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. Fantastically well connected to the other towns and villages that surround Lake Como, by rail, ferry and road, a holiday rental villa in Varenna is the perfect base for exploration of the whole of Lake Como, Italy.

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.

Varenna has a history that dates back many thousands of years, and the stunning villas that line the main square, the Albergo Royal Victoria, are testament to the village’s wealthy past.

The old ferry that serves Varenna is a wonderful way to extend your sightseeing trips of Lake Como, and missing the ferry is never a disaster, there are always plenty of things to explore, and plenty of cafes in which to sip a latte in the sun.

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. The lake itself is a great sporting facility too, and whether you are interested in a refreshing swim, a day sailing or a great fishing expedition, a self catering Varenna villa is an ideal option.

So wie man sich Italien vorstellt, wenn man keinen Rummel braucht und keineTouristen aus aller Herren Länder treffen möchte. Ein kleines beschauliches Dorf in den Bergen, kleine verwinkelte Gässchen und ein traumhafter Blick auf den See. Mit dem Auto ist alles bestens erreichbar (auch der Bus hält fast vor der Haustür) und für den täglichen Bedarf gibt es einen Supermarkt in wenigen Gehminuten. Der Vermieter hat alle Infos für Ausflüge, Bootstouren, Restaurants parat und ist sehr freundlich und zuvorkommend. In der Wohnung gibt es alles was man so braucht, es ist sauber und eher retro eingerichtet. Mir und meinem Sohn (15) hat es super gut gefallen und wir würden jederzeit wieder dort Urlaub machen. Danke Andrea :-)

It was adequately equipped for our stay and all appliances worked and there was always hot water available. The layout is compact but very comfortable.Bedding and towels were clean as was the accommodation on arrival It would not however suit anyone with mobility issues as there are steps up to the property and internally to the two levels. The front door opens to an entrance hall and stairs lead off.There is one bedroom with a double bed and a gallery level with two single beds a a bathroom with shower and a large wardrobe on the first floor.The lounge area and kitchen area are on the second up a further flight of stairs Lory was very helpful before our stay with information and available throughout our stay if needed.She met us at the train station and took us to the property.The station is above Fiumelatte with wide cobbled steps down to ground level if you have a lot of luggage it could be a difficult descent. The walk into Varenna from the property is mainly on a footpath alongside the main road .Just at the start is a small section without a footpath.We walk a lot at a steady pace it was around 15 to 20 minutes to Varenna and very very scenic.There is a small bakery and a restaurant at Fiumelatte.There is an off road route along the Greenway that goes behind the property and also a short cut if you were luggage free to Fiumelatte station. All in all it was a very good find we had a lovely stay and were able to explore the lake very easily from here.

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.
