Casa Perlecco B is one of the holiday homes available in a small complex. Please find a general description of the complex below, and please scroll further down for a description of Casa Perlecco B.
Casa Perlecco A and Casa Perlecco B are two apartments that are part of a large country house, located in the hamlet of San Vito (one of the 22 hamlets that make up the town of Bellagio), a 30-minute walk to the center of Bellagio and to the ferries. The house, before being restored as a modern house, used to be part of agricultural estate which nowadays no longer exists. In their large and beautiful home the owners have created two small studio apartments, which are a great place to return to after a long day of sightseeing, especially if you are travelling on a budget.
The complex can be reached by bus or by car. Given the distance to the bus stop, and since taxi service is not always readily available, we recommend having a car to tour the area. However, once you are at the villa you will find that, if you like walking, using the buses and the ferries you will be able to reach the many interesting lakeside villages, as well as the towns of Como and Lecco, and their train stations. Private boat trips on the lake can be arranged as well. If you have a car, you will be able to park it near the villa.
If you are fond of biking, the owners will be happy to lend you mountain bikes to tour the surroundings.
You will be approximately 90 minutes from Lugano, Bergamo and Milan, and roughly 30 minutes from Como and Lecco. The popular attraction of Villa Carlotta, in Tremezzo, will be an easy trip by ferry across the lake, and you will be able to walk to the botanic gardens of Villa Melzi, only roughly one mile away (1.5 km).
In the area you will find a wide range of tourist services: fitness center, squash facilities, and mountain bike rentals, a sports club with swimming pool, tennis court, sauna, and gym. Water skiing is also available, and there is an 18-hole golf course 30 minutes away. From Chevrio (a 15-minute drive) you will be able to enjoy breathtaking views of Lake Como. Several cafes and restaurants, as well as shops, are available in the center of Bellagio (a 5-minute drive or a 20-minute walk).
Bellagio is the most well-known resort of the area, often referred as "the pearl of the lake". It lies at the tip of the headland that splits Lake Como's two branches (the west branch toward the town of Como, and the east branch toward Lecco). Its charm fascinated, in past centuries, artists and poets, such as Pliny the Younger, who once owned what is now Villa Serbelloni, and then Taine, Longfellow, Twain, Stendhal, Flaubert, Faure, Liszt. The original charm is still intact, and makes of this destination a must-see for travellers to Lake Como.
If you prefer, you can enjoy the beautiful garden that surrounds the countryhouse, and, when you're tired, you could rest at the shared relax lounge, where you can read a good book, or just enjoy the quietness of nature around you.
The garden is 500 square meters (5380 square feet) large. It is partly shaded by trees and by a gazebo. It is equipped with a table, chairs, deck chairs and sun loungers. Here you will also find a barbecue. The garden is shared with the other guests staying at the complex, and there will be an area reserved for your exclusive use.
The furnishings of the living room are simple. Here you will find a matrimonial bed (160 cm/62 inches, wider than a queen-size bed). The furnishings include an armchair. In the living room you will also find a cooking area. The kitchenette is equipped with a two-burner gas cooker, an electric oven, a small refrigerator without freezer, a microwave oven, an Italian-style coffee-maker and an American-style coffee-maker (bring your filters!). The dining table can accommodate two guests. In this room you will find a satellite television (local channels). From the living room you will be able to enter the garden through a French door. The room also has a window. It is equipped with an air conditioning/heating unit.
The bathroom is equipped with a washbasin, a toilet and a shower. You will be able to enter the bathroom from the living room.
We loved our time at Casa Perlecco B. It was a real shame we had to leave.
Please do not be put off by the pictures, it is a lot nicer in person.
Vittorio [the owner] and his family were fantastic. They made us feel really welcome from the start, so kind and helpful. They also gave us some advice about best walking routes, bars, cheaper restaurants and supermarkets. All in all they really made our trip a very memorable one and we would definitely go back there in a heartbeat.
Summer In Italy has been brilliant. From the moment I sent you an inquiry till speaking to Melanie afterwards, I can't thank you enough for making our trip to Italy a very special and memorable one.
Casa Perlecco B is a perfect apartment near Bellagio. You can find in the apartment everything you need, it is a well equipped, comfortable place.
