We loved our stay in Italy. It was so beautiful. It was a lovely complex and the pool was a huge plus for our family. The views from the pool are breathtaking and the towns of Varenna, Bellano, etc were so charming.
We rented a boat from Danilo which was a huge highlight for us. It was perfect. In hindsight, we would rent from the Varenna side to avoid ferry fee to Menaggio which we thought was pretty steep.
All to together, our family fell in love with the area and hope to return one day.
The property was easy to find and the instructions were simple and clear. Great location with a great view, very nice apartment. A great vacation and a great way to organize a vacation.
We had a wonderful holiday in Varenna, thankyou, and all your information and the property was very good. We enjoyed the daily walk to/from the village - for your information it was 17minutes down and 21 minutes back up, good exercise and no problem at night time - just need sensible shoes! We were glad we used the train from Bergamo and didn't want a car. the views are absolutely stunning from Vista D'Oro, I never tired of it. the pool was lovely and a very peaceful atmosphere. bliss!
We loved our holiday at the Vista D'Oro and would like to thank your staff for everything they did from creating a wonderful web site which gave us plenty of information and the numerous emails regarding payments and arrival information. It was also great to have someone greet us on the Sunday and answer our questions and make suggestions with respect to things to do and see in the surrounding area. We have rented apartments in other countries and they pretty much leave you the keys and you are on your own.
We were one of the few who had no car for two weeks while at Vista D'Oro but I can tell you that I am in much better shape than I was three weeks ago. When we arrived at the train station in Varenna, Vista D'Oro was clearly visible and the cab driver was very kind to point out how we could make our way up and down the mountain on foot after she dropped us off. The first couple of times allowed me to discover some muscles I never knew existed. But by the third or fourth day, it was good. I have informed my family and friends that they no longer need to spend money on diets and boot camps but should instead spend their money to go to Italy and stay at Vista D'Oro. They will be in shape in no time at all.
The apartment had a lovely view of the lake and fabulous sunsets every night. The breezes that blew through in the evening kept us nice and cool and several nights we didn't even need the fan. The pool was a pleasure to have particularly after our 15 minute climb from Varenna. A nice dip before we settled in to a few glasses of wine while we prepared dinner which we then enjoyed on our balcony as the sun set.
We loved that we had easy access to the trains and the ferries. We set off on a new adventure everyday. We took the train to Milan for the day, we went to Florence for two days, we took it to Tirano where we then got the Bernina express to St. Moritz. We took the boat to Como, where we then took a train and then another train to Mt Generoso. We shopped in Como, Bellagio, Menaggio, Tremezzo, and Varrena. We walked to the Fiumelate, Vezio, Perledo and higher. We will have to come back some day as there is still a lot to see and do!
Thanks again for all of the work by your team to make this a very memorable holiday.
