This is a beautiful property, and the photos and description are absolutely accurate. It clearly deserves a 5 star rating. All three bedrooms have modern air conditioning units that work well - essential in the recent hot and humid conditions. The master bedroom and en-suite are lovely. Excellent quality bed linen but a very firm mattress (like every other mattress in Italy in my experience). The other two bedrooms only have windows into a covered light well and the largest bedroom is a basement room which some could find claustrophobic although it does have a separate entrance and is therefore very private. There is quite a steep climb of 50 steps from the car park, which is the price to pay for the stunning location! We were a group of four adults and the apartment was a perfect size for us. Very well equipped kitchen including pantry essentials. There is a pizza restaurant and fruit and veg shop nearby for supplies, and a good supermarket a short drive away down a turning off the road away from Bellagio town, but well hidden! We had a car, which we thought would be surplus to requirements, but turned out to be essential for supermarket trips. Bellagio town is a ten minute walk away, with many restaurants and the ferry terminals, but we also enjoyed the Terrace restaurant at the Belvedere Hotel which is near the apartment. A trip on the lake in Carlo’s yacht is also a must-do.
This property it amazing! From Marzia meeting us for check-in to the views to the modern apartment, everything was first class. We were 3 couples traveling together and there was plenty of room. Carlo booked us a sailing trip with his company which was fabulous. Our captain Michael was wonderful and we had so much fun sitting on Lake Como enjoying the views and chatting about Italian life with him. Carlo also booked a private chef to come in and cook us dinner one night. Delicious! Marzia arranged transportation to and from Milan for us and was always available for questions. We were sad to leave. I highly recommend this property!
Great apartment in a wonderful location!
The location is wonderful and dealing with the property manager was extremely easy with an excellent response time. There is plenty of outside seating, however, we could not take advantage of it because it was raining and everything was wet. There are a lot of stairs so pack lightly! The view of Lake Como is extraordinary so walking up those stairs is worth it! We would have been more comfortable in the apartment if we had been able to sit outside because the living and dining areas are tight for 6 adults. We think the space would be larger and, therefore, easier to get around if the chairs for the dining table were able to fit under the table. We also needed more light, especially in the kitchen area when preparing food in the evening and it would help to change out the bulb in the lamp in the living room to a brighter one. I gave everything 5 stars except for cleanliness. The only reason I gave it 4 stars was because of the garlic smell when you opened the door to the apartment. We discovered that it was coming from one of the wooden cutting boards and we tried to clean it the best that we could. If you do not feel like cooking, La Belligina restaurant is about a 3 minute walk from the apartment and the food, service and view were all excellent. The property manager sent me the link for 2 local grocery stores that where a short distance away when driving. I did not want to have to carry heavy grocery bags back from the grocery stores in town so driving was preferable for us. Parking can be a problem. We were in 3 cars and the property only has space for 1 vehicle. The city of Bellagio had just changed the free parking lot across the street from the apartment to one where you have to pay. We were able to find a free spot in a small parking lot further down the street. Bellagio is a beautiful, enchanting village. If we were to visit again, I would definitely stay at Apartment Belvedere.
Best views in Lake Como
The views from the garden cannot be beaten. The property is very clean tidy and well equipped and the owners are very friendly and helpful. The only downside was the access to the downstairs bedroom was via steps outside but didn’t really cause a problem. The town is easily walkable and other areas easily accessed by boat or bus. Highly recommend.
We absolutely loooooved this home and would love to return. Perfectly situation, stunning views, beautifully renovated. Only point to mention is that third bedroom is on a different level with a different entrance, although that was no problem for us.
Excellent location with all you need
The exchange of information was very timely, Marzia's assistance upon arrival was perfect. She then gave us all necessary feedback to our questions without any delays. The quality of the place is very good, and the kitchen is very well stuffed with whatever you may need. The maid service every day is basic, but that's what you need. The location is IMPECCABLE, 5 minutes walk to Bellagio, where parking is of course very complicated. We highly recommend Belvedere, particularly to people like us: 6 couples.
This summer I offer some sailing tours with my personal classic sail boat.
