Thick forest, pastures surrounded by shepherd’s huts (malghe) and alpine lakes. This is Sauris and much more: it’s a mountain village in Friuli-Venezia Giulia, it’s surrounded by the Dolomite summits and its soul shows out with three faces: Sauris di Sotto, the lower district, Sauris di Sopra, the upper district and Lateis. You are in the heart of Carnia, nature lies steadily and lake Sauris and its emerald green and the turquoise red colours welcome the visitors who reach this corner of heaven. In Winter you can do alpine skiing, cross-country skiing and ice-skating, you can have a ride on a snowmobile, you can attend sled-dog classes or go on a very romantic ride on a sleigh pulled by horses surrounded by amazing snowy landscapes. In Summer you can walk along the paths, you can ride your mountain-bike or go horse-riding in the woods along the lake’s banks, you can go canoeing, play tennis, basket or go horse-riding in the open air in the equipped sports centre, the “Village of sports and well-being” equipped with a wellness centre, the sauna, the pools surrounded by the green between Sauris di Sopra and Sauris di Sotto. Art, culture, food and wine are added values too: actually Sauris is a village rich of history and traditions and it is also a landmark of good food where you can taste wonderful local products.
