We travelled to Varenna as a group of 5 friends to stay in this apartment on Lake Como and we were not disappointed. Luigi was great telling us lots of tips of where to go and what to do and met us at the train station, the apartment was a 5 mins walk away with the most incredible views of the lake. Located right near the car ferry stop and away from the main centre was perfect. It is only a 5-10min walk to the main Varenna town and this side felt quieter and was perfect for us. The apartment was well-equipped with all necessary kitchen utensils/cooking equipment, wifi, clean towels, linen. Close to a few places to eat as well. Overall it was very clean and comfortably slept 5. The sleeper couch mattress was very hard which was the only negative point. Would stay here again.

“Great location & wonderful views!”

My husband, daughter and I spent 2 days in beautiful Varenna during our 2 week vacation
to Italy. This was our first trip to Italy and the apartment was one of the nicest
accommodations we had during our visit. We found the apartment very clean and
comfortable with a fully equipped kitchen and everything you would need for a short or
longer term stay. The location was excellent. Walking distance to everything in town, a short walk to the train station and right across from the ferry. The owner, Luigi was very prompt in answering all of our questions during the booking of the apartment and he
greeted us at the train station upon our arrival and walked us to the apartment.
There were literally windows in every room and the views
were gorgeous! We would highly recommend this apartment for anyone who has
the good fortune to visit this magical and picturesque village!

What an enjoyable holiday! We were met at the station by Luigi who escorted us to the apartment 5 minutes away. It was all we hoped, clean, bright, airy with views of the lake and ferry station. The bedroom was very comfortable, there is wifi with good signal and a small kitchen we made breakfasts and pasta suppers in. The neighbours were very friendly. It is 10 minutes walk to some excellent restaurants and 15 mins to the 2 local food shops and the beautiful gardens by the lake. Highly recommended apartment in a lovely village.

“Perfect Location, excellent view”
Reviewed 30 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

My husband, teenage daughter and I, just spent 2 nights in Varenna after a two week trip in Italy. It was a very relaxing way to end the trip. The apartment is very clean, we'll equipped, spacious, and the view is breathtaking from every window. It was an easy train ride from Milan and Luigi was there to meet us at the train station and take us to the apartment. He gave us all the details we needed to know about the apartment as well as some very helpful tips about the area. The location is perfect. It's very close to the train station, the ferry and restaurants.
It was my daughter's birthday and Luigi suggested a restaurant named" Varenna Mon Amour"
It was the best meal we had in Italy. It is a family owned restaurant and the Husband is the chef and his wife does all the baking. Fabulous!!!. We would recommend this apartment and would absolutely Stay there again.
