“Very nice find in Blevio”
Reviewed March 7, 2013 for a stay in December 2012

person found this review helpful

I stayed at Casa Blevio in December 2012 and forgot to write a review... here it is.

I found this holiday rental flat using the tripadvisor website and was interested for a couple of reason.

1- The price is very reasonable if you compare to hotels and other accommodations around the lake

2- Blevio is really close to Como which makes the access to train and shops very easy

Overall I was very satisfied with my stay there. The flat is easily accessible by car from the centre of Como, just follow the sign to Bellagio and from there you will need to turn in Blevio uphill towards the flat. Personally I would recommend using a small car around the Lago Di Como since the roads are particularly tiny; it also helps a great deal to park close to the flat.

We were welcomed upon arrival by Gian Luigi who spent quite some time showing us around the flat, get the heating going and just making sure we had all we needed. We stayed for few days and we particularly enjoyed cooking for ourselves, prepare coffee in the morning and just relax in the flat overlooking the views. The flat has all the amenity you need in such accommodation, but beware, if you not good with stairs, this is probably not the place for you. There are quite few stairs to get to the entrance of the flat or in between the floors.

Highlight from this:

- Charming flat with all the amenities you need
- Fantastic host (Craig the owner will answer to all you queries before you travel)
- Lovely view of the lake
- Perfect setting (Blevio is a charming village overlooking the lake and the town of Como)

Overall we had a great stay and would definitely recommend to someone who wants to stay around the lake on a budget.

“We loved our stay at Casa Blevio!”
Reviewed June 2, 2012 for a stay in May 2012

person found this review helpful

Casa Blevio was even more beautiful than it looked in the photos. It has so much character. A winding staircase leads to the main living area, which has amazing views of Lake Como. Behind the house, steep stairs lead to deck chairs facing even more spectacular views of the lake. It was unbelievably beautiful. I would have been happy spending our entire holiday just at Casa Blevio.
The house was spotlessly clean and well organised. A bowl of fresh fruit on the table and cupboards with thoughtful provisions made us feel very welcome when we arrived. On rainy days we really appreciated Craig's DVD's and English novels.Casa Blevio was excellent value for money.
Casa Blevio is in a great location. It's only a bus ride away from the the lovely town of Bellagio (loved shopping there), not far from Como and there are some great walks to nearby villages.
We didn't meet the owner Craig, but found him really accommodating and friendly making arrangements with him by phone. Craig's father and mother-in-law help to look after his property - and they were extremely helpful and kind. We really appreciate their thoughtfulness. They picked us up from the railway station and went out of their way to help make our holiday one to always remenber. What lovely people they are. Many, many thanks Gianluigi and Erica.
We had a fantastic holiday in Casa Blevio and hope that we can return very soon. I highly recommend it.

Management Response
11 Oct 2011
Once we learned of the problem with the heating, we called an engineer to come and look at the heating unit. The problem was fixed, and we provided all the extra bedding we could to minimise the inconvenience to our guests - very sorry about the inconvenience. The heating is working as normal now.
