I am a young boy (27 years old) that choosed to change his life 4 years ago. I've been studied economy in Milan university and i was a sales agent; i liked to sell useful product to shops but i hated traffic and very big cities in wich my work brought me.
So at the age of 23 i decided to take this wonderful place in this very small and typical village where i have my very little typical restaurant and, just above, my beatiful threehouse.
Carlo purchased this apartment in 4
I love walk to our wonderful mountains and i love to live outside. I love to feel free, not in one car and not in one office.
my kitchen, the unique view of the lake, you are very close to Varenna but you're not in Varenna, italian prices, not turistic prices.
The windy road from Varenna keeps on going up but it's worth it for the view when you get there - the apartment is a few hundred metres above the lake. The view from the balcony was amazing and different every time you look depending on the time of day. A car is pretty essential, but there are places to park for free on the way down to the village so that you don't have to pay for parking if you don't mind walking the last 10 to 15 mins.
Varenna is beautiful - botanical gardens, narrow cobbled streets, great restaurants. Nearby there are great walks with more amazing views (the mountains bounding the lake are higher than anything in the British Isles). The Orrido Gorge in Bellano is worth going to see. It's easy and fairly cheap to get ferries across to other parts of the lake - the mountains opposite Varenna behind Menaggio were a particular draw as you can see them from the apartment balcony.
Carlo was a really good host, warm and welcoming - he sorted us out with some dinner downstairs in the trattoria on the night we arrived. The food is good and it's not expensive. After giving us some information on things to do and see in the locality on the first day we were left to our own devices, just having a quick chat on the way through if we saw one another.
I would recommend it for a couple who want some peace and quiet to enjoy the scenery and take a holiday at their own pace.
I stayed there with my husband for week, the apartment is really lovely and has an amazing view of the lake. It's pretty high up in the mountain above varenna (the village is actually called bologna) so a car is a must. The positive of this is that there is no car noise at all so I would recommend this place for a couple wanting to get away from it all. Right underneath there is a lovely trattoria too.
Overall peaceful location, lovely views, nicely done apartment so top marks for this property.
Sehr gute Lage, guter Schnitt der Wohnung, sehr gutes Bad.
Aber die Küchenecke ist schlecht ausgestattet: Zwei viel zu eng stehende und viel zu kleine, sehr langsame Kochplatten (zwei Töpfe oder Pfannen aus dem vorhandenen Sortiment passen nicht gleichzeitig darauf). Kein Pfannenheber, kein Rührlöffel, Töpfe völlig zerkratzt. Schneidbrett und ein zweites (!) Weinglas erst auf Anfrage.
This apartment is located in a little village (Bologna), which can be reached on a small and curvy road from Varenna (in 10 min) by car (park at the parcheggio for "Crott del Meo" and not near the church). But it´s totally worth it! This is a beautiful and also very romantic place to stay which offers a spectacular view over the lake. It has a big balcony, there are two comfortable folding chairs for sunbathing, but bring a folding table to be able to enjoy breakfast or dinner there, too. There is a spacious bathroom with a big shower. The little kitchenette has the necessary things (two hotplates, a microwave, one pan and one big pot and dishes), but if you don´t feel like cooking, the incredible friendly owners run a little trattoria (called Crott del Meo) downstairs which serves great authentic food. There are also a couple of easy hiking trails, which start at or pass the trattoria.
We had a great time here! Grazie mille!
50Mt far from free parking area.
5Km far from lake-Varenna(one of the most beautiful village of the Como lake).
Situated in a little old typical village immersed in a woody area.
The best view on the lake. 1Km far from tennis court, 3,5Km far from Gittana beach.
Using the train from Varenna you can easily reach Milan with its museum, Lecco and St.Moritz.
In Varenna there are also the boats to the most important lake's destination(Bellagio, Menaggio, Cadenabbia, Como).
