Very Good

“Great location, amazing views, great value for the money.”

Reviewed 5 Jul 2013

We stayed for two weeks-the last week of May and 1st week of June this year. It was our 1st visit to the Lake Como area and it more than met our expectations. The views are spectacular in every direction. When we arrived in Milan instead of taking the train we hired a was about an hour's drive. The family that rents Casa Mara was so accommodating we felt right at home. They were very helpful in getting us settled and providing information about the area. They even called us halfway through our vacation to see if all was ok. No need to rent a car ...groceries and fresh produce are available in Varenna. Plenty of restaurants in the area need to go anywhere else, though you can take a ferry to other towns around the lake. We did several times. People are very friendly and most spoke English so communication was not difficult. Thanks to the property owner we had a great vacation and would do it again.

Varrena is delightful and Casa Mara a homely Italian apartment right in the centre; quiet and comfortable. The other reviews describe the apartment well. We were two couples enjoying exploring the central lake area. The ferries are fun and easy... lots of nice restaurants abound and many many interesting walks. We shall return!

Response from the owner Thank you Peter. We are looking forward to seeing you again

“A slice of Heaven”

Reviewed 28 Mar 2013

We were visiting Varenna and Lake Como for the first time from the australia. We spent an amazing week at this fabulous apartment! Fabio was at the railway station to meet us as promised and was helpful with getting our luggage to the building. He helped us to go over everything we needed to know about the apartment, area attractions and answer any questions. The rental is even better than it appeared in the photos and description. As others have described the apartment was very clean, well equipped, has plenty of room, and is in a great location (in the center of Varenna). We would highly recommend this apartment rental and hope to return back in the near future!

“Casa Mara, we'll go back!”

I want to take a minute to say how much we enjoyed our stay at Casa Mara: we loved its charm and wish we could have stayed longer. The apartment is located in the best central position of the town, a hair's breadth away from lake. The home was spacious and clean (thanks to the precise home owner, Mara). Owner's son came to the station in order to meet us, and he drove us to Casa Mara. We really enjoyed staying in this beautiful village, visiting the villas around the lake and walking in the mountains above it: on Sunday, Mara's husband, Paolo, guided us in the visit of Vezio's Castle. A kind family, an amazing lake view, an easy reservation and check-in, and a wonderful week! We want to return!

“a wonderful week in Casa Mara”

“a magic summer in Casa Mara”

Reviewed 20 Dec 2011

this house is something incredible! We spent a week there (august 2011). The owner is very helpful and his advices were very appreciated (we saw everything that was possible to see in Lombardy). We were in 5 people (my husband, my children and I) and we've been very happy for having chosen this accomodation. The house was very clean, no problem with anything. The kitchen has been useful, comfortable and full of comodities: oven, fridge, freezer, etc. The lakeview from the balcony was something incredible. And, the house is 2 or 3 foot far from the shore... we couldn't ask nothing better!
