Stayed here on the 10th August 2012 as part of a driving trip towards camaiore with the family, seven of us in total. It turned out to be a great location and just like the website images and description. Laura is a wonderful host and was attentive to our needs, very clean, stylish and comfortable with private parking which was a bonus. Air conditioning is available in each room which also has its own bathroom and Tv. Breakfast was provided and served by Laura which proved a filling start to the day with five children. We even managed a day trip to Milan centre (Duomo and San siro) which can be reached from the local train station every half hour. Vanzago itself does not have a lot going on but does have a delicious ice cream parlour as its highlight. In summary, ideal for a base for a few days exploring or overnight stop & welcoming.
