We spent 5 nights in Francesca's lovely Varese apartment and we would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a place within walking distance to the train station and the centro storico. The apartment is impeccably clean, fully equipped, and although it sits on a main street, it is fitted out with double glazed windows to keep out any street noise. Francesca has seen to everything to ensure that you feel right at home. We have stayed in many different apartments throughout Italy, and this one stands out for its "ease of living" and caring hosts. We were met at the train station, shown around the apartment and given recommendations for places to eat and information about the area, and Francesca had even made sure we had all the makings for an aperitivo that evening waiting for us in the kitchen.
We would absolutely return!
