Villa Flow and its surroundings allow for many activities to be undertaken and we are happy to assist you in organizing these. Apart from that, responsible Tourism…that’s what we aim for….we try to support the local community wherever we can, therefore most of our recommended activities are performed by local suppliers and people from the villages close by. Please find below carefully selected activities that we are happy to facilitate for you.
