Great accommodations near Bellagio
Posted Aug 2, 2013
My family and I just got back from visiting Bellagio and Il Vicolo was a fabulous place to stay! It was a little hard to find because we did not have a GPS and our Italian mapquest directions only worked so far. However, once I called the office and spoke with Adriana, all was fine. The apartments are conveniently located 5 mins south of the town of Bellagio off of San Giovanni (15-20 mins by foot). There is ample parking and it is right near the San Giovanni docks so you can catch a boat to Bellagio, Varena and Mennagio if you like. Our two kids also swam at the dock and there is a wonderful restaurant/trattoria called Mela nestled in there. Having Mela there was great because in the morning we would sit and have our cappuccino and in the afternoons our kids would get a gelato or piadini when hungry. There are also two food markets about 3 mins away by car which we used. As for our rooms, we chose the detached cottage with private courtyard. All three of the Il Vicolo apartments are beautifully renovated. What you see online and their website is what you get! We loved it. The cottage had a small stovetop with refrigerator and microwave along with glassware, plates, etc. My only overall complaint was that that there is no ac and the fan unit was not powerful enough. Other than that it was terrific and we would definitely go back.
