Two days before arriving in Varenna we were notified that it was not available for no other reason than It was beyond their control. I was offered Casa de Messa at the same price. I agreed... More

We stayed at Maria's house for four nights in July. Maria and her husband were excellent communicators during the booking process. They very kindly met us at the train station, drove us to the villa, helped us up the stairs with the luggage and showed us around the apartment. They also made some recommendations for eating out - they were... More

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

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
