Stayed in Orange House in Varenna for three nights in June. Hosts were lovely, Piero spoke good English and was very helpful. His wife Mara spoke less English but produced great Italian style breakfasts every morning. Varenna was one of the highlights of our trip. The best spot on Lake Como, if you prefer a much less commercial experience when... More

I stayed 2 nights at Orange House in Varenna, and I was very pleased with the B&B. It was a very short walk from the train station. Head down the hill, turn left at the street, and the apartment complex is on the left side of the street. Look for the little sign at the gates. The place has a... More

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
