We have spent our holidays for almost 10 years now at Laura´s Villa Torretta. We always book the combination of two double rooms with dinner. The Villa consists only of 5 rooms, therefore it feels exactly like home. The bathrooms are very luxurious. The dinner room in nearby Hotel Olivedo is furnished in Art nouveau. In summertime from april to... More

We could not ask for a more pleasing revisit to Lake Como. Our five days at Villa Torretta were beyond our expectations. Our front room (#5) faced the lake and we were entranced looking out to the promenade, the ferries coming and going, and the lovely changing colors of the water views. I am a very light sleeper but my... More

In late September we did a 2-week road trip in Switzerland which ended in Northern Italy on our way back to Geneva. Happenstance led us to Varenna and Villa Toretta. We had stayed at Hotel Olivedo 8 years ago on one of our first trips to Italy & we loved it. This stop in Varenna was not planned, but when... More

Four of us (2 couples) stayed three nights in Varenna at Villa Torretta. We selected Varenna on Lake Como as our "home base" on the advice of Rick Steves and we had to agree that this was a great choice. We loved the town, its sights, and its restaurants. Villa Torretta has lots of old world charm. Our room (5)... More

After reading mixed reviews, we booked for what seemed a good price:value. We were not disappointed. We were given a room that is separate from the main villa and very large in size, especially for European standards. Room was very clean and well looked after. Tiny balcony that had a lake view, but the surrounding gardens were right outside and... More

We visited early May while picking up our daughter from Milan. We hoped that a quick 2 day/1 night trip to Varenna could work within our schedule and this B&B was a perfect complement. The train from Milan is quick and the walk from the station is straight downhill to the picture perfect lake setting and this quaint little inn.... More

There are a few mixed reviews on this B & B so we were anxious to stay and give our own view of the experience. The Inn is just a short stroll down hill from the train station and easy to find, as it is next to the sister property and right across from ferry station. We found the owner... More

The owner-operator of this place - Laura - is less than honorable. Was given the "top floor" room which is nothing more than small attic with slanted roof and unfinished floor. Mold/mildew in this place. Refused to stay, and Laura refused to change anything - except made an exception to CHARGE CREDIT CARD for the 1-night stay we didn't stay.... More

We recently stayed at Villa Torretta in Varenna and it was a great place to stay for a first time visit to Lake Como. It is near the train station and ferry service. The room had a very comfortable bed and a large bathroom with 2 sinks. Also had a large terrace which we enjoyed sitting on to people watch... More

Stayed 3 nights with my husband in mid September. The weather was perfect. About 70 for a high, sunny, with a light breeze each day. Friends joined us on day two and three. The town of Varenna is compact and lovely to walk around. Hiked to a nearby castle and took a ferry to nearby Bellagio. Our room was on... More
