Varenna, also called the 'pearl of the lake', is a picturesque village on a promontory on the east coast of Lake Como. It is a quiet lakeside town with beautiful old houses and picturesque vistas. Olive trees and cypress trees testify to the mild climate of the region, along with many botanical specimens that are normally found only in warmer climates. A romantic path along the waterfront is connecting the Old Town with Olivedo, which is a pier for ferries and steamers. Because ferries (and car ferries) connect Varenna on Lake Como with other cities, and because the train runs directly from the centre of Milan to Varenna (the trip takes less than an hour), this house is an ideal starting point for excursions in northern Italy and south of the Swiss Alps. Varenna offers many wonderful opportunities for day trips. Explore the castle of Vezio (a 5 minute walk from the house). Visit the gardens of Villa Monastero, Bellagio and Menaggio (15 minutes by ferry), Tremezzo and the famous Villa Carlotta and Como with its historic monuments, churches, and shops.

Varenna, with its brightly painted houses and flowers along the lakeshore, is just 10 minutes away by car. Visitors love the peace and tranquillity of Varenna, and the relaxation, which the leisurely pace of the town allows for. Take a walk on the lake promenade to the stone beach, which isinhabited by ducks, enjoy an ice cream or a coffee in a “Gelateria”, or sit on a terrace by the water's edge to enjoy a meal and the beautiful scenery: the calm lake, the towns of Bellagio and Menaggio across, and snow-capped mountains in the distance. Along the arcade near the water are a few shops, boutiques and cafes. The sports club in Varenna (3 miles away) offers beach access and beach facilities.

Near Como: Lake Como is renowned for its luxuriant vegetation and its mild climate. In winter, the temperature is never too cold in warmer regions, such as Tremezzo. In summer the climate is pleasantly moderate thanks to the fresh breezes. In Como, you should plan to visit the Cathedral, the Piazza San Fedele with many 400-year old buildings, and plan to see the Basilica, the austere church of San Abbondio, as well as the early Romanesque basilica of San Corpoforo. Before leaving Como, you should take the funicular railway up to Brunate and enjoy a truly spectacular view. Leaving Como and traveling north along the left bank, it is only a short drive to Cernobbio, where the old town features a delightful collection of picturesque houses and narrow streets. On this side, there is also Villa Balbianello, the elegant family residence and guesthouse, which was shown in the movie 'A Month by the Lake'.

Why Bettina Röhrig chose Varenna

A house with pool, garden, terrace and lake view make a good starting point for excursions to the Italian lakes.

What makes this house unique

A nice little restaurant is just a short walk away (about 100 metres), while other restaurants, shops, the ferry, and the train station are in Varenna.

Please note: The Google Map shows only the approximate location.

This home sits on a hill, 4 kilometres above Varenna, within a property with green lawns and olive trees. Varenna, called “pearl of the lake”, is a quaint village lying on a promontory on the east coast of Lake Como. It is a quiet lakeshore town of beautiful old houses and romantic panoramas. Olive and cypress trees testify to the mild climate of the area, along with many botanical specimens normally found in warmer climates. A romantic walkway along the lakefront links the town center with Olivedo, the landing point for ferries and steamers. Because ferries connect it to other towns on Lake Como including a car ferry, and the train comes directly from Milan centre to Varenna (train ride little more than one hour), it is an ideal base for exploring northern Italy as well as the southern Swiss Alps. Varenna offers many wonderful possibilities for daytrips. Explore the castle of Vezio (5 minutes walk from the villa). Visit the gardens of Villa Monastero, Bellagio and Menaggio (15 minutes by ferry), Tremezzo and the famous Villa Carlotta, and Como, with its historic monuments, churches, and shopping.
