Make a holiday rental home or villa in Varenna, Italy your home away from home

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.

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.

A lovely stay in a house full of character

5 of 5
We traveled as a family with 2 young kids and had a great time at Stefy's house that is located within 10-15 minutes' walk from the historic centre of Bellagio. The house is fantastic, it has been restored to a high standard and is a pleasure to live in. Stefy is a lovely host and provided us with lots of tips around where to go/what to do in the area. Be sure to take a ferry ride to Mennagio and Varenna, it's such a treat. Latteria di Bellagio that sells fantastic local cheeses, salamis and fresh milk is just 3 minutes walk from the house and is a must visit. The only minor downside for families with young kids is two quite steep staircases in the house so you have to be extra vigilant with the little ones.
