Extremely well equipped and comfortable apartment, fitted out to a high standard. Alfina is very welcoming and kindly collected us from the railway station. The fridge was very well stocked as was the food cupboard. Ideal location with short walks to the ferry and railway station. The apartment is spacious and spotlessly clean. The two shower rooms are very stylish and modern - though the shower cubicles are quite small and very tight for space - I am 6ft tall and 14 stone and just managed! The bed is very comfortable and you even have a choice of bedding - blankets and duvets in the wardrobe. There is ample storage for everything. The apartment is shaded and wonderfully cool in the afternoon when it is hot outside - a real treat. The garden area is also lovely and well equipped with garden furniture.
The overall impression is that Alfina has put a lot of effort into making the place welcoming for guests and to give them a great experience.
Guests do need to be aware that the apartment is on the lakeside road which is busy during the day but generally quiet at night. The bedroom is at the back of the property and is quiet but there is road noise from about 5am which may affect someone using the bed settee in the lounge. There is also a dog in another apartment which, if left out in the evenings, barks at length - one evening till 10pm, however it does not bark during the night.
These things aside, our stay was excellent and we can honestly recommend it. Please note they only take cash
The appartment is formaly addressed in Perledo but actually is highly closed to the center of Varenna, therefore we enjoyed both the conviniency of a short distance to Varenna and all of its sites and opportunities, and a private parking for our car (We did not use the train but its station is very nearby as well). The appartment is located on the first floor of a small appartment house. It is properly equipped, having washing machine, wi fi, and so on. The apartment is aesthetic, comfortable, and clean, and has a nice garden. We were not able to operate the TV and we do not know if it was due to lack of knoweledge on our side, or something was wrong with the channel selector. We did not bather to ask. The landlady lives next-door. She was exteremly kind and highly available to everything necessary. Although she does not know English (and we did not know Italian) we were able to establish some basic communication. The only disadvantage was that there was not a real landscape of the lake, as one would expect. We recommend this appartment and would like again to emphasize that its location on the border between Varenna and Persledo is a great advantage.
