Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful property. Much better than I expected. The pictures do not do it justice. Clean. Well stocked. And plenty of square footage when compared to most in the area. Best part is the location. Just off the central square. Plenty of restaurants, historical churches (love the bells that toll on the hour), as well as a couple of markets. Overall, could not have been more pleased! Thank you Liz and Flora!!

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

The website and photos do not do this property justice. The place is centrally located, directly across the street from Villa Ciprese and Villa Monastero which both are well worth a visit for their stunning gardens. The property has three floors, with the first being a modern, well equipped kitchen, dining area and living room with a half bathroom, the second has a queen sized bedroom, full bathroom and second bedroom with two twin sized beds, going up, there is third bedroom with a twin sized bed and finally a 4th bedroom that is very large and has a king sized bed and a twin day bed as well with an enormous bathroom and cute balcony. In addition, there is a private yard with a table and chairs outside the third level on the back side of the building.

The town is beautiful, with picturesque sights everywhere you turn. We highly recommend the restaurant Al Prato nearby, we are only sorry that we waited our last night to go there, it was amazing! The tourist shop is steps away just up the street along with a village square that has the main church, several restaurants, a meat and cheese shop, small grocery store and pharmacy.

I would go back in a heartbeat.

Beautiful Italian Town on Lake Como

  • 4 of 5

We had a good trip to Varenna and Lake Como. There is so much to do and see it was amazing. The house was in a great location just on the edge of town and had parking (for a Fee) in the local car park which is right next door. Just be aware on the weekends it is busy but if you wait you will get in in a short amount of time. The house owner met us and provided some simple food and details on the house they were so accommodating and welcoming. We enjoyed hanging out on the top floor balcony and watching the people in the evening with some nice Italian wine.

Roomy property in the center of varenna

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 stayed quite comfortably in the house. The kitchen was well equipped and they even provided milk, eggs, fruit, and cookies for the kids. The location was great! Extremely short walks to the water and varenna town square. One thing to note, though, is that there is no air conditioning. It got especially hot & sticky on the 3rd floor during our June visit. Overall, it was an amazing trip. Thank you!!

Car: not necessary

Varenna lies exactly halfway down the eastern shore of the lake on the Lecco branch. It was built on a rock prominently overshadowed by a steep mountain, at the top of Which you can make out the outline of an old castle.

Varenna is an unusual and beautiful place: on the one hand, it is a lively and modern tourist resort, the center for all lake ferries, and on the other it preserves the remains of a medieval past Which is one of the best conserved in the area. Lovely and Varenna is a charming medieval town on the less trafficky side of the lake and it offers great views, beauty and relaxation.

A beautiful thing to do is to walk the lake front promenade - it's an ever-changing, flowery and romantic walk - called 'Passarella'. The Passarella connects the town center to the ferry boat harbor. Along the walk you'll pass villas, gardens and boats.

The harbor is a typical past times fishermen resort with pastel colored fishermen's houses and a small beach.

Head up the hill to St. George's Square the main square in town. There are several churches on the square including the Church Of San Giorgio with its belfry. Inside you'll find a polyptych of St. George (saint) by Giovan Pietro Brentani - Saint George, the Virgin and Saint Peter, a polyptych by Sigismund de Magistris (Baptism of Christ) and a carved altarpiece. Varenna anche has a castle That dates to 1300 - the Castello Di Vezio. The castle is located on a hill above the village. Once at the top, check out your view of Lake Como! There are gardens, a falconer, a drawbridge, a tower and there's a small cafe up here too!

There are two spots for taking time to 'smell the roses' ... .the Olivedo Villa Monastero and the fabulous architecture, gardens, terracing, statuary, views, pathways, grottoes. For Those Who enjoy Guinness Records, The Fiumelatte / (milky river), the shortest river in Italy, is just one km south of Varenna. This river (800 feet) falls from Grigna mountain peaks in a noisy, foamy, white rush to the lake below, only 6 months of the year (from April to September).

Stop at the tourist office and you can get a map That takes you from the main square to the Fiumelatte, on to the castle and then back to town. This is a wonderful town!
