This is my great grandfather's house. There is a row of four houses that was once one big home. My house is on the end and it is full of family memories. This is not a place for people who want all the mod cons as I am slowly trying to restore it to it's orginal beauty but it is my home and hope you will love staying here. It has a large airy and light livingroom, a small kitchen and bathroom and then on the first floor a large bedroom and nice little balcony which is a lovely spot to take tea
On the ground floor there is an entrance hall, a large airy living dining room with fireplace a small kitchen and cantina and also a small bathroom. On the second floor, there is a large bedroom and a little balcony of the hall with a sweet view across the veggie garden and a glipse of the lake. It's a historical building, thought to date back to the Roman period originally but many changes (some terrible!) have been made over the years. The front door and balcony were added in the Baroque period. I am slowly restoring the house so it is by no means finished and there are parts (look at the hallway picture) that are a bit rough, so if you like perfectly finished places, it's probably not for you but if you like history and staying in a real Italian home, this will be perfect.
It's in Regolo, a small traditional village above Varenna which has many beautiful footpaths so it's perfect for walkers.
About a 10 minute walk away there is a shop that's open every day, 2 bars, one with spectacular lake views and a pharmacy.
I'd be more than happy to give you some tips on the local area so you can get the most from your holiday.
There is no WiFi in the property.
Let me know if you have any questions.
