Casa Folga is 200 meters of altitude farther up than the town of Zortea, at the top of a 1500 foot private road accessible only by AWD vehicle, next to a mountain stream, Torrente Folga, in the beautiful and little visited Valle Del Vanoi, in the Trentino region. AWD vehicles can be rented at the Venice airport. If you don't have an AWD vehicle, you can park at the beginning of the road, and hike or snowshoe up, depending on the season. Zortea has a small supermarket, tobacco and newspaper store, two bars, a small hotel with a restaurant, and a shop that makes and sells organic goat cheese. There is a wonderful agriturismo restaurant, Agritur, in walking distance from our house, with great local food. Five or six miles further up the road is the magnificent Calaita Lake, the starting point of hundreds of trails, even as far as San Martino di Castrozza. There is a bar and restaurant also here at the lake.
