Just wonderful. Beautiful flowers. Easily accessible by motorbike and by car. Recommended for pick nick families. There are also very good places to eat around. I'll be back
A nice relaxing and invigorating walk
Champlas janvier, a small village with a few houses, made of stone, some renovated. Here everything and everyone are free: dogs and cows included. The very hospitable inhabitants of San Carlo organize a country party to entertain local children and tourists. The sack race, relay race, tug-of-war and the pot. With a lot of mayors for the awards ... cups, medals, caps and other gadgets for everyone. A small church, that of San Carlo very old (I think of 1100d.c) internally and totally covered in wood. Very beautiful. And all day long, starting in the late morning, all gofri x, seasoned with sweet or savory; soft drinks, beer. With a small offer at discretion. Already in the morning entertainment with the guys from the ludobus and their wooden games suitable from 0 to 99 years. Beautiful day.
Rustic, very green and pleasant environment.
