This exquisitely furnished apartment, overlooking Lake Como, is a pleasure to stay in. The owners, who couldn't be nicer, have paid careful attention to quality and details. Everything works, glides smoothy, and is attractive in a modern but not showy way. The views of the lake are spectacular. The town of Argegno is small and lacks the villas and gardens of the more famous neighboring towns but this makes it quieter and less congested. The apartment provides an extremely comfortable base from which to explore the region's many attractions.

Cecile's warm welcome was only the beginning of one of the most wonderful weeks of our travels. As we approached the apartment, we could see her standing on the patio patiently awaiting our arrival. She opened the gates to the garage where our vehicle would be stored securely for the next week. The elevator from the garage directly into the penthouse was the perfect amenity to accommodate my father-in-law's limited mobility.

Upon entering the apartment, we were amazed at all this place had to offer. We loved the modern decor, but honestly, it was difficult to focus on anything other than the incredible view out of every room. The furniture, including both beds were incredibly comfortable.

We had the pleasure of staying here over the Easter weekend and throughout the next week. Cecile had left us some treats in the kitchen for the holiday - chocolate bunnies and a bottle of their very own wine. We very much enjoyed both!

Rudolf's attention to detail when constructing this home left us wanting for nothing. Despite being right on the roadway at the rear of the house, there was almost no noise from passing vehicles. The ease at which the sliding doors moved and the automatic sun shade functionality are small details which may easily be overlooked, but were very much appreciated. The washer and dryer were the best we have used in Europe.

Both bedrooms and the full-length patio had incredible views of the lake and surrounding mountains. As others have mentioned, we found the church bells next door to be quite charming and added to the ambiance of this incredible apartment. The bells are silent from 10pm until 7am so a full night of uninterrupted sleep was of no concern.

It is a short walk to the center of town with passage through a tunnel under the street which was nice on the busy holiday weekend. There are several great restaurants here with La Piazzetta being our favorite. Chris and his staff were absolutely the best! We dined with them on several occasions during the week and he was even able to seat us early on Easter despite not having a reservation.

Argegno is the perfect location to explore Lake Como and the surrounding communities. Rudolf and Cecile prepared a book with details including sites to see, ferry and funicular timetables and much more.

Thank you Rudolf and Cecile for opening your home to us for this most perfect week in paradise.

This is better than a five star!

  • 5 of 5

Well, what can we tell you. First of all the Penthouse was immaculate with spectacular views of Lake Como and the mountains from all rooms. The Penthouse is very private and secure. The elevator from the enclosed secure garage goes directly to the Penthouse and opens to this gorgeous Penthouse. This Penthouse is located right in the middle of Argegno and within walking distance to restaurants, bars and shopping plus the ferry is very close. The farmers market is held every Tuesday and is wonderful. The kitchen amenities are the best we have ever seen in any rental. Our friends are both wonderful cooks (as is my wife) and every utensil and electric was available PLUS a great BBQ on the lanai overlooking the lake. There was one problem......a week was just not enough as we did not want to leave.

Beautiful modern lakefront apartment

  • 5 of 5

Dear Rudolf and Cecile,

We really enjoyed our stay in your delightful and well situated apartment.

After three weeks in different hotels in Madrid, Barcelona, Florence and

Milan it was paradise!

Weather the first two days was ideal and we visited Villa Balbianello for

the first time. We then returned to Villa Carlotta and Villa Melzi and


We shopped at the Monday market as well as the local Panificio etc and

treated ourselves to dinner each evening at La P'Osteria. We made good

friends with Niccolo.

This was our first visit to the lower part of Lake Como and we were

entranced by the magnificent views of steeply wooded slopes meeting still

water, reflections and the changing colours of the clouds etc.

Thank you for providing for us so well in your very homely and comfortable


You had been recommended by friends in Adelaide who had also stayed there.

Tras 7 años de vacaciones en el lago Le Vele es el mejor apartamento en el que nos hemos alojado. Su ubicación, tamaño y vistas son inmejorables. La terraza directamente sobre el lago y el embarcadero privado son realmente increíbles . Destacaría sobre todo su mantenimiento, limpieza y equipamiento. Otro aspecto a destacar es el parking privado con acceso directo al apartamento, el lago es un lugar con dificultades de aparcamiento así que el garaje facilita muchísimo la estancia. Sólo puedo comentar aspectos positivos, lo recomiendo sin duda volveremos!

Gracias a Cécile y Rudolf por su atención.

What an amazing appartmen with a stunning view.

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic place far beyond our expectations. We have been in many places and for the first time the pictures were not exaggerated. This might be the best place we have ever visited.

We were met by the kind owners – Cecile and Rudolf who had prepared every little detail to make our stay as pleasant as possible. To be honest, we did not get all the details as we were too amazed by the apartment and especially the large terrace and the wonderful view. The apartment seems larger than shown on pictures and the two individual sleeping sections with separate bathrooms worked very well for us as a family of 4. All rooms have a stunning view of the lake and large sliding doors. The terrace and the view is without any comparison in this price range. The terrace has automatic sun blinds making it the perfect place during the entire day. The undergrown parking is another detail that makes this place fantastic. You don’t need to think about your car during your stay as it is locked up in a cold garage and with the lake ferries connecting the most interesting places along the lake, you only need your car if you need to visit the mountains or to Milan for shopping. The ferry port is within a couple of minutes in walking distance and an easy way to go around on the lake. The city or Argegno is small but with a very nice square with nice restaurants in different price ranges and quality, bars and the ferry terminal. For your convenience, Rudolf and Cecile had prepared a booklet with things to do in the area as well as a review of the different restaurants. Try out the restaurant La Piazetta on the square – which we found the best. Also there is a small bakery/grocery just next to the square you can use to prepare breakfast. We will also recommend to visit the boat rental Turati and take a cruise on the lake. While you are there, ask Thomas Turati about his boat racing. It appears that he is the former European champion in Fomula 1 boat racing and he will be more than happy to tell you his story.

Finally a comment on the church bells. We had a concern before our stay, but this was not at all an issue. On the contrary we found it very charming and a nice experience to listen to the different tunes it plays during the week. It also helped us not to sleep in and get up in the morning to enjoy another memorable day in the apartment. Thank you Cecile and Rudolf for making our vacation special, we will definitely visit you again in the near future. Marianne & Tom, DK
