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.


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.

Great location and villa grounds

  • 4 of 5

The villa is excellently located, few minutes walk from station and waterfront. We had Villa Clara at the bottom and our friends had Villa Angelo above us. Really reccommend if you want to go with more people but still want some privacy. It was lovely to be able to wander up and down between each others villas.

The garden space outside of Villa Clara is very spacious and lovely to relax peacefully in but also for our young children to play in as there was a slide. As Villa Clara was at the bottom our villa was comfortably cool even though the weather was very hot.

The 2 bedrooms gave us flexibility in sleeping arrangements as one of the rooms can fit in a double bed, a single bed and a cot with plenty of space.

  • 5 of 5

Owner was very welcoming......apartment was lovely with everything we needed,..lots of clean towels, etc. easy walk to MANY restaurant choices and to the beach and ferry. Owner let us use the washing machine which was a lovely mid trip bonus for us! this is the ground floor unit with 2 more apartments above, i don't know if its possible for a larger group to rent out multiple apts.....part of our group hiked to the top of the hill to see the castle

Stay here

  • 5 of 5

The location could not be better. Walk everywhere but a quiet peaceful retreat when you need to relax. The apartment was clean and well cared for, and roomy enough for 2 couples like us or a family. We took the ferry several times to visit other towns, but came back for dinner in Varenna. I can recommend L'Orso restaurant near the ferry as well as Il Molo and Varenna Mon Amour. The train location is excellent. Take the train to Tirano then into Switzerland for a lovely day trip.The Bernina Express as well as the regular Swiss train is easily accessed from Tirano. There are many guidebooks, maps and recommendations at Villa Clara for your use.

Great location, lovely garden secure parking

  • 5 of 5

A perfect home base for exploring Lake Como and nearby areas. This apartment was clean, spacious and comfortable with 2 bathrooms and had all of the amenities in a "home away from home" (including wifi, satellite TV, etc.) but for us the real bonus was the location, the security of the garage parking and the darling private large garden where ,weather permitting early March, took our meals. My husband and I like to have a car when we travel in Italy and were pleased to discover just how close this place was to everything we needed. It was easy walk to the center of Varenna (and it's charming walkway overlooking the lake), the ferry boat dock and the Varenna train station. This allowed for us and our friends to be independent as we explored the area together whether it was to take a ferry to go shopping in Bellagio (or to see one of the famous villas), or to take the train to Milan (our friends even took a fast train to Venice for one night) or to meet for coffee or a drink at one of the cafes in Varenna. We had a lot of privacy since the owners were only around on the weekends, but marilena, who lives in the village center, was always nearby if we needed anything. Great place. Would definitely return.
