Regional Park of the Euganean Hills was created to protect the area.
We are fortunate to live in a place where you can feel the deep energies coming from this land and from the thermal waters underneath the great Euganean Basin of Abano and Montegrotto.
At Agriturismo Terre Bianche the water that comes from a water table 150 m deep is pure and crystalline, perfect for watering the vegetables and the aromatic herbs in our organic garden, our fruit trees, and the lush surrounding lawn, while the volcanic soil gives a unique taste to our grapes and olives.
Warmth, water, scents, views over lush vegetation and hills with superb distinctive volcanic outlines – we have brought all these elements together in our Finnish sauna that features a window overlooking Nature.
