Overview of Villa Sima

What Oliver loves…

  • The villa is set within the grounds of castle ruins with ancient caves underground. It is very atmospheric.
  • There are countless spots within the grounds where the views of the lakes and mountains are breathtaking.
  • There are many activities for kids including: pool, ping-pong, playground, tennis, and games.

What you should know…

  • The castle is at the top of the hill so there is a winding road to get in and out.
  • No A/C but it is not really needed since the villa is at the top of the hill where it is much cooler.

Villa Sima is a 3 story villa providing beautiful accommodation for 8 guests. Within the grounds of the estate, there are stunning views of the lake and mountains.

 
The villa is situated in a wonderful position overlooking Lake Como in Lombardy and is in northern Italy at the base of the Alps. Located at the top of the hill over the beautiful town of Varenna, the villa offers fantastic accommodation with stunning outdoor space and swimming facilities.
 
The beautiful property has several walking paths, gardens and seating areas for guests to enjoy, as well as breathtaking views of the lake and mountains.

The villa is located within a large estate on the edge of a small village (population 20) with endless on-site activities for children of all ages including: swimming pool, tennis court, table tennis, castle ruins to explore, underground caves and a playground.
