Also well positioned, so long as you don't mind the steep climb up out of town, as might be expected in the area. Being just above the town certainly adds to the views. The region is great, lots of opportunities for climbing, cycling, walking etc... The town has everything you might need. We stayed in the second week of September and had every type of weather so would definitely recommend taking warm clothing; we found it much cooler than we had anticipated. That said, the snow definitely added to the photos! Communication with the owners was great - friendly and efficient.

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
