Where to spend two days in the countryside near Milan?

We're having trouble with this part of our trip. Milan--two days then three in Varenna. This September. Can you recommend some place (like a B&B or agriturismo) in the countryside near Milan and accessible by train? Or even a nice atmospheric town which is off the beaten track?Thanks!!

Bianzone in Valtellina has a small train station, good enough for slow holiday makers, and two very good accomodation options ;

not exactly near Milan....

Milan is not famous for its countryside, obviously, the closest places with a nice setting near Milan are in Brianza, for example Montevecchia is a nice place in the hills, and there should be some hotels or B&B there.

As an alternative, could combine Milan with a lake such as Maggiore.

Have a look at my recent report and photographs:-

Thanks. After Milan, we are going to Varenna on Lake Como for three nights. If we get tired of Milan, we'll take the train to Verona for part of a day.

Your welcome, Verona is extremely nice, better than Milan in my opinion. Have a great time!
