Casa Olea is a small residence made of 4 apartments for a number from 2 to 6 persons. Every room of the house has view on the lake and each apartment exits on the garden separated one to the other by a jasmine hedge.

Casa Olea - RED apartment
The main attraction of Olea House is its stunning 180 degree view of Lake Como. The house is a superb example of a restoration which is sympathetic to its surroundings. The former farmhouse blends traditional Italian style with contemporary features. The original stone structure has been retained and stone and wood are still the main components. The interior is both modern and functional. The garden, disturbed only by birdsong and hourly church bells, is a haven of tranquillity and relaxation; the private swimming pool as well as the nearby tennis and basket ball court will ensure your complete enjoyment. Everything is designed for the guests to feel comfortable and to make their holiday on Lake Como unforgettable. The house is located in the small village of Perledo, 2 miles drive from Varenna and 50 feet up a hill. Casa Olea takes its name from the 300 olive trees belonging to the property and every November there is an olive picking festival.

A view of Lake Como that you will remember forever
We strayed in the RED apartment and the view from the balcony and the unit was stunning. The apartment is clean and simply furnished with lovely natural materials (Stone and exposed wood beams). The kitchen is basic, but has what you need. Be sure to bring you groceries as there are not shops/restaurants nearby. You will need a car to make your way back to Varenna (via curvy mountain roads) for dinners. If you just want to relax and soak in the view, this is your place. We also wandered the streets and found the MOBILE market (food truck with groceries) which was fun. So peaceful and beautiful. The church bells (right above you) are memorable and charming as well. Great place!
Großartige Lage, wundervoller Blick auf den Comer See, sehr gepflegte Anlage. Super Appartement.
Wer tolle Architektur mit viel Glas und allen Vor- und Nachteilen liebt, wird sich sehr wohlfühlen. Super Lage direkt im Ortskern von Perledo und an den Wanderwegen.
Great house, phenomenal view and excellent pool
Looks even better in real life!
Loved it! Modern with a old world feel
Rita Faggi (338-855-4687)the cab driver took great care of us.
Stunning views, great location!
My husband and I just stayed at this property and it was perfect! Luciana was a delight to work with prior to arriving. The location is wonderful, we arrived at the Varenna train stop and took a cab up to the house (5-10 drive) . There happened to be a cab waiting at the train stop, but if there had not been, Luciana had previously send me the number for one if we needed it. When we arrived the home was extremely clean and had everything we needed. We stayed in the RED apartment which has a small balcony with was perfect to take in the stunning views of the lake while enjoying our wine. Our cab driver was extremely helpful in pointing out a small local market that is within walking distance of the house.
The house has a lot of natural light, which I loved, but if you are a sleeper who is sensitive to like (like i am!) I would highly recommend bringing an eye mask.
Side note: our cad driver also pointed out a walking trail that you can take all the way down to Varenna to catch the water ferry. The trail was gorgeous! But don’t be fooled, signs say 0.2km to Varenna from the house- we clocked it on our watches and it was almost a mile- still worth it though!
This was the perfect ending to our trip to Italy! I highly recommend this property and hope to come back soon!
The best Home Away!
We loved our stay here, the house was great. A little bit of a walk to get up and down from town, but enjoyable to see. We also were able to access some local hiking trails that run along the lake. We will definitely stay here again.
