Guestbook comments from the owner
The landscape in this part of Norteast Italy is quite unexpected, in that one drives through flat farmland with highly populous towns and villages until quite suddenly one arrives at the Alps. Go up just a few hair-pin climbs, through a couple of long tunnels and come out the other end into a totally different world to the one you left behind.
Barcis hangs off the side of the mountain and looks quite small and sleepy when you drive in first, but by the end of our week long stay, we realised that this is a vibrant community with all necessary amenities laid on. Indeed by the end of the week we asked ourselves, did we need to bother renting a car at all, as the Bella Vista accommodation also had everything one would require for a weeks relaxation . being virtually in the village meant that you could run to the shop anytime you wanted for fresh bread, milk or perhaps another bottle of local wine.
We were delighted with having access to the two new bicycles which we used most days. Although there was four or five good restaurants within easy walking distance, we also lit the bar-be-que a couple of times.
Views of the green/blue lake were the dominant feature. We figured that perhaps the colour comes from the copper deposits to be found in the alps. This is a very beautiful walk/cycle around the lake and where the river flows out of the Hydro electric dam, it is akin to a mini grand canyon where the river has eaten into the rock over million s of years. For the more adventurous outdoor types there are numerous caves to be explored.
Yes, Barcis and Bella Vista is somewhere we would definitely consider re-visiting.
