“Enchanted Location”
Reviewed 13 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Imagine walking a up and down a few cobblestone steps to the lake or an amazing family run restaurant in a story book Italian village. That is what you will experience when staying at Casa Mara. Casa Mara is situated on a cobblestone walkway just steps up from the lake promenade and down from the pedestrian alley where you will find so many quaint restaurants. Not only is the location and setting absolutely perfect, so is the apartment. While you will not have full panoramic views of the mountains and lake, you will enjoy a small side terrace and partial views from the windows. What you will really appreciate is the welcome at the train station and the walking tour by the owners. The apartment was spotless with very comfy beds. The apartment was stocked with basics like paper goods and soaps. There was even wine in the frig! We will most certainly return one day.

My husband, son, daughter In law and myself thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Varenna. The apartment is in a perfect location, was very clean, the beds were very comfortable and it was very well equipped with everything we needed. We enjoyed wine, meat and cheeses on the tiny balcony before venturing out to the many great restaurants in Varenna. Fabio did a great job in answering all our questions before we arrived and upon our arrival as well.

“Absolutely spotless condition with central location.”

The hosts were marvelous; meeting us at the station and escorting us to the villa....even though we got the arrival time wrong!! Very patient and understanding, taking the time to give us a thorough understanding of how to take the best advantage of everything available.
The bedrooms were large and comfortable, with fully equipped kitchen and combined dining/lounge. Small balcony, the kitchen and bathroom had great views of the lake. The standard of cleanliness was unsurpassed.
The location puts you close to absolutely everything and the choice of places for coffee, food and views were appreciated. There are stairs to navigate, as there are everywhere here, but the location would be one of the most convenient available.
