About Elisabetta

Hello I am Elisabetta, born and raised in beautiful Bellagio and now living here with my family. I have been travelling quite a bit around the world but always felt the need to come back to my lake and to our beautiful surroundings. I love meeting people and share experiences with them and somehow help them fall in love with Bellagio while being our guests in our IL CORTILETTO Apartment.

Why Elisabetta chose Bellagio

The unique position of IL CORTILETTO Apartment is what makes your vacation a memorable one. I love this place as it is my former home and what is so precious about it is the location in the center of town and the privacy of the little patio. It is wonderful to be in town but having your little outdoor space to enjoy the nice summer weather.

So sad to leave this wonderful apartment!

  • 5 of 5

The perfect base in Bellagio. So close to the ferries, great restaurants and the mini-market and such a lovely space to relax in when not out sightseeing. We really appreciated the outdoor dining table and enjoyed many a pre-dinner drink there.

The apartment was very clean and well equipped and Elisabetta was a great host. We hope to return soon and would recommend to anyone.

Great location in the old part of town.

  • 4 of 5

A very convenient location, just off a lovely quiet courtyard. The kitchen is a little basic, which is only a problem if cooking at home, but otherwise the apartment is well-equipped. Internet access was adequate, but there were very few English TV channels (news only). Very clean and pleasant decor. Overall, we would say the location is the best feature and would choose this apartment again if we visit Bellagio.

A Great Apartment in the Centre of Bellagio

  • 5 of 5

My friend & I stayed for 3 nights in this great apartment. Communication with the owner, Elisabetta, was always friendly, prompt and clear. Elisabetta's friend checked us in and explained everything. She also recommended her family pizzeria nearby called Baba Yaga Steak House & Pizza (Via Eugenio Vitali, 8). We would highly recommend it – it was the best pizza we had during our vacation in Italy! The apartment is as it appears in the pictures and is spacious with a large bathroom and 2 bedrooms with large wardrobes in each. The extra touches like movies available for us to watch, soap and lots of extra towels was appreciated. The apartment is steps from the passenger ferry dock and has a lovely courtyard. Unfortunately we were unable to enjoy it as it rained all 3 days we were in Bellagio. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend this apartment.

A perfect place to stay in Bellagio!

  • 5 of 5

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!

What a perfect place for our stay in Bellagio!

  • 5 of 5

Oh my, I cannot imagine having stayed anywhere else! It was in the perfect location to fully experience all that Bellagio has to offer.

The beautifully decorated apartment was clean, well stocked with all we needed and Betta was so helpful and wonderful to us during our stay. We felt at home and could have stayed a month! It was very hard to leave this little piece of paradise. Thank you!!
