Discover the beauty of Lake Como with a villa in Varenna
Varenna is a beautiful village on the spectacular Lake Como in Lombardy, northern Italy. It is accessible by car as well as by train, as its station is served by the Tirano-Lecco railway line. A villa in Varenna is perfect for a relaxing break, or a romantic getaway, and it is not as crowded or flashy as some of the other towns on the lake. Varenna's holiday apartments and villas are conveniently located - the village has some 800 residents and is not large - and many are pet-friendly. Both on the shore and further into the village you will find a range of restaurants, cafés and trattorias serving delicious and good quality Italian food.
Explore the area during your stay in Varenna accommodation
The main attractions in the village are the villas Cipressi and Monastero, and the 10th century fortress Castello di Vezio, which offers fantastic panoramic views across the lake. From there you can see Bellagio, Griante, and Menaggio, all of which can be reached by ferry from Varenna. If you enjoy walking holidays, a villa in Varenna would be ideal; from there you can head along the lakeside or up into the hills, and there are even plenty of challenging hikes to be done. Perledo, tucked away in the hills above Varenna, makes a good day trip from the village.
