Owners of Castelo del Nero Residences have all the facilities in the hotel at their disposal.

For the ultimate combination of exercise and relaxation, spend some time poolside, where staff will be on hand to arrange towels, shade and drinks. Of course, it is not compulsory to go in the pool, but what could be more enticing than a swim in cool, clear water to the backdrop of fabulous vine and olive groves.

For those who prefer competitive sport, there are two tennis courts where balls and rackets are available and professional coaches can be booked. The courts are sunlit in the day and floodlit at night and are accessed by a shady tree lined path.

The fitness suite has a range of state-of-the-art Technogym equipment, including weights and gym balls, and for a flexible body and a restful mind, Yoga classes are held twice weekly.

After your class or workout, the heat and water facilities of the spa are the perfect way to achieve complete relaxation and, if required, appointments for a bespoke ESPA face and body treatment can also be made.

Bicycles can be booked as required and tours of the hills and local villages can be arranged and tailored to your fitness level (which, if you have taken full advantage of all the above will be very high).

A new addition for 2017 are 4 hiking paths on the estate as well as a VITA parcour.
