Exclusive lake view living!

Offering a timeless setting amongst the luxury comforts of home, this modern lake view retreat provides groups of 4 with the perfect year round getaway.

Nestled to the Bellano hillside in an exclusive new residence, the tranquil location is ideal for those looking to either relax or enjoy the attractions of the central lake. The apartment is ideal for couples as well as family and friends, with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms in all.

Internally the 85sqm layout offers a bright and inviting ambience perfect for holiday stays. Open plan for maximum practicality and enjoyment, guests can easily unwind to the stylish lake view sitting area whilst a delicious homemade feast is prepared, to the fully-equipped contemporary kitchen.

The breathtaking lake views form an idyllic backdrop to a memorable indoor meal or to your favourite movie, on the flat screen TV and DVD player provided.

Fully-equipped with modern day comfort in mind, the sumptuous holiday home also benefits from WIFI access and air conditioning.

A sunny lake view balcony terrace offers an equally memorable spot from which to enjoy a romantic aperitif, before dining out at one of the town’s many authentic restaurants or in the picturesque idyll of nearby Varenna.

The apartment features flexible sleeping arrangements to suit small groups of 4, with two bedroom suites that each offer optimum privacy and home comfort.

Couples can easily unwind to the tranquil ambience of the double bedroom whilst additional guests can enjoy relaxing to the serene style of the second twin bedroom. Both fitted with a contemporary en-suite shower room, each room further benefits from direct access to a shady outside terrace.

*Please note the WiFi signal can be weak due to the hillside location*

As well as the beautiful central lake views to savour, guests can also enjoy a relaxed day by the resident’s outdoor swimming pool.

Note: Pool availablity may be subject to Covid-19 restrictions.

Public parking is provided close to the new residence and guests are also within easy reach of Bellano’s lakeside shops, cafes, restaurants and marina.

The vibrant and authentic lake town also offers a frequent train service to neighbouring Varenna and onto Lecco and Milan.

Varenna itself is a joy to explore throughout the day and night, with the pretty pastel townhouses and cobbled streets of the old quarter leading past quaint cafes, lakefront restaurants, charming wine bars and boutique shops. The famous resort town is also home to the Villa Monastero gardens and the medieval site of Castello di Vezio.

The car and passenger ferry service from Varenna also offers an easy and convenient way to reach the famous villa attractions and the delightful resort town settings of Bellagio, Cadenabbia and Menaggio.

Families can easily enjoy a stay here, with the ‘Jungle Raider Park’, mini golf, tennis, horse riding and the public beach of Lierna all close to hand on the central lake.

Water lovers can easily enjoy a refreshing lake swim alongside kayaking, sailing, boat rental and windsurfing, finished by a relaxed moment at the fabulous Lidos of Bellagio, Menaggio and Lenno.
Outdoor enthusiasts can easily reach the extreme sport centre on the Bellagio hillside, the wide range of hiking routes and the nearby ski resorts of Piani di Bobbio and Madesimo.

The ‘Menaggio & Cadenabbia’ Golf Club offers a breathtaking round of golf whilst for those looking to relax and replenish the senses; the intimate ‘La Dolce Aqua Spa’ in Lenno offers the perfect remedy.

Guests can also just as easily enjoy a cosmopolitan day out in Milan (via car or train) or in the Swiss lake capital of Lugano (35 minutes drive away from Menaggio).

We were two families with children and spent 4 days at the Bellavista Grande. We absolutely loved the place! It had everything we needed and more. The views from the balcony are absolutely breathtaking! We loved the location, with the ferry station being just a short walk from the villa. We visited Villa Balbianello, as well as Villa Carlota. Both spectacular!

We were very impressed with the service provided by Happy Holidays Team! They were always very helpful, professional and answered all our questions quickly. Could not ask for more! Highly recommend both the villa and the agency.

Sehr geehrte Frau Gulien und Herr Lubberdink,
herzlichen Glückwunsch zu ihrer schönen Ferienanlage. Wir haben den Urlaub dort sehr genossen und hatten wunderbare Tage. Gerne geben wir ihnen ein Feedback zu der Ferienwohnung Gardenia 3. (Sorry für die verspätete Antwort, aber das ist halt so, wenn die Ferien vorbei sind, geht es gleich wieder los mit der Arbeit und die Bewertung schiebt man dann gerne etwas nach hinten)
Ich vergebe einfach Punkte von 1 bis 10 und schreib ihnen einen Kommentar dazu.
Lage: 10 Punkte super Ausblick über den See. Super Ausgangspunkt zum Wandern. (oben bei der Einfahrt zur Anlage geht ein Weg über die Autobahn und dann hat man direkt Anschluss zum Trail del Viandante)
Anlage: 10 Punkte sehr gepflegt, Pool, Garten, Terrasse alles sehr schön und edel.
Betreuung: 10 Punkte Sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. (Nachdem wir unsere Anfahrtsbeschreibung zuhause vergessen hatten, erhielten wir - sogar am Sonntag - telefonische Unterstützung und dann war die Anreise kein Problem mehr)
Wohnung: 10 Punkte Sehr großzügige Ferienwohnung, Einrichtung sehr edel und geschmackvoll. Ausblick überall sehr schön. (Wohnzimmer, Terrasse, sogar vom Schlafzimmer aus Blick auf den See)
Ein paar Kleinigkeiten bzw. "Verbesserungsvorschläge" habe ich noch: Die WLAN Verbindung ist ausbaufähig. (wir hatten nur Verbindung vor der Wohnung, Richtung Pool.) In der Wohnung war kein Empfang möglich und dafür 35 € erscheint mir etwas viel. Die Dusche im großen Schlafzimmer hatte schon etwas Patina angesetzt
Der Ausblick im kleinen Schlafzimmer auf den Kellerschacht ist auch nicht umwerfend. Ich denke etwas Farbe würde schon helfen, damit der Anblick etwas freundlicher wirkt.
Zusammenfassend: eine sehr gediegene, schöne und gepflegte Ferienanlage in schöner Lage.
Wenn ich es nächstes Jahr wieder einrichten kann mit dem Urlaub kommen wir gerne wieder.
Viele Grüße aus München und eine schöne Sommersaison
Helmut Hertlein mit Familie
