Gorgeous view of Lake Como.
Thank you, Marilena, for taking such good care of us in Varenna. You treated us like good friends. We loved our stay at the Camilla House. The apartment was nice, plenty of room for us to sleep comfortably, and a nice warm shower. Thank you for helping us with transportation and a cell phone. You're the best.
Amazing Views. Fast internet. Good location.
Loved staying at Camilla House! Everything was clean and bright, with all the comforts of home and the views of the lake were spectacular (and the landline/fast speed internet was a dream…something we don’t always find when we travel abroad). While we had some April showers on the first days, we still managed to do the 5-7 minute walk into Fiumelatte on the path without any problems. Once in Fiumelatte we were able to stock up on fresh local foods and a few basic supplies at the darling little shop there (and we even enjoyed a nice meal at the Platano restaurant in Fiumelatte, too). From Fiumelattte we would walk the additional 10-15 minutes to the southern edge of Varenna which is a small, charming and very “walkable “village (really nothing is very far away) where we could catch the train or the ferry boat to explore the area further. Our host, Marilena was always available to help us out and was very kind to pick us up from the train station when we arrived and take us back when we left which helped a lot when we had all our luggage. But really the views from Camilla House, even on the rainy days, were amazing. We loved it.
BEAUTIFUL view of Lake Como, Gracious Host
Priceless view of Lake Como.
Comfortable apartment. Good bed.
We had no car. Our gracious host gave us a ride to and from the train.
Apartment is along the Green Way de Patriarchi...a beautiful 1 hour walk to Varenna. We used a local taxi to get to the ferry dock to visit Bellagio and other cities. May be suggested a best stay if you have your own transportation. Long haul without a car.
cozy, comfortable lodging in a quaint town
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
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.
Thanks ...and see you hopefully again !
The view from this apartment is just magnificent and Mariela is a wonderful host.
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!
