About the property

6 Persons, 4 Beds, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom

This apartment is situated in the picturesque lake village of Argegno, on the sunny west side of Lake Como. This west shore has a particularly mild climate and one of the prettiest promenades of the entire lake.

The apartment is the ground floor and basement of a three-story property, built on the mountain slope below Via Schignano, nestled up against the stone. In Argegno village the alley ways are narrow and winding. One of these, Via Garibaldi, leads from the village up to Via Schignano.

The apartment is furnished with an Asian/Italian fusion. Furnishings are lacquered powder red, olive black and chocolate brown. Wardrobes are tapered cabinet style, and the apartment is littered with Asian fabrics and silk rugs together with unique antiques from China, Indonesia and beyond.

There is a bright kitchen-living room with access to the terrace, a master bedroom (off the kitchen) small center bedroom and 3rd bedroom with access to the village side terrace. If you want to avoid the direct sun, shutters will provide pleasant semi-shade.

The apartment’s modular kitchen is houses a large fridge, five-ring gas hob and electric oven. Kitchen units are heavy modular beech and stainless steel with a freestanding butchers block.

The apartment also benefits from Wireless Internet Access throughout ~ bring your laptop!

There are 3 double bedrooms all with lake views. The apartment has radiators in every room for the winter guests, and ceiling fans supply a cool breeze during summer months.

Guests should feel free to relax and set the selection of outside furniture out on the terraces for delicious “al-fresco dining”.

Guests will need to park their car a little way from the apartment and walk the last few yards (approx. 200 m). The house has a simple facade - inside, roll the shutters up and it is flooded with light. You are bathed in daylight and can enjoy a wonderful view of the lake from every room.

The apartment is cool in the summer and heated by radiators in every room in the winter and is therefore an all season apartment and can be enjoyed any time of year.

In the summer the locals and tourists lounge and swim at the many Lidos scattered around the lake. As the sun sets the Lido\'s come alive with gossip and the clink of Prosecco glasses.

In the summer the locals and tourists lounge and swim at the many Lidos scattered around the lake. As the sun sets the Lido's come alive with gossip and the clink of Prosecco glasses.

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 (881m), 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.

Skiing:

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.100km.
