Warmest, loveliest place! The staff were so friendly and helpful, the apartment was beautiful, the view from the balcony was incredible. We couldn't have wished for anything more!

“The Best Place We Stayed in Europe”
Reviewed 12 January 2015 for a stay in September 2014

person found this review helpful

From the moment we arrived, the owner Simone and his wife made us feel very comfortable. The studio overlooks Lake Como with stunning views from our balcony. Morning greeted us with a full breakfast, cooked to order in their companion restaurant, Bar Il Molo. They even prepared a continental breakfast for us on our early morning departure day. We had several meals at their restaurant and were very impressed. The apartment even has a clothes washer. Watching the sun rise and set from the balcony was an event. We would gladly go back to spend more time. It was the best place we stayed on our five week trip to Europe.

“Decent”
Reviewed 3 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

To be honest I found some of the reviews of this b&b to be a touch generous. Having said that, it is certainly a nice place to stay and worth considering. The owners are very kind and try very hard to make your stay a comfortable one. There is a little balcony to sit at with a view of the coast of Varenna and looks to the north of the lake. One word of warning, the sloping roof does impact on the amount of headroom so you'll be ducking down to get in and out of bed. Separate to the apartment, but still in the same building, is a small private spa room for use by guests for 60euro includes a double jacuzzi, small sauna and a cold water pool. Breakfast was good. Varenna is a beautiful town and absolutely not to be missed.

“No better place to stay in Varenna”
Reviewed 23 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Everything about this B and B was great. The owners are delightful and helpful, the apartment is lovely, Bar Il Molo is wonderful (the best breakfast in Varenna for cheap). The views of the lake are just great. I would absolutely recommend Divina Vita!

“Perfect choice”
Reviewed 22 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Traveling with a friend, we were looking for a space more than a hotel room with two beds separated by a few inches! After months of research we found this place, and it could not have been more perfect. We took a taxi from the train station. The taxi driver had difficulty finding the address, so asked a local and quickly Simone appeared at the taxi and carried our suitcases down to the entrance, and up the flight of stairs to the apartment. He sat with us and explained how to get around Varenna, made recommendations for restaurants and lake tours, and made us feel very welcome. Each morning, breakfast began at 9 (included in the price) and Sylvia would greet us and ask about our day. The view seated outside looking at the lake was breathtaking. The breakfast was fabulous, including coffee, fresh squeezed orange juice and choice of eggs, omelette, granola and fruit. The morning we left early they packed a sandwich for us to take for the train. The room was comfortable, and had a million dollar view.

We debated about whether to stay closer to where the ferry was located, or near where the town square where Divini Vita was. We are so glad we chose the area away from the ferry. The walk to the ferry was beautiful, with a nice path right along the lake, and took maybe 5 minutes (though, we stopped so often to take pictures and enjoy the scenery, we didn't often actually take 5 minutes!) The area near the ferry was louder with the activity of the ferry, and lost the closeness to the water with the traffic running through to the ferry line, and the adjacent playground for ferry goers. We actually didn't spend any time in that area except for taking the ferry. Definitely enjoyed the location of Divini Vita better, tucked in with a view of the lake, and outdoor cafes and shops nearby. (the town square right up the hill, with a post office, and local activity.) Quaint little place. Varenna is so much more of a relaxing area than Bellagio. We loved the area, and the people, and the convenience of the train mad Varenna the best choice.
