Centrally located in downtown Varenna, you can’t beat this home. Well appointed and comfortable, this house was perfect for our six night visit of five adults and one child. Thank you so much!
Beautiful, Comfortable Villa in a Perfect Location
We enjoyed a wonderful week with another couple in this lovely villa. The staff was friendly and very accommodating. We appreciated this well appointed, authentic Liberty style villa with it’s lake views, gardens and conveniences. Having a washing machine was a godsend! The town of Varenna is small and beautiful and has so much to offer, from convenient train and ferry connections to numerous restaurants and sites to visit like the Fiumelatte River and Castle. Thank you for letting us stay in this lovely home!
Spacious villa with beautiful views
We had a party of six staying here for three nights during a warm September. We walked from the train station (ten minutes, no problem with rolling suitcases) and were a little surprised at being confronted by about sixty steps up to the villa entrance, but no problem. Lena met us there and was responsive and helpful throughout our stay. The villa is spacious with large sitting and dining rooms, ample room at the kitchen table, and large bedrooms. Furniture was nice and comfortable, and lighting for reading was okay when we moved a lamp or two. Internet did not function until a sim card was provided our second morning that allowed a hot spot. Beds were comfortable, the kitchen was well equipped, and the two bathrooms were fine (though the shower in the upstairs bath is a bit odd, with a little shelf in the small tub). We especially enjoyed the small porch with a wonderful view (as pictured) with table that was just big enough for us to squeeze around at breakfast and for one dinner that we cooked in. We used the washing machine and it was easy to figure out, and soap was provided. I'm not crazy about being asked to strip the beds and place sheets and towels in one place on departure, but that seems to be somewhat commonplace and is a minor complaint. No air conditioning (again common) but fans were provided and we could open windows while keeping shutters closed at night, so that was okay. Overall we really enjoyed out stay and have good memories of this villa.
Stunning old Villa
Few places are as lovely and relaxing as this one. An old villa with stunning views of lake Como. It was clean and well kept, quiet at night and secure. It was a lovely place to center, make dinners and sit out on the patios enjoying the sunset over the lake.
Lovely home and a lovely town
The beautiful historic home with many updates andwith great views of the lake. We didn't get perfect weather, so we didn't get to make as much use of the front porch as we would have liked. Also be aware that there are a lot of steps involved in getting up to the house.
Beautiful home, perfect location!
We had a great time staying at Villa Guardini. It is perfectly suited for exploring Lake Como without a car as both the ferry and train station are a few minutes walk away (although with luggage I'd recommend a taxi because both involve walking up or down hills!). The piazza by the ferry has several restaurants and the main part of town is also only a short walk from the house. The views are amazing, and we had several meals sitting on the front terrace overlooking the lake. The bedrooms are large and well-furnished, and the living space downstairs is very comfy. Definitely made for a wonderful vacation!
Hi Barbara, thank you for the review and feedback. Hope you will visit Lake Como again.
Located in Varenna, between the Ferry Port/Train Station and antique area of the village, walking distance to everything, perfect if you don't want to have a car.
