PERFECT apartment. Had everything we needed PLUS an outstanding patio with just a heavenly view of the lake. We enjoyed ourselves tremendously. Great communication and check in.

“Great view and friendly owner”
Reviewed 19 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

The view was fantastic! The apartment was clean and the owner, Luigi was very friendly. He met us at the train station and took us to the apartment and explained everything. Georgio (another contact) in the shop under the apartment was also very kind. WIFI worked great! Tip - If you are a light sleeper and plan to keep the windows open, bring some earplugs as people tend to visit at the lake front below the apartment and can be a little loud until late (midnight).

Casa Riva was a perfect place to stay. Ideal location, great view and balcony where we spent many hours watching the people and the boats. Luigi couldn't have been more helpful and accommodating. Highly recommended!

“Best location in Varenna”

Spectacular morning coffees and sunset wines with spectacular view of lake, mountains and surrounding towns on the balcony. Located right on lakes and in the center of charming Varenna. A short walk to ferry, to train and even shorter stroll to wonderful restaurants and activities. Apartment has everything you need for a most pleasant stay. And hosted by Luigi offering great suggestions and assistance. A winner!

“Amazing views in a great town!”
Reviewed 6 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Varenna is a beautiful Lake Como town, not the hustle and bustle of the bigger towns, but full of great restaurants and activities.

The accomodation was superb, best views of the lake and town activity.

Loved Varenna

Georgia greeted us at the train station and was a wonderful host during our stay in Varenna. The one bedroom apartment was lovely, and the view was unsurpassed. We were right in the small town, able to walk to get a few groceries, stroll through the scenic town, hike to the old castle and most importantly, RELAX! We would definitely consider returning to beautiful Lake Como, Varenna and Casa Riva! Many thanks Georgio!!
