Spectacular views.This is a beautiful property, and the photos and description are absolutely accurate. It clearly deserves a 5 star rating. All three bedrooms have modern air conditioning units that work well – essential in the recent hot and humid conditions. The master bedroom and en-suite are lovely. Excellent quality bed linen but a very firm mattress (like every other mattress in Italy in my experience). The other two bedrooms only have windows into a covered light well and the largest bedroom is a basement room which some could find claustrophobic although it does have a separate entrance and is therefore very private. There is quite a steep climb of 50 steps from the car park, which is the price to pay for the stunning location! We were a group of four adults and the apartment was a perfect size for us. Very well equipped kitchen including pantry essentials. There is a pizza restaurant and fruit and veg shop nearby for supplies, and a good supermarket a short drive away down a turning off the road away from Bellagio town, but well hidden! We had a car, which we thought would be surplus to requirements, but turned out to be essential for supermarket trips. Bellagio town is a ten minute walk away, with many restaurants and the ferry terminals, but we also enjoyed the Terrace restaurant at the Belvedere Hotel which is near the apartment. A trip on the lake in Carlo’s yacht is also a must-do.
