In the centre of Menaggio and directly on the water's edge, Hotel Bellavista enjoys spectacular views of Lake Como. The fantastic location means not only are you near to the wonderful selection of shops, bars and restaurants on offer locally, you also have the ferry port and local bus service at your disposal. Run by three generations of the warm and welcoming Faggi family, this former residential villa has been extended and renovated to create a bright and relaxed hotel to enjoy both inside and out.
The restaurant at Hotel Bellavista, Ristorante del Porto, is under a different management to the rest of the hotel and is locally renowned. It offers up fantastic cuisine including local delicacies and fresh fish right from the lake. The al fresco veranda is the perfect spot to enjoy dinner and an aperitif as the sun sets behind the surrounding mountains.
You can spend your days out exploring the many towns on the lake, easily accessible by ferry or perhaps if you want to take to the water yourself, there are a number of places locally where you can hire a boat, giving you the option to take things at your own pace. You may however decide you just want a day or two of relaxing and the hotel have that covered, what with their lake front pool looking out at the stunning views of the water. Here you can kick back on a sun lounger and watch the world go by.
Transfer time: approx. 2 hours by coach from Milan Malpensa airport.
