Varenna, Lake Como, Lombardy
Casa Mara, a spacious, cozy and romantic holiday house, is at the first floor of a historical building in the center of the beautiful Varenna. The house is located in the most famous area of Varenna.

About the neighbourhood
Varenna is a municipality on Lake Como in the Province of Lecco in the Italian region Lombardy, located about 60 km north of Milan and about 20 km northwest of Lecco.
The municipality of Varenna contains the subdivision Fiumelatte, home to Italy’s shortest river.

Varenna is also known as “The pearl of the Como Lake“, because of its amazing lake-view, its beautiful landscapes, and the coexistence of both lake and mountain.

You can visit Vezio Castle (a big ancient and misterious castle on the top of the mount behind Varenna), Fiumelatte (the shortest european river), Villa Monastero, and much more. You can reach Bellagio, Lecco, Como, Menaggio and each other city on the lake by the use of ferry boat.
