Although we arrived late, we were greeted with one of Nicole's delicious home made meals.
Waking the next morning to glorious views of Lake Como and the mountains was a perfect prelude to our stay in Argegno. The apartment was an ideal base for exploring the town on foot and the ferry service, which gave us easy access to the other places of interest around the lake shores.
Paul and Nicole were the perfect hosts with lots of good tips and funny anecdotes about their time in Italy. Would we return? Yes, in a heart beat.
We LOVED our stay in this beautiful, impeccably clean & well equipped apartment in the lovely village of Argegno. Oh, & what a view!!! We lost count of how many times we said, "Wow!"
A great location, easy access from the bus stop & an enjoyable walk into the village square where there is a variety of restaurants & easy access to the ferry.
Nicole & Paul were excellent hosts going above & beyond. We appreciated all the information given when ever we had a query including prior to arrival. The fruit basket, bottle of wine, coffee, jam, bread & other supplies were an unexpected treat. Occasionally the ambience was spoilt by traffic noise otherwise this really was the best place to end of our 6x week holiday.
Thank you Paul & Nicole for your kind hospitality & fun stories.
Nicole excelled at giving information on how to find them prior to our stay, and updates when needed. Some food essentials were provided which were much appreciated.These would be particularly useful for a late arrival.
The apartment is well equipped with everything you would need for a comfortable
stay. Fast broadband, UK tv and plenty of information on the local area.
Patriotic (GB) colour scheme, particularly in the bedroom. Views from the terrace and rooms were fabulous. Some road noise,(but we notice it because we live in a very quiet rural location).
Argegno is an ideal location for exploring the surrounding area with services by bus, boats and cable car.
Interesting hosts who made our stay very enjoyable.
We thoroughly enjoyed staying at our villa in Argegno with our wonderful hosts Nicole and Paul. We had everything available to us and dietary needs catered for. Can’t recommend this villa enough. Even got fit walking to village couple of times a day. Argegno is a fantastic village to stay on lake Como. Plus amazing views. Thanks again Nicole and Paul.
We have just returned from a 5 night stay at this wonderful apartment. From the moment we booked the apartment Paul and Nicole were very helpful and by the time we eventually met them we felt that we were meeting friends. Nicole had thought of everything possible to ensure that our stay here was comfortable, the apartment was spotlessly clean and very well equipped and there was even a bottle of cold Pinot in the fridge along with many other very welcome supplies!! We could even lie in bed in the morning and look at the view of the lake and sitting on our balcony was perfect whilst we ate our breakfast.
The walk in to town was very pleasant and once there we had a good choice of restaurants and bars and the ferry terminal was just across the busy road. We even used the local C10 bus but if you decide to do this be aware they can be 10 mins early and 10 mins late and are practically non existent on a Sunday. Next time we are hiring a car!!
The locals in Argengo were all very friendly, kind and helpful and sitting in the square enjoying an evening drink was very pleasurable.
Highlights of our trip was visiting Lenno and the Villa del Balbianello, truly stunning, Varenna, Mennaggio and going up in the cable car to Pigra. We can't wait to return to Lake Como again, it is without doubt the most picturesque place to visit.
Thank you Paul and Nicole, our stay at your apartment was wonderful, you are lovely people and we enjoyed meeting your Italian friends and sampling some of your delicious cheese cake. Alla prossima (until next time)!!
My husband and I fell in love w this place when we were booking our trip. And I’m so glad we did. It was very comfortable and very well stocked w kitchen supplies and bathroom necessities. The balcony w a gorgeous view of the lake was our favorite place to relax w wine after a day of exploring what was around. Other perks was having the bus stop just a short walk, a place to park for the days we rented a car and a fantastic footpath that led into town for some delicious wine, pizza and gelatos.
The extra details did not go unnoticed. Besides Nicole’s efforts of making it the most emaculate place ever, which I appreciate SO much, they also had the fridge and cupboards stocked very thoughtfully w the staples. They were very helpful w ideas and tips for getting around the lake, supplying maps and menus and even had bus tickets ready (which we gladly reimbursed) She even made the prettiest and yummiest pastry and dessert on our last night. We want to thank you Paul & Nicole so much for everything! We have such sweet memories and will be sure to save your info for future visits❤️ We highly recommend this flat.
