Location, breakfast, hosts very gracious and the apartment was a delight!
Silvia and Simone made us feel as we were long time friends, from the very moment we arrived they made us feel home. The apartment was very clean and the location could not have being better. Thank you Silvia and Simone we hope to see you again, soon.
Varenna is a relaxed friendly place and beautiful lake views from our room. Felt less touristy and our hosts Silvia & Simone could not do enough to make our stay fantastic
Nothing would go back again
Situated in Varenna - the prettiest of villages - the split-level apartment has a fantastic lakeside location, with a small balcony overlooking the lake and was spacious, comfortable and spotlessly clean. The owners, Simone & Silvia are very friendly and we were greeted with drinks, olives and information about local restaurants, ferry services and places to visit. Breakfast is served at a table by the lake in their restaurant Bar Il Molo, which is next door to the apartment. Everything is fresh - fruit, croissants, eggs (cooked how you like them) and plentiful, tea, coffee and orange juice. A great base from which to explore the lake and surrounding area.
All in all this was our favorite place of our 19-night trip, which included luxury hotels in Paris and London and a Grand Canal view in Venice. I pride myself on finding great places to stay but my wife kept repeating that I outdid myself this time. Not only is the location idyllic, with our balcony overlooking the lake, in Varenna the ideal mid-lake place to stay IMHO, but Simone and his wife Sylvia the proprietors were the reason this place is exceptional. They were so warm and welcoming, treating us like honored guests, that we instantly felt at home there. The apartment was perfect for us- clean, comfortable, plenty of room for 2, great view, excellent AC, and a kitchen with espresso machine. The apartment is upstairs in the building next door to the bar/restaurant they run (Il Bar Molo), which has a prime location on the lake and is a great place to eat and/or drink. The breakfast included omelets, croissants and fresh fruit and was by far the best breakfast we had on our whole trip. It was our anniversary and on the last night Simone and Sylvia invited us to have drinks with them and then they brought out this large paper lantern for us and we lit the candle on the bottom launching it up into the sky over the lake to celebrate our anniversary. It was so touching. Lake Como is beautiful and I look forward to going back. I feel very fortunate that I chose this place to stay. Simone and Sylvia really made our visit so special, and we look forward to seeing them again.
Loved the location, the hosts who were extremely welcoming, thoughtful and excellent at their job and the apartment. When we arrived Simone offered us a refreshing fruit drink and snacks, told us about the area, drew the various options on a map,took us up to the apartment and showed us where everything was. The apartment is well provided for and difficult to fault. Breakfast on the terrace was a wonderful experience with the mixed fruit salad starter a must have. The view as you dine is marvellous and the calming sound of the water lapping against the lakeside truly makes you relax. Highly recommencded.
Very warm owners and the staff were friendly as well. Closeness to everything, and yet managed to be peaceful. Lakeside breakfast was fabulous. The view from the balcony is spectacular.
the location, the owners Sylvia & Simone who are delightful, very helpful and keep the place running very smoothly, took care of all the details. Breakfasts were plentiful and delicious. Very nice view of Lake Como from the balcony
It's a bit difficult for a senior couple since the bedroom is accessible through firefighter type stairs and the bathroom is downstairs. It shouldn't be a problem for a younger couple.
Location - right by the lake. Hospitality - we were welcomed as friends. Friendliness of all the staff. Helpfulness - details of where and what to visit. Very high standard of accommodation, lots of attention to detail. Excellent breakfast Good communication links - we travelled from England by train Varenna is an ideal small village. Places of interest and lakeside walks. A gem of a place. Unsurpassed views from apartment and breakfast table by the lake. Simone and Silvia made our holiday. You can only appreciate all their work to our holiday so special.
Poor WiFi connectivity.
The wonderful reception and help of Simone and Silvia. Excellent breakfast. Lakeside location. Proximity to Lake Como ferry wharf.
The owners were fabulous hosts and made us feel very welcome. We could not fault the apartment or their hospitality as the owners of the bar downstairs. Breakfast was the best in our six weeks of travel & we also had dinner twice at their restaurant. We would highly recommend & would hope to go back one day.
Simoné was an inspiration to watch. Up at 7am & didn't sleep until 1am! The balconey with Lake view was lovely. Ideally located. Breakfasts were great.
Wifi could have been better
Fabulous apartment with balcony overlooking the lake. Friendly owners who did everything to make our stay special. The added bonus of newly built spa facilities was a wonderful treat!
Couldn't get the wifi to work.
A home away from home with all the practical necessities and unexpected thoughtful heart-warming touches. The location is at the prettiest part of the lake and yet easily accessible to the town centre, ferries and trains. The apartment is spacious, clean and warm in winter with a balcony towards the lake and a bedroom with skylights to watch the mountains and the stars. Silvia and Simone were great hosts who gave us tips on what to see and served us great meals in the mornings.
Nothing at all. Only regret not being able to experience the ambience of their Bar Il Molo situated next to the apartment as it was closed for winter. It looks like a great place to have a drink or meal while enjoying the view.
Staff were fabulous and catered for dietary needs . Facilities fantastic location great. Going back for longer stay.
The friendliness of our hosts, Simone and Silvia; the situation of the apartment; the excellent brekfast.
Simone & Silvia are the perfect hosts ! There was a surprise welcome drink with Simone who personally sat down with me at the Bar Il Moro which he owns, next building to the B&B apartment . He spent about 30mins explaining everything in English , all the tips a tourist needs to discover the best of Varenna & Lake Como. He took time to explain in great detail, the brochures with beautiful Villas to visit, the Ferry timetable to Bellagio & other towns across the Lake, and pointed out many other attractions . Simone is a perfect gentleman , wonderful manners, calm & very kind . Never have I had such a warm welcome & reception from any B&B host ! Then he took me to the apartment upstairs in the next building ( separated by only a quaint narrow flight of cobbled stone steps from his Bar ) . Everything looks even better than the photos in the apartment ! Cosy, extremely clean, immaculate, coffee machine included & equipped with a laundry machine and a huge plasma TV . And heated flooring too under the tiled floor , perfect for the colder season ! Up the spiral stairs , the loft bedroom was cosy with a Double bed & another Single bed in an open plan . The view from the sitting room balcony has a good Lake view. A delicious hot breakfast is served every morning in Bar Il Moro with a perfect front seat view of Lake Como ! Freshly cooked eggs by Sergio , their Italian cuoco ( cook ) , any style , omelette, scrambled , sunny side up, bacon & toast, a fresh pastry or fruit tart, coffee, tea or hot chocolate and freshly squeezed orange juice , your every wish is granted by Simone & his gorgeous wife Silvia ! They live in an apartment above their Bar across from the B&B, so you never feel stranded or alone , they can help you 24/7. On the day the Bar was closed , they personally cooked my breakfast in their own kitchen & brought it up to my apartment ! 5 STAR service !
The owners of this B&B were extremely friendly, responsive and helpful. Loft bedroom apt. was clean and well appointed; they provided cooking utensils, plates, washing machine for clothes, etc. (and also an espresso machine so we could make our own lattes. They even provided umbrellas and raincoats! We had a sideways view of the lake from the balcony. Restaurant (Il Moro) was 10 yards away from our front door for complimentary and full breakfast. We would definitely recommend this to other travelers. Varenna is beautiful, restaurant sits right on the lake front, great place for breakfast and other meals, watching the boats sail by on their way to Bellagio. Great experience (and only an hour away from Milan by train). When you leave the train station, walk down the hill and ask at the Travel Agency for directions to Il Moro. 10 minute walk to the restaurant, when we arrived one of the waitresses smiled and said "welcome, we've been expecting you." That was a nice way to start our stay in Varenna at Divina Vita B&B.
We were there in late October so the weather was cloudy and rainy. There were hikes and trips we did not try because of the weather, but that was a chance we took for going there so late in the Fall. Give yourself a clear, sunny day in Varenna and it will be as good or better than any other place in Italy.
The hosts, Simone and Silvia, went out of their way to make us comfortable. The location is superb as were the meals at Il Moro (owned and operated by S & S) right next door on the waterfront. The apartment is cute and highly decorated. We would definitely stay again.
Difficult to find. Best to call Simone on his mobile or at Il Moro for directions. Lots of difficult stairs to negotiate but Simone helped us with our bags. Carpark some distance away but Simone helped here as well.
My friend and I loved this B&B. Simone & Sylvia were the cutest "host & hostess with the mostest" to put it plainly. The apartment was immaculate with wonderful bedding & décor. The balcony with view of the lake was a bonus. The location was quiet & easy to get to the boats & train. Breakfast was made to order outstanding. Make sure to climb up to the Castle...outstanding history , views & another little town to discover on the way up.
Some people may not like the bedroom being up a spiral staircase but we found no problem with it.
Divina Vita is located in Varenna, Italy on the shores of Lake Como. This delightful B&B is run by Simone and his wife Sylvia. They also run a local restaurant. Simone is an energetic, friendly, helpful and engaging young man. The rooms were clean, they had all the basic supplies, E.G. coffee, microwave, tv, hot shower, comfortable bed, etc. The rooms are right next to Simone's restaurant and the food is very good. Breakfast is served on a table right next to the lake. The restaurant staff is superb! Valentina is especially dear. She made sure that we were always well cared for. The hotel and Varenna are right on the lake and the ferry service to all the other Lake Como cities stops just an easy 5 minute walk from the room. Vareena is also a stop on the express train service putting Davina Vita just an hour and fifteen minutes from Milano Centrale.
In order to get to the bedroom, you will have to climb a steep spiral staircase. If you have disabilities or can't negotiate this feature, you might want to select a different room or place to stay.
Absolutely exquisite stay. From the moment we arrived and were welcomed with snacks, drinks and detailed information to the moment we sadly said good-bye, our stay was absolutely outstanding. Simone and Silvia “wrote the book” on hospitality, accommodations, and food. Our balcony overlooked their bar/restaurant and Lake Como. A magenta sunset was matched only by watching the rising sun light up the mountains bit by bit. The pictures of the large apartment give a good idea of the size and tasteful decorations; but do not show the attention to detail and thoughtfulness, such as 2 rain jackets in the large closet, that Silvia and Simone have provided. The furniture and appliances are high quality, new and attractive. While Simone gave us recommendations on places to eat in Varenna, we wound up taking all our meals at Il Molo, their restaurant. Guests at Divina Vita can enjoy a bountiful breakfast at a table reserved for them right beside the lake. Be sure to start with fresh fruit cup! We spent 19 days in Europe visiting four countries. This was, by far, the loveliest, most welcoming accommodation of the trip. A wonderful way to end our vacation and a most memorable way to celebrate our 45th anniversary. Thank you, Simone and Silvia for everything!
We had to leave.
The owners of Divina Vita were helpful and welcoming, and really thought of everything when furnishing the apt. They provided the best breakfasts we had in Italy- fresh fruit with yogurt, scrambled eggs, bacon, toast, and coffee- all at a lakeside table. The balcony overlooked their restaurant, which had great food, and the views of the lake were beautiful. Varenna is a quiet place to stay and easy to ferry to other mid-lake towns.
Silva and Simone were great hosts. Very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The breakfast was excellent. The B & B is in a great spot with lake views from the deck.
