We had here a great time in Lezzeno! Thank you for your hospitality and your kindness.

We spent one week in this beautiful spot. The location is spectacular, with the terrace jutting directly out over the lake. We lingered for hours each morning over coffee as we watched the lake come to life with ferries, kayaks, and biplanes. Our hostess, Eva Bellini, was incredibly warm, helpful and kind as she guided us to local restaurants and venues we enjoyed. Our well-appointed apartment had everything we could possibly need right at hand. We highly recommend this spot for a quiet, peaceful, relaxing and unforgettable getaway.
We are a couple with a 2yo son, and spent four nights here. It really couldn't be a more beautiful location - the view from the balcony is just a perfect place to eat and sip an Aperol! Eva was so helpful and thoughtful - we really appreciated all the information and maps that were provided, and the kitchen was very well equipped. There's also a great swim spot just below the apartment - it was a bit slippy and stony for a small child, but the adults very much enjoyed it! We had a car, so found Lezzano very handy for exploring - we went to Villa Carlotta and Rogaro on the car ferry (amazing restaurants in Rogaro), explored Villa Malzi and Bellagio, and also got the boat to Menaggio and Varenna. There is also a wonderful fish restaurant in walking distance from the apartment. This apartment was extremely reasonably priced considering the location, and Eva couldn't have given us a warmer welcome, so I would recommend it to anyone.
Our group of 6 just spent a wonderful week in this lakeside villa in Lezzeno, just a short drive from bustling Bellagio. Our host, Eva Bellini, greeted us with warmth and enthusiasm when we arrived. She speaks perfect English as well as German and I think a few other languages. She helped us locate restaurants, shops, and anything else we needed. We enjoyed daily swims in the refreshing lake right from the property. The views of the lake and surrounding mountains and towns are unbeatable. We had everything we needed and more. The villa was sparkling clean and so very pleasant to relax in after a day of touring. Mornings were spent eating fresh baked bread as we sat on our balcony and watched the swans swim by. It felt like paradise. I would definitely return again and hope I get the chance to.
Our family of four recently finished our first European vacation,and with Lake Como on our wish list, and based on other reviews, decided on this wonderful Lezzeno apartment. We had no car, so we took the C30 bus from Como to the Crotto del Misto stop,and a short 150 meter walk south to the apartment,where we were warmly greeted by our hostess, Eva Bellini. She gave us a quick tour of the spacious 3 bedroom,2 bath,2 balcony 'villa' with amazing views of the lake from every window, then offered us a ride to the nearby Helvetia Pizzeria for fantastic pizzas and wine! She also gave us a ride to the local shop in Lezzeno for groceries the next day, and with the small shop almost next door, all of our needs were covered. The next few days were spent catching the almost-hourly C30 bus for the 10min ride to Bellagio,shopping,eating,site-seeing, or catching the ferry to Menaggio, or Varenna. It took a small bit of effort to figure out the ferry/bus schedule timing, as the C30 bus departs Bellagio well before dark,but there were taxis available if the need ever arose. We would arrive back at the apartment and instantly feel at home, with a lounge area with 2 sofas,TV/DVD, and lots of books, pamphlets about the area attractions, kitchen fully equipped and waiting,large dining table, and the balcony just outside to enjoy a glass of wine and a Lake Como sunset. The bedrooms and beds were all very comfortable, proven by the fact that we slept in most mornings. One benefit to early risers is that the bread at the shop next door may still be warm from the oven! But be aware that they only speak Italiano, so knowing the words for foods and numbers is helpful, but not required. The shopkeeper, Santina, was very helpful and patient, and her bread is fantastico!!
Our first trip to Europe, and our first trip to Italy, and we had the best hostess in Eva to introduce us to Italian hospitality. She had great recommendations for restaurants and attractions, and her love for the area shows. Our one regret about our Lake Como stay was that it was over far too quickly, and we all want to return soon! Molto Grazie, Eva!
PS: Crotto del Misto Ristorante, great food, great views, great people made for a magical last night's dinner! Molto Grazie, Marco y Alleso!
We had a wonderful week in this nice place. The apartment was really confortable with amazing view and our very kind host Eva.
We visited Bellagio, Varesa, Varena, Como, Lecco, ... which are around about 20/ 30 km.
The way to the house (during 20 km) is specially lovely for who likes driving... We loved it !
We hope come back soon.
Thanks again for your hospitality,
Shahin and Jhon and our for children from Paris
It's a rare occasion when I would write a review on anything at all but after our experience in Lezzeno I feel compelled to. Before taking our trip to Italy my wife and looked into hotels and just found everything to be incredibly expensive. I was told about a Vacation Rental website and started to research vacation homes. I literally came across hundreds. I admit I was a little hesitant on renting from someone other than a hotel but when I started to look at the benefits I decided to take a chance on it and we ended up doing this in every stop of our unforgettable journey. Part of that journey took us to the quite little town of Lezzeno.
Lezzeno is about 6km from Bellagio. When choosing this location I was worried about getting back and forth to Bellagio as it serves as the main hub of the area. In Bellagio you can make your way to any of the smaller towns on the lake via the ferry. Which is very cheap. Figuring out the bus was difficult at first but ended up being really easy after acquiring a schedule in English. I can scan this for anybody needing it. Very easy. So we did not need to rent a car.
On the first day arriving in Como/Lezzeno, we ran into problems actually finding the vacation rental. This however was 100% my own fault as of all the information in which I decided to forget was Eva's home phone number. After being stranded for hours and nobody being able to point us in the right direction, I finally came across a wireless signal that I piggy backed on and retrieved her number from my e-mail. I called her and she came and found us immediately. I can truly say, that on our travels, we have never came across anybody so accommodating. Once we got to our flat we knew we made the right decision. Quite, Clean and very nice. The balcony and the views made all difference in the world and this is something that's hard to come by in a hotel unless you're ready to pay for it.
We made our lunches in the morning before we left for the day and picked up some food in town that we could prepare at nights in the flat.
A couple things to take in account. Eva speaks fluent English which REALLY comes in handy. When it comes to price, you just can't beat what she has to offer you for the price she asks. She's right around the corner (literally) if you ever need anything at all.
The Como part of trip was truly an experience. Very recommended.
On the road from Como to Bellagio, Lezzeno is a nice village on the shores of Lake Como, 6 km from Bellagio. With its many hamlets scattered along the shore of the Lake and at the foot of the mountains, Lezzeno is also a renowned residential centre. Within a 2 min walk, a lakeside restaurant serve up typical Italian dishes and pizzas. An in town sports complex offers a swimming pool and a tennis court. They also rent kajaks and canoes. Just 500 m away is a boat service with motorboats for hire. The bus stop is 80 m away, while boats and hydrofoils leave and arrive from the landing stage, 1200 m away.
To shop for groceries and consumables, there are several small grocers, fruit stores and butchers along Lezzeno's main road. There are also some restaurants and pizzerias where you can find a list of the typical dishes of these area.
