We stayed at Villa Torretta in early July. We had a wonderful stay. The hotel is a classic, with beautiful common rooms. Laura and staff were very accommodating, going out of their way to get us food when we first arrived and when we left early in the day. Laura made sure she knew who we were and we felt... More

The villa is an easy walk from the station, the villa was spacious, with nice communal areas inside and out. It was very close to the lake shore, with a lovely view. The owner Laura was a great character. Very helpful and generous. I have read some negative reviews of the staff and noise levels. Cannot understand them. The noise... More

As a mature couple on our first visit to Italy we certainly did well choosing Villa Torretta as our accommodation on Lake Como. We stayed for 6 nights and our host, Laura, could not have been more helpful.Our room was very comfortable and had a lovely balcony overlooking the lake. Varenna is a beautiful place and well placed to access... More

My wife booked us in here for a couple of days. She'd stayed before and was a but worried that I'd find it too basic. Far from it. The room and villa are so much in keeping with the vibe if the area. Varenna is beautifully understated next to Bellagio. Highly recommended if you want to dodge the tourist throng... More

Varenna is the perfect place to stay when visiting lake como. Easy 1 hr train ride from milan central. The B&B is an easy 5min walk from the train station in Varenna. Stayed at villa Varenna for 2 nights and we loved it! We had a room with a huge balcony and amazing view. B&B is on the quieter side... More

I spent 2 nights here on a warm weekend in June. Laura was very welcoming and personable, as were the restaurant staff. The accommodation is very nice - timber floors, "country style" furniture and french doors give it warmth of character, while the fixtures are all modern and comfortable - excellent bed, shower and aircon. The restaurant attached to the... More

My daughter and I arrived in Varenna very excited about exploring Lake Como. I had booked a room at the Villa for 3 nights and a room at the hotel for 2 nights and had done a bit of homework. We wanted a lake view with a balcony so we had managed to secure room 8 in the Villa. I... More

As I opened the door to Hotel Olivedo, Laura lit up when she saw me and said, "I know who YOU are!" with a smile as if we were old friends. How sweet as she had never met me and we'd just exchanged emails to make and finalize our reservation. After giving us a quick rundown of the keys to... More

Beautiful lakeside 19th century Italian villa. All rooms have a wonderful Lake Como views. 3 of the 6 rooms have a balcony, but the villa has a large shared balcony looking out on the lake for all rooms to use. Furnished with antiques. Breakfast is next door at the hotel. Ferry landing is 30 yards out the front door.
