The name Funtana or Fontane derives from the fresh water springs which are right next to the 1.5km seashore walkway. Away from the coast, numerous vineyards and olive trees adorn the landscape. B&B Nostromo is situated on one of the many mountain bike routes in the area (maps are available) and is only 350m from the sea, perfect for sun-bathing. If you would like to be more active, the rental of bikes, scooters, boats, jet skis and pedalos are all available nearby, as well as horse-riding, golf, tennis, scuba-diving, water-skiing, skydiving, karting and paintball.
We ensure that our guests enjoy a delightful stay. You will start each morning with an extensive breakfast and after a day out or activity you can enjoy a drink at the bar.

Along the way you come across hilltop villages and Venetian style coastal towns with culinary delights. For mountain bikers there are challenging trails even up to mountain peaks (1400m) in the Ucka Nature Park. So as you can see, there are suitable routes, leading you through this beautiful region, for every type of biker.
