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...

We stayed at Villa Torretta in late September 2014 and loved everything about it. We stayed in room 9 which was at the very top of the building. We had a lovely view and the room was very comfortable….large modern bathroom, large bedroom with a queen sized bed and a large terrace outside. The location next to the ferry terminal... More

Room 8 was amazing. With views overlooking the harbor, a provincial charm, the location was incredibly convenient with an easy walk from the small train station and the ferry shuttle only steps away with regular service to other lake communities. We did not have a car, and this was not limiting. We toured Bellagio, hiked and simply wandered. Thank you,... More

My husband and I ended our two week tour of Northern Italy with a three night stay at the Villa Torretta. We stayed in Room 7 and were amazed at the gorgeous views we had overlooking Lake Como from our room. The room was spacious, clean, historic as well as quiet. We had a rental car with us and parking... More

Stayed at Villa Toretta Sept 25 - 28. Beautiful, sparkling clean, historical. Laura the owner oversees every aspect of this lovely bed and breakfast and it clearly shows. What a wonderful way it was to begin my Italy trip. I was in room 8 and I still can't get over the views. I had a balcony overlooking Lake Como and... More

Varenna is a GORGEOUS town, perfect for a launching point for all adventures around Lake Como. A short walk from the train station (be sure to pack fast and light - backpacking is ideal in the hilly and cobblestone town) gets you to the ferry station and adjacent Villa Torretta. We stayed in the very top-floor room. It's breathtaking, and... More

My friend and I recently spent two nights at the Villa Torretta. We had a lovely room with a balcony overlooking the waterfront. A few steps from the ferry, a short walk from restaurants and fabulous views all around. Just loved our breakfasts on the patio at the adjacent Hotel Olivedo. Had a few problems with the WiFi, which could... More

We stayed at Villa Torretta just one night but wished we'd stayed a week! Our room was absolutely beautiful (room 5). It was enormous and had a gorgeous lawned balcony area overlooking Lake Como. Truly amazing! Laura is a beautiful woman who treated us as we were the only guests there - nothing was too much trouble and she was... More

Positives - location on beautiful Lake Como, ferry access to visit other towns on the lake, proximity to Varenna and it's shops, restaurants, and attractions, proximity to train station, cleanliness of rooms, size of room Negatives - The only negative about this hotel was the gruffness of the staff - The woman at the front desk was not overly warm...
