Overview

Overview

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday home in Varenna

Nestled between the Fiumelatte torrent and the shores of lake Como

A charming house distinctive for its tall and narrow presence in the middle of Fiumelatte village, nestled between the Fiumelatte torrent and the shores of lake Como, with breathtaking views across the lake and over the “bijou” town of Varenna. The historic Fiumelatte has no cars so the house is accessed by foot (there is a private garage 200 meters away). The house has been entirely renovated by Italian architect Arturo Montanelli, using natural and site-specific materials. The interior is a monochrome of light grey punctuated by minimalist furniture of high quality. The ground floor has a bathroom and living room, the first floor is the kitchen with a spectacular terrace, and the second floor is the master bedroom. The famous Fiumelatte torrent just below the house, and sited by Leonardo da Vinci, gashes only at certain time of the year, usually after the melting of snows or after heavy rain falls. tourorangefiumelattedotblogspotdotcom

Cute house & a lovely location

Jean-Pierre met us at the station in Varenna and drove us to the little house in Fiumelatte, giving us an introduction to the area as we went.
We loved staying in the La Tour Orange. It is a great place to relax and enjoy the amazing views of Lake Como. We made good use of the little store/bakery nearby but it is also an easy walk into Varenna.
There was so much to see and do but we also found time to go swimming in the lake and relax in the sun. It was a perfect start to our holiday in Italy!

Wonderful House

  • 5 out of 5
What a wonderful place to stay. We stayed for a week in September 2009. The local restaurant (Platano) was a delight for afternoon coffee and an evening meal. The restoration of the house is a credit to Jean-Pierre and his wife. The view and the walk in to Varenna compete the package. Must better than the bigger and busier villages.

lovely narrow house with lake view

  • 5 out of 5
House was as lovely as the pictures show. The house is really narrow and because of stairs it is not suitable for all but the view from bed room is something to see. Location was good because train station is located at same side of the lake and only 1,5 km far away and trip to Bellagio or Menaggio took only 30 min. The garage was 500m far away but it was large and safe. We will rent the house again when we next time travel to lake Como.
