Reviewed October 21, 2012

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!

Big Disappointment !! After 1 night stay we had to cancel our booking and find another hotel for the rest of our stay for the following reasons:
-Very narrow driveway to the area - almost impossible to get in with a normal family car size (we have VW Passat ) without damaging your car .
-Bath (in Attic/BULK apartment) -only for small children .adults cannot stand only sit ,which is very uncomfortable.
-3rd floor without an elevator which makes it hard to bring up/down the family baggage in high temperatures.there is no help from the owner what so ever .
-No real swimming options : the nearest lake 'beach' is in reality a fishing port .
-Living-room : there were stains on the carpet and the holes in the sofa cover .
When we left the owner started arguing with us and was very impolite. shame.

I state that I'very sorry for your disappointment, and I hope that continuing your holiday will be better!
Just to be honest for other guest that read your critical: the road is very narrow but with attention (the first time) all my guests drive inside without problem (it is narrow for 50 metres, then there is a big square). This is a public road and we hope it changes in the future!
All the carpets are new ( it was not dirty, was burned with incense, so we changed all few weeks ago).
You can choose the apartment before booking, buck is an attic with mansard roof apartment, 2 nd floor, with bathtube not shower.
The beach is 400 metres far, with stones, restaurant, bar, possibility to rent sunbeds, a very good place to swim. The harbour is just 200 m far from casa lory! In the apartment there is maps for guest with all the information.
Thanks for your review.

we booked a one bedroom apartment and were very happy with it. It was very clean, modern and big. The apartment was on the first floor - there are 3 floors and 5 apts. Plenty of windows to take in the beautiful views. We arrived from milan - took the train to como san giovanni and then a bus to san giovanni bellagio. The owner met us at the bus stop and drove us to the apt. It is true that these apts are a distance from bellagio, but that was exactly why we chose them. Bellagio is a tourist town and the tour groups pour in. Casa lory is in a lovely quiet area surrounded by lovely homes and gardens. There are a couple of restaurants - the closest being near the boat pier. If you want to go to bellagio, then you can catch the boat for 1.30 euros one way or you can walk through the beautiful gardens of villa meltzi for 6 euros return. We caught the boat one time, then walked another time. There are so many nice towns to visit, you will never be short of places to go. There is also a beach at san giovanni which is popular with local young people who enjoy playing soccer and swimming out to the pontoon.

We stayed at Casa Lory in January 2012 for a weekend.

The location is slightly far from Bellagio, to be honest not within walking distance.

The apartment we had was hughe and fully furbished and nicely decorated. Kitchen fully equipped with washing machine and dishwasher. Bathroom is also large with bathtub and separate shower. Also there is a parking under the building.

Francesca (owner) was extremely nice with all we needed. Be aware that they do not accept credit cards. If you have a car and do not mind moving for breakfast is perfect.

We stayed here for 5 days in the fog apartment as a couple with a dog.
The apartment is large and the garden is beautifull! We liked it a lot.
The kitchen had everything we needed incl dishwasher and washing machine. The bedroom is large and spacious with a narrow walking closet.
The bed was good and there were also extra blankets when needed.
From the house it's a short walk to Bellagio only when you walk through the garden from villa Melzi.( 6 euro p.p) When you choose not to walk via the Melzi garden bear in mind that there are not always streetsides along the way and walking there can be dangerous (traffic).
So it's simple,walk through the garden of villa Melzi or use the car.
If you're early you can park your car for free on the hill of Bellagio.(marked with white lines on the road). Bellagio is a lovely Italian town and deserves it's name as pearl of the lake.
The road to the apartment I had to say is small...horn the car before you enter because if their is another car oncoming ..one has to go backwards! The owner was very friendly and spoke good English. We recomment this address to our friends
