- Situated in the centre of Bellagio opposite the main boat landing stage
- Panoramic roof terrace with sunbeds and beautiful views of Lake Como
A Citalia favourite for over 40 years, the Hotel Du Lac is situated in a small piazza of Bellagio opposite the lake's landing stage from where the boats and hydrofoils operate.
In addition to its delightful history, Hotel Du Lac owes much of its charm to the owners, whose wonderful hospitality, personal service and excellent home cooking extend all the way back to 1956. Soon after the Leoni family became the proprietors, the hotel had already become such a popular venue for afternoon tea at the weekends that fleets of boats had to sit patiently before finding a space at the landing stage! Its founder, Arturo Leoni, would signal from the terrace with a flag to notify one of the boats when a table under the portico was free. The lake views are outstanding, especially from the first floor restaurant and attractive roof garden.
The lively café-bar, set under the porticoes on the ground floor, serves snacks at lunchtime and is a lovely place to sip a coffee in the afternoon or enjoy a chilled drink as evening approaches.
The Hotel Du Lac’s ideal position in the main piazza near to the landing stage ensures guests can easily visit the beautiful towns surrounding Lake Como by ferry and enjoy some of the most picturesque views.
The hotel has 42 rooms (official rating 3 star) Child prices apply to ages 2-12 years. Minimum stay 3 nights.

About the location
Holidays to Bellagio have long been associated with luxury, opulent architecture and unrivalled natural beauty. Often recognised as one of the most stunning destinations in the world, Bellagio, commonly referred to as the Pearl of Lake Como, is one of three towns in the Golden triangle - the others being Menaggio and Varenna.
Lake Como is Italy’s
third largest lake and the picture perfect pre-Roman town of Bellagio is the perpetual favourite for holidaymakers seeking to experience the unwavering charm that this enchanting town has to offer. Even with its partially steep streets, exploring the small town can be done on foot or by bicycle, though local busses, water taxis, ferries and even speedboats are alternative options to explore further afield. Popular for its water activities, rowing, kayaking and kite surfing can also be enjoyed on Lake Como’s calm waters.
Back on land, numerous boutique shops selling jewellery, clothes, antiques, porcelains and potteries line the mazy cobbled streets. Culinary delights, typical of the Lombardy region, can be sampled in the main piazza’s waterfront bars and restaurants, accompanied by local wine harvested in North Lake Como and Montevecchia. Famed for its panoramic snow-capped views of The Alps, tree-lined slopes and romantic garden views, Bellagio is also known for its villas, primarily Villa Melzi and Villa Serbelloni.
The hotel is 1 hour 40 minutes from Malpensa. Return private transfers included. To change your transfers or book car hire instead, simply call us once you’ve completed your booking.

We absolutely loved our stay at hotel du lac! The rooms are modern and well appointed, but the family who runs the hotel really made our stay. Luca and his sons (and the adorable family lab) were ever present from our check in to rooftop drinks and excellent restaurant recommendations around town. We had a standard room with a small terrace and partial lake view on the side of the hotel and it was perfect. You will not spend much time in your room in this beautiful little village and the rooftop was absolutely gorgeous. The hotel is just across from the ferry terminal & while it???s a little busy during the day (nothing compared to Venice or Florence), it???s shockingly quiet around Bellagio at night when the day trippers leave. We felt like we had the beautiful cobblestone alleys all to ourselves. Thank you Luca and family! We hope to see you again soon!

We stayed at the Hotel Du Lac in August of 2019 and it was fantastic! The view from the room and the breakfast terrace is breathtaking! The location is excellent with the ferry boats, many shops and restaurants right there. Marta Mauri with reception was excellent in providing assistance with restaurant reservations, attractions to see and recommendations. She also has a wonderful attitude, along with the rest of the staff to make the stay special! The rooms are spacious, recently renovated, and clean! I would strongly recommend staying here, as we definitely will during our next visit to Lake Como.
