This apartment was perfect for us!
Our host could not have been nicer. He picked us up at the train station, took us to the grocery store, and even provided us wifi so we could keep track of our home in Florida during the hurricaine. The washing machine in the apartment was great to have as we had been traveling for a week and needed to use it. The apartment had a cute balcony to look out over the lake. Perlido is a nice quiet place to stay away from the busy Varenna, but close enough to get to for activities. The monastery in Varenna is a must see as is the castle in Vezio.
Thank you for your nice review.
I always wish my hosts could have a pleasant holiday on Lake Como and so I always try to help them or even just give an advice.
It was really a pleasure to meet you.
See you the next time!
Really lovely area to explore from :)
We stayed here in July and really found it a great place to stay.
It was very clean and the beds very comfortable.
One thing I would say is if you struggle with the heat take your own fan as there is no air con or fan available.
Dear Julia and Guy,
thank you for your review.
I'm sorry you have suffered the heat very much but your stay coincided with a very hot weather.
I appreciate your advice and I will arrange to offer more comfort to my guests even in these exceptional hot periods.
See you soon!
You won't want to leave.
Perledo is a quiet friendly neighborhood. The apt was exactly as promised and Giorigo went beyond. The footpath up to the park and down to Varenna is right outside the front door, as is the bus stop when you would rather ride. The bar/lunchroom/coffeehouse and the well stocked grocery store are a 15 minute walk. Most importantly we slept very well. The beds were very comfortable and the kitchen nice to prepare meals.
April at Lake Como
Casa Irene was exactly as described clean and tidy with balcony for enjoying the views; Giorgio was very helpful and speaks good English. There was lots of info available before you visit helping you to plan your stay. We enjoyed our stay at the end of April the location being ideal for catching the ferry from Varenna to locations around the lake both gardens and villas. The use of the blue parking permit was really useful allowing you to park at station car park free during the week without having to feed a meter. Views from balcony were excellent helped by good weather for nearly all our stay. Would recommend Casa Irene as a good base for Lake Como area and good for walking breaks. You can also catch train from local station to lots of locations we didn't use the option this time but the train service in Italy we have used before we arrived were all excellent.
3 night stay Casa Irene November 2012
Couldn't have asked for more from the apartment - clean, nicely presented and with great views. We were unluckly with the weather, it rained most of the stay!
Giorgio is very helpful and welcoming - speaks very good english too.
We aim to return in the spring and hope for better weather.
Many Thanks Giorgio.
Thank you Simon! It's been a pleasure for me to meet you.
We wait for you next Spring!
Spring is in fact the best time to admire the wonderful flowering gardens and the Villas of Lake Como and to make relaxing walks along the scenic trails.
Easter in Casa Irene
Casa Irene is a cosy apartment, with a breathtaking view of Lake Como, a medieval castle and with tall mountains as a majestic background. The site is ideal for couples and families who seek peace and quiet. Giorgio is a very helpful and polite and seems to be willing to do anything within his power to make sure you enjoy your stay. We had a nice couple of days in Casa Irene and I can warmly recommend it.
Perledo is a small hamlet perched on the hill above Varenna. The center is dominated by the magnificent Church of St. Martino (XVII cent.) with its imposing facade. Amazing and breathtaking view it offers is the church square, a terrace overlooking the lake in its unique beauty. The historic center is characterized by stone houses next to each other and crossed by narrow pedestrian streets that offer charming views. The landscape is enhanced by the presence of the Castle of Vezio that with its gray stone emerges from the bright green of the hill on which it stands and that suggests the ancient times of kings and queens. In any direction you can see mountain ranges covered with lush green in summer and with snow in winter that are the backdrop for romantic sunsets. Nature dominates the entire landscape. Perledo offers tourists, with small movements, many amenities (arts, sports, culture and gastronomy) that ensure a pleasant stay.
