Casa Piana can accommodate 2 to 4 guests with its two bedrooms and one full bathroom. Casa Piana has recently been restored and is part of an estate with two other other houses. Casa Piana is located in the town of Varenna which is a lovely Lake Como town. Built on a rocky promontory, it was for centuries a sentinel at the heart of the lake. Varenna today is a quietly refined town with beautiful old houses and romantic panoramas. The climate is particularly mild, as witnessed by the presence of olive and cypress trees together with other botanical specimens normally found in much warmer climates. Along the lakefront is a romantic walkway, abounding in flora, and linking the town center to Olivedo, the landing point for ferries and steamers. Varenna is the ideal starting point for a visit to the northern/central part of Italy and the southern Swiss Alps. It is less then two hours from the Milano Malpensa airport and 1 hour from the Milano Linate airport. Places to visit: The castle of Vezio (5 minutes walking from the villa); the gardens of villa Monastero, a neo-classical garden offering a long walk along the lakeshore; Bellagio and Menaggio are 15 minutes by ferry; Tremezzo and the famous Villa Carlotta; Como with its ancient monuments and churches, and its shopping area. Varenna is 10 minutes driving (all shops, restaurants, ferry and railroad station) with connections to Menaggio and Bellagio via ferry. The railroad station in Varenna connects you to Milano by train in one hour. There is a golf course in Menaggio (15 minutes by ferry plus 10 by car).
Casa Piana is a 80 sqm accommodation for four. On the ground floor is a quaint living room with sofa and armchair. The living room opens up onto a terrace with table and chairs. The kitchen/dining room has a fridge, stove and washing machine. The master bedroom is located on this floor and has an ensuite bathroom with tub. From the bathroom there are stairs leading to the second bedroom which has two twin beds. These can be made into a queen upon request.
There is a pool shared with two other units on the Estate.
For groups of up to 27 this property may be rented with Casa Paseo and Villa Como which are also located on the same estate. Please see Casa Agiato Vita for more details.
