Hotel Du Lac in Varenna was a delight for us. We decided to stay at this hotel this August having visited it the previous year while staying elsewhere in Lake Como. Hotel Du Lac is a small and friendly hotel with very modern rooms which are scrupulously clean. We had a lake view room (a truly spectacular view) and were pleasantly surprised at the size, we were told the balcony was small but it had room for two chairs and a small table ideal for a drink whilst we watched the sun set. The breakfasts are help yourself and there is always enough food to set you up for the day, the coffee is second to none. A light lunch is also offered followed by cocktails in the late afternoon and early evening but no evening meals. We asked why and were told that since these would have to be served in the same area as the breakfasts which is immediately below guests’ windows and balconies it might cause a disturbance. On reflection this is a wise decision because the peace and quiet is priceless when looking over the lake in the evening. Seriously, the fact they do not serve evening meals does not matter when staying in Varenna there so are many good restaurants to choose from all within a short walking distance.
This hotel was and is brilliant and importantly it is very good value for money. We got really excited and reserved two rooms for next year, yes it is that good!
