Andrea and his family were helpful from the outset, from advice for getting there, meeting us on arrival and showing us around. His mother and sister kindly came ever so early in the morning to return the deposit when we left.
Casa Ortensia was clean and comfortable and well kitted out, and the windows are right above the lake so you could hear the waves lapping on the shore at night. The village catches the breeze nearly all the time so it was a lovely temperature. We ate on the upstairs verandah for the views of the mountains and lake.
The quiet village is built on the cliff which involves lots of walking up and down cobble stairs to the church square where you park the car, and down more (2 mins) to the lake. We swam every day from the little stony beach and harbour. Small supermarkets and restaurants are in Dervio and Colico about 3 and 7 minutes away in either direction. We hired canoes on the lake and walked along the old medieval cobbled road into the mountains...

About the neighbourhood
Corenno Plinio = the castle of Andreani and a cluster of houses around it. Casa Ortensia makes part of it, and in medieval times is was even interconnected with the castle. The castle is built on a rock and the houses around it are built onto the sloping rock, so lots of steep footpaths and steps. To reach Villa Ortensia from the car park you have to go down partly on a footpath and some steps. So comfortable shoes and no heavy suitcase. <BR><BR>Corenno Plinio has no shops, no restaurants, it is a very quiet hamlet which still give you the feeling of past times. Much the better! For shopping etc you depend on Dervio ( 4 km), Bellano, Colico and Varenna ( about 10 km) <BR><BR>Lots to discover: Lecco at 30 km is the main city and which italians adore to visit at least... more
