I requested a room for Sept. 25 and 26 in 2011, on Sept 21st of that year, just three days out. That same day they sent an email confirming a "double bath, TV, beautiful lake view...". We arrive at the train station in Varenna and hire a cab to take us to their B&B Fontelago. I then dial their phone...

We stayed at the other property that Maria and Pietro own, called Annina's House. It was perfect! Maria and Pietro met us at the Varenna train station and took us (2 min by car) to the apartment. They are a very nice couple, and though they do not speak much English, are extremely friendly, warm and gracious people. This apartment...

We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived. Not only was it a lovely, fully equipped apartment, but the location couldn't have been better (for the price). Sure, we could have spent 3-4 times as much per night on a hotel room with balcony overlooking the lake. However this apartment was located on the #1 most picturesque sidestreet in Varenna. Centrally...

studio apartment with washer and dryer as well as cooking facilities. It was in an excellent location to the walk along the lake and a short walk to the train station even though the owners met us at the train station and transported us to the apartment at the beginning and end of our stay. We loved that we could...

We were not able to rent Maria's house but stayed in her other property. It was very small, but very well organized and was well equiped and very comfortable for our weeks stay in June 2011. The location is perfect - just 40 steps down to the beautiful promenade of Lake Varenna. We could sit on our little terrace and...

We stayed at Maria's House the week between Christmas and New Year's and we really enjoyed it! The town was just beautiful and very romantic, quiet and slow in this off season, and so evocative of the days before tourists overran these lakeside villages. All the villas were closed, but some shops were open and we visited Bellagio and Menaggio,...

We enjoyed staying in Marias House very much in late September. The apartment was very comfortable, spacious and well equipped, including a washing machine. There was some noise from the road and one of the other apartments at night. The owners, Maria and Pietro were very friendly and picked us up from the railway station on arrival. Be aware there...
