my italian holiday - poira di civo I.

that morning the weather looked less menacing and my sister and I decided to go a little higher up the mountains: we left a thick layer of clouds below us and ended up in Poira di Civo - a tiny village of chalets where many childhood friends of ours used to spend their summers. at 1,077m above the sea level we had an impressive view of the snowy heights in front of us!

coming back to Poira di Civo after so many years I was impressed by the beautiful landscape we were able to admire up there. I have also found the village very fascinating because of its chalets: some of them were old and one of a kind. I especially loved that stone house in the third photograph with its green door and shutters: it was built in the 1930's and has not changed ever since.
P.S. I will dedicate one more post to Poira since I have taken many photographs there!
