I inherited this beautiful home and it's been in my family a century. Overlooking the mountains and lake, the peaceful property has two large private gardens, an outdoor eating area under a vine covered terrace, and is very close to Varenna, one of the most beautiful villages on the Lake.
This home is beautiful and peaceful. It is located on the "sentiero del Viandante" which is an ancient Roman mule trail along the eastern coast of the lake. It is now very popular among hikers as it connects the villages.
Minutes from the popular tourist town of Varenna, this home is a hidden treasure. We have two private gardens that overlook the lake, the Alps, and there is always sun.
Opening the front door to a large foyer, you will find the master bedroom on the right. The bedroom has a comfortable queen sized bed and ample closet space. It has a large, bright window so you can wake up to the sun, or you can close the shutters to sleep in!
Off the foyer to the left is the living room. The decor is tasteful and simple, bright and airy, giving the whole home a welcoming feel. In the family room, there are two sofas that serve as single beds. The home sleeps 4 people.
Just off the family room is a large, eat-in, Italian kitchen. As with the other rooms, large windows boast sunny lake views. The kitchen is stocked with all the essentials for wining and dining. I want you to make yourself at home.
The full bathroom is down the hallway between the living spaces. It has a washing machine and there is a drying wrack. There is also ample storage in the home, including an old cave behind the kitchen if you want to store any wine!
It is a bit hard to describe, but the home is attached to another property on the right hand-side. The owners are a friendly, elderly, Italian couple with flowers. The do not live here full-time. When they are home, I have a gate to separate the property.
My home is on the hiking trails that directly connect us with Varenna and other villages. I recommend having a car simply for ease of getting around. It is fairly secluded else wise.
It is only a 7-minutes drive from the popular lake front village, Varenna which is filled with wonderful restaurants. There is free parking at the property, and I can show you where to park in Varenna if you want to drive down! In Varenna, you have the train and ferry stations from which you can easily explore the best of Lake Como.
The home is technically located in the town of Perledo which has a grocery store, restaurant and bar!
I have lived my whole life in Varenna and Perledo. I am happy to show you the area, and recommend places to eat and things to do. I will meet you for check-in and whenever you'd like during your stay. I always like to have a apertivo or coffee together!
This is the second season the home has been listed on airbnb. Last year I hosted 12 guests.

I have an internet hot-spot for the home. There are data restrictions, but it seems to work OK for light emailing and web-surfing.
The perfect day for a guest in this home would include waking up to a sun filled room, having breakfast outside under the vines while overlooking the lake. Later, hike to a nearby village for a locally prepared lunch. Take an afternoon nap in the garden, then venture down to Varenna to dine in one of the best Italian restaurants.
Perhaps the next day you can hike down to Varenna and catch one of the ferries to another town on the lake, stop by a local market on your way back up, and prepare an apertivo and dinner in casa!
Pet's and families welcome!
My name is Maurizio, but Chicco to my friends! I am 44 years old and I live in Varenna (born & raised) with my dog, Leon. I love to cook Italian food - especially risotto. I like watching action movies, soccer, and tennis. I enjoy pop music and any music that creates emotion. I am new to airbnb and I am listing a home that I recently inherited from my grandmother. I have not yet used Airbnb to travel outside of Italy.
