  • Is there a gym

    For those who enjoy moving their body while on a break, we organize a personal trainer offering a work out outside the repetitive routine of the gym, in full contact with nature. The funcional circuit combines movements that we usually do on a daily basis and pairs them with others in order to generate greater resistance, muscle coordination, strength and balance. Such services are charged separately.
