I am an elderly experienced world traveler, picky but not overly so, who does much research on accommodations before I travel, and am therefore usually pleased with where I end up. Clean, quiet, comfortable, convenient, friendly are my criteria, but I am a big fan of “olde worlde charme”. First of all, Varenna is THE place to stay on Lake... More

My husband and I stayed at Villa Torretta for three nights in October, enjoyed our stay, and would highly recommend Villa Torretta to other travelers. It is located on a small piazza opposite the car and passenger ferry docks with a superb view of Lake Como and the mountains across the lake. We didn't mind the comings and goings of... More

The Villa Torretta was the best room we stayed in during our week in Lake Como. The room was spacious with a big bathroom and shower. It overlooked the lake and the ferry landing is right in front. We were so glad we picked the villa over the main hotel. It only has a few rooms as it is an... More

First I will say the hotel is in an excellent location and is clean. Breakfast is included and I would rate it 5 on a scale of 1-10. If you are a fan of the program only Basil is missing. The owner is well interesting to say the least. The gentleman at breakfast is Manuel from the program, and I'm... More

This beautiful villa has only 5 rooms, all with wonderful views of Lake Como. We had the only room on the third floor (room #9) which was very clean & comfortable with a balcony & a great view of the lake. We got plenty of exercise climbing the stairs (no elevator). Our friends had rooms 7 & 8 on the... More

This was the first time we stayed in Varenna and this was the perfect location. The hotel views were incredible. We stayed in room 8 and had a very nice balcony overlooking the lake. The hotel does not have an elevator so you have to be able to do stairs but it has so much charm. There is also a... More

If you can't take a lot of stairs don't stay here. No lift! We had room 7 with a balcony and excellent views. Right by the ferry port and a small children's park. Very noisy on the weekends especially when all the vendors come in each day and set up very early. Trash pick up was at 5:30 AM and... More

Many, many flowing reviews for this place and in general well deserved. A few dings and kind of deserved. Yes the place can be loud. We had one night when a bunch of drunk germans came in and proceeded to slam every possible door. Twice! The villa is old, there's not much to be done about sound absorption and if... More

We stayed in Villa Torretta for three nights in room 8 (I think). It was on the second floor with a balcony facing the lake. What a place to sit, sip a glass and watch the world go by. The room was quite spacious, bright, comfortable and clean. We even had a vestibule connecting the room to the ensuite bathroom.... More

We spent three nights in Villa Torretta. I believe we stayed in room 8. It was on the second floor, and had the largest balcony of any room in the villa. We were warmly greeted by Laura, the owner and manager of the property, at the Hotel Olivedo just down the plaza from the villa. We showed ourselves to the... More
