A perfect holiday apartment

  • 5 of 5

The location, overlooking the town square, could not be better. The apartmet was clean, totally equipped, nicely decorated. Maddelena extra care for details made a big difference, from picking us up at the train station to offering excellent advice about what to see, where to dine, etc. Apartment charming and comfortable.

Perfect for us!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. Marlina is very organized and helpful. She picked us up from the train station. Gave us an over view of town and told us where the good restuarants were and the grocery stores. Her place is located right in town. She had everything we needed for a great stay. I recommend the pizza place next door. We loved the walk along the lake. We took the ferry around to the other towns one day. The ferries are numerous and easy to access.

Charming Town with a Delightful Host

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had an absolutely delightful time in the picturedsque town of Varenna, in no small part due to the wonderful apartment we were lucky enough to find, and to the apartment's extremely charming owner, Marilena. First of all, the apartment is ideally located, smack dab in the middle of town. It has everything you need, including a lovely kitchen. As nice as the living quarters are, it was the town we came to see, and Marilena couldn't have been more helpful. She picked us up at the train station when we arrived and gave us an guided tour. Her restaurant recommendations were spot on, and her general knowledge of Varenna added so much to our enjoyment of it - not to mention that Marilena was herself a delight, making us feel like family. At the end our all too brief stay, she was kind enough to give us a ride back to the station. We were very sorry to be leaving, but fully expect to return one day. When we do, we will surely again be staying at Casa Maddalena.

Something Special in Varenna

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Casa Maddalena for 3 weeks. The apartment is ideally located with views onto Varenna's piazza San Giorgio and to the San Giorgio church, and minutes away from the lake shore, restaurants and ferry dock. The apartment was spotlessly clean, tidy, light and spacious and equipped with everything you could possibly need for a comfortable stay. A good-sized bedroom with ensuite and plenty of storage, a large lounge room tastefully decorated in traditional Italian decor, and a fully equipped and modernised kitchen. Marliena was an exceptional host - kind, caring and could not do enough to make sure we enjoyed our stay and had everything we needed. She met us at the train station and during our stay kindly took us (twice) to a larger village nearby to do some grocery shopping. Varenna has two small food shops - a butcher and a general food/fruit and vegetable store, and a pharmacy, located on the piazza. During our stay we took several ferry trips to other villages on the lake and found Varenna was easily the pick of them. The ferries were reliable and efficient and a great way to see the lake. This was our first visit to Varenna and part of a 10 week holiday in Europe. Our stay at Casa Maddelena was certainly a highlight. We will be back. Grazie Mille Marilena.

Wonderful property and gracious hostess

  • 4 of 5

Marilena met us as the train station and gave us a quick orientation to the town, which was helpful. She showed us around the apartment and helped us learn how to care for it properly. She is a lively and fun person.

The property was clean and well-organized. I loved the little balcony, we spent a great deal of time there. We loved Varenna- many great places to eat and things to see in the area.

The only negative for me was how noisy it was at night, which of course is not Marilena's fault. We needed to keep the windows open because it was warm and the noisy people in the bar in the piazza kept me awake until 1 am. Of course this is not a factor if you're a late night person and it's a plus if you like a little night life!

Very nice apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this place. The owner lives in the apartment and was a gracious hostess. She picked us up at the train station and at the end dropped us off. The apartment is quiant and has spacious in the main center of town. There are several good restaurants in the square and we tried some of them. You can buy all daily needs just down the street. Overall we were very pleased with our stay there. We would definetly recommend it.
