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.
