Absolutely blown away by apartment and views from every room

  • 5 of 5

A surprise stay here for my wife, from meeting Marilena.who picked us up at station and gave us a little guided tour of the town in her car.Reccomending places to eat ect.To being shown around apartment, location of beach and of course the shortcut into town.which is a very nice walk,though no footpath in be observant.there is a handy torch in apartment which is definitely needed when using shortcut at night.We were also given a mobile for local calls.which is great for taxis if required and keeping in touch with Marilena if required.There is a local bakery a fairly short walk from apartment using the shortcut.highly recommend trying the bread cheese and meats on offer here.

I would not hesitate in recommending this apartment if visiting the area .the views alone will blow you away....magnificent. Marilena was the perfect host also.we will definitely stay here again on our next visit to Lake Como.

Amazing lake view, clean and functional apartment, and exceptional host

  • 5 of 5

Great experience! Upon arrival Marilena introduced me to people, pointed out key places and helped me get stocked up with groceries. She provided a lot of info on her website and by email (promptly answered my questions as I prepared for the trip). After showing me how everything worked in the apartment and providing me with a cell phone to reach her my vacation began. The big windows provide exceptional views, and the apartment was clean, quiet and safe. Entry into the units require gate keys. The complex only has four units and most owners only come in for the weekend. It is nicely situated with access to a beach that's only a few flight of stairs away, the local bakery and train station are about 20 minutes by foot at a casual pace. The bakery is exceptional for its friendly staff and for the fresh and tasty baked items. There's a fabulous restaurant just up the hill that I highly recommend for the delicious food, really nice and talented chef, and great views. I didn't rent a car so I walked everywhere. Getting into Varenna was farther than I thought but I got used to the walk which was less than two miles to the town square and a bit more to the ferry dock.

Marilena is an honest, caring person that genuinely wants you to enjoy your stay. I would definitely rent from her on my next trip.

Home-y, Authentic Atmosphere with a Wonderful Host!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I visited Casa Camilla on our European "Graduation-moon" (I recently graduated from grad school) and it was absolutely a highlight! Marilena absolutely made the experience for us. As a young couple on our first trip to Europe, we were hesitant about many things. Marilena made us feel so comfortable that we didn't want to leave! Don't worry about providing a deposit, I was a bit worried, but Marilena is an honest woman and is not out to take advantage of anyone.

She picked us up from the train (we were backpacking) and from there she was an exceptional host. She provided us with a cell phone so that we could get ahold of her, and she would give us a ride back to Casa Camilla from town each day. We enjoyed walking into town, it was a beautiful walk, but it was so nice to have a ride back in the evening. She was such an amazing personality, she was so genuine and helpful- she pointed out some affordable places for us to eat which was so helpful. She also provided internet so we were able to send messages home during our stay.

Casa Camilla was so comfy and inviting. It was awesome to have access to a laundry machine during our travels. The view is absolutely breathtaking. Stunning! There were plenty of devices in the kitchen to make us comfortable. We hope to return someday and hang out with Marilena again :) Thank you SO MUCH Marilena!

Wonderful clean comfortable apartment, great view

  • 5 of 5

Camilla House is a nice open concept apartment with absolutely everything you need and more. There are three large windows looking right onto Lake Como... the views are terrific. Marilena was the best hostess !! She made sure I knew everything I needed to know about the apartment and drove me to the grocery store to stock up, then to the train station to get tickets. She was very very considerate of my needs. She even connected me with some english speaking locals who I could socialize with. Loved the apartment, felt very comfortable and safe. Fiumelatte is a lovely small quiet town. I opted to walk to Varenna rather than taking the train; there are two routes - one on the water and one through the town and above water level. Both were lovely and interesting.

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Camilla House for 3 nights recently and thoroughly enjoyed our stay and its location. After spending so many nights in hotels it was a welcome relief to have our own place with kitchen, bedroom, washing machine, tv with english channels and a great internet connection.

Marilena was a wonderful host and provided us with a tour upon arrival and fully explained all of the appliances. In addition she has a location near the town square to park the car when out on the ferries exploring Lake Como or visiting the local restaurants. The view from Camilla House is to die for and it provided a very needed relaxing experience.

I would highly recommend this apartment and we fully intend to return in the near future

Our favorite apartment

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Camilla House was our favorite apartment of our entire trip to Italy. The views of the lake were wonderful. We opened the windows early in the morning and just couldn't get enough of the gorgeous lake and mountains. Marilena was a wonderful hostess showing us all the amenities of the apartment and providing great recommendations for the area. We used the garage in town several times and it was very convenient to access Varenna and to catch the ferry. We didn't mind the train at all and it didn't run at night anyway. I would return to Camilla house in a heartbeat and I thank Marilena for all her hospitality (she even found us the stovetop expresso makers which we now enjoy here at home).
