Argegno apartment description
AVAILABILITY FROM 14TH AUGUST 20% DISCOUNTS ON ALL AVAILABLE DATES
Situated in a prominent and elevated position, just above the delightful village of Argegno, on the western shores of Lake Como, you will enjoy breathtaking, panoramic views of Bellagio, Comacina Island and the 'Balbianello' promontory (DO NOT miss a visit to the Villa Balbianello during your stay.)
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 although only minutes walk to the village, is very secluded.
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, ceramic floors throughout and Italian tiles in the kitchen, and bathrooms. (High chair and crib for small children are available.
6 people can sleep here comfortably and lucky who sleeps in the sofa bed, you will wake up to stunning views of the sunrise over the mountains across the lake.
The 2 bedrooms and bathrooms are seperated from the living area by a sliding glass door. There is a TV in each bedroom.
The bedrooms are large and comfortable, with spacious mirrored closets, one has an en-suite bathroom and the other has the other bathroom, with jacuzzi tub, right outside the door.There is satelite TV, DVD, surround music system and a variety of CDs and DVDs for you to enjoy, while relaxing and taking in the views.
Ideal for all types of holiday, winter and summer and for short weekend breaks and business trips.
Of course, there are many vacation rental apartments all around Lake Como, this is NOT a vacaation 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 stratigic position. It is easy to reach all the other towns on the lake by ferry, bus and car, you couldn't aske for a more convenient point.
'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 will a welcome book (provided in the apartment) with the local tours and suggested walking itineries 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.

My husband and I stayed hear for 4 nights in late September 2011. It wa all and more tha we expected. The house is beautiful and the views are priceless and stamped in my memory. The resturants in town are great...rissotto with chestnuts, spaghetti ilario and Silvios in Bellaggio- fantastic. Silvana is a wonderful person, firndly warm and full of ideas, She added to our experience. We took day trips to nearby small towns and other Lakes. We loved it here and would reccommend it without reservation. I wish I was on the terrace right now Thank you, Silvana

There are enough words to describe Villa Panoramica. It was one of the best places my wife and I have ever stayed in. The apartment was very comfortable, clean and was everything if not more than the description in the VRBO listing. The view from the terrace was very stunning. Sylvania and her husband were wonderful hosts. I would highly recommend to anyone who plans on visiting Lake Como.

Best place ever!
Best place ever!
We spent 5 nights here this past July (2011) and it is everything we thought it would be. The house is wonderful, the views are unbelievable and the relaxation we had was well-needed. I can't wait to go back. Silvana is a great host and she really helped us, especially with a very rainy check in day. But the weather cleared up for the rest of the trip. If you go, we highly recommend the lunch cruise around the lake. It leaves around 1 pm and you take it from Argegno. It was a feast for only 15.50 euros. In summary, we all LOVED Villa Panoramica!

Absolutely amazing gem of a holiday haven!
Absolutely amazing gem of a holiday haven!
Villa Panoramica was one of the best holidays we have ever had! The photos don't do justice to the view from the wide patio where you can sit all day and evening just taking in the Lake and its activity. Silvana has thought of many home comforts to make your stay easier such as UK cable TV for the kids and a laptop and WiFi for the teenagers and adults. The walk from the village is steep but a fabulous little work-out each day. My 80 year old mother managed to do it twice each day for a week so it is very achievable. Argegno is a little gem of a town and the people were all so friendly and happy to engage in conversation or help you out. Picturesque but not too touristy. Look out for the local produce market on Mondays and get your fruit, cheese ( ohmiword - the cheese!), meat and veggies for the week. Make sure you take in Zoe's Gelateria in the village for amazing ice-cream especially the Licorice. One of the real treats was, in our opinion, Italy's best coffee at Hotel Argegno opp the ferry station right on the waterfront. Their meals and pizzas are fabulous too but Daniella and the team make hot, creamy coffees to die for! A great family apartment, neat and clean with modern bathrooms and plumbing. Loads of room to entertain and eat all meals outside. The a/c was also very convenient for some of the extreme weather we encountered this July and very few rentals places offer that. Silvana was very helpful and welcoming and ready to give you a hand with whatever you need. Such a sweetheart! Her husband, Luigi runs a car service which we used from Milan with lovely vehicles and very safe driving to transport the family. Thanks guys - we'll be back very soon!

Our family of 4 from the US SF bay area stayed here for a week in July 2010. All that is said about the views, tranquility and Silvana's hospitality are true. Plenty of room for my wife and me as well as two teenagers. Argegno is a lovely town - with good restaurants and even a small beach. Boat service in town to travel the lake; short drive to Como to catch a train to Milan and points beyond; and don't miss the Locanda dell'Isola Comacina Restaurant (minutes away by car) if you are there in the late spring and summer, an experience you will never forget. But best of all in the midst of a real heatwave or on a starry night just relaxing on the deck with beautiful views - all you can ask for!

Villa Panoramica is aptly named. The view of Lake Como from the private terrace is breathtaking. Our stay of five days in September, 2009, was not long enough. The modern apartment is lovely, with new appliances, computer access, and spacious rooms. Easy walk to the village below with restaurants, shops, and a ferry terminal. Drive or take the ferry to all Lake Como villages. We can't wait to return. Thank you Silvana.

Our family of three stayed at Villa Panoramica for just 3 nights in April during our 2 week Italian vacation. We wish we had spent a week there! What a view! At dawn, at dust, any time! The two bedrooms were great for our teenage son who loves some space of his own. Silvana is a great hostess who thinks of virtually everything! I suggest to those coming to stay, before going out to the grocery, check first what Silvana has put in the cupboard for you. I was surprised to find a loft of bread & a pack of rice! Como was our first stop. Lake Como is divine, a great entrance to Italy for us! We drove along the beautiful lake and across the ferry to Bellagio & Veranna. Visiting Villa Balbianello's beautiful grounds is a must! We carried Silvana's restaurant recommendations along while we drove around, and they were all great. Just wanna add Helvetia lake-front restaurant in Tremezzo as well. We had discovered it quite by luck (and hunger!), after learning last minute that most are closed on Mondays! Thanks for everything, Silvana! You can expect more people coming from Thailand!

This beautiful home was our base for 4 nights over Easter Weekend 2009. The apartment is stunning. It is bright and airy with beautiful high vaulted ceilings and we spent every waking minute admiring the sweeping 200 degree views of Lago Di Como. The house comes with a desk-top with hi-speed internet and a flat screen Sony with British satellite TV. It is an easy and gorgeous 5 minute walk down to the village center of Argegno. Argegno is beautiful, friendly and convenient. You have everything you need here: La Piazzeta for amazing food, Zoe's for excellent gelato (both face the fountain in the quaint waterfront piazza and have really friendly owners and staff), a drugstore and the Argegno ferry landing, where you can catch boats to every village on Lake Como. Silvana, who owns and manages the property, is wonderful. She is honest and friendly and speaks native English (she was born in Britain). She has stocked the house with lots of local guidebooks and literature. Her rental policies are a welcome relief from the nonsense you get from many European properties; you pay her the agreed rate and that includes everything. There is absolutely no nickel and dime nonsense. Mind you, this is in a market where some owners take a meter reading and charge you for utilities!! We ate at George Clooney's favorite restaurant (Il Gatto Nero in Cernobbio) and visited Bellagio and Tremezzo. There were great, but our favorite moments of this visit were spent sitting on the balcony of this perfect Villa...

We stayed two weeks in Villa Panormica. It was more than advertised. Spectacular view of Lago di Como. Owners have thought of everything to make one's stay comfortable. Rent a small car and parking is no problem. Owners very helpful and a wealth of information about the area. Ferry rides are beautiful and convenient to all Lake locations. No reservations in recommending this property.

Villa Panoramica was the perfect place for our vacation! With 4 adults and 1 baby, the separate bedrooms were great, and it was nice to not have to worry about finding a crib or highchair. The villa was very clean and had pretty much any ammenity you could ask for! The kitchen was well stocked with plates, cups, silverware, utensils, and more! It was also extremely convinent to have a washer/ dryer and close access to the town of Como and nearby grocery stores. I'd highly recommend a stay at Villa Panoramica!

About the owner: I have lived on lake Como since 1983 after being born and brought up in London UK. My husband is from here and has transmitted to me his love of this beautifull place. Before moving to Italy, I worked for British Airways at Heathrow and have always worked looking after holiday makers on the lake, so I feel comfortable giving reccomendations about things to do, where to eat and almost anything you might need to know, I am happy to share as much with my guests as possible to make their stay as enjoyable as possible. We live 10 minutes drive from the apartment, which we bought because we fell in love with the views from the terrace, everytime we come to the apartment to make sure all is OK, we breathe a sigh........ it's so beautifull, you could never be tired of seeing what we see from there. We think we have offered our guests a good service in the past, lots of information and help organising boat rental and special trips. I am also a guide for the villa Balbianello, a property belonging to the Italian National trust and love taking my guests to see it, it's something that shouldn't be missed.
Why the Owner Chose Argegno:
The pure magic, the 125 sq, meter terrace with un obstructed lake views, the comodity of not needing to have a car, the town of Argegno is so convenient for everything.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Apart from the views, the convenience of being 5 minutes walk from one of the busiest little towns on the lake, where all the ferries stop, there are lots of restaurants and cafes, in the apartment we have air-con, heating, satelite TV,a full kitchen and a computor and internet access already for you when you arrive, to save you any hastle and to be able to keep you in touch with the world (only if you want to!!)
