Hi there! We had a GREAT time. Thanks! The home was lovely, the location couldn't be better, and the price was very reasonable. The directions were clear, although adding in directions from the train station would be great, too. And providing the wireless password would be helpful as well.
Thank you for your email. First of all, the property was beautiful, clean, cozy, spacious, and conveniently located. We really appreciated the quick responses to all of our inquiries. As far as activities we enjoyed - we rented a boat from a company in Varenna. It was a lot of fun and would highly recommend it. We also enjoyed the hike up to the castle and over to the waterfalls.
