“Your own private terrace on the lake. Wow!”
Reviewed 4 July 2018 for a stay in May 2018

Varenna is a very special place and il giardino sul lago is a perfect location. Stroll out your door along the lake, sit on a bench and enjoy the breathtaking scenery. Get a mid lake pass and explore Bellagio or Villa Carlotta. Take a cooking class up in the mountains, hike up to Vezio Castle for spectacular views. Julia is a wonderful and gracious host and made our stay memorable. The most relaxing vacation my wife and I have ever taken.

“Amazing location”
Reviewed 13 June 2018 for a stay in May 2018

A warm and friendly welcome from Julia and Alfie. The apartment is simple but comfortable but it’s all about the location. The view from the patio over Lake Como is stunning and has to be the best spot in Varenna, eating breakfast looking at the view was wonderful. Varenna was our favourite spot in the Italian Lakes it’s such a charming small village but has plenty of places to eat and drink. The restaurant opposite the apartment is lovely with excellent service. Make time to visit Villa Monastero the gardens are wonderful and it’s very good value. We took the ferry to Bellagio which is worth visiting but for our money not a patch on Varenna. Julia was extremely helpful and we look forward to coming back one day.

“Relaxing paradise”
Reviewed 8 June 2018 for a stay in June 2018

We enjoyed our short stay at this bnb with beautiful lake front views which is private from the rest of the town. It’s a great place to rejuvenate and the breakfast provided by Julie was lovely. We’d been to so many busy places it was a great place to relax and recharge. I wish I could stay a month

“You will not find a better place to stay in Varenna!”
Reviewed 31 May 2018 for a stay in May 2018

Julie's hospitality was highlight of our trip. She went above and beyond expectations to make sure our experience in Varenna was one we'd struggle to forget.
Her place is located on the edge of the lake and I cannot even begin to describe what having breakfast in her garden is like on a sunny, blue-skied morning. The entire experience was unforgettable and I cannot recommend her place enough.
Alfie, her dog, was friendly and we enjoyed having him around each day.
Would stay here again in a heartbeat!
