Bellagio - Pescallo Apartments - best holiday ever
Submitted: June 5, 2011
Stayed: May 2011
Four of us (2 couples) stayed in the 3-bedroom apartment for 2 weeks in May 2011. Everything about the apartment, the location, and the owner exceeded our expectations. Close enough to Bellagio for shops and restaurants, but far enough away to be quiet, only a 10-minute walk (lots of steps, though). Pietro lives on site and nothing was too much trouble. The apartment is cleaned daily, and washing / ironing is available on request (Elisabetta was wonderful). Views from the rooms and the living area are spectacular, right on the water.
Every recomendation Pietro gave us (boat hire, restaurants, shops, etc) was first class and we generally got a discount when we mentioned his name, and that we were staying at Pescallo Apartments - even free home delivery of some shopping.
The living area is spacious and more than enough room for 4 adults to relax and spread out in comfort. The bedrooms are separated and all en-suite, with large beds. The kitchen is well-stocked with all brand new appliances, making the occasional meal at home a breeze. The whole interior of the apartments has been done by Pietro and is a credit to him, with nothing but the best in fit-out throughout.
Make sure you hire a motor boat from AC Boat hire, they deliver right to the door/water front. Bellagio Taxis are a great way to get around if you don't have a car, and their transfer form Milan to the apartment is worth every cent. The nearby supermarket has everything you need if you want to dine in, but why would you with so many great eating places in Bellagio, especially Trattoria San Giacamo (the best in town) and the local pastry shop for breakfast and treats. Parking is available nearby if you have a car, but Bellagio is the centre for all water taxis and ferries (including car ferries) so you really don't need a car once you're here.
We have no hesitation in recommending the apartments to anyone wanting a true Lake Como experience.
