Magnificent Lake Como View
This property is in a nice, quiet location up above the town of Varenna. It was a very relaxing place to spend the last days of our vacation in Italy. It’s a hike to town, but after the Amalfi Coast we were up to the task of ascending/descending hills. The ample parking was a nice change compared to our other Italy rentals (we never lost sleep in fear of a bus side swiping our rental car!), and there is plenty of parking to be found in town, always lots of room at the train station for a nominal charge. We were very pleased to discover that this apartment is situated in the end unit of the complex, so you get a huge ground floor patio, vastly superior to the numerous rental units that had only tiny balconies, in addition to beautiful views from 2 sides. This was a bonus considering the listing didn’t really highlight this as a unique feature in the area. The apartment was comfortable and spacious for my family of four, and the grocery store just a few hairpins above had most of what we needed for supplies (better bread and fresh pasta can be found in Varenna). Could use some attention to amenities like towels, dishcloth/sponges that were extremely well used, wrecked iron/ironing board, burnt out light bulbs... You will put up with the freezer door being duct-taped on, a garden in need of tending/weeding, all because of the view— It’s simply breathtaking!
Beautiful view and nice location
Varenna is the perfect place for exploring the Lake Como. We were three friends visiting this area to cycle for 4 days, and the apartment was perfect for our stay (maybe exept for the 2 km hill we had to do from the ferry and back every day). We could relax in the front yard with a nice view over the lake or take a bath in the common pool. We did not have any noisy neighbours during our stay, it was quiet and relaxing. The only drawback was that we had a very warm week with extremely high temperature (unnormally high, 40 degC at day and 27 degC at night) and that led to warm nights when there was no aircondition in the apartment. There was to fans there, which helped us to sleep.
We would love to come back to stay here.
Varenna with views
The views of the lake at this apartment are as good as most anywhere on the lake-truly beautiful! Enjoying the outdoor patio was the best part of our stay! The apartment was clean though a little sparse. It would benefit from a little decorating and warmth. The walk up and down the hill was a bit strenuous. We enjoyed it and the pool to cool off after the walk but if you are taking many bags up, you would likely want a car or taxi as the property is up quite a hill-adds to the views though!
The view from the terrace is priceless.
I've never been to Italy before & chose the Lake Como area as our home base. The apartment had all the basics and that is all we required. There were a few minor things: a clogged shower drain which caused water to drain slowly & the sofa bed was too uncomfortable to sleep - a bar in the middle of the bed was higher than the head and foot of bed - Fortunately, there were two fold up twin beds and an additional couch for our party of five which sufficed. A few of the side lamps in the kitchen didn't work - burned out bulbs?
The apartment is in an excellent location perched just above Varenna & just a couple minutes drive from Varenna's train station. We will be back someday & hope that we will be able to stay here again.
Delightful apartment, WORLD CLASS VIEW!!!
We spent 6 days at this lovely little apartment perched on the hillside between Varenna and Perledo. The views are what sold me on choosing this apartment, and boy, they did NOT disappoint! We pinched ourselves each morning we awoke and looked out over the sparkling blue of Lago di Como and the stunning mountains surrounding us. Sunset was our favorite time of day, we made sure to be home and seated on our terrace each night to soak in that incredible experience with a bottle of the local Nebbiola wine. We felt like we were on top of the world.
The apartment itself is simple yet functional. Not fancy, but pleasant, clean and comfortable. And very quiet, being up on the side of the mountain.
The walk down to town along the Sentiero del Viandante cobblestone trail is not for the weak or elderly, it is quite challenging and steep in places. We chose the longer route along the road several times and it proved much less treacherous. We never attempted the walk up to the apartment as either the trail or the road would be a steep climb, so we just made good friends with one of the taxi drivers in town and called her for rides up the hill (10euros) each time. Well worth it! And as there are no markets nearby the apartment, all purchases have to be carried in, so the taxi was the only choice for us.
We absolutely loved our stay at this lovely apartment and would return again. Varenna now owns a little piece of my heart, and this apartment is a big reason why!
All about the view
Situated in the hills above the town of Varenna the views from the large private garden are amazing. The walk up from the town takes about 35 minutes, perhaps less for the younger generation. There is small supermarket further up the hill about a ten minute walk. Plenty of restaurants to choose from in Varena which also has good bus, train and ferry services. More attention to detail regarding cleaning (particularly the odor of cigarettes) would definitely move this apartment into the 5 star plus category.
On investigation the fusty (smokey) smell was caused by a small leak in the kitchen, this has now been repaired and the smell is completely gone
Lejligheden er beliggende ca 2 km over den maleriske landsby Varenna, som er ca 60 min togtur fra Milano banegård eller 1. 20 min kørsel fra Bergamo lufthavn. Jeg anbefaler at leje en bil, som klatre op ad bjerget er stejl. En taxi service er tilgængelig på togstationen hvis ikke kører.
Varenna er det ideelle sted, at være på den gyldne trekant (Varenna, Bellagio og Menaggio). Med en virkelig gammel brostensbelagte by som din baggrund, kan du rejse rundt Comosøen med færge (bilfærger er kun tilgængelige i "trekanten"), udforske villaer og haver og glæde i romantiske omgivelser, mens du nyder det lokale køkken frisk fra søen.
Varenna er Romantic Promenade - Hvis du gå langs vandkanten til højre for færgeterminalen du vil naturligvis blive ført til søpromenaden 'La Passerella ", som er en udkraget gangbro kommer ud fra klippen ansigt kysten. En favorit med romantikere og specielt smuk i aften som solen går ned. Varenna kan være den mest maleriske by på søen, dens stejle snoede stræder foret med charmerende huse, blomstrende balkoner og blonde-forhæng vinduer. Lige over det er det gamle slot, hvor Theodolinda, Queen of the Lombards, siges at være døde i det 7. århundrede. To berømte villaer at besøge her, er Villa Cipressi, med terrassehaver cascading helt ned til kysten, og Villa Monastero, et sandt udstillingsvindue.
