While I have stayed at LaFonte a number of times, my favorite is in the apartment Olivio. The views are beautiful and peaceful. The apartment is very well appropriated and comfortable.

I would like to point out that it is clearly stated on the Tripadvisor description that there is not central heating at La Fonte - we do provide electric heaters if required. Summer temperatures cannot be expected...
