The Lake Como region

Lake Como has been famous and popular for centuries, due to its unrivalled beauty. It is still popular today for many more reasons: It is within striking distance of many interesting places - Milan, Monza, St Moritz and Lugano, to name just a few. It offers something for every type of holidaymaker from the sporty to chill-out to culture-vulture with water sports, golf, horse-riding, stunning villas and historic churches, shopping to die for (ask for our designer outlet guide), wine tastings, gourmet restaurants and some of the best pizzas you will ever taste at only €4 for a pizza margarita, you can't go wrong! It is also home to the island of Comacina and one of the most famous restaurants on the Lake, visited by everyone from Eisenhower to Clooney.

Argegno

Argegno, 20km from Como.

A popular destination for tourists, Argegno is situated in a large inlet on the western shore of Lake Como at the mouth of the Val d’Intelvi. It has a pleasant climate and is mild even in the winter months. With its’ beautiful panoramic location, one can see from the headland of Bellagio to the north and as far as Nesso towards the south. Argegno offers a surprising amount of facilities for a quaint lakeside fishing village – 5 good restaurants/pizzerias, 2 excellent wine bars (Enoteca and Bar Colombo), serving free snacks at aperitivo time every day.

Argegno offers a surprising amount of facilities for a quaint lakeside fishing village – 5 good restaurants/pizzerias, 2 excellent wine bars (Enoteca and Bar Colombo), serving free snacks at aperitivo time every day. There are 2 banks with cash points and a small store. And you won’t be able to resist Andrea’s home-made ice creams (made with whatever is available fresh that day, including cucumber!). The scent of the bakery will draw you up the narrow alleyways to find fresh brioche (croissants) and bread, baked daily on the premises by Louisa. Buy fresh vegetables from Mario and ask him for one of his superb recipes – always served with smile and he speaks excellent English. If that wasn’t enough, the village also now boasts a beautician and 2 hairdressers!

Argegno is also within striking distance of all Lake Como’s treasures, as it is a main bus and ferry stop-off point for the rest of the lake. Villa Balbianello (Star Wars & James Bond) is just around the corner, Villa Carlotta a short ferry ride away, as are Bellagio, Menaggio and Varenna – get a centre lake ticket and visit all three in one day. The village is certainly of Roman origin, as it owes its’ name to the consul Publio Cesio Archigene. At one time Argegno was part of a defensive system, which extended as far as the ancient villa of Lenno and the Isola Comacina to obstruct the passage of invaders.

At one time Argegno was part of a defensive system, which extended as far as Lenno and the Isola Comacina to obstruct the passage of invaders. The ancient centre of the village is very picturesque. It is crossed by the Telo stream and is divided into two parts, which are joined by an old stone bridge with a lancet arch.

It is possible to take a cable car up to Pigra (881 m), which is situated on a plateau with a beautiful view of the lake. From here it is possible to go on to the Valle della Camoggia, which is in the oasis of Argegno-Cima della Duaria, a conservation area. The road which runs along Val d’Intelvi also starts from Argegno and about 15 km along it one comes to Lanzo.

Things to see:

The Sanctuary of Sant’Anna: This was built in the seventeenth century but it was subsequently renovated. Inside one can find stuccowork and frescoes from the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries.

The Oratory of San Rocco in Pigra: Built in the fifteenth century, it contains frescoes from 1662 signed by S. Pozzi.

"Comfortable apartment with magic view of Lake Como"

I stayed here with my family, husband, two teenage sons and a daughter with boyfriend for three days i September. The apartment is comfortable and has a large balcony with a fantastic view of the Lake Como. The steep road to the villa was no problem. You can walk to Argegno in 20 min (downhill) and take a taxi back if you do not want to drive. The pool was beautiful and the area very quiet. Argegno is a good starting point for exploring Lake Como. We would love to com back!

Thank you for your review. We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay with us and enjoyed the surrounding areas as well. We look forward to seeing you again soon. You would be most welcome!

"Beautiful location"

We had a lovely holiday in such a beautiful location. Perfect views do the lake and surrounding mountains, lots of things to do around the lake, lovely Italian towns to explore by boat or by car.

The apartments were lovely too even down to the neighbour...a donkey we nicknamed Dominic! It was blissful to sit outside in the evenings overlooking the lake and the kids loved the pool.

The drive up to the apartment was a bit tricky with the steep hills, but I would not have like to try and walk it. Definitely needed a car, but as we drove fromEngland this wasn't an issue. Buses and boats run frequently so if you don't have a car it's still lovely, just need to make sure you have the energy for the steep climb home!

Beverley and Jonny were really helpful giving us ideas about where to go and what to do and booking restaurants for us when we ate out.

We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay. We do everything we can to ensure that our guests enjoy their time on Lake Como. We look forward to welcoming you again to this beautiful Lake in the near future.

"Beautiful views, nice pool and good apartment."

The team were lovely and helpful(great tip for a fantastic dinner down the road). Excellent folder in the apartment providing information on Italy, Como and plenty of things to do. The folder was a great help when planning trips. The apartment has a good size for a family of four. Having the pool was great too. Quite a drive up the narrow lanes but the views more than make up for that. Gelateria is very good and restaurants in Argegno are good too. For shopping in a supermarket you need to drive a while but it can easily be done after a visit to another town and sightseeing. What we liked best: views!! pool, remoteness, big garden, surroundings(Lake Como)
What we liked least: price (high season though in August), craftsmanship in some areas
Would we come back? Yes!
Thank you Beverley and Jonathan

We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay. We do everything we can to ensure that our guests enjoy their time on Lake Como. We look forward to welcoming you again to this beautiful Lake in the near future.

"Super!"

Just returned from our summer vacation at Lake Come for the fourth year in a row. As always, it fascinating to be staying in the mountains and the pictures Lake Como is just breath taking. No more – no less.

Apart from some difficulties in actually getting in contact with the property-leasing agency to arrange for picking up the keys for the apartment when arriving to Argegno, apparently caused by somewhat poor mobile coverage in the area, which caused some concern to the family and approx. one hour of waiting, our stay was very successful. Not only did the agent meet us to personally take us to the apartment and make sure that everything was as agreed, unlike other agents we have used in the region, the agent also responded instantly to the very few requests we had during our one week of stay. Excellent service.

The flat was nice, clean, modern and well kept and the same applies for the garden (we were staying at the ground floor) and the pool area. Moreover, the view from the terrace, garden and pool area was just brilliant.

The only concern we would like to add would be that the driveway to the apartment is quite narrow and really, really steep. Don't drive too large a car if you generally are concerned about driving in the mountains. Also, as the flats are neighboring a small farm with a few animals (two donkeys and some chickens), you will from time to time be able to smell nature..… But quite enjoyable for everybody.

Agent and property highly recommended!

We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay. We do everything we can to ensure that our guests enjoy their time on Lake Como. We look forward to welcoming you again to this beautiful Lake in the near future.

"Stunning location with a view that takes your breath away"

A breathtaking location with a magnificent view of Lake Como and surrounding mountains that fill you with awe. Set close to the gorgeous village of Agegno winding up the mountainside is this gorgeous new complex of apartments and villas with 2 swimming pools. We travelled with a large extended family group of over 25 people and we were easily accommodated. The apartments and villas were all really well equipped with lovely kitchens, washing machines, dishwashers etc.
Can't wait to plan our return visit!

We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay with your extended family. For your next trip, you could book Villa Lilla as well as Villa Rosa and accommodate even more people, with 3 pools for your exclusive use!

As you know we do everything we can to ensure that our guests enjoy their time on Lake Como. We look forward to welcoming you again to this beautiful Lake in the near future.

"A delightful place to stay in a brilliant location !"

Very nicely decorated, comfortable rooms and well stocked kitchen. Quiet and secluded with a fantastic lake-side view from above. Our hosts, Beverley and Jonathan, could not have been more welcoming and helpful. Shopping en route from Malpensa airport at Como town's Bennet hypermarket was very useful - then top up at local markets and shops during the week. Our Fiesta was the biz for the narrow streets of this village and all around Como. Don't go for a big car.
Highly recommend the Greenway walk, the Villas and spectacular gardens of Carlotta and Balbianello. Also hiring a speedboat is a fantastic way to see the lake and the villas - truly spectacular. The ferries are great too.

We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay. We do everything we can to ensure that our guests enjoy their time on Lake Como. We look forward to welcoming you again to this beautiful Lake in the near future.

"Fabulous break in excellent apartment on Lake Como"

The apartment is in a very special spot with stunning views down over the lake and landscape. Spotlessly clean, comfortable, airy, well-equipped and the hosts could nor have been more friendly, welcoming and helpful.
I'd never been to Lake Como before and absolutely loved it. The scenery and lake are breathtaking, ferry travel very relaxing and the villages around the shore packed with history, culture, coffee, gardens...
An excellent and memorable break.

We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay. We do everything we can to ensure that our guests enjoy their time on Lake Como. We look forward to welcoming you again to this beautiful Lake in the near future.

"Perfect holiday"

The view is stunning! Service was perfect! Own pool in hot July excellent! Argegno is very small, but there were enough services, for example fresh bread every morning. Nice morning excercise to get fresh bread from the village.

Thank you for your review. We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay with us. Hopefully you will come again next year.
