“Excellent apartment, beautiful town, welcoming host.”

The apartment is in a great location beside the harbour with fantastic views across the Lake. It is perfectly situated about 5 mins walk from the town centre, a walk which is along the water's edge with tremendous views at every turn. Although fairly basic the apartment is very comfortable and clean with everything that you need. We were met by the owner's mother, a lovely woman who gave us a very warm welcome and met us off the train. And the owner was equally friendly when he took us back to the train at the end of the holiday.

Varenna is a quiet little town with lots of charm and plenty of eating places. It is a great base to visit the rest of the lakes and is very easy to get to because of the train station. Because of the walk into town plus the fact that the apartment is on the 2nd floor, it might not suit those with more limited mobility but was ideal for my wife and I.

Fantastic apartment by Lake Como with astounding views and a wonderful owner! We loved everything about it, even being on the 4th floor overlooking the harbor. Wish we could go there every year!

Our stay at Varenna was just perfect from the moment we arrive at the train station and Andrea's mom was there to greet us, she was charming speaks very little English but enough to get by she offered us to drive us to the apartment which was 3 min away by car, came up with us, ( there is no elevator and is in the third floor , but who doesn't walk when in Italy ? .. So it was ok with us ... We arrive at the apartment and she had a welcome gift for us , a precious towel that said welcome to lake commo , great touch .. Show us around and the apartment was great just like you see in the picture it was late at night, so we couldn't see the view, until the next morning and it is just stunning , from every window in the apartment you can see the lake and the mountains is just beautiful. The kitchen is well equipped and
The room big enough, the shower a little on the small side but the bathroom was big , the only negative is that there is no wifi, spoke to the owner and he said he is in the process of getting it. The location is wonderful too just walk downstairs and at 2 min is the ferry station that takes you to the other towns around the lake, we got a ticket for a day is better that way and went to Menaggio and Bellagio this last one you can't miss it , is just beautiful we had lunch there and did a little shopping , we also went to Cadenabia and Lecco. Apart from that when you get back to Varenna, is just a 5 minute walk to restaurants by the lake and a 3 min walk to go to the town of Varenna and the piazza, the church and some hotels, is really beautiful , the food very good , and don't forget to go in the afternoon for an appetitive and sit on the terrace of the Hotel Du Lac the view is incredible and the service too, the server is a British woman very lovely and just don't forget to try the Aperol Spritz, with the little sandwiches that they serve is delicious . Overall it was a great experience. At the end Andrea's mom came to take us to the train station.... Love the woman so beautiful and elegant . Would definitely go again.
