Excellent reviews

Opening the shutters you are greeted by the early morning sun glistening on the shimmering lake, the snow capped mountains cascading into the water. The yellow and ochre houses across the lake reflect into the water. Breakfast can be taken on the balcony or the terrace overlooking the lake - which is also an excellent spot for sunbathing.

After breakfast, why not explore the peace and tranquility of Limonta? This tiny pretty village is empty of people - it's network of paths winding past the pretty houses.

Driving the short distance to Bellagio you can park in Loppia (a favourite with George Clooney) and stroll through the beautiful grounds of Villa Melzi beside the lake. In May, the abundant azaleas and rhododendrons are in full flower.

Arriving in the heart of Bellagio, you can stop for a coffee at one of the many cafes - our favourite is Bar Rossi. Sitting under the colonnades spend some time people watching before exploring the network of cobbled steps and drifting into the many beautiful shops. Bellagio really is 'the pearl of the lake' and feels as if time has stood still.

Stroll back to the lake and catch a ferry boat to one of the many nearby villages and gardens including Villa Carlotta at Tremezzo. The picturesque village of

Varenna is less than a 10 minute ride where you can stop for lunch. Eat at the lake side creperie or if you fancy a longer lunch try the Hotel Du Lac, (you can also have a lovely evening cocktail watching the sunset from their lakeside terrace).

From here you can then explore the gardens of the Villa Cypresi and the Villa Monastero before catching the boat back to Bellagio.

There are many excellent restaurants in Bellagio to choose from, or you can return to the apartment and take a 5 minute stroll down to Trattoria D’Anna. There is no menu - the waitress just explains what they have each day. This simple restaurant never fails to surprise with its ample portions and warm welcome. Alternatively, if you are tired after a long day exploring, the apartment has a well equipped kitchen and a great selection of films to watch - after the sun has set on the lake!

A beautiful apartment located in the small village of Limonta less than 5km from the picturesque town of Bellagio comprising of 1 double bedroom, a bathroom (with shower), a large sitting room with double aspect views of the lake, a double sofa bed and a well equipped kitchen. The apartment has a balcony overlooking the lake, plus a small dining terrace overlooking the gardens to the lake and we have just completed a stunning new sun terrace. Free WiFi included.

The local ferry to Bellagio and other towns on the lake is a short walk from the apartment. There is also an excellent local restaurant 'Trattoria D'Anna' which is about a 5 minute walk.

Located in the heart of Limonta a typical Italian village, the apartment is perfect for 2 people but can accommodate up to 3 adults or 2 adults and 1 or 2 children. It also offers the option of alfresco dining on the balcony or lake view terrace. The property makes an ideal location for those who want to explore the many delights of Lake Como.

The nearby Bellagio Sporting Club is available for those wishing to take advantage of its swimming pool and tennis courts and restaurant.

The Best Surprise of Our Trip

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had looked forward for many years to our first trip to the Lake Como area.The expesience exceeded our expextations by far and one of the biggest reasons was staying in "La Pinin" -- the view from the balcony is fabulous!

Excellent apartment and views

  • 5 of 5

Everything about staying at this apartment worked like clockwork from beginning to end. The booking process was good and I was quickly contacted by Steve who gave us all the additional information we would need. When we arrived all the instructions to find and enter the apartment were totally accurate and so was the description of the place. We quickly looked around the apartment and then walked out onto the balcony to an absolutely stunning view up and down the lake.

Steve and Francine have thought of just about everything you could possibly need. We rent a lot of properties and invariably there are things missing or broken etc, but not here; everything you need is there, everything worked, and there were many other things, we didn't even need, just in case.

Getting in and out of the drive is bit of a challenge the first time but after that it's not a problem. The bathroom has a great shower, the bed in comfortable, and the apartment is very quiet daytime and at night. The location is great as it's only a few minutes from Belaggio where you can get a boat to just about everywhere, which is much nicer than driving on these crazy roads. We would be very happy to come back here again and will recommend it to everyone we know.

Excellent apartment with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at La Pinin after dark and the moment we opened the door, we knew we had chosen well and that we had found the relaxed, comfortable holiday base we were hoping for. The apartment was very clean, comfortably furnished, spacious, very well equipped and just as described. When we opened the door to the balcony and saw the lights of the villages around Lake Como sparkling on the water we knew we would be spending much of the next 2 weeks sitting there soaking up the tranquility of the area. In daylight next morning the view up and down the lake was even more spectacular. The apartment is very secure and has it's own parking space.

The location was perfect for us, away from the bustle of Bellagio, yet within easy access of ferries, buses and trains. While public transport is good and cheap, a car is necessary to access supermarkets, restaurants and Bellagio itself. There is an excellent trattoria, D'Anna, within 5 minutes walk of the apartment where we ate on a number of occasions, but no other restaurants or shop in Limonta.

We had a fantastic 2 weeks exploring the local area by ferry, foot and car, and further afield by bus and train including trips to Bergamo, Lecco, Como city and Milan. Our hosts, Steve and Francine were very helpful throughout and responded quickly to any queries prior to and during our stay.

We would wholeheartedly recommend this property.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your kind words. We try to make La Pinin a home from home with everything from ample coat hangers to a cork screw of phone charger! The setting is ideal for enjoying the beauty of the lake but also the tranquility of a small village with the amenities of Bellagio very close by.

A relaxing retreat by the lake

  • 5 of 5

We've (two adults and a child) have just returned from a fantastic weeks stay at this gem of a property on Lake Como. The location is great with a fantastic view of the lake; however a car is a necessity to reach other areas of the lake to explore.

Facilities were fantastic, communication from Steve was fab (thanks for such a quick response to my text on our first day!) and all the information in the apartment was very well received!

On a more general Lake Como note, we'd recommend hiring a boat for a few hours as its a great way to see the lake! We also enjoyed a trip up the mountain by cable car at Barzio-Piani di Bobbio and went tubing at the top. We ate at a number of super restaurants, but Bella Vista near the apartment was excellent value and thoroughly enjoyable!

Thank you for such a lovely trip!

Stunning lake view apartment in pretty village of Limonta, less than 5km from Bellagio The Pearl of the Lake. Close to Varenna, Menaggio, Tremezzo and Como as well as the numerous villas and gardens on Lake Como. These include Villa Carlotta, Villa Monastero, Villa Cypresi, Villa Melzi and Villa Balbianello, and Villa Oleandra home to George Clooney! Ideal for relaxation, walking and enjoying the tranquility of the lake and mountains. Plenty of good restaurants and shops in the heart of Bellagio making Limonta a wonderful place to return to after a busy day out and about!
