Stayed here for a night after a mediteranean cruise to relax, wish we had stayed longer Laura was very accomodating, we had a big thunder storm come through but it just made the lake more interesting had an early train the next morning and the cafe opened early just for us

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.

I belabored this review because so much was a 5, but the things missing were the more intangible like having someone actually walk us over to our room upon arrival rather than thrusting a set of 3 different keys into our hands & pointing to the building down the street (yes, Laura lived up to her "crisp" reputation). We struggled... More

We returned from a fabulous holiday in Lake Como, we loved Villa Torretta. We had a great room with large balcony, we enjoyed a few cocktails with appetisers in the marina and then picking up pizza from Luigi's place and sitting on our balcony watching the sunset! Varenna is a great place to explore Lake Como with regular ferries. Breakfast... More
