Ho trascorso 5 giorni di pace in una Bellano invernale.
La casa è esattamente bella come si vede dalle fotografie.
Calda, accogliente, silenziosa e dotata di ogni comfort. I proprietari gentilissimi e attenti ad ogni più piccolo dettaglio.
Veramente bellissima esperienza!
We have just arrived back from an amazing trip to the Lake Como area. We chose to stay at Claudia's lovely apartment in Bellano and our experience there was lovely. The apartment is charming and comfortable. There is a supermarket literally across the street which we found comfortable. We enjoyed being able to easily buy groceries and the apartment was stocked with everything we needed to enjoy some meals at home. Since I was jetlagged and fighting a cold, I got to enjoy a relaxing day at the apartment surrounded by Italian television, DVD player, books, and a great ceiling window to gaze at the clouds while resting on the couch in the living room.
Bellano is not touristy at all. It provides visitors with an authentic experience. However as such, the ferry boats randomly do not stop there during low season. If you are planning on traveling a lot to nearby towns, it might get a little difficult and the trains in Italy are notorious for being unreliable. We experienced a day where no ferry was leaving Bellano and the trains were not running because of a worker's strike. So we resorted to taking a taxi to the nearest town and spent a lovely day there.
From the start of my correspondence with Claudia, she was clear, reliable and helpful in her communications. She answered all questions honestly and promptly. She offered to have her father, a lovely man named Carlo, pick us up from the airport for a very fair price. This was such perk after such a long flight. I got to practice my beginners Italian with him while he took the time to show us where to find everything we need (e.g. the train station and the ferry dock) and provided us with recommendations such as good restaurants to try (I had the best pasta with mushrooms at the Lido literally around the corner from the apartment). Carlo went above and beyond with his help. When we arrived at Malpensa airport in Milan, we need to get a SIM card for our cell phone and since Italians know how to live, the store was closed during the afternoon hour we arrived. Carlo stopped at several towns along the way to make sure we got a cell phone working properly before we got to Bellano, a small town that does not have the store we needed. Throughout our time at the apartment, Claudia checked in frequently to make sure we were comfortable. When I struggled to turn the heat on, Claudia was on the phone with me while (website hidden)ing with her father in order to sort everything out as quickly as possible and get me warm! Overall, we found Claudia and Carlo to be warm, welcoming and helpful people and they made our experience in their lovely apartment remarkable.
Claudia and her father were gracious hosts. The flat was beautiful and had all the amenities we could possibly need. We had a wonderful stay in Bellano.
We had a wonderful stay at this property. It's a great location for enjoying Lake Como. Bellano is somewhat less touristy than other nearby towns in the central area of Lake Como, so that's a real advantage in feeling the Italian authenticity of the region.
This property is right next to the local bakery and supermarket in town, which is convenient, and only about 50 meters from the water. There's a partial view of the lake from the dining room. In general, there are interesting views from all the property's windows. It's a quiet location, a very clean and efficient property, filled with original art and other items of Italian history and character. We were only 3 people, but the property would have been just as comfortable for 4. Parking was nearby and free. In the off-season the large community lot nearby is free, but we were there in mid-September, and it was free for only half the time. The rest of the week - maybe 100 meters away, no problem.
As it worked out, it was Claudia Cereda's father who orientated us to the property. He was such a sweet and polite individual! Gentle and cultured, just like the property.
The kitchen was wonderful. The fridge is full size, not a mini-fridge, but oddly didn't have a freezer. This was a minor inconvenience, but not too much. Everything you need for cooking is all there!
The master bedroom was a real treat! Not only spacious, but in exquisite aesthetic taste as well. I really liked the art and the furniture! A mixture of old and new.
So to sum up - this property is not just a place to rest one's head after a day of sightseeing - it's an integral part of the vacation. We hiked the Alps in St. Moritz, toured the entire Lake Como region on water and on foot, yet still, some of my fondest memories from this vacation are from evenings in this property, playing travel scrabble in the dining room, and enjoying a beautiful sunset! This isn't a bare bones accommodation. It's really nice!
We had a really great time at Como Lake and at this beautiful apartment!
It´s an excellent place to stay!
We had a lovely time in Bellano, thanks to Claudia! To us it is very important that I feel well in a holiday appartment, even if it is only for one week. Claudias flat met my ideas of living perfectly. Her father Carlo, who managed to give us the keys and explain everything around the appartment, was very nice and took care of our needs and wishes.
Bellano is quiet and offers a few nice restaurants and a small beach. We went to some other beaches nearby, i.e. Colico and Sorico, that were reachable within 20 min by car and spent the sunny days there watching the kite surfers and sailors, lying in the sand and playing with our little son. We also enjoyed Como and Bergamo, both reachable within 1.5 hours.
Après avoir été en contact avec Claudia par email pour préparer notre séjour, c'est son père qui nous a accueilli à notre arrivée et présenté l'appartement qui correspond bien à la description.
L'appartement est situé à côté d'une boulangerie (qui vend également des pâtes fraîches) et d'un supermarché (quelques bruits de livraisons le matin).
Bellano est une petite ville calme (peu touristique) mais avec quelques curiosités à découvrir ainsi que des promenades à faire sur la montagne.
Il est facile de prendre le bateau pour visiter les autres villes (mais pour Côme, mieux vaut prendre la voiture vu la distance).
The apartment was great, everything was as promised in the description. Claudia answered all messages before our stay very quickly. Claudia and her dad were great hosts!
Claudia's appartment is a really nice place to stay. Very comfortable, fully equipped and everything spotlessly clean. The pictures are exactly what it looks like and it is a pleasure to have breakfast, lunch or dinner with a lake view. Claudia's charming father did an excellent job of showing us around and demonstrating in detail what we needed to know. Subsequently we had Claudia on the phone checking whether everyting was fine, and insisting on calling her for whenever we needed to. The perfect host!
Bellano is an quiet little town, unlike the more crowdy places like Bellagio and Como. Perfect for relaxing and the ideal homebase for your stay at Lago Como.
Claudias Apartment is furnished very cozy and sophisticaded and makes us feel very comfortbale and home. The communication was correct and she answers immediately when we had a question. Her father shows us the apartment and explained everything.
We stayed at Bellano for one week in summer 2104 with two teenager and our baby. We had enough place for all of us. The baby had a very cozy and nice baby-bed in our sleeping room.
Bellano is a very wonderful place. The place was great because there is a bakery next to the house and a supermarket in front of the house.
There is also a swimmingpool a few meters from the house wich you can use for a charge. It has a directly view to the see. It was perfect for the girls.
