“Perfect spot to relax!”
Reviewed 22 July 2018 for a stay in July 2018

We had a wonderful time in this lovely house in Vercana. We found it the ideal spot to enjoy the views of beautiful lake Como but be just far enough away from all of the tourists by the lakeside. I would recommend it as being far preferable to staying close to the lake, and it is so easy to drive down to Domaso if you want to. Vercana is a lovely simple village but with everything you need, a little cafe bar, large (good) pizzeria and a couple of food shops. People are friendly and stop to say hello and don’t seem jaded by tourists. They also tolerated my attempts to communicate in Italian to them, which was greatly appreciated. Finally, the most important part of the review, Casa Farfalla is a wonderful house- a proper home. The balconies are a big contributor to its charm and the views really are as good as the pictures on the website. As this is a proper home it is very well kitted out; a fantastic kitchen with everything you need and more, to cook a full meal. Unlike many holiday lets, everything actually works!! Really good quality sun umbrella for the garden, excellent garden loungers and everything in the kitchen works too. I will miss our evenings with a glass of wine on the balcony! Many thanks to Mandy for being a wonderful host and always providing quick useful answers to every query.

“A delightful home with spectacular views over Lake Como”

person found this review helpful

Based in the hillside of Lake Como, this place provides a lovely authentic Italian experience with fantastic views of the lakes and surrounding mountains. Located in a quiet village with plenty of local amenities and very friendly locals.

Accommodation was very clean and well equipped, including a BBQ - perfect for dining outside in the garden and watching the sunset. The beds were very comfortable and the terrace was a great spot to unwind after a day of hiking and swimming in the lake.

Would highly recommend this lovely house.

“Great place to stay fab location for the lake with plenty to see and do.”
Reviewed 23 May 2018 for a stay in May 2018

What a fab place. Fantastic views of the lake from the terrace, which is a great place to sit with afternoon or evening drinks. You are right near the lake with plenty to see and do.
The accommodation is spot on with everything you need and very welcoming. You also have a garden to sit in and BBQ if you wish.
Prices for food and drink are very good - cheaper than home. Plenty of food shops nearby and places to eat or just grab a coffee. You also have a nice little wine shop with a great range of red/white or rose which are only about 3 euros a bottle and very nice.
You can walk or drive to various places. One trip I did was on the boat from Menaggio which stopped at Varenna on the far side. You just get off and then hop back on later to go onto Bellagio which is good for lunch a bit of shopping and sightseeing. You then hop back on to Menaggio. Boats run very frequently and prices were good.
If you stay local there is a lovely walk along part of the lake with a couple of restaurants or coffee stops along the way.
Everywhere is spotless which is rare to see these days.
You can also get a local train if you fancy going into Milan for the day. Train service is good and easy to get a seat.
Locals are all really friendly and very helpful.
Definitely worth a trip.

“Secret hideaway ”
Reviewed 5 September 2017 for a stay in August 2017

My friend and I just had a lovely stay at this beautiful Italian cottage in the hills above Lake Como where the views of the lake from the terrace were simply magic. The house is right in the heart of a classic old village where you feel completely immersed in the daily comings and goings of all the locals. We ate, drank, swam in the lake and explored all the beautiful villages. Casa Farfalla was perfect for us. We could park right in front of the house, the beds were comfy and it was modern and spacious without losing the quintessential quaint Italian cottage charm. We will be back!
