Pellio Intelvi was a comune (municipality) in the Province of Como in the Italian region Lombardy, located about 60 kilometres (37 mi) north of Milan and about 20 kilometres (12 mi) north of Como, on the border with Switzerland. It is divided in two distinct centers, Pellio Inferiore (or Pelsotto) and Pellio Superiore (Pelsopra). It has been a frazione of Alta Valle Intelvi since 2017.
