  • Claudias father offered us a beautiful and cozy apartment, which was perfectly in shape and exactly like offered in the pictures. He was very kind and welcoming, even though we were more than 2 hours late! The apartment is located right next to a supermarket (extremely helful) and a small bakery (very delicious and cheap). Lago di Como is only about 50meters from the apartment, which has a good view from the living room onto the lake. Although Belano is not the most vivid place around the lake, it is still located close to a number of beautiful and rather touristic areas, such as Varenna.

  • The flat is exactly as it appears in the photos: cozy, charmingly-appointed, spotlessly clean, near the lake. As others have mentioned, the bakery downstairs is delightful. And the incredibly well-stocked kitchen in the flat was a surprise: anything you need for cooking can be found there, which was great. Claudia's father greeted us at the train station, drove us the short way to the flat, and gave us tips on the town. Bellano is a cute little town that lacks some of the splendour (and touristic-orientation) of other Lake Como destinations, so one might wish to bear that in mind when considering this particular rental. But the flat was perfect in every respect for our needs and we would recommend it highly to other potential guests.

  • We stayed in this superb and cozy flat right near Como lake in Bellano for a Christmas week. A nice surprise is that downstairs you can find a bakery (fresh morning bread mmm) and the best supermarket in town. Never had any problems with parking right downstairs. The hosts are great and communication is easy. Every tima they were eager to help with advice. We enjoyed staying in this lovely apartment.
    The town is very calm and peaceful.

  • Claudia's apartment was exactly as portrayed in the photos. Charming, clean and comfortable. As Claudia was away on business, her father met us upon arrival and showed us everything we needed to know about the apartment. Both Claudia (via email) and her father were incredibly helpful. The town of Bellano is very quiet and quaint, but easily accessible from the larger towns on the lake. We spent most of our time outside -- hiking, boating, etc. The apartment was a perfect home base. Highly recommended!

    Carlo picked us up from the train which was very helpful to get oriented.and walked us through the apartment as Claudia was not available -special thanks to you both.
    We look forward to returning and recommending to all our friends wanting to visit Lake Comp.

  • My wife and I had a great holiday at staying in this apartment in Bellano. The town is lovely, very quiet and peaceful and the apartment is in a great location with everything close by, including a supermarket just across the road. It is exactly what we hoped for. We were able to get around even without a car- the train station is a 5 minute walk away and it is on the main train line from Milan. During our stay we were able to venture across the lake to visit other places although you do have to plan your day as the ferries don't come particularly often.

    Claudia was very helpful in giving us travel information and her father met us at the station when we arrived. She kept in touch and was also happy to accommodate our early morning train departure.

    The apartment itself is great, very clean and beautifully furnished. We enjoyed cooking and relaxing there in the evenings. The restaurant at the nearby Lido overlooking the lake does good food and we were able to find free wifi in the town a few minutes walk away. There is also a local market on Thursday mornings with great produce if you are looking for fresh ingredients.

  • Thanks to Claudia and her father Carlo we spent a few wonderful days in Bellano and surrounding. The apartment is in a very good condition, very clean, furnished with style and we couldn't say that we missed anything - all there! Even our chocolate Labrador fell in love with his temporally home, especially with the smell of the bakery next door, the daily swims in the close lake and the hikes in the forests/hills along the coast. We enjoyed our stay very much and can highly recommend the apartment. Thanks a lot.

  • We had a lovely stay in Claudia's apartment in August. All communication with Claudia prior to our stay was good, with her replying promptly to any of our messages. Her father Carlo met us at the apartment to explain everything we needed to know and then left us to enjoy our holiday.

    The apartment is just as the photos show it to be! It is in a brilliant location- close to the lake, supermarket and bakery. It is clean, beautifully furnished and extremely well- equipped. We felt very much at home and comfortable during our stay.

    Whilst on holiday in the area we visited Bellagio, Verenna and Colico. Bellagio is lovely but more 'touristy' than Bellano but is definitely worth a visit. Verenna is delightful with lovely cobbled streets and the most wonderful ice cream. We visited both of these places by the ferry which was extremely crowded and quite expensive. We came back on the train which was cheap and quick and easy to use. Would definitely recommend using the trains and the apartment is walking distance from the train station. The fort at Colico is interesting to visit and has the most wonderful views from the top of it. Colico is a lovely lakeside town with lots of cafes and bars. We enjoyed the beach there where you can watch people windsurfing (or even have a go yourselves which we didn't!).

    Bellano is lovely. Several restaurants and cafes to try! We particularly liked the Spaghetti restaurant which is just along from the ferry terminal.

    Many thanks to Claudia and Carlo for the use of their delightful apartment!

  • Thanks to Claudia and her father Carlo for at perfect stay in Bellano;-) Easy communication before arriving - and Carlo was very helpfull, when we arrived. Claudias flat is nice, cosy, very clean - and perfectly situated in Bellano. Close to the lake, restaurants, bakery, supermarket - and just a short walk from the wonderfull old part of the town. We almost didn't use our car during our stay, the train to Milano also stops in Bellano.
