A perfect home base for exploring Lake Como and nearby areas. This apartment was clean, spacious and comfortable with 2 bathrooms and had all of the amenities in a "home away from home" (including wifi, satellite TV, etc.) but for us the real bonus was the location, the security of the garage parking and the darling private large garden where ,weather permitting early March, took our meals. My husband and I like to have a car when we travel in Italy and were pleased to discover just how close this place was to everything we needed. It was easy walk to the center of Varenna (and it's charming walkway overlooking the lake), the ferry boat dock and the Varenna train station. This allowed for us and our friends to be independent as we explored the area together whether it was to take a ferry to go shopping in Bellagio (or to see one of the famous villas), or to take the train to Milan (our friends even took a fast train to Venice for one night) or to meet for coffee or a drink at one of the cafes in Varenna. We had a lot of privacy since the owners were only around on the weekends, but marilena, who lives in the village center, was always nearby if we needed anything. Great place. Would definitely return.
