The Rifugio Questa is nested above the Portette Lake, one of the three glacial lakes which are part of the Valscura Lakes. These sit on a "balcony" overlooking the Valasco flats where the ancient Royal Hunting Lodge has now recently been converted into the Rifugio del Valasco (bar, food and rooms). Gorgeous views, among others, over the Matto and Argentera peaks.Show more
