For all bicycle enthusiasts, always looking for bike routes or bike hotels, Tuscany is certainly one of the most beautiful regions to explore the area on two wheels. Terenzi puts at your disposal the bikes - upon reservation - to enjoy the splendid landscapes that this area can offer, during your stay in this extraordinary land of wine. If you already have your bike, no problem: get on the saddle, enjoy the Maremma and on your return, toast the fantastic day just spent with a glass of our wines.
Tombolo della Feniglia is a sand dune area within the Maremma Grossetana (Maremma under the Grosseto jurisdiction), near the town of Orbetello and few kilometres from Capalbio. It is a sand dune connecting the Argentario cape with the mainland and separating the sea from the lagoon with a beautiful pine forest in the middle. The Tombolo is a protected area and some specific places are observation points for the WWF.
You will not need to be a proven ornithologist (the lagoon is a privileged observation point for many species of birds) to make a nice bicycle ride along the Feniglia dune; families with children will be in touch with nature in an oasis of tranquillity.
There are two very visible entrances; one entrance is on the side of Orbetello going to Porto Ercole and one on the side of the Aurelia way, near Ansedonia (take the first exit to Ansedonia on the Aurelia if directed to Rome). A bicycle rental is also available here. The ride is 6 kilometres long, completely flat and winding across the forest with views on the beach and the uncontaminated lagoon. On the side of Ansedonia you can also meet deer so be careful not to scare them.
Uccellina Park Tour
An 8 km bicycle path goes through the park. Alberese APT info point is a good starting point, as many bicycle rentals are available nearby. Riding through the park will give you the chance to go across the pastures of typical Maremma cattles driven by Butteri (Maremma cowboys), the bushes where you will see deers, wild boars and different kinds of birds and finally end up on the beautiful and uncontaminated Uccellina beach, where you will find refreshments.
