Places to Discover

"The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes"
Cit. Marcel Proust

It is the 2.0 evolution of the historic "concierge". Instead of waiting for guests' wishes, the Local Coach offers ad hoc experiences, transforming the tourist into a real traveler. Let's talk about a highly professional figure that JSH has inserted in our resorts and in Rome, who loves and knows the territory of competence, and knows how to transmit, goes in search of addresses, artists, places that leave the logic of the tourist restaurant behind the corner and the small shop. A sort of travel consultant inside the structures, available to guests to offer free activities, excursions, unconventional itineraries, to dispense advice and strives to discover the inexhaustible riches, often hidden, that make our locations unique.


Territories to be discovered

With our local coaches, even the most remote and unknown corner, the most authentic and least beaten path has no secrets. The experiences proposed in the various destinations are the result of long research, which has the fundamental assumptions of originality and quality, all at affordable prices. Activities and programs start from more classic routes "revisited" in an agile way, up to completely unusual itineraries: tours, itineraries and local coach activities range from food and wine tours to the most varied sports activities, from exclusive tours by sea to rich and structured cultural itineraries, from ecotourist routes to smart shopping tours, to trips to discover the most significant local events, with special attention to those who love traveling with their families.
Whatever the passion that moves, the local coach will be able to guide, suggest, surprise and satisfy, interpreting and advising the unique needs of the guest.


Some examples

Some examples? At Galzignano Terme Spa & Golf Resort there is the "Voga alla Veneta", a tour on the historical wooden boats along the canals, among natural parks, wooded slopes, and beautiful Venetian villas. From Padua, by boat, you can also reach Venice along the Brenta, admiring the most beautiful and renowned villas that populate these places. At Acaya Golf & SPA Resort, in Salento, there is the sculpture workshop with Lecce stone held by one of the most renowned artisans of Salento, an experience dedicated to true Art to work in his workshop or among the millennial olive trees, the most ancient of Europe. Or again, the horseback ride through beautiful 700 farms, woods, olive groves and meadows, with visits to several farms with a food and wine tasting break of local products, and then continue, always on horseback, up to the WWF Nature Reserve of Cesine in Salento, and finally reach the sea by riding along the shore. At Il Pìcciolo Etna Golf Resort & SPA, on the slopes of the volcano Mount Etna, the inspiration for the 4 fundamental elements of water, fire, earth, and air transforms into suggestive and intense dimensions, with the humility for the natural majesty, to discover, or rediscover, the incredible beauty of this ancient territory.


The timeless classics

Among our local coach experiences, there are also the timeless classics. For example, from Galzignano Terme you can choose an aperitif based on the historic "spritz" in the center of Padua, or a visit to Arquà Petrarca with a tasting of jujube broth. In Acaya, there are boat trips to discover the most evocative stretches of both the Ionian and the Adriatic coasts. At Il Pìcciolo instead, it is possible to discover the wonders of Etna in countless ways, you can visit the extraordinary Alcantara gorges or visit Taormina and Isola Bella by boat.


What we do more for you

The local coach can then recommend restaurants and book them for guests, suggest trendy nightlife venues, rent yachts, limousines, helicopters and planes. Or even book tickets for the best local events on the calendar, including exhibitions, concerts, or theatrical performances. In addition to the programs and tours offered by our local coaches, there is also a more classic concierge service, but attentive and completely customizable, tailor-made, and managed at 360 °. An added value to the already extensive offer present in JSH hotels and resorts, to be lived in extraordinary locations, between Sicily and Salento, Veneto and Tuscany.
