La Pergola, Hotel and Restaurant, drawn from a sixteenth century-building, lies by the lake, in a most typical fishermen's hamlet called Pescallo, right on a shore of the promontory of Bellagio, turning south-east and facing the Lecco branch of Lake Como. The House was drawn from a building dating back to 1500, and assigned to a convent in the past centuries.
The centre of Bellagio is but 10 minutes' walk, among the luxuriant olive trees and mediterranean vegetation spred out on the Spartivento Point.
Thanks also to recent works and careful restyling, the building has recovered the original armonic structure from the old convent, characterized by a nice patrician staircase, also depicted with a mannered fresco of the sixteenth century, and by the order and simmetry of the rooms, reminding the ancient cloister; the guest-quarters and the Restaurant, both on the ground floor, still keep the typical low vault-ceilings often used in the architecture of the villages by the lake.
While in the most idyllic and relaxing atmosphere of Pescallo, a contest of great value and intact nature, the holtel can offer all the opportunities for touring on Lake Como: the famous gardens and patrician villas spread out gorgeously on the hills of Bellagio; the old village with its elegant shops, artists' ateliers and lots of characteristic bistro and pubs. Boat renting, beaches and boat or ferry-station are at hand, for your trips on the lake, along with a lot of chanches for Trekking and Sports on the hills of Triangolo Lariano, just above Bellagio.
