Activities and Sport
For sports enthusiasts and those who love culture and gastronomy
Agriturismo Il Poggio and the surrounding area offer many recreational activities for an unforgettable holiday in Tuscany.
Fishing and Water Sports
Lake Montedoglio, the biggest in Tuscany, is an artificial body of water that can be traveled by canoe, sailboat, or rowing boat. It is a popular destination for fishing enthusiasts and represents, both in terms of landscape and environment, one of the dominant elements of the valley, guardian of an animal heritage and otherwise endangered plant.
The dam, located about 30 km from the sources of the Tiber, was built between 1977 and 1993 for irrigation and drinking water, and blocks the confluence of the Singerna river with the Tiber downstream.
Today in the lake can be found many species of fish: perch, pike, catfish, chub, bleak, perch, sunfish, largemouth bass, and trouts from the river Tiber. For pike fishing, Montedoglio is one of the most interesting itineraries in central Italy. In addition, the alluvial sands are a paradise for bird watchers.
Access to Montedoglio waters is possible only by canoe, sailing and rowing boats. Motor boats are prohibited to maintain the water as clean as possible.
Just a fishing license and, given the variety of fish present, you can fish all year round
Trekking and Mountain Bike
The area of the Upper Tiber Valley is well-traveled by bicycle, on horseback, or simply by foot. Its paths lead to old villages or panoramic views of enchanting beauty.
Starting directly from our farm, you can follow itineraries in the woods that offer wonderful views of the lake. The routes are suitable for both trekking and mountain bike lovers.
The Franciscan route that starts from the Sanctuary of La Verna and reaches Assisi, is of strong spiritual tourist attraction and every year is traveled by hundreds of pilgrims and lovers of slow tourism.
It is possible to organize horseback riding and attend courses at the riding stables in the area.
