CASA VARENNA - LUXURY IN CENTRAL VARENNA JUST 50 STEPS FROM THE LAKE

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Varenna - Casa Varenna

Two bedroom townhouse in the centre of Varenna, Lake Como

We have ensured that a perfect location is also supported by wonderful interior facilities and furnishings. Casa Varenna is approx. 115m2 and is neatly arranged over 3 floors (loft bedroom at the top has full air-conditioning). Through the entrance hall on the ground floor, a warm & welcoming living room beacons with soft, nutmeg brown leather sofas, walnut wood furniture, ornate marble fireplace and a sophisticated, stylish kitchen & breakfast bar. Entertainment is fully catered for by way of Wi-Fi, a 37' plasma TV with full English Satellite channels, DVD player & a 2nd DVD/BlueRay player & XBox with 4 games and 3 controllers.

The master bedroom with flat screen plasma TV & English Freesat box and en-suite shower room are on the first floor together with a second shower room next to the spiral staircase leading up to the air conditioned loft bedroom with 32' flat screen plasma TV, DVD & XBox with 4 games & 3 controllers & roof terrace on the third floor.

Centre of Varenna: Varenna's apartments or houses don't come in many better locations than 'Casa Varenna'. This newly refurbished town house (open 6th March 2010) is located in the centre of the old town only 30m from the lake front. Varenna has some of the best small restaurants, trattoria's & pizzerias on the Lake, most of which are found in these rustic cobbled streets dating back to Roman times and only a minutes’ walk away. Casa Varenna is also 100m from the main square and only a 5 minute walk from the ferry terminal, following the lake side path.

Anybody who knows Varenna, will appreciate the combination of charm and town accessibility, via road, ferry and the railway station. This allows those who do not wish to hire a car, to arrive by boat or train. Without a car however, the need to stay central is greatly increased, as Lake Como is surrounded by steep hillsides.

Marrying on Lake Como: Varenna is not only a favourite honeymoon destination but also a popular place to get married and Villa Cipressi, the Hotel Victoria, Albergo Milano and Hotel du Lac accommodate many guests with several involved in hosting wedding ceremonies. In addition, the famous Villa Monastero is also popular for conferences and international events with the splendid gardens open to the public between March - Nov. All these hotels and villas are literally 2-5 minutes way on foot and avoid the need for taxis or cars. Vacation rentals do of course offer a much more relaxed approach to preparing for these events and being able to follow your own agenda.

Things to do!: Believe it or not and crazy as it sounds, you can also catch a train from Varenna to Venice & be back in the evening on the same day!

Travelling by train is so easy & cheap in Italy. Take a day trip to Milan - see the incredible cathedral, Leonardo's 'The Last Supper' or shop in the famous 'Galleria di Vittorio Emanuele' or the chic 'Quadrilatero' - the area of four streets which offer the very best fashion boutiques, antique shops and jewellers, the Mecca of designer shops! Only an hour away by train from Varenna.

We loved Varenna and the apartment

  • Review Submitted: 09-Oct-2012
  • Date of Stay: Jun 2012
We just got back from our big trip. We loved Varenna and the apartment (Casa Varenna) was perfect for our family. We loved the location and the people of Varenna. Our highlight was our family's all day cooking class with Chef Moreno. He was awesome and Chris and I and our boys will never forget it. Varenna was perfect for us because we don't care for loud touristy places. We enjoyed the ferry to various locations and enjoyed some of the local restaurants as well as the farmers market. Having an apartment is great because we were able to pick up meats, cheeses, breads, fruits, and pastries and enjoy a feast in the apartment. We will God-willing return to Varenna. Thank you for your help. Directions were great, keys were there and we really loved the apartment. Have a great day!!!

the service from your company is impeccable

  • Review Submitted: 23-Apr-2012
  • Date of Stay: Apr 2012
Thanks for your email. We absolutely loved our holiday in Varenna and the place was amazing.
It was beautifully decorated, great location and the service from your company is impeccable. Extremely responsive (even when I asked stupid questions that I should have already known), very detailed – everything you can think of is in a folder with explicit directions. The website is filled with great things to do . I was bummed that I didn’t see the pre-ordering of wine link until it was too late. You made it very easy to spend holiday there because all of the research is at your fingertips. Lastly, the staff (everyone) was so friendly, helpful..the list goes on. You really can tell that you all love your job.

We took the ferry to Bellagio for dinner one night. We went to Il Bilacus (spelling?). It was very good and the service was great. It was on your recommendations list. I do have to say that climbing those steps with 2 prams had me sweating like a pig by the time we got to the top. Brutal! We also went to Varenna mon amour for dinner and it was pretty good as well. We went to Hotel Victoria (I think) in Menaggio for Easter brunch. It was beautiful and the food was delicious. Service was a little slow and it wasn’t totally busy on the terrace. The ferry was really easy too.

Thanks again for everything.

Casa Varenna is just the most beautiful place

  • Review Submitted: 18-Jul-2011
  • Date of Stay: Jul 2011
Well what can I say, Casa Varenna is just the most beautiful place, we did not want to leave, we had the most amazing time there.

Everything was so handy and all the locals so friendly the apartment was just divine we did not want to leave it even during the day, but of course we had to go out to see the rest of the beauty in Como and it was just so lovely to come home to our fabulous house. We are now back (sadly) but that has to be and our memories are so special. Thanks for sharing your wonderful property with us.

The Browns

  • Review Submitted: 02-Jul-2010
  • Date of Stay: May 2010
We rented a house, Casa Varenna in Varenna. It was the perfect way to do the Lake District for us. It was great to feel like we lived there, while all the other tourists were heading home in the evening. Varenna is not so tourist-loaded as Bellagio, so it has a really nice feel, and it's truly beautiful. The lake sparkles, the mountains are snow-covered, and the gardens along the lake are picturesque. The ferry makes much of the rest of Lake Como very accessible - it's only a few minutes to Bellagio or Managgio, for instance - and the ferry is fun.

The town is small and quaint, but adequately equipped. There's a small grocery, and a bar where you can get croissants in the morning and internet as well. There's a deli next door. We found a hotel at the far end of the walk next to the lake with an excellent patio for cocktail hour.

We really liked the house itself. It obviously is someone's second home, as it has a very equipped, lovely modern kitchen and a nice living room on the first floor. The second floor has a master bedroom and bath, closed off by a door from a second bath and the bedroom on the third floor. This second bedroom has low ceilings, but the perk of having a little porch which is cut through the roof. It's a very pleasant place to have breakfast, or drinks at night. So the house works well for two couples, and would also work well for a family.

Varenna dates back to the Western Roman Empire and was historically mentioned by Corius in the history of Milan as far back as 493AD. The first definite reference for its existence was by the Deacon Grato of Monza in 769AD but its true history began after 1000AD when the Island of Conancina was destroyed in 1169 and the refugees took shelter there.

The locals welcomed them, the population & prosperity of the medieval town flourished and to this day, the towns charm & well preserved history with its cobbled streets & pretty houses, really is everyone's favourite place to visit.

Other Activities: Sailing, hiking

Golf: The world famous Menaggio and Cadenabblia Golf Club is positioned on the hillside above Menaggio which is only a 15 min ferry ride across the lake. We recommend the Club House restaurant - absolutely delicious!

Ski: Skiing in the area is bountiful with resorts such as Madesimo 1.15 hours to the north and the local ski resorts of Piani di Bobbio & Pien della Betulla, only 40 - 50 minutes away. For an exciting day trip any time of year, why not go on the beautiful drive, through the Alps, to the international jet-set resort of St. Moritz, only 1.5 hours by car.
