We were a party of 3 adults
in their 70’s
and stayed one week
in September 2018
We loved the village of Argegno ...
filled with loving caring helpful neighbors...
restaurant owners...shop keepers...
we loved passing others each morning
in our walks down to the village
and with each
another heart warming memory
We loved the apartment...the incredible views
the more than ample space...
the impeccable cleanliness...
the modern bathrooms/kitchen
up to the lake and mountains
all as pictured in the
We were also 3 adults
in their 70’s without telephones
or car...only wifi email on I pad tablet and USA only mobiles
(there is very good wifi in the apartment)
but communication with one another
was inefficient and created some confusion
without working telephones
We could navigate
the very steep and many stairs
(the house has a great bannister for holding on to)
there are stairs down to the laundry
stairs up to the
and more stairs
to the upper loft...
and many many
to and from the village
The way to the village for supplies
and coming and going
must be a consideration
to those without a car
We felt limited to one round trip
walking up and down
to the village per day
and ate all our meals out...
We loved the ferries from town to town
and the whizzing C10 buses along the lake
... and the train rides
into and out of Como
Had we had a car
a lot of the life of the village
and the people we met on public transit
would have been missed...
Having no car made buying provisions—impossible for us...
we could not possibly carry them up the hill
or stop in Como on the way into Argegno
at the best big super markets...
or go to Lenno
to use the closest
as a possibility...
or to be able to have time to enjoy
“our house on the hill” with its spectacular view
as we would leave in the AM
and return after dinner in the late PM
This was our experience...
with our needs and wants
with what we hope
is helpful insight as to what others might expect
We were two couples travelling together and staying at Santa Maria Rezzonico. The apartment was modern and clean and the beds were comfortable. The two bathrooms were modern and well equipped. It is so nice nice to stay in a lovely clean house. The balcony was great for dining al fresco in the evening or just enjoying a drink together.
The area around here is so beautiful, which we already knew as we had travelled here all together 47 years ago. The ferry from menaggio was very convenient and as long as we were there before ten we could get parked, past the terminal and up the hill, where the parking was free. We ate out at various places, not in Santa Maria though, no reason for this it was just easier to eat out when we were out and about. We had a lovely day in Como, we went on the hydrofoil at 8.10 on Saturday but it goes at 8 in the week. It was quite expensive but well worth it. We decided to come back by ferry but to be honest the price was not that different. Just a tip if you go on a saturday to como and don't get a return ticket, get your return ticket when you arrive in como, we left getting ours until later and had to queue for 30 mins.
We have had a wonderful stay here and would thoroughly recommend this apartment to others.
