We have just returned from a five night stay here and everything about the apartment was fantastic.Cristiano and his wife have thought of everything,the apartment has all the amenities you should need whilst on holiday and to top it off they were the perfect hosts.They have made the place feel like a home and we felt very welcome from the moment we stepped off the boat in Bellagio. The views of the lake from the balcony are spectacular and the apartment is nestled amongst olive groves which surround their garden, along with the fresh produce they grow. One evening we had dinner at their restaurant which is high up in the mountains and they arranged for us to be picked up and dropped back off in the evening. If you want to have a welcoming experience to Lake Como, we would highly recommend staying at Casa Felicita. It added an extra special touch to our stay in Bellagio.
After a whirlwind stay in Florence we were ready to relax and we had the pleasure of staying at Cristiano and Cristiana's lovely property the first week of October. Not only was the property beautifully maintained and equipped, but our hosts went above and beyond to take care of our every need. Their son picked us up and took us to their wonderful family restaurant on our first night. If you enjoy a true farm to table experience along with the utter charm of a family run restaurant, this is not to be missed! They sent cheese and eggs from the farm back with us that night, both of which were amazing! Their son Jacapo is an absolute gem! At the drop of a hat he was there for us if we needed transport. Most everything is within walking distance but a couple of times we needed a lift and he was always there for us. He and his parents made us feel like family while still respecting our privacy! I really could go on and on about our wonderful experience at this hidden gem. Great view, all the amenities you need, cozy bed, wifi, possibly the cleanest place I've ever stayed, and top notch inkeepers!!! Be sure to follow the walking directions that they have posted for you, they are spot on. If you want to decompress surrounded by the beauty of Bellagio and get treated like royalty by a wonderful family, then Casa Felicita will not disappoint! We arrived as guests but left as family!

We only had 1 night at the fantastic apartment but we will definitely be coming back. Cristiano and his family were most welcoming. We had fresh fruit from the garden. Home made cheese and yoghurt from the family's own cows and from the first we felt right at home. Short but steep walk to the village. You really need a car. Beds very comfy. Kitchen has everything although we had dinner in the family's restaurant up in the hills which was fantastic. Cristiano even drove us so we could have some wine. Best food of our trip garden and balcony great to take in the stunning views.
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!
