  • A very quaint, the place where we stop often there and sort of kiosk. You can eat and take coffee the food is great the price average. There is possibility to rent sun loungers, good to relax and get some Sun. The bathroom we don't, but there are people who quietly do. There much green suitable for children.

  • It is an artificial lake obtained at the beginning of the last century by the damming of the river Sanprogresso 50. Lake overlook the town of Civitella Alfedena and Villetta Barrea. Beautiful and enchanting place where you can relax and make beautiful walks in the nature. Will definitely be returning. TO VISIT ABSOLUTELY!

  • 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

  • Recommend to visit the village of Barrea and admire the breathtaking scenery. In my opinion one of the most beautiful of Italy.
