Rent an apartment in a lovely hillside villa with a swimming pool! This Lake Como accommodation in a villa overlooks the lake and the nearby town of Varenna, populated with beautiful old villas and romantic panoramas. Plentiful olive and cypress trees are evidence of the mild climate in the area around this apartment on Como Lake. Built on a rocky promontory over Lake Como, Varenna itself has been the heart of the area for centuries, an ideal place to explore whenever you decide to leave the privacy of your Lake como rental property. A romantic walkway, abounding in flora, wends along the lakefront in town, linking it to Olivedo, a landing point for ferries and steamers.
