We would love to repeat our stay in the future. It started our vacation off in the best, italian way.
We loved the common rooms to relax in on rainy days and the terrace to enjoy a bottle of wine in the late afternoons. The ferry is right out the door, but provides interest in watching people come and go, but doesn't create any noise issues.
The view of lake como was wonderful. Also located right at boat ferry which made travels to other cities easy. Train station was nearby. Short walk to main center of town
Everything was great.
The room I had was one of about 5 on the top floor and it had an amazing view of the lake. The room was very cozy and comfortable room. The staff was amazing, especially the owner, who went out of her way to be very kind and accommodating. Its located next to the ferry which is convenient for getting to the other parts of the lake. It's a nice relaxing place that I would like to go back to.
The setting is beyond compare in a town that I believe is the nicest on Lake Como. The Villa is a former single family home of some repute and thus the rooms are wonderful.
I reserve a two night stay, but had to change rooms for reasons that were never clearly explained. The house keeping staff came into our room at 10 without knocking to move us catching us at a time when no one would want to be interrupted.
The room was clean and the bathroom was new with good plumbing! Good views. Varenna was a great base for our 5 days.
Very noisy, with ferries coming and going all day from 6am onwards, and trash collection at 6am too. Pillows were like rocks - old, towels thin and rough.
Views of the lake from our room were outstanding. Very charming room. Easy walk to many good restaurants and shops. Easy to get to from the train station. Easy access to the ferry for travel to Bellagio and Menaggio.
Nothing major. The staff was a bit inflexible. Wouldn't allow early check-ins or late check-outs regardless of whether the room was ready upon our arrival or vacant upon our departure. The 'niece' who showed us to our room could not have been less interested or less helpful.
The location of Villa Torretta was perfect. Close to the water transport and just up the hill the train station. We would watch the sun go down from the beautiful garden setting which was set up from the road level. The rooms were comfortable and the old house was charming. The breakfast was great at the Hotel next door. The town was a lot smaller than some of the other areas on Como. There was a choice of good restaurants and very quaint back streets.
The only thing that was a problem was finding our room. We were handed a lump of keys and given brief instructions on how to find our room in the old guest house. The area is a little noisy at night. There was a childrens playground near the wharf and some fairly old children taking advantage of hanging out near the swings till all hours of the night, this went on for the 4 nights we were there. I suggest earplugs for sleeping if you are like me and sleep with the windows open and the air con off.
The view and friendly staff
Location really good and room well appointed
Staff attitude generally wasn't one of helpfulness and they didn't go out of the way to make it good for us.
This is a period villa with wonderful views of the lake. Apart from period furniture in large rooms, the en-suite bathroom facilities are entirely modern. For its type this is an excellent hotel and the food in the juxtaposed hotel was delicious and good value for money.
If you prefer a large TV and a fully stocked bar fridge rather than the view of the lake don't go here, I suggest a 5* hotel in Milan (or Manchester), after all you can always use Google Maps for your Italian lakes experience
It was a lovely spacious room and very comfortable.
We asked if we could have an early breakfast (which was in the room rate) as we had an early train and we were told no.
We loved Villa Toretta, we could only stay one night because we were on a 3 week trip but we will definatly be back for a week next time. Hotel and view of the lake were both beautiful and Laura is a one in a million hostess who took very good care of all her guests.
Atmosphere, comfort, old style Reception very helpful and greeting very good
The villa was in the perfect location with a beautiful view from the spacious room or from the nice communal balcony. The staff were lovely. It was a short walk from the station, ferry and restaurants. Perfect.
Wonderful location with great ambience Laura and her staff were very helpful and welcoming Very good breakfast
Great location, reasonably priced, view of Lake Como from the room. Comfortable bed. Breakfast is typical with bread, meat, yoghurt, cheese.
Wonderful B&B! Owner is very helpful and we loved the food at the adjoining hotel. Can't wait to go back!!!
Villa Torretta was amazing! I have traveled through Europe every summer for work (archaeology) for the past four years and our experience here was by far the best. The staff is over the top helpful. We had an overnight trip planned to Bellagio the day after our reservation and since I travel for a total of two months I had a very heavy suitcase. The woman working the front desk (I forgot her name!) let us leave our larger bags at the hotel overnight so we could take one small backpack with us- no issue whatsoever! The room was more than we could have imagined. It was very large and opened up to a spectacular view of the lake. The building itself is set up as an actual villa with plenty of outdoor seating and a full indoor sitting room. There are not many rooms so the experience is very intimate. I cannot stress how top notch our experience was. I was very sad that we booked only one night here. We will definitely return!
Location, charm, comfort, great view, very good breakfast, helpful staff.
Near the water, beautiful view, nice walking path along the water to town. Just a few steps to the boats to take us to other towns. Laura was very accommodating for my husband to find a room where he didn't have to climb a lot of steps.
Garabage truck at 6 am. Trafic to the boats can get noisy, but to be expected. Animal heads in the living room of the Villa. Those could be put away somewhere.
Staff was excellent
