Thanks Dana and Giuseppe for letting us stay in your wonderful apartment. We appreciated all your helpful advice and the many fine touches you included to make us feel welcome. The view of course, is to die for and the sun lounge and barbecue area up the top is just fabulous. We would love to come back again. Best regards.

Excellent, quiet and beautiful

I'm somewhat reluctant about telling people about this place - it will make it more difficult for us to return! Anyway, the pictures of the house and extensive gardens do not do justice to the property, view or the idyllic location. The owner, Sebastiano, could not have been more helpful and we will be returning either to this house or others that he owns. There is someone who lives onsite but I did not see or hear him - although I presume he must have mowed the lawns and tended to the garden at some point. We visited a number of places around the Italian lakes during our stay - and if you are looking for peaceful surroundings and a relaxed time away from home then Ranco is the place to be.
