Casa Olea is a small residence made of 4 apartments for a number from 2 to 6 persons. Every room of the house has view on the lake and each apartment exits on the garden separated one to the other by a jasmine hedge. The place is very quiet and the small village of Perledo is amazing.

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 views!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay in the yellow apartment at Olea House. The views are extraordinary, the property is beautiful, and the apartment is lovely.

Varenna is a charming village. Very walkable with cute shops and some great restaurants. We also went to Bellagio and Menaggio, which we enjoyed but we really preferred Varenna.

We did not have a car so we would walk down to Varenna and take a cab back up. It was fine, but would probably prefer to have a car next time.

Luciana was wonderful to work with. Responsive and answered all my questions. Check in and out was easy.

Highly recommend.

Beautiful Mountain Views

  • 4 of 5

This is a very modern new apartment with stunning views and a pool. Perfect for our weekend getaway. Very relaxing, quiet area. Small market within a short walk provided the essentials and a few surprises (great bread). The walk (hike) down the hill to Varenna provides shopping and restaurant opportunities. Taxi is available to return up the hill. Lovely churches are just around the corner. This apartment provided a needed respite during our busy tour of Italy.

What an amazing view

  • 4 of 5

A spacious and well constructed apartment with an amazing view across Lake Como. The view is honestly breathtaking. Arrangements for check-in and check-out were simple, and the one question I had during my stay was answered promptly. The apartment is about 2.5 km up quite a steep hill from Varenna train station and ferry wharf. We didn't find this a problem, and treked up and down the hill at least once a day. There's a great little shop within two minutes walk, which serviced our basic needs. My only criticism of the property and reason I haven't given it five stars is that some of the fitout could be better. The TV was about the size of an iPad mini and could be a museum piece (doesn't even have HDMI input), although this didn't matter much as there was no reception for the satellite service in any case. We didn't visit with the expectation of watching television, but it would have been nice to have the option on the one day it rained during our stay. The other furnishings (including kitchen fitout) are also very basic. While I acknowledge the apartment is a holiday let, at the price point the furnishings and fixtures could be better. That said, the bed was comfortable and apartment included all that we needed for our stay. Access to the neighbouring two apartments is through the shared garden in front of the property. Combined with the full length windows/glass doors at the front of the property, this could cause privacy concerns for some - although we didn't find it to be a problem. Overall, a great property that I would certainly choose again.

Stunning location and wonderful property

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six have just returned from a wonderful stay at Casa Olea. The location is perfect for a stay at Lake Como. The view is awesome. It was a lovely haven to return to after a trip out. The property feels spacious and is very comfortable, with everything you might need. It is also very stylish. While we were there we enjoyed a boat trip to Bellagio and a day trip to Milan on the train. Lots of good restaurants to eat out easily. And a very convenient shop 2 minutes away which stocks everything you need if you want to eat in. We also liked the bar in the market square - excellent coffee, beer and pizzas. Staying in Perledo was so easy.
