My friends and I were lucky enough to stay at Il Cortiletto during the end of a 10-day Italy trip. I had a good feeling about the place from the time of booking, given Elisabetta's always prompt and informative emails. From the moment we arrived in Bellagio and Elisabetta met us at the ferry, we knew we'd hit a home run. The apartment itself is spacious, clean, well-appointed and well-stocked for your vacation needs. It's located in the middle of town, steps from the water and ferry stations. Elisabetta & Co. helped plan our entire stay in Bellagio, giving us excellent recommendations for activities, dining and transportation. Every recommendation we followed--touring Villa Serbelloni, dining at Hotel Florence, swimming at Lido--was perfect. The one minor maintenance issue we had with the apartment was resolved immediately. The true icing on the cake was taking a cooking class with Silvana at Gusto Italiano, their adjacent cooking school. We spent a lovely 4 hours making a full Italian dinner, and enjoying it in the apartment-adjacent courtyard. (The courtyard is open to guests when the cooking class is not in session, making it the perfect place to enjoy a bottle of wine at the end of a day in Bellagio.) All of this for an incredible price. We couldn't have asked for a better experience, and I can't give Il Cortiletto and the wonderful family who owns it a higher recommendation. BOOK NOW!
