“Great Location and Service with a smile!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2013

It's been a while since I had the pleasure of meeting Michele Gandola! My Girlfriend and I spent a few weeks touring Italy in July of this year. We ended our time in Italy with a week in Pescallo with her family (2 sun lovin' sisters and her folks!).

My top highlight of Italy was definitely Lake Como. And this was due, in great measure, to Michele and Bellagio Water Sports!

I am a North Queensland Aussie by upbringing and I grew up on the water. So it was with great thanks and pleasure that I could experience Lake Como the same way I experienced the lakes, creeks, rivers and oceans of my boyhood... In the seat of a canoe and on the deck of a stand up paddle board!

Bellagio Water Sports' equipment was first rate, well maintained and clean. And the price was definitely right!

However, by far the highlight is Michele's friendly smile, warm service and genuine passion for the water!

Michele, lying on the SUP mid lake surrounded by smooth water, quaint villages, picturesque mountains and peace and quiet is a memory I'll treasure for a long time!! Thanks!!

(Sorry it has taken me so long to write a review on Trip Advisor... Life has unexpectedly passed me by these past months!)

I hope to be back sooner rather than later!

Regards

Justin (& Shaz)

“Discover the shores of the lake from a new angle”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2013

Hello, I just finished 3 days of rowing on the lake of Como, starting from Bellagio on sea shells for safety, it was magic to be there simply. Rowing or kayaking and discover the lake and its surroundings with your own power and from an angle nobody else but you will see. Villas, mountains, parks and beautiful gardens but most of all the real will from Michele to show you his lake and to make you like it ! Be sure I will be back I loved it !

“Kayaking on Lake Como”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2013

I have been to Bellagio many times and always wanted to spend as much time as I could on the water. And finally this year I have been able to go kayaking with my nieces and my 2 year old son. We kind of decided the last minute, as it was a beautiful day, and called Michele to see if he has anything available. We reached him right away and he told us to meet him at the beach in 10 minutes. He was wonderful and very professional and even offered a waterproof bag for my camera as I wanted to take a few pics. He does have one kayak with a seat for toddlers like my son. We went out and it was a wonderful experience to be on the water surrounded by all this beauty. I will definitely do that again on my next visit to Bellagio. Grazie Michele

“Beautiful views and a Fantastic Guide !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

After spending the summer Stand-Up-Paddleboarding, I knew I needed to find a beautiful location to continue while on my first vacation to Italy. I was delighted and so excited to find that SUP was offered in Bellagio on Lake Como!
I contacted Mich from Bellagio Watersports (who replied right away) and we arranged a morning to head out on the lake (Best to book your time in advance).
I couldn't have asked for a friendlier guide (Mich!) or a more beautiful setting with perfect sunny weather :)
I highly recommend SUP on Lake Como (It's best if you already have SUP experience).
Bellagio Watersports is a great company to hook up with while visiting the area :)
