The feeling of sand under your feet, the sound of the wind between the leaves, the almost deafening and so magical silence of forests: in these days that we have to stay home to protect ourselves and others we remember how beautiful, pleasant and beneficial is to be in contact with nature. And we can’t wait to dive into the green, walk in the water and let the Earth take care of ourselves.
In fact, nature has infinite and immediate benefits on us: we have tried it on our skin and science confirms it. There are many studies that show that nature is able to calm states of anxiety and to restore a good mood by increasing the levels of serotonin. And it would seem that women living in the countryside live longer and better. So why not organize a holiday in nature and find serenity after such a difficult period? Here are some ideas for a vacation in Italy and around Europe.
Among the vineyards of Italy
There are so many things that make Italy unique. And one of these is certainly the ancient oenological tradition. In all regions it is easy to find small or immense vines, whether they are at the foot of the mountains or a few steps from the sea, where fine, excellent wines are born. And there is something more relaxing than sipping a good glass of wine while walking among the rows of vines?
In the countryside staying in an organic farm
Going to the countryside is always a return to origins; it is like being at home, rediscovering that natural dimension of the past. Staying in an organic farmhouse means living in the times of nature, touching the earth, rediscovering the true meaning of cooking, waking up with the chirping of birds. And, without a doubt, find peace of mind.
Discover the benefits of nature in the green of Umbria
