Casa Lory
Reviewed 31 August 2014

We stayed in Casa Lory for 5 nights. Appartment was spacious, clean and comfortable. The owner was very friendly and could not have been more helpful. Upon arrival in bellagio, we found that there were no taxis to be found. So, unsure how to proceed, we called Casa Lory for advice. Richard, the owner, very kindly came to pick us up. He also gave us a quick tour of the area showing best places to eat, shops etc.

The kitchen was well equipped ( with the exception of bowls missing ), with good quality equipment.

Casa Lory is approx 15 mins walk from Bellagio centre - as others have commented it is possible to walk through the gardens ( but not all of the way ). The tickets for the gardens are 6.50 euros per day or 8.00euros for two days - so we found the two day option very useful. Alternatively, the ferry is a great option - costs 1.20 euros and takes approx 10 mins. There are not very many of them per day, so best familiarise yourself with the timetable.

Ferry stops around 6pm and the garden closes at around 6.30pm - there are numbers of taxi companies in the apartment which we used a couple of times - cost 10 euros. Service was fast and efficient - although note that it is difficult for cars to enter the lane where the appartments are situated.

The little village ( San giovani ) is lovely - quiet and relaxed. It has a great little restaurant ( mella ) which is perfect for dinner and a funky cafe / bar/ shop ( called Ne Ne ) which is great for breakfast / coffee and basic supplies.

Tip: if arriving by train from verena - catch the boat all the way to San giovani rather than getting off in bellagio as we did.

Room Tip: Request a room overlooking the lakes - we had room 'fog' - great views

Loved the little village to escape the crowds of Bellagio. Great coffee shop and nice bar for apperitivos overlooking the lago. Nice walk through the gardens to Bellagio. Spacious accomodation which was great for our young son. Well equipped kitchen. Would recommend.

stayed in casa lory in june 2014.

we stayed in with 3 people. the apartment could accomodate 4 people easily.
it is very nice and cozy and nearly felt like home. nothing missing from tabs for dish washer up to list with things to see and explore in the sorrounding area.
The owner was very nice and helpful.
the only problem inside the house was the seperated bed in the living room which was a little bit uncomfortable but we solved this problem by putting the matress on the floor instead of the folding bed.
the house is in a quite area behind a bigger road so typical italian traffic won't bother you.
the only problem with the location of the house is the mega tight road which leads to the parking lot nearby. with a bigger car you will be scared for scratches every time you pass by although it is big enough it doesnt look like! so take care and drive slow!
we had somebody walking infront and guiding me through it just to make sure nothing will happen. there is a "beachie" area within walking distance. also the town center is reachable by foot but be aware...you will have two choices....a) the Road...very bad to walk, lots of crazy traffic, with kids very dangerous!! b) the private garden villa melzi....where you will have to pay a couple of euros but its well spent! much safer to walk and you will get to see a stunning private garden where you can spent all day and just wander about! we bought a 2 days ticket to save a little money because we knew walk through the garden more then once since it convenient connection to the town center and casa lory.

all in all definetly recommend to stay in casa lory! you wont be disappointed for certain!

one of the most beautiful areas in the world i have seen till now!!!

We stayed for 8 nights in the attic apartment, as a base for exploring Lake Como. The apartment was spotlessly clean and well-equiped, including a washing machine (which hadn't been mentioned in the ad), comfortable bed, etc. Exactly as the photos on the website show. And the owner was really friendly and helpful - even taking us up to the supermarket in his car on our first evening to get some essential supplies.

Location is lovely - we found San Giovanni much much quieter and more peaceful than Bellagio itself so great for sleeping and relaxing morning and evening walks. There is a great coffee and wine bar just 2 mins away in the village, as well as the restaurant. And a good playground a few mins walk away, by the square, so great for kids.

The only issue for us was that there isn't a footpath all the way to the town of Bellagio - which means you have to walk alongside a road in some places, which is quite narrow and has some very fast cars in places - not great for us with two young children (aged 3 and 5). It was possible to get the bus from the road just above the apartments, but these often didn't turn up so we could be waiting for 45 mins or so. We only discovered on our last day that that little sightseeing train runs from the square (by the playground) in San Giovanni to Bellagio and only charges 3 euro (not the full fair for the round trip) - so that was a good option if we'd realised. Not a problem if you had a car - and while the road into the street is quite narrow, it's perfectly drive-able and there's lots of good parking beside the house.

So we'd highly recommend this property as a good option if you have a car, or don't mind walking partly along a road for 5 mins to get into town, or are happy to get the little train. Certainly much better value than you would find in Bellagio itself, and close enough to be a 10-15 min walk at most.

Room Tip: The bottom apartment is vast - three huge bedrooms and two bathrooms. The 2nd floor apartments look...

We stayed here for one night in mid April, and we wish we could have stayed longer. You need at least a couple of days to really see Lake Como. We stayed in the attic apartment, so didn't have a view or a shower (although there was a bath). If you are staying longer, choose an apartment on the lower floors. Also, eat at the fish agriturismo restaurant near the church, the food is excellent.

Room Tip: The attic apartment has no view, and only a bath, not a shower. Downstairs apartments may be more co...

Lovely and quite apartment with three bedrooms and two bathrooms. Perfect for a big family! Lot of space. Very well equipped. Friendly hostess. Nice private garden!
You need to walk 10 or 15 m. to Bellagio downtown.

Comfortable apartment with a few challenges for 4 adults over 60. Problems were no head room over single beds or bath. Shower handle cannot be used for stand up shower - dangerous for older people or immobile. Problem 2 the access road in is very narrow. We scratched our peugot 5008 even with side mirrors folded in!
Francesca left the key in the letter box for us -we were lucky that the guests in nearby apartment helped us out. Francesca came day 3 to take payment - unfortunately she forgot the toaster that we requested day 2.
We loved the family run restaurant within walking distance La Mella - we enjoyed wonderful fish meals and gelato. It is possible to walk to a nearby beach for a swim. We were in the attic apartment so our views were limited. We did use the ferry from San Giovanni nearby.
Supermarket is a drive our bus ride away.
A few minutes drive into Bellagio township.

Room Tip: Ground floor apartments are probably better
