Casa Stacy is a beautiful, warm and magical house in the heart of the town. We were welcomed by Giorgio who is truly funny and nice. We explained us about the best places to eat and to visit. We also met the sweet Sonia who was so nice to us specially vegan products for breakfast. It was just a magical and beautiful place (and very clean!) And we recommend it with no hesitation!
We loved our stay here. Sonia met us at the apartment and let us in. She explained where everything was and gave us some tips on Lake Como. The apartment is so centrally located it’s wonderful and the views from the window are amazing. There isn’t a balcony but you can still see out well. The bed was large and comfy. Another bonus was the washing machine. Sonia even changed our towels after a couple of days. She also left us fruit, milk yoghurt, tea and coffee and there bathroom supplies as well.
After some initial confusion over the booking, Stacy was reassuring and welcoming. When we arrived in Italy during a rail strike, Sonia, our host, gave us helpful travel advice and met us when we arrived in Varenna. She kept us supplied with cereal, fruit and yoghurt during our stay. The prosecco and apricot tart she also provided were particularly welcome! We booked the whole villa for our visit. It was spacious and comfortable with air conditioning in the bedrooms and a sunny terrace. The villa is very close to the cafes and bars alongside Lake Como but is tucked away from the hustle and bustle. We had a wonderful stay - and even received a discount on the initial price of the villa. We hope to return to Chiave di Volta in the future.
What an experience! Stacy met us in the San Giorgio Plaza in Varenna. On our hectic traveling day, she recognized me and waved us down as we were passing her in our taxi. Stacy and her husband George helped us get our luggage into their home. George explained everything about the house’s amenities, location, and nearby restaurants. The recommended restaurants were fantastic, especially Osteria Quatro Pass. Both of them were amazing! They were so kind in leaving us fresh fruit, wine, two fruit tarts, granola, milk and a bottle of wine. One could not have asked for a better welcoming! The location of the home was perfect and central to everything in Varenna. The beds were very comfortable and each bedroom was quite large. The home was so calm and tranquil with a wonderful veranda with a view of Lake Cuomo. The evenings were so peaceful on the veranda! The home looked like it had been recently renovated. It was beautiful! A plus was being right next to an artist who connected with our family. What a cool experience! Overall, an amazing experience and home!…
We loved the location, the room, the house, and the view! Our stay was perfect and we were so lucky to have the place to ourselves. We had a view of the lake, though small, from our bed. Room and house were clean, and charming, bed comfortable and we would absolutely stay here again.
