Sunbathing at the Lake

Hi all

my wife and i are thinking of coming to Bellagio for 4 nights and Varenna for 3 nights next year, we also like a wee bit of chill time, ie lie in the sun for a couple of hours, is it possible to do this at the lake ?, are there any sun beds ?

Thanks

Tattieheid

1. Re: Sunbathing at the Lake

In Bellagio you have two options -- either the in-town Lido or the small beach just outside the old town at the hamlet of San Giovanni (also has a great bar/cafe whose menu includes a highly recommended sausage sandwich).

Hi Kat

we are thinking of staying at Hotel Bellagio, I know they have use of a pool which from reading the reviews is a bit of a walk away, somebody actually said it was about 30 mins walk, are your suggestions any closer?

thanks

The Lido is definitely closer than Bellagio Sporting Club's pool, the public beach is just slightly closer than the pool (maybe 15 min. rather than 20 min. -- 30 min. sounds like an estimate from someone who got slightly lost on the way, as it's only about 1.4 km).

Some rooms at the Hotel Metropole have great terraces for sunbathing, would recommend Room 112. They also have a roof terrace.

Hotel Du Lac in Varenna is delightful!

Well done Tattiheid, we are actually ensconced in the Metropole at the mo. Went to Varenna for the morning and a lot quieter, but we are out of season so who knows!

Hotel Du Lac is beautifully positioned at lakefront on the promontory tattieheid, and it is simply delightful.

Two wonderful hotels - Enjoy!
