Antares Agriturismo is located near Torre dell’Orso, one of the most popular tourist destinations. Torre dell’Orso is famous for its bay, for the pine forest running along the beach and for many other attractions.
The tower –the one you can see in the image- is the “Bear’s tower” after which the place is named. Probably its name is due to the fact that, until a few years ago, the rock had the shape of a bear laying down at the base of the tower.
