  • Lake Como, Italy, Bellagio

Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

Hotel Belvedere is one of our favourite hotels on Lake Como. It’s got a great location just above Bellagio and the lake views from up here are amazing. We love taking a dip in the pool and looking out over the lake, or reading a book in the peaceful gardens. You really will feel like you’re away from it all. The centre of town is still easy to get to though. It’s just a short downhill walk away and there’s lots to explore here. It’s a pretty town with cobbled streets, boutique shops and cafés. Walk down to the lakefront and there’s plenty of restaurants where you can grab some lunch. This is where the ferry port is too and it doesn’t take long to head across the lake to Tremezzo where you’ll find the stunning Villa Balbienello gardens.

After being out and about all day, you’ll love returning back to the hotel. The whole place has a lovely modern style that pays homage to traditional Italian décor. The rooms are spacious with parquet floors and Italian made furniture. They have large windows that let in plenty of light and you can upgrade to a lake view room. There’s an a la carte restaurant that’s open for lunch and dinner and serves excellent quality food. The menu’s based on traditional Italian cuisine and there’s a big wine list to go with it. During the summer they open up the terrace so you can dine al fresco.

Transfer time: approx. 2 hours by coach from Milan Malpensa airport.
