As my title says, we all loved Casa Stacy!
Varenna.......Would have to be one of the most beautiful places we have ever visited, and our staying at Casa Stacy helped make our time in Varenna unforgettable.....
Unfortunately, we only had the one day and night to spend here, but we will be back. Stacy herself is great to deal with. From our first email enquiry 6 months ago, to meeting up with her to take us to her apartment, she was a pleasure to deal with.
And if Stacy offers you the chance to go on a Sunset cruise including a fish dinner.....grab it with both hands! It was the best 25Euros (for the cruise) we have spent in a long time. The meal at the restaurant (which was an extra cost depending on what you order) was delicious and also the best value meal we have had in the 3 months of travelling Europe so far. Stacy arranged an amazing table for the four of us. We all had the best time, and that's including our 19 year old Son and Girlfriend who had the time of their lives :)
We stayed in the apartment set apart from the other rooms down the hill a little bit, and it was just lovely. We personally loved the decor, and the bed and pillows were devine! There were little glimpes of the lake from the apartment, but you had access to a separate outside terrace with incredible romantic views of the lake. Our apartment was quiet except for loud people walking past from time to time, but that is to be expected when staying in a traditional Italian town bang in the middle of the cobblestone street areas :)
The only negative for us was no WiFi in the apartment, and we had to go to a surrounding cafe or restaurant to use the internet which wasn't that big a deal for one night, but it would have been if we had stayed any longer as my Husband needs access to the internet for business dealings at home.
All in all though, we would not hesitate to stay with Stacy again. Not only is her accommodation wonderful, she herself is an amazing host and you will certainly receive a more personal touch from her than you would from any run of the mill hotel :)
