Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time in Argegno Centrale.

The property was beautifully presented and we would recommend it to friends. The town was charming and very central to visiting everything around Lake Como.

Your pre stay communications were timely and helpful.

perfect location, luxurious no.

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Argegno Bellavista and there were many positives associated with this property. Location was perfect, a few steps from public transport, lido, restaurants etc, but still very quiet and peaceful. Terrace was perfect for drinks and meals, and watching the moon rise.

There were, however, a few points which could have easily been improved, which we found disappointing. An upstairs toilet was dirty on arrival and had to be cleaned by us.The upstairs showers were either dangerously hot or stone cold and we were unable to regulate them.

We were traveling with a two year old and I had especially written for confirmation that a cot would be in the apartment on arrival. This was confirmed by Lydia del Renzio ( August 22) but no cot was waiting for us. Two phone calls later,and after over three hours of waiting , the cot was delivered.

One bedroom was serviced by air-conditioning in which the overflow was into a bucket in the room. This had to be emptied in the morning , after listening to the perpetual dripping throughout the night.

The first evening we decided to eat in but found the crockery incomplete. The missing pasta bowls and side plates appeared miraculously the following day.

Although , on the whole , we found the team friendly and professional , we feel the property was let down by the maintenance/cleaning staff.

Golf:

There are Golf clubs around Lake Como: The Menaggio & Cadenabbia Golf Club is Italy's oldest golf course. Established in 1907 with 18 holes Par 70, it is located above Menaggio near Croce, in Grandola ed Uniti, approx. 20 min. by car. Green Fees: Weekdays €55, Weekends and Holidays �������70 Euros; Golf Cart Rental €36.

Restaurant Golf at the club serves fantastic food and is well recommended.. Guests are always welcome, please call beforehand to check course rules. Golf Club Menaggio: (Menaggio Como).

Skiing:

This beautiful lake region of Italy is not the best for skiing as you may imagine, despite its scenery, crisp air and near perfect visibility and mountains capped in winter snow. It does however have Skiing opportunities at local resorts for a day out.

There is a small ski area on Mt. Lema, not more than 10 km from Lugano, but you have to be lucky to have enough snow for skiing. In Ticino, the local Swiss Canton, the best places to ski are probably either San Bernardino (south of the pass of the same name) or Airolo (south of Gotthard pass). Both are reachable in about 1 hour by car across the Swiss border.

There are direct trains to Airolo as well from Lugano and hence from Italian Stations. To S. Bernardino there is only a bus connection. For more snow try Andermatt (on the north side of Gotthard pass) which has normally good snow conditions and a good choice of runs.

The closest major ski resorts are St. Moritz and Madesimo toward the Splugen Pass which is approx.100km.
