For me a summer holiday in an Agriturismo is something you should at least once do. You have a nice and clean lodging, with great breakfasts. Most agriturismo residences provide local produce that tastes amazing. This agriturismo produces meat and milk. Located 1.2 miles from the centre of Cortina, with the public bus stopping 50 yards from the property. Amazing mountain views around.
