Stunning views, perfect property for our stay
This Villa truly offered the most stunning and beautiful views of the alps. The host was away on holiday but his son Giacomo took excellent care of us and answered any questions we had. We were met by a friend of the family when we arrived and in addition to the stunning views and beautiful property, we were greeted with a chilled bottle of prosecco and some snacks which we enjoyed sitting in the yard looking at the glorious view. The town of Varenna was perfect and offered everything we wanted. We had some delicious meals and took a beautiful hike. We drove to town during the day but definitely recommend taking a cab in at night (cost was 10 euros). We did walk the greenway one night to Varenna but it was definitely too long and hilly (and probably too dark) to walk back. The cab drivers knew our host and truly couldn't be any nicer. Make sure you take their cards with you when you go out as you will need to have someone call them for you. There was a little bakery down the street which we visited one day for breakfast. There was a restaurant there as well that had good reviews but we simply ran out of time to try it.
We wish we had more time here. Three days went by too fast! The hosts were wonderful and the apartment is very clean. We enjoyed the short walk to Varenna where you will find great resturants and shopping. I would definitely recommend this lovely get away to everyone and would love to come back someday. A+
Outstanding hospitality and spectacular views! Very comfortable home, ideal for families and friends
Wonderful property, location and family. The Mellero family were very friendly and gave us wine and some delicious tarts. The home is very comfortable and the views are spectacular. The beach is easily accessed from the home. We recommend this home to any travelers.
Beautiful view and yard, convenient access to beach, nice sun room, plenty of room
We had a misunderstanding (our fault) on what train station to go to and we bought tickets to Como which caused us to be late in arrival. We really appreciated the warm welcome with a bottle of chilled Prosecco and snacks and later a home baked cake. Kitchen and bathrooms were nice but would have appreciated soap bars and coffee, not a big deal. Parking is tricky due to the very narrow roads, and fast traffic. Also the motorcycle noise is crazy. But still it’s a nice place in a beautiful area and we enjoyed our stay. It was nice to have the son communicate in good English.
Thank you for your review.
We would like to report that the soap and the shower soap were present in our welcome kit in both bathrooms.
We thank you for your advice about coffee, even if we are not a B&B, we understand that can be a "plus" for short bookings. We'll consider that for next time!
wonderful views and sweet family
This apartment is comfortable and well equipped. The Mellara family is delightful and left treats for us. The views of the lake were so wonderful as well.
There is a unit air conditioner which is helpful, since you cannot leave the windows open at night or the traffic from the road below is too loud. We were very happy with our stay there.
