Pescallo Apartments
Reviewed July 15, 2014

We felt very lucky to have found this gorgeous modern apartment on Lake Como. It made for a fun and relaxing three night stay in Bellagio. We probably spent too much time in the apartment and not enough time exploring, but with such a terrific view, it was hard to leave.
The location is in Pescallo , a quiet neighborhood of Bellagio. The former fishing village has no shops and maybe one restaurant. It is very quaint, with a residential feel to it. The walk to the main part of Bellagio takes 20 minutes. There you can find cute shops, restaurants and stores selling homemade pasta, cheese, fresh vegetables, meat, etc. The first day of the trip we drove to the nearby coop to stock up on water and staples, but we found the in town stores had better quality products. As the walk is steep we were careful not to be carrying too many heavy items.
Cooking in the simple kitchen (we stayed in the two bedroom unit) was fun. There is everything you need to prepare a good meal. We enjoyed dining at the modern wood table or snacking on the tiny balcony.
There is plenty of room to relax in the living area. The wifi/internet was fine for checking e-mail, but too slow for streaming movies. There was no air-conditioning downstairs, but despite the high temperatures, it remained very comfortable with plenty of windows and french doors to open.
Upstairs the master bedroom had a nice view of the lake and thankfully had air. The ceilings are low in part of the room making it a bit awkward to get to your luggage. The sheets were linen, not my favorite, but were of good quality.
There are two small, stylish modern bathrooms. With the exception of the barbie doll sized hair dryers (cute but useless for long hair), they were fine and even had skylights.
Each day there was cleaning service. They did a good job keeping the place spotless. Although there was no washer or dry, they offered very affordable basic laundry service. Parking was free and on a nearby square. When that was full we found a place nearby on the road.
One day we rented a motor boat. You must call ahead to reserve it and it was delivered to a dock about a half a block from the apartment. What a fun afternoon! It is unbelievable seeing the amazing homes and gardens from the water.

We stayed for a family trip during the Easter weekend. Light modern rooms and well equipped kitchen. The view from the master bedroom was incredible. The other 2 rooms we had were very small but fine for a weekend and the lounge space more than made up for this.

We had some issues with the dishwasher but the owner was there very quickly and tried to sort things out as soon as he could.

A really relaxing stay. The wine and water in the fridge was a nice touch.

The walk up to get our shopping every morning was demanding but beautiful. We walked (about 20 mins) to the bigger supermarket to get our shopping and then took a taxi back. However we found the butchers in the main town to have more choice.

Pescallo apartments are just lovely and the views are spectacular! Friendly welcome from Pietro and we really enjoyed our time there this Easter week, Lake Como and Bellagio is stunning!

A couple of thoughts which would make this an even better experience in future:-

1. Just a little more in terms of the provided and advertised grocery pack would be great. Some milk and bread would have been good. 4 bottles of water and a bottle of wine meant we needed to get to a shop pretty much straight away.

2. For an apartment like this, a iron would be useful. There is a district lack of plug sockets in the lounge area, with one's in the floor under the sofa, which are very hard to get to.

Other than this, I would recommend Pescallo, but don't try and walk with large cases from Bellagio, get a taxi, which costs €10, as the cobbled hill will kill all but the fittest!

Beautiful apartment. We took no 1 as a couple. Although it is 2 bedroomed/bathrooms, I would say any more people would be a little cramped (although perhaps that is a reflection on Anna's requirement for a dressing room). Pietro is friendly, organised and helpful and lives downstairs. Perfect location. The photos you see on the net give the impression it is idyllic and they don't do it justice. Good value too. Why would anyone stay in a hotel?

Room Tip: No 1 for a couple and keep your stuff in the 2nd bedroom to keep the clutter down

We loved the design and decor of this beautiful two bedroom apartment. The amazing view of the lake, it was so peaceful and relaxing we can't wait to return! Our warm welcome and the great helpful information that Pietro gave us when we arrived made everything so easy. We travelled with our 3 children who also fell in love with Bellagio. Thank you Pietro for sharing your beautiful Pescallo apartment with us.

We were from the outset in awe of the stylish design and decor of this beautiful two bedroom apartment. The setting on the lake, the balcony and the few steps to the lake side made it even more special! Our warm welcome and the great communication with Pietro beforehand also just added to the huge list of positives!
