My husband and I had a great stay at the Orange House. The best attribute is probably the friendliness and hospitality of the owners. Other positive aspects of the B & B include: a varied and filling breakfast each morning, particularly compared to the typical European breakfast; umbrellas available for guests to use; the price is very reasonable compared to other places in Varenna and Lake Como; Piero watched for arrival on the train and greeted us outside the B & B; free wireless internet; proximity to the train station; and a lounge area with a t.v. for guests.
The town of Varenna is a wonderful place to explore Lake Como. It is small, charming, not overly touristy, has a train station and ferry, and nice restaurants. My favorite meal of our trip was eating outside on the patio of Ristorante La Vista. Initially, I was a little concerned about the fact that the Orange House was not located in the center of town. However, it is a very short and beautiful walk into town from the B & B.
It is difficult to come up with any negatives about Orange House. While it didn't affect us, it is important to note for those individuals with mobility issues, that here are a number of stairs leading up to the entrance of the Orange House and one flight of stairs in the apartment. Piero was nice enough, actually insisted on carrying my bag up the stairs. We would definitely recommend the Orange House.
