The Tenuta de l’Annunziata
Nature is at the heart of the Tenuta de l’Annunziata, thanks to the landscape that surrounds the estate, but also because each activity linked to the Tenuta finds its greatest fulfilment in the relationship between man and nature.
Located in Uggiate Trevano, Como, Italy around twenty minutes by car from the shores of Lake Como, the Natural Relais was born from the restoration of an ancient, abandoned property, the Tenuta de l’Annunziata. A renowned popular hiking destination due to the extensive areas of woodland included in the estate, it was purchased and restored in 2007 and transformed it into an oasis of peace and widespread wellbeing dedicated to hospitality and the valorisation of its environmental heritage. The Tenuta de l’Annunziata, consists of four beating hearts:
- Quercus Restaurant
- SPA & Wellness
- Bioenergetic Woods.
Twenty rooms of various types share a beautiful view overlooking the chestnut orchard in which they are immersed and a stunning view of the surrounding hills. The indoors of the rooms reflect the colours and the atmosphere of being surrounded by nature, which is emphasised by the great luminosity of each room. For special occasions, the Red Suite is the ideal choice: exclusive and private, it is located on the top floor of the ancient tower that dominates the Tenuta and equipped with private access. It can also be combined with the Belvedere sitting room, a warm hideaway entirely covered in wood that offers spectacular views. The price of each type of room includes, in addition to breakfast, a 4-hour SPA access per day of stay.
The Quercus Restaurant
Named Quercus, the restaurant of the Tenuta de l’Annunziata was born as a gourmet expression of the estate’s farm, but with a life and identity of its own. The summer menus homage nature with the fine dining card. In an environment extremely well organized for compliance with safety regulations, fresh and genuine local raw materials return to the table. For a gourmet experience, the Quercus also offers an informal Lobby Lunch, with two menus that vary every day according to the availability of the ingredients: fresh and light dishes, as befits a summer lunch, which in their simplicity enhance local products.
The SPA & Wellness
The SPA (also accessible to external guests) is an island of wellbeing that extends over 1,500 sqm. The relationship with the surrounding nature is direct, as all the products used for the treatments are made from the internal agricultural production of the Tenuta, like woodland herbs and berries. At the Wellness Centre, guests can embark on a full-regenerating journey through the various areas of the SPA: Indoor Swimming Pool with underwater music, Whirlpool, Kneipp Bath, Hammam, Turkish Bath, Finnish Sauna and Herbs Sauna, Emotional Showers, Ice Fountain, Sun Terrace and Herbal Tea Corner. A wide range of face and body treatments are available for various needs, together with the option of choosing between two holistic treatments, the Lomi Lomi Hawaiian massage and the Ayurvedic Abhyanga massage. The exclusive SPA Suite offer completes the wide range of available treatments.
The Bioenergetic Woods
Finally, the Bioenergetic Woods are the crown jewel of the Tenuta de l’Annunziata, making the Tenuta a cutting-edge holistic centre on an international level. This green oasis extends around the Relais for thirteen hectares, the basis of the experience is a concept of taking long walks in the countryside, breathing clean air and inhaling the scents of the woods helps you to fight stress and to recharge.
The Forest Therapy at Tenuta de l’Annunziata was born from a project by eco-designer and bio-researcher Marco Nieri : the Bioenergetic Woods are divided into forty different areas with various natural environments, where the presence of certain tree species creates bioenergetic conditions that allow to lower the overall level of stress and to increase the overall sense of wellbeing. Before entering the woods, each visitor is given a detailed map with the route, resting points and the specific positive effects to orient the sensory experience according to specific needs. For those who want to free their mind and enjoy the therapeutic properties of trees, a meditation teacher offers dedicated courses: from the sound massage with Tibetan bells to the forest bath, from the rain bath to the guided meditative walk (day and night with the lanterns), up to the harmonic bath always with Tibetan bells. This total immersion in nature makes Tenuta de l’Annunziata a cutting-edge center for the practice of Forest Therapy, a Japanese origin discipline that helps to develop a greater awareness and a better notion of the world, through contact with nature.
