The space

Stunning escapism!

Boasting a lake view setting on the Bellano hillside, this exclusive 2 bed residence offers a tranquil year round haven, within an easy drive of Varenna.

The contemporary property oozes chic style and luxury home comfort throughout. Breathtaking lake views can easily be savoured from the bright and open living area, for a spectacular back drop in all seasons.

With a double set of French doors leading directly out to the lake view garden, the property is perfectly suited for relaxed summertime getaways. The living area is beautifully furnished with a contemporary sofa suite and chic modern touches. Guests can easily enjoy preparing tasty homemade meals to the accompanying kitchen diner. Fully-equipped with all the must-have mod cons, guests can sit back and enjoy the freedom of a carefree self-catering stay.

The sleeping accommodation offers versatile arrangements to suit honeymooners, groups and families of 4. A spacious master suite offers a serene and stylish haven in which to unwind. A luxury en-suite shower room and direct access out to a sunny private terrace perfectly complements the room.

The second bedroom is equally stylish and comprises a twin set of single beds; for a welcome touch of flexibility for family and friends. A luxury fitted shower room is situated close to the second bedroom, for added convenience.

Outside a private outdoor lake view terrace offers an idyllic venue in which to host unforgettable dinner parties. The picturesque scene was simply made for entertaining, with the terrace complemented by a chic outdoor lounge area to the lawn. With far reaching views from its hillside setting across the townscape of Bellano and the striking lake, guests can easily unwind here with lake view aperitifs at sun set.

The residence also leads to a fabulous shared outdoor swimming pool. Enjoying an equally sunny aspect and lake views to serve as the ideal backdrop, the pool area offers the perfect excuse to relax for the day!

Please note that a pylon can be seen from the property, although this of course does not interrupt with the overall ‘wow’ factor of the lake and mountain views.

From the peaceful hillside setting, guests are within an easy drive of the modern amenities, water sport facilities and Lecco-Milan train links of Bellano. The vibrant lakefront town also offers easy access to the famous resort town of Varenna, just a 7 minute drive away.

Varenna offers a picture-perfect setting from which to enjoy a morning coffee, a relaxed lake side lunch or an evening of ‘aperitivos’ and wine tasting. With ancient pastel coloured houses huddled along medieval piazzas and steep cobbled lake view streets, the town is a labyrinth of historical intrigue and timeless romance.

The resort town is also home to the Castello Vezio and Villa Monastero attractions, as well as a car and passenger ferry service to Bellagio, Cadenabbia and Menaggio.

A central lake holiday here offers the chance to enjoy lake swimming, sailing, water sports, boat hire, hiking, treetop climbing, extreme outdoor sports, spa days, Italian Alp skiing and cultural days out to the villas and nearby cities of Como, Milan and Lugano.

The apartment is a modern, well equiped and perfect sized for us (2 adults +2 kids) with a superb view of the lake. It is located in a larger complex of around 10 more units. There is a very nice pool that when we arrived was unusable due to the cold water but at some point of the stay I believe they started heating it. There is also covered parking about 50-75 meters downhill, but be mindful that it is very steep so some people with physical impediments may find it very difficult if not impossible to use it. There is internet but it is very spotty but good enough for checking emails and reading the news (forget about Netflix). There is also a TV and DVD (with a collection of old movies) but the cable channels were all in German. The complex is located about 2 km uphill from Bellano so you will need a car for sure. The town is pretty but it is not very touristy (which for us was great). You can park in the Lido (next to the lake) and take the boats to visit the other towns. Finally I have not met Daniel but it is good to note that he work with a team of people who may work in the same property managemet company and they always responded almost immediately.

The apartment was very nice with a view that is unmatched. We very much appreciated the bottle of prosecco! However, for the price, the apartment lacked some common comforts such as soap and a quality wifi connection. Be sure to use the driving instructions on the welcome packet once you get into town as the address will lead you to a wrong spot if you're using a gps! Overall we had a nice stay in Bellano.

Response from Daniel:
Hi Max, thanks again for coming to stay! Yes we do recommend our guests to use the printed copy of their arrival instructions to reach the property, because it is a newly-built residence and road, so it yet to be fully synced to most maps and Gps systems. We are glad you enjoyed the views! Apologies if you experienced any disturbance with the WIFI. Sometimes a storm or the hillside terrain can effect a device (particularly if it is not installed house WIFI but is a rental device). Thank you for your thorough and honest review! We hope to see you again on beautiful Lake Como! Best wishes, Tamara

We didn't meet the host and it was a bit challenging to find the house since it is high on the mountain, although he sent us a file with all the information, but it is easier if there is an address we could put on our GPS. Other then that the check in was very easy, the key was in a box next to the door with a passcode on it. the view was fantastic. The village was quite and peaceful. The facilities wasn't ready for use, the pool was a bit dirty and the chairs next to the pool were flipped all around the place by the wind i guess, even the terrace didn't has pillows in it. The apartment was nice with a great view. We had a difficulty closing one of the windows door when we opened i guess it was pre broken when we arrived. The overall experience was great but it would be even better if the host avoid the above notes.

The villa was really as expected : superb view on the lake, great facility inside the vila, enjoyable swimming pool at the bottom of the villa. Also Bellano is a lovely place to explore the rest of the lake - from the pier, you can easily reach Varena, Bellagio and the West shore of the lake. Highly recommended place !
