Stay in this Lake Como rental apartment overlooking the lakeshore town of Varenna, populated with romantic panoramas and beautiful old houses. Plentiful olive and cypress trees are evidence of the mild climate in the area around this apartment on Como Lake. Built on a rocky promontory over the lake, Varenna has been the heart of the area for centuries, an ideal place to explore or relax whenever you decide to leave the privacy of your Lake Como accommodation. A romantic walkway, abounding in flora, wends along the lakefront in town, linking it to Olivedo, a landing point for steamers and ferries.
(100 m2) Casa Antonella 2 is an apartment within a villa standing amidst a wealth of greenery, looking out over red-tiled roofs to a magnificent lakeshore view.

We would recommend this to a party of 3 or 4. It's cozy and quiet for the most part. Love the church bells !
We loved the charm of the countryside and the outstanding views from the apartment.
The only drawback was that it was situated so that vehicles going up to the castle could go no further than Casa Antonella 2 and needed to park right beneath the apartment area, therefore causing excessive noise.
The falcons surrounding the castle area, the talented jewelry designer on the way to the castle, the friendliness of the locals even though we could not always communicate! We loved Stella, the woman who cleaned and was helpful to us, and her charming little daughter, Sara. They made us feel so very welcome!
