  • Beautiful villa with attached a beautiful garden. The view is great and spectacular. The staff were nice. You can visit the interior with very well-preserved rooms. TCI and FAI facilities. Public parking, for a fee, right in front. Advice in the good season but also in November is not bad,rain aside. Inquire for opening hours. Discounts for children. Ingenious services and bars available.

  • The place with its flowering garden enhanced with spectacular views of Lake Como makes people feel really happy. In my opinion it is must see on the Como cruise. You just have to take a stop in Varenna and take a short walk. It's really worth visiting for its beauty.
  • Place is amazing, so beautiful and the views from the villa is outstanding got some pics to show on the sunny day when we went. Loved every minute.
