Naturalis Bio Resort, a magic place
where Man & Nature meets

In 2012 Domenico and his wife Marinella decided to renovate the old farming village within their own agricultural estate transforming it into Naturalis Bio Resort & Spa, a refined 5-star hotel appreciated today by guests all over the world.

The main reason for which they decided to make this important investment is in particular to say THANK YOU for the precious trust that many international customers given to the company, hosting them at the exclusive resort because without their trust none of what has been accomplished. A special way to return all the precious attention and positive energy received, in line with its People & Planet First mission.

The Carthusian recovery of the ancient farming village whilst respecting the history of the territory and maintaining its green concept allowed Naturalis to immediately receive the GREEN TRAVEL AWARD as the best organic accommodation facility in Italy . In the years, Naturalis received many important recognitions and above all become a destination for one very demanding sector of international tourism.
