About the neighbourhood
The apartment enjoys unspoilt panoramic views and close to the picturesque resort towns of Varenna and Bellano from which there are regular ferry services to the 'golden triangle' of Menaggio and Bellaggio. Milan is easily reached by train. The nearest bar/restaurant and fresh bakery is just 15 minutes walk/5 minutes drive. Guests can enjoy cycling, hiking in the mountains above the apartment, swimming, sailing kayaking and other water sports on the lake. The ski resort of Chiesa in Valmalenco is easily reached just an hour by car or train and rises to 3,000 metres giving good snow cover up until April. There are a great selection of slopes for all levels as well as panoramic views, ski hire shops and an excellent ski school.
Getting around
Dorio has a railway station which is about a 15 minute walk down the hill from the apartment. There are also regular bus services along the lakeside road. Passenger ferries depart from Dervio or Bellano to other towns on the lake and they are about 10 minutes away by car. A car ferry departs from Varenna which is about 15 minutes by car.
