Views Views Views!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment truly is right on Lake Como with amazing views from bedroom, living room and bathroom!

We spent 10 days in this apartment and never stopped being impressed with the views. And while we were blown away by the stunning vistas of the lake itself, we also enjoyed watching the hum of Fiumelatte life from the living room window- cyclists, motorbikers, local traders etc.

We found the location to work very well, being outside of the busier Varenna, but walked to Varenna many times to catch ferry, train or eat out.

As we were travelling without a car, Rindo was kind enough to meet us at Varenna train station and also drove us back to Varenna train station at end of our stay. Much appreciated help with our luggage.

Apartment is very clean and comfortable with all basic amenities. We particularly enjoyed sitting outside on the small balcony off the bedroom.

We caught the train to Bellano ( next stop after Varenna) to stock up on grocery supplies at a supermarket, as we were staying 10 days. It was an interesting side trip to visit Bellano.

We didn't have a phone with us but I was always able to communicate easily with Rindo via email.

Highly recommended.

Going the extra mile/km

  • 5 of 5

This lovely apartment gains Five stars from us for two reasons.

Firstly Rindo was exceptionally kind and helpful really "going the extra mile" (in our case literally as well as figuratively)!

Secondly because of the wonderful position right onto Lake Como with fabulous views on two sides.

The road outside the house did not prove noisy for us one just has to take care crossing it or when making the 25 min walk to and from Varenna.

We found Fiumelatte to be an excellent base for exploring the area.

The uninterrupted views from two sides of the house are truly amazing - you're unlikely to find many bathrooms with a view to match the ones from here!

We loved opening the shutters each morning and being able to step out onto the balcony to appreciate the views across the lake - it is also a great place to have drinks or meals. There are further super views across to Varenna from the sitting/dining room.

We made the jouney to Varenna/Ferry both on foot and by train from Fiumelatte halt. It is a 25 minute stroll from the apartment and worth taking the upper path at least once for the views and to escape the Traffic.

The local shop/deli/bakery across the road has everything you need - delicious fresh food bread and cakes but it is only open in the morning.

Having very kindly collected us from Varenna Station Rindo took us up to a larger supermarket at Bellano, waited whilst we shopped and ran us back.

He also returned on our final day with his wife and helped carry a heavy case up the steps to Fiumelatte station. Exceptional service.

There is also a very good restaurant across the road open evenings and Sunday Lunchtime.

We made use of the train to reach Milan - with fast trains from Varenna and local trains via Lecco stopping at Fiumelatte.

We enjoyed our stay in this apartment and we hope to return soon.

We enjoyed our stay on the lake in Fiumelatte. The walk into Varenna along the water or through the hills is beautiful. The restaurant across the street is excellent for lunch or dinner. The apartment is comfortable and provides all necessities. Rindo and Lui were very kind about picking us up from the train and orienting us to the property. Our only complaint was that the Internet connection did not work while we were there. The view of the lake from the sweet balcony is fabulous with stunning sunsets.

Wonderful apartment on Lake Como.

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a month on LAGO DI COMO and had a most wonderful time. Our apartment was perfect. Our landlord met our every need. This is a wonderful location at a wonderful price! And the restaurant across the road is one of the best on the Lake. The bakery is super, as well. This is a must; we are planning our return!

The views from our apartment were incredible! The location is perfect for day trips. Walking to Varenna every day allowed us to eat the wonderful food across the street. Thanks to the Melleras!
