Guestbook comments from the manager

A wonderfully luxurious and spacious apartment which i could live in! Ideal to explore the area, the garden is a fantastic spot to soak up the sun and enjoy the views! The village has everything you could ever need from the ferry to delicious icecream parlour! Will return. James Thomas & Family.

The apartment has every home comfort and made our stay in Lake Como one we will treasure forever. Very convenient to have the luxury of two bathrooms, the kitchen is well stocked and beds very comfortable. Many an afternoon or evening enjoying a lazy lunch or candlelit summer with more than a glass or two of wine. Thank you for all your help and recommendations prior to stay and on arrival. Your local knowledge was invaluable. David Davies & Family



The apartment looked superb on the website and the reality was even better. Loved the lake view and space of the apartment, luxurious yet comfortable. We immediately felt at home. I would definitely recommend you. Jane and Colin Westphall.

Lake Como luxury

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a wonderful family break on the lake. We booked this home directly with the owners, Barrie and Julie, who could not have been more accomodating furnishing us with lots of tips on where to visit, dine and to shop. The home, i can confirm, is exactly as described (if not better) Spotlessly clean, spacious and with every home comfort and wonderful views to boot. Argegno is a charming village and a real find with friendly locals and a good array of restaurants and bars. The ferry and cable car also came in handy during our stay which are accessible from the village. We were a little hesistant at first to book given the warnings on the site regarding booking direct however we neednt have worried. Barrie quickly put our mind at ease, personally taking the time to call us and pointing us in the direction of past reviews and articles online where The Place in The Sun magazine had featured the home so we are glad we took a leap of faith and chose this home which meant a good saving. Thank you once more! We have recommended the home direct and would certainly use italian apartments again if we return to Italy.

Lovely apartment with stunning view

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely apartment which is well furnished and very comfortable. The views from the terrace are outstanding which are accurately reflected in the pictures.

Barrie and Julie are very friendly and helpful hosts and because they live in the area they are very knowledgable about where to go and what to do.

We would definitely go back again and would recommend to others

A Great Apartment Overlooking Lake Como

  • 5 of 5

This is a very stylish apartment overlooking Lake Como. It is of a high quality with a delightful garden area outside. It is also suitable for people with reduced mobility as it is all on one level with only a couple of steps to the front door. Wi-Fi, TV and DVD player are provided for entertainment. There is plenty of space to eat in or out or simply to admire the views. The owner is very friendly and helpful and has local knowledge of things to do and places to visit. There is a local supermarket close by as well as bars and restaurants in the nearby town. All in all this is a good base, well positioned, for exploring the sights of Lake Como.

Holiday to see Lake Como

  • 5 of 5

The property meet and exceeded every wish we had. We had a splendid view over the lake, and were positioned with access to all the facilites we needed. The apartment was clean and well maintained. The whole package was made great by the marvelous help and guidance we received from the representative, Julie. She made our trip so good by advising us on restaurant choice and many a place to see. Thanks very much for that help. The lake and its surrounds were great, even though we had a little bad weather there was always something to see or do. I would recommend this place to anyone.
