“Lovely apartment to match our experience in Bellagio”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2013

Our family (two young boys, two adults) had a great stay in Bellagio in one of Flavio's apartments. We were warmly greeted at the ferry and quickly ushered to our central apartment in the main part of the town with generous advice on where to eat (a key factor to weigh with only so much time travelling Italy!). We spent two lovely days in Bellagio, and never felt the need to venture further given the scenery, sights to see in town, and the great food! We would definitely return again and stay here as it is central and is a good location to venture to the other beautiful towns on the lake's shores.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

From the moment we arrived we thought the accomodation was a little walk away only to realise it was a stone throw away from the ferry station, amazing restuarants, wine bars and right next door is an amazing coffee shop which had been visited by George Clooney himself.

We got to our apartments earlier than check in but this was not a problem at all, we were met by Sylvia who was amazingly helpful and friendly. Our apartment was split level with the bedroom up a lovely spiral staircase. We even had a little view of the lake. Room has free wifi.

When we asked about travel and ferries back to Como and Malpensa airport, we were given a printed itinerary of journey and train/ferry times which were perfect.

We highly recommend these apartments and would definitely stay here again.

Things to do: We recommend looking at the brochures in the room and would say everyone should do the 2.5 hour walk of the village, the highlight of this walk is the small fishing village at the bottom of the steps - beautiful! There is a lovely little hotel with seats right on the waters edge.

Our best little water hole was Terrazza Barchetta, we loved sitting on the high chairs looking down the staircase. A glass of wine was 2.50 euro and the staff were friendly.

All in all we had an amazing trip!

Residence il Borgo is located in close proximity of the ferry station on Bellagio. Note that if you arrive on the car ferry, the walk is a bit further, but not significant. While there are stairs to climb to the address, the il Borgo does have a lift. The rooms are well appointed and well maintained. Quiet, good hot shower, and wifi worked well. We stayed two nights here and would stay again. The small reception lobby is not staffed most of the time, so I recommend calling or texting on your arrival.

We are glad we decided to stay in Bellagio rather than Como. Bellagio is more easily reached from Milan by train to Como through Serrono; take the fast ferry from Como to Bellagio. The alternative, taking a train to Varenna and then ferry to Ballagio was less convenient.

3 couples spent 2 nights in 3 different apartments. Silvia met us at the ferry terminal and walked us to the apartments. Comfortable beds, nice bathrooms, great location for enjoying the town. Great recommendations for hiking and eating in town. Wish we stayed longer and would happily return.

As the other reviews have stated, the accomodation was of a good standard and newish. It is well located for convenience and is good value. We were there for 4 days and did not have any cleaning service during that time. I asked for new towels once and they were left for me. We had difficulty with the TV as it was complicated by the need to access a satellite service and there were no written instructions. There is no reception or office as such and a notice tells you when Flavio and Silvia will be available but they did not show up at any of the stated times so we needed to leave notes with our questions.
On the day before check out a receipt for the amount owing was left under our door. They had charged the amount to our credit card (I left the number to secure the booking) without our approval. As it happened I did not wish to use that card so it was very disappointing. Maybe it's the end of the season but I got the feeling Flavio and Silvia had already signed off for the year.

We took the top two apartments in September as we had come over for our daughter's wedding. The apartment was great - living in Singapore we are used to 'small and bijou' so it suited us just fine! Flavio and Silvia were great hosts and the apartments are kept spotless. We had a super stay here and wouldn't hesitate to come back.

Stayed here in September, & really enjoyed our stay. The apartments are clean & quite new.
They are right in the middle of Bellagio so you have pretty much everything at your doorstep.
the bathroom is very good and a good size.
Hosts are very welcoming, and they are well priced.
We even had a bit of a lake view when we looked out the window.
Highly recommended.
