Thank you very much for the wine, milk and biscuits - it was very much appreciated.
We have had a wonderful stay in Varenna in this lovely apartment. It is such a beautiful area. We have had some wonderful walks - the Tourist Information Offices in Varenna and Menaggio have been very helpful.
We hope to come again.
Thank you. Grazie.
John and June Cadogan
We were very pleased with the apartment which was spacious for 3 people and very convenient for us re the ferry and strolling around pretty Varenna. Thank you for the bottle of prosecco and the pastries - that was a very nice touch, enjoyed by us all.
We found the key box perfectly easily but I might have struggled with getting the key out and the locks on my own, my brother did all that.
We particularly liked Il Molo restaurant and went there twice on the Sunday, a lovely meal for 10 of us in the evening, a good atmosphere and friendly staff.
My niece was married at Villa Carlotta, a lovely place - so lucky with the weather as it was a lovely day on the Saturday, poured all Sunday - you must find a way to organise the weather - ha ha!
I enjoyed visiting Menaggio and especially Bellagio - such nice shops there where I bought a few gifts.
We loved the apartment and it’s location. We would stay there again. I liked that it was accessible by car; although we did park for a price at the train station. Also liked that it was close to the Lido and the ferry. We enjoyed the walk into the town proper (8 minutes).
We enjoyed the strenuous hike up to the caste and then down the billy goat trail to flumelatte. we also very much enjoyed the botanical gardens at the monastery (although we did not go into the building). We found several good places to eat and will come back in 5 years.
I had a great time in the apartment Varenna Imbarcadero. It was close to everything. Just a 5 minute walk to the old part of town. There are a few small shops that carry the main essentials if you are cooking at home, otherwise a quick trip over to Managgio by ferry and a supermarket just up the road.
Heaps of restaurants near by all with magnificent views.
Every morning I awoke to the view across the lake looking at the mountains and Managgio, a lovely way to start the day.
My only concern is that there is no one to meet you at the apartment to fill you in on where is the gas main for the stove top, how to open the sofa bed (not all the same ) and the Wi fi connection, password etc.
I did find a blue folder with information on how to work the TV, etc but nothing to turn on the gas main or even where it was and no information for the wi fi
I feel if I had had this on arrival I would not have had the angst for that one night .
I have been traveling for 7 weeks across Europe and all the other apartments someone was there to welcome you to the apartment.
