About John Roberts
Myself and my wife Jules moved to Italy in May 2003. Our daughter Keelin was born in Como in May 2005 and she claims to be Italian..
We had our heart set on lake views and were fortunate to find the perfect villa for us. Stunning views and a short walk to the wonderfully quaint but lively village. We moved to Italy for professional reasons. I took up employment in Lugano, Switzerland. Thankfully I got a frontaliere visa and we availed of the best of both worlds, Swiss work and Italian living.
We adore Argegno and it's environs. It has a vibrant village and also there is lots to explore in Val D'Intelvi. I bought two apartments in Argegno in 2008 and we're hoping to spend lots more time there. However mortgages mean that we need to dream for the moment.

Why John Roberts chose Argegno
Two words - vista and location. Amazing location, with a swimming pool and only two minute walk to the village.
Lake Como and Argegno are relatively well hidden jewels. They are in central Europe, yet in a quiet and beautiful location with so many things to do.

Perfect base for exploring lake como
Argegno is one of the nicest villages along the lake. Not too crowded and touristy but with a good choice of restaurants and a really nice atmosphere and very pretty. The apartment was perfect. We had two decent bedrooms, a large sitting room with well supplied kitchen and bathroom. We had our own garden and the pool pretty much to ourselves. Would definitely recommend and would go back ourselves.
Beautiful views and fantastic location
Excellent location. Amazing views from the apartment. Loved the walk to the bakery, grocery store and resteraunt. Will definitely come back.
Lovely apartment with stunning views
A lovely village with everything you need close to hand, the pictures don't do the apartment views justice, they are breathtaking. The pool is small but plenty big enough to keep our 3 children entertained after days out exploring the local area. We had a great holiday and would definitely recommend it.
Great views, great location, great apartment
2 bed Apartment on via Salita Brenta
Dates June 14th-17th 2016
John met us in person to drive us to the property. After a long day traveling, this was much appreciated. John was helpful in showing us around the apartment and giving directions to the key points in town. The apartment is a short (5 min) walk up the hill from the centre of Argegno. This gives some great views and is nice and quiet, being set back from the main road. Although we didn't use it, there is parking.
The apartment it's self is modern and spacious with two comfortable bedrooms. The kitchen is well equipped, but there's also a great selection of restaurants close by. The main kitchen/dining room has fantastic views over the lake and opens onto a small balcony for breakfast in the sun. Only small note, we would have preferred a bath and shower in the bathroom.
The apartment has use of a nice pool and sun terrace.
For our first visit to the lake, Argegno was a great location. Big enough to be serviced by the slow and fast ferries, plenty of food and drink options. But not too busy with people or traffic.
We're hoping to return again next year.
The views from the flat were amazing! I agree with another review that the pictures does not do it justice. It is truly breathtaking! We loved sitting out at night and waking up to that spectacular view. It was a great flat for a family and we loved the pool. Though it is a communal pool, we typically had it all to ourselves. It is such a quick walk to town and we loved the access to restaurants, gelato and small shops. Also easy just to hop on the ferry and go discover the rest of the lake. I would highly recommend this flat.
Family Holiday at the Garden Apartment, The Bunda.
We had a really lovely family holiday here, very relaxing. Argegno was the perfect spot to explore the Lake and your accommodation was very comfortable and clean, with amazing lake views. The pool was a big hit with the kids and we spent many an afternoon relaxing there. Our personal highlights of the holiday were:
Exploring Como and its hidden squares in the evening
Ferry trips across the lake
Bellagio & Mennagio
Day trip to Milan by train (so easy!)
My sneaky morning cappuccino in the village whilst telling the family I was shopping for bread!
Paola who met us on our arrival was lovely - very helpful and friendly. We will definitely return to the Lakes for another holiday in the future and will be in touch when we do.

“Two words - vista and location. Amazing location, with a swimming pool and only two minute walk to the village. Lake Como and Argegno are relatively well hidden jewels. They are in central Europe, yet in a quiet and beautiful location with so many things to do.”
Activity and Interests
The village of Argegno has it's own private 'lido' or beach area (2 minutes walk from the apartment) where you can rent sun loungers and umbrella shades for very little. This means you can enjoy the lake and /or the private pool area of the apartment.
Milan Airport Malpensa 40 mins. Milan Airport Linate 1 hour. Milan Airport Bergamo 1 hour 20 mins. All airports have rail links to Milan. Trains run frequently to Como town from Milan with regular bus service to Argegno. Car hire recommended as there is so much to see.
The apartment is a 2 minute walk from the vibrant village (rated the best village on lake Como!) of Argegno and about 15 minutes by bus or boat from the city of Como. There are many rustic lake villages (like Bellagio, Menaggio) which are very short distances by boat, bus or car from Argegno. Argegno is a 35 minute drive from the famous designer outlet mall called Foxtown just across the border in Switzerland.
The village of Argegno has many excellent restaurants to choose from, making sure you can eat at different restaurants almost every night of the week. This being Italy, it is very difficult to be disappointed by the culinary quality. There are at least 2 very trendy and friendly pubs for a pre or post dinner drink/s. There are 2 banks (with ATM machines), one small supermarket/shop, an authentic Italian ice cream shop, a bakery where one can enjoy freshly baked bread, croissants every day, butcher, fruit shop, hairdresser, wellness centre and tabacci (to purchase cigarettes). Visit Villa Carlotta and see it's beautiful gardens in many styles. Villa Serbollini in Bellagio with unrivaled panoramic views is a fantastic day out. Bellagio itself is a perennial favourite for holiday makers with it's cobbled streets and unbeatable views. Do not miss Villa Balbianello in Lenno as featured in the 007 James Bond Casino Royale movie. Walk to the villa or take the private boat (5 euros) from Lenno lido (15 minutes by car from the apartment) with golden sandy man made beach. The villa and it's majestic gardens overlook the deep waters of the lake. Drive down to Cernobbio (15 minutes south of the villa) for an idyllic lakeside walk. Menaggio, with it's palm lined promenade 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. Sant Anna and La Griglia nearby serve superb seasonal and regional cuisine with excellent wine lists and are just a 5 minute drive from the apartment. Argegno village is full of excellent restaurants from fresh lake fish (Emilio's), pizza (La Corte), Barchetta-typical local cuisine and upmarket dining at La Piazetta.
