  • Enjoyed our stay!

    "The views from the Villa are fabulous. The villa has been beautifully remodeled with the highest quality features. It was well equipped with everything we needed for our stay. The location was good, just a few extra steps out of the main part of town to reach the Villa, perhaps an additional 5 minute walk. For those with mobility problems though, the extra walk is a little strenuous because it is uphill and then there are many steps up to the villa. The apartment we stayed in was a little awkward though because it had a white curtain that extended the length of a glass wall that had a view to the downstairs main lobby. We could hear the Property Manager during the day below. It was a little annoying and detracted a bit from the serenity of the property, But, there is nothing they can do about it since it is the way it was remodeled. I suggest if you don't want to be disturbed by that, to book one of the other apartments. Since we had some rain, we probably spent more time inside that most guests who are there when the weather is beautiful. My only other complaint is the beds. We had two bedrooms. The Master Bedroom with the insuite bath had a very hard mattress with no spring to it and no fiberfill on the top. It was even harder than most European mattresses. The other bedroom had a mattress with that was firm but had some spring to it, but it squeaked with every little movement. I think with the amount we paid $319 E a night, the quality the mattress's should be better.The Property Manager was very courteous and helpful. I would definitely recommend the villa to friends."

  • Beautiful Stay in Varenna Apartment

    "We very much enjoyed our stay at the Varenna Apartment. There was plenty of space for four people and the unit is well equipped. It was very helpful to have a clothes washer and drying rack. The view from the apartment of Lake Como is wonderful and we had great weather for most of our October stay. Unless you are used to hiking you will likely want to have a car to stay at this apartment. The walking path from Varenna is very steep and the path to the nearest market up the hill is also very steep. You can walk to Varenna or the the Market in under 15 minutes if you are in reasonable condition. We did not have a car and we did just fine and I often took a nice morning walk up the market to get fresh bread. If you drive there is an automatic gate into the garage. The agent for the apartment could not have been more helpful and responsive. She gave us a ride in her car from the railroad station to the apartment and back when we were leaving. The one area we thought could be improved was the shower. The tub at the base of the shower is a little unusual and the temperature control is little sensitive. The apartment was very quiet. We would definitely recommend this apartment to others."

  • Clean, well stocked apartment in great loacation

    "My husband and I enjoyed our stay in this Varenna apartment, which was close to the ferry, restaurants, and shops. The apartment was clean and perfect for our needs. We would rate this as 5 stars if not for two issues: (1) The WiFi was provided by a nearby hotel, but we had no connection in the apartment itself. (2) The mattress on the bed was very soft and bothered my husband's back. Otherwise, we would definitely recommend the apartment."

  • Great Apartment

    "We have stayed at Maddalena House twice now, so we obviously love it there. Marilena is a fabulous hostess, and the apartment has absolutely everything you could possibly need. Is is situated on the lovely San Giorgio Square, where you can literally hang out the window to watch the passersby. Great dining right nextdoor, just steps away. 3 beautiful churches on the little square, one of which dates back to the 11th Century! Varenna is a beautiful little village, and Maddalena House the perfect apartment where you will feel like a local!"
