Overview

Lake Como Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom (+ sofabed in lounge) sleeps 2-3 people with sun terrace & WiFi

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 at a special rate for those wishing to take advantage of its swimming pool and tennis courts and restaurant.

About Steve Fletcher

After visiting Lake Como for many years, we bought our beautiful 'home from home' 7 years ago. We pride ourselves on providing a great experience for our guests - from tips on the easiest ways to travel including the best airport and car hire options, where to stock up on supplies between the airport and Limonta, or suggestions on the best places to eat and the nicest gardens to visit. We send each guest a clear 'how to find the apartment' guide as well as contact numbers to reach us just incase!

Steve Fletcher purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Steve Fletcher chose Lake Como

The apartment is clean, contemporary and spacious with everything you could need.

We've tried to think of the things we like to find when travelling - from an iPhone charger to an iron, hair dryer, plug adaptor or torch. The apartment is a wonderful place to call home for a holiday!

What makes this apartment unique

We have our own private parking space, a balcony and 2 outside terraces. Inside the apartment we have free WiFi and a great selection of films to watch on the HD 40" TV if you want a night in!

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!

Lovely. Very homely and welcoming at the end of the day.

  • 5 of 5

The property was in a great location with lovely views over the lake.

Very comfy and equipped with everything needed, ie. kettle, oven, iron. The essentials but also some of the smaller items you don't get in a hotel.

Nice and relaxing after a long and tiring day walking in the mountains.

Perfect....

  • 5 of 5

La Pinn was a perfect choice. It was almost home from home, with all the essentials from bottler opener to dishwasher... and the added bonus of an outstanding view.

The property was exceptionally clean with plenty of extra bedding, towels etc.. The information provided by the owner was first class. Which made finding the property and local supermarkets a breeze.

An ideal location close to Bellagio and would highly recommend this property.

Talk about "Room with a View"!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent four glorious days at La Pinin and could not have been happier with our choice! Limonta is truly just minutes away from Bellagio so that location is fabulous. The views from the apartment are breathtaking! The apartment is wonderfully comfortable and really well equipped--big kitchen with everything one needs to cook up great Italian meals--and excellent food shopping nearby, also some really good restaurants (Salice Blu!!!). Tip for future guests: you can drive to Bellagio and park opposite the Sporting Club just as you turn onto the road to Bellagio. Street parking is free there and it's only about a 10 minute walk into the center of Bellagio.

A great base to explore Lake Como

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed La Pinin. The views over the Lecco arm of Lake Como are,of course the highlight. Beautiful. The apartment is comfortable and well-equipped and in a good location. Within 10 minutes drive of Bellagio, but off the main tourist hub. You can walk down to Trattoria Ana and Le Toretta is five minutes by car in Visgnola- both excellent restaurants. Lots of walks within an hour's drive.

All booking and arrival arrangements went very smoothly.

La Pinin - Amazing!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at La Pinin on our trip to Italy for our anniversary. What an amazing treat it was!! We absolutely loved La Pinin!! The apartment had it all - the views, beauty and cleanliness of a resort, yet all the convenience of ammenities, like being at home: full kitchen, clothes washer, etc. The location made it very convenint for traveling around the lake - just moments from town (Bellagio), we were able to hop on the ferries and get to all the desired cities easily. It was also quite nice being so close to the charming town of Bellagio, with great restaurants, shops, and views!! Also, the owners of La Pinin were extrememly helpful in accomodating us and were available to us very late at night when we arrived and were having trouble finding the apartment (because it was dark out). They were also very friendly and helpful in coordinating our trip. I highly recommend La Pinin to anyone looking for an enchanted and magical place to get away. We are forever in awe of this place and hope everyone gets a chance to experience it!!
