“Fabulous Location and Views with Wonderful Hosts”
Reviewed 9 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

people found this review helpful

This apartment is absolutely perfect for 2 guests and the pictures on the site are 100% accurate. Roomy and with all the conveniences you need, beautifully appointed and modern. They are very upfront that the location is not suitable for people with mobility issues or small children due to its location on the hillside and up approximately 70 steps, which provides the fantastic views of the lake.

Argegno is a very small village with limited amenities, but this is what appealed to us as we wanted a local vibe to our vacation rather than the touristy hustle and bustle of Como or Bellagio. The food at the Hotel Argegno, a 7 minute walk away, is excellent and varied enough that you can eat there multiple times if you don't feel like cooking in your own kitchen.

Nicole and Paul are very warm, welcoming hosts who are happy to provide local knowledge and assistance, which was much appreciated by us. Highly recommend this apartment and would not hesitate to return.

Liked best: The views and meeting Nicole and Paul.
Liked least: GPS takes you accurately to the location, but the number of the house is not obvious at road side because the house is up the hill, so that was a bit confusing, but one call to Nicole and she was down at the road waiting for us!

We had a wonderful relaxing holiday in Paul and Nicole's beautiful apartment during August. It is perfectly positioned overlooking the lake with absolutely spectacular views. Inside it is very stylishly designed, spotlessly clean and it was great to find the kitchen and bathroom so well stocked. Such a thoughtful gesture.

Paul and Nicole are lovely and so welcoming. They dealt with payment very professionally and sent us very clear detailed instructions on how to reach the place. They also gave us lots of useful information about the local area including good restaurants, which were easy to walk to. We were only there five days but managed to see and do so much as well as really relax and recharge our batteries. We'd definitely love to return to see more.

Dear Guests,

Thank you for your kind comments. We try to put ourselves in the shoes of our guests e.g. arriving in the evening after the shops have shut and having nothing for breakfast the next day would not constitute a very good service . Do as you would be done by ! Thanks also to you for having left the apartment in good order (as indeed have all our guests so far so, thanks to all of you). Hope to meet you again some day.

Ciao for now !

Paul & Nicole

The pictures on the website do not do justice to this gem of an apartment. The views from the balcony are stunning and constantly changing depending on the weather or the time of day. The apartment is very spacious and has everything one needs. Paul and Nicole were excellent hosts and helped us a lot with some really useful information and recommendations. We certainly hope to be back soon!

“Must be the best view on Lake Como”
Reviewed 10 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We stayed at Paul & Nicola's apartment in Argegno in early September 2016. The owners are welcoming and helpful. We usually vary our holidays between B&Bs, hotels and self-catering. Having stayed in many self-catering places, this is the best equipped we have ever seen! Every kitchen utensil you could need, tubs to take out food and a welcome pack which included eggs, butter, milk, tea, fruit, fruit juice, wine, beer etc. etc. The bathroom was also very well equipped. We wish all self catering properties would do all this. The TV had many channels including all the usual UK ones. This bright and modern apartment could not have been cleaner and it is a good size for two people.The property has about 70 steps from the parking but, when you get there, the view would make those with fancy villas on Lake Como envious. Almost everywhere on the lake road gets traffic noise and this is no exception. However, the double glazing was very effective and traffic noise was not a problem at night. Thanks Paul and Nicola for an excellent stay.

Paul and Nicola welcomed us to their stunning apartment. We were later arriving than expected and they very kindly left us homemade food to sample on arrival thus saving us the trouble of finding somewhere to eat late in the day. They had a welcome pack of fresh food in the fridge along with a bottle of wine. The apartment was immaculately clean and everything you could possibly need was provided. The views from the balconies and bedroom were breathtaking and it was delightful to wake up to such a beautiful view. Paul and Nicola explained everything about the flat and the surrounding area to us and also had a folder with places to visit and how to get there. The village is only a 5 minute walk from the apartment and there is a delightful bakers a short distance from the apartment. We had a wonderful holiday and look forward to visiting again.

I found Paul & Nicola's place after reading Paul's book and I was so glad that I did. We wanted a relaxing start to our honeymoon at Lake Como and their place was the perfect one to do it at. We rented a car and drove from Milan, their directions were perfect (we took advantage of going in to Bennett's grocery store that they mentioned in the directions as there was not any large stores in Argegno). The parking seemed a bit precarious for us Americans used to our full size SUV's and giant parking lots but it was just fine for the time we were there. The place is quiet, clean, modern and quite spacious. It had absolutely everything we needed and then some for our stay. It's a short, scenic walk into Argegno which has several great restaurants and bars. We took the boat to Bellagio one day, the Funvivo up to Pigra another and even took a day trip to Switzerland. It's a great area and the views are just flat out amazing. I'm quite sure I could have sat on the balcony forever and never gotten tired of the views.
