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!

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.
