Cavria

Cavria View

My belovedCavria – Doss del Sabion, Madonna di Campiglio and the Dolomiti di Brenta in the view.

This is the view from Cavria, our beloved historical chalet at about 1500meters above Carisolo in the Parco Naturale Adamello Brenta in the Dolomites of Italy. My great great grand father and brothers built this chalet in 1890 as a place to take animals to summer pasture. In the 50 and 60s when many people emigrated across the world, places like this fell into disrepair. I’m proud to say that now Cavria has been restored to its former glory and then some – while maintaining the rustic dignity that makes such places special. My father has been rebuilding the place over the last 20 years and I’ve been proud contribute some small part.
