We stayed at the "The Stairway" in centro Bellagioin the "Above the shops" apartment in Bellagio for 4 nights and one night at the "Alley" in the village of San Giovanni just outside of Bellagio in the apartment "The Loft", and we loved both. Carla and her mother Adriana were extremely kind to my family and myself. Both apartments are very comfortable and very modern. We love the small traditional town feel. The village of San Giovanni just outside town is very quit and family oriented, though not easily walked to from town since you must walk along a narrow buisy road. It didn't bother me, but I believe that it might be a nerve racking trek for most people. The apartment "Above the Shops" are comfortable with many views of the lake and of the church bell tower from the balcony. Our vacation was during Holy Week, so we were able to experience a wonderful mass in San Giovanni, where everyone in the church was warm and welcoming, despite everyone in the village knowing that we were strangers. It did help to communicate with the locals since we do speak Spanish, which is 76% simular to Italian. What a wounderful experience!!!!
