Il Poggio di Bellagio

Bellagio, Como

Farmhouse overlooking Lake Como. Wander down through the olive grove to bustling Bellagio, take a day trip by boat to other lakeside gems

Sleeps 10


On a hillside, with the lake glistening below and a footpath leading down to bustling Bellagio village, four apartments have been combined so you rent the whole house as one space.

Friendly sisters Francesca and Odilla were born and raised at the house, and Francesca lives ten minutes away if you need anything. She can arrange cooking lessons with a well-known chef where you make your lunch or dinner, or art lessons from a local artist friend.

Sit out in the lovely garden or by the pool with a glass of Prosecco and gaze at the mesmerizing lake; drive to Bellagio in ten minutes – Francesca will tell you all the secret spots to park in the summer. Ferries take you all around Lake Como, Milan is 40 minutes by train, St Moritz is a two-hour drive.

We were two Australian couples who spent a wonderful week in Francesca's beautiful 2 bedroom/2 bathroom self contained apartment. The apartment was beautifully appointed and we wanted for nothing. The views of Lake Como from both the lovely garden and the house were amazing. Seeing the lake in all weather conditions was fascinating to observe. We even woke one morning to see snow across the mountain tops. Francesca gave us some great suggestions for restaurants and was very helpful with local information. It was a delight to meet her and experience her lovely home.

The neighbourhood

It’s 30 minutes on foot downhill into the lovely village of Bellagio, perched on the shores of Lake Como – but an hour uphill to get back so if you’re in a hurry you can drive in ten minutes. Here, you’ll discover quaint cobbled streets with restaurants, art galleries and gift shops, as well as a ferry to take you around the lake – the museum and botanical gardens at Villa Carlotta and Villa del Balbianello are half an hour away, as is Como (or you can drive in an hour), which has a Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday market selling linens, china, jewellery and paintings.

Francesca and Odilla’s grandparents might not recognise their spruced-up farmhouse. Both are 60+, full of life and always ready for an adventure.
