Pozzuolo house description

The house is very spacious and has a large bedroom with a double and a single bed together with its own en-suite. There is also a double bedroom and a house bathroom. On the ground floor is a large dining kitchen with a wood burning stove, gas hob and fridge. Through the archway is a lounge with a wood burning fire. The house is built of local stone and has a wooden veranda, typical of the houses in the area. There is a large terrace where meals can be taken and there is a picnic area in the meadow at the side of the house. On the terrace is a pizza oven and barbecue. There is adequate parking at the property for three or four cars. TV, DVD, radio, CD/ cassette player and games are at your disposal. Wood and linen are provided.

In August there is also a car rally. There is a tourist office down in the village of Forgaria for all information. There is plenty of wild life in the area, perfect for birdwatching. The lake of Cornino is in a nature reserve protecting the Griffin. Lots of different species of butterflies, birds including eagles. Deer can be seen in our meadow. The region has an abundance of museums, archaeological sites and castles.

Amenities: There is a bar/restaurant on Monte Prat about 200 metres from the house where one can sample the local cuisine.

Udine is the capital of the province whose once Venetian dominance is evident in the architecture. To the North is the walled village of Venzone totally razed to the ground by the earthquake of 1976 and Bordano where you can visit the House of the Butterflies, one of the largest in Europe. Visit the Val Resia whose people has origins dating back to the 7th century when some Polish nomads wandered into the valley and settled. They still retain ancient customs no longer practised in Poland. To the south of Forgaria lies Spilimbergo whose Mosaic School is one of the finest in Europe, guided tours are available, prebooking is necessary. Preone near Tolmezzo in the Carnia boasts the oldest dinosaur fossils found in the world, which can be found in the local museum. To the south the beaches of Sabbiadoro and Grado. Nearby Griffin Sanctuary.
