Very Good

“Just Stunning!”

Reviewed 21 Oct 2013

We felt very privileged to stay in Bella Dorio. It is an elegant, luxurious apartment with absolutely stunning views. The rooms are spacious, beautifully furnished and equipped with only the highest quality fittings. We found the most difficult thing was to tear ourselves away from the terrace to do any sightseeing. That said, it is an excellent base to explore the northern section of Lake Como in particular. Nothing was a trouble for Sue who was most helpful, keeping in touch by email and even phoning us to check if all was well. She also provided a huge amount of information on what to see and do in the area. Needless to say, we have recommended this very special apartment to our family and friends.

“A Little Piece Of Paradise”

Reviewed 25 Sep 2013

This is an outstanding apartment with everything you could need. It is very nicely furnished and has amazing views across the lake.The setting is picture perfect. You need a car to get around and there are plenty of places to visit. Varenna has some good restaurants and also regular ferry services to other places.

Response from the owner Thank you Elaine and Mark. So glad you enjoyed your stay. Very best wishes, Sue

“Beautiful views and excellent apartment”

Reviewed 11 Jul 2013

We had a wonderful time in the apartment .The views from the balcony are stunning and the apartment is beautifully clean and very comfortable.We hired a car and visited many places around Lake Como. Sue was very helpful with all the instructions and recommendations of things to do. Would definately recommend this property.

“A wonderful romantic break with stunning views!!!”

Reviewed 20 Sep 2012

My partner and I stayed at Bella Dorio for 4days in early September. We were overjoyed with the apartment; it's well appointed and furnished in great taste. The main aspect that sells the apartment however is the stunning view! Even when the weather is a little grey the view still takes your breath away. The apartment is situated up a steep hill, we consider ourselves pretty fit and it was too much for us, so a car is highly recommended. There is only one small shop in the village that although had everything we needed it did have limited opening hours. We found small convenience stores in the neighbouring villages (off the main roads) and there was a large supermarket about a 20min drive north. If you are looking for a stay where shops and restaurants are on your doorstep then this will not be the place for you but if you are looking for somewhere peaceful, set back and with uninterrupted lake views then Bella Dorio is most definitely for you. Sue was very helpful with arrival instructions and the visitors info and maps left by previous tenants were invaluable, we left our's behind for the next lucky guests. All in all our stay was absolutely perfect; our only disappointment was that we couldn't stay longer.

“Lovely flat with super views”

Reviewed 30 Jul 2012

I stayed in Sue's flat with 2 girlfriends in July 2012 and we loved our time in Bella Dorio. The flat is bright, modern and equipped with everything you need for your holiday. And most of all it's got a nice big balcony with lovely furniture and incredible views. Dorio itself is quite a sleepy little town which we really enjoyed as we don't like crowded, touristy places. I can definitely recommend a stay at Bella Dorio.

“Stunning location - stepping out on to the balcony, relaxing wit”

Reviewed 16 Jul 2012

Simple and efficient enquiry and booking process. The photos understate the location. The appartment was perfect for our family group (A couple with 2 adult offspring) The open plan living room / kitchen opening onto the spacious balcony was great. Sitting on the balcony anytime of day just chilling out - dinner watching the sun fall behind the mountains and even the thunderstorm we experiences was spectacular. We would definitely book the appartment again if going back to Lake Como. Dorio, although not as quaint as some other coastal towns is quiet and in a great place to explore from with the Swiss boarder not far away.

“Unbelievably stunning view - what a treat to stay here!”

Reviewed 14 Jul 2012

I stayed for a long weekend at this lovely apartment and it certainly surpassed my expectations! The view from the large balcony was absolutely stunning, I could have sat there all day and it would be the resson I would want to return again and again. I was also impressed by the apartment itself, modern and well appointed, tasteful decor, it had everything I needed. I would recommend flying into nearby airport rather than Malpensa but once arriving, beautiful locations with lovely restaurants and scenery were very easily accessible with short car journeys. The location felt italian rather than 'touristy' which I loved.

“Fantastic! Very comfortable appartment, with amazing views.”

Reviewed 12 Jul 2012

Bella Dorio is a fantastic apartment on the hillside overlooking the lake, the massive balcony with plenty of room for sitting, relaxing, viewing or eating al fresco offers amazing vies of the lake and surrounding mountains. It is really well & stylishly furnished with comfortable beds, well equiped kitchen and great shower room. The situation is brilliant for visiting the eastern lakeside towns such as Varena, with ferry acces to numerous other locations and a large suoermarket & shopping centre only 20 minutes drive away. I'd definitely go again and recommend it highly!

“A relaxing, haven of peace and tranquility with a breathtaking v”

Reviewed 2 Jul 2012

This apartment is ideally situated with stunning views of the lake that we enjoyed while eating our meals on the spacious balcony. The apartment is in immaculate condition tasteful decorated with modern elegant furnishings, well equipped and comfortable and has a fabulous shower. Everything we needed was thoughtfully provided and the service was faultless.There are a lot of stairs but its well worth it for the view!It is in a quiet area so we felt completely undisturbed but with easy access to some lovely places on the lake and within an easy drive of an excellent supermarket and shopping centre. We would love to come back again.

“Magnificent stay at Bella Dorio!”

Reviewed 1 Jul 2012

We had a wonderful stay at Bella Dorio. The minute we walked into the apartment we felt at home! The apartment was not only very tastefully decorated with a proper kitchen, washing machine and everything else we needed, but was also very clean. Best of all was the wonderful, stunning view of Lake Como from the balcony. We loved Dorio because it was so quiet but yet only a 15 minute drive from beautiful Varena - a lovely town with quaint shops, fantastic gardens and gorgeous lake side restaurants and the ferry to go to the other side of the lake. There was a very good supermarket about 10 minutes drive from the apartment so we elected to dine on our balcony most evenings and just enjoy sun and the stunning views of Lake Como. Good directions on how to find Bella Dorio and the key to the apartment were emailed beforehand. There was nothing we disliked about the apartment and we would definitely recommend Bella Dorio to friends and family. One of the best apartments we have stayed in!
