Do places of genuine beauty and simple tranquility,
where one can truly feel the sweetness of a healthy lifesytle,
exist? Yes, if one finds his way to the graceful village of
Collina, jewell of the alps of Carnia, discreetly famous for:
- Itís alpine tours. Several mountain shelters (ďRifugiĒ)
offer short term accommodation and respite for the mountain
traveller. These permit you to explore the marked tracks on
foot up to Lake Volaia at 1970 mt on the Austrian border,
or to the peak of the highest mountain in Friuli-Venezia-Giulia,
Mount Coglians which at 2780 mt, imposes its elegant gerey
streak with dominance upon the village below.
- Itís Mulgas where are produced on site delicious
and unique specialities and cheeses of the region for you
to sample or buy.
- Itís romantic walks. Amongst the tracks and forest
closeby, the sounds of a pure and clear stream of natural
mineral water, creating the perfect backdrop for your stay
at Hotel Volaia. An exceptional family atmosphere with modern
conveniences yet traditional homestyle cooking particular
to the region offered in a warm welcoming manner. Here, the
young. the not so young, couples, singles, sporting teams
and those looking for a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere,
will find satisfaction guaranteed.
