We arrived by train from Milan and found the Orange House quite easily after a 5 minute downhill walk from the train station. The owners Piero and Maria were waiting for us when we arrived. They were both very warm and welcoming, and very eager to get us acquainted with Varenna. They offered us maps, restaurant suggestions, and help with...

After reading the good reviews the Orange House received on TripAdvisor, we decided to book it for our stay in Varenna. After our stay, we have to agree with all those good reviews. The location is pretty close to the train station (don't worry, you can't hear the train) and is a beautiful stroll away from the ferry and the...

We agree with all the positive comments posted to date. Mara and Piero are exceptional hosts, thoughtful, kind and very welcoming. Mara’s breakfasts are huge, delicious and well presented. Piero’s English is good and he was extremely helpful, providing us with lots of tourist information and maps.

I would have to agree with the previous Reviews in several instances: (1) Very convenient to train station (but a little tricky to find; (2) Decent - but pleasant walk -- to the village. (3) Piero is a warm and friendly host, but is not available on the premises to consult whenever you need help - but he'll give you...

I booked the Orange House B&B for 3 nights after reading favorable reviews on TripAdvisor and Rick Steves. We were very happy with our room (very clean!), the location, and especially our hosts. Mara made us a very nice breakfast every morning and Piero helped us with brochures, maps, directions, and excellent restaurant choices in Varenna. They just go out...

We stayed at Orange House for three nights based on previous reviews and we would highly recommend it for a stay in the Lake Como area, particularly if you are travelling by train. It was at least half the price of our other accommodations during our three weeks in Italy. Clean, comfortable rooms, good location (a short walk from the...

Was a bit difficult to find to begin with, but the restaurant on the corner was happy to point us in the right direction, which was just across the road! Piero (owner with his wife Mara) was waiting for us on the corner and welcomed us. It is perfectly located, 5 minutes from the train station and 5 minutes from...

We loved Orange House! The location couldn't be better - a block from both the train and the ferry and a short heavenly walk along a lakeside path to town. Our room and bath were bright and spotless. The owners speak little English but are so welcoming and provide folders of materials on navigating the local area. And the breakfast...

We loved this immaculately clean, peaceful room close to everything in Varenna, and the closest room to the train station. The friendly owners met us on the corner to show us the way, and provided fabulous homecooked tarts and other treats for breakfast. Our upstairs room had a view of the alps, and the pleasing sound of the river below...

Though delinquent in writing our review, we stayed at The Orange House on a 2-week stint in Europe in 2006. It was our last two nights and the cheapest stay of our trip. Though a little tricky to find at first, the accomodations and the hosts could not have been more wonderful!! Piero went to a great extent to find...
