Argegno - Lake Como:
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.
In Argegno there is a pretty waterside promenade, a ferry point, harbour and a small shingle beach, a market is also held there every Monday. A selection of bars and restaurants are situated around in the Piazza, also a bakery, gelateria and a shop. Alternatively, a supermarket can be found in Lenno, which is just a 10 minute drive away.
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 (881m), 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 area.The 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.

Guestbook comments from the manager
Argegno Vista is a beautiful property and the lake is truly a breathtaking, we had a superb vacation, we enjoyed our stay at Argegno Vista very much of its spacious, brightness, cleanest and great location. Wasn’t hard to find, your team were very helpful, when we just arrived there was no hot water we called the hotline thanks to the staff their someone came and fixed it and showed us what to do in case it tripped again. Also while we were visiting Menaggio we had a chance to stop by at holiday homes office just to say thank you for everything we were greeted very well and giving some valuable brochures.
