Quaint Street, Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Valentina is in a perfect location - just a few steps up from the waterfront! The apartment is comfortable - including the beds! Both the street and the apartment are very authentic and charming. All the basic necessities were provided. Camilla was wonderful, met us upon arrival, and made herself available in case we had any questions during the week. We loved our week at Casa Valentina!

A note of caution for those with mobility issues - there are about 15 cobblestone stairs up from the waterfront to the building (part of what makes Varenna so charming!) Once in the building, the apartment is one flight up.

Excellent accomodation in central Varenna

  • 5 of 5

My daughter, her two kids (almost 3 and 5 years old), and me (the grandfather) just stayed there. The apartment is very well equipped: we appreciated the availability of unlimited hot water (not so in a previous stay in another apartment in Varenna) and the presence of all the basic you might need for a pleasant stay, including mobile wi-fi and dvd reader. The owner is kind and helpful. We came from our town in northern Italy by car and a garage was made available by the owner at reasonable walking distance. Those looking for restaurants will find lot of opportunities nearby. The town, although quite small, is absolutely nice and may be the basis for excursions to the surroundings.

Perfect location in the old part of town

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed staying in this convenient apartment with surprise views of the lake and the interesting collection of buildings around it. Just a few steps away from the lakeside walk to the ferry, this apartment is close to a number of excellent restaurants and the little salumeria and small grocery store near the town square. We enjoyed wandering in any direction and discovering the charming stepped streets that wind around, always leading down to the lake.

The photos accurately describe the apartment. The fireplace works, which was very nice on a chilly evening (ask for some wood to burn). It was very clean. The king size bed was quite comfortable. The kitchen is fully equipped, though very small. We ate out at the wonderful restaurants nearby, so no big food preparation, but we did like having the fridge for chilling a bottle of Prosecco and the milk for our coffee (your choice of an espresso maker or standard drip machine), and an oven to heat up some prepared crepes for breakfast one day (bought at a deli on the main shopping street in Menaggio).

The owner was very friendly and helpful.

Our favorite restaurant was Il Cavatapi, which is right around the corner. The Chef has just 5 tables and is personally involved with each guest. His pasta of the day is simple and amazing. The duck breast, lamb chops, and the pork with parmesan sauce and licorice are quite memorable. He was very helpful with wine pairings. We also enjoyed Varenna Mon Amour, a couple of streets over, which had the most incredible local fish pate with balsamic vinaigrette, dusted with cocoa.

Another very worthwhile experience is the cooking class by the Chef of Ristorante Il Caminetto, outside of town and up the hill. He picks you up at the square. The class ends with the meal of what you just learned to cook. The Chef dropped us off at the Castle Vezio, where we enjoyed the afternoon views of the lake and the cobblestone walk down the hill to town.

We would definately recommend staying at Casa Valentina!

An authentic experience in beautiful Varenna!

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I stayed in the Valentina House for a week with three teenagers. Marilena was absolutely fantastic in helping us book the apartment and answering all my questions regarding Varenna. Camilla was extremely helpful in meeting us at the train station and taking us to and from the apartment.

The apartment is perfectly located between the water and the town square in the historic part of Varenna. It does require walking up and down historic steps, but not too many. The teens spent a good deal of time on the balcony or at the cafes (especially Il Molo) on the water, giving them the freedom that they enjoyed. We were able to cook a couple of meals in the apartment, having purchased food at the grocery stores in the main square. The apartment is cozy, yet authentic. It is ideal for four people, but manageable for five. There is a pull-out cot in the main room.

The location in Varenna is perfect for visiting other towns on Lake Como via the ferry or train. We also went to Lugano Switzerland, via the bus from Menaggio. We had a truly wonderful and authentic experience, thanks to the ideal location and helpful owners.

The Perfect spot to experience the best of Varrena

  • 4 of 5

Firstly Varrena is full of the magic of Lake Como without the swell of tourists. Bliss. If you enjoy being part of the local scene but love good eating excellent views and being a 'stones throw' from the Lake edge, this is the spot for you. The apartment is just a few cobble steps from the Lake side with enough eateries, cafes etc.to keep you interested. We became locals at the Varenna caffe, drinking excellent coffee and croissants each morning, watching the ducks being feed. Valentina's House though small, has a feeling of home, with personal style, and the deck is a bonus. (Negatives - Could do with comfy couch and stereo) Wi Fi is available, small grocery store/wine shop 2 mins walk away and the ferry is within easy walking distance. Possible to walk from Train station, thou with heavy bags suggest taxi as just 8 euros. Enjoy, the many moods of Lake Como it is not to be missed and Varenna will hold a specail place in your heart and memories as it does in ours

ps BEWARE catch the train to Torano NOT Tireno. easy mistake to make at Milano Central Station. Made us 5 hours late!!!! but we were thrilled to still be meet at the Train station and driven to Valentina's House.
