Marche outdoor activities

Le Marche and Valle Nuova are the perfect holiday location if you love nature and want to spend time in the countryside. You don’t need to go very far to see beautiful landscapes and unusual flora and fauna: our organic farm with its big woods and unspoilt hedges hosts great biodiversity.

Hiking, horse riding, biking, trekking, bird watching, climbing, spelunking: a wide range of choices for outdoor lovers to enjoy Northern Le Marche, an amazingly diverse and beautiful area.
If you prefer not to go by yourself we work with two associations of very enthusiastic people who organize biking and hiking adventures to suit everyone (enquire with us when booking).

Walks and biking

Both in the apartments and in the main house you will find maps of walks, treks and biking.

If you bring your bike with you we have spaces to keep it safe and we can arrange guided tours with expert guides and bike rent if it you prefer.
If you like walking there are many different possibilities ranging from a relaxed loop walk near the farm to trekking and hiking on mountain paths and along the rivers, accompanied by expert guides.

Horse riding

Horse riding is a great and different way to enjoy the beautiful Le Marche countryside. We organize rides in the countryside with expert instructors who will lead along the most picturesque trails in the area.

We also have stables available for those who bring their own horses.

Natural parks

The Locanda stands just a few miles away from the beautiful Riserva Naturale Gola del Furlo (Furlo Gorge) with its imposing rock faces, the green river and the peculiar flora and fauna (including wolves and some pairs of golden eagles).

We are also a short drive from Parco del Sasso Simone e Simoncello, Parco del Monte Cucco, Parco Regionale Naturale Gola della Rossa e di Frasassi (with the amazing Frasassi Caves where you can choose between the relaxed tour and the “Speleo-adventure” tour) and the “in the making” Parco Nazionale del Catria, Nerone e Alpe della Luna.

Coast and rivers

In Fano (40 minutes drive) you will find typical Adriatic sea sandy beaches. If you prefer rocky and dramatic coastlines, Parco del Monte San Bartolo and the Conero area can be reached in about an hour.

If you’d rather skip the beach but still like the idea of wild swimming or a refreshing day, we’ll be glad to suggest fascinating river spots for a different experience.


After a busy day of sightseeing, art, architecture and walks, relax by the pool or in your private outside space, enjoying the sweeping view of the landscape and, if you wish, the company of our pets. You can take a relaxed walk around the farm to meet our cows or just sip a glass of wine. You’ll be immersed in the beauty of the countryside of Le Marche.

In early June the warm evenings are filled with fireflies!
