My husband and 9 year old son stayed at Casa Mary for the second time for many reasons. The location is perfect...short walk to the ferry and train station. Views are amazing, from every window! The family that rents is very accommodating and hospitable. My only complaint is we couldn't stay longer! But we will definitely return.

“Great location and facilities”
Reviewed 13 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We only ended up staying here 2 nights instead of 3 after a double booking which was unfortunate as this is a great place to base yourselves for Lake Como. The apartment is on the second floor (stairs only) and is well equipped, clean and spacious with beautiful views over the lake. Secure parking is available onsite which is an absolute bonus in this area. The bedroom is separate from the living area. Free wifi is also provided. Once you have settled in, everything is accessible by foot including the rail station for day excursions to Milan.
Andrea is very pleasant and accommodating.

“Perfect getaway”

This was a great find in a beautiful small town, we had a fantastic stay at Casa Mary. We stayed in the top floor aprtment with a large terrace overlooking the lakeside, we could see the boats coming and going from the stop almost outside the house. The view is amazing, mountains all around, so the evening sunsets were lovely - we ate outside every day. One reasonable size bedroom and a small bathroom with a shower, plus a small kitchen/dining room/lounge, perfect for two people. There was a washing machine which was particulaly useful as we had already been away for 6 days by the time we got to Varenna and stayed 8 days there. The owner is so helpful and friendly, we felt very welcome. It's easy to travel by boat or train to other parts of the lake, the boat stop is a 2 minute walk, the station about 5-6 minutes. There are two small shops in the town selling all the basic essentials (including wine of course) and plenty of restaurants to choose from. Free wi-fi, though rather slow, and everything we needed for a very comfortable stay.

“Great location but can be noisy early morning”
Reviewed 30 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We had a fabulous stay. We were collected from the station and escorted to our apartment which is only a short walk from the station right beside the ferry terminal which services lake Como. It is a short walk into Varenna township. Due to its location however it can be noisy in the early mornings with delivery vehicles. Apartment is clean and has all you'd need. The bed does dip in the middle and probably needs replacing.

“Great apartment with breathtaking view!”
Reviewed 22 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

The apartment is very clean, with new furniture, kitchen and bathroom. Location is fantastic, 800 m from train station and across the road from the ferry wharf. We had memorable stay. We even had the owner took us to the station due to my ankle injury. Highly recommended.

“Wonderful apartment with lake view”

We were picked up at the train station by Andrea's mom, Mary, even though the apt was very close. She was super kind and showed us the apartment. They even gave us a nice welcome gift! The apt was clean, well equipped, had a fantastic view of the lake and very close to the ferry. It was an adequate size for the 3 of us and could accommodate 4, but it might be a tight fit for 4 if you plan to hang out since the foldout sofabeds are in the common space. We did end up hanging out at the apt the first afternoon/evening since soon after we arrived it was pouring rain and super windy. The next day was beautiful, so we had gotten some croissants from the cafe at the train station (really good pastries, don't let the location deter you) and had breakfast back at the apartment with our fantastic view of the lake. Wish we could have stayed longer than 2 nights, it was definitely a nice way to end our vacation in Italy. Would definitely recommend this place if visiting the area.

“Blissful”

As soon as I entered the door of our apartment I was awestruck. The views of the lake and mountains were phenomenal. The apartment was very clean and light and airy with everything we needed. Casa Mary is close to everything. A short walk along beautiful Lake Como and you are in the terraced laneways of Varenna. Mary, the owner was very hospitable and picked us up from the station, even though it is an easy walk to the apartment. It's so easy to catch a ferry to any of the other towns on the lake and if the weather is fine, have a swim at the lido just next door. Staying at casa Mary was bliss. A week was not long enough.
