About the Manager
Guestbook comments from the manager
We really enjoyed our stay in Varenna - the apartment was clean and tidy and in a great location with fantastic views. A car is advised.
The kitchen was a good size. We were disappointed not to have found washing up liquid on arrival. This could have made our stay that bit easier if these domestic supplies were there.
Thank you Happy Holiday Homes.

Varenna's ferry terminal and train station is only a 15 min walk down (and a little more back up) using the historic paths, that cut across the road.
Varenna may be the most picturesque town on the lake, with its steep winding alleys lined with historical Italianate architecture, flowering baskets, and enchanting atmosphere.
Two famed villas to visit here are Villa Cipressi, with terraced gardens cascading right down to the shores, and Villa Monastero, a true showcase.
A distinctive feature of Varenna is it's mild climate; olive & cypress trees abound as well as many other variety's of lush, tropical plants, typical if the lake. Varenna enjoys abundant sunshine & warmth right into the evening.

This beautiful lake region of Italy is not the best for skiing as you may imagine, despite its scenery, crisp air and near perfect visibilty and mountains capped in winter snow. It does however have Skiing opportunities at local resorts for a day out.
There is a small ski area on Mt. Lema, not more than 10 km from Lugano, but you have to be lucky to have enough snow for skiing. In Ticino, the local Swiss Canton, the best places to ski are probably either San Bernardino (south of the pass of the same name) or Airolo (south of Gotthard pass). Both are reachable in about 1 hour by car across the Swiss border.
There are direct trains to Airolo as well from Lugano and hence from Italian Stations. To S. Bernardino there is only a bus connection. For more snow try Andermatt (on the north side of Gotthard pass) which has normally good snow conditions and a good choice of runs.
The closest major ski resorts are St. Moritz and Madesimo toward the Splugen Pass which is approx.100km.
