Lovely hotel with great location

We got a very kind welcome, thorough introduction and then directions to the room on the mountain.
First a floor by stairs, then a long funicular, and then change to a shorter funicular which stopped by the house on the mountain. On additional floor up by stairs, and our room "Bellagio" were there. To go out on the balcony here, were like being between the sky and the sea. The lake far far below and the sky above. We have never seen a more beautiful view. Absolutely breathtaking.
From now on the balcony door were only closed, when we weren't home. From the double bed we lay and looked over the town Bellagio and further on to the opposite lake bank. Fantastic, when the light were on all around the lake in the evening. Furthermore at this altitude, it was windless. Always a gentle and cooling breeze.
The hotel is located in the outskirts of the town, and the standard is fine. Kind staff, nice and clean, and peaceful location. If I were to find something which wasn't that good, it would be the breakfast. It was really dull.

Lake Como as a holiday destination

Varenna is a small, charming town with lots of environment, and a nice and easy life.
There is a small square, which is rather nice, and then there is the path along the coast extending from Villa Monastero and to the other side of the town by the ferry berths. Along the way there is restaurants and bars, and this is where the relatively few tourists gather.
The tourist flow is not overwhelming. Actually you don't even notice the tourists of the town other places than right here in the bay by the bars, the cafes and the restaurants. There is peace and quiet in the town, and you can easily walk home through the town without meeting many people.
Furthermore the price level is relatively low in comparison to other towns by the lakes. For example a 0,5 Weissbier costs 9,- Euro in Bellagio. In Varenna at the lake promenade it costs 5,-, and lots of snacks are served as well.
The price level at the towns lovely restaurant is relatively low as well.
From Varenna you can sail to most of the other coastal towns.
We have in previous travel reviews announced the neighbouring town of Bellagio as one of the greatest located towns in the boot country. It is surpassed, however, by several lengths, by Varenna. Here there is a view of all three "lake-arms".
There is lots of opportunities for hikes in the mountains within a short distance.
We tried a lot of places to eat, cafes and bars, and everywhere we were met with kind courtesy and quality.
Lunch/dinner: Osteria Quattro Pass, Al Prato, Varenna Mon Amour, Il Cavatappi.
Drinks: Varenna Caffé.
Coffee: Al Barilott (on the edge of the square)
All of them are worth 5 stars.
Varenna is an absolute hit by Lake Como.
