“Beautiful apartment in idyllic lakeside setting”
Reviewed 24 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

This apartment is situated in Varenna's Old Town and is right on Lake Como. It has a double balcony from which you can see Menaggio and other towns on the eastern shore, the mountains,boats criss-crossing the lake, the lakeside walk and little bars and restaurants nearby. You can watch the sun go down behind the mountains each evening! The apartment is clean, light and airy with a well-equipped kitchen, a very comfortable bed and a good-sized sofa bed. It is very convenient for the ferry boat terminal and the railway station. Luigi, the owner, was very prompt in all his communications and kindly met us at the station when we arrived and gave us a lift to the apartment and generally ensured we were settled in. Varenna itself has an ample choice of excellent restaurants, 2 small but amply-stocked shops and at least 3 ice-cream parlours and a take-away pizzeria.

Lots of cobbled steps and pavements though in Varenna so apartment would not be suitable for anybody with mobility problems and, because of the balcony, maybe not for young children. This is clearly stated in the description though. Sensible shoes advised!!
