Our blog tour – hashtag #atsansalvadorhotel – allowed us to discover a Riviera Romagnola a bit different from that one we usually think about.
Do you imagine relax, beach and sea? Of course, Bellaria Igea Marina is certainly this, too, (among other things with really clean water which astonished us) but this time we will make you discover another aspect of the Riviera Romagnola. The sport.
Bellaria Igea Marina is certainly a destination on families scale and perfect for children. But this not means necessarily that other family members have to renounce to fun and sport.
Sport in Bellaria Igea Marina
So we want to take you discovering with us the many activities we had the chance to experience during these days.
Have you ever thought to get up at dawn and going to the beach with the low tide to enjoy in the evening a very good plate of spaghetti with clams?
Of course, it was enough to mention it to Valeria and…she was there, yet!
It was interesting to learn picking them, to recognize their size by the little holes in the sand, to understand in a flash what are the alive ones and above all…yeah, the beach at dawn, when everyone is still sleeping, has a really unique charm to who is able to win the laziness of getting up very early.
The San Salvador Hotel places the bicycles at guests’ disposal: by them you can cycle and explore the surrounding land.
From the little sail centre to the vegetable gardens and greenhouses, from the pool to the sport centre having an agreement.
Then there are two gyms having an agreement, too.
The Gelso Sport, which is also a rehab medical centre.
Valeria had to experience the track, too, immediately!
Is it possible she’s just never tired???
The other one is the l’Athletic, the fitness workshop. A stone’s throw from the hotel to continue keeping fit.
SUP – Stand Up Paddle
Do you know what SUP – Stand Up Paddle is? We saw many of them in Florida and people used them really everywhere.
It was funny and it’s a sport that certainly we will try again. We’ll tell about it in details in a next post. It’s enough few knowledge and you are able to be standing without difficulty.
Sky Park – Adventure Park
The Sky Park in Perticara is an adventure park among very high trees where both the big ones and the little ones will enjoy themselves enormously!
You spend a day among the nature, at the fresh of the trees, among all sorts of courses of all heights and difficulties.
Any athletic preparation you have, here you will meet your match. Isn’t it, Roby?
Formaggio di Fossa
Have you ever heard mention about Formaggio di Fossa?
Here in Perticara there’s the possibility to learn everything about the production of this cheese which is really a result of ancient traditions which are handed on.
We leave for the beach early in the morning.
Today we are going to experience Nordic Walking.
Doing this sport in Bellaria Igea Marina is very easy. The beach prepared for the day, level ground and without holes, allows to going out early in the morning breathing the air of the sea.
You can do it in every season. A warm-up phase, a good walking for a few kilometres before the sun becomes too hot and a few coordination exercises. It’s a sport for all age.
The Hill of Poets
The Hill of Poets is an almost surreal place that seems to belong to another universe.
Vineyards, walking, jams, tasting, wine, schools…it’s impossible to tell about everything the Hill of Poets is in few lines.
It’s certainly much more than a farm!
Our day comes to an end here at tennis.
Despite the hot sun, the matches were captivating, maybe just because of our exceptional referee, Valeria: she doesn’t know in the least the rules of the game nor the score count but she decided that the footstool up there had to be hers, of course!
Tired but satisfied we go back to the hotel and we arrange to meet you in the next post where we will keep telling you about the sport in Bellaria Igea Marina.
See you soon!
