Charming apartment in the typical, quiet mountain village Chies d'Alpago in the Alpago valley, in the Dolomites of Belluno, in an environment with beautiful meadows, forests, hills and slopes that rise from Santa Croce Lake to the mountains of the Cansiglio and the Carnic Alps. The apartment is reached by a few steps, which lead to the back of the house, where, surrounded by flowers, you can relax in the outdoor area which is equipped with table, chairs and deckchairs. The interior is dominated by wood, which creates a warm ambience typical of mountain houses. The special feature of these areas is that all seasons are attractive, because every season offers interesting sports or activities. Spring is ideal for hikers: 50 km of dirt roads, 100 km of slopes for cyclists leading from the Santa Croce lake to the Cansiglio forest. In summer, Lake Santa Croce (14 km) is a paradise for water sports with the possibility of sailing, windsurfing and kite surfing, but you can also practice traditional sports such as horseback riding, golf, tennis and swimming. For those who are looking for more excitement, the area is ideal for flights with hang-gliders and paragliding. The autumn months offer wonderful excursions by mountain bike or walking (ideal for Nordic walking lovers) in the woods of Cansiglio (the forest is the second largest in Italy with its 5000 hectares), the season is particularly beautiful thanks to its charming colours. The winter months are ideal for snowshoeing (at Cansiglio, Col Indes, Pian Formosa and Malga Cate towards Val Salatis) or, thanks to the special morphology of its elevations, for ski mountaineering. In addition, the Cansiglio offers 7 cross-country trails and over 30 km of slopes, while you can experience the thrill of the dog sled in Pian Osteria, on tracks (2-12 km) and slopes, where international competitions take place.
