Perfect in every way !

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying in Marilena’s apartment so much a couple of years ago that we came back ! Once again, we had a lovely time in this beautiful village on the lake and the apartment was like a home from home for us. Warm, comfortable, spotlessly clean and in a brilliant location in Varenna overlooking the market square which, on this particular weekend, was hosting a plant and flower market so full of life and colour. You are only a short walk from the lake shore and a good choice of cafes and restaurants. Marilena is a very special host who does everything she can to make sure you enjoy your stay, however long. Nothing is too much trouble for her and it was so lovely to see her again. I cannot recommend Casa Maddelena highly enough and we will certainly be regular visitors. Thank you Marilena and we will see you again soon !

Live Like a Local!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent two delightful weeks in October in this very comfortable home away from home. Renting an apartment, instead of staying in a hotel, provides a totally different experience because you really feel like you're living in the location, rather than visiting. Marilena was the consummate hostess - from the time she picked us up at the train station, to the time she drove us back to the station (very early in the morning) - her focus was on making us comfortable and doing everything in her power to insure that our stay was enjoyable. As other reviewers have stated, the apartment is lovely, fitted with everything you could possibly want or need to function, and the location couldn't be more perfect - right on San Giorgio Square, where the church bells were a wonderful wakeup call each morning. I cannot imagine a more perfect way to spend time in Varenna, a lovely village on Lake Como with gorgeous views of the mountains. Go to Casa Maddalena - you will create sooo many unforgettable memories there!

Italien Flair

  • 5 of 5

Wer eine toll ausgestattete ursprüngliche Wohnung mitten im traumhaft schönen Varenna sucht, wird hier fündig!

Der Kontakt zur Vermieterin läuft perfekt und sehr persönlich.

Es ist alles da was man sich wünscht. Selbst ein kleiner Balkon um am späten Nachmittag ein Glas Win zu trinken ist vorhanden.

Besser geht es nicht!

Vielen Dank an Marilena und wenn wir noch einmal zum Comer See kommen, dann nach Varenna und in diese Wohnung !!!

Memorable Stay

  • 5 of 5

The Casa Maddelena couldn’t have been better for our week’s stay in Varenna. It felt more like moving into someone’s home rather than a rental property and was spotlessly clean, comfortable, very well equipped and had everything we needed. A stair lift is available for guests with mobility issues. Marilena couldn’t have been more helpful from the time we booked the apartment until we left and nothing was too much trouble for her. She made us so welcome and collecting us from the station and taking us back was a bonus! She ensured right from the start that we had everything we needed and genuinely wanted us to have a good time. Do listen to her tips and advice – she is a local born and bred so knows her stuff ! Varenna itself is a beautiful little town and a lovely place to base yourself to take trips to other places of interest around the lake and beyond. Too many highlights to list; we could happily have stayed for longer and would definitely return.

Well appointed apartment in beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 spent a wonderful week at Casa Maddalena! The apartment is perfectly situated on a town square surrounded by restaurants and close to the water. Easy access to the ferry made the entire lake accessible! The beds were very comfortable, the kitchen was fantastic, and the wifi and washing machine were great to have access to. Marilena is a fantastic hostess who treated us like family!
