We adored this place, and expect to return. This spacious flat is located in Griante on the shores of stunning Lake Como. It is located just a short drive/walk uphill for some amazing views of Bellagio. There is a parking spot designated for the flat. I have trouble with stairs, and I didn't have any problem at all with these shallow, wide steps. We were greeted with snacks and wine in the full kitchen. There is a living room that leads to the deck, where you encounter the breathtaking views of Lake Como and the mountains behind it. There are two bedrooms, the master bedroom is quite large, with comfortable beds and two bathrooms - one half bath and a full bath. Opening the huge doors and windows created this beautiful breeze, and we had them open all the time. (Tip: The wind slammed the doors and windows closed, so we put a shoe in front of the doors and draped a towel over the open windows.) Coffee on the patio deck is so relaxing that we didn't want to leave. The sweet church bells toll each day. One small note: The couches in the living room were very uncomfortable and hard on my back. If those are replaced, this place is, quite literally, perfect.
Bellagio is a very short and inexpensive ferry ride (the ferry is a short walk from the flat). If you stay here, please go see Bellagio! Have a long sit-down at a table facing the lake. It's amazing. Take another short ferry from Bellagio to Varenna. Wonderful food and shopping and people in both towns.
Eat any and all of the food in any ristorante or pizzeria you see - it's all genuine and insanely good.
Thank you very much!! We will return!
My husband and I stayed here for one week in early October. The owners were gracious and kind and the apartment was spotless. In addition, it was well appointed with everything we needed to make several evening meals and breakfast. It even had a washing machine and dishwasher. The WiFi was fast and reliable. The location was great for us because Nesso is very quiet and away from the crazy that is Como and Bellagio. And Nesso is on the ferry system. We loved the grotto down below and used it every night.
There are a lot of stairs to get from the parking space to the apartment but we didn't mind.
We have traveled extensively and have stayed at many self- catering apartments in Italy. This is our favorite and we would love to return.
