If you dream of a seaside resort, the beautiful and clean sea in Puglia, which combines relaxation, activities for the whole family, wellness and spa, golf, attention to children, the right destination is Vivosa Apulia Resort (Ugento, LE). The ideal place immersed in an enchanted corner of Salento: the welcome, the nature and the beauty traetments are perfect for an authentic anti-stress holiday, full of wellbeing. The spa is a oasis of well-being equipped with a large Finnish sauna (80°C), a bio-sauna that does not exceed 60°C and a Hammam to purify the body. You can add the Kneipp path, the relaxation area and a path along the sensory showers. Try Facelift Gym, a method born in the backstages of the world’s most famous theatres, from the Moulin Rouge in Paris to the Bolshoi Opera in Moscow. If you want a more active holiday, you can choose cycling or horseriding, walking inside the Ugento Coast park where the Vivosa Apulia Resort is immersed, climbing on the top of the trees or between the first fruits of the garden, or golf.
A whole village around wellbeing? It is Borgobrufa Spa Resort * * * * in Torgiano (PG) in the heart of Umbria. The farmhouse, the noble Villa and the other typical Umbrian constructions, surrounded by vineyards and olive trees, on an area of more than 12 hectares: Borgobrufa Spa Resort is a kingdom of tranquillity, wellbeing and luxury. Those seeking a holiday away from the everyday routine and bustle of the city, find in the Borgobrufa SPA Resort their own destination: oasis of tranquillity and relaxation, harmony and peace.

If you love mountain, Cristallo Resort & Spa has always been (since 1901) one of the hubs of summer of Cortina d’Ampezzo, full of events to discover the glamorous side of the mountain. In particular the 5 stars hotel proposes a journey in flavours and perfumes, in stages, through various culinary events during the season.
The iconic hotel is housed in a historic building that hosted the Winter Olympics games and welcomed many famous guests, film crews and celebrities like Frank Sinatra, and boasts a majestic view that sweeps from the city of Cortina D’Ampezzo in the Dolomites. The spectacular 1600-square-metre spa – Ultimate Crystal Spa – uses only local raw materials for Swiss beauty Center treatments and includes a spacious Fitwell Club.

In this perfect hotel for those who love to relax in mountains, they takes into account the different needs of the guests: luxury, quiet and relaxation for couples, fun for families that can enjoy the areas designed for children’s fun.

If you do not want to get away from the city, a few km from Biella, between Milan and Turin, immersed in a green oasis of absolute relaxation, you can find Santo Stefano SPA Relais (Sandigliano, BI) where you can spend a pleasant and relaxing staying. The context of Biella countryside is combined with the excellent crumbs of Nuxe SPA. The Cascina Casazza and Santo Stefano SPA Relais combine tradition and modernity: history survives inside with the furnishings of the rooms remained almost unchanged, but renewed by a touch of modern art, represented by extraordinary paintings that take care of the environments. Pastel colors, warm shades, gold, ochre, all in perfect harmony with the tradition that assumes different colors and meanings.
In Tuscany, Castello del Nero (Tavarnelle Val di Pesa, FI) is not only a luxury hotel but a residence full of history: already residence of the noble Florentine families of Nero and Torrigiani, it has been restored to the highest standards, while preserving 900 years of architecture. Travellers looking for authentic Tuscany will find themselves immersed in the heart of the renowned Chianti region, where you can discover the rich flavours of its seasonal products in La Torre restaurant (1 Michelin star) or try the rejuvenating treatments at the Espa SPA. In Castellod el Nero, surrounded by the beauties of nature, you will treat yourself using ESPA products of which I have often spoken, discovered thanks to the box of lookfantastic, since they are used in the SPA with which Castello del Nero shares the idea that the force of nature allows to relax, regenerate and renew our body. ESPA has created for Castello del Nero an exclusive treatment that introduces the use of extra-virgin olive oil and lavender with soothing power, both produced on site.
