Great accommodation and base for walking
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!).
Hello Liz, thank you for your review and remarks! I checked the advertisment and removed the oven in the description of both Suite. I really don't know why I wrote it, sorry about this issue. About the toaster you are also right as it is actually a toasted sandwich maker. I bought it as I thought it was easier to clean and I did not consider its not the best choiche for breakfast. I hope to host you again! be well, Giovanni
Amazing location & place!
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!!
Perfect base for self-catering stay in Cortina
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!
amazing stay with great hospitality and welcome!
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.
Easy communication and wonderful hospitality!
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!
super clean apt & sun all day long on the balcony!
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!
