Hotel in Varenna
Varenna is one of the most beautiful places I have visited in Italy and, honestly, the whole world! We picked a gorgeous hotel in Varenna called Villa Monti.
I cannot recommend Villa Monti Hotel in Varenna enough! Opened only three years ago, it offers stunning views of Varenna with such excellent and helpful hospitality.
I booked directly through Villa Monti and received brilliant communication from Diego when putting down a deposit and then paying the rest before the stay with him sending me invoices. He provided a welcome booklet prior to our arrival and helped with the best way to arrive at the Villa from the airport.
When we arrived we were checked in by Cristian, who is your main contact during your stay – he showed us places to visit on the map, gave us his business card for any questions and selected a number of restaurants that we may wish to visit. He was our rock when we were there – he would answer all sorts of questions via phone or whats app (including where I could watch English football!) and reserved a number of restaurants for us. He definitely made our stay extra special!
The Tulip Apartment
The Villa itself is located on a hill overlooking the lake, just over a mile from the station, 5 minutes from the main square and 20 minutes from the ferry port. We loved the location for the amazing views from our outside terrace and the pool area – you just couldn’t get bored of them. We had the tulip apartment which is a studio apartment with kitchen facilities, a pull out sofa bed and a modern bathroom. The terrace was the best bit with a table and chairs and sun loungers and such beautiful! Although it was a studio, there was still plenty of space for our suitcases and belongings.
The Pool Area
The pool area has a number of sun loungers and tables of chairs and for the majority of our stay it was just us there, which made it feel like our own private pool! Again, I cannot explain how amazing the views were.
There are a couple of local supermarkets near the square where we purchased some juice and fruit for breakfast. There were also some drinks in the room that you could purchase at reasonable prices.
I would absolutely recommend Villa Monti to anyone looking for a hotel in Varenna. At around €150 a night it is well worth the value for the stunning views and amazing staff.
