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 only 10 min by car from this property. 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 Vanni is a cozy house set on a 60-acre estate that includes Casa Rossore with a private pool, Villa Belcanto with a private pool and the three houses Casa Selvina, Casa Donata and Casa Rosina sharing a pool with Casa Vanni.

Casa Vanni offers a peaceful, private location. The architecture is simple, and Casa Vanni’s interior is tastefully furnished, with a stylish, modern feeling. From the garden it has pleasant views onto the lawns in direction of the pool and of the historical castle belonging to the property in the background, but does not have lake views. A WIFI Internet connection is available in the reception office (80 m from the house).

Guests have access to the tennis court. The housekeeper and her family live on the property, as well as the father of the owner, who lives in a wing of Villa Belcanto. 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.
