As I was planning my little stay in Bellagio this summer, I was keen on wanting to experience it like a local. On that account, hotels were not on my list, so I began my hunt for the perfect holiday home. Thanks to Airbnb, I came across this lovely home near Bellagio. Falling for the pictures and the wonderful reviews already, I just knew that this home was the one.
Around two days before my arrival, the lovely host, Sally, emailed me a cute little mp4 of how to find her home, a generous pdf of a list of things to do and places to visit in Bellagio, and contact details of the taxi service to pick us up from the port, leaving me with absolutely no questions or doubts regarding anything, allowing me to just relax and look forward to the trip.
Walking into the home and finding this view amazed me. It was like a dream, the beautiful mountains and the tiny little houses and shops around.
The house was very neat and tidy, very cute and very vintage, and that I absolutely love. If you know me, I have a special liking for everything vintage.
Quite honestly, it’s a very spacious home and perfect for anyone, a huge family/ a small family/ couples/ group of friends.
Towels and bath mats were all nicely provided – very cosy and homelike.
We were also happy to find a table fan which was just about perfect for the Italian summer.
I still can’t get over this view. It felt so magical to wake up to this. I still refuse to believe it was real.
If this isn’t the perfect morning, what is?

There’s wifi! Not to worry 🙂
Ladies! The beauty room had just the right amount of lights we all need.
Apart from providing you with her lovely home, she also provides a huge welcome file which you’ll find on the table, with a list of everything you’ll need, from restaurant recommendations to taxi numbers to sightseeing suggestions, you name it.
You could take a taxi to get to Bellagio Town from the house but we chose to walk and it was the best decision we ever made.
I urge you to contact Sally and book your stay if you’re visiting Bellagio, I highly recommend it. What better than to stay amongst locals and experience the raw life in Bellagio as it is?
