Nature and relaxation. Located in the heart of the Cilento and Vallo di Diano National Park. Within a SIC area (Site of Community Importance) of 3,024 hectares which includes a large part of the Alento river, the Oasi Fiume Alento is a large nature park that offers a wide range of tourist services. In the complex there is a dam in earth that, blocking the course of the river, originates an artificial lake of around 1.7 kmqs.
Along the right bank of the water course, the naturalistic oasis develops, consisting of ponds of important ecological value. The integrity of the natural habitat of the Oasis has for years been an original attraction for families, schools and sportsmen. I am available to guests: guided tours, nature excursions on horseback and by bike, with cars and electric buses. Furthermore there are educational workshops. There are boat trips on the lake and there is also the botanical garden, a picnic area with barbecue, two bars, soccer fields and volleyball courts. It has area for thematic exhibitions and banqueting, shop with typical products, archery, sailing, trekking paths, birdwatching huts, bike and mountain bike rental, playground and congress center.
Located within the Oasi Alento complex, the “Sosta Mediterranea” restaurant offers typical, healthy and tasty dishes thanks to the Km0 formula (also called short chain) which consists in the use of raw materials acquired from local producers: from the Chickpeas of Cicerale , to the handmade pasta, from the vegetables used for the so-called narrow soups typical of the Cilento area, to the cleverly thought desserts combined with a seasonal fruit.
The PicNic Area is equipped to provide you with everything you need to spend a day outdoors, self-managing your lunch: wooden tables, fixed outdoor barbecues and large green areas.
