  • Different views, see it in the summer by a different suggestion. So many people; beautiful promenade surrounding great Lake. Magnificent village overlooking this beautiful Lake. Recommended

  • Beautiful landscaping ... A lake with mountains that delineate and many trees on the shore that shade where is comfortable and relaxing stay for the whole day ... There is a bar at the main entrance where you can replenish water and food!

  • Lovely place. In a hairpin where you can stop by car, going down you have a view of the Lake and the mountains that tower above. Beautiful place

  • Beautiful artificial lake South of Abruzzo from where you can enjoy the spectacular view of the mountain resorts of Villetta Barrea, Alfedena and Barrea. Saw record heat, temperatures up there was more than 30 degrees and that allowed me to do a surprise en altura!

  • I recommend everyone to not go on 15 August or weekdays alike. It's a nice place to enjoy in solitude and with a nice camera, without the noises of the strand that's there
