Location description from owner

The Lake Como region

The Lake Como offers the possibility of waterskiing, windsurfing, trekking and cycling,and in varenna center to rent motor-boats. Around Varenna, one hour and a half by car, clients can reach St.Moritz ( or even by train) , 2 hours to Livigno, a tax- free town 15 km before St.Moritz, Lake Como is situated in a basin surrounded by wooded mountains, under the Italian Alps, offers an extremely varied landscape, made of woods and rock formations.On the peaceful and charming lakeside there are many ancient famous museum villas and even privat villas with sub-tropical gardens, which offer a haven haven of wonders, peace and tranquility and residential resorts such as Varenna, Bellagio, Menaggio, Como and Lecco. Lake Como offers up by early spring one of the most magnificent natural scenery with its colorful houses, one on top the other with the flowers on the balconies, the villas with their large gardens with tropical plants and flowers.There are many olive trees that produce also oil : the ancient villages are perched on the lower slopes of the mountains overlooking the lake between small beaches with pebbles.The climate is temperate and allows the presence of olive and cypress trees and other several botanic plants in the gardens of the wonderful villas around the lake .That's why we still have a local produciton of olive oil produced by the local olive groves Perledo, a village just above Varenna.Just a few hundred meters before Perledo tourists can visit the Vezio Castel Tower, from which you can enjoy an unforgettable view of the lake with the three branches of Lake Como. It is possible to reach the castle by a path from Varenna in 20 minutes walk.Tourists who have a car can easily reach in an hour and a half the beautiful St. Moritz and Livigno ( 15 km far from St.Moritz) , both winter sky area, the second one as tax-free offers cheap shops, cafes and restaurants .The landscapes are unique and beautiful . It is possible also reach St:Moritz by train in one day.The Lake Como offers the possibility of waterskiing, windsurfing, trekking and cycling,and in Varenna center to rent motor boats and taxi service so tourists can spend a day with their families in thier own privacy and enjoy the beauty of the lake without a driver.Ferries often run around the lake on the 3 branches of Lake Como, Colico , Lecco and Como .The Valsassina is the area above and along the lake east coast , rich in local traditions such as the production of scissors, wooden objects and superb local food, interesting place to visit if you have a car.Milan , Lecco , Como, Lugano on the Swiss Lugano Lake, are easily accessible by train or bus and boat, so customers can see "La Scala, The Duomo, and the famous Last Supper ( =booking in advance is suggested).

Varenna

The historic buildings and the 4 ancient churches , the Villas monastero and the Villa Cipressi with the gardens make the atmosphere of Varenna special and memorable.The apartment is perfectly situated in an Italian church cobbled square, between the ancient buildings and the ancient 4 churches , the main church is the Chiesa San giorgio, and the most ancient is the Chiesa San Giovanni,roman-medieval time.Varenna is a lovely little village on a promontory on the east coast of Lake Como. The lake is on one side and mountains are on the other. It is possible to take short walks up and down the ancient cobbled lanes, where nothing seems to have changed for centuries.Varenna has a nice walk to and from the train station whether going via the main road or going along the lakeside walkway.The famous picturesque lakeside walkingway takes from the romantic medieval quarter of Varenna to the ferry dock in 5 minutes only , which features medieval passageways. Tourists can enjoy the delightful wine bars and restaurants and the shops along the promenade , the port and the town.The car and passenger ferries go up and down the lake to the larger towns for those wanting more shopping and sight seeing especially for those wanting to tour the many beautiful villas and gardens (although Varenna itself has two lovely villas, Villa Cipressi and Villa Monastero). The trains from Milan take just over an hour and go on as far north as the Swiss border. Motor boats and taxi boat services in varenna, ask me for more informations.
