We had the most amazing holiday at this location in Dervio! I am very happy we have chosen this apartment for our first trip to Italy. The apartment is modern, well equipped, airy and provides more than enough space for the family of four. We have thoroughly enjoyed full lake view from the spacious terrace and shared swimming pool which never was overcrowded. Secure garage was an added bonus, big enough to park transporter and four bicycles.
The apartment situated ten minutes walk from the town centre, beach and shops.Nearby there are alot of bike routes, running routes and nice walks.You can do various water sports and fishing. It was easy enough to get ferry to Varena, Bellagio and other beautiful towns on the lake.
The owner of the apartment was very friendly,helpfull and very efficient at prompt communication during the booking process and during our stay.
We will definitely come back one day, thank you!
The apartment is incredibly clean, comfortable and modern and the views are just incredible!
The pool is by far the cleanest and nicest we have experienced of a holiday rental, and we rarely had to share it with other guests. The apartment complex is small and very well looked after.
The location is perfect - you are away from the hustle and bustle of the larger towns on the lake when you want to relax, but only a 15 min drive from beautiful Varenna, where there is easy parking and a very quick ferry ride to Bellagio and Mennagio. You are also only an hour from Milano, so day trips are very easy to do!
Luca, the host, is very friendly and is on hand at any time, before and during your stay. Everything you could possibly need is supplied at the apartment, so you don't have to worry about a thing when you're there (unlike many holiday rentals).
I would definitely recommend renting a car, simply so you can explore beautiful Lake Como - the apartment has it's own secure garage (and additional parking 100m away if you need to use that also!).
Before we arrived we were a little concerned about no air con, but we had no reason to be! The design of the building and the cooler evening and morning breeze meant the apartment was always comfortable and we slept well every evening.
Our only regret is not booking the apartment for 2 weeks! We felt so at home at Bellavista Giulia - thank you for an amazing stay!
The wide balcony has unbelievably beautiful view over lake Como. Apartment was new and clean, and there were well enough room for three adults. Good place to explore lake Como!
Great place to stay. Great facilities . Owners very freindly and helpful
Great views of the lake take your breath away. would defenetely go back
My husband and I, retired Australians in our somewhat fit and healthy 60's, spent over a week here in March 2016 and just loved it. The apartment is very new, the views are even better than in the pictures, and we had everything we needed, including good shower and a washing machine. We appreciated having a secure undercover garage for the car too, something we have realised is not common as we travel through Italy. It is a steep, but not long, walk up from the village but there is plenty of parking in the village if you prefer to drive, just watch those bends on the road down! The village is a friendly place with everything you need, a couple of small supermarkets, a train station, waterfront cafes and bars and an excellent lakeside walking path. We preferred it to the more promoted villages of Varenna and Bellano, both beautiful, in that it had a small town local feel and much better lakeside walking. As well as enjoying Dervio and Lake Como we also had a day trip to Milano on the train and, in the other direction, by taking the train to Tirano, we were able to do the round trip Tirano to St Moritz on the breathtakingly scenic Bernina Express. So as well as being a beautiful apartment beside Lake Como, it is a good base for other excursions too. We enjoyed some good walking (Dervio to Bellano, Dervio to Dorio) and driving along the lake to nearby villages. The local ferries were not yet running from Dervio but it was easy to get to Varenna and take a lake trip from there.
Luca was a welcoming and helpful host and his Father assisted with checkout. It was then that we discovered that the wonderful artwork in the apartment is his. Wow!
