“Ideal Location-Arrived as Guests and Left as Friends!”
Reviewed 18 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

person found this review helpful

Casa Bella was the perfect apartment for our first week in Italy. We wanted an apartment that was centrally located in a more quaint town than the usual spots. Varenna was ideal because it is located close to a train station, yet accessible to Lake Como's more touristy sites by a quick ferry ride. (After 20+ hours of travel, we wanted to keep connections as simple as possible).

Luigi "Gigi" met us cheerfully at the train station, despite the fact that we missed the Varenna stop and had to backtrack from the next train station. Gigi picked us up at the train and got us settled in to Casa Bella. Air France has delayed our luggage, so Gigi gave us some tips on what to expect in terms of luggage coordination. We then were introduced to Giorgio, who was also amazingly helpful to us. Giorgio made some critical phone calls and our luggage was delivered to Varenna the next day. We are convinced that we would still be chasing our luggage around Italy were it not for the assistance of both Giorgio and Gigi.

Oh...back to the apartment! Casa Bella is located right on the waterfront, near the ristorantes, gelaterias, etc. The view is fantastic from the private balcony. Wifi worked very well and we were well stocked in terms of dishes, cooking items, coffee, etc. There are only a couple of small stores where groceries may be purchased--no supermarkets, which only added to the charm of the town.

I have already recommended Casa Bella to my friends and am definitely planning to return!

Liked best: I appreciated the care provided by the owner, as well as the cleanliness and convenience to other Lake Como sites.
Liked least: Only thing that were acts of God. It rained during a portion of our stay.

“The Charm of Varenna”
Reviewed 6 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Ideally located, this apartment has a balcony for an apperitivo while watching folks stroll by and the boats on the lake. The apartment was clean, great hot water and quiet at night. Gigi was a great help and I look forward to coming back!
