Staying at Via Bruno Rossi 23 can be as active or as peaceful as you like.
You just can sit in the garden and enjoy the tranquility or if you are feeling more active, we have heavily discounted access for guests to a fantastic new gym with great facilities only a few minutes drive away. Well Fit in Copparo, is a large, light and open plan area with a varied timetable of classes and is furnished with the latest equipment for your use.
In association with the gym, we can also arrange supervised bike rides along the River Po and through the countryside around the villages here. The River Po is the largest river in Italy and it has more than 120 km of dedicated cycle paths along the riverbank. The views are beautiful and there is a wealth of wildlife to be seen along the way. Alternatively, we have bikes here at the house that you can hire for the day and we will provide you with a packed lunch so you can take yourself off on your own. The terrain here is nicely flat, so you can go as gently (or as fast) as you like. The terrain also lends itself to walking and running – we can provide you with several routes over several distances, which take you from the house and bring you back round again.
We work in partnership with the local vineyard, Corte Beneficio, which is just a five minute drive away from the house on the way to Coppara. http://www.cortebeneficio.com
We can organise a short “aperitivo” or early evening wine tasting session at the vineyard where you will get the chance to taste the local wines on offer and Via Bruno Rossi will provide the aperitivo food. This is a perfect way to start your evening before you head off locally for dinner at one of the many local restaurants.
Only a 35 minute drive away, Lido di Volano (and a host of other beaches down this coastline towards Porto Garibaldi), is on the Adriatic Coast. You can choose to just pop down just for an afternoon or the whole day in the warmer months. There are a host of different bars and fantastic restaurants dotted along the beach, serving local fresh fish, pizza, pasta, cold beer and ice-cream. The beaches enjoy a local family atmosphere and children are welcome. The sea is calm, shallow and warm – perfect for all levels of swimmer or just for paddling. We can provide you with beach towels and you can hire sun beds with large umbrellas for the day. We particularly enjoy driving down after lunch at the house and staying until early evening.
