Reviewed November 18, 2012

My wife and I recently stayed at Casa Stacy in Varenna and absolutely loved it! It was a wonderful place to stay and was in a perfect location – on the town piazza. Our room was like an apartment and very spacious. The views from our living room were fabulous – we could see Lake Como and surrounding mountains. Stacy was a very helpful and attentive hostess. She helped us with dinner reservations and whatever else we needed. We highly recommend Casa Stacy and would gladly return!! There is no question that on our next visit to Varenna, we will stay at Casa Stacy!

On our first night in Varenna, Stacy arranged for a boat tour around Lake Como with Mr. Luca of TaxiBoat Varenna. That was a fabulous experience and a great introduction to the lake – we can’t think of a better way to see the lake and be introduced to the area on our first night!! Mr. Luca was a wonderful guide and we were able to see many lake villas as we toured the lake. We also had a great lakeside view of Bellagio, Tremezzo, Lenno, Varenna and other villages on the lake. This tour was fabulous – everyone should do this on their first night on Lake Como!

A awesome choice in the main square of Varenna, Lake Como s best village....for a hotel on the lake you cannot beat the amenities, real coffee machines with the capsules, every possible thing you would need to make your stay a winner...I live in hotels AND rent apartments on the lake, but I can only be amazed at the attention to the details here...the view upstairs is epic and again with Stacy running the show in a style reminiscent of a RITZ CARLTON you almost find it hard to believe that she is not so;d out a year in advance...a spotless stay you will love every minute of...do not be fooled by other places in Varenna, these apartments are BRAND NEW, not the grandmothers attics you get for a few euros less from the clueless competitiom

We had an amazing stay at “The Taverna”, a property managed by Casa Stacy September 9th-13th. We truly cannot say enough about the wonderful experience we had. Varenna is the perfect location to explore Lake Como and its beauty. We stayed for over two weeks in Italy in various locations and Varenna was definitely our favorite part of the trip.

Our positive experience began several weeks before we came to Varenna through our e-mail interactions with Stacy. She responded very promptly to all of our e-mails and gave us great information. We felt very comfortable staying in Varenna even before we got there because she was so responsive and helpful. We knew we were in good hands.

We stayed for four nights in the Taverna which has been beautifully restored and is a great alternative to a hotel. The Taverna is one of the properties that Casa Stacy manages. Stone walls, antique furnishings and the perfect location make this a great place to stay!

We travel frequently and Stacy is truly one of the most amazing hosts we have ever encountered. She is a fascinating and knowledgeable person who is passionate about making her guests have an incredible experience. She was extremely accessible and willing to help in any area of our visit from laundry assistance to restaurant recommendations. For example, one night we wanted ravioli and she knew the perfect place to go and immediately got us reservations. She consistently went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and to make our stay very enjoyable. She has one of the only rooftop decks in town and the view is heavenly. She invited us up for “appertivi” and we enjoyed meeting fellow guests and the spectacular view.

Stacy helped us to book a wonderful private Lake Como boat tour before our arrival per our request. The boat tour was definitely a key highlight of our trip and was very reasonable in price. We booked the tour with Stacy through Luca’s Taxi Boat and he was amazing. He is very personable and provides a very informative and entertaining tour. He has a great sense of humor and is very in tune with his guests. We had wonderful appertivi on our boat ride and made a special stop for gelato and espresso on the only island in Lake Como. We will never forget that special day and would highly recommend his services.

Stacy also offered her assistance in getting us into Chef Moreno’s popular cooking class at Ristorante Il Caminetto. The class was full at the time we tried to book but Stacy put us on a waiting list and followed up to find out there was indeed a cancellation. Lucky for us! The cooking class was outstanding and we would highly recommend the experience.

It is rare to find this level of service in any country. Varenna is a fabulous place but our experience would not have been remotely the same without Stacy’s expertise. We can’t remember the last time we felt this totally relaxed. We truly feel that we have a new friend in Varenna and we will definitely be back to see her in the future. Stacy, you are the best and thank you so much!

We have some great photos and will come back and post when we get them organized!

Perhaps because of an immediate email response and her connection back to us as a former Michigander, Stacy gave us all the right impressions from the start.
Having been to Lake Como before and noting its beauty we were anxious to return. The town of Varenna is a is a charming locale, filled with great restaurants, shops and wine. Less trafficked but easily accessible to Bellagio where we previously stayed and Casa Stacy was our home with friends for 4 days. Stacy greeted us, shared her favorite places, made herself available instantly for any query, took us on a boat tour with her friend Luca to a marvelous restaurant for incredible lemon ravioli, and sent us to Mario for one of the best dinners ever the next night. She offered to get our laundry done, joined us on her rooftop overlooking all the magnificence of the region and generally made us totally at home. Even though her place is above a square and restaurant bar, if it was noisy she offered suggestions to make us comfortable-- which it surely was. We had an exceptional time here and intend a return. Bravo Casa Stacy!

Accommodating, knowledgeable, classy. Stacy was a fantastic host, her hospitality and luxurious property was an ideal way to end a three week road trip through Italy. A warm, stress-free arrival complete with delicious rooftop terrace aperitivo, a breathtaking sunset boat cruise on Lake Como, comfortable, immaculate accommodations, exemplary dining recommendations, the list is endless! Were it not for Stacy's orchestration and passion for hosting, our Varenna/Lake Como experience would have been much less enjoyable. Unfortunately we only had two nights in Casa Stacy (I would recommend and will be returning for at least a week!) but she really helped in maximizing, while not overextending, our short stay. For those considering staying with her, I can assure you that whether your ideal holiday includes luxury, superb meals, relaxation or excitement, this would surely be the best selection! Thank you Stacy for making my final days in Italy delightful, memorable and perfect in every way. I'll be seeing you soon. Aloha!

Wow! What an amazing place to stay! Stacy was so helpful from beginning to end and made the entire stay so special. When we arrived we went straight from our room to the rooftop balcony and enjoyed sparkling wine and olives and took in to the view of the lake. That evening we had a private tour of the lake with Stay's friend Luca which included MORE sparking wine and appetizers. Stacy assisted us in arranging a boat for us to take out on the lake ourselves, dinner at a beautiful hotel and where to get the best panin's for a picnic lunch. Be sure to do the sunset boat tour with Luca. It's a great way to see the lake and learn about its history and the homes nearby! The price was very reasonable. Plus, some of the most beautiful photos I took on my 14 day trip through Italy were on that evening boat ride. It truly doesn't get better than Lake Como and Stacy's place is in the perfect location!

My girlfriend and i really enjoyed our time in como at staceys place, from her welcoming aperitif on the rooftop, to her wonderful dinner and boat trip suggestions, she even helped out with my marriage proposal to my girlfriend,(which I did on her rooftop!) We stayed the river front room, plenty of space and lovely furnishings, the bed was extremely comfortable and the views were amazing. The noise from the cafe down stairs is really not bad at all (as per last review!). Her place is in a great location in the town centre, only 10min walk from the train station.Thank you Stacey for all your help! Rory and Mel x
