PLACES OF INTEREST IN AND AROUND THE RESORT

This section introduces you to some leisure time ideas: tips for interesting side trips, activities you can organise at our resort and in the immediate vicinity and also events taking place this year in the Senica region.

Detailed information about leisure time activities at our resort and in the surrounding area is available at the Penati Golf Course reception desk, where you can find promotional leaflets and trail maps for walking, Nordic walking and cycling.

We would also like to point out at this time that there is an information service for our club members, resort guests and owners of recreational villas inside the resort, providing information about active leisure in the area around the resort together with contact information, maps, promotional leaflets, etc., and clients can individually organise activities themselves at places outside the resort.

Activities in the resort are provided in full, including hire of bicycles, rowboats, pedalos, sports equipment and the like – available to you from our staff at the club reception area.

This selection of tips for spending your leisure time is not final, and we are constantly seeking new and remarkable destinations and possibilities that are being continuously updated.
