Car: recommended

The house, located in Pino, hamlet of Varenna, is easy reachable by train or car. Varenna is halfway from Milan to Sondrio. By railway or by boat service it’s very easy to go around from there to many interesting and attractive places of the region. In the touristic season (from March to October) a small train is serving the centre to hamlets.

Varenna is offering to visitors typical restaurants with local and regional food and pizzerias. Is recommended to have a visit to beautiful villas, villa Monastero and Villa Cipressi with famous botanic garden, the Fiumelatte (the shortest torrent of Italy), the Vezio’s castle. It’s easy to make excursions to the mountains, through a lot of footpaths, and journeys on the lake.

Amazing apartment, spectacular views and great host.

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was amazing and very comfortable. The panorama view from the balcony was unbelievable. Apartment has everything you need for a comfortable stay including a small garden with an additional sitting area (also great view) and barbecue facilities. Roberto was a great host. He was always helpful, showed us the easy way to go to Fiumelatte beaches, and advise us on the best hikes in nearby mountains. His tomatoes and wine were delicious.

Fiumelatte is great place but is good to do some research in advance. There are a couple ways to walk to Varenna it easiest is to use Pariarchy Greenway which is relatively easy walk with nice views or more difficult Sentiero del Viadante. The nearest beach from the apartment is 8-10 minutes downhill and maybe 15 minutes uphill this was a small but lovely stony/gravelly beach most of time completely deserted.

Overall we had perfect time and thank you Roberto.

Outstanding!

  • 5 of 5

Villa is amazing, views incomparible- photo's do not do it justice. Antonella and Roberto were incredibly warm and welcoming hosts five stars for that alone! Recommending this villa to everyone i know. The area itself is magical, from the lake and mountain views to the beautiful itallian towns and villiages (we drove to Italy so had a car and at least passed through the majority of them even if not stopping on every occasion). The view from the top of the mountain from Pigra (reached by cable car from Agregro) is unmissable. When you have visited the many beautiful locations by road or foot, hire a boat for a couple of hours and see them from a different perspective. One of the most beautiful locations i have visited and my wife was a travel agent for 20 years so i have seen a few! For those of you with the stamina for it, drive there through Austria and Switzerland to make the journey part of the holliday -24 hours or so depending on chosen route and stops from manchester uk! Don't miss this destination.

Delight and Welcome

  • 5 of 5

A local train runs on the hour from Fiumelatte to Varenna and takes about three minutes. The walk from Fiumelatte (uphill) to the apartment takes about fifteen minutes but the view from the highest point of the path is well worth the climb. We found this great apartment spacious and well appointed with brilliant views

across the lake to Menaggio. The atmosphere and the place itself was magical and allowed us to relax and delight in the early morning sunshine and to experience some wondrous sun-sets at dusk This is an ideal location and apartment.which had everything we required including our own private garden. This privacy gave us a sense of being away from the ‘madding crowd’ taking in the sounds and conversations of the local people. .Above all, the unobtrusive presence of our host who lives nearby made a major contribution to our enjoyment. He made us most welcome and dealt promptly with any requirements that we had. We will certainly return.

"We spent a wonderful wee...

  • 5 of 5

"We spent a wonderful week in Varenna in this beautiful apartment, even the weather was quite dull, rains and clouds (which is not common for June of course. The view from the terrace was breathtaking, the surroundings, Varenna and other towns on the lake Como, just beautiful. We were with a baby, he was given a bed and a high chair, he liked the place a lot too! We were mostly using a baby carier to walk around with him, as the area is really steep, with lots of stircases and hills.

The owners Roberto and his daughter are really nice and welcoming. It was a pleasure to meet them. Thanks for hospitality!"

"The view is even better ...

  • 5 of 5

"The view is even better than the pictures show. Likewise,the apartment is more spacious than we expected from the pictures,although the third bedroom has very restriced headroom. Most people would be advised to have a car and, in this regard, there is a parking space which is very rare for accomodation in this area."
