The Lombardy region
Italian life around the lake starts very early (the local bakery is usually sold out of most of its bread by nine thirty) and ends quite early with dinner starting at about 7and bars closing around midnight. Also everywhere is very child friendly. Getting your timing right is very important as most shops close from 12.30 until 3 and most restaurants finish serving lunch at 2 with not another bite to be got until about 5 when they fire up their pizza ovens. There is a small shop in the village where you can get most of the basics but I suggest you go to in Bennet Shopping Centre in Como Nord where there is a very large supermarket which will cater for all of your needs.
With regard to place to visit top priority is a slow ferry on the lake to anywhere!
Best places are Bellagio (a must for lunch), Menaggio, and Como lakefront (also great for shopping with a flea market on Thursday mornings and all day Saturday).
You must visit some of the villas with the most popular being Villa Carlotta this has beautiful gardens and is open to the public.
Villa Balbainello is another beautiful villa to visit. It now has a new next-door neighbor – Virgin boss Richard Branson.
Of course Switzerland is only 30 mins drive away and Lake Lugano is well worth a visit. A trip to St Moritz (1.5 hrs) will certainly be one of the highlights of your trip. I do hope this is of some help to you and don't hesitate to ask any more questions that you may have.
The most important thing is to enjoy 'La Dolce Vita' with a glass of vino on the balcony.
We are located about 4 mins drive away from the heart of the village with narrow cobbled lanes and archways, past the local panifico with aromas of freshly baked bread and leaving you in the middle of the Piazza where you can get fantastic ice cream made on the premises at Zoë's. The village has a small mini market to provide you with all the basics .There is a bank with international cash machine, a small harbor with marina, fishing tackle shop, cable-car station ,to take you into the mountains to the village of Pigra where you can have the experience of Como from the sky (cable cars run every half hour with a break from 12- 2). The village has its own pebble beach with an adjoining pizzeria where you can hire sun loungers etc. or fish to your heart's content. There is a small food market in Argegno on Monday mornings where you can get fresh meat, fish veg and locally produced cheeses. There are numerous small bars in the village and a fantastic selection of restaurants and snack bars and in the surrounding areas (La Grillia 2km up the road that the property is on,is one of our favorites with great value in a beautiful rustic Italian setting). Cafe Colombo is a tiny beautiful wine bar in the corner of the square with Italian 'tapas' and snacks available all day and a great Happy Hour (Free antipasti )at night. .There is a new restaurant, recently opened in the village piazza beside the fountain, called La Piazzetta which serves a wide selection of food from pizza (best in Argegno) to fine dining i.e. fresh tuna tar. The owner Christian is very nice and will try to cater for all your dining needs. Others restaurants we recommend are, Villa Belvedere, beside the ferry port and Crotto dei Platini (3 mins down the road towards Brienno). These are situated on the Lake with fantastic food in a magical setting. A delightful new wine bar Enotica Argegno is only recently opened with a fantastic range of good wines available very cheaply. This also serves free antipasti in the evening.
The village lies on the main lakeside road and therefore is on the main bus route up and down the lake .It also has a ferry port stop for passenger ferries (both slow ferry and hydrofoil) and these are a great way of seeing the lake which is at its best when viewed from the water. You can get daily rambler tickets so you can hop on and off at your leisure.
