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!

It felt surreal. Lake views from the living room and master bedroom. Apartment was well equipped and very clean and comfortable. My family of 5 had more than enough space to spread out, but everyone's favourite spot seems to be close to balcony, looking out at Lake Como. MThe location was simply perfect...with train station and ferry both 5 minutes away by foot. Even though there were a few days of hot weather during the time we visited, there was always a nice breeze through the windows from Lake Como, and apartment always cooled off in evening for sleeping at night even with shutters closed. Wifi was good and fan in apartment was very helpful. The building itself was quiet with friendly neighbours. Communication was excellent with Marilena, the property manager, and Tiziano was so helpful in picking us up from train station and giving us very useful information about Varenna and surrounding areas. After having visited the surrounding towns like Bellagio, Mannagio, Bellano, and Fiumilatte, we're so glad we chose Varenna and Simona House as our home base. It was the most convenient and most scenic. We dream to come back soon one day!
