About Brian Roberts
I live and work in Dublin, Ireland. I fell in love with Como, particularly Argegno, over 12 years ago and spend time there every year since. I bought this lovely apartment in 2008 and always enjoy returning to it whenever I can.

Why Brian Roberts chose Argegno
I love travelling and after many years doing so I say still say to people 'Como is the most beautiful place on earth'. Every friend I have told this too that visits comes back in full agreement. Argegno is a lovely town which provides the best opportunities to see the rest of the lake at your leisure. Having said that, if you never left this apartment and just relaxed and admired the stunning views from the balcony all week I can't think any other holiday could match it.

Perfect apartment in a perfect place
We loved our weeklong stay in this apartment and would go back in a heart beat! We were two Canadian couples who stayed comfortably here. Apartment has stunning views of the lake. It is close to all the amenities in the town. The local town is nice in that it is not too touristy allowing you to get a true sense of what an Italian town on lake como is like.
Kitchen had everything you could need to make a home cooked meal. Owners recommendations were great. Highlight was taking the ferry to the island for a delicious meal. Thanks for providing such a nice home base for us to explore beautiful lake como!
Thank you so much for your kind words. I am thrilled that you loved the apartment and splendour of the lake! You are most welcome back anytime!
Beautiful property with stunning views
We stayed at this apartment at the of September for a week. The apartment is absolutely perfect for a weeks holiday, its clean, bright, spacious and has everything you could need for self catering. It is extremely comfortable and there is plenty of space for 4 people. However the best thing about it was the magnificent views of the Lake from the balcony, they are quite stunning! We sat put most evenings with a bottle of wine enjoying the evening sun set over the lake. The town of Argengo is really lovely too and a short walk from the apartment. There are some steep steps to climb if making the journey by foot but to be honest the views make this bit of effort worth while! I would definitely stay here again.
Wonderful apartment overlooking Lake Como
When we arrived at the apartment we were delighted: it had stunning views of the lake, especially from the living area. The apartment has everything one could need: great bathroom, fully equipped kitchen and 2 very good bedrooms. Though we didn't use it there was a large swimming pool at the rear of the apartment and ample garaging. The spotlessly clean apartment was about 300m from the heart of Argegno - the Piazzetta - which had terrific bars and restaurants, a fantastic gelateria and other facilities just a stone's throw from the lakeside. The ferry terminal, the starting point to explore amazing lake and its fascinating towns was just across the road.
The owner Brian was brilliant, answering all my initial enquiries promptly and couldn't have been more helpful.
The apartment has my highest recommendation.
Relaxing Stay and Gorgeous Views
With very short notice we were delighted to book this place for four people and we had a wonderful, relaxing winter break! The apartment was very comfortable and offered some absolutely spectacular views of lake Como!!
Walking down to the little town of Argegno through the winding little cobble stone alley ways and beautiful architecture added to the experience of going out for meals at night. The food in the town is very good and we had plenty of choices.
We had stayed in Argegno over the summer and really enjoyed the little town with all the little terraces and the boat service which makes it so easy to get around the lake for day trips. I would certainly recommend staying in this apartment instead of one of the dusty old hotels that we had opted for over the summer.
There is plenty to do around lake Como both in winter and in summer and this apartment is a good base. We will definitely be returning to this apartment again.
This is a lovely apartment with magnificent lake views. Argegno is a nice town and a great place to fully experience all that Lake Como has to offer. Brian was a pleasure to deal with throughout and we have already vowed to return during summer time as our visit in late October was with mixed weather unfortunately. Certainly will return.
Real Italian Joie de Vivre
The house was clean, spacious and well equipped. As the house is situated in front of a valley the temperature is mostly very pleasant, not to mention the view from the appartment which is absolutely stunning. We loved the swimming pool, but there is also a beach downtown. The lovely local restaurants in Argegno (La Piazetta, Barchetta and Colombo, plus some others) are recommended.
You'll need a car to benefit from this house, but there is a good bus (and boat!) connection in walking distance with both Como and Bellagio. The local council has put in place a very simple rubbish collection system, everything is well organized in this amazing place!
Overall: great appartment with pool and garage for a family holiday in a friendly and hospitable small village Argegno.
Apartment is just 300 metres from the lake shore and beach. Easy access with only a two minute walk from the restaurants and bars in Argegno.
