Very nice apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this place. The owner lives in the apartment and was a gracious hostess. She picked us up at the train station and at the end dropped us off. The apartment is quiant and has spacious in the main center of town. There are several good restaurants in the square and we tried some of them. You can buy all daily needs just down the street. Overall we were very pleased with our stay there. We would definetly recommend it.

Great Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Maddalena House twice now, so we obviously love it there. Marilena is a fabulous hostess, and the apartment has absolutely everything you could possibly need. Is is situated on the lovely San Giorgio Square, where you can literally hang out the window to watch the passersby. Great dining right nextdoor, just steps away. 3 beautiful churches on the little square, one of which dates back to the 11th Century! Varenna is a beautiful little village, and Maddalena House the perfect apartment where you will feel like a local!

Three wonderful days in Varenna, Casa Maddalena

  • 5 of 5

The Casa Maddalena was a wonderful place for my 3 nights stay in Varenna. Perfect location right on the central piazza San Giorgio, with beautiful views and close to everything. Extremely clean, cozy and fully equipped. Marilena was a great host: caring, helpful, responsive, attentive to even small details and also very warm and hospitable. I would definitely rent this apartment again and/or recommend it to my friends.

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 !!!
