This brand new Residence has been built on the site of the famous quarry that once supplied the black marble used in the construction of the amazing Duomo in Milan.
This well designed and contemporary apartment offers generous living accommodation, perfect for a couple and offers the most stunning panoramic views imaginable over Varenna & Lake Como which can only be described as SPECTACULAR!
The extra-ordinarily large living room windows & vaulted wooden ceilings allow the sun to flood into the lavish yet cosy living space where you can wine & dine from the kitchen area, spilling out onto the balcony from where you won’t be able to prise yourself away!
The double bedroom is stylish and very comfortable and the brand new Bathroom suite also exudes a contemporary and tasteful style, making this property ideal for a romantic getaway!
*Please note the WiFi signal can be weak due to the hillside location*
Varenna is one of the most picturesque towns on the lake, its steep winding alleys lined with charming homes, flowering balconies and lace-curtained windows. Just above it is the ancient Castle of Vezio where Theodolinda, Queen of the Lombards, is said to have died in the 7th century. Two famed villas to visit here are Villa Cipressi, with terraced gardens cascading right down to the shores, and Villa Monastero, a true showcase.
A distinctive feature of Varenna is it's mild climate; olive & cypress trees abound as well as many other variety's of lush, tropical plants, typical if the lake. Varenna enjoys abundant sunshine & warmth right into the evening.
This old fishing village has several very interesting shops; from local butchers to craft shops and bars, as well as many restaurants ranging from simple but fabulous pizzerias and trattorias, to elegant dining experiences with lake views. Varenna offers excellent rail links to Milan & Venice! Plus there are ferry links to all the gorgeous villages & towns along Lake Como's shores; it makes a great base for exploring the area.
Skiing in the area is bountiful with resorts such as Madesimo 1.15 hours to the north and the local ski resorts of Piani di Bobbio & Pien della Betulla are only 40 - 50 minutes away. And for an exciting day trip any time of year, why not go on the beautiful drive, through the Alps, to the international jet-set resort of St. Moritz, only 1.5 hours by car.

I must start by saying that we had a wonderful holiday and there is nothing negative to say about anything.
After we booked the holiday we appreciated the regular email updates and the instructions on how to find the apartments were very helpful, especially the photos.
Would recommend information about the nearest supermarkets.
Danilo was very helpful. I was able to text him with a couple of queries, to which he replied promptly.
The apartment was fantastic, especially the wonderful views. The kitchen was very well equipped for a one bedroom property.
The bathroom had just been refurbished and was better than we had seen in the photos. The illuminated toilet was very impressive! As was the large walk-in shower. The apartment was spotlessly clean and smelled very fresh.
We used the lake to travel to other towns -we found the boat and ferry services prompt and efficient.
We enjoyed an excellent dinner at The Vista restaurant and some tasty and reasonably priced light lunches at various bars and restaurants.
We enjoyed a walk to Castillo de Vezio, the views from the top were breath-taking. We visited Lenno on Tuesday morning when the market was on, and walked round to Villa Balbianello in the afternoon. We took the longer walk back through the woods to Lenno. This was a very scenic route where we found wild cyclamen and Alpine strawberries growing by the path.
A lovely surprise was to hear a cuckoo calling behind the apartments every evening. Because the apartments are surrounded by trees the birdsong was wonderful to hear.
One of our favorite outings was a drive up into the mountains behind the apartments, where the views of the lake and snow capped mountains were even more impressive. We saw and heard goats wandering around with bells round their necks and a hillside covered with wild flowers including orchids where many brightly colored butterflies were feeding. There was also a cuckoo calling here - truly heavenly and to be recommended.
Attached are a few of our hundreds of photos taken on our wonderful holiday. Thank you for helping to make it so great.
I am just recovering from jet lag just now. I just want to express all our appreciation for opportunity to rent your apartment in Varenna few weeks ago. It is a wonderful place to stay.
Thank you very much for all your help and attention.
The property we stayed at was totally perfect. The directions, pictures to help find the unit really helped. The staff was very polite. Having a company representitive to meet us in the parking lot on Sunday gave us suggestions for our trip that changed what we planned to do for the positive.
