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. There are a number of grandiose historical villas in Varenna, information on which are available from the Varenna tourist information offices. 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.

breathtaking

Positives... well maintained property, nice clean swimming pool, breathtaking views and close to friendly shop. Negatives....No a/c, no oven, rubbish tv and really recommend you hire car for this property or put your life in your own hands walking down the dangerous path to get to varenna (taxi €10 )

A lovely apartment with a wonderful view!

5 of 5
What a view to have for breakfast each morning!! Very clean, well-laid out apartment, with a beautiful view from the veranda, lounge and bedroom. Stefy, the owner, very friendly and helpful. Nice walk into Varenna (about 50 minutes walk), which is where the boats sail from. We bought a 6 day boat pass (45 Euros) for the central lake area, visiting many of the towns/villages, which all have so much character. Our favourite was Varenna itself, having a great variety of lakeside restaurants, ice cream shops, and steep alleyways. One day we bought an extra ticket and traveled down to Como.....beautiful 2 and half hour trip (on the way back we came half of the journey by the faster boat, so as to have longer in Como). Como itself was rather busy for us. I would advise having a car if you would prefer not/are not able to walk the 50 minutes to Varenna. For our part we loved the freedom of not having a car, as roads in the towns/villages are narrow and I would imagine very congested in the summer months. Would thoroughly recommend this apartment!
