OUTSTANDING! Our 1st trip to Lake Como – and Bellagio was the perfect choice – easy transitions via ferry/car to Mennagio, Varenna, Lugano, etc . BUT – if you drive up from Como, take the western side of the lake up to Cadenabbia, and then the ferry (10 min) across to Bellagio – the eastern side on SS583 is very strenuous – we did it – never again!. Now – apartment Belvedere: it was Stupendous! From the initial booking, Carlo, the owner, was exceptionally communicative and cooperative. He made it very easy to book, confirm, etc. Then his onsite agent, Marzia, also was excellent in welcoming us and guiding us into the apartment. The apartment is lovely – and matches the online information. At the entry level is the kitchen, dining room, and living room – compact, but fully stocked and comfortable for our group of 6. Two bedrooms on this level: 1 with king bed and ensuite bathroom, and the 2nd with king bed and bathroom just outside. The 3rd bedroom is the most spacious and is one level below with a king bed and ensuite bathroom. All rooms were properly stocked and very comfortable. The wifi worked well. There is parking for one car (with a free lot down the hill, if needed) and entry does require climbing 51 steps from the parking lot. The tradeoff with the apartment on a hill is stunning views of the lake and region – a WOW factor. It’s a 10 minute walk to the center of town, so the location is excellent. We were very pleased and highly recommend this rental.
