    Overview

    Views onto the lake

    Varenna, called “pearl of the lake”, is a quaint village lying on a promontory on the east coast of Lake Como. It is a quiet lakeshore town of beautiful old houses and romantic panoramas. Olive and cypress trees testify to the mild climate of the area, along with many botanical specimens normally found in warmer climates. A romantic walkway along the lakefront links the town center with Olivedo, the landing point for ferries and steamers. Because ferries connect it to other towns on Lake Como including a car ferry, and the train comes directly from Milan centre to Varenna (train ride little more than one hour), it is an ideal base for exploring northern Italy as well as the southern Swiss Alps. Varenna offers many wonderful possibilities for daytrips. Explore the castle of Vezio (5 minutes walk from the villa). Visit the gardens of Villa Monastero, Bellagio and Menaggio (15 minutes by ferry), Tremezzo and the famous Villa Carlotta, and Como, with its historic monuments, churches, and shopping.

    Varenna, with its brightly painted houses and flowers along the lake edge, is just ten minutes away by car. Visitors remark on the quiet and tranquility of Varenna, the relaxation afforded by the unhurried pace of this peaceful village. Take in the lovely walk along the lake edge down to the small stone beach which is inhabited by ducks, and enjoy some ice cream or coffee from the gelaterie nearby, or sit at an outside terrace of a cafe on the water’s edge to enjoy a meal and the beautiful scenery: the calm lake, the towns of Bellagio and Menaggio across, and the snowcapped mountains in the distance. Along the arcade near the water are a few shops, boutiques, and cafes. The sporting club in Varenna (3 km) has a pool and beach facilities.

    Located on a hill above Varenna, Casa Selvina is a simple, recently restored accommodation. The house, set on a road that ends just five metres beyond, has a terrace equipped with a table and chairs overlooking the small access road. A WIFI Internet connection is available in the reception office (80 m from the house).

    Above Casa Selvina, with a separate entrance, is Casa Rossore (also featured in our portfolio), another rental accommodation for 8+2 people with its own terrace and a lovely garden with pool. If Casa Selvina is rented with Casa Rossore, guests use the swimming pool of Casa Rossore. Rented together the two accommodations can accommodate up to 14 people, they can be connected by the twin bedroom upstairs. If Casa Selvina is rented individually, guests have access to a new pool shared with other houses.

    On the same property, a large 60-acre estate, there are other four rentals also featured in our portfolio. If renting the entire property (Casa Rossore with a private pool, Villa Belcanto with a private pool, and the four houses Casa Selvina, Casa Vanni, Casa Donata and Casa Rosina sharing a pool) approx. up to 43 people can be accommodated on this estate.

    Additional information: Casa Selvina is the lowest floor of the four floor house (the three upper floors belong to Casa Rossore). There are about 20 steps to access the house from the parking level, so this property is not suitable for anyone with a walking problem. Guests have access to the tennis court. There is a charming, small restaurant located within walking distance (approx. 100 m) of the property, while other restaurants, shops, ferry and railroad station are located in Varenna.
