The space
Situated in a typical small Italian town, just ten minutes' walk to the lake and the town centre, your English-speaking host will be glad to help with information on places to go and things to do.

This spacious apartment, on the ground floor of a modern detached house, has a master bedroom with a comfortable king-size bed, a second bedroom with twin beds, (also available as a double bed), and a sitting room with sofa-bed. Outside, you can relax and sunbathe on the lawn, or sit in the gazebo and let your children play in safety in our attractive garden. There's a fully-equipped kitchen where you can take your meals and a bathroom with shower and washer.
We have a charcoal-fired barbecue for your use too.
Lierna is a quiet town, just five minutes by train or car from Varenna and from there, ferries connect you to Bellagio, Como and all parts of beautiful Lake Como, famous for its historic villas and gardens.

If you're a hiking or rock-climbing enthusiast, we can help you with routes and advice. There are two beaches in Lierna, La Punta, at our end of the town, and Riva Bianca, about twenty minutes' walk at the other end of the town. You can swim at either beach. Lierna has three good restaurants as well as cafés, bars and pizzerias.

You don't need to hire a car. Lierna has its own railway station with hourly services at most times of the day to Milan and northwards to Varenna and Colico. For more information, visit our own website (search on the internet for Villa Olivia, Lierna) where you'll find a host of suggestions for things to do, places to go and travel advice.
We keep our dog in our apartment so guests who aren't comfortable around dogs won't have to meet her. She is very quiet.

Where you’ll be

Lierna, Lombardy, Italy

Apart from the two beaches in Lierna, we suggest you explore the town and its surroundings . To help you get started, we have prepared a booklet with routes and information for three walks around the town that are suitable for all ages. You can download a copy from my website (search on the web for Villa Olivia, Lierna).

I'm English, married to Gian Battista who's Italian and I've lived in Lierna for over 30 years. We have four grown-up children, and a quiet, friendly labrador dog. We enjoy the outdoor life and sporting activities. Apart from managing my holiday apartment rentals, I teach English as a second language.
