The apartment was fine. It was clean and well maintained. The shower was very interesting with a rock face wall, good water pressure and plenty of hot water. Bath was good too. We did not stay at the apartment during the day as we did not have a car to go to and from readily. We hiked each morning down to Varenna to breakfast and sightsee. The hike up the hill is very demanding and steep. The path is very old and beautiful, but as it is paved with cobbestones and because its steepness, I would highly recommend wearing shoes with some tread on them. I actually purchased a pair of hiking sandals to make the trek each day. It took us about 25 minutes to hike up with about 3 stops to rest on the way up. Alternatively, you can drive. If you don't plan to rent a car and are not reasonably fit, this is not a good idea for you. There are taxis, but they are not numerous.
