We had a wonderful stay in the Rosa apartment. Located just in front of the lake, the view is as peaceful as beautiful. You can enjoy it by sitting and relaxing in the garden. On the other hand, Bellagio is close so that you can travel around the lake quite easily.
The hosts are really kind and welcoming. They gave us precious information that helped us to organize our stay and our visits. We strongly recommend this address.
We spent one week in this beautiful spot. The location is spectacular, with the terrace jutting directly out over the lake. We lingered for hours each morning over coffee as we watched the lake come to life with ferries, kayaks, and biplanes. Our hostess, Eva Bellini, was incredibly warm, helpful and kind as she guided us to local restaurants and venues we enjoyed. Our well-appointed apartment had everything we could possibly need right at hand. We highly recommend this spot for a quiet, peaceful, relaxing and unforgettable getaway.
We are a couple with a 2yo son, and spent four nights here. It really couldn't be a more beautiful location - the view from the balcony is just a perfect place to eat and sip an Aperol! Eva was so helpful and thoughtful - we really appreciated all the information and maps that were provided, and the kitchen was very well equipped. There's also a great swim spot just below the apartment - it was a bit slippy and stony for a small child, but the adults very much enjoyed it! We had a car, so found Lezzano very handy for exploring - we went to Villa Carlotta and Rogaro on the car ferry (amazing restaurants in Rogaro), explored Villa Malzi and Bellagio, and also got the boat to Menaggio and Varenna. There is also a wonderful fish restaurant in walking distance from the apartment. This apartment was extremely reasonably priced considering the location, and Eva couldn't have given us a warmer welcome, so I would recommend it to anyone.
Our group of 6 just spent a wonderful week in this lakeside villa in Lezzeno, just a short drive from bustling Bellagio. Our host, Eva Bellini, greeted us with warmth and enthusiasm when we arrived. She speaks perfect English as well as German and I think a few other languages. She helped us locate restaurants, shops, and anything else we needed. We enjoyed daily swims in the refreshing lake right from the property. The views of the lake and surrounding mountains and towns are unbeatable. We had everything we needed and more. The villa was sparkling clean and so very pleasant to relax in after a day of touring. Mornings were spent eating fresh baked bread as we sat on our balcony and watched the swans swim by. It felt like paradise. I would definitely return again and hope I get the chance to.
Our family of four recently finished our first European vacation,and with Lake Como on our wish list, and based on other reviews, decided on this wonderful Lezzeno apartment. We had no car, so we took the C30 bus from Como to the Crotto del Misto stop,and a short 150 meter walk south to the apartment,where we were warmly greeted by our hostess, Eva Bellini. She gave us a quick tour of the spacious 3 bedroom,2 bath,2 balcony 'villa' with amazing views of the lake from every window, then offered us a ride to the nearby Helvetia Pizzeria for fantastic pizzas and wine! She also gave us a ride to the local shop in Lezzeno for groceries the next day, and with the small shop almost next door, all of our needs were covered. The next few days were spent catching the almost-hourly C30 bus for the 10min ride to Bellagio,shopping,eating,site-seeing, or catching the ferry to Menaggio, or Varenna. It took a small bit of effort to figure out the ferry/bus schedule timing, as the C30 bus departs Bellagio well before dark,but there were taxis available if the need ever arose. We would arrive back at the apartment and instantly feel at home, with a lounge area with 2 sofas,TV/DVD, and lots of books, pamphlets about the area attractions, kitchen fully equipped and waiting,large dining table, and the balcony just outside to enjoy a glass of wine and a Lake Como sunset. The bedrooms and beds were all very comfortable, proven by the fact that we slept in most mornings. One benefit to early risers is that the bread at the shop next door may still be warm from the oven! But be aware that they only speak Italiano, so knowing the words for foods and numbers is helpful, but not required. The shopkeeper, Santina, was very helpful and patient, and her bread is fantastico!!
Our first trip to Europe, and our first trip to Italy, and we had the best hostess in Eva to introduce us to Italian hospitality. She had great recommendations for restaurants and attractions, and her love for the area shows. Our one regret about our Lake Como stay was that it was over far too quickly, and we all want to return soon! Molto Grazie, Eva!
PS: Crotto del Misto Ristorante, great food, great views, great people made for a magical last night's dinner! Molto Grazie, Marco y Alleso!
We had a wonderful week in this nice place. The apartment was really confortable with amazing view and our very kind host Eva.
We visited Bellagio, Varesa, Varena, Como, Lecco, ... which are around about 20/ 30 km.
The way to the house (during 20 km) is specially lovely for who likes driving... We loved it !
We hope come back soon.
Thanks again for your hospitality,
Shahin and Jhon and our for children from Paris
