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 receive a key to the house on arrival so you can come and go as you please. We were given a room with twin beds and a private bathroom across the hallway. There is a double room with en suite bathroom upstairs. Our room was very clean, the beds comfortable and there was plenty of cupboard space, as well as a small desk. Breakfast, which is optional, was simple but ample: tea and coffee, cheese, ham, bread, juice, yogurt and cereal. Enough to set you up for the day. Piero is very helpful with tourism information, and he has materials in English for non-Italian speakers. We stayed two nights and thoroughly recommend Orange House. With only two rooms, you'll need to book ahead. Check out is at 10.00 am. Prices are extremely reasonable given the popularity of the area. We paid €68 per night including breakfast. The rooms are not air conditioned, but they do have ceiling fans which is more than adequate. The B&B is five minutes from the ferry wharf from where you can visit other lake towns like Bellagio.
