The night before we left Varenna we enjoyed the best meal we ate in that town or in nearby Bellagio. We were seated in the outdoor terrace overlooking the lake. Our party of 5 could not be accommodated at one table and we agreed to sit at two tables. My trout was the freshest

I doubt it. We were there after the season closed in November but LOVED our time with almost no tourists to be seen. Breakfast in the dining room overlooking the ethereal mist lake was an event in itself.

The beach did not but the pool is overlooking the lake and has chairs. There are also chairs on the restaurant terrace. The beach itself is not really where you would want to hang out, it's small, rocky and adjacent buildings kinda overhang it.

Hello Sorry for the delay in responding I have been away. We selected the Dinner Bed & Breakfast... from memory the only restriction was at dinner where, if we wanted to sit at the very best tables down on the terrace an addition charge was levied. As it was the tables on the balcontywere just as good.
