Marco and his family are quite literally the best hosts we have ever had on our travels. They constantly go out of the way to make you feel welcome, comfortable, and taken care of. We were greeted with a ride from the train station, a bottle of champagne, baked goods and snacks. We then received treats throughout the trip that were incredible and delicious.
Any questions we had were quickly answered by Marco’s son who speaks very good English (our Italian was rusty at best). They always had recommendations and were interested in the activities we were doing.
They also helped us with the practical things on a moments notice. Marco offered to take us to the large supermarket so that we would have all we needed. He promptly provided new linens when we had new guests arrive. Most importantly, they gave us everything we needed for our daughter - toys, a crib, and even some furry friends (3 cats are on the property) to play with.
The property itself does not disappoint. It is spacious, clean, and has all the amenities you could need. We used the barbecue and sat in the garden overlooking the lake. It was perfect.
The small touches were also amazing - fresh herbs in the kitchen and the fresh flowers in the garden were a pleasant surprise.
The location was extremely walkable. There is a path to the greenway accessible directly from the house that will take you into Fiumelatte’s town center. From there it is a short walk into Varenna. We walked it every day which was absolutely perfect given the setting.
Overall, don’t hesitate to book this accommodation. You will not regret it!
We will be back Marco!
