Interaction with guests
We have contacts with a local company who can arrange guided alpine walks, dinner out or a very special treat. Please feel free to ask. There is also a comprehensive information booklet waiting for you at Casa Farfalla for your perusal. Although there is no wifi at the house there are plenty of cafes where it can be accessed. I also believe some of the European contracts now allow 'roaming' anywhere in Europe or if visiting from the UK you can purchase from Vodafone a wifi fob. Or put your phone down and enjoy the views/sights!

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...More

About the neighbourhood
Domaso is the lake side town overlooked by Vercana. Due to its position over a long and flat plain, this old fishing village offers views over a vast area of Lake Como.The location and climate is perfect for tourists; it never gets uncomfortably hot in the height of the summer and is very mild during the winter months. The “Breva” wind which blows from the south makes it perfect for the schools of windsurfing, water-skiing, kite-surfing, sailing and canoeing, there is an abundance of locations around the lake where you can also hire equipment. In addition to traditional water sports close by there are tennis courts and football grounds, gyms and fitness centres. At just 10km from Domaso there is a horse-riding club.The main characteristics of Vercana are its peace and quiet. The mountain... more
