I help people to discover Italy and I work in order to make their holiday to be as beautiful as possible.
Our stay in Fabio's apartment was great. The location was superb and the balcony made us feel like we had an extra room in our apartment. Everything was clean which was very important for us. Key exchange was easy both ways.
All in all I highly recommend this apartment!
What a magical visit!
Casa Mara is just as advertised--an updated, beautifully furnished and decorated apartment with views of Lake Como from the very comfortable and modern bathroom and kitchen. It has a narrow but wonderful balcony with a table and 2 chairs overlooking the lake and above an ancient walkway that ends just a few meters below at the lake in the old city.
The location is just steps away from the lake in the heart of the old city of Varenna, which has nice restaurants and shops; it is less touristy than Bellagio, and most of the old city is pedestrian-only. An inexpensive and quick ferry connects to Bellagio, Menaggio etc. There are a couple of small shops to buy food if you want too cook local fare and drink the terrific local wines. There are several beautiful trails with magnificent views up the sides of the hills and along the lake. The bed was comfortable (we only used one of the two bedrooms), and the closet space, well-furnished kitchen and dining/living room were perfect for us. The apartment would work well for a family of 4-5 or two couples. Fabio got back to us right away to confirm our reservation, and was so kind as to rearrange his schedule so as to meet us at the ferry in Varenna. All and all a perfect trip, the highlight of our vacation. The only downside is that if you want good internet access, wifi was unreliable when we were there, though that may have been a temporary problem. We highly recommend this wonderful apartment!
I could not receive Fabio and his friend personally but the online communication with them was good. Also, they left the apartment in an acceptable state.
I hope you had fun in Budapest!
