Casa Felicita is definitely a home away from home! We were overwhelmed by Christiano & his family's hospitality & friendliness. Every detail is looked after, from arriving in Bellagio to departure. He is available at all times & the house was in spectacular order & extremely comfortable. The view from the balcony is breathtaking & the apartment has everything you might need. The basket of fresh produce on arrival & the use of the vegetable garden, is an added bonus. We did not have a car, but everything was within walking distance. I would recommend transport (small car) for the older couple & families with smaller children. The supermarket is not far & there is a pizzeria just around the corner from the apartment. We arrived as strangers & left as friends! We were sad to leave & will definitely be back!
Casa Felicita is situated in the hills above the heart of Bellagio. It has a huge garden and spacious rooms with comfortable beds (super plus for me ;). The views are really nice, and the food brought in by the home owner, from his own family farm, makes you feel like a local. I think the food was my favorite bit, followed by the views and spacious garden :) And the price for all this is reasonable too.
On to the negatives. It smelled a bit like cigarette in the home (although the place was clean), which bothered us all. Our huge car did not fit through the streets to the house (although the owner said it could fit, you'd have to be a pro-driver to manage this!).
So if you don't mind smokers, come is a smaller to mid-size car, and don't mind being just a bit outside of the center, then this is the perfect vacation rental in Bellagio!
I'd also like to give a special thanks to Christiano for being the perfect host! You really made us feel welcomed!

My husband and I stayed here in July and my only regret is that we didn't stay longer- it was literally the best vacation of my life, and I feel as though I owe that largely to Cristiano and his family for ensuring everything about our stay was perfect.
The apartment was huge and beautiful- would have easily slept an additional family of 4 and an infant. They had a crib, stroller, backpack carrier, and high chair- VERY convenient for anyone traveling with children. Super clean residence, conveniently stocked with everything you need to cook meals, and a wifi connection strong enough to Skype home and brag about your vacation in paradise :)
The family that owns the residence takes absolutely amazing care of you, and you MUST visit their trattoria while you are there!!
The apartment has parking (although the road to get to the house is a bit daunting) and the walk into town is about 10-12 min. There are stairs on the walk, but it is a nice walk and largely shaded.
I know a lot of people probably go to Bellagio expecting to spend tons of money and stay at a ritzy hotel, but staying here will redefine the way you see the town and I guarantee it will be an experience you are anxious to repeat.
HIGHLY recommended. You will not regret booking this location!!!
