Highlights

Small and unpretentious, this gem of a hotel is in a prime position on the shores of Lake Como.

The lack of big hotels and its position mid-lake make Varenna one of the best base for lake Como, in addition there is also a rail station with direct trains to Milan.

The small size of the hotel allows for personal attention and lots of local recommendations.

16 rooms (4 with front lake view) and 3 self catering apartments

Overview

The Albergo Milano is housed in a traditional early 20th century lakeside building in the heart of Varenna and with picture-postcard views of Lake Como. Painted in warm shades of ochre, mustard and sienna red, and set amidst a sea of terracotta-tiled roofs, the hotel is an excellent choice for anyone seeking authenticity and a fairly informal atmosphere.

Rooms

Original features blend with contemporary style and facilities in the rooms. The main hotel bedrooms are located on two floors and feature terraces or balconies, while additional rooms are available in the Casa Rossa, a sister building just 50m from the hotel. There is also the option of staying in an apartment, the perfect option for families or groups of friends.

Dining

The restaurant La Vista has glorious views of the lake through the large windows and from the terrace, where dinner is served during the summer. The restaurant offers an à la carte menu with regional and national dishes in addition to vegetarian options. A terrace bar is open throughout the day and evening.

 

There are plenty of restaurants close by if you prefer to dine out.

Map

Smaller than its grander neighbour of Bellagio, the village of Varenna has a slightly more authentic feel than other Como resorts and has a pretty waterfront and a tiny stone beach.

In practical terms, it is very conveniently located on the lake, with direct trains to Milan, and is connected to other towns and villages on the lake by regular car and passenger ferries.

This is the third occasion that Antonio has organised an Italian holiday for me. As it was a Birthday celebration involving a party of 10, the arrangements were complex, involving a villa, guides and attendance at the Palio on July 2nd. Without exception everything went exactly as planned. The recommended villa on the Montestigliano Estate, south west of Siena, was wonderful. Our guide made sure we had a full understanding of the history and culture of the Palio which meant that, with a spectacular view over the Campo from the apartment booked by Antonio, we were able to appreciate the event that much more. We shall certainly be going back to Italy with Expertoitaly.read more

Antonio with his meticulous planning and caring service has been solely responsible for the best Italian holidays we have had. His ability to offer excellent hotel accommodation which provides for every need and requirement is second to none . Hotels that are not main stream , that provide high quality of service in excellent locations are one of Antonio’s strength. It’s great to have a provider that know and understands his market.

July 2018 _________________________________ Have just completed another 10 day holiday arranged by Antonio at Expert to Italy. We went with Antonio's suggestion and spent 2 days at Matera and then the remainder in Pisciotta in the Cilento. Matera was amazing and felt completely different to anywhere else we have been in Italy. We loved Pisciotta and the hotel was wonderful with lovely owners who were great at suggesting things to do. We visited a buffalo farm, a vinyard and tooks boats to isolated coves with lovely clear water. All arrangements were absolutely faultless. We would never have found such lovely places without Antonio! 2016 _________________________________ We have just returned from a fantastic holiday suggested no arranged by ExpertTo Italy. Once again the organisation by Antonio was flawless and everything worked perfectly. We spent 5 nights by lake Maggiore and 3 in Cogne in the Italian Alps. Both hotels and locations were fantastic - particularly the Bellvue in Cogne. Please see trip advisor if interested in the hotels as I will give a more specific review there - I'm not a fanatic reviewer but both really deserve it. We have used this company for the past 5 years and Antonio seems to have a real gift for finding fantastic hotels and matching locations to his clients. I would not usually put the level of trust in anyone to arrange holidays for me that I have with Antonio but he has delivered every time and I can unreservedly recommend his services. Italy is a beautiful country with huge variety - if you describe what you like to Antonio and let him make suggestions then you will not be disappointed. Very definitely 5 stars from me. So - Antonio and team, please keep it up! Jonread more

Antonio delivered more than expected! Our family of four stayed at two beautiful villa's on the Amalfi Coast. Both of the locations were top class. Antonio provided excellent service and was always available if we had questions about the details of our trip. He was easy to work with and we would recommend his services to others traveling to Italy.read more
