How to do
Locanda Colle Cerqueto offers various activities
to make the stay experience unique, immersed in nature.
Equipped floating dock
A new generation floating platform, positioned on the lake at the end of the path in the woods, allows relaxation and safe bathing to dive into the wonderful waters of the Salto and enjoy sunbathing surrounded by magnificent rural views. A pier with land landing allows you to reach the floating platform along a walkway connecting the pier to the platform in cases where the lake level allows it. The platform is also equipped with a Refreshment Point.
The cooking course
Tasting in the cellar
For wine lovers it is possible to organize a tasting in our cellar dug into the tuff, a typical rock of the Cicolano area. A selection of Lazio and national wines await you, obviously accompanied by local cured meats and cheeses refined in the cellar itself, all served with delicious sweet and savory jams, made by the farm attached to the farmhouse.
A unique and unforgettable experience, but above all a journey into the flavors of our lands.
Activities and surroundings
We are immersed in a land rich in history, traditions and nature, a spontaneous beauty rooted in every corner. The area, known as Cicolano in the lower Province of Rieti on the border with Abruzzo, was inhabited in ancient times by the Equi, a people from central Italy who settled there after the defeat suffered by the Romans around the beginning of the 4th century B.C. Until 1861 Cicolano was part of the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies in the province of Abruzzo Ulteriore Secondo. Following the administrative reorganization wanted by Mussolini's fascist regime in 1927, the Cicolano territory was detached from Abruzzo Ulteriore Secondo and became the Province of Rieti, moving to the Lazio Region.
In our structure it is possible to practice various activities both in summer and winter. For lovers of winter skiing, the area is well connected to the ski resorts of Campo Felice, Terminillo, Ovindoli and Campo Imperatore.
For trekking lovers, paths are available through the surrounding woods and valleys, while for fishing lovers, Lake Salto has waters rich in fish fauna. For jogging lovers, the internal road network of the farm allows for an excellent cross-country physical workout, while at the same time being able to rest while admiring the suggestive panorama. The natural and landscape attractions and the breathtaking views are perfect for photography lovers who will be able to immortalise unforgettable moments forever.
Excursions and tours
The area lends itself well to satisfying a wide range of tastes and trends: excursions of a historical-religious nature are possible such as the one to the Rocca and the Sanctuary of Santa Filippa Mareri, excursions with a background of “gossip” such as the one to the Rocca by Beatrice Cenci, archaeological excursions, as well as numerous and exciting excursions among the naturalistic beauties that surround an area so close to Rome and at the same time so little known to “foreigners”.
The structure is available to organize and accompany guests on off-road or walking excursions in order to make known the beauties of Cicolano, and beyond.
