When imagining a seaside holiday in Puglia, most people will think of relax, of doing nothing all day, of spending entire days by the pool and in the private beach, in general of all the best chances for complete rest after all your efforts.
However, some people will also make the most of their holiday to keep fit, or use their time off to approach new sports or catch up with their training.
So here are some suggestions for anyone looking for an active holiday, to be enjoyed in our 4 star hotel with swimming pool in Vieste.
Chasing a kite on the water...
Thanks to our entertainment staff and to the instructors you will meet here at Hotel Melograni
you will be able to get to know this sport, which is already all the rage abroad. Kite surfing
can be seen as an intriguing mix of traditional surfing and wind surf, with the exciting variation of the kite.
That’s right: a large kite acts something like a sail, pulling you across the sea thanks to the wind’s kinetic pressure.
Enjoy the mountain tops, by the sea
In the Foresta Umbra
, as well as directly in the Baia degli Aranci park - 11 hectares of nature inside which our hotel by the Gargano sea
can be found - there is no lack of possible hikes
or of trekking
routes, while continuing to do whatever you like.
is an extraordinarily generous area, thanks to its great variety of landscapes that will find the perfect agreement between those who love mountains and those who love the sea. Just ask us for suggestions, and we’ll point you towards many new and different paths and panoramic routes.
Challenge yourselves with your sense of direction
Ever been to an orientation course? Here, if you like, you can attempt something different: orienteering races
These two things sound similar but certainly aren’t: orienteering
is an authentic sport
, originally from Scandinavia: it consists of managing to cover a specific route, reaching pre-defined stops that are often spread around the woods
, in the shortest time possible, on foot or on mountain bikes
, only “armed”, so to speak, with your compass and your sense of direction.
Furthermore, thanks to the many sports and entertainment activities offered by Hotel I Melograni in Vieste
, you will also be able to enjoy windsurfing
, water gym
and much more: our group lessons
are available from June to early September.
