The apartment was great for our stay. The owner picked us up from the train station and drove us to the apartment. She provided us with some goodies of cookies, sparkling water and an orange drink. The apartment was roomy and offered an amazing view. The only draw back was that we did not have a car and the apartment is up a steep hill. There is a walking trail that will take you into Varenna but it is damp and slick. We made our way down very slowly and while holding onto the wall but took a cab (10 euros) when we returned in the evening. Other than it not being convenient to town and the steep climb up and down I enjoyed staying here. If you have a car then it would not be a issue.
