Beautiful Argegno

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent a lovely week in Argegno, the apartment is situated on the hill with an amazing view overlooking the lake and the village, with a small walk to the few restaurants bars and cafes. The apartment was ideal, spacious and clean with all the facilities you need and of course that view, Julie was lovely, she met us on arrival and showed us around the apartment and organised our restaurant reservation that night. Argegno is a small village but is perfect as a base for visiting the beautiful towns around the lake, Como and the best way to travel is to use the ferry boats.

We will certainly return in the future

Lovely apartment, beautiful view!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for letting us stay in such a beautiful place! Your apartment was well equipped and comfortable. The view (when the mist cleared) was beautiful, to left and right and across the Lake. The apartment was ideally situated, easy to access the main piazza, but also to take the mule track up to Pigra and the rain wasn't a problem, in fact, it brought out the fire salamanders; delighted to find three on our way up to Pigra!

We were grateful for your friendly support on arrival and departure (thanks for taking the case down to the piazza!). We look forward to returning to this or to one of your other properties.

Fabulous short break on Lake Como!

  • 5 of 5

We were really lucky to win a stay in this lovely apartment on Lake Como - it was a charity auction for Wateraid which the owners Julie and Barrie had kindly donated. The apartment was very comfortable and well-equipped with a stunning view of the lake and we had a very happy few days there! Thank you Julie and Barrie and hope to be back soon for another visit!

Perfect, clean apartment with stunning views

  • 5 of 5

We've had a wonderful stay in Argegno - thank you Julie and Barrie. We felt welcomed from the start and your apartment was just perfect for us - spacious, clean, well equipped and with views you can never get bored of. The location is quiet yet so close to the road, which takes you to other little villages and towns on the lake. We've enjoyed the boat trip across the lake in particular for the spectacular scenery on the way. We hired a car, which enabled us to see places further afield - Como town, Milan, Bergamo and Brescia to name a few - all full of history and beautiful architecture. We have been to Italy many times before, but this part of the country is truly amazing. And to be able to enjoy it from such a comfortable base, with such a 'bella vista' left us truly refreshed and with memories we will cherish forever. We would recommend this apartment to anyone wishing a relaxing, or more active holiday - the location is spectacular and access to other places really easy.

Perfect Lakeside Relaxation

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we received a warm welcome from Julie on our arrival, our stay was everything we hoped for. We had arranged through Barrie and Julie for some provisions to be bought for us. These were very welcome (particularly the wine), after our journey out.

The apartment is nicely situated with stunning views across the lake. We spent many hours relaxing on the balcony enjoying the glorious sunshine. The sun shines on the balcony from sunrise to late afternoon, though there is a large awning that can be used to create shade if you want it.

The village of Argegno was a perfect location for us from which to explore the lake. We used both the local buses and the lake ferries to visit several towns and villages up and down Lake Como. We used our hire car far less this year than on previous holidays and when we visit in the future we would consider arranging airport transfers instead of car hire.

Argegno is well served with cafe bars and restaurants, less than 5 mins walk from the apartment and the plazza surrounding the central fountain is the perfect place to relax with a glass of wine/prosecco and people watch. There were plenty of food choices available, from pizzas, salads and snacks to full al a carte options. Cafe Columbo was very popular as they serve tapas like snacks to their evening customers free of charge.

Our dining highlight was on Barrie's recommendation. Crotto de Platini is a beautiful lakeside restaurant with wonderful food and wines, worth every Euro. The only meal we were disappointed with was at L' Posteria. The food tasted ok but the portion sizes were small and it was a little expensive. I had Lake Fish of the day which was very small. Had it been caught on a British river it would have to have been returned due to it's size.

We visited the lakeside lido several times. Lake swimming, a nice pool and a shaded cafe bar area. Well worth a list.

All in all a perfect apartment and location. Barrie and Julie were very helpful and their communication throughout the booking process and stay was excellent.

We look forward to our next visit, as we will go again.

Lido for sunbathing and pool now open here in the village of Argegno!

Boat hire is also available from here. Recommendations available on request.


Milan Linate & Malpensa are 1 hour from the apartment.

Car rental is considered essential to get the most out of your stay in the Lakes, however boats and buses access all parts of the lake from the village wich is only a couple of minutes walk from the apartment.


A short drive to the quintessential Italian town of Como. Guide books tell you it is famous for Italian silk, however, we prefer its lake front views, pretty piazzas, 600 old churches, gelato shops (nocciala is our favourite!), alfresco dining and shopping for sumptious Italian delicacies! 25 minutes to the Swiss border for designer outlets in Fox town. 45 minutes to Milan. 20 minutes to the lakeside town of Menaggio from where you can take a ferry to Bellagio.

Further Details:

Argegno offers the authentic lakeside experience where you will mix freely with the welcoming locals. This pretty fishing village is famous for it's authenticity as a local lakeside village unaffected and unspoilt by hoards of tourists. Visit the bakery for freshly made bread and cakes, Mario's fruit and veg

for the freshest seasonal ingredients or treat yourself to one of Zoe's delicious home made icecreams. The village is home to all amenities from bank to chemist, post office to cafes and bars not to mention a fine selection of resturants from fine dining to rustic italian fayre. Pensavo meglio ( wine bar ) is well worth a visit. Great wines!!

Out and about the lake, choose from Villa Carlotta in Tremezzo (20 minutes by car). Beautiful gardens in many styles with lake views to die for!

Villa Serbollini in Bellagio with unrivalled panoramic views is a fantstic day out. Bellagio itself is a favourite for holiday makers with it's cobbled streets and unbeatable views. Do not miss Villa Babinello in Lenno. If you wanted to propose to somebody I have yet to see a more romantic spot! Walk to the villa or take the private boat (6 euros) from Lenno lido (20 minutes by car from the apartment). The villa and it's majestic gardens overlook the rich blue waters of the lake. Simply divine. No wonder the new James Bond film was shot at this Villa! (May 2006) You can also relax on the golden sand beach at lido di lenno or take a dip in the lake.

Drive down to Cernobbio (15 minutes south of the apartment)

for an idyllic lakeside walk, a favourite past time of ours for a Sunday stroll. Menaggio, with it's palm lined walkways is another pretty lake village worth exploring. Many boat activities from windsurfing to sailing are available on the lake as well as other water sports.

Mountain bikes are also available for hire if you wish to venture into the vast mountains that surround the lake.

There are plenty of restaurants and places to visit we are happy to recommend. Just as
