My husband and I recently traveled to this lovely Agriturismo in Lake Como, Italy with my mother (who was visiting from the States) and our two small dogs. We stayed in Casa Milena, a beautiful two bedroom, one bath cottage overlooking the lake. The house is tucked away from the rest of the grounds and offers peace and quiet. The views from all of the rooms are beautiful and each bedroom has a small terrace with chairs. There was a bit of snow on the ground the first day we arrived, and the management took our luggage down the steep path to the house by golf cart. The house is clean, comfortable, and has a fully appointed kitchen, with plenty of cookware and utensils. The fridge is spacious and management even provided milk, bread, jam, and butter for our stay! There are laundry facilities in the house for those with long stays. The olive trees around the grounds are gorgeous, and there is opportunity to purchase some of their delicious homemade olive oil. There are walking paths down to the town of Varenna (we didn't go the entire way due to snow/rain) and plenty of space for dogs to run and play. We were provided with firewood and kept a fire roaring throughout the duration of our stay to keep the cottage warm and cozy. We spent the majority of the trip relaxing by the fire, but did venture down to Varenna (10-12 min drive). During the winter months the town and surrounding area is very quiet. My husband and I would like to return during the summer months to tour the nearby castle (Castello di Vezio) and swim in the pool (both of which you can't do during the winter!). The Agriturismo is located up a hill and is accessed by a winding, mountain road. It is paved but very narrow (not good for large vehicles). We were glad to have arrived before the sun set, as it is more difficult to maneuver at night. We also had a personal vehicle, which made getting around easier. In closing, wonderful stay and hope to return.
