We had a wonderful 3 night stay in Lake Como at Casa Stacy. This is a great place to stay (well appointed rooms, beautiful views, quaint little town), but Stacy's attention and service is incomparable. We stayed at 2 other places in other parts of Italy during this vacation and kept saying how much we missed Stacy. She went out of her way to help us with restaurant reservations, sunset cruise, got us much coveted tickets to a vivaldi concert at villa carlotta in tremezzo, and was always available and responsive. This is much more than just a place to stay. It is an experience thanks to Stacy's attentiveness and hospitality.
As I mentioned before, the rooms are great. We stayed in the Plaza View Suite (2 bedrooms, 1 bath). We were 3 adults and 3 kids and this suited us just fine. There is a pull out in the living room. Casa Stacy is located right in the main square of town and sits over a restaurant which as some have noted can be loud at times. We were there during the world cup so it was quite noisy at times. I brought some ear plugs based on the reviews I had read and that solved the problem. Stacy can also offered to provide ear plugs as there was a concert in the plaza one of the evenings. Honestly, it wasn't that loud and would not dissuade me from staying there in the future. The room has a coffee machine and small kitchen. Stacy provided us with some milk, yogurt, fruit, and granola which was great. There is also a common area upstairs that has an honor bar where you can enjoy some prosecco or other drinks. Arguably the best part of Casa Stacy (besides Stacy herself) is the 360 view from the terrace on the upper level. Breathtaking.
Also just a note about Varenna. This is a great place to stay in the Lake Como area. The ferry to Bellagio or other areas is close by and so quick and easy. It beats staying in the more expensive and crowded Bellagio.
Can't wait to return!! Stacy, we miss you!!!
