Fabio purchased this house in 2010
This house is unique! You will find no other balconies in Varenna like the ours. You will relax looking at the sunset from an armchair on our balcony; you will see swans that swim below you or the waves breaking on the rocks.
[Review from Flipkey]
We stayed for two weeks-the last week of May and 1st week of June this year. It was our 1st visit to the Lake Como area and it more than met our expectations. The views are spectacular in every direction. When we arrived in Milan instead of taking the train we hired a taxi...it was about an hour's drive. The family that rents Casa Mara was so accommodating we felt right at home. They were very helpful in getting us settled and providing information about the area. They even called us halfway through our vacation to see if all was ok.
No need to rent a car ...groceries and fresh produce are available in Varenna. Plenty of restaurants in the area ...no need to go anywhere else, though you can take a ferry to other towns around the lake. We did several times.
People are very friendly and most spoke English so communication was not difficult. Thanks to the property owner we had a great vacation and would do it again.
My husband, son, daughter In law and myself thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Varenna. The apartment is in a perfect location, was very clean, the beds were very comfortable and it was very well equipped with everything we needed. We enjoyed wine, meat and cheeses on the tiny balcony before venturing out to the many great restaurants in Varenna. Fabio did a great job in answering all our questions before we arrived and upon our arrival as well.
We stayed at Casa Mara for a week, and were very pleased with our choice! The description and pictures are accurate, the apartment even exceeded our expectations. It is a beautiful place with a great location in Varenna and stunning views from every window and of course the little deck. We spent part of each day on our deck, either with coffee in the morning or wine in the evening. This apartment is absolutely immaculate and beautifully maintained with a well equipped kitchen. The owners could not have been more helpful, kind or easier to work with. If you are going to Varenna, this is definitely the place to rent. We would highly recommend Casa Mara to friends, family and fellow travelers.
I could not recommend Casa Mara in Varenna and the hosts, the Molinari Family, highly enough. The location is incredible and the hosts ensured everything was perfect for a wonderful stay. I cannot wait to return.
Dear Travelers........... My wife and I arrived at our long anticipated visit to northern Italy at the end of March, to find Casa Mara to be a great place from which to explore the surrounding towns along the shores of Lake Como. The owners, Paolo, Mara and Fabio were the perfect hosts and went above what was experienced from our past homes we have rented while on vacation. Upon arrival, Paolo explained all the features and answered the questions we had about the home and Varenna sights. The functions of the home were explained to us in English, and from there on.... we felt right at home. The location of the home, near the lake, right in the center of the old village was exactly what we wanted. We both explored the many narrow streets, shops, harbor and even hiked up the hill behind the town to the ancient fortress. From the close ferry terminal, we traveled to Bellagio, Menaggio, and Bellano. Those towns also provided a great day of exploring. The restaurants were outstanding, and we both feel we have had our finest meals in the town of Varenna. Of all the places we have traveled in the world these meals were outstanding. Expect to spend 2 hours dining, as the food and presentation are like a fine play. In short..... the Hosts, the town of Varenna, and the people of Italy, all gave us a great time, and I would recommend this home, and location to any traveler to who wants to see a unique place in our world. Thank you Paolo, Mara and Fabio.
My husband and I and another couple spent one week in this lovely and very clean apartment. Paolo, the owner, was waiting for us at the tiny train station for a quick walk to the apartment. His English is very good and together with wife, Mara, and Fabio, their son, made us feel very welcome with suggestions on sites and restaurants. The apartment is in the old part of Varenna and close to the ferry dock and everything in town. Nice view of the ferries approaching Varenna from the kitchen window. Everything we needed was there. The large bathroom was great with two couples sharing and bedrooms were spacious and comfortable. Charming accomodation and we really loved our week in Varenna and ferry trips to nearby villages. Villa Carlotta is a must! Castle Vezio is worth the climb and Villa Monastero is also worthwhile. Thanks, Paolo, Mara and Fabio for making our week so memorable......Delane and Garry from California, USA
