Customer Reviews

We had a tremendous time staying at Casa Emma. The views are spectacular and the house in general is awesome.
Enjoyed Most:
The views and the hospitality of the owner since he personally came to show us everything.
Enjoyed Least:
The kitchen lacked good lighting.
Surrounding Area:
Very close to the train station and it was a nice walk into town for groceries and wine tasting.
Nearby Events or Locales:
In Varenna but outside of that was Mellagio which is a short ferry ride across the lake.
Tips or Restaurants:
I would bring tea bags for iced tea, coffee filters and laundry detergent pods. The two small groceries in Varenna don't have these. All else can be found. We cooked rather than ate out unless we were going to be on a day trip.
Easy to get to.
Check In Out:
All was good.
