“We had a great trip to Gina and Jeff’s home in beautiful Prata, gorgeous village and a great place to explore from. The house was just perfect for us and our three kids. As it was Christmas there was a Christmas tree and lots of Christmassy touches around the house. We also had numbers for a couple of people if we needed anything while there. We were made feel very welcome and enjoyed our stay enormously. Would highly recommend!”
Gina's reviewsAs a host (4)
“Gina’s home is in a Stunningly Beautiful part of Italy. Prata Camportaccio and Chiavenna really surpassed our expectations. Friendly and laid back with dramatic mountain views from every window. Gina gave us great tips on where to visit. We loved the daily trains to and from Chiavenna and Colico and buses to the aguafraggio, St Moritz and Soglio. A car would be quicker but we found the trains more fun. There are public bikes in the village to rent and bike paths everywhere. There are endless places to visit, hike and bike in the mountains and by lake Como but I recommend exploring what is on your doorstep as Prata and Chievenna have hidden gems . Every season would have something different to offer. It’s been a magical memorable trip Thanks so much Gina for your hospitality. Fiona and Family. ”
“Gina and Jeff were wonderful hosts and we thoroughly enjoyed staying in their beautiful home which is set in absolutely stunning surroundings with glorious mountain views on all sides. Their home is absolutely spotless, very comfortable, and well equipped with everything you might need, an ideal base to explore Northern Italy / Switzerland. Gina’s communication was amazing and she provided us with very detailed information about the surrounding area and loads of advice on places to visit during our stay. We spent 11 days here and found that there are so many places to visit both within a few miles from the house and with only an hour or so of driving we found ourselves really high up in the snowy mountains giving breathtaking views of the countryside below. One of our days was a drive into Switzerland to St. Moritz and further north into Davos, again the views were spectacular and well worth a visit. There are so many small towns and villages around Lake Como that are worth stopping in for a walk around or just to have a coffee. We fell in love with Varenna where we took the ferry to visit Bellagio and Mennagio, and loved sitting in some of Varenna’s small lakeside bars for snacks and coffee. All in all we had an amazing holiday, highly recommended, thank you once again Gina and Jeff. ”
“We had 4 nights in Gina's super apartment in mid-April 2018. We wanted to explore Lake Como. We found it fabulously positioned to do just this. An easy and lovely drive to Bellano and Varenna, with glorious ferry trips to Bellagio and Managgiori. At the head of the Lake, Gina's home is surrounded by superb mountains and so there was a sense of great tranquility and beauty which we loved. The fabulous little village of Chiavenna was only 5 mins drive away, full of history, restaurants and charm. Gina was wonderful to correspond with. Always available, helpful and determined to make our stay as memorial as possible. It certainly will be! Thanks Gina.”
