What a view !!
A property that has been created with love and care and although a little rustic in places this just adds to it's charm. The view is amazing and you never tire of watching the lake. The journey to the property is worth it along the single track because the view is so amazing. Stefy the host couldn't be more welcoming and helpful with excellent local knowledge which means you can escape the crowds if necessary. Would definitely recommend to anyone who wants to be part of the Italian life but far enough away to enjoy the lake from all the tourists. A great place to stay although a car is definitely required to make the most of the area.
Thank you so much for your beautiful review. We are really pleased you had a nice time here and appreciated our house. We do hope you will come back, you are always welcome!!!

Les Etoiles is a lovely place to stay in Bellagio, with fine views over Lake Como.
We received a very warm welcome from Stefy who showed us around and gave us ideas for restaurants and things to do.
The property is delightful with everything you need. When we were there it was very hot during the day but in the evening it was balmy. You could sit and watch the lights come on and explore the stars in the night sky. We loved it .
The only negative is the narrow rough road to the property. If you are renting a car don't get a large vehicle, we had a Renegade Jeep, as it will be easier with a normal family car.
There are a couple of supermarkets in Bellagio so finding supplies was no problem. There are lots of restaurants in Bellagio so there is no problem finding somewhere to eat.
From Bellagio you can catch the ferry to all the towns on the lake with lots to see.
I would recommend this property to anyone but it is essential you have a car.
Thanks again Stefy for your warm welcome and assistance.

Spectacular view and Cozy comfort
Stefy and Alex have worked hard to provide and extremely inviting and comfortable place to experience the extraordinary beauty of Bellagio and Lake Como. The house is situated high on a hillside so the view is wonderful and the little balcony and well appointed patio provide a great place to appreciate the ever changing land and lakescape. The house is very clean and nicely furnished with attention to detail in providing a good espresso machine, granita/ice shaver, popcorn maker, nice, complete kitchen utensils, pretty wine glasses and lots of other things. Due to size probably, there is no oven or dishwasher. The main bedroom is big and the bed is comfortable. The second bedroom is small and most suited for kids. The roosters in the morning provide a little country ambiance but are effectively moderated by closing the shutters. Stefy calls the place L’Etoiles and it is indeed a little sparkler! Be advised that the drive off the main road is not for the faint of heart (but if you are driving in italy, it’s just another little adventure!)
Thank you Steven, we are really pleased you had a nice time here and appreciated our house! We hope you will come back!
Great rental away from the crowds!
Stefy helped us from the beginning.. Picked us up at the ferry, took us to the grocery store and told us what wonderful cheeses and breads to buy, then on to her charming rental home. When she threw back the shutters we had the most breathtaking view ever! This rental kitchen is well equipped for preparing meals, the house clearly shows lots of tender care to make our stay delightfully with all the woodworking Alex has built, and we would recommend it. Beware, however, we were never able o get a taxi at either the ferry area or to go back down to the city. No buses either. Transportation was a huge problem. We are in our seventies and could not walk, but if you are young, and like to walk, this is a good place to stay!
Thank you for the great review about us and our house. Unfortunatelly the availability of taxis does not depend on us, that is why having a car is recommended, as we specified on the site.
Fantastic location, views and hosts
The views are wonderful and always changing. Stefy is very helpful and caring with great English and full of tips. Bellagio is possibly the best base from which to explore the area, especially if you enjoy taking the boats! The property is very clean and well maintained. It's just outside the town and away form the road so is nice and peaceful.
The path beside the house leads straight into the woods and up the mountain... you could walk all day in nature without touching a road. The walk down to the Lakes goes through lovely pastures and backstreets to a swimming beach with cafe-bar/bistro. Walking into Bellagio takes quite a bit longer along roads so we mostly drove to parking on the village outskirts and walked from there.
Taking boats and exploring is the most fun... consider;
- the fast boat to Como (and the funicular to Brunate)
- funsurfcenter watersports and quiet beach at Dervio
- drive and walk to mountain views and lunch at Rifugio Martina
- Alberto's lakecomoadventures for via ferrata and canyoning trips
- beautiful villages to explore like Lenno and Varenna
Difficulties... if you are a nervous driver then the short lane to the property is quite narrow and steep.
Tranquil location and well equipped
A tranquil and beautiful location, although you do need a car. Beautiful garden with good garden furniture and a balcony with great views. The kitchen is well equipped and the rooms comfortable. I would book again.
Bellagio, the pearl of the lake.
"5 vele" village, famous for its historical center and wonderful landscape. Ideal for people who love having a gorgeous view of the lake.
