We only stayed at Casa Stacy three nights and if it wasn't for forward plans, would have easily doubled our stay in Varenna. Stacy met us when we arrived from the train station and we immediately felt at home. After a tour of the apartment, she made us a booking at a local highly rated restaurant (Borgavino) which was a godsend as people were wandering in between 7 and 10 desperate for a booking.
Stacy also arranges dinners and we had a great time with a couple from the USA out on a private launch with all the sites pointed out for us on the way. Stacy captained the launch back to Varenna and showed her speed-demon side!
We spent four weeks traveling around northern Italy, Paris and London and still think of the 3 nights staying at Casa Stacy as the highlight of the entire trip.
