About the property

A design masterpiece with private pool, garden, completely renovated in 2008.

The main attraction of Olea House is its stunning 180 degree view of Lake Como. The house is a superb example of a restoration which is sympathetic to its surroundings. The former farmhouse blends traditional Italian style with contemporary features. The original stone structure has been retained and stone and wood are still the main components. The interior is both modern and functional. The garden, disturbed only by birdsong and hourly church bells, is a haven of tranquillity and relaxation; the private swimming pool as well as the nearby tennis and basket ball court will ensure your complete enjoyment. Everything is designed for the guests to feel comfortable and to make their holiday on Lake Como unforgettable. The house is located in the small village of Perledo, 2 miles drive from Varenna and 50 feet up a hill. Casa Olea takes its name from the 300 olive trees belonging to the property and every November there is an olive picking festival.

Beautiful and unique property with stunning views and the most refreshing pool

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 (parents and 2 kids aged 18 and 11) stayed here in August. The rooms were cool, the water pressure excellent ,and the pool provided the most refreshing swims we've ever had: the quality of water is exceptional given the care and specific cleaning processes and limited chemicals used.

The view is stunning, as is the quiet charm of Perlado. We're so glad we stayed here rather than the more tourist-trodden Varenna. Getting to and from Varenna was easy with taxis, and the nearby market and cafe made mornings and meals easy to manage as well.

We really appreciated the aesthetic of the apartment, the property in general and beautiful and unfussy landscaping. The property radiates a modern organic vibe that remains faithful to its origins and is utterly relaxing to be in.

Luciana was quick to respond from the first communication, and made check in easy. We would definitely stay here again. And again, and again...

Stunning View

  • 4 of 5

Let me review this property by category:

1. LOCATION: 5 stars. View from Casa Olea is stunning. From up the hill in Perledo, you're looking down at an amazing serene blue lake surrounded by this beautiful mountain peaks. Simply georgeous.

2. PROPERTY: 4 stars. Property is well maintained; no problem there - it's clean and that matters a lot. It lacks something though: no counter space in the bathroom for toiletries. I had my shampoo and the like on the shower floor. Would be good to have this little space for toiletries.

3. WELCOMING TOUCH: 3 stars. Instructions to get to the property via email were clear. Luciana was prompt on all email replies. Except for one little but very important detail: no presence to welcome the guests. Would be nice if there was somebody to say hello, show us around a bit even just for a few minutes. Little touches counts for a lot, in my opinion.

4. OVERALL: 4 stars.

My family and I had a great time, for sure. Met newlyweds, a lovely couple Chris and Susie from Germany. Met Louis too, a rambunctious, friendly, excited pug. Loved Louis.

Ein toller Urlaub im Casa Olea!

  • 5 of 5

Wir durften in den Sommerferien zwei wunderschöne Wochen am Comer See verbringen und haben unseren Aufenthalt im Casa Olea sehr genossen.

Der Ausblick von der Wohnung oder vom Pool ist einfach fantastisch! Auch von der Einrichtung der Wohnung waren wir begeistert!

Wir kommen gerne wieder.
