Short distances and gentle hill slopes, very fine sand beaches and country roads are an invitation to park your car and walk or use a bicycle or mountain bike or ride a horse. But you may also take off on a hang glider or sail on board a fabulous sailing ship. Ride on horseback between the rows of vines or drive your mountain bike along the cycling trails to enjoy the beauty of the rural landscape or trek to seize the emotions that nature can offer only here. From the hang glider you can navigate the coastline in all its immense beauty and admire the splendid picture of vineyards and olive groves, sea floors, river mouths.
