Property description

WE LOOK FORWARD TO WELCOMING YOU TO VILLA PANORAMICA AND WOULD JUST LIKE TO SAY A WORD ABOUT OUR PRICES, THEY ARE BASED ON 4 OR MORE GUESTS. IF THERE ARE UP TO 3 GUESTS, THERE IS A 200.00 PER WEEK DISCOUNT.
IDEAL PLACE TO STAY WHILE VISITING THE EXPO 2015 BEING HELD IN MILAN.
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.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

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 WIFI, included in the rental price.
