“Don't stay at a hotel, must stay experience”

The most amazing villa in Varenna. Direct water front access, beautiful private gardens, amazing views from 3 different levels . The owners meet you and make you welcome then leave you to have a true Italian experience. Take the time to head to the supermarket and cook breakfast, eat on the balcony and watch the ferries of Lake Como. We spent hours in the sun on the large terrace watching the world go by. I will never stay anywhere else again on Lake Como. The private lift makes this villa access able to everyone

“Fabulous Villa”

We stayed in Ca Livia in Varenna in May 2012 for 2 weeks. This is a fabulous Villa for a holiday in Varenna. The location is perfect and right on the lake – halfway between the main town with its delightful restaurants and cafes and the ferry terminal for access to Bellagio etc all within an easy few minute walk. The train station is within a 10min walk. The Villa Ca Livia has been tastefully renovated which includes a modern lift to take guests & their luggage from road level down to the first level which has 2 bedrooms and further down to another level of living/kitchen (with wood fire). Even though the Villa is in the middle of town it is surrounded by the most beautiful gardens – very private and secluded. Access to the town can be either upper entry (road level) or through the garden gate to the lakeside walkway. The hosts were terrific and nothing was too much trouble. We look forward to visiting again would love to come back again perhaps with friends – 2 couples could comfortably survive in Ca Livia.

My wife, children, grandchildren, family and friends have enjoyed our stay at Ca Livia for three consecutive summers (August and September, 2011, 2012 and 2013) and look forward to our return next summer. The house, its grounds, superb location directly on Lake Como in the charming village of Varenna combine to make our stay at Ca Livia a truly enjoyable experience enhanced by the care and attention that the owners have extended to us and the house. Having travelled extensively all my life, Varenna and Ca Livia remain very special places for our family. Georges Robichon, Montreal, Canada

A family who travel to Italy frequently had a wonderful time at Ca Livia in honor of their 25th anniversary. Three separate apartments which make up this beautiful garden house right on Lago di Como. Nice terraced gardens and a private gate leading to the lovely lakeside walkway to the centro. We have always dreamed of staying at a little house in Varenna and this was a dream come true!
