Health and Fitness farm holidays

Combine a bit of joie-de-vivre, a little vitality and a dose of good old-fashioned nature and you have the recipe for a health and fitness holiday on one of South Tyrol’s farms. The resident farmers will impart their age-old wisdom over the healing power of plants, along with the latest discoveries concerning healthy living. Spoil yourself with hay or milk baths, massages, face packs, purifying treatments, fasting periods, grape or foot baths and relaxation exercises. You can take your pick from the excellent array of natural farm products: fruit, vegetables, butter, jams, honey, various cheeses – enough to make your mouth water. You can find out about the effects and side-effects of the various treatments and cures by asking the ‘experts’ on the farm.
