Marenea Bike Hotel
Your sea-front biking experience

The Marenea Suite Hotel is located in one of the most enchanting and renowned spots on the Adriatic coast, in the heart of the “Costa Otranto – Santa Maria di Leuca e Bosco di Tricase” Regional Natural Park, immersed in a landscape of sheer roads, cliffs and crags,fjords and hidden bays. The aquamarine blue of the sea, the pure blue of the sky, which is tinged with red at dawn when the sun greets our cost, the green of the Mediterranean scrub, the red of the earth and the thousands of bright colours of the flowers that bloom to new life in spring: those are the kaleidoscopic colours that paint our canvas. Fascinating villages are scattered like pearls all over the park’s territory, extremely rich in history and traditions, in multicoloured streetscapes full of rural churches and watchtowers, woods and olive groves where you will have the chance to find ancient and mysterious Dolmens and Menhirs,evidence of a past land that the man has called “home” since the dawn of time and has always charmed us with its beauty.

In a nutshell:

The Via Francigena is the ancient pilgrims’ route, some 3200 km long, that has united Europe and its peoples for hundreds of years. The penultimate stage of the Via Francigena, which goes from Vignacastrisi to Tricase, passes right next to the Marenea Suite Hotel and offers to those who walk or cycle its approximately 14 kilometres a varied and incredibly fascinating scenery, ranging from a a flowery countryside to eucalyptus groves, from pines and oaks to rural churches, crypts and watchtowers. For the adventurous who wish to extend their path, another wonder of this land awaits them: the famous Vallona oak, located along the road from Tricase to the sea. Its estimated age is approximately 700 years, and it is surely worth a visit.

In a nutshell:

A route that mainly develops in the hinterland and allows you to pass through delightful small towns such as Poggiardo, Vaste, Minervino, Giuggianello, Cerfignano, Santa Cesarea Terme, Ortelle. This unique route offers the opportunity to admire archaeological and natural areas of notable importance such as dolmens and menhirs, including the famous Li scusi dolmen and Monticelli menhir. The route winds its way through olive groves and woods offering its travelers a rollercoaster of intense and beautiful emotions until you catch a glimpse of the marvellous blue of the Adriatic Sea from above and then descends to the splendid town of Santa Cesarea.

In a nutshell:

The Terramare twists and turns through a wonderful protected area, a veritable regional park, established just over 10 years ago: we are talking about the Costa Otranto – Santa Maria di Leuca and Bosco di Tricase Regional Nature Park. The route is almost entirely flat – the difference in height is 100 metres – and shows its true colors when covered in slow mode. At Cerfignano the route proceeds along the Via Appia Calabro Salentina, a road from the Roman era with paved sections that leads to Torre Minervino in Santa Cesarea. Here the path opens out towards the sea, offering breathtaking views.
