Amazing stay in the Dolomites

5 of 5
My wife and I spent 2 weeks here and absolutely loved it. We loved having our morning coffee sitting on the balcony enjoying the amazing view of Cortina below and the mountains all around. There is so much to do in this part of the Dolomites; we were hiking at Tre Cime, Lake Misurina, Tofana, Faloria, Lagazuoi and its WW1 tunnels, Lake Sorapiss, Cinque Torri, and relaxing by lake Ghedina. We also hired bicycles from Snow Service opposite Cortina bus station on 2 days and followed the great cycle path North to Dobbiaco the 1st day and then South to Vodo di Cadore on the 2nd day. The apartment has everything you could need for a self-catering stay and is only a 5 minute walk to the local bus stop which takes you into Cortina (or a 20-30 minute downhill walk into Cortina if you prefer). Raffaele made the whole booking process stress-free and promptly responded to any queries we had. Thank you Raffaele, We will definitely be back!

Alessandra's apartment is large and well equipped with a long balcony full of geraniums.

5 of 5
Communication with Alessandra was very good. We enjoyed having the space - it made it very restful. The apartment is slightly outside Cortina which we enjoyed because Cortina can be very very busy. It's a perfect place for Summer hiking with many walks within easy reach. We would very happily return to stay again. Stuart and Elly
