What to do while in Varenna

The sun shines warmly on Varenna making outdoor activities a pleasure. There are lovely little beaches where you can enjoy sunbathing and or maybe a relaxing drink in a shorefront café. One of the benefits of Varenna holiday rentals is great food and wine, but the pace of life in Varenna is lazy and some of the restaurants even retain the old custom of closing over the lunch period.

Bellissimo!

5 of 5
What is there not to like about Molly & Giovanni’s Casa Rosabella accommodation? My husband and I spent a week there in July/August of this year and we thought we were in heaven! After a very warm welcome from Molly & Giovanni we were shown the accommodation which is in the most idyllic location in the quiet medieval hillside village of Albogasio Superiore. Out of the lounge, dining and bedroom windows of Casa Rosabella are the most amazing, picture postcard perfect views of Lake Lugano and its surrounding mountains. The house itself was better than spotless and very well maintained with the loveliest décor and little touches that made us feel right at home. Everything had been thought of. The property also included a garden area which is most unusual in hillside villages and it was just lovely sitting having a glass of wine, chilling out and taking in the amazing view after a hectic day of sightseeing,. The locals also were very friendly toward us and the village store owner even tried to teach my husband Italian in the short space of time that we were there! Excellent customer service was provided by Molly before and during our stay answering my many questions. Believe me, I had quite a few! One time, Molly and I had a discussion about the best gelato in the world. She pointed me in the direction of her favourite gelataria and Molly you were right……It was amazing! Molly and Giovanni, we cannot speak highly enough of you both and your property and we give you 6 out of 5 stars and thank you both for sharing your part of the world with us. Bellissimo!
