We drove the "back way" from Milan from the Lecco side up to Bellagio, and though it was not for the faint of heart (winding and narrow road) it was an adventure and unforgettable journey. When we arrived, we were met by Singora Sancassano and her young grand daughter. Our room was in the main part of the B & B (note- this IS a B & B, NOT a luxury/boutique hotel), on the second floor. We came in the day after the Giro di Lombaria, so we missed the festivities, but we were fortunate enough to still get the special rate they were promoting.
The hotel is about a 20-30 minute walk from the main part of town, but they offer a shuttle. From there, the ferry boats go to the equally charming towns across the river. (We went to Lenno).
Only regret is we only stayed 1 night. We will definitely return and recommend this inn to friends and family.
You just cannot beat the view.
