The apartment is located within easy reach of the village shops, we walked to the bakery most mornings for fresh croissants. The apartment itself is really well provisioned- the kitchen has all cooking equipment you could ever need which is often not the case in holiday rentals! The children were very pleased with the mezzanine level and the toys and games. The village itself makes a holiday easy, swimming, walking and rafting. We particularly enjoyed Lac Bleu. Communication with Delyth were great- very prompt and helpful in all respects. Thank you for a great week- we hope to return!

Apartment was perfect t and very comfortable after a week long trek in the Dolomites. Andy and Kate were great hosts and we had everything we needed for a short stay. Tabitha
