The Lombardy region
Lake Como is situated within Lombardy home also to Milan the fashion capitol of the world, Bergamo with its majestic squares & medieval churches & Monza for grand prix lovers! However if you are searching for something more serene Lake Como is a haven for tranquility.For years young & old have visited Lake Como and returned home refreshed, ivorigated and bewitched by its unparallelled beauty.
People arrive here for the serene atmosphere, bewitching views and relaxed lake living (not to mention world renowned cuisine).
Switzerland (30 mins to border) home of Fox town for cut price designer fashion, Lake Lugano and San Moritz for memorable drives and skiing all make for an enjoyable day out.
Full recommendations given on request or with each booking.However customers return again and again to here in Argegno due to the welcoming locals and sleepy pace of life that engulfs you and leaves you hungry for more I first visted the lake 6 years ago and bought this apartment on my very first visit-it was love at first sight. Six years later i have made lake como my home, leaving the Uk for good such was the pull of good food and wine, scenery, sunshine and chilled out lake side living.I hope to help you find your little haven for relaxation here in Lake Como too!
For those who just wish to take in the sun and relax or just go for a lazy stroll to walk of that lunchtime gelato then Lake Como offers the perfect holiday to achieve a relaxing chill out break.
Argegno itself offers everything you could hope for in a typical italian village.From geletaria and bakery to fruit and veg store to minimarket all conveniences are catered for.Cafe culture, restaurants serving local specialities, ferry, bus service, lake side walks and a warm welcome from the locals! Here you can mix with the local italians who will help provide you with an authentic lakeside adventure sampling real lombaridan food (risotto is a favourite) and a relaxed approach to life is infectious to the point of helping you unwind and uncharge your batteries!
We provide detailed information on the area including details of places to visit and our favourite restaurants for
all our clients to help you get the most out of your stay!
Mountaineering enthusiasts will enjoy the val d'intelvi hills and mountains situated close to the apartment.
However for holidaymakers who like to explore there is plenty of variation on offer from visiting medieval churches to browsing at the many italian boutiques in nearby Como town famed for it's silk and leather, talking a boat ride for a spot of dinner on one of the many lakeside villages to climbing the mountains high above the lake!
Choose from Villa Carlotta, 20 minutes from the apartment with it's acres of beautiful lake facing gardens, Villa Balbinello in Lenno (15 minutes drive)for romance and relaxation (James Bond seemed to favour the latter in the recent Casino Royale production filmed here in 2006)
Bellagio never fails to dissapoint and offers a great excuse to take the water ferry across the lake. Marvel at it's picturesque promontories, cobbled streets and fine art shops all with lake views par excellence.
Drive down to Cernobbio for an idyllic sunday afternoon stroll. Menaggio, with it's pretty palm lined walkways it another pretty lake village worth exploring.

"Fabulous but disappointing!"
I was tempted to give this apartment 4 stars and it could have been 5 if it wasn't for a few things that were disappointing.Firstly I want to make clear that we loved staying here. The view (what… More
Thanks for your email Bill. I am glad you enjoyed your stay overall. I would like to respond to some of the comments raised. We do ask customers and state on the booking email to contact us 1 hour prior to arrival to enable us to arrive at the meeting point on time for you. When you called us you were already in Argegno hence the delay reaching you. I think you misunderstood the message re shutters as we tell every customer on arrival to close the shutters when not in use to help keep the home cool when out and about and then to pin shutters back when at home. The reason for this is to ensure the shutters do not flap about if windy and break so affixing to the wall as demonstrated on arrival is a very quick process which ensures the shutters are protected.
We have lived in Italy for close to 7 years so we are well aware what and why shutters are used so would not expect guests to leave closed aall week!! The lawn ahead of the home belongs to a neighbour so this does not belong to us. The view of the lake you can see clearly. Towels are provided on arrival and extra towels were made available. This is a self catering apartment so we do not supply an unlimited amount hence the washing machine. I am surprised at your comments regarding the ktichen especially as none of these issues were raised during your stay or on departure. The photo on advert is 1 year old and the kitchen still looks like new with a matching set and compliment of plates, glasses and dishes.
We have sharpened the knives, thanks for bringing this to our attention. In future, Bill, if you had mentioned this at the time we always seek to address issues immediately so you can enjoy the home with the maximum comfort.
The Regarding the restaurant you reserved, it is always difficult recommending dining out for customers as what one guest would consider excellent value and quality another would differ (the same as in any line of business) Having said that we eat out each week and like the majority of guests love The Crotto and we are passionate about good food and wine (see our restaurant tips here)
Perhaps if you did not mention the discount at the time of settling the bill if you contact the restaurant i am sure they will honour this for you as perhaps they were not aware you were our guests as very busy at peak time of the year. And yes we also like The food at The Piazetta so recommend this to other guests!
Many thanks for your feedback once more Bill.

Hi Becky, Julie here.
Glad you had a great time and a safe journey home and the weather was largely kind. It takes me only 8 minutes walk up the hill from the village with an icecream in tow and understand it will take a little longer with a buggy to negotiate so glad was all ok (the drive for guests is 3 to 4 minutes only) We provide for all guests toilet roll and washing up liquid plus dishwasher tablets, for additional items, as a self catering apartment, guests normally provide their own. We love the Crotto and are glad you too enjoyed the experience. You are welcome back any time!
