his rifugio is located in a tiny, historic village at the top of be mountain. It's a quick wall away from the rocca forte. The main reception has a two level restaurant with awesome views of the surrounding mountains. The room was cozy and the bed was super comfortable. Quite a relaxing place to stay. Most notable about our stay was the hospitality and information that Paulo provided. He shared maps, books, and recommended hiking routes that were extremely helpful during our visit. Thanks for everything Paolo!
