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...More

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.

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)

Lots to discover: Lecco at 30 km is the main city and which italians adore to visit at least once in their life time as the stor...
