Make a holiday rental home or villa in Varenna, Italy your home away from home

Varenna is a beautifully colourful village on the shores of Lake Como in Lombardy, where romance blossoms and peace abounds.

Things to do in Varenna, Italy

When you take a self catering Varenna villa, you can be as active or as passive as you like. Simply getting away from it all, soaking up the sun on one of the pristine little beaches, eating amazingly leisurely lunches accompanied by the finest wines and enjoying the impossibly romantic setting is a sublime way to use your Varenna accommodation, but for anyone looking to enjoy a little more activity, there is plenty to enjoy too. Life is a wonderfully slow experience in Varenna, and even restaurants have been known to shut for lunch! If it is real peace and quiet you are looking for, look no further than a self catering villa in Varenna, Italy.

Anyone wishing to burn off a few of the calories undoubtedly taken on over lunch have a great range of options too. There are endless walks to be enjoyed all around the lake, although the hills are fairly steep in places. The higher you walk though, the more magnificent the views and the cooler the air, so the rewards make the effort well worth it.

Antonella and Roberto were incredibly warm and welcoming hosts five stars for that alone! Recommending this villa to everyone i know. The area itself is magical, from the lake and mountain views to the beautiful itallian towns and villiages (we drove to Italy so had a car and at least passed through the majority of them even if not stopping on every occasion). The view from the top of the mountain from Pigra (reached by cable car from Agregro) is unmissable. When you have visited the many beautiful locations by road or foot, hire a boat for a couple of hours and see them from a different perspective. One of the most beautiful locations i have visited and my wife was a travel agent for 20 years so i have seen a few! For those of you with the stamina for it, drive there through Austria and Switzerland to make the journey part of the holliday -24 hours or so depending on chosen route and stops from manchester uk! Don't miss this destination.

The private garden/terrace afforded spectacular views of lake Como and our hosts Marco and Daniela were so welcoming. The apartment itself had everything we needed. The drinks, chilled water and snacks on arrival were a lovely touch and much appreciated after a long journey. The loactaion of the apartment is ideal. We took the 15 minute ferry trip from Varenna to Bellagio and also to Menaggio. Other days we drove to explore other little villages. While we were concerned about the narrow road to Varenna, we cycled it everyday and found that in fact drivers do make allowances for cyclists. There is so much to do in this area, but if you didn't want to do anything at all, you could simply relax in the apartment for your entire stay and still experience the beauty of Lake Como. This is an apartment we will revisit!
