“could not wait to leave”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2012

Big Disappointment !! After 1 night stay we had to cancel our booking and find another hotel for the rest of our stay for the following reasons:
-Very narrow driveway to the area - almost impossible to get in with a normal family car size (we have VW Passat ) without damaging your car .
-Bath (in Attic/BULK apartment) -only for small children .adults cannot stand only sit ,which is very uncomfortable.
-3rd floor without an elevator which makes it hard to bring up/down the family baggage in high temperatures.there is no help from the owner what so ever .
-No real swimming options : the nearest lake 'beach' is in reality a fishing port .
-Living-room : there were stains on the carpet and the holes in the sofa cover .
When we left the owner started arguing with us and was very impolite. shame.

I state that I'very sorry for your disappointment, and I hope that continuing your holiday will be better!
Just to be honest for other guest that read your critical: the road is very narrow but with attention (the first time) all my guests drive inside without problem (it is narrow for 50 metres, then there is a big square). This is a public road and we hope it changes in the future!
All the carpets are new ( it was not dirty, was burned with incense, so we changed all few weeks ago).
You can choose the apartment before booking, buck is an attic with mansard roof apartment, 2 nd floor, with bathtube not shower.
The beach is 400 metres far, with stones, restaurant, bar, possibility to rent sunbeds, a very good place to swim. The harbour is just 200 m far from casa lory! In the apartment there is maps for guest with all the information.
Thanks for your review.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2012

we booked a one bedroom apartment and were very happy with it. It was very clean, modern and big. The apartment was on the first floor - there are 3 floors and 5 apts. Plenty of windows to take in the beautiful views. We arrived from milan - took the train to como san giovanni and then a bus to san giovanni bellagio. The owner met us at the bus stop and drove us to the apt. It is true that these apts are a distance from bellagio, but that was exactly why we chose them. Bellagio is a tourist town and the tour groups pour in. Casa lory is in a lovely quiet area surrounded by lovely homes and gardens. There are a couple of restaurants - the closest being near the boat pier. If you want to go to bellagio, then you can catch the boat for 1.30 euros one way or you can walk through the beautiful gardens of villa meltzi for 6 euros return. We caught the boat one time, then walked another time. There are so many nice towns to visit, you will never be short of places to go. There is also a beach at san giovanni which is popular with local young people who enjoy playing soccer and swimming out to the pontoon.

We stayed at Casa Lory in January 2012 for a weekend.

The location is slightly far from Bellagio, to be honest not within walking distance.

The apartment we had was hughe and fully furbished and nicely decorated. Kitchen fully equipped with washing machine and dishwasher. Bathroom is also large with bathtub and separate shower. Also there is a parking under the building.

Francesca (owner) was extremely nice with all we needed. Be aware that they do not accept credit cards. If you have a car and do not mind moving for breakfast is perfect.

We stayed here for 5 days in the fog apartment as a couple with a dog.
The apartment is large and the garden is beautifull! We liked it a lot.
The kitchen had everything we needed incl dishwasher and washing machine. The bedroom is large and spacious with a narrow walking closet.
The bed was good and there were also extra blankets when needed.
From the house it's a short walk to Bellagio only when you walk through the garden from villa Melzi.( 6 euro p.p) When you choose not to walk via the Melzi garden bear in mind that there are not always streetsides along the way and walking there can be dangerous (traffic).
So it's simple,walk through the garden of villa Melzi or use the car.
If you're early you can park your car for free on the hill of Bellagio.(marked with white lines on the road). Bellagio is a lovely Italian town and deserves it's name as pearl of the lake.
The road to the apartment I had to say is small...horn the car before you enter because if their is another car oncoming ..one has to go backwards! The owner was very friendly and spoke good English. We recomment this address to our friends

Nice location close to Como lake, but a couple of kilometers from Bellagio. There is a small train to the city, but the fare plan is Italien - you can not trust it. So we had some walking and taxi driving.
The appartment is a part of a haus located in a very quietly neighbourhood. Very nice garden and a garage for the cars.
We can recommend the place.

A very recommendable accommodation – perfect for families with young children; nice and modern apartments in the village of San Giovanni
Just a few minutes walk to the harbour of the village and to a playground
