“A perfect base for Lake Como and Varenna”

In a 10 day trip, the three nights here were our best. This was not only due to the beautiful location and the great weather we had but because the apartment was clean, comfortable and fairly priced. The landlady and her friend explained everything to us perfectly and we did not have to contact them for the rest of the time we were there. The Kitchen was functional, the beds comfortable. You will be awake at 7 with the church bells but its a nice way to begin your day. Things were busy in town on the weekend but absolutely dead on the Monday. Keep up the great work.

Lara is very friendly and helpful and met us from the train station. The location is perfect and the apartment is large and good value. I can't stress how fab the location is. On the square, yet with stunning lake views. We are returning this August and can't wait!

I concur with all the positive comments that have been made.
The property is centrally situated, a great view from all windows, very well appointed, spacious, and the owner is extremely hospitable and always helpful.
I was picked up from the railway station on arrival, and returned on departure.
I am a hard marker, but this one is very good.

“Lovely house and even a lovelier hostess”

I am so very glad that I chose Marina House to stay at Varenna during our stay at lake como. Varenna is a beautiful little village on lake como and this apartment is in a scenic location with a view of the lake. The house is fairly large for 1 bedroom and has all the amenities. Moreover the hostess Lara is a very sweet and gem of a person. She made sure that our stay was very comfortable. I would wholeheartedly recommend marina house to others to stay and hope I get a chance to stay again there :)

We had a lovely stay in varenna and the apartment reflected the thoughtfulness of the hosts. We really appreciated the amenities included - wifi, washing machine, books to read, paper towels, serviettes, etc. The apartment was spacious and cheerful and Lara and Alessia welcomed us with a drink when we arrived - that was a lovely touch.
The location suited us as it was in the main square where the grocer and bar were located. It was great to return to the apartment after our outings especially hot showers ( pack a lunch if you are walking the mule track from varenna to bellano - nothing was opened).
We would be very happy to stay here again.
