WHERE WE ARE?

We will be in Biella, UNESCO Creative City of Crafts and Folk Arts, one of the most important city in the
Northern Italy, famous for its tradition of delicious food, wine and wool industry: this city is a perfect
example of why ‘Made in Italy’ is so famous worldwide. It is located in the foothills of the Alps,
and is surrounded by stunning scenery made of forests, rivers, lakes, vineyards and small typical
mountain villages.
This is a perfect location for a Pickleball vacation because of its wonderful history, nature and climate.
Furthermore, the strategic position will allow us to carry out many trips during our Holiday.
The home base will be a Relais Santo Stefano Resort, perfect to enjoy a relaxing holiday and play Pickleball (courts are directly in the resort).
From our wonderful resort we will start several trips and experiences during our holiday:
we will go to the Mount Oropa and its Historical Sanctuary, we will visit the Royal city of Torino, we will reach
by boat the wonderful coasts of Lago Maggiore and Lago Orta; we will try many of the best Italian wines,
cheeses and all the food specialties of this magnificent region. We will also learn how to make Pasta and
Pizza, and much.... Much more!
12+ Hours of Pickleball activities are scheduled and distributed among all the days of the trip (except for the
days where we have the entire day trip) and includes Pickleball training, open play and competitions.
