The Borgopetra park, although its still a work in progress, has been designed to offer our guests the opportunity to engage in numerous outdoor activities and leisure experiences. The trails inside the park invite guests to take relaxing walks, with benches where you can sit down to read a book or simply enjoy the tranquillity of nature. For those who'd liek to stay in shape offers also a trail for a brisk walk or jogging.
Over 100 olive trees spread across the garden and with their Mediterranean scents remind us of the tradition and history of the region.

Our park is a work in progress: the plants and trees that have been planted are still small, but will soon grow lush, offering wonderful multisensory walking trails.The heart of the park will be the "aromatic trail", a circular path to be fully experienced and explored and where numerous fragrant leafy species have been recently planted: strawberry tree, cherry laurel, bay and many other plants adorn the trail, waiting to grow vigorously. The experience we have designed will not only be olfactory but also education: the plants you will find at Borgopetra reflect the characteristics of the region, providing a 360-degree full immersion in the nature of the Conero Riviera.
Prunus cerasifera, also known as the cherry plum or mirabelle plum, is a plant native to southwestern Asia. It is ornamental and highly decorative, belonging to the Rosaceae family. In spring, before the leaves appear, it produces abundant blooms with white or slightly pinkish flowers, either solitary or clustered. The leaves are oval and finely serrated, with a bright green color.
The Linden tree (Tilia spp.) is a deciduous tree appreciated for its elegant appearance and dense canopy. It can reach up to 30 meters in height with an imposing and straight trunk. The flowers, arranged in pendulous clusters, are small, fragrant, and white-yellowish in color and appear in summer. Linden trees prefer deep and fresh soils and are widely planted in parks and gardens for their elegance, dense shade, and the delicate fragrance of their flowers. Their soothing properties make them suitable for creating relaxation areas.
