5 hotels to rediscover nature in Italy Sea, mountain, countryside, hill

In recent times the world of tourism has changed: the attention to historic cities and their monuments has been replaced by a search for nature and the experiences it reserves. It is precisely on this experiential dimension of travel and the discovery of natural scenery that many Italian hotels have focused – proposing themselves as real cultural hubs in which the food and wine products of a region, its local culture and its views come into contact with tourist flows. It is a new concept in which the tourist is no longer a simple consumer but a real explorer who, inside the hotel, adopts a new lifestyle and expands his horizons with a view to slow tourism. 

For this reason, the editorial staff of nss magazine has decided to list five hotels scattered throughout Italy perfect to get back in touch with the natural scenery of our country.

Hotel Poseidon (@hotelposeidonpositano)

Located in a historic location, a villa on the spectacular slopes of the Amalfi coast, Hotel Poseidon has a sixty-year history. Each of its 48 rooms is furnished according to the dictates of that Mediterranean aesthetic that has become famous thanks to the myth of the Divine Coast and is also joined by the SPA service of L'Onda Beauty Centre, specializing in massage and beauty treatments. The real pearl of Poseidon is then Il Tridente, a restaurant and bar with a spectacular view of the sea where chef Antonio Sorrentino offers the best of traditional Neapolitan under a romantic pergola. Among other things, the hotel introduced new offerings this year that include a package dedicated to smart working, which also includes yoga classes, spa treatments, and lunches with menus designed ad hoc by the chef; and another package dedicated to "Day Passes" to enjoy the beauties and services of the hotels for a single day.

Villa Lena (@villalena)

This original concept of artistic residence, nestled in the hills of the province of Pisa and surrounded by 500 hectares of forest, vineyards, olive groves and organic gardens, offers its guests the opportunity to share special experiences, following workshops held by international artists, chefs and expert farmers. For 2021, Villa Lena has created a series of new creative retreats, all lasting 5 days and each dedicated to a different discipline: botany, spirituality and meditation, flower design and printmaking. Guests can also attend workshops on botanical cocktails and teas, wine and oil tastings, sample dishes created by the residence's chef, or simply enjoy the beauty of the place, swimming in the heated pool, or exploring the lush greenery of the surroundings.

Fattoria Tègoni (@fattoriategoni)

Tastings and lunches, horseback riding and cooking lessons. Those who reside at Fattoria Tègoni, in Radicondoli, Tuscany, will have to prepare to exercise all five of their senses because the gastronomy of the region is here the absolute protagonist. Cured meats, olive oil, Cinta Senese meat, cheeses and homemade pasta, local wines: these are the real and best protagonists of the experience that the Farm offers, together with the rural scenery of Tuscany to discover on the back of a horse.

Villa Pienza (@villapienza)

The magnificent nature of the Val d'Orcia and the classic Tuscan country architecture come together in this residential complex consisting of two buildings: one is the real villa while the other is called Villa Privata and is a residence for families and groups. This residence was born from the project of two sisters and a familiar air permeates every corner: from the large kitchen for twelve in rustic style to the heated pool, from the covered veranda for all seasons to the bedrooms and living rooms animated by the warm colours of wood and terracotta. To make the experience more complete, the villa also includes hiking programs, a wellness area, cooking classes, and tastings

Maso Zambo (@masozambo)

Hidden in the middle of the nature of Valsassina and extended for two and a half hectares, among woods and pastures, Maso Zambo is a real retreat to heal from the chaos of the city. Equipped with two rooms, a spa and a sauna, a gourmet restaurant with products that come from the same garden and farm farms, which provide fresh eggs and cheeses. The format of the two rooms, coupled with the rest of the spa and gastronomy services, is perfect for living a discreet and relaxing travel experience, away from the large crowds and close to the meadows, woods and starry skies of the mountains.
