Varenna is in an excellent position and a very popular location for both investors and tourists. The town receives 48,000 to 50,000 requests for accommodation per annum, but there are only 250 beds per night in Varenna. This is naturally a very healthy situation for an investor, with little scope for further development of property. Expected rentals for one beds are €500 pw off-season, and €700 pw high season with expected annual income in excess of €15,000.

The location of these apartments on a hillside with unobstructed views are guaranteed for life as there is no possibility to build in front of them. The development is also very close to the centre of Varenna with access to its restaurants, harbour and regular ferries to Bellagio and Menaggio. This makes it an ideal candidate for capital growth and rental demand – but at very affordable prices as a result of us securing the units at wholesale value (much lower than comparable new builds in the area).
