 Trails & Hikes

In our rural tourism 
we invite you to take a break from technology, as the mobile network here is weak. Come on a 3km, 400m nature walk, past the graves carved into the rocks, the medieval apiary and the stream. Along the way you'll see birds and different kind of trees and plants. Listen to the sound of the water in the stream, the wind, the leaves... We have binoculars and books on fauna and flora.
