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.

Charming Town with a Delightful Host

5 of 5
My wife and I had an absolutely delightful time in the picturedsque town of Varenna, in no small part due to the wonderful apartment we were lucky enough to find, and to the apartment's extremely charming owner, Marilena. First of all, the apartment is ideally located, smack dab in the middle of town. It has everything you need, including a lovely kitchen. As nice as the living quarters are, it was the town we came to see, and Marilena couldn't have been more helpful. She picked us up at the train station when we arrived and gave us an guided tour. Her restaurant recommendations were spot on, and her general knowledge of Varenna added so much to our enjoyment of it - not to mention that Marilena was herself a delight, making us feel like family. At the end our all too brief stay, she was kind enough to give us a ride back to the station. We were very sorry to be leaving, but fully expect to return one day. When we do, we will surely again be staying at Casa Maddalena.
