Our week in Casa Mary was totally splendid. The apartment is immaculate with everything you need and the views of Lago Como from two sides of the main room are stunning. Spending a week here was great as we developed a wonderful routine of trips on the lake either by ferry or car followed by a sundowner in Cafe Varenna in Vechia Varenna. Sheer bliss, we'll be back!

This is a wonderful apartment. The views of the lake and hills are stunning, the position is perfect - right by the ferries and a lovely walk along the coastal path to town. There are bars and restaurants on your doorstep and the station is 5 mins away. The wi-fi works well, the apartment is immaculate and very quiet. To top it all, the terrace is fabulous. And the owners are delightful, coming to meet you at the station, and then running us back. Be warned, it is up 60 steps - but that's how you get the views and means you can eat more gelato!
We (family of 4) stayed here for 4 nights. It was such a lovely, clean apartment with all the necessary amenities. From every window there is a spectacular view of the Lake. It is perfectly placed for easy access to the ferry and train station.
The shops, cafés and restaurants are all just a short stroll away. The nearest supermarket is a 10 minute ferry ride away in Menaggio. There is a little playground just around the corner which was perfect for our children!
It is so quiet and peaceful here and we enjoyed every moment. Andrea and her parents are just wonderful hosts, they even picked us up from the station. They couldn't do enough to help and in true Italian hospitality they made us feel so welcome! We certainly hope to return again.
My wife, Karen, found this place while searching on Trip Advisor. We had some idea of where Varenna was, and liked the prospect of staying right on the Lake Como. The whole experience, however, exceeded our expectations. The apartment had a great location, spacious, clean, adequately equipped. The owners were pleasant, available and helpful. Varenna is small, quiet, quaint, with a good variety of restaurants, magnificent gardens, a ten minute boat ride to Bellagio, Menagio and other adorable lake communities. Do not expect to see a supermarket. If you plan to cook, you need to supply yourself at a nearby larger town. Varenna has a tiny grocery store and a single, expensive delicatessen. Period.
However, don't let that stop you. We had an exceptional vacation there (4 days)
We were met at the train station by the lovely owners and delivered to the apartment. We were very impressed by the service and location. Lots of local information provided which was really useful. Would we stay here again? Sure would!
