We arrived via train into Varenna to spend a few days in Varenna. Hotel Villa Cipressi was recommended as well as requesting a lake view. We were not disappointed with these suggestions. The hotel is centrally located in the small village with easy walks to restaurants and the ferry to other places on Lake Como. The room was comfortable with... More

Stayed 6 nights in Aug 2014 for our best friend's wedding. The wedding reception was a dream. Most beautiful setting. From the tea light candles in the fountain to the glistening lake in the moonlight - it was perfect! Our room had a great view of the lake! We loved Davide on reception too. Breakfast was good! Hot chocolate was... More

Varenna is the most beautiful place I have ever been to, and Villa Cipressi made my dream wedding come true! I'm so in love with this place. Everything was so amazing that I couldn't even notice the small things that weren't so perfect! The lake view, the botanic garden, the staff, the food, the deluxe rooms, the location at a... More

There for a wedding so the hotel was full of guests which made it fun. However due to the fact it was a 2 night party and exclusive the second night the hotel refused to allow drinks on the first night so we had to go out. The weather was appalling and what you then discover is that the hotel... More

We were attending a wedding at the is hotel and what a lovely setting. The actual ceremony was at a different location, but the wedding breakfast was held here along with the reception. The hotel has a fantastic location overlooking Lake Como. The gardens are also a notable feature. The hotel itself is full of old world charm, with a... More

I cannot recommend Hotel Villa Cipressi highly enough as a wedding venue. We decided to tie the knot here in June 2014 following falling in love with Varenna and Lake Como on a previous holiday. The location is beautiful and we were able to tie the knot outside on the lakeside thanks to the weather behaving. We were able to... More

Such a nice location, such a nice place. Here you come for enjoying a stay at the shores of Lake Como old style. The rooms are big and most of them have fantastic lake views through huge windows. Do not expect modern luxury but feel like the owner of a beautiful vila with a glamorous garden for the weekend.

Just stayed at the Cipressi for 5 nights, we had the Villa Magnolia suite which is based in the grounds with its own private garden area and totally secluded, it was perfect and magical. The service from all the staff was exceptional and we have to especially mention Davido who went out of his way to make our stay so... More

Hotel Villa Cipressi was that starting point of our tour. Good sized room with lake view. Shower worked well. Thunder and lightning storm prompted a mini invasion of ants, but not a big deal. Good breakfast selection. Nice gardens to stroll through. Short walk to restaurants and such at the south end of the village. Fairly good hike from the... More
