Ronzo-Chienis, Trentino’s organic garden
Mountain biking, trekking and paragliding with magnificent views over Lake Garda
Rural holidays in scenic terracing. “Camminagrestana”, “Mostra Mercato” and “Biobike”: Ronzo-Chienis and Val di Gresta are the land of organic products
Ronzo-Chienis is located in Val di Gresta, a few kilometers from Rovereto on the road to Lake Garda. Why visit? The climate is cool, thanks to the lake breezes, and the pace of the farmers lovingly cultivating the terraced fields with the characteristic dry stone walls.
Do you like good, healthy and wholesome food? Then enjoy the excellent cuisine of the local restaurants. In the summer you can participate in the “Camminagrestana”, a tasting marathon with a special ticket for families. Stock up on organic products the whole year long at the Fruit and Vegetable Consortium and in the autumn at the “Mostra Mercato della Val di Gresta”.
From Loppio (220 mamsl) go up to Monte Stivo (2,050 mamsl) with magnificent vistas over lake Garda!
Starting from the various villages, in the summer you can go on pleasant excursions on foot, horseback or by bike toward Passo Bordala on dirt trails. A moonlit snowshoe walk in winter is a truly unforgettable experience.
The trenches of Nagià Grom, Monti Biaena and Creino are a reminder that the frontline of the Great War was located here. Cross them and gaze upon magnificent vistas over lake Garda.
What about the thrill of seeing Trentino from above? Try out the rock climbing gyms, paragliding and hang-gliding schools.
Do your children not know what noise a chicken makes? Explore a teaching farm with them and enjoy the beauty of living in the country.
Near Ronzo-Chienis we find the ruins of Castel di Gresta, Castel Castil, Castel Frassen, medieval churches and the village of Corniano all bear witness to its eventful past.
