We booked this home directly with the owners, Barrie and Julie, who could not have been more accomodating furnishing us with lots of tips on where to visit, dine and to shop. The home, i can confirm, is exactly as described (if not better) Spotlessly clean, spacious and with every home comfort and wonderful views to boot. Argegno is a charming village and a real find with friendly locals and a good array of restaurants and bars. The ferry and cable car also came in handy during our stay which are accessible from the village. We were a little hesistant at first to book given the warnings on the site regarding booking direct however we neednt have worried. Barrie quickly put our mind at ease, personally taking the time to call us and pointing us in the direction of past reviews and articles online where The Place in The Sun magazine had featured the home so we are glad we took a leap of faith and chose this home which meant a good saving. Thank you once more! We have recommended the home direct and would certainly use italian apartments again if we return to Italy.
