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.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We enjoyed our stay in Varenna very much ! Casa Varenna was very easy to locate.. no problems with the lock box and getting in. The location was centrally ideal. Our vacation was fabulous.

Kitchen very well equipt ! Loft bedroom a little bit tight for our second couple... slanted walls not so good for adults, but we worked with it.

We could not get the clothes dryer to work, so you may consider not advertising washer/dryer in the house.

Our favorite pizzeria was Albergo de lSol in the square. Very nice owner , great pizza and complimentary lemoncello for us ! We ate gelatto every night , what a treat having three Gellatria’s to choose from.

Thank you for your prompt response to all of our needs and constantly keeping us in the loop ! Also , thanks for the complimentary little goodies... ( criossants, milk and decorative linen towel )

Ciao !

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.
