Way too small for four adults

The living area consists of a small kitchen with four chairs..a small loveseat is shoved in the corner...cable tv with no English speaking channels

Owner's Response: The clients booked the apartment on january 3rd so more than 9 months in advance ,when a lot of apartments where still available in internet , they began early december asking me about this apartment , after after 4 weeks exchanging mails , considering position photos of this unit they wanted to book this apartment. 1 week before coming they wrote me to add another sofa because only one was not enough , and because all 4 need to read staying sitting on the sofa in the evening , i answered them it was no possible to add a second sofa but only 2 additional armchairs which had been added.not in all the apartments its possible to add a second sofa . I also offered another apartment with a larger livingroom and a sofa for 8 people.They refused and answered it was fine for them to spend the 2 weeks in the apartment they already booked. As abt the foreign channels news there are hundreds available, the owner showed them how to use the remote controls for the television ,informations in english are provided in the informations book with a list of the channels like bbc, cnn, sky news , cnbc ...french and german channels also. I dont understand why in 2 weeks these clients never called the owner nor me asking for some informations. I saw them twice because the airline lost thier luggages , they never asked me any help. At the end ...why they booked this apartment and 9 months in advance and after 4 weeks considering photos maps and informations of it?I have all the correspondence.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed being so close to the train station, the town centre and the foreshore. Apartment was cute but being on the ground floor we felt somewhat claustrophobic even though the bedrooms were a good size. There is no real living area but that worked for us as we went out to enjoy the local food and area. Having a washing machine was great and the two ensuites were a bonus.

The only downer was the wifi only worked in the living area and one of the bedrooms

Very disappointed

  • 3 of 5

Although it is in a great location, with the water front and the train station just few meters away, I do not recommend this place. We had chosen this place especially because it has a garage. The welcome was brief and cold probably due to arriving later than scheduled due to delays of our plane flight. To our big disappointment we were infested with ants the morning after our arrival and this was not due to any garbage left on the premises. The owner was contacted and sent the cleaning lady to spray the premises. The owner did admit that they have a problem with ants in the rainy season. To our astonishment, the cleaning lady said that this was the first time that this happened and was so surprise to see so many ants....contradictory. We were infested with ants. This could have been avoided, if the owner had sprayed before our arrival. The owner never again tried to contact us to see if we were OK. Since the owner does not speak English very well, there is a spoke person ( owner operator) who communicates with the clients and the booking is done through this person. I had dealt with this spoke person all through the reservation and bookings sending several e-mails. I did expect this person to contact us either by coming to see us or by a simple e-mail to see if we were well settled. No sign, indifference. Since the owner was contacted, the spoke person should have known and communicate with us.

Varenna is a beautiful place to visit but I do not recommend anyone to stay in this place during the rainy season.

I do not know what Rick Steves would say about this

Owner's Response: This client never called me , never emailed me during her stay, only contacted me several weeks after she left, also if the client knew exactly where i live in the centre of varenna as indicated on my own website .I was and am always available in case of need. If clients dont call me, i cannot imagine they need my help . She called the owner, he sent the cleaner straight away with some strong products , also available in the apartment but she refused to use them because preferred natural products which do nothign against the ants. She refused also the help of the owner and the cleaner to check all the apartment. When the cleaner arrived found several open bags of rests of food open in the kitchen , the client didnt respect my written recomendations, included in the available informations book, to keep food in the fridge and to take away the garbage to the trush every day otherwise ..its like to call ants.The cleaner found , after the clients left, again several open bags of rest of food ,usually all the clients take them away and even every day . At least i am really surprised this client found again my contacts details only after several week she left and not when she was here , may be also because the ants suddenly left when she was there... I knew quite nothing about this sudden presence of ants , i still dont understand why she never call me ,never emailed me during her stay and why refused the help of the cleaner and of the owner who answered and arrived straight away and why she refused more assistence of the owner to check all the apartment...i could also offer another apartment..at the end the owner and i are really not responsible of sudden presence of ants if the garbage is not taken away and if the food is not kept in the fridge.

Great location

  • 3 of 5

Although this was a great location and convenient to the train station and for walking into town, to the ferry and just about everything in Varenna, we did not enjoy our stay because there was no heat. Thankfully there were nice warm blankets, but it was so cold that we stayed in the apartment very little, instead choosing to get outside where it was warmer and brighter.

Owner's Response: The Heating is in all the villa!! we rent it also in the winter !! we could not have rent the villa if there was no heat.!! the owner angelo met the clients, showed everything and also the heat and how to manage with it, recommended to call him for any help, the client never called the owner, never called me, if the clients forgot how to manage with the heating and didnt want to call the owner and me and preferred to stay freezing it's because she preferred to stay in the cold instead to call the owner or me for some help because they forgot how to use button of the heating.

GREAT LOCATION

  • 4 of 5

PROS:

You cannot find a better location for visiting Lake Como. You can walk to everywhere.

Having a garage available for use is a real plus because there is very little parking in Varenna.

The boiler and Wi-Fi router are in the apartment above. The electricity went off in the apartment above and we had no heat, hot water or Wi-Fi. We called the owner and within 15 minutes he had the electricity turned back on in the apartment above. We were very impressed with such quick response.

It is extremely quite.

CONS:

As I stated above, the Wi-Fi router is in the apartment above so the signal is weak.

The washing machine is outside and while it is covered the area in front of the wash machine is not covered. So if it's raining while you're trying to wash cloths, one person has to stand over the person putting the cloths in and taking them out of the washing machine with a number of umbrella.

It was extremely difficult to get the burners on the stove to hold a flame. Normally after a few seconds of heating, the burner will hold the flame. But that was not the case with these burners. I took almost as long to get the flame to hold as it did to cook something. One of the burners would never hold the flame.

The CONS are minor compared to the PROS. I would definitely go back to stay at this property again.
