Tolles Haus in toller abgeschiedener Lage! Das Haus ist super ausgestattet und befindet sich in einem tadellosem Zustand. Der Pool ist riesig und hat den Kindern gut gefallen. Die Küche ist ebenso gut ausgestattet. Es hat an nichts gemangelt. Ab und zu fällt mal der Strom aus, aber es ist halt ein Haus mitten in den Bergen. Der Weg zum Haus ist holprig und lang. Man muss einige hundert Höhenmeter überwinden. Für tiefer gelegte Autos nicht geeignet, aber wenn man mal da ist, dann ist die Ruhe da und man ist alleine! Rundherum ist nahezu niemand!

It is a wonderful propperty, but you have to know it has a 3 mile drive in a very steep and small road inside The woods. So be prepared, because The first rife up is a surprise not listed in The web site.

We enjoyed our time at Col di Forche. it is a lovely property, but the place is definitely quirky. The lights frequently dim for no reason, you must turn off one set of lights in the kitchen if you use the oven or a fuse will blow, the TV is in the kitchen, where there is no comfortable seating. Not sure why it isn't in the living room. Although a Fireplace was listed in the dining room, we were not allowed to use it or any of the other fireplaces and it was very cold in the house. The heat, which we used sparingly because it was so expensive, did not really warm the place up. A fire would have been great. I think it's probably a good place to go in the summer but not in the spring. Don't recommend the place if you have a bad back as the road to it, while very picturesque, is very bumpy. And its about a 10 minute ride up that road. The villa itself is beautiful and, as I said, probably fine in the warmer months.

We had a wonderful time at Col Di Forche. We loved how isolated we felt on the hilltop, but it was only a 10 minutes to the little town to have dinner at a great restaurant that the property manager suggested. The house was great and the pool was lots of fun and relaxing after a morning of exploring. We had fun cooking dinner and eating on the patio. We were glad that there was air- conditioning in the bedroom because it was pretty warm in August when we were there. We can't say enough good things about our experience there.
