I visited this facility

We were satisfied with Varenna. I liked the lifestyle and amenities that they had. The whole community was fine. It was clean, well maintained, and well kept. Everything was excellent. It was one of the better ones I had looked at.

We've been to Varenna at Fountaingrove, and their food is lovely. It seemed like they have recruited people to come from many other places because we didn’t see any familiar faces, and it is just near to where we live. They built it to be absolutely gorgeous. Their rooms are lovely, and it is very nice, but we just didn’t feel very at home there.

Varenna is updated; the room is about 22 square feet, and they have beautiful grounds. It is located in a nice neighborhood with a golf course. The staff is excellent and very accommodating, however the food is mediocre. They had a swimming pool, gym, and exercise classes.

Varenna at Fountaingrove is like living in a five star hotel. The thing is you have to be independent when you go into this facility. The food is pretty good in this facility. You pay a certain amount for your food, and then if you don’t use it at all, you can invite your family and friends to come and eat to use up the money.
