SNOWSHOEING

Snow is incredible. It changes everything. It hides trails, it changes slopes, it makes any familiar place look different and it does all of this with extreme beauty. If you want to go hiking in the snow, it is strongly recommended to have a good sense of direction and carry with you a map and a compass because everything looks different when it is covered with show! 

BAGNO DI ROMAGNA and its thermal spas

Bagno di Romagna is a small town of 6,085 citizens located in the Savio Valley between 339 and 1,500 m.a.s.l. It is 50 km distant from Cesena and only 5 km from the Farm.
The city of Arezzo is only 66 km away from Bagno di Romagna and this explains why for a long time this town had been a place to stop and rest for the many travellers who crossed the Apennines pass from Romagna to Tuscany and vice versa.

MOUNT FUMAIOLO

Mount Fumaiolo is the highest mountain of the Apennines under the jurisdiction of Forlì-Cesena province. 
The mountain is located among 3 different regions: Romagna, Marche and Tuscany, but it’s easy to reach from the Farm.
Close to it there are Mount Aquilone and Mount Comero.

RIDRACOLI DAM

The Ridracoli dam, which provides water to one million people since the 1980’s, is actually not a good example of balance between engineering and nature. Even so, it’s still a place of great interest from an architectural and a naturalistic point of view that deserves to be paid a visit for at least two reasons: the natural beauty of the surroundings and the opportunity to pass a critical eye over the environmental impact of the dam.

CLIMBING

Most of the Northern part of the Apennines is made of a marl-sandstone formation, which is characterized by visible layers of rocks where the vegetation is lacking.
While sandstone can form very resistant slabs, marl is very friable and this makes it unsuitable for climbing activities.
However, thanks to ancient geological movements (around 20 million years ago), some limestone rocks have arrived to this region too. Now they are all lined-up: Mount Fumaiolo, Balze di Verghereto, San Marino, Sasso Simone and Simoncello, San Leo, Perticara, Scorticata, etc.

MOUNTAIN BIKE

Did you reach the Farm by Mountain Bike? Well, congratulations!!
If, instead, you arrived by another mean of transport, but your MB is with you, congratulations anyway because this means that for sure you have good intentions!
In both cases you only have to enjoy your Welcome Drink and soon discover thousands of trails you can run with your MB!
