About the neighbourhood
Lake Como has been visited and valued by travellers since Roman times, with mountains and valleys to explore and the lake to criss-cross, discover the many places to see and famous villas to admire during your stay. It is possibly unique in the fact that you can be a mountain biker, a hiker, a walker or simply someone who likes to potter and sightsee, it is all close by. Restaurants and bars are just a few paces away , although our central location is peaceful due to it's unparalleled position right on the lakeside.
Getting around
Here in Varenna we are well served by a frequent train service from Milan central, our station here is called Varenna-Perledo-Esino.
Il giardino is right on the lake in the old part of Varenna and you can reach the train station or the ferry terminal very easily and quickly from the house, on foot.
I usually collect guests from the station as it is easier and quicker if they have luggage.
Car not needed
How to get there
Easiest airports to travel to and from are Linate , bus from airport to Milano Centrale station, then a train (direction Sondrio) which stops at Varenna-Perledo. The same from Bergamo-Oro al Serio, changing in Lecco. Malpensa is further away,, but trains and shuttle buses are there to take you into Milano centrale, and train up from there nearly every hour during the day. Taxis from the village are available to collect you if you are looking for comfort.
