Albergo Belvedere – Passo dei Carpinelli (LU)

Pleasant family-run property located in panoramic area at Passo dei Carpinelli, 840 meters above sea level. The Passo connects the Garfagnana with Lunigiana, which in turn is an open door  to Liguria and the beautiful Cinque Terre.

Accommodations

The spacious and modern rooms come with  telephone, satellite TV, WiFi internet and facilities. Some rooms have balconies.

Restaurant

Authentic flagship of the structure is the excellent restaurant, which offers the true cuisine of the territory, with the delicate but decided flavors  of a valley that, like every border land, has ended up creating its own gastronomic tradition. Traditional garfagnina cuisine is a frugal, simple, sometimes poor food because few were the basic ingredients: farro, formenton flour, chestnut, red beans, trout, fruit of the forest; but the fanciful originality of the masses allowed and still allows those who have made use of these ancient recipes, the creation of extraordinary dishes such as Farro’s Soup, Farro or Ravioli with Porcini Mushrooms, Grilled Lamb and Baked veal thigh, farro cake, berries pies.

Activities and Services

Two panoramic pools, one for adults and the other for children, are part of the hotel complex, surrounded by a solarium equipped with sun loungers and umbrellas. There is also a park with children’s playgrounds and relaxation areas, a tennis court and a soccer field.
