“Our experience at Casa Lory”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

Our party was a couple with our adult daughter. We appreciated the good space, clothes washer and other kitchen facilities. The information book was very comprehensive, but did not include information on the bus timetable or where to buy tickets, which must be purchased in advance.

Because we were in the rear attic apartment we had no view towards lake and mountains. Could get a glimpse of these by lying on the floor to see out the low window.
It was impossible to stand under the shower because of the sloping ceiling.

As we were using public transport we were disappointed that the ferry service from San Giovanni does not seem to operate now. The 2km walk to Bellagio along the main road without footpaths in many places was not for the faint hearted. However our hostess picked us up from the bus stop and delivered us to Bellagio to catch the bus back to Como.

The apartment was excellent. It is in a nice village outside of Bellagio. If you want to spend time in Bellagio in the evening then this may not be the ideal location, as transport in the evening is limited. However, there are a number of good local restaurants and a beach bar near-by. The ferry to other locations on the lake also goes from the village (San Giovanni).
The apartment is well furnished, had a view of the lake and has plenty of garden space to relax in.

The place is very nice and clean. The owner, RIccardo, was very friendly, helpful and accommodating. He even interrupted his dinner to drive and show us where to go. Even book us for the perfect fine dining. Their service is better than those 5 star hotels. I will definite use their services again.

Excellent facilities for a family of 4, washing machine and dish washer were a bonus. Plenty of room for kids to relax after a busy day of sight seeing. 10 min walk to town (Bellagio). Excellent guest guide and very helpful & friendly staff. Off street parking. Secure.

We stayed at casa lory on our trip to Bellagio. We had no reservations and booked this place last minute. It probably wouldn't be my first pick but it wasn't horrible. We stayed in the one bedroom apt on the middle floor. Our apt was spacious with lots of windows and view of the lake. The owners were very nice when we spoke to them. I do remember that there was no sheet on the bed and only a comforter so I don't know if they forgot to add the top sheet. That sort of grossed me out because I doubt that they had washed the comforter. We didn't have a car so we walked into Bellagio every day which being an active couple we didn't mind burning the extra calories. If you have children, no car or mind walking then you may want to consider another place. It wasn't horrible and if your budget is limited this would be a good choice. If you book online and last minute and plan to arrive late make sure you have made arrangements to get into te place. We arrived very late and tried to call a number that another renter gave us but would not let us in thru the gate, understandably. We should have made contact prior to arriving to arrange meeting so that was partly our fault.

Thank you for your review! Normally we send an email to customers with various information and a map on how to reach us, as you have already said for last minute booking may happen that there is no time to post or read this mail, I apologize for that! As for the bed I want to clarify that in all our apartments we use "Full comforter" so: sheet, pillowcases and duvet cover, instead of the classic quilt that can not be washed every guest change. In this way everything is washed at each change ensuring a greater hygiene. I am very sorry that you have thought the opposite!

We stayed in Casa Lory A, the ground floor apartment. Our family of 5 stayed here for 10 days in September 2012. Mum, dad, 12, 8 and 4. The first thing to say is that the buildings are very nice. I cannot und stand how people could think this accommodation is overpriced. The flat is very spacious and has exclusive access to a quite sizable garden. We had lovely September weather and the children enjoyed playing in the garden when we weren't out exploring. The location has also been subject to some criticism by others. The village of San Giovanni, which has two nice restaurants, is literally 3 minutes walk away. The walk to the main centre can be done through lovely gardens. A pass for 3 days costs 9euro. It's lovely. Other walks into town take 20-30 minutes, and if we can do this with a 4 year old, I am not sure why others thought they were isolated. It's true you must walk on the road for short distances, but after an initial culture shock (we are Australians) we got used to this. The kitchen is well equipped, but be aware there is no tea, coffee etc. you must shop immediately! The owner was very helpful to us when we requested extra bedding. All round, a memorable stay, and we would stay again.

Thanks for writing this review! The criticism of our position I think they are due to the narrow road even if it is only 50 m long, fortunately the town of Bellagio plans to fix it (although unfortunately we did not have a date) at least partially extending it!
