Welcome to Lake Como one of the most beautiful areas in Lombardy. This pre-alpine lake surrounded by a crown of mountains with peaks up to 2700 m high, is not only spectacular but rich in history and tradition. The lake is perfect for active as well as relaxing holidays. Splendid 17th century villas with their lovely gardens, antique Romanesque churches, old connection trails, mountain tops with a superb view of the lake, and lots of sport facilities await you.
Lake Como is situated 45 km north of Milan close to the Swiss border. It is 46 km long and has the form of an upside down Y dividing itself into two branches at the town Bellagio with the town Como at the tip of the southwestern branch and the town Lecco at the tip of the southeastern branch. Its crystal clear waters are up to 400 deep, making it one of the deepest lakes in Europe.
By boat you can enjoy the view of the shores dotted with small towns of rare beauty, by bus or car you can discover the valleys with their rural settlements and small churches and by foot or mountain bike you explore the many trails around the lake.
To the South, it gives way to the verdant landscape of Brianza, with villages, castles and hills marked by the flow of the Adda and Lambro Rivers.
Characterized by 19th-century buildings, beautiful cobblestone streets and staircases, and plenty of shops specializing in the finest Italian wares, Bellagio is widely referred to as “The Pearl of Lake Como”. The apartment is at the first floor of a villa which is recently refurbished with the utmost comfort and convenience in mind, and is a very convenient 15 minute walk from Bellagio where you will find plenty of shops, restaurants, sport facilities and direct hydrofoil and boat links to all the other parts of Lake Como.

3 bedrooms (one with king bed and 2 twin rooms), 2 bathrooms (1 with tub and 1 with shower), living room with double sofa bed, kitchen with fridge freezer, microwave and all appliances.
The property was exactly as described. The apartment was spacious and well appointed. The view was magnificent. And the owners were absolutely lovely people who were extremely welcoming and accomodating during our stay.
I would definitely recommend this property to friends. While walking to the house from the town is good exercise and pleasant during the day, I would recommend a rental car for excursions in the evening although we were able to call a taxi to take us home several times after nightfall.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Villa Red Maple in Bellagio.
