Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Bellano - Borgo Verginate Lake Como

Nature and relax in an authentic Italian hamlet but close to Bellano and Varenna

Live in an authentic Italian Hamlet , a 'magic and charming location' overlooking the lake Como just one hour drive away from Milan. The house, completely rebuilt in 2010, consists of 5 apartaments (one and two-bedrooms) , each one with balcony and a table +BBQ in the garden with a stunning view over the lake. Enjoy strolling in the sourroundings woods, a few steps away there is the famous ancient trail 'Sentiero del Viandante' running along the East cost of the lake.

Harmony and nature without missing all the attractions that the Alpine Region, Milan and Bergamo offer. Enjoy the evening lights of the villages lake side sitting on the balcony tasting a good glass of wine........

The town of Bellano is a short drive away where you can find supermarkets, shops, restaurants, the Marina and sailing club, Railway station, public boats for touring aroung the lake. The lovely and characteristic Varenna and Villa Monastero is 6 km far away, also there you can take the ferry to vist Bellagio and Menaggio.

A mountain road steep and narrow in some places to reach the house; at the moment, there are 50 mt of no asphalted. No spider no trolley. Take note that in google maps our house seems to be overlooking the motorway Milan - Colico while this runs in a tunnel.

About Roberta Gerosa

Borgo Verginate is a passion for us ! We are two families as owners and we finished in 2010 to rebuild completly the old house; We tried to keep the ancient charme using some of the old stones covering the walls. What remains the same is the amazing lake view and we wish you to enjoy this magic location bringing home the feelings it gives us. Roberta, Luigi, Mauro e Mosè

Leuke plek om te zijn voor 1 week

  • 4 of 5

We've had a good holiday in Bellano. The appartment was good and Roberta and a another person (we forget his name) are very prety people. Another plus: the washing machine and sheets that are changed every week.

A disadvantage: It wasn't nice to see that there was rag on the ceiling and table. Unfortunately there was no cleaner in the apartment.

Good to know that you've to go on a small way, with many curves, upstairs to the appartment. It's about 10 à 15 minutes to go to Bellano by car. We are young people and we came to walk in the area of the apartment / Bellano. Near by the apartment there were a few hikeroutes, but not (long) enough for us. One day we have to go to the other side of the Comolake and there are more hikeroutes. On the other side of the lake is also a beautiful place to go: the Domaso waterfalls (the best way to go is to follow the places: Dervio, Colico etc.). Driving by car is about 45 minutes. It's beautiful to see that place. For children it's less suitable. The first route you can do that with children. Than the way stops and you've to climb on rocks on the water upstairs the river. That's very beautiful to see that.

In Bellano, there's a little to do. It's a nice place to walk by the boulevard and look in the shops, but it isn't nice to sit there in the evening. Then, it's better to go to Varrena (driving 20 minutes with the car). Also it's nice to rent a boat in Dervio by the lake. The boat have a speed of 40 pk and it's very nice to see the different places from the Comolake.

A tip for other young people / couple, who like climbing and rest: go to this apartment for a week. It's a good place to be and the view is very beautiful.

Owner's Response: Thanks for you review. We are happy you enjoyed your holidays. I need to asnwear to some comments of yours, not very precise. Our house is 2,5 km far away from Bellano and it takes about 5 minutes drive to get there or 30 minutes on foot. As written in the book we leave to our guests, we wish to be informed if there are some problems in order to solve it during the holiday instead of receiving complaints when nothing can be done. I don’t know what you mean by “rag”, in anycase every apartment has a vacuum cleaner , the guests after you told us it was broken. Now it has been replaced. For the cleaning up of the apartment we use another professional one. Our house is just on the famous trail “Sentiero del Viandante” running along the East shore of Lake Come for 45 km. Also from our house you can walk up to the mountain Legnone about 2.609 mt high. If you had asked us we would have given you some more tips about the hicking tours nearby and in the region.

Malgré un temps mitigé, nous sommes ravis d'avoir pu connaître le Lac de Côme et faire cette belle rencontre avec Roberta and Co. Leur accueil , leur gentillesse et leurs conseils avisés dans un très bon français entre autres nous ont permis de visiter cette très belle région aux paysages variés (eau et montagne), aux habitants très chaleureux

Confort, calme et dépaysement

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé 2 semaines splendides. Un paysage magnifique de toutes les fenêtres, une terrasse et un balcon pour manger dehors. Ici, les propriétaires ne louent pas juste pour louer mais tiennent à ce que leurs locataires soient parfaitement à l'aise: tout est prévu dans le moindre détail, tout est d'une propreté irréprochable et nos hotes sont sincèrement dévoués et accueillants.

La maison est idéalement située et permet d'accéder à la piscine, au lac, de se rendre à la gare pour visiter Milan ou encore de parcourir les villes voisines en bateau.

Parfait pour un séjour en couple, en famille ou entre amis.

Petit coin de Paradis au dessus du lac de Côme

  • 5 of 5

Borgo Verginate est le lieu idéal pour profiter des paysages grandioses du lac de Côme: à deux pas de Varena (joli petit village où il fait bon se promener en bord de lac), de Bellagio accessible par bateau (petite ville touristique incontournable), de la Grigna Settentrionale (petit sommet accessible pour les marcheurs, avec vue grandiose sur le lac par temps clair)... Sans oublier les couchers de soleil imprenables sur la rives gauche du lac, les balades le long du Sentiero del Viandante et l'accueil chaleureux de Roberta!

A recommander absolument, en amoureux, en famille ou entre potes.

Thank you for the nice stay

  • 5 of 5

The perfect place for a peaceful and relaxing family vacation. Wonderful view of the lake. The modern apartments are equipped with taste and love (a rarity when the apartment has a microwave, toaster, washing machine, iron, hair dryer, new furniture and tableware, the possibility of a barbecue, WiFi )

Very attentive and hospitable hosts have thought and have provided everything that can be useful during your stay.
