Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Varenna
Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)
MARIAS HOUSE, a lovely one-bedroom apartment located in Varenna, an elegant village on the shore of Italy's Lake Como. The beauty of the place is clearly evident in its ancient buildings, its romantic views, its impressive nature. A distinctive feature of Varenna is the mildness of the climate, which is proved by the olive trees, the cypress trees and other botanic species typical if the lake and is due to its special exposure: leant to the mountain, the village is facing south and west, so it is sunny and warm till late in the evening.
In the heart of Varenna's old quarter, just little steps from the water and the main square, the apartment looks onto a picturesque cobblestone pedestrian-only archway leading straight to the beach and the lakeside with the beautiful pubs, restaurants, shops and art galleries.
The rooms of this apartment on the first floor of a recently restored sixteen century building affords picturesque views of the lake. The hall, the bedroom, the bathroom with shower and the kitchen-sitting room with fireplace are bright and furnished with good taste, in a modern and functional style
No car is needed as you explore the ancient town of Varenna. Archways and steep, narrow lanes (which eventually end at the lake), beautiful ancient buildings and the elegant atmosphere grace this lovely town.
The passenger and car ferries are also minutes away, reaching the exquisite villages, gardens and villas that dot the lakeshore. The lake of Como itself and the nearby area offer the best in skiing, windsurfing, hiking and biking.
Shops, restaurants, pizzeria, bars, pharmacy arround 30 meters.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Buon Giorno Maria and Pietro,
Thank you very much for a wonderful time in Varenna. The apartment was perfect in every way. We enjoyed all the comforts of the apartment, especially the internet, the washing machine and the location near the center. The apartment was so clean and comfortable. Everything we needed was available.
Thank you, too, for your kind hospitality picking us up at the airport and taking us to your home for a delicious Italian dinner...Maria is a wonderful cook! The night we spent in the B&B was very nice too. We are sorry we woke up so late....it was a very long trip from California and many hours time difference.
We enjoyed the beautiful village of Varenna. We took ferries to Bellagio and to Villa Carlotta. We hiked up to the castle and took the train to Tirano and then to St. Moritz. We enjoyed a delicious dinner at Albergo Milano.
We took the train to Monterosso and spent 3 days hiking in the Cinque Terre...very beautiful.
Then we took a train to Venice and took a 7 day cruise to Bari, Istanbul and Croatia.
We love Italy and hope to come back again.
We thank you so much for a wonderful experience.
I would like to post a comment in the guest book. I could not bring it up from your link. I will try from your website.
