'Possibly the best break ever. Best location, flat, food and the fabulous hostess ever! Cinzia took the best care of us, will definitely be back.
Thank you for making our stay so enjoyable, a lovely place.Mr David, UK
Excellent restuarants in Village, recommend visit to Varenna. The best entertainment is sit on the balcony with a bottle of red wine and watch the firework displays from the towns along the lake! Kieron & Jo Thomas, UK.

Great find, this home! Friendly owner and excellent service from Italian Apartments would co ordinated the booking. The home is just a short walk to all amenities. Fantastic view, spacious accommodation, friendly locals and a great choice of restaurants and bars in the authentic village of Argegno. Would recommend this home for great value for money in Lake Como!
Cinzia is a delightful host and she was kind enough to wait up for us when we were delayed till very late driving from the airport.
Although the road is busy and sometimes a bit noisy, the apartment is fantastic. Big, clean, comfortable and with a lovely balcony with a great view. Argegno is a delightful village with nice bars and restaurants. You must have breakfast at the little cafe by the port... just a place to relax! Plenty to do and see in the area. We had a hire car but some days it lay idle as we used buses and ferries to get about! Will return!
Great flat, lovely village
We had a lovely time in Argegno which is a very picturesque village on lake Como. The apartment was great; spacious, comfortable and with wonderful views over the lake. The kitchen is small but well equipped and we cooked proper meals with produce bought in the village shops, including lake fish.
Cinzia is charming and very helpful. We were travelling without a car and she met us from the bus and ferried us up to the flat with our luggage. Our children (age 8 and 10) appreciated the football pitch just down the road. The walk into the village is less than 10 minutes but the first part is along a road with no pavement, so not suited to very young children.
We stayed three nights and found plenty to do. It's easy to get about, either by ferry or bus and there's a cable car in Argegno to the top of the mountain from where there are pleasant walks and amazing views.
Overall, highly recommended and thank you Cinzia for your warm welcome.
We enjoyed our stay in this reasonably-priced apartment. Cinzia gave us a very warm welcome and was on hand to help throughout the week. The apartment has views of the lake and the bedrooms are spacious and attractive. It is most suitable for a family as you have to walk through the twin bedroom to reach the double. We were very pleased with the location, being an easy walk from the cafes and ferry stop in Argegno. Lake Como is beautiful. We had free wi-fi in the apartment which we had not expected. Overall, we were very pleased with the holiday. Just a couple of negatives: the road outside the property was extremely noisy on the Saturday night (it didn't really bother us after that); and the kitchen is extremely small and basic.
Fantastic Village and Flat
I do not think I could ever do this flat, village, and hostess (Cinzia) justice but I will do my best. I went to Argengno with my three seventy year old Aunts, the start of ourEuropean tour. We instantly fell in love with the beautiful flat, with large clean bedrooms and spectacular views of beautiful lake Como. We were a very short walk into town(2-3 minutes), which all my Aunts found very easy. The village is magical and I intend to spend many holidays there to come. We spent the evenings on the large balcony, it was a very peaceful time just looking at the lake and the mountains. But as spectacular as this flat and village is, what really makes it the best flat/house I have ever rented is the hostess, Cinzia, she is wonderful- helpful, kind, funny, she makes you feel like you are at home. She was what really made our time amazing, the best part of our long trip to many great places. I cannot recommend this place enough, if you want a truly special place to stay, you have just found it!
Room with a view
We had a lovely stay in the Lakes. Cinzia and her family were very friendly and helpful. The apartment was clean but basic and not really suitable for two couples as you have to go though one bedroom to get to the bathroom and lounge area. The road outside the apartment is very busy and the walk to the village is quite steep so you need to be fit, but that's what gives you the views!!
Activity and Interests
Special interest holidays:
Painting, cookery courses available-ask for details.
Formula one in Monza-40 mins drive or take the train.
Football AC & Inter Milan-1 hour drive
3 minutes walk to the shingle beach in Argegno with a lido and pizzeria. 10 minutes drive north will take you to Lenno, a beautiful location with a man made sandy beach with restaurants and bars nearby. Boat hire is also available from here or from the village here in Argegno-please ask for details.
Milan Linate & Malpensa are 1 hour from the apartment.
For Bergamo add an extra 30 minutes. We are happy to advise which airlines fly to the local airports from the UK.
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 which is only a couple of minutes walk from the apartment.
30 minutes 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, alfresco dining and shopping for sumptuous Italian delicacies! 35 minutes to the Swiss border for designer outlets in Fox town. 50 minutes to Milan. 30 minutes to the lakeside town of Menaggio from where you can take a ferry to Bellagio.
You are quite literally spoiled for choice here in Lake Como.
From the pretty fishing village here in Argegno where you can relax by the shingle beach lido or take the cable car at Pigra for stunning views and wonderful photographic opportunities.
The village contains all amenities you should need for an enjoyable stay from bakery, fruit & veg shop, ice cream store, mini market, bank, restaurants and bars serving delicious food!
Choose from Villa Carlotta in Tremezzo (20 minutes by car). Beautiful gardens in many styles with lake views to die for! Don't forget to bring your camera.
Villa Serbollini in Bellagio with unrivalled panoramic views is a fantastic day out. Bellagio itself is always 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 (5 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)
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 we are happy to recommend for you both nearby in the village and further a field.
