We appreciated the space and quiet of this accommodation. The apartment was not serviced during our stay and we appreciated that. It felt like 'our home' for the the time we were there. The entire building was empty while we were there until the last night, and so it was absolutely peaceful -until the last night. The last night we could hear clunking footsteps on our ceiling from the people above -wouldn't have been so good if that had been for the entire stay.
We were met at the train station and it was lovely to be taken to the apartment and shown around while we were finding our bearings. the apartment was clean and the location very easy for boats, restaurants and the town.

“Wonderful apartment, location and owners!”

We had a wonderful stay after a whirlwind tour of Venice, Florence and Rome. We were welcomed at the train station, driven to the apt. where we found a beautiful, comfortable apt. right across from the lake. We were welcomed with a gift and lots of helpful directions about dining, ferry and train schedules and just about everything you needed to know about the area. The apt was very clean and modern with beautiful views of the lake and mountains. The shower is very small but so were the other three showers we used in Italy. We walked everywhere and especially enjoyed the walkway along the lake front which began across the street from our apt. The owners are very nice and very helpful, kind and generous. The apt is in a great location for a romantic getaway. There are 37 steps up to the apt so I would not recommend this apt. for older people who have difficulty climbing stairs or families with small children. We were even given a ride back to the train station and pastries for our train ride to our next destination.

“Excellent apartment, beautiful town, welcoming host.”

The apartment is in a great location beside the harbour with fantastic views across the Lake. It is perfectly situated about 5 mins walk from the town centre, a walk which is along the water's edge with tremendous views at every turn. Although fairly basic the apartment is very comfortable and clean with everything that you need. We were met by the owner's mother, a lovely woman who gave us a very warm welcome and met us off the train. And the owner was equally friendly when he took us back to the train at the end of the holiday.

Varenna is a quiet little town with lots of charm and plenty of eating places. It is a great base to visit the rest of the lakes and is very easy to get to because of the train station. Because of the walk into town plus the fact that the apartment is on the 2nd floor, it might not suit those with more limited mobility but was ideal for my wife and I.
