Il Vicolo
Reviewed August 25, 2012

We have stayed there for 2 weeks in August 2012.
The Italian modern apartment was very clean and comfortable wiith a nice romantic terrace where you can eat the breakfast. It was equipped with everything we needed, like microwave, dishwasher, air-conditioning, fridge etc..The staffs were really friendly and helpful. When we needed something, they did their best to help us.

San Giovanni is a nice quiet village, outside of the touristic centre of Bellagio, but not far away. It is an ideal place to relax and to spend the quiet vacation less touristy.
To us, it was perfect! We just loved it there!

There is beautiful Villa Melzi in just walking distance where you can have a romantic stroll.
We enjoyed going to a local restaurant in front of the ferry where they served us the freshly caught fish from the lake.

If you don't have a car, you can take a mini-train or ferry to go to the centre of Bellagio quite easily. The mini-train operates very frequently until the early evening. You can find the stop just 2 minutes walk from the apartment. The ferry is located in very close distance as well. Taxi costs about 10 Euros from the centre of Bellagio if you miss out the last ferry or mini-train at night. If you want to spend a day in the city Como, there is a bus stop nearby as well.

Spent 3 nights at Il Vicolo while visiting the Lake Como area. This is neither a hotel nor a guest house.It is a self catering apartment. The 1st floor apartment was spacious, clean, modern and had almost everything one needed but the room is not serviced and apart from one roll of toilet paper, is not supplied with any amenities. No soap, shampoo dishwashing liquid for the kitchen. The kitchen has all the appliances needed but no sugar or tea or coffee so bring your own. The room does not have a view of the lake and is behind buildings about 50m away from the lake side. The village, although quaint and pretty, is very quiet and only has one restaurant/bar. You need a car or strong legs if you want to get to Bellagio (5 mins by car) to get to restauants, shops and some "life". We enjoyed the stay but would not go back as one does not "feel" the lake from this room.The lack of some small details which necessitated us having to go shopping for soap, shampoo and toilet paper, sugar and coffee, disappoints. If you are looking for a sefl catering apartment nthen you will do well with this but if you are looking for a hotel or guest house experience, do not consider this.

Room Tip: First floor apartment has a large balcony.
