Casa Riva was a perfect place to stay. Ideal location, great view and balcony where we spent many hours watching the people and the boats. Luigi couldn't have been more helpful and accommodating. Highly recommended!

“Best location in Varenna”
Reviewed September 9, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Spectacular morning coffees and sunset wines with spectacular view of lake, mountains and surrounding towns on the balcony. Located right on lakes and in the center of charming Varenna. A short walk to ferry, to train and even shorter stroll to wonderful restaurants and activities. Apartment has everything you need for a most pleasant stay. And hosted by Luigi offering great suggestions and assistance. A winner!

What a magic spot to stay. Love love Varenna and this apartment is in the perfect spot with the lake at your door step. Luigi was great and informative and a pleasure to deal with. Highly recommend this place.

“Amazing views in a great town!”
Reviewed July 6, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Varenna is a beautiful Lake Como town, not the hustle and bustle of the bigger towns, but full of great restaurants and activities.

The accomodation was superb, best views of the lake and town activity.

Loved Varenna

“wonderful stay on Lake Como”

Georgia greeted us at the train station and was a wonderful host during our stay in Varenna. The one bedroom apartment was lovely, and the view was unsurpassed. We were right in the small town, able to walk to get a few groceries, stroll through the scenic town, hike to the old castle and most importantly, RELAX! We would definitely consider returning to beautiful Lake Como, Varenna and Casa Riva! Many thanks Georgio!!

“Great location on Lake Como”
Reviewed May 16, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Luigi was very accommodating he made sure we had what we needed. The view from the apartment was just beautiful overlooking Lake Como. Loved the area, great for catching the Ferry to explore other lake spots and for walking, enjoyed our hike up to the Castle above the village.

“Consider Varenna as a place to stay on Lake Como.”
Reviewed April 28, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We were pleased we chose to stay at Varenna. Luigi met us at the train station to guide us to the apartment. It would be difficult to find the apartment without guidance. Luigi provided us with information about the apartment, how to get around, where to eat and anything else we needed to know. The apartment is in a great position. It looks directly over the lake and is in easy access to all that's happening. Overall the apartment provides all that is needed. The hot water in the shower was a bit dodgy and we were also concerned that we might overload the electrical system. In terms of ranking we would choose a 41/2 for position and a 31/2 for the accommodation.
