Rossa Varenna is a beautifully perched and comfortable house with a private garden and lovely views of Lake Como.  The front of the house looks toward the garden and the lake, while the back part of the house is at the end of a local road, which stops five meters after the house.  Below Rossa Varenna, with separate entrance is Piccola Varenna, a small accommodation for four people with its own terrace and no access to the garden.

Check availability

A new swimming pool was completed recently.  The pool is private to Rossa Varenna and can be used by the guests of Piccola Varenna only when both accommodations are rented together.

At the garden level, the hall is accessed by a large patio shaded by an old wisteria.  The living room, with large windows opening to the garden has a fireplace, two comfortable sofas and satellite TV.  The studio with a library opens directly to the living room.  On the same floor Rossa Varenna offers a lake view dining room with a table for eight people and a separate kitchen with refrigerator and stove (four burners) and washing machine. On this level there is also a half bathroom.

There is WiFi Internet provided, which is included in the price.  Telephone is metered and charged according to usage.

A nice loggia welcomes the guests on the first floor and gives access to the terrace-solarium with view of the lake.  On this floor there are also three bedrooms: two double bedrooms and one twin-bedded bedroom. The twin bedroom provides access to one of the double bedrooms.  On this same floor there are two bathrooms, one with shower and the other with tub and separate shower and washing machine.

Upstairs there is another twin-bedded room with lake view.  Each of these beds has an additional pull out bed which are available for an extra fee of 210 Euros each per week.

Rossa Varenna has been recently restored and tastefully furnished with great care. The private outdoor area is shaded by old cypress and olive trees, while the patio is equipped with a table and chairs. All of the bedrooms are located upstairs, and there are about 20 steps between the parking level and the villa. Therefore, we do not recommend this villa for guests with walking difficulties.

A baby bed is available.

Rossa Varenna can be connected to Piccola Varenna through one of the double bedrooms and the two rentals together can accommodate up to 14 people. This property can also be rented in combination with Piccola Varenna, Giovanni Varenna and other nearby properties for larger groups.

Varenna is a beautiful lakeshore town on Lake Como. Built on a rocky promontory it was a sentinel for centuries at the heart of the lake. Varenna today is a quietly refined town with charming old houses and romantic panoramas. The climate is particularly mild, as witnessed by the presence of olive and cypress trees, as well as other botanical specimens normally found in much warmer climates. Along the lakefront is a romantic walkway, abounding in flush vegetation, linking the town center and Olivedo, the landing point for ferries and steamers. Varenna is the ideal starting point for a visit to the north and central regions of Italy and the southern Swiss Alps. It is less than two hours from Milano Malpensa airport and one hour from the Milano Linate airport. Places to visit: The Castle of Vezio (only a five minute walk from the villa). The gardens of Villa Monastera, a neo-classical garden offering a long walk along the lakeshore. Bellagio and Menaggio are 15 minutes away by ferry. Como with its ancient monuments, excellent shops and churches are near the villa, as are Tremezzo and the famous Villa Carlotta.

Two hours of maid service each Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday are included.  Pool towels are included.  Linens are changed on Saturday.  Telephone use is metered.  Tennis courts can be reserved for 15 Euros per hour in the daytime and 20 Euros per hour in the evening.  Services available only upon request and charged separately include cook services, cooking lesson, advance grocery shopping, baby sitting, extra maid services and restaurant reservations.  Extra bath towels and linens are available for an additional fee, cost provided upon arrival.  Breakfast upon request for an extra fee.

Pets are permitted at Rossa Varenna (small size only) upon approval of the owner, only if rented in combination with Piccola Varenna.  Pets must be on leash in the garden area.
