Argegno:

You pass through the small town of Argegno (approx 700 population) when traveling up the Western shore of Lake Como from Cernobbio/Como to Menaggio.Well placed and sheltered, it is situated in a large inlet at the mouth of the Val d'Intelvi. This river flows at varying rates throughout the year as its tumbles from the mountains between Como and Lake Lugano.

Looking across the lake you can see Bellagio to the north and as far as Nesso towards the south. The village is of Roman origin and owes its name to the consul Publio Cesio Archigene. With the Lake being ruled by warring factions centuries ago, Argegno formed part of a defensive system, which extended as far as the ancient villa of Lenno and to Isola Comacina.

This picturesque and ancient village is crossed by the Telo stream which splits into two parts, after falling down from a the towns ravine. The two are joined by an old stone bridge with a lancet arch.From Argegno, it is possible to take a cable car up to Pigra (881 mts.), which is situated on a plateau that enjoys a beautiful view of the lake. From here, it is possible to go on to the Valle della Camoggia, which is in the oasis of Argegno-Cima della Duaria, a conservation breather road, which runs along Val d'Intelvi, also starts from Argegno and after following this road for about about 16 km, you will arrive at Lanzo.

The best way to appreciate Argegno is to walk up one of the narrow lanes. Most are paved with intersecting fan pattern of small square stones typical in much of the area. This area is almost entirely residential but the walkways are impeccably maintained with potted red geraniums and colourful flowers contrasting with the ancient brickwork and facades.

Lake Como is made up of lots of towns and many villages all with their own sights and sceneries. Argegno has 'The Sanctuary of Sant'Anna' This Church was built in the seventeenth century and was subsequently renovated. Inside there is find stucco work and frescoes from the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Close by there is also the Oratory of San Rocco in Pigra Built in the fifteenth century, this contains frescoes from 1.662 signed by S.Pozzi. Argegno borders the following municipalities: Brienno, Colonno, Dizzasco, Lezzeno, Nesso, Pigra, Schignano.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We've had a marvellous week on the Italian Lakes this Autumn. Our villa was just the most beautiful place, with gorgeous rooms and stunning lake views. Lake Como was spectacular in the autumn time and we enjoyed some truly scenic walks and sightseeing. Thank you HHH for your dedicated and friendly service, we are all more than impressed!
