If there is low cloud the wifi will not work. Why would you want wifi? This is nature. Bring your computer there is a collection of old English movies. There is a radio CD player.
You need a car. There is a local bus at the end of the driveway everyday to go down the mountain early morning and local bread can be delivered from the local shop in Costa village. You can arrange with him to drop off the bread and pay him. The bus service is early morning and late afternoon and the local shop also operates taxi mini bus to go up and down the mountain. To get to the house from Gargnano you need a car. It is better to arrive with a sack of food so you can stay on the mountain. But there is an alimentation shop in Costa and 2 alimentation shops in Navazzo. For supermarkets then go to Toscolano.
You need a wool jacket for the evenings as this is the mountain. At night in the summer there is a fresh breeze and you can breath properly.
