Bellagio, Lake Como, Lombardy
Mingle with the locals in an authentic village with mountain views.
Very comfy home in a quaint hamlet with great amenities, 2km from the lake.
Pop to the cafe/ bakery for a frothy cappuccino & yummy pastries.
Nip to the grocery for some local cheese for lunch.
Enjoy an aperitivo at the bar before heading to one of the local restaurant/pizzerias.
In short, live like a local whilst on holiday.
Accommodation & Amenities
Casa Bellagina is in an ideal location for exploring both the lake and surrounding mountains. Guests love experiencing life in a real village and meeting the locals. Free parking and all essential amenities are a few steps away.
The apartment stays cool in summer and the balcony lets in the breeze. High ceilings and thick walls mean there is no need for air conditioning, but portable fans are available. It's equipped with Smart TV, Netflix, Alexa, a Bluetooth speaker and a varied library of DVDs and books. I used to live here, which means this was not set up as a bland holiday space. You'll find plenty of home comforts to help you feel at home.
You'll find it is spacious, welcoming & well-equipped. There's a small balcony with views of both the Grigne mountains & local life on the piazza. It's easy to while away time just watching the rhythmic goings-on and waving to the locals.
There's great lighting, plentiful mirrors and abundant wardrobe space. It's cool in summer and cosy in winter with a wood-burning stove in the living/dining room, in addition to the central heating. The second bedroom can have either twin beds or a double bed as requested.
There are 3 restaurants/pizzerias within close walking distance. Self-catering is easy as the kitchen is perfectly equipped and there is a well-stocked grocery a few steps away. Enjoy breakfast Italian style with tempting pastries and brioches from the bakery immediately below the apartment. You'll be lured by the smell of fresh pastries. This a great place to meet the locals.
Whilst accessible by public transport, a car gives you access to restaurants in the mountains behind Bellagio where the cuisine is very authentic and the prices lower. There are many walking trails in the hills and countryside away from the lake. Milan can be reached by train from Varenna or Lecco for a day of culture and shopping. There are many beautiful villas and gardens to visit nearby,
