Varenna, Lake Como, Lombardy
Casa Mara, a spacious, cozy and romantic holiday house, is at the first floor of a historical building in the center of the beautiful Varenna. The house is located in the most famous area of Varenna. We are a stone's throw from the water, that is to say only 16 feet (5 meters) separates our door from the shore: too few not to feel the duty to have an appetizer with a cocktail over the terrace by looking at the sunset. Nevertheless, being in the city center provides Casa Mara with a collection of bars, restaurants, and cellars in the surroundings. Casa Mara consists of two floors, 120 square meters and can comfortably host up to 7 people.

We loved Casa Mara! It suited 5 adults very nicely. Marco, the owner's son, was waiting for us at the train station when we arrived. He helped with our bags and escorted us to the apartment. It was spotlessly clean, and well-equipped. They even left coffee, milk, and bottled water for us. Marco was very accessible when we had questions about the apartment. The newly added upstairs lounge area has breathtaking views of the lake....

My husband and I stayed here with another couple. We were met at the train station by the owner who personally escorted us to the apartment, showed us how to work everything, and make some great restaurant recommendations. They have added an upstairs lounge area with panoramic views of Lake Como. We spent a lot of time up there! We thought that the apartment was a great size with comfortable beds. Varenna is a wonderful...

You could not ask for more staying in Casa Mara. Paolo picked us up at the airport in Milan and we knew we were in for a wonderful stay the moment we met this lovely man. We chatted about Como, travel, food, wine and family on the hour or so drive to Lake Como. Paolo gave us the tour of the village on the way to the apartment and then showed us around his beautiful...
