  • We were in the middle of winter on this beautiful artificial lake, which surrounds the beautiful villages of Barrea and Villetta Barrea. The banks we have been fortunate to see two beautiful deer. Impressive is also the point where the Lake and the river Sangro. In short, an awesome place, as is the whole area of Naizionale Park of Abruzzo.
