Great apartment in a wonderful location!The location is wonderful and dealing with the property manager was extremely easy with an excellent response time. There is plenty of outside seating, however, we could not take advantage of it because it was raining and everything was wet. There are a lot of stairs so pack lightly! The view of Lake Como is extraordinary so walking up those stairs is worth it! We would have been more comfortable in the apartment if we had been able to sit outside because the living and dining areas are tight for 6 adults. We think the space would be larger and, therefore, easier to get around if the chairs for the dining table were able to fit under the table. We also needed more light, especially in the kitchen area when preparing food in the evening and it would help to change out the bulb in the lamp in the living room to a brighter one. I gave everything 5 stars except for cleanliness. The only reason I gave it 4 stars was because of the garlic smell when you opened the door to the apartment. We discovered that it was coming from one of the wooden cutting boards and we tried to clean it the best that we could. If you do not feel like cooking, La Belligina restaurant is about a 3 minute walk from the apartment and the food, service and view were all excellent. The property manager sent me the link for 2 local grocery stores that where a short distance away when driving. I did not want to have to carry heavy grocery bags back from the grocery stores in town so driving was preferable for us. Parking can be a problem. We were in 3 cars and the property only has space for 1 vehicle. The city of Bellagio had just changed the free parking lot across the street from the apartment to one where you have to pay. We were able to find a free spot in a small parking lot further down the street. Bellagio is a beautiful, enchanting village. If we were to visit again, I would definitely stay at Apartment Belvedere.
