We booked this apartment months in advance. After arriving in Italy we received a notification that "due to circumstances beyond our control, we are unable to honor your rental". Another property was offered and used. A disappointment not to have washer and dryer, and a waterfront view for our weeks stay. Even more disappointing was finding another renter in the...

We spent September 26-28, the first three nights of our three-week trip to Italy, at Maria's House. It was a perfect way to begin our journey. It is in a great location and was very comfortable for two people. The apartment was very clean, quaint with family antiques, and well stocked with appliances, some of which we used (washer, tea...

We stayed at Maria's house as a family of 4 for a week in August 2016 and thoroughly enjoyed our holiday. Varenna is a beautiful place and Maria's house is in a perfect location for all amenities. Outside the door are steps down to the lake shore (they are a bit steep so probably not suited to those less mobile)....

We reserved and put a deposit on Aninna's house for one week, 3 months before traveling and reconfirmed one week before leaving the US. Two days before arriving in Varenna we were notified that it was not available for no other reason than It was beyond their control. I was offered Casa de Messa at the same price. I agreed...

We stayed at Maria's house for four nights in July. Maria and her husband were excellent communicators during the booking process. They very kindly met us at the train station, drove us to the villa, helped us up the stairs with the luggage and showed us around the apartment. They also made some recommendations for eating out - they were...

We spent 4 weeks at Maria's House, using it as a home base during a stay in Northern Italy. The apartment was a perfect size, was perfectly located and had perfect owners. We were able to cook meals in the kitchen, enjoy a large living space and comfortable bed and shower room. We were within easy access to several restaurants,...

We stayed here for a week in August. The apartment lived up to expectations. We could easily walk to the ferry port and railway station. Maria met us from the station when we arrived. There are lots of restaurants and bars around. Varenna is a good centre to base yourself in. It was easy to catch a ferry to Bellagio....

We stay in Annina's House for 7 nights in July. Perfect location in Varenna. It was central to everything with wanted to do in Lake Como. There was plenty of choice for eating out. The apartment had everything you needed, even a washing machine and clothes rack. If you wanted to cook everything was there. Would not hesitate to recommend...

My husband, my son and I stayed in Maria's House on our last visit to Italy. I did not write a review back then because it wasn't listed on Trip Advisor then.

Maria's house was a gem. It is only steps from St.Giorgio's square and a just a short stroll to the waterfront. The ferry terminal is about a 10 minute stroll away. The place is well furnished with everything you might want and has a warm, homey feel to it. We were there for only a few days but felt right...
