We stayed in the 2 bedroom Piazza View Suite, with kitchen and from the moment we arrived, we were in awe of the hospitality of Stacy and the amazing views from the roof top terrace. We arrived from an overnight plane ride and train and immediately found comfort and relaxation in our suite at Casa Stacy.
The suite was furnished with fruit, yogurt, cereal,& milk, plus a well stocked "bar' with refreshments was available on the top floor, near the roof terrace. Casa Stacy is basically new interior, new baths , kitchen and comfortable furnishings, new appliances, dishes,and a great coffee maker in an old building on a quaint square in Varenna. When you get to the roof terrace, for breakfast, cocktails or private time reading, you don't want to leave. Your view is 360 degrees . I loved watching the ferries, and small boats while hearing the local church bells and the stirrings of the local residents.The location is good for touring Lake Como, getting the train, restaurants , sightseeing in the area and just hanging out. The best feature of Casa Stacy is Stacy. Stacy invited all the guests to take a private tour of Lake Como at sunset, serving us prosecco with a backdrop of mountains, palaces and the most gorgeous of scenery.( there's no pressure to take the boat trip, but I would recommend it).
Stacy knows the people, the language, restaurants, and the history. She has a library of travel books, novels, brochures/maps, and free internet. Stacy is a great resource and a lovely person.
As other reviews have noted, Casa Stacy is located above a Bar that serves coffee in the a.m.and drinks throughout the day and night. It wasn't a problem for us, but Stacy provides ear plugs . We wished we didn't have to leave . It was a beautiful experience, a delightful hotel and the most memorable part of our trip to Italy. Thanks Stacy!
