About Rita Kobrak

We both have worked in tourism for many years, taking tourists around Italy. My family is Italian and it was always my dream to own a place in Italy. We spend as much time in Italy as we can and hope to move there. We have started doing cooking and yoga breaks here too.

Rita Kobrak purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Rita Kobrak chose Bellano

We love the mountain and lake view from the flat and we always visit Bellano when we are there. We enjoy the Thursday market in Bellano and swimming in the lake.It is an easy drive across to Switzerland or to Milan for a bit of shopping.

Negligent owner, Italian speaking caretaker, untidy flat

  • 1 of 5

It was a real disappointment.

The owner was totally indifferent, she did not even write a short letter to us saying hello when we transferred the whole amount of the rental fee. Two days later I wrote to her asking if everything was all right.

A few days before the journey she asked us in a letter to call the caretaker WHEN we arrived at the station of Bellano because he had the key of the flat. I replied saying it was OK, and that we would be at the station at 6 or 7 o'clock. When we arrived at the station at seven o'clock, the caretaker who did not speak English told us we would have to wait for an hour because he was working. So after 11 hours of travelling we were sitting at the station with our 7-year-old son for 70 minutes. When we finally got into the flat at around 20.30 p.m., the impresson was awful. The bed was not made for my son, later we had to look for a blanket and bedlinen and make his bed. The cupboard was full of untidy, scattered pillows, towels and so on. A part of the ironing-board, two of the garden-chairs and all the sun beds were broken and two garden chairs and the table on the terrace were dirty. The bush was so high on the terrace that we could not see the lake at all!!! (We made a video about the conditions of the flat to prove it.) The washing machine was full of water when we arrived, the cleaning lady took some bedlinen out of it, but the water remained in the machine. Finally they solved the problem, but later we also experienced that the washing machine did not work properly. I wrote a letter indignantly to the owner via Homeaway and then wrote an sms to her as well. We did not get an answer that evening or the following morning. We gave it up and cleaned the flat and tidied everything. Next morning the caretaker and the cleaning lady appeared at 9 o'clock when we were about leaving the flat and going to Varenna by boat. Then we noticed that the owner answered to us the previous afternoon and wrote that the caretaker would cut the bush.

The water of the swimming-pool was really cold, my husband and my son could swim in it once but the following day they started to cough. The Italian inhabitants were sitting around the swimming-pool every afternoon, so it was really crowded. An electric pylon spoiled the lake-view and the noise of the motorway could be heard on the terrace.

I do not recommend this flat at all although Bellano and the little towns of the Lake Como are magnificent and worth visiting them.

Owner's Response: Hi , I am so sorry that you were not happy . All contact with home and away is done by email and I had written to say contact mr natale who has the keys one hour before arrival so he could be there as he works one hour away ( hence the wait when you arrived) When you messaged that flat flat was not tidy and hedge needed cutting i replied straight away and sent natale to flat and said he would arrive in morning but you did not let him in. I apologise for the cold water in pool and the local italians annoying you at the pool but they live there as the flat has a shared pool . I did my best to answer and sort out all your queries and am sorry if you did not like our flat but glad you liked bellano.

Gorgeous view

  • 5 of 5

Great flat fully kitted out with everything you need

Only a 15 min walk to the town - downhill - just work out the little cut throughs - ask the gentleman who meets you to point these out

Good places to eat there and the ferry to the lake

Went to Varenna and bellagio

Thank you

Beautiful views, very clean

  • 3 of 5

The apartment is lovely - very new, clean and spacious. The balcony has an incredible view but worth noting that it doesn't get a lot of sun - we were there late August and the sun appeared about 4.30-5pm. The pool is very nice too but again didn't see much sun until later on - quite nice though to escape the heat!

The details of the apartment say it's a 10 minute walk from town which I would say is very ambitious - particularly on the way back up given it's a big hill! Fastest we managed it back up was just under 20 mins.

The apartment had pretty much everything we needed but the bedding was a little tired and the pillows had given up the ghost. Other than that very comfortable, good shower, oven etc

There is no wifi - it doesn't say there is, so it was our fault for assuming, but worth being aware!

Rita (owner) was really lovely in all dealings with her.

Comfortable, clean and with amazing views!

  • 4 of 5

Great value for money. Comfortable bed and pretty sitting room with a little square of garden outside to enjoy a meal or drink, soaking up the magnificent views of the lake and surrounding mountains. Kitchen adequately equipped for simple meals. Great to have air-conditioning, although we lost power when we accidentally switched on the kettle at the same time it was on, despite owner's warning that electrics a bit precarious and subject to overload. Outdoor pool was wonderful - big enough to do lengths and regularly cleaned and maintained. Would recommend hiring a car if you stay here. Twenty minute walk downhill to town centre and 30 mins back up the hill.

Fabulous apartment

  • 5 of 5

Loved our 3 night stay here - the views are STUNNING. The apartment was well stocked with everything we needed and many extras (so often holiday apartments are missing something vital like enough plates or a corkscrew). Even managed to cook a full dinner and the proper coffee machine was a lovely extra touch. Plenty of room for 2 or a small family and lovely to have the garden overlooking the lake. Pool was nice, underground garage was useful too. Some previous guests had left useful info about the area, only extra we could have done with was a map of walking directions to the village centre (tried a few dead ends before finding the right shortcut through alleys between houses). Several choices for restaurants in the village though some were closed mid week, we tried pizzeria Bernina and cavallo bianco both good and did local specialities. Cocktails at the gelato/fruit machine bar next to the ferry port has outdoor seating on the lake and free wifi. Useful supermarket near the lido but be wary it closes early.

If you go to Leggo I'd recommend the cafe in the lakeside park (the eastern end, by the trampolines)- huge salad, tasty pizzas, beautiful views, followed by gelato - found one that sold freshly made chilli chocolate!

Beautiful little apartment in a beautiful town

  • 5 of 5

Our family (myself, my husband and our 2 young boys) stayed here in June 2012 and had a fantastic time, the boys really loved the place. Bellano is such a beautiful picturesque town. The apartment although small was clean, well maintained and practical. The owners were very helpful giving us lots of suggestions of places to visit and eat. The 'housekeeper' was also very welcoming and helpful, picking us up from the station and driving us to the apartment. Although I would go with the owner's advice and hire a car!

A great place to 'get away from it all' for a few days.
