Hello Barrie and Julie, We just want to say thank you so much for the help you gave us during our stay in beautiful Lake Como. We had a wonderful holiday and loved the apartment. The views are to die for!! Best wishes to you both. June Marsden (Sept 2010)

Hello Julie and Barrie! It was nice meeting you in Argegno, even though very briefly. We enjoyed our stay there very much and so did our friends. The scenery is so breathtaking. This was the first time we rented a house and it really beats staying at a hotel. Fortunately we are enjoying nice and warm summer days here in Finland, too, so the returning wasn't quite so depressing. Best wishes to you both! Yours, Riitta and Jouni Röksä (July 2011).

A gem of a location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here having booked three homes in total for a family birthday celebration last month. This home was perfect for our family of six. Spacious with a lovely lake view and private garden to relax in. The home is approximately 8 minutes walk down to the village and restaurants but 10 minutes back up the hill so not for the elderly or unfit! We definitely felt fitter after our stay here. The village is quaint, old and charming with friendly locals and a good selection of restaurants, bars and shops. I think Argegno was a favourite as it definitely had that locals feel and felt less touristy than places like Bellagio and Menaggio which were nice to visit but overrun by Americans and Brits. Argegno certainly had a more italian vibe to the place with the local weekly market and cyclists arriving of a weekend to enjoy a coffee in the piazza. A special thank you to Julie for making our stay so special. We will be back!

Lovely family break

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic stay here at Caa Angela. A lovely family home located above Argegno. The home was spacious and comfortable for our family of six. With good wifi reception, a bathroom on each floor and private parking, the home proved to be excellent vallue for money. Argegno really is charming with nice restaurants and bars. bakery. fishmongers..wine bar, mini market and weekly market frequented by the local italian community which lent itself to offer an authentic italian atmosphere. We hired a car but mostly used the ferries and local taxi companies for transportation as the village was only a 10 minutes walk diown the hill and when feeling lazy to a cab up the hill to return to our home. Many an afternoon were spent relaxing in the garden and gazing at that view which we never tired of|! Will definitely return. Special thanks to Julie, our host, who made our trip extra special with her local knowledge and warm welcome on arrival.

Argegno...a hidden gem!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a wonderful time here in Argegno. We are so glad we chose this home and village recommended to us. The property was just as photogaphed and very spacious for our large family and we never tired of that view and spent many a balmy evening in our garden gazing at the changing light over the lake. Argegno was definitely our favourite village we spent time in as less touristy with a much more italian feel to the place than Bellagio and Menaggio which were over run with Brits and American tourists. Highlights included Luisas bakery in the village, Andrea at Cafe Colombo and Marios fruit and veg store. By the end of the week we felt we knew everyone in person and were accepted into our new friendly new italian family. Which we will miss! Special thanks to Julie who greeted us with such a warm welcome and was a real help to us when our luggage was delayed at the airport.

Stunning view terrace apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is on a quiet street, above the town, so we wouldn't recommend to be there without a car. Usage of a car is sometimes stressful as the streets are narrow and the parkings are very limited. Its possible to walk down to the town, but it takes good 15 minutes and its very-very steep, difficult even to go down! The town Argegno is very small but lovely and well connected by boat service to the pearls of lake area - Bellagio, Varenna, Lenno. You don't need to go to a restaurant for a dinner - the view from the terrace is breathtaking and it's very relaxing to watch the day ending and the night starting while having a slow dinner with italian wine. There is a small grocery store and a bakery in the town, big choice of fruit and vegetables on the market on Monday. Supermarket is quite far, on the way to Lenno. Be careful as all shops are closed for lunch till 3 or 4pm. Especially we would like to thank our hosts - Julia and Barry, they welcomed us very warmly, made our arrival very smooth despite the busy schedule and provided an excellent choice basket with some food essentials - bread, tomatoes, mozzarella, italian wine, etc. I would definitely recommend this place!

Wonderful stay at Casa Angela

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a fantastic week here in Argegno. The property was the perfect spot to enjoy a family get together. Spacious living which is immaculately presented and a private garden with bbq where we enjoyed many a balmy evening under the summer Sunshine! The views, it must be said are simply stunning and it was fantastic to wake up to the lake and gaze at the view from our bedroom balcony. The walk to the village took us 7 minutes and 10 minutes back up it on the way home, but we left fitter than when we arrived!! Special thanks to Julie. She could not have been more helpful meeting us on arrival in the village. showing us where to find the bakery, market, fish store and her favourite wine and cafe bars and pointing out the short cut down to the village. Her knowledge and service helped us settlle in easily and gave us a locals insight on the hidden gems around the village. I will definitely return to the lake and Argegno and as value for moneu goes would certainly stay here again. Thank you Julie!

Treasured memories of Lake Como

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful stay at Casa Angela. We were recommend to this home by our friends who stayed here a couple of years ago and were glad we took their advice to stay here in Argegno, a lovely authentic fishing village with friendly locals and a lovely italian atmosphere with a great italian feel to the place. Julie was the perfect host meeting us on arrival and ensuring you had settled in. Nothing was too much trouble for here whether reserving a restaurant table at the splendid Crotto dei Platini or organisng hiring a boat for a few hours in the village. Plus the welcome basket we requested on arrival with our favourite italian deli produce was very much appreciated on our arrival. The home itself was spacious, comfortable and with a view to die for. It was pleasing to see the property was exactly as advertised. Excellent wifi and a nice sized family kitchen. The home was perfect for the six of us with plenty of space inside and out.

We will treasure our evening spent eating and drinking local wine in the garden. Of course the view means there is a walk to the village of 10 minutes but we felt fitter after our weeks stay and used Andrea in Cafe Colombo if ever we fancied a taxi back home. Louisas bakery and the weekly market and minimarkets were ideal for shopping needs whilst a larger supermarket is Like our friends, i would not hesitate to recommend Argegno and this home and will definitely return.
