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

Fabulous accommodation, breathtaking views of lake

  • 5 of 5

Accommodation was top quality, very clean with modern furnishings. Breathtaking views of lake Como from living/ dining room & balcony, which is Sun trap. Steps down to picturesque village of Argegno which has friendly high quality cafes & restaurants. Catch the lake ferry or fast boat from Argegno to other resorts & villages on lake.(Stress free) highly recommended. Would definitely visit again. fab !

Amazing views, village and people

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was second to none. Spacious layout very tastefully decorated and all amenities easy accessible. Views of the Lake from the floor to ceiling glass doors breathtaking. Barrie and Julie made our experience one to never forget and we are eager to return soon to explore the Lake even more. Visits to the small fairytales villages around the Lake by boat or car are just a few minutes away. We visited Como a beautiful city using the ferry taxi which travels regularly for an enjoyable day and evening. Sooo looking forward to revisiting. You will find the apartment amazing.

Awesome Argegno!

  • 5 of 5

We have wonderful memories from our stay here and miss that view everyday! The people of Argegno were so welcoming and friendly and Barrie and Julie really helped us settle in. The apartment is very modern, spotlessly clean and has been very tastefully appointed and maintained. The village had all we needed with the ferry to reach touristy villages like Bellagio and Menaggio plus a good selection of restaurants serving local specialities, we especially liked the wild mushroom risotto in Barchetta and the aperitifo in Cafe Colombo each night where endless snacks arrived with our wine order. It took 3 minutes to walk down to the village so we hardly used our car and left us most of the week in our parking space. The pool at the lido in Argegno village came in handy for our kids when the weather was a little warm towards the end of the week. A little tip for holidaymakers, we booked direct with Barrie having read all the previous positive reviews which meant we made a big saving on the online booking service fee from the site . We would definitely recommend this home and plan to return in the summer.

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

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.
