One of the areas where hiking and sporting activities also means immersing yourself in the charm and mystery is the Umbra Forest.
Over ten thousand hectares of land covered by lush forests, diverse wildlife, picnic areas and trails characterise the entire forest area, ideal for hiking, nature walks, on foot or by mountain bike, and to observe animals, flowers and plants. It exudes a mystical atmosphere being surrounded by tall trees which often leave filter just just some sunshine.
The Umbra Forest also hosts a Zoo-breeding of deer and Roe deer italics, whose conservation is one of the most important activities in the area, and a visitor center with the Natural History Museum also during the year, which organises workshops for children.
Is the perfect environment to feel in full communion with nature and to discover all year round the many plant species that thrive here undisturbed.
The residence Fontana Vecchia is located very close to the sea, a few steps from the beachfront and in the heart of Gargano National Park. The location of the residence is the ideal starting point to explore the surrounding area: the evocative lanes of the historical centre, the Gargano hinterland with its variegated vegetation, the sacred places of San Giovanni Rotondo and Monte Sant’Angelo, the enchanted Umbra Forest, the fascinating coast punctuated by mysterious sea caves, etc..
