We (2 couples) stayed at Apartment Norma in the first week of October 2008. We phoned Francesca as we neared our destination, and she promptly met us with the key. The apartment is about 7 kilometres from Bellagio, on the main road overlooking Lake Como. You'll need a car if you're staying at the apartment - parking is included. The apartment was pretty much brand new and was very well appointed. It sleeps 4 very comfortably. There are 2 bedrooms (one on main floor & one upstairs), full bath with shower on the main floor, second ensuite bath upstairs. The kitchen is equipped with fridge, stove, oven, dishwasher, toaster, coffee maker & all the necessary pans, dishes, etc. There is even a washer in the main bathroom. There is also a small TV & sofa in the living/dining area.......Italian channels only.
We found the apartment to be more convenient than the the hotel rooms & B&B's we stayed in on the rest of our trip. We had the ability to make ourselves breakfast in the morning and keep some wine, cheese & cold cuts refridgerated for late evening snacks. There are a few very nice restaurants on the road between the apartment and Bellagio that are considerably less expensive than the ones in town.
All in all, a very nice home base for our travels to Bellagio, Lugano, and the area surrounding Lake Como.More
