The location of this rental was great. The balcony was beautiful as was the view. We appreciated the wine and bread !

The rest of the stay ruined the experience for us. This is what the company calls a self catered apartment : what this means is that they provide no amenities for the traveler. They do not provide soap ( we travelled throughout Italy in apartments and were always given soap), they provide only one roll of toilet paper. We stayed for 4 nights with a family of three. We also only were given two pillows for a family of three!! This made for a very uncomfortable night of sleep.

When we called the company they said they would provide soap and never did.. ..they were not helpful or concerned.

I personally don't appreciate having to buy supplies such as soap and toilet paper on the first day of a vacation. I wish we had stayed somewhere else that cared about their customers.

I would NOT recommend this apartment or this company. Keep looking.

Varenna is simply beautiful, the old town seems to be almost split into several areas, the old town, the area near the ferry and the upper town.

This accommodation is near the ferry and a short walk along the Passarella to the old town where you will find the majority of restaurants and shops and a very steep walk to the upper areas. We were concerned about the location after a few other disasters on our trip BUT there was no need to worry.

It was really a relaxing, quiet place to stay. We enjoyed the activity of the ferries (my favourite, the Milano is such a beautiful boat!) and they were not loud nor bothered us.
We slept wonderfully every night of our week there with windows open most nights and a beautiful cross breeze. The real downside was not booking a month!

Sitting at our lakeside window / french balcony after a day out with a glass of wine and snacks watching the sun set or a storm brewing was amazingly beautiful and peaceful.

The Imbarcadero is spacious overall, clean and presentable but it is a little dated and there are a few issues that the owners need to be address, but if I was heading back tomorrow they would not be deal breakers!
Imbarcadero allowed us to relax with room to move, a well equipped kitchen for some much needed home cooking and a central location to the Lidos and the other beautiful towns on the lake.

Varenna does seem to lack a quality regular fresh food market that the other lake towns have but a quick ferry ride in the morning and we had it organised.
