cozy, comfortable lodging in a quaint town

  • 5 of 5

Casa Camilla was a terrific VRBO for our stay in Varenna. Marilena was the perfect host, providing us with assistance at every step from meeting us at the train to providing a tour of the area. While not in the heart of Varenna, we enjoyed beautiful views of the lake from our windows. The apartment was well furnished, clean, and comfortable. Marilena thought of every detail, and we would definitely return to this lovely place!

The owner thinks of everything you might need

  • 5 of 5

We heard about Casa Maddalena from a friend and found it by google. Marilena, the owner, told us that Maddalena was booked but that she had another property , Camilla House in the neighboring town. We were renting a car so it worked for us. What really made it work great is that the Camila house had it's own on site parking spot PLUS Marilena provided another private single car garage right in the town center of Varenna which we could use anytime. That made Camilla House's location just outside of the city a non-problem. Other special perks Marilena provided were an Italian cellphone loaded with her number so we could call for advice and could also use to call to reserve tours and make other arrangements all over Italy. W'OW! As if that were not enough, Marilena provided a cute little washing machine and drying racks in the Condo! So appreciated as we were on a 2 week tour of Italy. The bed and the apartment were comfortable and there were 2 sofa beds in the living room so it would be perfect for a family although we had no use for them. Her kitchen is very well equipped and she truly tried to think of everything we might need right down to a couple of umbrellas in an umbrella stand We rent a beach condo at Edisto Beach and we really have tried to be the same kind of owner but she has us beat! I have never rented travel accommodations from anyone who tried so hard to be helpful. Oh, and I forgot to mention, it's on a hillside looking right down on Lake Como. What a beautiful view. Be sure and look Marilena Anghileri up. She'll fix you up with a great place.

Would I recommend this vacation rental to my best friend? Yes.

The view from this apartment is just magnificent and Mariela is a wonderful host.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was well equipped and very clean. Great location and the available parking garage was very convenient. Mariela is a wonderful host and has thought of everything. We would definately consider this apartment if we return to Lake Como. We hope the weather will be nicer than it was for us so that we could enjoy the beach!

Peace on the lake

  • 5 of 5

We spent four nights at Marilena's comfortable apartment south of Varrena and thoroughly enjoyed the quiet, the view of Belaggio, and the well equipped kitchen. She met us at the train station and explained the town and region while taking us to her apartment. She was helpful and available. The apt. is just over a mile from town and we found the walk a good time to meet people and appreciate the lake shore.

Wished we could stay longer!

  • 5 of 5

The views of the lake and surrounding mountains were stunning. The condo was very comfortable and nicely appointed. The owner was very helpful. She picked us up at the train station, oriented us for our stay, and took us back to the trains for our departure. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and would definitely return. Note that we did lots of walking. There are taxis, if required.
