Casa Blevio is a wonderful peaceful place to stay with fabulous views of the lake and a great garden to sit in and watch lake life.. It is set amongst Italian residents so gives an authentic feel to the experience. The house is accessed up very steep steps so this accommodation in not for people with any mobility issues. However if you are reasonably fit it's no problem..the whole area is set high up so after a month there with no car I came back in much better shape..like a workout with a great view!
The house has everything you need and quiet little Blevio itself it so un-touristy it makes a great place to return to every day. Giani meets and greets from the station and brings freshly laundered and ironed laundry once a week..the attention to detail is very touching. There is a shop and bar at the bottom of the steps next to the square and further down a lakeside restaurant.
Access around Como is so easy with the many cheap buses that run from the road about a 5 minute walk away. You can also buy a 10 euro buss pass for the day and pretty much see everywhere if planned. Boats which leave less often from the lake are actually cheaper than the bus when going to Como..and such a great way to travel...check these out. Note that you cannot buy bus tickets in Blevio so have to pay a surcharge of 1.30 euro on the bus..
I had a great break here and would like to thank Giani and his wife Ericka.
P.S A new bed had been purchased before my arrival and it was lovely and comfortable.

We enjoyed three perfect days in this delightful house. The steps are a challenge but well worth it. Easy connections to Como and a great little shop in the village with a very helpful shopkeeper who speaks English. Thanks to Gianluigi for lifts to and from the station and for giving us invaluable information and advice. Can't wait for our next visit!

“Living like a local”
Reviewed 14 November 2013 for a stay in October 2013

person found this review helpful

This little apartment is much larger than you think. The layout makes it a very cosy and charming place to stay in when you visit Como. Although a little distance out of Como centre it is well serviced by local, regular and frequent bus service. It was so relaxing to sit on the little balcony sipping our sundowners after a day of scenic discovery of many little villages .The walking trails are just great and Casa Blevio is perfectly positioned for this activity. You must visit the local store . Not only is there a good range of Italian produce but the staff are fantastic with their culinary advice and tourist info The highlight however is the manager, Gianluiggi. A perfect gentleman who picked us up from the railway station, gave us a very good introduction to Casa Blevio and when we finished our stay drove us to the train station. Excellent service all round from booking to finish. Highly recommend for an authentic stay.

“Fantastic view - shame about the parking.”
Reviewed 12 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

The apartment was probably typical of ones in the area (ie it was built into the hillside and involved a lot of steps). It was functional rather than luxurious but I was impressed that the owner had thought of providing lots of little extras.
The bed is a bed/settee so it is not great -but it was ok. It is on the lower floor down a metal spiral staircase. Beforehand I had imagined eating meals on the balcony which is pictured on the photos - but this was not practical (since access is gained from the lower floor and the kitchen is up the spiral staircase). Also, the sun never gets onto the balcony. (it does get onto the garden in the late afternoon). Although it is only 4km from Como one cannot walk along the lakeside-and the road is a bit dangerous for pedestrians.

As I say the main problem is with parking. There are very few spaces on the road and if you find one you they are difficult to manoevre into. I did not dare return to the apartment after 8.30pm because chances of parking would have been almost zero. Having said that, if/when we return to Lake Como I would probably not bother with a hire car. The road between Como and Bellagio is tricky and you have to pray that your wing mirrors survive.

“Fantastic apartment with breathtaking views.”

Both the owner and agent were truly welcoming and accommodating - even stocking the fridge with a few beers! The apartment has breathtaking views overlooking the lake from both the terrace and garden. The size of the apartment is perfect for two people. If you'd prefer to avoid the 'touristy' spots, Blevio is the perfect town. Small but does include one amazing (quite expensive) restaurant, local shop, bar and pizzeria. The apartment is located on a hill about a 15 walk to the lake. You can drive most places if you prefer not to walk. There is so much to do here: boat trips, hiking, cycling, villas etc. We struggled to fit everything into one week. The only small downside was the bed - fine for a week, but we have slept on more comfortable beds. Overall, a fantastic holiday.

A fantastic place to stay in a beautiful little village near Como. Great for self-catering. Lovely walks from the front door. There is a deli in the village with all you need (and more) and a very good restaurant down on the waterfront (both are closed on a Monday).

“Very nice find in Blevio”
Reviewed 7 March 2013 for a stay in December 2012

person found this review helpful

I stayed at Casa Blevio in December 2012 and forgot to write a review... here it is.

I found this holiday rental flat using the tripadvisor website and was interested for a couple of reason.

1- The price is very reasonable if you compare to hotels and other accommodations around the lake

2- Blevio is really close to Como which makes the access to train and shops very easy

Overall I was very satisfied with my stay there. The flat is easily accessible by car from the centre of Como, just follow the sign to Bellagio and from there you will need to turn in Blevio uphill towards the flat. Personally I would recommend using a small car around the Lago Di Como since the roads are particularly tiny; it also helps a great deal to park close to the flat.

We were welcomed upon arrival by Gian Luigi who spent quite some time showing us around the flat, get the heating going and just making sure we had all we needed. We stayed for few days and we particularly enjoyed cooking for ourselves, prepare coffee in the morning and just relax in the flat overlooking the views. The flat has all the amenity you need in such accommodation, but beware, if you not good with stairs, this is probably not the place for you. There are quite few stairs to get to the entrance of the flat or in between the floors.

Highlight from this:

- Charming flat with all the amenities you need
- Fantastic host (Craig the owner will answer to all you queries before you travel)
- Lovely view of the lake
- Perfect setting (Blevio is a charming village overlooking the lake and the town of Como)

Overall we had a great stay and would definitely recommend to someone who wants to stay around the lake on a budget.
