Hamburg, 12 August 2021 – After gyms and sports clubs were closed for months due to the corona crisis, many people missed out on exercise: 40 percent of Germans have gained an average of around 5.6 kilos since the start of the pandemic. This was the result of a representative survey conducted by the Else Kröner Fresenius Center for Nutritional Medicine (EKFZ).*
For all those who want to lose a few kilos and be sporty even on vacation, vacation home specialist Belvilla, to which the TUI Ferienhaus brand also belongs, offers a large selection of vacation homes that are ideal for an active vacation.
Active vacation as a group
It’s not always easy to overcome one’s inner weakness. It works much better as a group. So why not travel together? There are two types of groups:
1. I travel with my existing sports group, with whom I regularly exercise together even before the vacation
2. I travel with friends who all like to be active, but have not yet done sports together as a group
Group type b) is best to choose a vacation home in a region where tours of varying difficulty, and possibly even different types of sports, are possible. In this way, the group can try each other out better. Tip: Do not use the active vacation only for your “own” sport, but think outside the box and also try something new. How about a rafting tour for the soccer players, for example? Or a paragliding flight for the hikers?
Active vacation with the family
Active vacation with the family? Absolutely! Nature instead of museums, sports instead of the sofa – on an active vacation, the children’s natural desire for movement and discovery can be ideally combined with the parents’ urge to explore. To ensure that the active vacation with the family is fun for everyone, a few points should be considered:
1. Pony rides, miniature golf, adventure playground: everyone is allowed at least one activity on vacation – even the smallest family members
2. “I can’t do it anymore” is allowed and a solution is found together
3. Not everyone always has to do everything together
Attractive vacation home equipment
Those who have worked themselves to the bone during the day look forward to relaxing in the evening. Many Belvilla vacation homes are equipped with a sauna, have a beautiful terrace or a cozy balcony with a wonderful view.
For guests who want to live out their sporting enthusiasm even more actively, there are, depending on the vacation home, for example, a pool, pool table, table soccer or a table tennis table.
From niche to mainstream
Vacation homes are currently more popular than ever as a vacation option. The reason for this is that many travelers prefer to keep to themselves and a vacation home offers sufficient opportunity to keep their distance from others. Many people also appreciate the advantage of being able to bring their own pet and travel by car. Guests also still prefer the flexibility of a vacation home, such as being able to cook for themselves.

Belvilla presents a selection of the most beautiful vacation homes for sports lovers and active vacationers.
