“Most Magical Place to Stay in Varenna!”
Reviewed 24 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

There is nothing else like it in Varenna! The Villa Monti is a gorgeous family owned historic villa with a breathtaking view that has been beautifully renovated with tender loving care. We stayed at the Villa Monti in the Geranium apartment and wish we had stayed two. I loved loved loved our balcony --- so much so that the attached picture is now the screensaver on my computer. When my day gets stressful, I look at the photo and remember the view and it brings me peace. The balcony felt quite private --- a world onto ourselves. The car park is a short distance away. The beautiful Villa Monastero is just across the road. A walk to town and there are shops, restaurants and cafes. Varenna is a gem of a town --- from which you can take the ferry to Bellagio and Menaggio. Diego is a gracious, gentle and kind host. He got us a reservation to the best restaurant in town, La Vista (1 Michelin Star), on short notice. Delicious! He will also tell you all the highlights of the area. This is not a hotel. This is a rented apartment with a full service kitchen -- and we love that. If you need anything, towels, for example, you ask. I believe if you need mid week cleaning, it would be available for a fee--- I think. We needed towels, not cleaning. I washed my own dishes. I made breakfast most mornings and we ate it on our beautiful balcony. The views from the bedroom were gorgeous too. The grounds are beautiful. There is central air and a small pool. There is good Wi-fi. Oh, it is just a magical place! Thank you Diego!

Liked best: View! Balcony! Beauty of the property. Quality of renovation. Comfort of the apartment.
Liked least: Lots of stairs though we wouldn't have minded it if it weren't 94-97 degrees outside! It was abnormally hot for this area of Italy.
