Overview

Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday apartment in Argegno - M on the Lake,

Beautiful apartment to sleep 8 with incredible lake and mountain views

This apartment (ID 216) is situated in the picturesque lake village of Argegno, on the sunny west side of Lake Como. This west shore has a particularly mild climate and one of the prettiest promenades of the entire lake.

The apartment is the ground floor and basement of a three-story property, built on the mountain slope below Via Schignano, nestled up against the stone. In Argegno village the alley ways are narrow and winding. One of these, Via Garibaldi, leads from the village up to Via Schignano.

The apartment is furnished with an Asian/Italian fusion. Furnishings are lacquered powder red, olive black and chocolate brown. Wardrobes are tapered cabinet style, and the apartment is littered with Asian fabrics and silk rugs together with unique antiques from China, Indonesia and beyond.

There is a bright kitchen-living room with access to the terrace, a master bedroom (off the kitchen) small center bedroom and 3rd bedroom with access to the village side terrace. If you want to avoid the direct sun, shutters will provide pleasant semi-shade.

The apartment’s modular kitchen is houses a large fridge, five-ring gas hob and electric oven. Kitchen units are heavy modular beech and stainless steel with a freestanding butchers block.

The apartment also benefits from Wireless Internet Access throughout ~ bring your laptop!

There are 3 double bedrooms all with lake views. The apartment has radiators in every room for the winter guests, and ceiling fans supply a cool breeze during summer months.

Guests should feel free to relax and set the selection of outside furniture out on the terraces for delicious “al-fresco dining”.

Guests will need to park their car a little way from the apartment and walk the last few yards (approx. 200 m). The house has a simple facade - inside, roll the shutters up and it is flooded with light. You are bathed in daylight and can enjoy a wonderful view of the lake from every room.

The apartment is cool in the summer and heated by radiators in every room in the winter and is therefore an all season apartment and can be enjoyed any time of year.

Argegno Area:

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.

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.

Lombardy - Lake Como Area:

The Italian Lakes are a little slice of paradise. Elegant ribbons of blue water stretch out ahead, folded into the sun-baked foothills, with a spectacular back drop of the snow-capped Alps.

Lake Como offers hidden treasures just waiting for the visitor to discover them: charming corners forgotten by time, lakeside villages where nothing seems to have changed for centuries.

It is steeped in history with an immense collection of churches, architectural masterpieces and works of art covering the centuries. The lake is situated in a basin surrounded by wooded mountains, and offers an extremely varied landscape, with its' shores featuring a succession of pastures, and woods as well as harsh and impressive rock formations.

All this alongside elegant, lakeside villas with sub-tropical gardens, which provide a haven of peace and tranquillity and chic resorts such as Varenna, Bellagio, Menaggio and Como itself.

Warming, in spriing and graced with natural beauty, the lakes are still a place to draw breath and wonder. Lake Como, oriented north-south, ringed by characterful old villages often wedged onto narrow beaches between rugged cliffs and water. Those classic lake images of flower strewn balconies, Baroque gardens and splendid waterside villas can be found here in abundance. Dotted around and between the lakes are some of Italy's finest art cities, such as Milan, Verona & Bergamo.

The most romantic and picturesque villages on the lake are Santa Maria Rezzonico, Varenna (15 min by ferry) & Bellagio (8 min by ferry), Lenno (visit Villa Balbianello, location for 007's Casino Royale as well as Villa Gaeta, right here in Menaggio) & Laglio (where George Clooney owns Villa Oleandra).

There are Golf clubs around Lake Como: The Menaggio & Cadenabbia Golf Club is Italy's oldest golf course. Established in 1907 with 18 holes Par 70, it is located above Menaggio near Croce, in Grandola ed Uniti, approx. 20 min. by car. Tel: +39 344 321 03. Green Fees: Weekdays €55, Weekends and Holidays €70 Euros; Golf Cart Rental €36.

Restaurant Golf at the club serves fantastic food and is well recommended.. Guests are always welcome, please call beforehand to check course rules. Golf Club Menaggio: (Menaggio Como).

Guests will need to park their car a little way from the apartment and walk the last few yards (approx. 200 m). The house has a simple facade - inside, roll the shutters up and it is flooded with light. You are bathed in daylight and can enjoy a wonderful view of the lake from every room.

In the summer the locals and tourists lounge and swim at the many Lidos scattered around the lake. As the sun sets the Lido's come alive with gossip and the clink of Prosecco glasses.

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.

Skiing:

This beautiful lake region of Italy is not the best for skiing as you may imagine, despite its scenery, crisp air and near perfect visibilty and mountains capped in winter snow. It does however have Skiing opportunities at local resorts for a day out.

There is a small ski area on Mt. Lema, not more than 10 km from Lugano, but you have to be lucky to have enough snow for skiing. In Ticino, the local Swiss Canton, the best places to ski are probably either San Bernardino (south of the pass of the same name) or Airolo (south of Gotthard pass). Both are reachable in about 1 hour by car across the Swiss border.

There are direct trains to Airolo as well from Lugano and hence from Italian Stations. To S. Bernardino there is only a bus connection. For more snow try Andermatt (on the north side of Gotthard pass) which has normally good snow conditions and a good choice of runs.

The closest major ski resorts are St. Moritz and Madesimo toward the Splugen Pass which is approx.100km.
