We had been travelling for four weeks through Spain & Italy, and Bellagio was the last stop & a four night stay, designed as total rest & recreation, no further 'retail therapy' needed (though a side trip into Como turned out to be a worthwhile top off).
The Grand Villa Serbelloni is magnificent and well deserving of its Five Star status and historic reputation. We were spoiling ourselves and we came to the right place. The website said "From April to November the salons and the large lakeside garden offer guests the chance to enjoy a holiday far from the madding crowd and close to nature immersed in one of the most beautiful panoramas in the world."...and that was exactly what we wanted at this point and that was Exactly what we got.
Bellagio is a beautiful village, the lake is magnificent, the vistas & the Villa are exceptional.
Starting each day with a wonderful breakfast in a splendid palace like salon, we took short trips (none more than 20mins) by ferry to Lenno, Villa Balbienello and Varenna (a standout) and the Hydrofoil to Como..all from the wharf 50metres from the Villa, all very pleasant, convenient & fun. Front desk staff were friendly & helpful. It was a delight to return to the Villa, assume the horizontal position on a sun lounge poolside and soak up the afternoon sun with a cool beverage provided by the helpful staff, then retire to our room, change and return to the terrace bar for sundowners and accompaniment from the pianist before making a choice for dinner. We dined in the village (having had our fill of Michelin starred restaurants) & we'd return to the lounge in the Villa and be entertained by the Trio with an accompanying nightcap..ahhh
Our room was large (approx 64m2/688sq ft) bright and airy. The bathroom had double basins, a great bath, separate shower, and separate toilet room.
The Gardens are wonderful and you really must walk right around the Villa grounds to get full appreciation of what a marvellous site this is and the care and attention taken with its heritage. I dare say we will return.. so much magnificent lake & lakeside still to see.
