The Lake Como region

Varenna is located in Lake Como area (Lombardy, not Emilia Romagna). Our summers are wonderful with a pleasant breeze. July is the hottest month ( 26 / 30 C) , Springtime starts in March.

Winters are bright with lots of sun shine and nearly no rain but chilly, it may snow, but snow vanishes shortly near the lake and stays on the mountain tops. Lake Como has been an important through way for people coming and going north, pre-romanic churches, medieval castles and look out towers are still to been seen.

Varenna

Varenna lies exactly halfway down the eastern shore of the lake on the Lecco branch. It was built on a rock prominently overshadowed by a steep mountain, at the top of which you can make out the outline of an old castle.


Varenna is an unusual and beautiful place: on the one hand, it is a lively and modern tourist resort, the centre for all lake ferries, and on the other it preserves the remains of a medieval past which is one of the best conserved in the area. Lovely and medieval Varenna is a charming town on the less trafficky side of the lake and it offers great views, beauty and relaxation.

A beautiful thing to do is to walk the lake front promenade – it's an ever-changing, flowery and romantic walk – called "Passarella". The Passarella connects the town centre to the ferry boat harbour. Along the walk you'll pass villas, gardens and boats.

The harbour is a typical past times fishermen resort with pastel coloured fishermen's houses and a small beach.

Head up the hill to Piazza San Giorgio the main square in town. There are several churches on the square including the Chiesa Di San Giorgio with its belfry. Inside you'll find a polyptych of San Giorgio (saint) by Giovan Pietro Brentani - Saint Giorgio, the Virgin and Saint Peter, a polyptych by Sigismondo de Magistris (Baptism of Christ) and a carved altarpiece . Varenna also has a castle that dates to 1300 – the Castello Di Vezio. The castle is located on a hill above the village. Once at the top, check out your view of Lake Como! There are gardens, a falconer , a drawbridge, a tower and there's a small café up here too!

There are two spots for taking time to "smell the roses"….the Villa Cipressi and the Villa Monastero fabulous architecture, gardens, terracing, statuary, views, pathways, grottoes. For those who enjoy Guinness Records, The Fiumelatte / (milky river), the shortest river in Italy, is just one km south of Varenna. This river (800 feet) falls from Grigna mountain peaks in a noisy, foamy, white rush to the lake below, only 6 months of the year (from April to September).

Stop at the tourist office and you can get a map that takes you from the main square to the Fiumelatte, on to the castle and then back to town. This is a wonderful town!

“Fenomenale”

Reviewed 3 Apr 2014

Splendida villa, vicinissima alla piazza principale del paese. Ottime rifiniture. Accoglienza cortese e professionale. Spero di tornare presto. It's LOVELY

Grazie mille, Vi aspettiamo alla prossima visita. Saluti Lo staff di Villa Central Varenna

“Location spettacolare”

Reviewed 24 Jan 2013

Perfetto, tutto perfetto. La casa è in centro, comodissima e completa fino ai minimi dettagli. Tutto è pulitissimo e nuovo. Buona la disposizione delle camere che garantisce una buona privacy. Nonostante la mancanza dell'aria condizionata la casa non è calda, anche perchè Varenna è un paese piuttosto ventilato. Il personale e i proprietari sono gentilissimi.

Grazie mille per i Suoi commenti entusiastici. Spero torni presto a trovarci a Varenna. Liz

“Beautiful home in a quaint village.”

Reviewed 6 Jan 2013

We had a lovely time taking nice walks and enjoying the breathtaking views of the mountains. The home was warm in the chilly winter and the big table allowed a group of friends to cook together and play games at. We slept comfortably and had a wonderful week.

Dear Tiffany, I am very happy to read that you liked spending some time in Varenna despite the chilly winter time. We really appreciate that our property revealed itself up to your expectation. Hope to meet you again, maybe in the summer time Happy New Year Liz

“Spent a month, in heaven.”

Reviewed 4 Jan 2013

We are world travelers, we have stayed at 5 stars hotels and lowley palapas. Don't really enjoy crowded or touristic places. We rented this Villa in Varenna, Italy for the month of July, we thought we died and went to heaven. Located in Varenna on the shores of Lake Como. A beautiful laid back little town with plenty of things to do, great restaurants, shops, museums, easy access and within walking distance to ferries and trains. Beautiful scenery, mountains, flowers, delicious food and friendly locals. You could take the ferry and visit the different towns along the Lake Como, they are all different and beautiful. Or take the train to Milan and connect to all the historic and wonderful attractions northern Italy has to offer. The villa worked great for us, clean and well kept, fully equipped kitchen and laundry. We had many family members come and go over the month long stay, and everyone loved their stay. We would buy our groceries at a little store 3 blocks away, and buy our sweets and train tickets at the local smoke shop 2 blocks away. The only thing I must mention is that morning traffic, well 3 or 4 trucks will wake a light sleeper, (helped us get some family members up and going early) It doesn't get any better than that! We can't hardly wait to go back!

Dear Bob, It is such a big pleasure to know that warenna was worth it.It's nice to know that the Villa was a good accommodation for you and for your family. I am sorry for the Vans but it's mainly supplying for the two big hotels and the little shops in town. I'd be very happy to see you again in future, with warm regards Happy New Year Liz

“Perfect Location with all the Comforts of home”

Reviewed 16 Jun 2012

The home - 3 stories, was tastefully comfortable. We were two couples that had their own baths and bedrooms with plenty of privacy. The kitchen was well equiped as was the rest of the house. The outdoor garden padio was private and comfortable. The location could not be better. You can walk to everything in the quaint town of Varenna, No car was necessary, however, the parking garage was next door, which was a PLUS. The town offers much to do and all in wallking distance. Highly recommnend this house with the accomodating owner!

Dear Guests, thanks a lot for your lovely words. We are very glad to read that you enjoied your stay at Villa Central Varenna. We look forward to welcoming you again in lovely sunny Italy Kindest Regards Liz
