In the heart of Varenna's old quarter, just little steps from the water and the main square, the apartment looks onto a picturesque cobblestone pedestrian-only archway leading straight to the beach and the lakeside with the beautiful pubs, restaurants, shops and art galleries.

The Lombardy region

The beauty of the place is clearly evident in its ancient buildings, its romantic views, its impressive nature. A distinctive feature of Varenna is the mildness of the climate, which is proved by the olive trees, the cypress trees and other botanic species typical of the lake and is due to its special exposure: leant to the mountain, the village is facing south and west, so it is sunny and warm till late in the evening.

As well as beautiful views and restaurants, Lake Como also offers activities such as waterskiing, windsurfing, trekking and cycling.

All of Varenna's main attractions are only a few minutes' walk away.

Villa Cipressi: This architectural complex consists of a park and buildings from various periods, and is near Lecco and the central lake. The gardens are also open to the public.

Villa Monastero: Converted from a 13th Century convent, this congress centre has terraces and walkways overlooking the lake as well as beautiful statues.

Castello di Vezio: This castle is found overlooking Varenna, and although it is reachable by car, you would miss out on a beautiful walk through breathtaking scenery. The castle is a small collection of houses carved in the rock, and may date back to the year 1,000. It is currently home to about 50 people, and faces the main piazza. Nature-lovers can also be taken on a tour to see the birds of prey living in the castle; owls, buzzards, and falcons among others. There is also the "Feudo" restaurant, where you can enjoy local wine and specialities.

The train station is a short walk (800 metres from Maria's house). The passenger and car ferries are also minutes away, reaching the exquisite villages, gardens and villas that dot the lakeshore. From Varenna's central position one can easily get to all other locations on the lake, such as Menaggio and Bellagio, the most elegant and international town of the Lake of Como, located just between the two branches of the lake. The lake of Como itself and the nearby area offer the best in skiing, windsurfing, hiking and bicycling. Maria's House is available 12 months of the year, and rates are seasonal.
