Fiumelatte train station (which offers fast public transport to Milan and Varenna), can be accessed directly from the condominium.
The pretty and well established village of Fiumelatte claims its unique name from the distinctive frothy river which runs through the village and which is famous in Italy as the country’s shortest river! Fiumelatte serves local residents with a good and authentic Italian restaurant, a local bakery, a train service and other local amenities.
