Marilena was a great host, picked us up from the railway station and had the apartment ready for us. There was everything we wanted there in a great location on the square. Marilena was very helpful with suggestions of where to go and what to do.We can highly recommend it.

“Just like a private home!”

What a wonderful apartment! The very best place to stay in Varenna. Perfectly located on the square with wonderful views of the Square and churches. Lg nice bedroom w/bath,very very clean and new bath fixtures. Nice Nice living room with table and kitchen with second table and little balcony. Everything is clean and wonderful. We stayed four nights Spring 2016, wish it could've been many more! The owner was so more than gracious to us. This little apartment is a jewel. I slept in the living room on the sofa bed because my husband had a cold. It was A GREAT bed and super comfy. Not like the normal sofa bed. Would be good for two couples because of that. Summing it up this apartment feels like you walk into someone's private home, everything you possibly could need, would be there, and you can just settle in and enjoy your time. I would so highly recommend this apartment to anyone, feel free to contact me for questions.

This is a lovely apartment located in central Varenna but literally 3 min walk to the lake. Very well furnished and well equipped with amenities. Marilena was extremely helpful in picking us up from the station (at 9:30 in evening) and dropping is back and also explaining various things about the town and the apartment. Thank you for making our stay comfortable.

“A lovely apartment with everything in Piazza San Giorgio in Varenna”
Reviewed October 24, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Our seven day holiday in Casa Maddalena in Varenna was everything we could wish for. Marilena is an amazing person - so warm and welcoming. After meeting us at the railway station Marilena drove us around Varenna and pointed out various points of interest and useful things such as where to buy groceries, the bank, restaurants and where to buy the best fresh fish. Marilena lives on the floor below and is extremely helpful and provided all the local knowledge we needed regarding restaurants, activities and using the local ferries to experience the wonderful towns around the lake.

The apartment is in a great position overlooking Piazza San Giorgio, with a view of the church, restaurants and day to day activities of the friendly local people. This apartment is very clean and has everything you need - it has large rooms, free wi-fi, satellite TV, fully equipped kitchen plus washing machine. Lake Como is very beautiful and we enjoyed our ferry trips to the various beautiful towns on this lake.

We woke every morning at 7 am to the sound of church bells. In the week we were there we watched a wedding at the lovely church, attended a wine and food festival in the square as well as open air cinema one night. Walking to and from the ferry dock along the lakeside walk is breathtaking - spectacular scenery, lots of buzzy restaurants, exquisite local arts and crafts shops and you can also take cooking classes.

Even though we were leaving on an early morning train Marilena drove us to the station. Marilena and her lovely Casa Maddalena made our stay unforgettable.

Marilena was very helpful and her apartment is homely and comfortable in an excellent central location. We were met at the train station and after our week's visit driven back there again. Everything we needed was provided, it is all scrupulously clean and I have no hesitation in recommending this as a great place to stay.
