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...

Villa Torretta is actually owned by Hotel Olivedo, a few steps away. It is a grand place with large rooms and renovated bathrooms. It is also within walking distance of the train station, a definite asset. It is also next to the pier where you take the boat to tour Lago di Como. However, because it is an older building,... More

Our stay at the Villa Torretta was great. Our hostess graciously waited up for our "late" arrival --after 1:00 a.m. -- when we had trouble phoning coming in over the Alps. Kind and friendly, she made us feel very welcome. Rooms are very large and the views from our balcony were stunning. Breakfast was steps away at the hotel our... More

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
