** We stayed here for a fabulous week in July 2014 to celebrate our mother's 90th birthday. The amenities were wonderful, and the floor plan was perfect for our group. The elevator access and parking availability also was wonderful. The perfectly equipped kitchen was much appreciated by the gourmets in the group.

Although we did not understand this when we booked the Vele, the location in the town was wonderful, with ready access to ATM, ferry, bus, restaurants, bakery, grocery. The cable car across the street also was nice, and of course, the views were spectacular.

From Milan's Central train station or Malpensa airport, it is easy to take the train to the city of Como, and then catch the ferry or bus to Argegno.

This stylish apartment comes highly recommended by our group of finicky travelers! Buon viaggio.

The Lombardy region

The Italian Lakes are a little slice of paradise. Elegant ribbons of blue water stretch out ahead, folded into the sun-baked foothills, with a spectacular back drop of the snow-capped Alps.

Lake Como offers hidden treasures just waiting for the visitor to discover them: charming corners forgotten by time, lakeside villages where nothing seems to have changed for centuries.

It is steeped in history with an immense collection of churches, architectural masterpieces and works of art covering the centuries. The lake is situated in a basin surrounded by wooded mountains, and offers an extremely varied landscape, with its' shores featuring a succession of pastures, and woods as well as harsh and impressive rock formations.

All this alongside elegant, lakeside villas with sub-tropical gardens, which provide a haven of peace and tranquillity and chic resorts such as Varenna, Bellagio, Menaggio and Como itself.

Warming, in spriing and graced with natural beauty, the lakes are still a place to draw breath and wonder. Lake Como, oriented north-south, ringed by characterful old villages often wedged onto narrow beaches between rugged cliffs and water. Those classic lake images of flower strewn balconies, Baroque gardens and splendid waterside villas can be found here in abundance. Dotted around and between the lakes are some of Italy's finest art cities, such as Milan, Verona & Bergamo.

The most romantic and picturesque villages on the lake are Santa Maria Rezzonico, Varenna (15 min by ferry) & Bellagio (8 min by ferry), Lenno (visit Villa Balbianello, location for 007's Casino Royale as well as Villa Gaeta, right here in Menaggio) & Laglio (where George Clooney owns Villa Oleandra).

Argegno

Guests can either choose to fully indulge in the luxury tranquillity of this stunning lakeside retreat or can explore the fascinating historical resort town of Argegno, with its steep and enchanting cobbled streets, its beautiful surrounding scenery and its fantastic cafes, wine bars and highly recommended restaurants such as La Piazzetta all on the door step.

A frequent bus and passenger ferry service operates from the town and the lakeside road provides the perfect way in which to enjoy a scenic lakeside drive to the central lake attractions, activities and famous resort towns, including L’Isola Comacina, Villa Balbianello, Villa Carlotta and Menaggio.

Local activities include sunbathing and swimming at the Lido di Argegno which is just a short walk away, or at the Lidos in Lenno or Menaggio, power boat hire with a private dedicated boat space, sailing, tennis, golf, adventure days on the Bellagio hillside and cultural day trips to Como city and the famous visitor-friendly resort towns.

This picturesque and ancient village is crossed by the Telo stream which splits into two parts, after falling down from a the towns ravine. The two are joined by an old stone bridge with a lancet arch.From Argegno, it is possible to take a cable car up to Pigra (881 mts.), which is situated on a plateau that enjoys 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 after following this road for about about 16 km, you will arrive at Lanzo.

The best way to appreciate Argegno is to walk up one of the narrow lanes. Most are paved with intersecting fan pattern of small square stones typical in much of the area. This area is almost entirely residential but the walkways are impeccably maintained with potted red geraniums and colourful flowers contrasting with the ancient brickwork and facades.
