What makes this house unique
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.
Guestbook comments from the owner
[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.
