What a wonderful place we have found. A beautiful pallazo in the middle of Varenne. Lush gardens and friendly staff. Outside breakfast with great Italian coffee. Could not wish for more. Well one more thing ( which we did) skinny dipping in the lake from the stepps to the lake 😉

In Varenna for a day, we decided to try the Villa Cipressi for one of their quick lunches and were so glad we did. I had a salad and my husband chose the meat and cheese platter. Both were very well presented and enjoyed in the beautiful setting of the terrace overlooking the lake. The service was impeccable and friendly.... More

The hotel is such a beautiful old house with its original features. The gardens around it are fantastic especially if you want a romantic holiday. In the evening it turns into a magical place. The restaurant is very good with delicious food served by attentive staff. Actually all the staff were excellent from receptionists to the chamber maids. They are... More

Had a wonderful stay in Villa Cipressi. Without exception the staff were charming and most helpful and gave us lots of useful information in regard to local restaurants, ferries. places to visit etc. The gardens were absolutely lovely but would also suggest visiting Villa Monastero next door which were even nicer. Everything is within easy walking distance including some great... More

We had air con in our room and a safe. Our bathroom was more of a wet room but some of my friends who were staying had proper... More

This hotel is simply stunning. The rooms are modest and clean. This isn't your fully kitted out high flying kind of place. What it does, it does well. The rooms have everything you may need. But let's be honest the real reason you are thinking about visiting this hotel... are out of the window. The views and setting are simply... More

We loved Villa Cipressi's gardens and location on Lake Como! The hotel is beautiful, and our room was quiet, spacious and clean. We had requested a quiet room, and we got one that faces the lake. While there was no Air conditioning, the ceiling fan kept us very cool at night. From the hotel it was a two minute walk... More

As other reviewers have noted: unbeatable views, gorgeous gardens, historic and comfortable ambience, amazing breakfasts and dining. This place has it all - the very definition of Italian romantic sojourn. The staff, especially David, were exceptionally helpful and accommodating. Cannot wait to return!!!

This old hotel on Lake Como has beautiful views and beautiful gardens. The rooms were very good and met my criteria for a 3 star Italian hotel. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I highly recommend walking the gardens. It's free for guests but 4 Euros for non-guests.

Visited there 2 times and would go every day if possible. The gardens are beautiful and the restaurant is excellent. We enjoyed a few lunches there and the food was delicious and well-priced. We also visited when there was an orchestra and it was so tranquil sitting in the garden to listen to it.
