Reviewed 16 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

The views and apartment are exactly as shown in the photos - just lovely! A large, modern apartment with everything required for a comfortable stay. It would easily take a family with 4 kids (large second bedroom with 2 singles and bunk beds) and two bathrooms (one en-suite to the main). The only thing it doesn't have is a DVD player. Secure parking is in the basement. Before you arrive, Eleonora will tell you to go to a particular address then you have to call her and she will come and meet you and take you to the apartment which is just a minute's drive from there.
Lierna itself is a quiet place which suited us. It has a small, sheltered beach area in front of the apartments complete with residents ducks and visiting geese and swans! There is a local pizzeria and small bar about 2 minutes walk along from the apartment on the lakefront. There are a few other pizzerias and a restaurant but we tended to cook for ourselves getting supplies from the local shops (2) and the larger supermarket in Mandello.
You can catch a local ferry around the Central Lake from Varenna, a short 10 minute drive further along the coast. There is a parking station there which costs 2 Euros an hour or 1 Euro between 12 and 2pm. Not cheap but at least it is available. Street parking is not really an option as these places are quite small with narrow streets.
It is good to wander round all the different towns/villages especially when you do the Lake tour. It can take all day if you get on and off at each place. Try and avoid the obvious tourist places to eat, though sometimes that is not that easy.
There is also a local railway station at Lierna which can be useful if you need it. You can get the express train to Milan from Varenna or take the local train to Lecco for the cablecar ride.
