The hamlet is one of the most evocative and inviting areas of Cortina. It is characterised by the timbered houses and the small church of Santa Giuliana. The area is quiet and well connected to the city centre. Good connection to the ski lifts of Faloria and Cristallo: you can reach these ski areas from the chiarlifts of Rio Gere which are just 4,5 km away. The property is located near the curch of Santa Giuliana. It is a typical Ampezzo rural house renovated in the eighties. It has a parking space outside and a beautiful garden in the back home with a nice view on the Pomagagnon. The (ski) bus, which runs every 50 minutes to town, stops 130 m from the house. There are: 2 restaurants within 200 meters, a third one is just 800 m away and 2 paid playgrounds for children about 1 and 2 km away from the house.
Hey, I’m Giovanni! I am 34 years old but I have been told, I don't look it and I feel young for my age. I like music and playing accordion as often as I can, even if at an amateur level but let's say with (some) dignity. I love the blue sky, good weather, music, photography and travelling. I would like to do many other things but there are only 24 hours in a day but one day I hope to get to do all the things I want to do.. Obviously I love the mountains both in the summer and winter but I prefer it during summer when I can climb up the tracks with my Mountain Bike! Hope to host you soon!
A cosy, characterful, comfortable, clean and well equipped apartment on outskirts of Cortina with great views of mountains. The walking was amazing with great views, interesting plants (still lots of flowers in september), cute marmots and not to forget the mountain refuges where you could stop for a civilised cappucino and strudel! Also did some via ferrata (hiring gear in Cortina). Hope to return as so much more walking to do. Owner was helpful and kindly got us milk as shops all closed on a Sunday (note sunday closing taken seriously in Cortina despite being tourist area!). The only thing slightly wrong on property description was that there was no oven (hob only) and the toaster was a toasted sandwich maker (but who needs toast when you can have italian pastries!).
What a fantastic gem in Cortina! We were greeted upon arrival by the owner & given lots of helpful information about the local area & hikes. The apartment is very clean, quaint & had everything we needed. It is so close to everything in town & a short drive to lots of trailheads. We loved our stay & hope to revisit!!
Attractive, clean, well-designed compact holiday apartment in traditional chalet on quiet rural side-road on outskirts of Cortina. Perfect for 2 people though more could squeeze in with sofa bed. Picnic table surrounded by wild flower meadow with stunning 360 degree view of Dolomites. Very helpful and friendly manager (Giovanni). Bathroom and cooking facilities excellent - latter especially important as in early June few eating places had opened for the summer season. Did 2 great hikes direct from the apartment, others just a short drive to well-organised car parks and trails. Gentians and Ladies' Slipper orchids were blooming!
We want to say to Govanni that the stay was amazing for the hospitality and the warm welcome. He was very friendly, always willing to help and explain anything. We are also very happy with the apartament: not too big but for 2 people it was perfect and cosy.It is in a very beautiful place near a little town (7 minutes by bus) and with mountins all around. We really enjoyed it and would definitely recommend Cortina and this apartment.
Giovanni was the best host we've had. From the very beginning, he was easy to communicate to and eager to give us recommendations around Cortina. When we arrived, he met us at the bus stop and drove us to the apartment. After a tour of the place, he pointed to a map on the kitchen table various hikes that he recommended, and even inquired about rental cars for us during our stay. We ended up hiking Lagazuoi with Giovanni, and had a wonderful day exploring the WWI tunnels and "offroading" from some of the trails. He is a cheery individual and awesome company! The apartment itself is about a 20 min walk uphill from town, which for us was fine. We loved picking up basic groceries from La Coopertiva and using Giovanni's well-stocked kitchen to whip up an easy dinner. Overall, we had a great stay, made even better by Giovanni's wonderful hospitality. We'll be back another year for the winter season!
We had a very pleasant visit to Cortina and Giovanni's apartment was super clean, nice and very well equipped.Very comfortable bed, good shower, hairdryer and a very nice little kitchenette - and sun all day long on the balcony! Giovanni was very helpful, easy to reach, punctual and still flexible host. Definetily gonna call Giovanni if/when visiting Cortina again!
