups and downs on the seaside, the switchbacks to Monte Sant’Angelo and the Umbra Forest, but also long flat straights along the Gargano lagoons. Perfect ingredients for a cycling holiday or a real bike training camp. The Great Gargano Circuit is a rollercoaster made up fo two rings for a total of 200 km and 3000 meters ascent, which has nothing to be jealous of the more famous Amalfi and Sorrento Coast.

MTB itineraries

Vieste is a privileged place for reaching the hearth of the Gargano National Park, the Umbra Forest, which bears a broad network of trails suitable to riders of all kinds. The Sfilzi route is a meditative immersion in the deepest green of the Gargano nature: a short deviation – you should make it on foot and in a religious silence – will make you visit a medieval fountain built on the only source in the forest. The Ginestra route, instead, is a really amusing downhill where losing breaks after having visited the UNESCO site of the beech wood. And, if that’s not enough for you, Gargano has a trail center, where you might want to practice some enduro or downhill trails.

Our bikeshuttle stays at your disposal for transfers dropping you off at the starting point of the daily route or picking you at the end.
