After a two week stay with mixed weather we enjoyed lounging in shade in the garden, eating on the balcony and gazing at the ferries, sea planes, stars and the ever changing view. Lots to do nearby and Switzerland only a zip across an interesting hill road! Carmen was a delightful and most helpful host. Internet access most useful. Truly relaxing but renting a boat, swimming in the lake, exploring in the hills above Pigra the area offers endless possibilities and Chalet Lilia offers a most comfortable, thoughtfully designed base. We intend to return.

The apartment is a short walk from Piazza and Argegno is an idyllic little town. Argegno offers bars, restaurants, shops and the best ice cream store. The apartment was great 7 well equipped. The pool is private sun trap and we took full advantage!
