A very beautiful location in the Apennine mountains. A fantastic stop for photo opportunities at the base of the quaint Abruzzese town of Barrea.

It's small lake but the view from Brrea is fantastic. We were there at fall so it was to cold to jump to the lake. Brrea is very small town and I think it's better to take hotel in other place in the area.

In a sunny day we visited that place. In the shore you are able to find a good restaurant. One bridge cross over the lake. Good place for relax or swim or walking. The landscape also beautiful.

The peak of the driving trip along the Abruzzo National park is definitely the family picnic on the beach of Lago di Barrea. There is a lifeguard on the beach and you can rent a boat for a reasonable price and appreciate the surroundings of...More

We have tried many places around the lake. The first was on the northern side, a beach with sand, plenty of space, but in August too many people. In August we went on the other side, close to the Camping Colle Ciglio, where you can...More

We've visited in February so I could only take pictures, no swimming/kayaking etc. A beautiful wild place though!
