Mountains and hiking

Up hill or down hill, across rich green meadows or fresh woodlands, idyllic hamlets, colourful vineyards or fruit orchards - not an easy choice is it?

We suggest: What about a guided tour across the local vineyards followed by a traditional wine tasting? For further information please ask the local wineries!
