Great apartment in a great location

5 of 5
Stayed here with a large group of friends, using both the top floor apartment and the basement. Basement was only used for sleeping, but that worked fine, we simply hung out upstairs. Really nice place, views from the balcony are amazing. We spent most evenings there watching the sun go down. Apartment well stocked and had everything we needed. A little cozy at meal times but there were 9 of us, so that's to be expected. We self catered most nights (not many restaurants open in Cortina in May). We did run out of gas one night (spare bottle was already empty!), but thankfully we'd just finished cooking our meal. Camila had this sorted after breakfast the next day though. A bit of an uphill walk out of Cortina, but we knew that, and this did mean it was wonderfully quite. And lots of grass for sunbathing outside. Great value for money and would consider staying here again.
