“Great location for a comfortable apartment”

Casa Mara is a very clean, airy, comfortable and sufficiently roomy apartment for two couples. The kitchen is furnished with enough pots, pans, and dishes to be able to stay a month. The local food shoppes have plenty of cold meats, cheeses, fresh breads and produce, so it is not necessary to locate a supermarket. The local cafe offered cappuchino and fresh croissants every morning but Sunday. Other breads were delivered every morning to the local shops from Fiumelatte, about 2 kilometers away. Having access to a wash machine is definitely an advantage, and we hung our laundry on the outdoor terrace. There are plenty of restaurants, and those we had lunch or dinner did not disappoint. The local pizza shop had very good pizza to take out. It was quite simple to access the ferry boats and we did visit several of the towns on Lake Como for sightseeing and shopping.

Liked best: The ability to
Liked least: No ceiling fans. The Lake Como area has also experienced an above normal heat wave. Also we were upstairs, which we (age 70, 73 and 75) were able to manage, but would be difficult for some.

“What a great place to rent for a week on Lake Como”
Reviewed 3 June 2012 for a stay in April 2012

I love the smallish town of Varenna and this place we rented there was ideal. Very, very clean with large rooms, beautiful white, new Italian linens, new bath, new kitchen, small patio on the side which overlooked the lake and we could hear the water splashing on the shore as the ferry boats went by.
The owners are great; dealt mostly with the 20 year old son who met us at the train station and showed us the way to the apartment. His English, like his Dad's, is near perfect which was a big help also as we knew no Italian. Liked being just up the path from the waterfront as we were.
I would love to go back again, maybe next year!
