Activity Nature Training Sense

Try a new wellness experience – the best time to do it is while you’re on holiday!

Have you ever thought about your body’s optimum balance? Or experimenting with your senses in a natural environment?
Now, with ANTS, you can do just that – a wellness course that helps you reconnect with yourself and your surroundings.
At ANTS, we provide activities in the beautiful natural surroundings of the Chianti countryside, with body training and sensual development, not just through physical activity but also through learning.

Hidden inside of us, we all have something that can keep us young and healthy – neuroplasticity. This is the brain’s ability to re-adapt itself at any age through new experiences and interconnectivity with the environment. How do we react when we walk barefoot on the sand, when we eat a meal blindfolded or when we are suspended in the air?

Get involved and learn how to discover yourself – and it’s free for guests of the village! During your stay at Norcenni Girasole Village you’ll easily be able to reach the ANTS area with our shuttle bus, whose timetable is coordinated with our instructors’ sessions. You will also find lockers for your personal belongings, as well as bathrooms, changing rooms and the ANTS shop. Entrance to the area and use of the equipment is free; you just have to register on-site.

This year the ANTS area will be closed due to the necessary restrictions that do not allow a satisfactory experience. We take this opportunity to enrich the offer with other news and restart stronger than ever! In the meantime, discover all our activities and get ready for the next season: we look forward to seeing you in 2021!

Beach Activities

Service temporarily suspended

FREE! Beach volleyball and beach tennis are amongst the most enjoyable sports, and they give your body a complete workout. By jumping, diving and running your body will learn to be receptive to changes. From sight to touch, all your senses will be stimulated thanks to the contact between your feet and our special sand, which keeps a stable temperature even in the hottest weather. Entrance to the courts is free during the day, but if you prefer to play in the evening with some friends you can find out here how to book it!

Training

Service temporarily suspended

FREE! ANTS provides a functional training area with cutting-edge equipment like the TRX and our ultra-modern weights! Try out the hammock – exercising in suspension is great for stretching out your spinal column, or try some balance training with Fly-o, a suspended platform.

E-Bikes

Service temporarily suspended

With our next generation e-bikes you can enjoy the surrounding Tuscan countryside to the full as you ride through the woods on trails of different surfaces. This will train your body to deal with unexpected external changes. To combine training with your desire to explore, rent our e-bikes with assisted peddling!

Reax Raft

Service temporarily suspended

FREE! A brand-new type of sensory training – but this time in water! Try to keep your balance on the floating platforms whilst following the steps of our instructors. And there's no better way to exercise than having fun in the pool! Look out for our course timetable to take part in a lesson with our trainers.

Nature trail

Service temporarily suspended

FREE! When was the last time that she walked on a surface that wasn't smooth? Walking on a different type of terrain like our woodchip trail is great for stimulating your adaptation skills and toning your bum, whilst reducing the load on your ankles, knees and hips. Let’s get walking!

Jungle-up

Service temporarily suspended

FREE! How can you combine fun with training? Jungle-up is a wooden structure with ropes where you can perform exercises based on climbing and suspension! By making movements and efforts that you don't otherwise make in your everyday life, these exercises are extremely stimulating for your nervous system. Try moving from one piece of equipment to another without touching the floor – just like animals in the jungle!

Slacklines and relaxation

Service temporarily suspended

FREE! Hidden in the woods that surround ANTS is our relaxation area, where you can rest your body whilst swinging in the hammock and listening to the natural sounds around you. Remember that rest is just as important as exercise. And to develop your sense of balance even more, try walking whilst suspended on the slacklines – a tightrope between two trees.

ANTS Lab

Service temporarily suspended

FREE! Practice in our brand-new Functional Gym with innovative and advanced fitness equipment such as the Reax board, an “intelligent” platform designed to improve your balance skills, or the Reax Lights, illuminated tiles which will hone your reaction times! You will also have the chance to personalise your training program by booking your Wellness Test.

Guided courses

Service temporarily suspended

FREE! Make sure you don't miss any of our activities by booking a course with our specialist instructors: from the functional circuit to jungle training; from stretching to running to Reax Raft lessons in the swimming pool! Get to know your body, hone your reaction and perception skills, and, most importantly, enjoy yourself!
