    Bad information about the difficulty and the time of ascension, count rather 1 hour and 45 minutes with non initiated to hiking. But it was worth the detour. Place view breathtaking and magical.

    Despite the bad information about the difficulty of the ascension and the duration of the latter we all enjoyed this easy walk. After a sports pass the reward... The Lake... A little chilly for swimming...

    Arriving from Sartène, so late (13.30 to Corte) we had hesitated between this trip and that runs along the Tavignano due the world announced in the Valley of Restonica. Option 1 selected, we had to cross the very narrow road all who were returning home after their tour: hot road! It blocks quickly based on the ease or not drivers in a hostile situation. Once up there (good 45 minutes later...), you go up on top of the car park (1 km after the "toll") and two super nice youth guide us until the place waiting for us. We attack the hike to 15.30 (we haven't had lunch!) exit so the idea of climbing the capitellu Lake... However, we loved this hike to the Lake of Melo, who has taken a little more than two hours breaks included with our children aged 8, 10 and 12, who are accustomed to walking, but not excessively. The sport announced way (once exceeded right melo hostel, 20 minutes approximately after the departure of the Inn of Grotelle) is especially great fun with its ladders and chains to get to walk on the tiles. He must put their hands up and down (in short we are never bored), the setting is beautiful, and the arrival to the beautiful Lake also. Returning a little wrong path and we ran a lot of cows before getting back on the trail! All this happened in very "secure" mode because there are no gullies between trails. Starting too late, we see mostly people coming down, and therefore, it does not necessarily feel the side of mountain boulevard (places are also to be ignored in any way). This beautiful walk that already makes us beautiful memories with your family worth the rough road!

    Beautiful green Lake in the beautiful Val Restonica. An hour of ascent, moderately challenging, with a couple of steps and a breathtaking spectacle on arrival. From the narrow road you will arrive at a parking lot (€6 necessary because the machines do not clog badly) and a bergerie, where you can buy yummy goat cheese made on site. Another hour's walk (more challenging) from Lake Melo lies Lake Capitellum, even more beautiful because nestled in steep mountains.

    Worth a stroll. An hour of walk to reach it. So much chaos in August. And well get on before nine in the morning. Recommend appropriate shoes for the mountains. Training minimum in order not to make the unpleasant day.

    Beautiful mountain lake, where you can also swim in warmer temperatures. In the summer months, the visit is not recommended, as hundreds of tourists to the Lake hinauf pilgrimage. For the ascent of the mountain. 50 minutes took de Grotelle. €6 have to be paid for the access to the parking lot there.
