Piero and Mara give you a warm welcome to their B&B in Varenna, a small town on Lake Como. Easily accessible by train, the bed and breakfast is a short walk from the train station. Check in is between 1.30 and 3.30 pm but earlier or later arrivals can be accommodated by advising Piero and Mara prior to arrival. You...

Piero was a warm and friendly host. His apartment is well located near the train station and is quite cool in summer (with the ceiling fan) even though it had no air conditioning. We had a difficult time locating the apartment though, so it may be helpful to note that his apartment is the block at the corner of the...

My boyfriend and I stayed at the orange house for 2 nights. It was perfect. Right next to the train station. Piero was very nice and gave good recommendation s. his wife speaks little English but we are in Italy. My boyfriend tried to say have a nice evening in Italian to her in which she said "I don't speak...

I am so glad we (my daughter 23 and myself 51) chose Varenna and Orange House for our trip. The B&B is very close to the train station (less than 5 min.) and an easy walk to the ferry (5 min.) as well. Just know-everything is up hill! We had heavy luggage to tote and there are steps up to...

We loved our stay in Varenna - it is a magical spot and this is just the place to rest after a day exploring and eating. Piero was just such a gentleman, gave great recommendations and his wife was so lovely bringing in breakfast each morning. We weren't great fans of Italian breakfasts throughout Italy but we certainly found enough...

Great place to stay! Mara and Piero give the Orange House personal touches that make a stay there delightful. We are in our late 70's and appreciated that the Orange House was an easy walk from the train station and a short walk to where the boats dock. We hope we are fortunate enough to visit there again. It is...

My wife and I stayed 2 nights in late Sept. 2012, and thorougly enjoyed the hotel and our hosts, Piero and Mari. We were on the upper floor adjacent to the common room (for breakfast and sitting about - not that there is any time for that!) Our room was mid sized, clean, very quiet and convenient. Mari's breakfasts were...

Wonderful hosts in a comfortable setting made Orange House B and B a great place to stay in September. Piero and Mari were gracious, helpful, and knowledgeable about the area. Mari's breakfast were prepared with care, tasted great, and were a complete bargain. We would highly recommend this for a place to stay on Lake Como.

Great B&B in Varenna, very cheap in comparison with other hotels in the area. Train station and ferry port is walking distance (5min) and so is the centre of town. Our room had separate bathroom, which wasn't a problem (we were the only ones using it). Breakfast was extra 7€ for the two of us and it was fantastic. Prosciutto,...

It's probably very hard to find this good of a deal. Piero and Mara are very very welcoming. The breakfasts are filling and the location is very convenient. Yes, it can be a bit noisy at night because it is near the road and some of these Italians have LOUD mufflers. Harley Davidson loud. Besides that we love the place....
