The property is well situated close to but above the centre (4 min walk), and is well laid out, charming and very comfortable: it has a large living space which enjoys two terraces with mountain-views, you can hear the river flowing nearby. My bedroom was very nice. Great place and would definitely stay there again! luca the owner is also very helpful too.

Living room a bit dark opening up to a nice balcony to the northwest. We had sunshine on the balcony from 4 to 6pm (september) nice after a days walking. The only minus was the hard mattresses - not ideal for somebody having problems with his back. We will definitely like to come back - finding a way to solve the mattress problem. And Cortina - a ten minutes walk away? A place of heaven for mountain lovers. Stayed September 2016.

It was close to the village centre with a lovely bakers nearby, a small supermarket and butcher shop. We had a fantastic week here, which was helped by Lucia the owner who was so generous with her time and knowledge, she knows the area so well and helped us choose walks, cycle routes , eating places all of which we loved. The people were so friendly, and the mountains were spectacular, and we were lucky to have good weather too. My husband and my sons and I thought the Dolomites were beautiful especially Tre Cimes, which were glorious and a 'must see' for anyone who visits. We will be back- thank you Lucia for sharing your lovely Dolomites!
