Memorable Stay

  • 5 out of 5
The Casa Maddelena couldn’t have been better for our week’s stay in Varenna. It felt more like moving into someone’s home rather than a rental property and was spotlessly clean, comfortable, very well equipped and had everything we needed. A stair lift is available for guests with mobility issues. Marilena couldn’t have been more helpful from the time we booked the apartment until we left and nothing was too much trouble for her. She made us so welcome and collecting us from the station and taking us back was a bonus! She ensured right from the start that we had everything we needed and genuinely wanted us to have a good time. Do listen to her tips and advice – she is a local born and bred so knows her stuff ! Varenna itself is a beautiful little town and a lovely place to base yourself to take trips to other places of interest around the lake and beyond. Too many highlights to list; we could happily have stayed for longer and would definitely return.

Well appointed apartment in beautiful location

  • 5 out of 5
Our family of 4 spent a wonderful week at Casa Maddalena! The apartment is perfectly situated on a town square surrounded by restaurants and close to the water. Easy access to the ferry made the entire lake accessible! The beds were very comfortable, the kitchen was fantastic, and the wifi and washing machine were great to have access to. Marilena is a fantastic hostess who treated us like family!

“The Gems of Varenna, Lake Como”

  • 5 out of 5
If George Clooney is considered “The Treasure of Lake Como” and Bellagio is considered “The Pearl of the Lake,” then surely “The Gems of Lake Como” must be Marilena and her trusty sidekick “Tartufina”.

We discovered Varenna after typing “Most picturesque village in Lake Como” and were not disappointed when we arrived to see its stunning views across the Lake to Bellagio and Menaggio with snow-capped mountains.


From the moment we were greeted by our hostess, Marilena, at the nearby train station we were made to feel most welcome. Throughout our many years of travels within Europe we have never met such a helpful and vibrant person who goes above and beyond to provide a high level of customer service that ensure the best possible holiday experience.

The apartment location overlooking Piazza San Giorgio with its typical Italian buildings and historic church bells that regularly chime is simply charming. We found the accommodation to be well stocked and offered everything we required to make ourselves comfortable and feel at home which is in stark contrast to staying at hotels. As we had booked for 25 days I particularly appreciated access to satellite television/Wi-Fi, washing machine and a well-equipped kitchen. The apartment was moments from the lakeshore, shops, restaurants, and transportation making it very livable indeed.

Varenna itself is more relaxed than other more ‘touristy’ parts of the lake providing the opportunity for slow paced walks or to just sit and watch the white swans move gracefully through the water in an atmosphere of peace and serenity. The locals are warm, friendly people who greet visitors with a smile and genuine “Buon Giorno”. There are many fine restaurants, bars, coffee shop, pizzeria, and gelaterios to explore and enjoy. Excellent transportation links make daily trips to Milan and other parts of Italy easily accessible.

We have no hesitation in recommending Varenna and Marilena Apartments to anyone considering Lake Como as a holiday destination. We enjoyed the experience so much we decided to move here permanently! We would like to acknowledge the outstanding support given by Marilena who secured our magnificent long-term residence overlooking the picturesque lake! Marilena organised viewings of several apartments, set up utilities and acted as intermediary all on her own initiative!!!

Who needs George Clooney when you can have Marilena!

Maddalena House

  • 5 out of 5
We recently spent two weeks in Marilena Anghileri’s Maddalena House in central Varenna. The one-bedroom apartment was located on Varenna’s main piazza, with a picture-perfect view of the piazza and the town’s church. The apartment was clean, comfortably well appointed, authentically decorated, and had a modern, updated kitchen and bath. Ten minutes walk to the train station. Less than ten minutes walk to the ferry. One minute walk down to the waterfront. Several dining options right out the door on the piazza and off. Varenna’s two small food shops (macelleria and frutta e verdura) and town pharmacy are also located on the piazza. And for the two weeks we were living there, the main piazza had several local events that had us right in the middle of things.

Varenna is centrally located on Lake Como, a ferry ride away from Bellagio, Menaggio, and the other lake towns. Trains runs north-south on the east side of the lake through Varenna. Milano is just over an hour away by train; St. Moritz via the Bernina Express is a long day trip, but worth the effort for the adventure. We chose not to rent a car and never felt we needed one. For “groceries,” take the five-minute train ride north to Bellano.

Varenna makes a great base for exploring this part of Italy. After two weeks of almost daily excursions, we feel like there is more to do. We will happily return.

We really enjoyed our stay and wholeheartedly recommend this apartment to those looking for an authentic Italian experience in the lovely small town of Varenna.

Perfect location

  • 5 out of 5
I want to take a minute to say how much we enjoyed our stay at Marilena house : we loved its charm and wish we could have stayed longer. We've just returned home from our trip to Italy and can say it was the best week since the start of our trip,thanks for organizing our stay in Verenna. The apartment is located in the best central position of the town,spacious and clean : the owner asked how we were doing whenever we met her .We really enjoyed staying in this beautiful village, visiting the villas around the lake and walking in the mountains above it (we hiked up to the little church at Bologna and had amazing views of the lake from there).Marilena is a great host and we are sure to recommend this apartment to any of our friends traveling through Italy in the future.

Marilena House was recommended by a work colleague and lived up to our expectations. The apartment was very comfortable in an oldie worldie style and immaculately clean. The bedroom overlooked the beautiful town square and church. Excellent restaurants were just a few minutes walk away and the ferry dock, with regular trips to all the main resorts, a very pleasant 10 minute stroll with lovely views from Lovers Walk. We did not hire a car and thoroughly enjoyed just hoping on and off ferries.
Marilena was there to welcome us on arrival and run through the facilities of the apartment and local information. We would definitely recommend this apartment and the beautiful town of Varenna to friends and family and hope to return for another trip again.
