About Gina Bruna Vaccani
My name is Gina Bruna and I was born in Lezzeno where I live and I work. I'm of average heigh and slim. I have a curly hair. I'm not married so I dedicate my free time to my apartments.

Gina Bruna Vaccani purchased this Apartment in 2006
Why Gina Bruna Vaccani chose Lezzeno
Good price in the 'Orange Apartment', completely renovated in 2006 and supplied carefully. This apartment is located only 06 km from Bellagio, in the centre of Como Lake. There is the private parking in a place where is difficult to find it.
What makes this Apartment unique
The apartment is very near a stony beach, a grocer's, a bar, a bus stop to Bellagio or Como town and a two good restaurants. It is located on the ground floor of my single house with an outdoor space equiped with chairs and table to have meals or relax. It has a private parking nex to the house.

Gina’s apartment was as described and is one of the very few with parking right at the apartment. Gina’s apartment was VERY clean and modern and very well maintained. My husband was very impressed with the woodwork in the apartment which had been done by Gina’s father. Everything in the apartment met our needs for the month. The bed is actually a king, which was a nice surprise. Gina was quickly available for all of our questions and was a wealth of information for the area. We took her advice on where to go and what to see and we were not disappointed! Gina is so special to us and you will never find a more caring host!
The ferry is about a mile from the apartment. The walk is not hateful, but it is on the small road (no sidewalks) and after walking all day (we are in our 70’s) it seemed like a long walk back from the ferry. We were able to find a parking lot just beyond the ferry on the right which was free with no time restriction. We parked there almost everyday to take the ferry to the other lake towns. The bus is also handy. We rented a car and I would strongly suggest a small car - ours was a large suv. The roads are narrow in this part of Italy with a lot mountain curves. The motorcycle drivers are crazy and pass on blind curves. There are also a lot of bicyclists touring in groups. Gina suggested going to Margreglio to the Madonna of Ghisallo to visit the “patron saint of cyclists” which is a very large cyclists museum. (Part of the museum is in a beautiful old church). We enjoyed the museum, but for us the views up the mountain were breath taking. While there we also discovered our favorite restaurant - il Ghisallino. We had several wonderful meals there and the owner and his staff are beyond charming.
There are only a few restaurants right in Lezzeno, all are good, but we especially enjoyed the Aurora. The food and service were excellent and it has a great view of the lake.
I would highly recommend Lezzeno and Gina’s apartment to anyone wishing to see the Lake Como area. The villages around the lake all have their own charm, and all of the people we met in our travels were very helpful and friendly - we fell in love with the Italian people! I think it is clear that we loved our month and would love to return!
A perfect stay in a lovely apartment
For the 4th time we spent our summer holiday in Lezzeno in one of Ginas apartments. The orange apartment is very nice, clean, has everything you need for a wonderful stay and has a perfect location - close to the lake, close to grocery shopping and close to restaurants. It also has a lovely terrace where we spent a lot of time.
Lezzeno is a fine town with good opportunities to visit other parts of the lake - either by boat, or by bus, or by your own car. You find a lot of villas, viewpoints and nice cities around the lake that might be worth a visit.
Gina, her father and her uncle do everything they can to ensure that you have a perfect stay.Gina has several ideas of places that might be interesting to visit, her father and uncle ensure that the outside area is perfect.
We recommend the orange apartment (and also the two other apartments owned by Gina) and we will certainly come back in the future.
A fantastic & very relaxing holiday everybody so friendly & helpful especially Gina
A great location, nice & clean & all the amenities needed. Buses were great on time along with the ferry boats too which was ideal for getting to locations around the lake. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay sampling the local restaurants was fab as were all great food & hosts.
A very nice appartment to stay, hospitable welcome
spacious apartment for 2 persons, comfortable, good bed, friendly owner, beautiful setting
Excellent accommodation. Modern and very very clean.
Let me first start with the landlady, Gina. She is such a lovely friendly lady who offers an excellent service from beginning to end.
Very knowledgeable of the area so make sure you take note of the information she offers you for the surrounding area.
The accommodation we had was on the ground floor so don't expect to get a lake view from your window or the patio. But the private patio is prepared for you daily. Furniture are taken in at night if it's raining but when you're up your patio furniture is out.
Gina offers other apartments in the same building which have balconies and with higher views.
I have to say, for the price we paid, it was perfect. And if you want a lake view, well it's literally a 2 minute walk to the lake side.
The grocery store is virtually outside your door and there's a typical Italian local bar next to it.
Bellagio is a 10 or 15 minutes drive.
There's a lot to see and do and if you're into walking also, you won't be disappointed.
Going back to Gina, if we go to lake Como again, which I'm sure we will, I'll be going back to stay in one of Gina's apartments.
Well equipped and modern apartment in Lezzeno.
Arrived at apartment to be greeted by Gina. After being shown the apartment Gina continued to explain the local areas of interest, places to eat and the public transport system. Perfect start to holiday. The neighbouring town of Bellagio was very easy to get to using either public transport (bus or boat) or by car. Bellagio with its cobbled lanes, fascinating buildings and shops was great. The whole area of lake Como has many well marked out walks (look out for the red and white stripes). Managed to do a few of these in Lezzeno and Bellagio which was a great way to see the stunning scenery. There is so many grand buildings and gardens in the area, Villa Carlotta and Villa del Balbianello both very easy to get to by boat and a great day out. Would definitely recommend Lezzeno as a good location, The apartment as good accommodation at a reasonable price and of course not forgetting Gina who made us feel very welcome. It was also reassuring that Gina was close by to assist us if needed.
The apartment is located in Lezzeno on the ground floor, a cute little village on Lake Como with little paths and surrounded by ancient small yet charming houses. It is only 6 km from Bellagio, the most famous tourist village in the centre of Lake Como. Bellagio is well know in the world for its beautiful location, situated between the green of the mountains and the blue of the lake and surrounded by spacious blossoming gardens. It is also possible to catch a ferryboat which can take you on trips throughout the lake. The apartment is just a short walk across the road from the stony lakeside shore and a few steps there is a small food shop and a pub. The village offers all the services including bank, post office, pharmacy, church, restaurants and shops. The pier, far away 1 km, where it's possible to catch a boat to visit the whole lake. This local area is the ideal place for people who like enjoying the lake and for people who want to relax within the quiet of the mountains sorrounding the scenic beauties of Como Lake.
The real treasure of Lake Como lies in its quaint villages that dot the mountains surrounding the lake. A stroll trough some of the ancient villages on Lake Como includes medieval and renaissance churches, winding alleys and striking views of the lake. The cultural is coupled with natural beauty: fresh mountain air, penetrating blue waters, miles of rolling hills and mountains to be explored or simply to admire. In the centre of Como Lake there are famous villas and their gardens. In Bellagio don't miss a visit to Villa Melzi and Villa Serbelloni gardens (now Rockfeller foundation). Then you can take the slow boat and enjoy with a nice cruise on the lake. Nearby you can visit Villa Balbianello in Lenno where Star Wars was filmed. In Varenna you can visit Villa Monastero, Villa Cipressi and Vezio Casle with amazing views on the Central lake. In Tremezzo a visit to Villa Carlotta. Also you can cross the Swiss border by car to visit the city of Lugano. There is much to do and see.
