Lake Como area villa
We loved this villa in Argegno. It had breathe taking view from the terrace of Lake Como. 10 min walk to town down steep stairs. We got our workout coming up the stairs every night. We did not rent a car so we walked or took bus or ferrys to other towns. It is very doable. We went to Como and Bellagio. The food and wine in Argegno was excellent. We were not able to meet our host due to a family emergency but he took care of our check in with a kind neighbor who spoke only Italian but we managed to figure it out. Overall great experience. We would highly recommend staying in Argegno and at this villa.
Lake Como Vacation
As an American, I probably would not recommend staying in an apartment. I was surprised when I was met with a request to pay for my stay in cash. Americans don’t trade in euros so to expect a payment for accommodation and cash was a bit unrealistic. I found the apartment cold and difficult to warm up, and we had to climb 254 stairs down to the town. In this particular case, we had very little warm water. Hot water was almost nonexistent. I think this works better for a European.
Dear customer we suggest all our guests to pay the balance before their arrival. If this doesn't happen we are unable to accept a credit card upon arrival. However, you can’t expect to pay everything with a credit card just because you are an American. The apartment you used is new and fully functional, this implies (unlike hotels) the ability to interact with any type of appliances, including a thermostat. If you had problems to do it, you should have contacted me during your stay and not to declare this as a malfunction.
Finally, I think your thoughts on which customers would be indicated to use an apartment are strictly personal. Americans or Europeans: anyone are welcome.
Lovely spacious apartment
We enjoyed our stay in this spotlessly clean, spacious apartment. The furniture was comfortable and the huge covered balcony provided ample outdoor space with glorious views over the Lake. The apartment was well equipped although I would have liked an ironing board and a dishwasher, but as we ate out all the time (apart from breakfast) this really didn't spoil our stay. Situated in a quiet residential street, the apartment is just a 5 minute walk down hill to the main square (with several good restaurants) and the Lake, from where we were able to catch the boat to other towns and villages around the Lake. The climb back up to the apartment took about 15 minutes with frequent stops to catch our breath!
Pierpaolo gave us a charming welcome. We will certainly return to this property if we visit the area again, which we probably will!
Lovely Clean Apartment with fantastic views of the lake.
Enjoyed our stay in this lovely apartment in Argegno.
The apartment is exactly as shown in the pictures, and was clean, tidy and ready for us when we arrived. The place is equipped with everything you need for your stay.
Plenty of parking in the garage below the building so we left the car there and were able to use the bus and ferries to get around.
The restaurants and bars of Argegno are within easy walking distance, as are the bus and ferry stops, even if the walk back to the apartment is a little on the steep side.
Would recommend this as a good place to enjoy the beautiful Lake Como.
Room with a view!
The apartment had an an absolutely amazing view. A warm welcome from Pierpaolo - clean and well organised apartment to ensure a relaxed and carefree stay. Ideal location for exploring the area. Argegno is a lively little town with good bus and ferry connections to ther places of interest around the lake. Range of cuisine available from a simple panini to haute cuisine. This is the place for bella vista and dolce vita!
The steps up from the town will provide your daily workout!
We LOVED this apartment. It was spacious, clean and well equipped. The view over the lake from the large terrace was spectacular. Would highly recommend it. The steep walk up from town is not for the faint hearted but well worth it. Argegno is a gem!
Directly with car and private parking.
Possibility to take the boat and visit other countries as the typical village Bellagio, Menaggio, Lenno, Varenna etc. important visit to Bellagio sits on one of the most beautiful promontories in the world! A well-known casino in Las Vegas called "Bellagio". Tours to Lugano and St. Moritz (Switzerland) with its Casino of Campione d'Italy and Lugano. Visit the old town of Como, surrounded by its ancient walls, where you can give free rein to your shopping among many local craft shops as silk. (foulards and ties) Do not forget to enjoy all the local cuisine of Lake Como with fish and meat. On Lake Villa Carlotta deserve special attention, you will appreciate the sculpture by Antonio Canova: Cupid and Psyche, and the huge botanical garden filled with plants and flowers from around the world.
Enjoy your stay in Lake Como
