“Don't look elsewhere!!” This place was fantastic!! I am so glad we decided to rent Appa Varenna instead of booking a hotel. Andrea is a pure gentleman and was kind enough to wait for us as we arrived quite late.
The apartment itself is pristine and very nice to live in. We stayed 3 nights and the location is perfect with great views. It's right next to the ferry, and a few minutes walk from most of the best eating places. The Villa M and C are about a 10 minute walk.
We really loved the place and would absolutely stay again. Another HUGE advantage is onsite parking, which is a big bonus in Varenna. The place is easily accessible by car.
We stayed in this apartment for week at the end of June. The apartment is very modern and spacious. It sleeps 6 although there were only 2 of us - for of group of 6 you should know that the third bedroom is accessed from the second bedroom. It has been newly refurbished so everything is very clean, and all towels/bedding were provided. It was very hot during our stay, so worth noting that the apartment does not have air conditioning but there are a number of fans. To reach the apartment there are a lot of steps, but it is worth the effort to get there because of the amazing views. From the balconies you can see so much of the lake and watch the sun setting over the mountains opposite. We were really glad that we chose to stay in Varenna. It has a fantastic ferry service to get to any of the other towns, a direct train from Milan and a great choice of restaurants, and yet it still feels like a small village. We were also really glad that we chose to stay in this apartment. Just steps away are 2 gorgeous tiny restaurants, and the centre of the village is just at the bottom of the alleyway. There are a couple of shops within 2 minutes walk where you can get all the basic provisions that you need for self catering. Luciana, the owner, was really helpful, and replied quickly to any queries we had during booking. She was also on hand if we needed anything during the stay, but as we had no problems at all with the apartment we had no need to call. I would recommend this apartment without question to anyone looking for a relaxing break on Lake Como. …
VILLA CENTRAL VARENNA
Beautiful home in a quaint village.
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. …
Casa Mary Varenna
Heaven on earth.
The accommodation was superb in every way possible. We felt so relaxed and comfortable, with a very peaceful sleep each night.
The owners were generous and very helpful. We stayed for nearly 2 weeks and we would definitely return as soon as we can.
The views were spectacular and the ferry terminal was very close. The perfect place to stay. …
