A short drive to the quintessential Italian town of Como. Guide books tell you it is famous for Italian silk, however, we prefer its lake front views, pretty piazzas, 600 old churches, gelato shops (nocciala is our favourite!), alfresco dining and shopping for sumptious Italian delicacies! 25 minutes to the Swiss border for designer outlets in Fox town. 45 minutes to Milan. 20 minutes to the lakeside town of Menaggio from where you can take a ferry to Bellagio.
Argegno offers the authentic lakeside experience where you will mix freely with the welcoming locals. This pretty fishing village is famous for it's authenticity as a local lakeside village unaffected and unspoilt by hoards of tourists. Visit the bakery for freshly made bread and cakes, Mario's fruit and veg
for the freshest seasonal ingredients or treat yourself to one of Zoe's delicious home made icecreams. The village is home to all amenities from bank to chemist, post office to cafes and bars not to mention a fine selection of resturants from fine dining to rustic italian fayre. Pensavo meglio ( wine bar ) is well worth a visit. Great wines!!
Out and about the lake, choose from Villa Carlotta in Tremezzo (20 minutes by car). Beautiful gardens in many styles with lake views to die for!
Villa Serbollini in Bellagio with unrivalled panoramic views is a fantstic day out. Bellagio itself is a favourite for holiday makers with it's cobbled streets and unbeatable views. Do not miss Villa Babinello in Lenno. If you wanted to propose to somebody I have yet to see a more romantic spot! Walk to the villa or take the private boat (6 euros) from Lenno lido (20 minutes by car from the apartment). The villa and it's majestic gardens overlook the rich blue waters of the lake. Simply divine. No wonder the new James Bond film was shot at this Villa! (May 2006) You can also relax on the golden sand beach at lido di lenno or take a dip in the lake.
Drive down to Cernobbio (15 minutes south of the apartment)
for an idyllic lakeside walk, a favourite past time of ours for a Sunday stroll. Menaggio, with it's palm lined walkways is another pretty lake village worth exploring. Many boat activities from windsurfing to sailing are available on the lake as well as other water sports.
Mountain bikes are also available for hire if you wish to venture into the vast mountains that surround the lake.
There are plenty of restaurants and places to visit we are happy to recommend.
Don't pay for your booking outside our website or app.
