Great place, so relaxing. Very friendly and helpful hosts available if needed. Shop for essentials and bus and boat stops close by, in walking distance. Good choice of restaurants. Position on the lake is perfect. Driving to the accomodation and around the lake a little hair raising but to be expected in the surroundings. Accomodation is 2nd house on the right (same side as lake) after Hotel Aurora, not noticeably marked but host was there to greet us and wave us down! Would love to come back.

Romantisch gelegen, direkt am See
Wir waren eine Woche im Herbst hier. Toll ist sicher die Lage direkt am See mit einmaliger Aussicht. Die Wohnung ist geräumig und gut ausgestattet. Allerdings sind die Möbel etwas in die Jahre gekommen. Vor allem die Betten: Es wackelt und quietscht… In der Küche findet man alles was es braucht. Vom Toaster über GWM bis zur Mikrowelle ist alles vorhanden. TV, Heizung und WLAN, alles funktioniert einwandfrei. EVA, die quirlige Vermieterin ist äusserst freundlich und sehr hilfsbereit. Wir haben uns wohl gefühlt und kommen gerne wieder.
Dear Bellini family,
Thank you for such a fabulous time here in beautiful lake como! The apartament was perfect, the lakeside terazza spectacular and your help really appreciated! We’ll be back
Fantastic Location on Lake Como
We Spent 9 days here and very much enjoyed our stay. Since the weather was hot access to the lake for swimming and for Kayaking (kayaks available) was invaluable. The garden area afforded shade and sun and there was a spacious covered terrace area for eating ( bbq available). It was a pleasure to eat out there each evening with spectacular views of the lake. The accommodation was spacious and suitable for our needs. The villa is about 10 minutes drive from Bellagio and 10 minutes walk away is a ferry terminal from where you can cross the lake. There is a small local supermarket and a bigger one in Bellagio. There is a good restaurant 2 minutes walk away and they also have take away pizzas. Other restaurants are 5 minutes drive away. This is an ideal location for exploring Lake Como. Eva and Mattia were exceptional hosts, nothing was too much trouble for them. They were always contactable and altogether helpful with anything that we requested. Indeed Mattia was a life saver when he helped us out as an interpreter with the hire company, when my son’s hire car broke down as he was leaving for the airport. We could not thank him enough. His local knowledge was invaluable.
“Didn’t want to come home!”
We rented the apartment above – Apartment Turandot for a week in June. We arrived to torrential rain and were late, so the local supermarket was closed. Mattia very kindly met us and provided us with both umbrellas and enough food to keep us going till the next morning. It’s a very spacious place, right on the lake with easy access to the ferry and bus for getting around the lake. Lots of lovely walks, and two kayaks and two bicycles are provided, so when the weather was good, we spent a lot of time on the water. Can’t say how much we loved this place. All the rooms are bright an airy, and the apartment has everything you need for a holiday.
Mattia was very kind and helpful, which made it more special. We’re already planning to return next year! Lezzeno has a couple of bars and restaurants and two small supermarkets all within in a five minute walk. It’s just perfect for a calm get away with everything on your doorstep.
Thank you for a nice family welcome!
We have very much enjoyed our two weeks holiday in your very comfortable accomodation etc. Peaceful and scenic surroundings, very restful and enjoyable!

Great location and charming hosts
The villa was great – we stayed in the 3 bedroom apartment. It was well equipped and the internet worked great. The best thing, though, was probably Eva, the owner, who was so helpful and charming. She has a book with all kinds of helpful information and lives on the property so she was always around and friendly and helpful. The views are beautiful and there is access to the lake, although getting in the water is tricky over slippery rocks. There is about a 25-30 minute walk to the boat launch to take the boat taxis to other nearby towns, or the bus stop is really close by and convenient. Be sure to visit the nearby cable car in Argegno and Villa Carlotta near Tremezzo, in addition to the towns of Bellagio and Varenna.

We had here a great time in Lezzeno! Thank you for your hospitality and your kindness.
Much love & greets from the morrocans familie O.
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.
“Three meters from the lake”
Very effective solution for big families: we were in the ground floor apartment, two adults and three children.
Beautiful terrace at three meters from the water, with a porch in which we had breakfasts, lunches and dinners at the sounds and silences of the lake.
The owners very kind and available to solve in a short time any issues
Peaceful and Perfect
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.
Perfect apartment on the shores of Lake Como
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.
“A stunning location, in a lovely part of the world”
We’ve just returned from a lovely holiday in Lake Como. We were delighted when we arrived, and amazed at how close we were to the Lake. The view from the property was stunning. Lezzeno is a nice quiet little village. The hotel a couple of doors down has a great restaurant or does takeaway pizza. Days out to Villa Balbienella (James Bond & Star Wars location), Villa Carlotta, and Varenna were great. We travelled with a 20 mth old toddler, and the garden was perfect for him to play in.

Great Apartment / Great Hosts on Lake Como!
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,

Simply the best!
It’s a rare occasion when I would write a review on anything at all but after our experience in Lezzeno I feel compelled to. Before taking our trip to Italy my wife and looked into hotels and just found everything to be incredibly expensive. I was told about a Vacation Rental website and started to research vacation homes. I literally came across hundreds. I admit I was a little hesitant on renting from someone other than a hotel but when I started to look at the benefits I decided to take a chance on it and we ended up doing this in every stop of our unforgettable journey. Part of that journey took us to the quite little town of Lezzeno.
Lezzeno is about 6km from Bellagio. When choosing this location I was worried about getting back and forth to Bellagio as it serves as the main hub of the area. In Bellagio you can make your way to any of the smaller towns on the lake via the ferry. Which is very cheap. Figuring out the bus was difficult at first but ended up being really easy after acquiring a schedule in English. I can scan this for anybody needing it. Very easy. So we did not need to rent a car.
On the first day arriving in Como/Lezzeno, we ran into problems actually finding the vacation rental. This however was 100% my own fault as of all the information in which I decided to forget was Eva’s home phone number. After being stranded for hours and nobody being able to point us in the right direction, I finally came across a wireless signal that I piggy backed on and retrieved her number from my e-mail. I called her and she came and found us immediately. I can truly say, that on our travels, we have never came across anybody so accommodating. Once we got to our flat we knew we made the right decision. Quite, Clean and very nice. The balcony and the views made all difference in the world and this is something that’s hard to come by in a hotel unless you’re ready to pay for it.
We made our lunches in the morning before we left for the day and picked up some food in town that we could prepare at nights in the flat.
A couple things to take in account. Eva speaks fluent English which REALLY comes in handy. When it comes to price, you just can’t beat what she has to offer you for the price she asks. She’s right around the corner (literally) if you ever need anything at all.
The Como part of trip was truly an experience. Very recommended.
Wonderful and peaceful
We had a wonderful stay in the La Traviata apartment. Located just in front of the lake, it is as peaceful as beautiful. You can sit and relax in the garden, watching the lake and mountains. Bellagio is very close so that you can easily travel around the lake.
The hosts were very kind and welcoming. They gave us precious information that helped us to organize our stay and visits. We strongly recommend this address.
The most unimaginable view! The hostess Maria was fantastic, friendly warm and very kind. She made the stay very memorable. The rental was exceptional, the kitchen was highly functional and the rooms were spacious and spotless, the overall rental was fantastic. The location is perfect, a few miles away from Bellagio, walking distance to a grocery store and restaurants . Walking distance to the water ferry of Lake como.
I would definitely return.
Thank you for a wonderful holiday!!!
“The best holiday we have ever had!”
This is a very nice clean and comfortable house with the magnificent view from the balcony, where we cpent seven evenings enjoing the nature! The lake is very pure, so we could swim.
Very pleasant and charming mistress!
