    The views are absolutely breath taking. And the house is very, very comfortable. Although the weather was cold when we were there (Feb/Mar) the house was always comfortable. It's easy to find and excellent parking. Varenna is a jewel of a town with wonderful restaurants and easy to access ferry that will take you across the lake. The train station is there to get you to Milan or St Moritz or any other place in Europe. The owners were amazing hosts. They greeted us with wine and snacks and brought homemade treats during our six day stay. Their English speaking son came and briefed us on the house and area and was very accessible by email. He was available to help with issues in the house if needed (there were none), restaurants, ferries, and even told us how to pay the road toll from Milan. Comfy beds too. The only thing we had a problem with, if you could call it a problem, is that their were no paper coffee filters for the American style coffee maker. The large grocery store nearby does not sell them. We were surprised they even had such a coffee maker but the kitchen is extremely well supplied. We made filters with paper towels but Americans might want to bring your own filters. There are Italian coffee makers too so you won't be without but if your preference is American style then be advised that paper coffee filters are rare in Italy. The owners provided enough coffee for three people for six days. There were also basics like salt, pepper and a few spices. The small refrigerator was adequate and had a good size freezer. If you must have ice cubes you might want to throw in an ice tray in your luggage along with the coffee filters. As I said earlier, the views are simply marvelous. We cooked on the grill and enjoyed the beautifully landscaped patio and gardens on the mild days. We had wonderful, sunny weather and though cold, not uncomfortably so especially for being in the mountains. It was colder in Houston. Having a washing machine was a plus. No dryer but things dried quickly on the rack they provided. We absolutely loved the place and sure you will too.

    We stayed for two nights and had a wonderful time! There were 6 of us and tons of room. Beautiful location and even has a wonderful restaurant within a 50 meter walk. Highly recommendable!
