“Outstanding location, quaint furnishings but very clean and comfortable”

Stunning location in the best village in the mid lake district on Lake Como. Varenna is a superb location, both picturesque and free of the pressing tourist traffic. The apartment is well cared for, even allowing for the items of grandma's furniture and poor pots and pans (but who really rents for pots and pans?). It is quiet and you can't beat sitting on the balcony watching the ferries and world go by, drink in hand...would we book again? You bet!

Luigi will make you feel welcome, we were met at the railway station and wandered down the hill to Casa Ferry. The apartment was magnificent, we opened the windows that let in a gentle cross breeze and the background hum of cafes, tourists and ferries. It has all the appliances needed, clean a modern feel with many touches of home in the furniture and bedside lighting. A perfect position for our family of four to explore and enjoy Varenna.

We totally loved staying here. The views out every window are off the charts. This unit certainly has everything you need. They met us at the train station and delivered us to the unit. The location is totally perfect. We are hating to leave. Truly is the best.

“Wonderful rental on Lake Como”

Having travelled extensively including 6 times to Italy and once previously to Belagio, Luigi's "Ferry Apartment" stands above the rest as far as location, comfort, and value. The apartment is much nicer than pictured and recently very tastefully remodeled. It is light, bright ,spacious, and well appointed and supplied.

There are beautiful views from 2 decks and every window looking over Varenna and Lake Como. The apartment is well located above the ferry terminal and within easy walking distance of the entire town. Except for the noise of the ferries it is quiet and comfortable. It is without air conditioning and heats up in the afternoon, but is well ventilated by the doors and windows.

Varenna is a short ferry ride to Belagio where there is more shopping, but having stayed there in the past, I see advantages to Varenna as it is less crowded and equally or more beautiful with it's preservation of Mid Evil cobblestone, stone walls and structures.

I can't say enough to recommend this wonderful apartment located in one of the most beautiful places in the world.

Varenna is stunning and the apartment is fantastic and together they are a dream.
The scenery in Varenna is fabulous and the people are lovely and very helpful.
The apartment has everything you need and the view from the balconies are the best.
I would recommend Varenna and this apartment to anyone, just brilliant.
We hope to return soon.

“Wonderful views and location”

We just returned from a trip to Tuscany and 4 days in Varenna at the end to relax. This condo has beautiful views from both balconies and a great location! Luigi met us at the train station and took us to the apartment and gave us very good recommendations for dining and sightseeing. The pictures did not do the view justice - the lake is just beautiful from the balcony and every morning was spent there with coffee and every evening with a glass of wine before dinner. There are very good restaurants just a few steps away from the apartment and more a short walk to the town center. Varenna is a perfect place to stay on the lake - much quieter and less touristy than Bellagio and easily accessible by train and by the ferries. We even took the Bernina Express to St. Moritz from town for a beautiful day trip in the Alps.

“Ideal and beautiful location”

This property is in an ideal location, centrally located and equal distance, short walk from the train and ferry stations. The living room/kitchens area has two balconies, one with a view of the north end of the lake and one with a south view. The windows in the bedroom share a similar spectacular view. Luigi was great to work with and met us on time at the train station to take us to the property as well as make some recommendations for local shops and restaurants. After staying here we went to Bellagio but I found Varenna to be so much more beautiful and charming.
