Our three night stay in Varenna was one of the best trips we've taken in recent memory. Varenna is the ideal base location for visiting Lake Como since it has railroad connections to Milano and is located at the middle of the lake, just across from Bellagio. You get all the perks of staying in an exclusive secluded enclave, but with quick efficient transport and reasonable prices. Varenna itself was our favorite town on Lake Como: very intimate and charming with cobbled lanes down to the lake and very friendly people. Staying at Casa Stacy helped to make the experience even more memorable since the accommodations were so comfortable. We stayed in the "Angel Apartment" which we had all to ourselves. This apartment has two large ensuite bedrooms which share a common kitchen and living area. There's even a terrace with a view of the lake! Stacy was very warm and helpful, suggesting several restaurants for dinner and helped to make reservations for us in advance. She even arranged a lake cruise at sunset which was one of the highlights of our stay. We'd recommend taking the ferry all the way to Como to see the marvelous villas and gardens along the way. We'll be back!
