Varenna is one of the towns around Lake Como and away from the hustle and bustle of the busier towns like Bellagio, Como or Menaggio. Varenna is compact and beautiful, you could walk to everywhere!
We stayed at the Casa del Prato (which is within a 3-storey apartment) which is about 3mins walk from the main Casa Stacy. It is a 1-bedroom apartment, has a full kitchenette (there is a great family-owned store nearby), washing machine (bring along your own detergent or buy some from the store), dining table, living room area and access to an outdoor terrace which has a fantastic view of the lake and mountains. It is a really spacious and cosy apartment.
The host, Stacy, is wonderful and will give you suggestions on activities in Varenna for a memorable stay. We took up the cooking class with Chef Moreno which you can book through Stacy and that was great :)
It is not a hotel, so don't expect housekeeping or buffet/served breakfast. Stacy will supply breakfast(yogurt,muesli, coffee, milk, fruits) for the duration of your stay when you arrive and if you want more, you could let her know or buy some from the shop.
From Casa del Prato in Varenna, you could easily walk to the ferry station to go around to the other towns. Varenna has wonderful restaurants and cafe too but it is not crowded as compared to the other towns.
Stay with Casa Stacy in Varenna, you will love the tranquility and beautiful apartment. You may not want to go home :)
