A perfect apartment in a perfect location.
The apartment is the ground floor of a large family house with a large bedroom, separate bathroom and an open sitting/dining area/kitchen. The kitchen is fully equipped with new appliances and cupboards and all is well maintained and clean.
There is a terrace outside with views across the Lecco arm of the lake to the mountains behind. The grounds are impeccably maintained by Danielle, one of the hosts and have olive trees as well as herbs , hydrangeas and other plants.
The apartment is a little outside of the main area of Bellagio, on a hill behind the town, so there are wonderful views along the lake from a bench above the house, right next to the chicken coop! We walked in to Bellagio in 20 minutes or so, but also walked to San Giovanne for coffee and croisants and Loppia, which gives access to one end of the Melzi gardens. There is a small shop and a pastry shop in the town a few steps from the apartment. A very quiet and peaceful location.
The hosts, Valentina and Daniele could not be more pleasant and they, and their family, were very welcoming. Could not do enough for us. Would not hesitate to recommend this apartment.
Antico Uliveto is a great place to stay in Bellagio. The property is in an Olive Grove on a hill above the town. The Agnelli family are great hosts who made us very welcome and kindly gave us some gifts of food, including some of their own Extra Virgin Olive Oil, fruit from the garden and fresh eggs from their own chickens. Bellagio is a pleasant 20 minute walk but when the weather is hot, I'd recommend the bus back (the Lecco bus stops in Visgnola), a few minutes from the property. The views to the lake are amazing and can be enjoyed sitting on the terrace
Absolutely one of the most wonderful places we have ever stayed. Everything perfect! The views of Lake Como from our apartment were breathtaking.
We stayed in here for 6 nights at the start of our trip through Italy. Valentina and her brother were very kind and welcoming, dropping in to deliver us unexpected gifts of fresh fruit and pastries throughout our stay.
The apartment is well located, about a 20-30min walk from Bellagio town centre, or a short 5min drive if you leave early enough to find a park. Don't wait until lunchtime to attempt this as they will all be taken.
The apartment overlooks a small herb garden with a view across the lake and is above a little olive grove that you are free to walk down and explore. There are chairs and a table in the garden which is the perfect spot for a relaxing afternoon coffee.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and will be recommending it to any family and friends visiting this part of Italy.
We stayed 8 days, and enjoyed every moment. Communication was excellent, and made for a stress free holiday. The location is beautiful, with awe inspiring views. The apartment is clean, and well equipped. Valentina and Daniele were perfect hosts. We especially loved the wine cellar, fresh morning figs and Mama's cake. It is close by a bakery, and bar for coffee. There is also a village grocery. Overall, the best vacation rental we have ever had.
We stayed here for 4 nights and it felt like home. The home owners were amazing and very gracious. The views were beautiful and we were able to make dinner and enjoy it on the patio. There is a market and bakery that are very close. We did not have a car so we walked into town and back. There is a tourist train that we used one of the days to get us close to our house. I really liked that we did not stay right in town. It was quiet, the views incredible. We were able to relax and enjoy our time. This is a great place to stay.
This property is perfect! It is set in beautiful grounds with the most amazing view over Lake Como.It is quite a climb up from the centre of Bellagio but this little area is almost a village in itself with a bakery,mini market & nearby trattorias. Inside the property it is very clean,beautifully maintained with lots provided.The family live within the same grounds & they are delightful-very friendly & helpful & luckily for us,speak excellent English!We had a lovely,relaxing week & I can highly recommend this villa as a holiday destination.
