It was raining when we arrived in Varenna and fortunately the walk to the B&B was quite short and an unexpected surprise was to be met at the gate by Piero who welcomed us with open arms. When walking from the railway station down the hill towards the lake the orange house is the block of apartments on your left... More

I drove in and they made me park in a garage. Extra un expected cost The towels were so harsh you got a defoliation after each shower. No soap in bathroom, shampoo etc. They have a washing machine, but you cannot use it. No A/C - room has 1 window and is on the road where you hear motor cycles... More

Piero and Mara give you a warm welcome to their B&B in Varenna, a small town on Lake Como. Easily accessible by train, the bed and breakfast is a short walk from the train station. Check in is between 1.30 and 3.30 pm but earlier or later arrivals can be accommodated by advising Piero and Mara prior to arrival. You... More

Piero was a warm and friendly host. His apartment is well located near the train station and is quite cool in summer (with the ceiling fan) even though it had no air conditioning. We had a difficult time locating the apartment though, so it may be helpful to note that his apartment is the block at the corner of the... More

I am so glad we (my daughter 23 and myself 51) chose Varenna and Orange House for our trip. The B&B is very close to the train station (less than 5 min.) and an easy walk to the ferry (5 min.) as well. Just know-everything is up hill! We had heavy luggage to tote and there are steps up to... More

We loved our stay in Varenna - it is a magical spot and this is just the place to rest after a day exploring and eating. Piero was just such a gentleman, gave great recommendations and his wife was so lovely bringing in breakfast each morning. We weren't great fans of Italian breakfasts throughout Italy but we certainly found enough... More

Great place to stay! Mara and Piero give the Orange House personal touches that make a stay there delightful. We are in our late 70's and appreciated that the Orange House was an easy walk from the train station and a short walk to where the boats dock. We hope we are fortunate enough to visit there again. It is... More

My wife and I stayed 2 nights in late Sept. 2012, and thorougly enjoyed the hotel and our hosts, Piero and Mari. We were on the upper floor adjacent to the common room (for breakfast and sitting about - not that there is any time for that!) Our room was mid sized, clean, very quiet and convenient. Mari's breakfasts were... More
