Overview

Property

Updated: 03-Dec-2016
A charming Rustico Villa to sleep 7 guests with swimming pool & large garden

‘Villa Victoria’ is a newly renovated detached Rustico, located on the desirable Argegno hillside overlooking the central part of Lake Como.

This beautiful property enjoys a large garden with great facilities as well as flexible sleeping accommodation making this the ideal holiday home!

Inside, the property provides a very stylish and elegant interior offering a very spacious Living room which provides two very comfortable seating areas, one of which surrounds a romantic fireplace and the second of which features a large wall-mounted Flat-screen TV and large windows with panoramic mountain and partial Lake views.

Outside guests can enjoy the well maintained and sunny Garden, which is mainly laid to lawn with a terraced area ideal for 'Alfresco' Dining, and guests can also enjoy the large unheated Swimming Pool. There is also adequate space in the grounds for Parking.

By booking this holiday home you will get free acces to the lido di Menaggio. The Lido di Menaggio has swimming pools, a restaurant, a bar/discotheque, a kids club, boat rentals, a sandy beach, kite surfing and various sportive activities to do.

Location information.: You pass through the small town of Argegno (approx 700 population) when traveling up the Western shore of Lake Como from Cernobbio/Como to Menaggio.Well placed and sheltered, it is situated in a large inlet at the mouth of the Val d'Intelvi. This river flows at varying rates throughout the year as its tumbles from the mountains between Como and Lake Lugano.

Looking across the lake you can see Bellagio to the north and as far as Nesso towards the south. The village is of Roman origin and owes its name to the consul Publio Cesio Archigene. With the Lake being ruled by warring factions centuries ago, Argegno formed part of a defensive system, which extended as far as the ancient villa of Lenno and to Isola Comacina.

Further location information: This picturesque and ancient village is crossed by the Telo stream which splits into two parts, after falling down from a the towns ravine. The two are joined by an old stone bridge with a lancet arch.From Argegno, it is possible to take a cable car up to Pigra (881 mts.), which is

situated on a plateau that enjoys a beautiful view of the lake. From here, it is possible to go on to the Valle della Camoggia, which is in the oasis of Argegno-Cima della Duaria, a conservation area.The road, which runs along Val d'Intelvi, also starts from Argegno and after following this road for about about 16 km, you will arrive at Lanzo.

The best way to appreciate Argegno is to walk up one of the narrow lanes. Most are paved with intersecting fan pattern of small square stones typical in much of the area. This area is almost entirely residential but the walkways are impeccably maintained with potted red geraniums and colourful flowers contrasting with the ancient brickwork and facades.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a wonderful holiday at Villa Victoria, it was just perfect.

The house was absolutly idylic and as you can see from the photo we really loved the pool. As for our favorite activity, we hired a boat in Menaggio and had a super trip on the lake. Our favorite restaurant was at the Hotel Belvadere in Argegno, the food and service was superb, we went there several times. The scenery was breathtaking and we did some super drives, we did not do as much as I had planned, we had my 5 year old son and my 76 year old father with us, which is a bit limiting as far a cultural activities go, but this was why we chose Villa Victoria, we had little excursions in the morning and the played in the pool all afternoon. It was perfect. We arrived home to wet cold weather in Ireland and we now spend our evenings dreaming of a life in a country with better weather.Everything was perfect, and when we go on holiday again I will deffinatly consult your web site.

Access to the property is along a well-maintained secondary Road, which is located just 4 km from the Argegno Lakefront. The charming town of Argegno offers guests an interesting, and very Italian blend of medieval romanticism with modern amenities, which include trendy Restaurants and Bars. This picturesque and ancient village is crossed by the Telo stream which splits into two parts, after falling down from a the towns ravine. From Argegno, it is possible to take a cable car up to Pigra (881 mts.), which is situated on a plateau that enjoys a beautiful view of the lake.

A frequent Ferry service runs from the town, offering a car-free alternative to exploring Lake Como if desired. The world famous Vista D���Este Golf course is located just a 10 minute’s drive away in Cernobbio and the cosmopolitan Lakeside city of Como is just a 15 minute’s drive away, making Argegno a great place to relax and enjoy your Lake Como holiday!

Other Activities: Float Plane/Helicopter,Funicular Railway,Public Villas & Gardens,

Golf: There are Golf clubs around Lake Como: The Cadenabbia & Menaggio Golf Club celebrating 100 years this year and is Italy's oldest golf course. Established in 1907 with 18 holes Par 70, it is located above Menaggio near Croce, in Grandola ed Uniti, approx. 20 min. by car. Tel: +39 344 321 03. Green Fees: Weekdays EU 55, Weekends and Holidays EU 70 Euros; Golf Cart Rental EU 36.

Restaurant Golf at the club serves fantastic food and is well recommended.. Guests are always welcome, please call beforehand to check course rules. Golf Club Menaggio: (Menaggio Como).

There is also a first class Golf Course at Varesse for those staying nearer to the Lake Maggorie area.

Ski: This beautiful lake region of Italy is not the best for skiing as you may imagine, despite its scenery, crisp air and near perfect visibilty and mountains capped in winter snow. It does however have Skiing opportunities at local resorts for a day out.

There is a small ski area on Mt. Lema , not more than 10 km from Lugano, but you have to be lucky to have enough snow for skiing. In Ticino, the local Swiss Canton, the best places to ski are probably either San Bernardino (south of the pass of the same name) or Airolo (south of Gotthard pass). Both are reachable in about 1 hour by car across the Swiss border.

There are direct trains to Airolo as well from Lugano and hence from Italian Stations. To S. Bernardino there is only a bus connection. For more snow try Andermatt (on the north side of Gotthard pass) which has normally good snow conditions and a good choice of runs.

The closest major ski resorts are St. Moritz and Madesimo toward the Splugen Pass which is approx. 100K
