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.

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.

The picturesque town of Argegno offers a timeless appeal, with narrow ancient back streets leading past historical townhouses to the gushing water of the River Telo and the pretty cafe lined piazza and charming harbour. The nearby centre of Argegno and surrounding area also offers some very good dining options to tantalize the taste buds, including the town’s contemporary ‘La Piazzetta’, the nearby lakeside ‘Locanda La Trilindana’ and not forgetting the wide range of inexpensive authentic pizzerias which are all within easy driving distance of Argegno.

A passenger ferry and bus service both run from the town and the famous L’Isola Comacina, Villa Balbianello, Villa Carlotta and the vibrant restaurant lined Tremezzo shore are all within easy driving distance of Argegno, making it the ideal base for a Lake Como escape!

The famous ‘golden triangle’ resort towns of the central lake are easily within reach by car and passenger ferry service from Cadenabbia. Guests can enjoy the idyllic cafes, restaurants, villa attractions and boutique shops at their leisure in Bellagio, Varenna and Menaggio and really enjoy their romantic appeal and timeless beauty.

The holiday home is also within easy reach of some very scenic walks including Sacro Monte di Ossuccio and the Greenway del Lago.

Lake swimming, lidos, power boat rental, water sports, tennis and world class golf can all be enjoyed along the western shore and the cosmopolitan highlights and excellent transport links of Como city are readily available just a 25 minute drive away.

Additional Sport & Adventure Activities include:

Bike Rentals, Boat Rentals/Charters, Canoeing/Kayaking, Float Plane/Helicopter, Funicular Railway, Park, Public Transportation, Public Villas & Gardens and Rowing Boats.

Golf:

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. 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).

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.
