The town offers a wide variety of very good local restaurants, bars, shops and offers excellent transport links with a main line Lecco-Milan train service and road links to the ‘Superstrada’ motorway which takes visitors southwards towards Lecco, the historical Industrial capital of Lake Como.

The attraction can be reached along the specially built walking platforms which run through the gorge and past its many mysterious caves and rock formations.

Beautiful apartment in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this lovely apartment last week which is a 5 minute drive to Bellano town and the lakeside. Bellano has some lovely restaurants and a beautiful waterfall (Orrido di Bellano). The apartment is well-equipped with a lovely swimming pool which our daughters (6 & 4) and ourselves swam in everyday! The photos of this apartment don't do it justice. It is a penthouse apartment with 2 terraces (one with lake views) and it is large and spacious. Highly recommended.

Lovely place to explore lake Como

  • 5 of 5

Very nice apartment in a quiet area above a pretty town of Bellano with beautiful views over the lake and the mountains. It was very clean, well equipped and had everything we needed. This was a great place to stay to visit lake Como and the surroundings. Our host provided enough information about things to do, and made personal recommendations about places to visit which were really helpful.

Beautiful apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is absolutely perfect. So clean and has everything that you need. The pool is a fantastic addition. Views from balconies were stunning. Wonderful atmosphere.

It's in a good location - 10mins from varenna port (and varenna itself is just wonderful). It is 1 hr form menaggio. 1 hr from belaggio (popular places to visit). 1 thing you must do - go to varenna and hike up to Castillo di vezio. Breathtaking.

Caroline was amazing with communication and she gave us SO much helpful information before we arrived. It was all very clear and she's clearly a very friendly person too.

Thank you Caroline!

Schöne Herbstferien verbracht

  • 4 of 5

Unsere Woche in den Herbstferien war ganz schön. Die Wohnung ist schön eingerichtet und hat alles was man für einen Familienurlaub braucht. Sehr schöne ruhige Lage mit Blick auf den See...Schade war nur, dass wir den (beheizten) Pool nicht mehr nutzen konnten, dieser war leider schon abgedeckt (wurde uns vorher nicht mitgeteilt). Einige Dinge gehören verbessert, z. B. ist der Toilettensitz beweglich und die Toilettenspülung funktioniert nicht gut.

Owner's Response: Beautiful autumn holidays spent Our week in the autumn holidays was quite nice. The apartment is nicely furnished and has everything you need for a family vacation. Very nice quiet location with a view of the lake ... It was just a pity that we could not use the (heated) pool, this was unfortunately already covered (we were not informed before). Some things are improved, eg. B. the toilet seat is movable and the toilet flush does not work well. Simon, I am happy you had a lovely holiday, I must stress that outdoor swimming in Italy doesnt happen after much after September, although pool is heated, its only to make for more comfortable summer bathing, in mid to late september the community closes it. I am sure this is stated in the details somewhere, I will check. Also just in ref to the toliet flush, generally on the hills at altitude surronding the lake, water pressure is normally less. The toliet still works sufficently... I highly recommend you return to the area in the summer months to avail of the heat, sunshine and outdoor swimming, Best wishes, Caroline, John and Emma.
