Ideally located a one bedroom apartment in Vista D'Oro, a new development on the hillside just below the village of Perledo and 2 minutes up the hillside by car from the romantic and historic town of Varenna.
With sensational views of Lake Como from the living room and large private garden, this apartment is ideal for anybody looking to be 2 minutes out of town and two minutes from the hills and lake. The apartment has the use of the residents outdoor swimming pool and has secure garage parking.
The view from this property is spectacular and it deserves five stars. It is on a corner lot so in addition to the views it is a very private and tranquil unit.
The unit is exactly as described; no surprises there. However, when we checked into our unit at 4:00 p.m. the place had not been cleaned. There were still dirty sheets on the beds and dirty towels in the bathroom. I was able to get in contact with the manager of the property who arrived within 30 minutes with bedding and a few towels. Initially, she have us four towels (we are a family of four) and I had to beg her for four additional towels. She changed the beds but never cleaned the unit. I had to call her about an hour later because the shower was not draining. She was there within an hour and plunged the drain.
Communication with owner: The owner always answered my questions prior to our arrival. However, I contacted her three times via email to ask if we could get another fan in the unit. It was hot during our stay and there was only one fan in the unit. I never heard back from the owner; however, the manager also asked permission to obtain a fan and five days later we had another fan.
If you are staying at this property, you really need a car. The walk is beautiful but steep. When it rains, the cobblestones are very, very slippery.
There are some wonderful restaurants in Varenna. Our favorites are Cavatappi and Ristorante Varenna Monamour.
This could be a five-star property if it was professionally managed and cleaned.
The property was really something. Great view, decently stocked kitchen and nice comfy bed. We found that it was necessary to take a taxi to the room from the train as the uphill was quite steep. Very nice location to unwind and enjoy.
We enjoyed our time In this apartment situated above the town. The views are as pictured and there is a large outdoor patio to sit out and enjoy them. The owner's agent made sure we had everything we needed and answered any questions. We had a car which made it easy to get around (the apartment is a 5 minute drive from the train station on winding roads) and parking at the Apartment was easy (not necessarily true in other areas of this town). There is a grocery less than a km up the hill, and we parked at the train station when we wanted to take a ferry or go into town. There is a good information center right at the train station. The apartment had everything we needed to cook some meals which we enjoy doing while traveling. Thank you for an enjoyable stay.
Beautiful apartment with great views of the lake , owner tips and advice all very welcome and a great help. Will definitely be back as soon as possible!
Magnificent apartment and views are truly breath taking. Excellent hospitality from our hosts and ease of communication gave us great peace of mind, and enabled us to have a wonderful stay. Will definitely be back!
"What a view! It was beyond breathtaking and far exceeded our expectation. The apartment was very well equipped and we instantly felt at home and comfortable. To gain the views it is quite a way up the hill which is fine getting down as there are quaint short cuts so you don’t have to walk down the road but we didn’t fancy the hike back up! We found that there is a bus that runs throughout the day although watch out for typical Italian lunch times when it doesn’t run. The best find was that the train station car park doesn’t charge you to park throughout the day which is only a 2 minute walk to the centre of Varenna. We would recommend a stay at this property to anyone who wants a romantic break for two or a base for families to explore the wider area."
Easy to get to by car or train, only 60 minutes from the airport at Bergamo or from Milan railway station. If not hiring car, taxi service is available at train station.
Varenna is the ideal location, being on the Golden Triangle (Varenna, Bellagio and Menaggio). With a truly ancient cobbled town as your backdrop, you can travel around Lake Como by ferry (car ferries are only available in the 'triangle'), explore the villas and gardens and delight in the romantic setting whilst enjoying the local cuisine fresh from the lake.
Varenna's Romantic Promenade - If you walk along the waters edge to the right of the ferry terminal you will naturally be led to the lakeside promenade 'La Passerella' which is a cantilevered walkway coming out from the rock face of the shore. A favourite with romantics and especially beautiful in the evening as the sun is going down. Varenna may be the most picturesque town on the lake, its steep winding alleys lined with charming homes, flowering balconies and lace-curtained windows. Just above it is the ancient castle where Theodolinda, Queen of the Lombards, is said to have died in the 7th century. Two famed villas to visit here are Villa Cipressi, with terraced gardens cascading right down to the shores, and Villa Monastero, a true showcase.
