“Excellent Accommodation and Location”

person found this review helpful

We stayed at Borgo Antico for 5 nights recently and were so pleased we chose it as everything was excellent.It was spotlessly clean, well equipped and secure and quiet.It's in a lovely central location and so convenient to the the wonderful shops, restaurants and the beautiful town of Bellagio. The apartment is very spacious but also cosy, perfect for a family stay.It has a private courtyard for outside dining on warmer days. Domenico and Antonella are lovely people, they are helpful, sincere and so easy to deal with.Check-in and check-out were seamless. We will definitely return to Antico Borgo next time we visit Bellagio.

Alice with her husband and their lovely daughters were guests educated, funny, cute and punctual. They left everything in order and comply with the rules of the house. We are obviously very happy to host them again in the future if they wish to return to Bellagio. At Alice and her family wish you happy moments and to them we give our best regards.

Family Boleso.

“Roomy apartment in the town center”
Reviewed July 22, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

person found this review helpful

We loved our stay here -a very roomy, clean and well-equipped home away from home. Antonella was very friendly and helpful; she picked us up from the ferry, drove us up the short distance to the apartment, and made sure that we had everything we needed. The apartment was in a great location - right on the main street of the town center - so was convenient to everything in town. We would definitely recommend it to other travellers.

“Great quiet rental in the center of everything!”

Very conveniently located in the heart of Bellagio. Quiet and clean. Great hosts/owners helped us immensely with parking as we arrived on a very busy holiday. Nice sitting area outside of apartment.

“great apt & location!”
Reviewed May 10, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

I stayed with my family at Borgo Antico apartment for a few days. This was in an excellent location; very safe. Communicating with the owner was very easy. The apt was exceptionally clean!! We enjoyed our stay and would most definitely stay here again if traveling to the same area. Very reasonable pricing.

“Location was great!”
Reviewed September 22, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Great location in the heart of the central city. Traveled as two adult couples so one couple was on twin beds. Very clean.
Lots of stairs from the ferry to be pulling luggage.

“Comfortable, value for money apartment in centre of Lake Como”
Reviewed August 15, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

people found this review helpful

We endorse most of the benefits of this apartment made by other reviewers - it is very clean and comfortable, and generally well equipped although cooking utensils included only 2 blunt knives and 1 wooden spoon - maybe bring your own knife and spatula! It's good value for money. Bath and swimming towels (upon request) were provided which was great. Antonella was lovely though we got no help with our luggage and the location is at the top of a steep hill served by steps or a longer route up by road - so get a taxi up. The lake and nearby sights are wonderful and a ferry pass provided a great way to see everything locally with minimal hassle and a lovely cool breeze on deck.

A big problem for us though was the noisy location of this apartment on one of the few streets in Bellagio that permits cars - the bedrooms are on this main shopping street and traffic and loud noise from inconsiderate holidaymakers talking disturbed us on and off throughout the night, even with earplugs. Shutting the double glazed windows helped considerably but made the apartment stifling hot and thus it was difficult to sleep. Our first two nights were extremely hot and humid so we were very uncomfortable. If you are sensitive to noise this is not a good apartment for you!

Moreover walking down the narrow street to the very conveniently located shops and church/square offers no pavement and means stepping aside to avoid cars /vans passing every minute or two, a truly unpleasant experience (and which would be a nightmare with young children). Finally, there are only 3 food shops in the whole town - 1 deli, 1 deli/general store and a greengrocer (no bakery though one shop sells a limited range of bread) and they are all very expensive so be prepared to spend quite a bit if you are self catering - or eating out. Bellagio is an upmarket, very touristy place. We were charged 8 euros for a pot of tea for 2 at one restaurant on the front.

That said, it's a great base for exploring the region with its villas, gardens, lakeside views, lidos, watersports, castles, churches etc all very nearby. Walk down to Pescello (another steep hill, sorry!) for a quieter place and where you can rent kayaks in the serene bay - lovely. There are excellent (hilly) walks around nearby villages too. Renting a speedboat for a couple of hours (from Menaggio / Lenno) is fabulous fun.
