Hotel Villa Cipressi
Ranked #3 of 6 Hotels in Varenna
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 22 June 2012

my wife and i recently stayed for 2 nights .Before we travelled we checked out the website and tripadvisor so we knew what we were letting ourselves in for and upon arrival these expectations we instantly surpassed . Make no mistake this is no 5 star luxury hotel with hot and cold running everything its rough around the edges in places theres no room service , no pool, no tea or coffee making facilities in the room ,no mini bar, no sun loungers and the rooms need some serious refurbishment so that the glamour and romance of the outside is reflected on the inside. This is a 3 star hotel but having said that it really is a beautiful building in a stunning location, for us it was the staff that made it everyone we came across was so friendly and helpful. The rooms were basic and ours (302) had air con which was a god send considering it was 32 degrees C outside im not sure all rooms do have air con. The beds were very comfortable but the pillows were not so a couple of restless nights but you cant have everything can you. Breakfast was ok nothing spectacular and was served on a small terrace on the other side of the hotel. We would love to stay again and next time we will try the restaurant which looked amazing . Many thanks to all the staff who looked after us so well

Room Tip: room 302 looked out over the lake and the courtyard

What a great place. The Lake Como views are great. The rooms are large and clean, and every staff member I dealt with, both at the front desk at in the restaurant, was friendly and extremely helpful. The gardens are beautiful...not too "up tight" and overly trimmed, but very authentic feeling with rocky terraces and the biggest magnolia I have ever seen. There was a wedding while I was there, but it was small, classy, and not loud at all. If anything, it added to the ambiance. Would definitely stay again.

Room Tip: Get one with a Lake view.

We had our wedding and reception at the Villa Cipressi on Monday 4 June, 2012. Yes, just a few days ago but it was amazing from beginning to end! We only had a small group join us - just 11 adults and two children in all - but this is what we wanted and we could not believe that we were fortunate enough to have found this incredible villa on Lake Como which would accommodate such a small group.

Villa Cipressi is a very special place, the villa itself is so striking and it is set in gorgeous gardens - we married outside on the lower terrace and then ate our sumptuous wedding breakfast on the higher terrace outside the restaurant - the scenery was breathtaking and everyone (even us, and we'd seen it before) were all blown away! This place is like a film set and is easily the most beautiful of the villas on the lake (yes, even Villa Del Balbianello - which is lovely - but Villa Cipressi is still the best).

The food, from the antipasto through to the four course meal followed by the dessert buffet were all just fantastic…and the wedding cake was simply amazing (my new husband was just very disappointed that he only managed to get one slice - it went so quick because everyone thought it so delicious!).

And of course, I can't forget to mention the service - Davide and his staff (particularly our waiters Massimo and Gianni) were just wonderful and we can only thank them for a perfect day and evening!

We also had Sally from WeddingBox Lake Como as our wedding planner - we cannot recommend her highly enough! She will take away the stress of making sure your paperwork is perfectly in order and does so much to ensure the day runs smoothly. Varenna itself is a gem of a find, like a little village but with a number of fantastic places to eat - and a great place to base yourself to see other parts of the lake. We, and our guests, had such an amazing weekend and if I could I would do it all over again tomorrow!

If you are considering Villa Cipressi for your wedding - I cannot recommend it highly enough.

Do visit the gardens in this hotel. You don't have to be a guest to have access to them.

We came across them by accident while we were wandering round the town, paid a few euros and had them to ourselves.

They are terraced with most of the plants named. There are seats dotted here and there where you can sit and drink it all in.

Very peaceful with wonderful views over the lake.

We had our wedding reception at the Villa Cipressi last year. From start to finish it was fantastic. We had guests from Ireland and Italy and everyone had a great time.
The food was amazing and our wedding cake was amazing (pity I only got one slice before it was ravaged by the rest of the guests).
And you could not get better scenery. Varenna is a very special place.
We want to thank the hotel manager Davide and all the staff for a fantastic day.
