Our RIFUGIO FRIULANO is a basic wooden house in the hills above Tarcento nearby Udine.

The house was designed by the well-known architect Alessandro Ronco – built in 2012.

The Rifugio is a place, to find back to oneself.

Since 2023 there is WLAN in our house. Though it can be switched off easily; so that every guest can decide himself, whether to use it – at least for certain circumstances – or to enjoy digital detox during the stay.

There aren’t further electronic devices – such as TV or radio – in our house.
Even mobile phones may not work very well without switching on WLAN.
