Such an evocative Halloween review can only recall an equally evocative place, such as the Historic Relais La Loggia, a resort with a wellness center, which offers a holiday of the past. In the rooms of a 16th-century convent, historicity and modernity meet to relive the whole experience of an out-of-the-ordinary weekend and continue to have fun, immersed in nature and comfort. Three rooms, three different souls complete with accessories, and then a panoramic garden, where it is possible to do yoga or walk, even with an electric bicycle, thanks to the charging station for e-bikes; and then bar, swimming pool, sports area with equipped tennis court, golf course, Wi-Fi and private internal parking, to relax in complete safety.
During the weekend of All Saints' Day, in addition to the buffet breakfast served in the villa and the welcome glass, the Historic Relais La Loggia will offer its guests a tour of the Rocca with a guided tour of the village, a package of Halloween themed treatments and a 60 minutes at the spa, with entrance to the sauna, turkish bath, whirlpool, emotional shower and relaxation area, plus a dinner with tasting menu, all starting from 270 euros per person.
