The booking was simple and efficient and all needs catered for with zero fuss. The village / town of La Villa is dead centre of the Alta Badia valley and is perfect for exploring the area. There is lots to do round here in the summer and we needed a rest when we got home! The accommodation was large enough to give us all some space and the welcome pack was very nice. Would definitely rent out again if staying in this location.

Although we had a car, we didn't use it: the bus station (and the center of town) is a ten minute walk away (max) along a quiet road and on a pedestrian footpath through the trees. Local bus connections to lovely walking areas can easily be made: the staff in the ticket office are very helpful in guiding and directing tourists to areas of interest and provide simple timetables.( At the station you can also buy maps, postcards, stamps, shop in the Tuesday market, post mail...) The property itself has a balcony which catches the late afternoon sunshine, perfect to relax on after a day's walking. The kitchen is well equipped, the large double bed very comfortable. The neighbours are also helpful: the lady from downstairs informed us about some water restrictions for a few hours: we didn't understand Italian, nor did she speak English but she enlisted someone else to translate for us. She was also very accommodating when our rather wide car wouldn't really fit into the parking space available - she tolerated it outside her front door for a week! The owner, Patrizia, was most accommodating too. we never met but she catered for the dates that suited the international mountain event which we had travelled over to participate in, rather than stick rigidly to calendar weeks. I would definitely stay there again should I return to Cortina.
