I think Villa Torretta is in the perfect location, it is walking distance from the train station, right on Lake Como, across the street from the lake's ferries, and a short walk into downtown Varenna. I had the room in the tower, large windows with stunning views of the lake. The bathroom and bedroom were large. The villa is gorgeous,... More

We've had five days touring Como with a different hotel every night. This hotel was not the most expensive but it was by far the best! What an amazing building, full of original antique Italian furniture (this was apparently the residence of the local doctor!). The Villa is owned by the family run hotel across the palazzo, so there are... More

Arriving in beautiful Varenna on a return visit and seeing the Villa Torretta is something I've looked forward to for months! It was truly a wonderful trip, and knowing that our favorite place to stay was ready for us made it all the more fun to anticipate. This lovely villa is lovingly tended -- the grounds are immaculate, and the... More

This is our forth or fifth time to stay at Villa Torretta and, what can I say--We keep coming back because it is always a great experience. This visit, we stayed in room 8--it has a nice deck for viewing the lake and having a evening drink or a picnic. The bathroom has double sinks and a lot of light.... More

Villa Toretta is part of the Albergo Olivedo hotel. It is set up with 5 outstanding large rooms, each with their own large bathrooms. Rooom 8 has a large balcony, overlooking the magnificent Lake Como. Our meals are served at the hotel which is approx 10mt away. The food, staff and service is outstanding. The ferry is out the front... More

We thoroughly enjoyed are all too short visit to this lovely town and the Villa was perfectly located near the ferry dock for excursions on the lake and within walking distance to the train station. There was easy access to the town and a lovely lakeside walk. Our room was at the top of the Villa with a gorgeous wrap... More

We stayed at Villa Toretta and were pleasantly surprised to be given the best room in the villa (Room 8), with a big balcony overlooking the lake. The villa may be a bit outdated in its appearance, but its location, view and the hospitality of Laura and the other staff made our stay memorable.

Villa Torretta exceeded our expectations. Beautiful relaxing reception rooms, great bathroom facilities, comfortable bed, excellent free wi-fi. Breakfast is taken at the nearby hotel, juice, Prosecco, fruits, cereals, croissants, great coffee - all served by friendly helpful multi-lingual staff. Laura was a delight and pleasure to deal with (and we found out, after hearing noises late one night, that she... More

My parents and I stayed 2 nights this past April. Laura, the manager, went out of her way so many time to ensure I was comfortable. The villa is classic Italian flare, very clean, awesome shower/bathroom and my room had an amazing view of the water and little port. I stayed in Room 7 which I recommend because of the... More

Upon arriving at Villa Torretta the first impression was it was old. It is old, but well maintained, very roomy, crisp clean linens and rooms, and convenient to the ferry. Breakfast is included with numerous choices. It is walking distance from interesting restaurants along the water. The management was accomodating and stored our luggage while we took the ferry to...
