Lovely Stay

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our 2 weeks at this property in Argeno. The views of Lake Como and the mountains from the living room and balcony were world class. The apartment was well equipped and user friendly, and the bed(s) were comfortable. A short walk down the steps to the center of Argeno brought us to several nice restaurants as well as the ferry. We spent many days on the lake on an "all-day" ticket visiting the towns on the water.

Be aware that parking at this rental is daunting. We just could not comfortably use the space provided, as the road was at a precipitous angle leading to the covered parking area. We parked on the road itself. A very small car might do better than the small SUV we had rented.

That said, we would recommend this property for a romantic vacation away from it all.

It is as it says Modern with breathtaking views

  • 4 of 5

The property is as advertised. The layout and facilities are spot on. The place is well maintained and was spotless on arrival. Julie met us as planned and got us settled in. The customer service by both Barrie and Julie was excellent. We would recommend this property to friends and relations .There is a good choice of bars and restuarants in the villlage, which are about 3 minutes down the hill/steps, but a bit longer back up. Being on a hill has its disadvantages and the car parking space can be challenging to enter and leave from. Having said that we had a great time here in Argegno. Barrie and Julie were happy to offer advice about where to go and what to do and we did use the ferry boats on a few occasions to visit other towns on the lake which was easy with no driving. We had mixed weather but this did not stop us having a good time, the large full size sliding window/door allowed us to enjoy the view morning and night despite the weather.Great place ,great time here.

Excellent Lake Como Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Amazing apartment with fantastic views overlooking lake como. I would highly recommend this apartment to everyone as it's in the most fabulous location just a short walk from the village. The accommodation is exceptionally clean and is decorated to a very high standard and Barrie and Julie made our time at Lake Como much easier as they are so well informed of where to go and what to see. We will definitely come back to stay here time and time again. Lake Como is one of the most beautuful places I have ever visited and the local people are so friendly. Xxxx

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

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

Travel:

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.

Distances:

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.
