We spent 4 weeks at Maria's House, using it as a home base during a stay in Northern Italy. The apartment was a perfect size, was perfectly located and had perfect owners. We were able to cook meals in the kitchen, enjoy a large living space and comfortable bed and shower room. We were within easy access to several restaurants,... More

We stayed here for a week in August. The apartment lived up to expectations. We could easily walk to the ferry port and railway station. Maria met us from the station when we arrived. There are lots of restaurants and bars around. Varenna is a good centre to base yourself in. It was easy to catch a ferry to Bellagio.... More

We stay in Annina's House for 7 nights in July. Perfect location in Varenna. It was central to everything with wanted to do in Lake Como. There was plenty of choice for eating out. The apartment had everything you needed, even a washing machine and clothes rack. If you wanted to cook everything was there. Would not hesitate to recommend... More

My husband, my son and I stayed in Maria's House on our last visit to Italy. I did not write a review back then because it wasn't listed on Trip Advisor then. We loved it so much we just booked her other apartment, Annina's House (studio apartment) for April 2014. This time it will be just the two of us... More

Maria's house was a gem. It is only steps from St.Giorgio's square and a just a short stroll to the waterfront. The ferry terminal is about a 10 minute stroll away. The place is well furnished with everything you might want and has a warm, homey feel to it. We were there for only a few days but felt right... More

I requested a room for Sept. 25 and 26 in 2011, on Sept 21st of that year, just three days out. That same day they sent an email confirming a "double bath, TV, beautiful lake view...". We arrive at the train station in Varenna and hire a cab to take us to their B&B Fontelago. I then dial their phone... More

We stayed at the other property that Maria and Pietro own, called Annina's House. It was perfect! Maria and Pietro met us at the Varenna train station and took us (2 min by car) to the apartment. They are a very nice couple, and though they do not speak much English, are extremely friendly, warm and gracious people. This apartment... More

We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived. Not only was it a lovely, fully equipped apartment, but the location couldn't have been better (for the price). Sure, we could have spent 3-4 times as much per night on a hotel room with balcony overlooking the lake. However this apartment was located on the #1 most picturesque sidestreet in Varenna. Centrally... More
