  • The road that leads to the Lake of Derborence is long and narrow, but the place is really worth the trip: a beautiful Lake in a circus of impressive mountains, completely out of the world.

  • Place away from the time, which can be reached by a steep road. Starting point of many hiking trails. Beautiful Lake, trees and mountains superb!

  • After a little busy and single-lane road "almost", one gets to a valley of tales. It is a quiet and little frequented place to enjoy setting.
