This state of the art facility, equipped with pool, Jacuzzi, gym, wedding hall and express bar, is surrounded by historical and medieval castles and monasteries, a land once ruled with passion by Kings, Queens, and Knights with horses and swords and yet giving any visitor the magical feelings of being lost in time several centuries ago.
