CHECK WITH US FOR LAST MINUTE AUTUMN DEALS
We've called it VILLA PANORAMICA for a reason!!
Located on the top floor of a small, new house, built in the grounds of an 18th century villa, it is completely self contained and only minutes walk to the village.
Everything here is new, but fits in perfectly with the style of the houses built along the lake and in the mountains over the last centuries,with wood beam ceilings, teak floors in the bedrooms and Italian tiled kitchen, living area and bathrooms. (High chair and crib for small children are available, on request.)
Ideal for all types of holiday, winter and summer and for short weekend breaks and business Of course, there are many vacation rental apartments all around Lake Como, this is NOT a vacation rental, it is our apartment, created and furnished to be used year round and we take advantage of it ourselves, when we can. Although we live only 10 minutes drive away in the hills, we find it so relaxing here, just sitting on the terrace watching local life carry on in the village and on the lake.
Argegno is in an excellent strategic position. It is easy to reach all the other towns on the lake by ferry, bus and car, you couldn't ask for a more convenient point.
WIFI available and computor already set up in the apartment, A/C all included in the price.

The Lombardy / Lake Como Area region
Lake Como, surrounded by mountains, hills valleys and cities of art, has much to offer. It is situated in one of the most economically and industrially important regions (Lombardy) in Northern Italy, nestled between Lake Maggiore and Lake Garda, right on the Swiss boarder, framed by the majesty of the alps, where different cultures have merged over the centuries to form it’s unique and inimitable charm. We enjoy a varied climate, generally snowy winters, mild springs and warm summers, but being near the water, never too hot and then we have our mountains to escape to just in case.
The Argegno area
"Villa Panoramica" is only a 15 minute drive away from Cernobbio, the world famous hotel Villa D'este and the famous Villa Erba, where many exhibitions and trade fairs are held, the City of Como is a 20 minute drive away and of course Como is the silk capital of Italy, so there are many silk and textile factory outlets and shops in the town of Como.Milan is 50 kms, 1 hours drive, so it is also ideal for combining a holiday with the world famous 'Monza Grand Prix', or any other sporting or business events which you may wish to attend in Milan.
All travel information will be provided to guests enquiring about the apartment, as well as a welcome book (provided in the apartment) with the local tours and suggested walking itineraries in the area, local information and suggested boat trips.
It is also five minutes drive away from the "Villa Oleandra" the villa acquired from the Heinz family by George Clooney, and George has been spotted in Argegno often mixing with the local people.
The Villa Fontanella, once inhabited by Gianni Versacci is 10 minutes drive away.
Villa Panoramica is also ideal for those who do not want to be troubled with driving in Italy. The local bus stops directly below the villa and so does the local boat. There is also a public bus service from Milan Malpensa airport and Como is also well served by the international train service. We can also offer an excellent English speaking taxi driver service, which is available on request. Switzerland is also a short drive away, 45 minutes by car,in fact, Argegno sits at the foot of the 'valle Intelvi' a beautiful open valley which links Lake Como to Lake Lugano in Switzerland where you can find the City of Lugano, Campione D'italia, with it's famous "Casino" and lovely lake front walk.The famous 'Jet set resort of St. Moritz is a two hour drive away.
While spending a holiday on Lake Como, you will have the chance to see much more than you would expect.
You could explore its breathtaking surroundings, beautiful villas and picturesque villages…
You could compare it with the less well known but far from less beautiful Lake Orta and Lake Lugano…
You could visit the nearby cities, full of history and culture, such as Milan, Bergamo and of course Como the capital city of the Lake, just to mention a few…
You could slip into Switzerland and pay a visit to Campione D’Italia and its casino, or travel a little further and enjoy the nature in one of the jet-set ski resorts such as St. Moritz.
A trip into the northern mountains to try the local wine and enjoy a ride on the 'glacier express' train which is always a thrilling experience, winter or summer.
We can help you organise tours, walks, wine tasting, English speaking babysitters, 'in house chef', just ask and we will be happy to help.
