Atmosfera da favola, a due passi dalla piazza di Ovindoli

  • 5 of 5

Una casa deliziosa, arredata con molto gusto, calda, al punto che trapela amore da ogni suo dettaglio. È la perfetta casa di montagna, con pavimenti in legno, un grande camino che la proprietaria ci ha fatto trovare acceso al nostro arrivo, insieme a festosi addobbi natalizi che hanno contribuito a rendere ancora più speciale l’atmosfera. Un rifugio perfetto per chi fugge dalla città!

Ottima posizione per andare sui campi da sci - a due passi dalla piazzetta dove si può fare la spesa, trovare una farmacia, un giornalaio, comprare dei regalini, prendersi una bella cioccolata calda nei pomeriggi freddi - la casa è molto carina ed è arredata in modo particolare con tutte le comodità ed un bellissimo camino - è calda ed i letti comodi - il parcheggio sotto casa senza nessun problema.

La proprietaria Alessandra è molto gentile e presente per qualsiasi necessità.

Sarà bello tornarci di nuovo non solo con la neve ma anche per fare delle passeggiate in estate.

Grazie Alessandra ...a presto

La casa ha tutto quello che serve, lavastoviglie, utensili per la cucina, lavatrice. C'è un bellissimo caminetto.

Bagno comodo (c'è dove appoggiare le cose proprio accanto al lavandino!)

Negozi (market, macelleria, farmacia, edicola, bar) sono raggiungibili a piedi.

A pochi passi dal centro storico e dai migliori ristoranti di Ovindoli (abbiamo provato quelli suggeriti dalla brochure di Alessandra e abbiamo mangiato benissimo).

A 10 minuti dalle piste. Nessun problema di parcheggio.

Alessandra è una splendida padrona di casa, disponibilissima.

Se torniamo a Ovindoli, chiameremo Alessandra!!
