Apartment | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 8
Are you imagining having a peaceful vacation on a mountainside with wonderful views of Lake Como and one of its most beautiful valleys? Look no further, you’ve found the perfect place.
The Villa del Sole is a brand new, premium apartment with panoramic views of Lake Como to the east and picturesque mountain and rural views of the 'Valle d’Intelvi,' one of the lake’s most beautiful valleys, . This 120 square metre ground floor apartment in a unique three apartment building provides a private 'getaway' for your family and friends in tranquil, 'whisper quiet' surroundings.
There are three bedrooms (one king, one queen, and two single beds), two bathrooms, air-conditioning, heating, satellite TV, lock-up garage, private splash pool (two and one--half metres by 4 and one-half metres), outdoor balcony, terrace and garden, all for private use for this apartment only. The building has a security gate and intercom. The large lounge has comfortable sofas and leads out onto the magnificent terrace with breathtaking views of the lake and valley. The owners have designed the apartment for relaxation and comfort--a perfect base to relax or explore.
Nature trails lead to old villages and classic Italian stone terraces nearby. The nearest town, Argegno, is in an excellent strategic position only four minutes drive away. It is easy to reach all the other towns on the lake by ferry, bus or car--you couldn't ask for a more convenient point.
This apartment is only a 20 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 25-minute drive away. 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 55 kilometres, one hour's drive (less to Milan International airport), 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 will a welcome book (provided in the apartment) with the local tours and suggested walking itineraries in the area, local information and suggested boat trips.

We personally meet you on arrival to show you around, explain how things work and make sure you are happy with everything.
The Lombardy 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.
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 are the managers of the Tourist office in Argegno and can help you organise tours, walks, winetasting, English speaking babysitters, 'in house chef', just ask and we will be happy to help.
