Welcome to Maria's House, a lovely one-bedroom apartment ( 50 mq ) located in Varenna, an elegant village on the shore of Italy's Lake of Como. The beauty of the place is clearly evident in its ancient buildings, its romantic views, its impressive nature. A distinctive feature of Varenna is the mildness of the climate, which is proved by the olive trees, the cypress trees and other botanic species typical if the lake and is due to its special exposure: leant to the mountain, the village is facing south and west, so it is sunny and warm till late in the evening.
In the heart of Varenna's old quarter, just little steps from the water and the main square, the apartment looks onto a picturesque cobblestone pedestrian-only archway leading straight to the beach and the lakeside with the beautiful pubs, restaurants, shops and art galleries.
The rooms of this apartment on the first floor of a recently restored sixteen century building affords picturesque views of the lake. The hall, the bedroom, the bathroom with shower and the kitchen-sitting room with fireplace are bright and furnished with good taste, in a modern and functional style
No car is needed as you explore the ancient town of Varenna. Archways and steep, narrow lanes (which eventually end at the lake), beautiful ancient buildings and the elegant atmosphere grace this lovely town.
The train station is a little minute walk( 400mt from Mariashouse ). The passenger and car ferries are also minutes away, reaching the exquisite villages, gardens and villas that dot the lakeshore. From Varenna's central position one can easily get to all other locations on the lake, such as Menaggio and Bellagio, the most elegant and international town of the Lake of Como, located just between the two branches of the lake. The lake of Como itself and the nearby area offer the best in skiing, windsurfing, hiking and bicycling. Maria's House is available 12 months of the year, and rates are seasonal. Please see enclosed rate sheet for further information.
My names is Maria and I have two apartments in Varenna.
"Varenna, a corner of paradise dipped in blue. a pearl between lake and mountains, lulled by the beauty and kissed by the sun.
A place on the borders of time where most modern services meet the old reputation that touches every corner of the world"
