Are you imagining having a peaceful vacation on a mountainside with wonderful views of Lake Como and one of its most beautiful valleys? Look no further, you’ve found the perfect place.
The Villa del Sole, is called so for a very good reason, you have sunshine around the house from morning to e vening. This is a brand new, premium apartment with panoramic views of Lake Como to the east and picturesque mountain and rural views of the 'Valle d’Intelvi,' one of the lake’s most beautiful valleys, to the west. It enjoys sunshine all day long. The apartment is situated just above the town of Argegno in ROVASCIO. This 120 square metre ground floor apartment in a unique three apartment building provides a private 'getaway' for your family and friends in tranquil, 'whisper quiet' surroundings.
There are three bedrooms (one king, one queen, and two single beds), two bathrooms, air-conditioning, heating, satellite TV, two lock-up garages, private splash pool (two and one--half metres by 4 and one-half metres), outdoor balcony, terrace and garden, all for private use for this apartment only. The building has a security gate and intercom. The large lounge has comfortable sofas and leads out onto the magnificent terrace with breathtaking views of the lake and valley. The owners have designed the apartment for relaxation and comfort--a perfect base to relax or explore.
Nature trails lead to old villages and classic Italian stone terraces nearby. The nearest town, Argegno, is in an excellent strategic position only four minutes drive away. It is easy to reach all the other towns on the lake by ferry, bus or car--you couldn't ask for a more convenient point.
This paradise is only a 20 minute drive away from Cernobbio, the world famous hotel Villa D'este and the famous Villa Erba, where many exhibitions and trade fairs are held, the City of Como is a 25-minute drive away. Of course Como is the silk capital of Italy, so there are many silk and textile factory outlets and shops in the town of Como. Milan is 55 kilometres, one hour's drive (less to Milan International airport), so it is also ideal for combining a holiday with the world famous 'Monza Grand Prix', or any other sporting or business events which you may wish to attend in Milan.
All travel information will be provided to guests enquiring about the apartment, as will a welcome book (provided in the apartment) with the local tours and suggested walking itineraries in the area, local information and suggested boat trips.
It is also five minute's drive away from the "Villa Oleandra," the villa acquired from the Heinz family by George Clooney, and George has been spotted in Argegno often mixing with the local people.
The Villa Fontanella, once inhabited by Gianni Versacci is 20 minutes drive away.
Thank you so much for your hospitality during our recent visit to Argegno. Aside from its great location and stunning views, the accommodation was ideal for us to slow down after a couple of weeks on the road. The spacious layout and self-contained facilities allowed us to spread out, relax and enjoy the many local attractions at our own pace, which was in contrast to the hustle of hotel accommodation prior to arriving. The accommodation book in the villa, which contained tips and comments from previous guests, was very useful in helping us plan our daily itinerary for trips around Lake Como and into nearby Switzerland.
We have taken the opportunity to recommend the villa to a number of people we know travelling to the region and not only highlighted the above points, but also its capacity to accommodate a large group of friends in comfort and privacy.
I have live on Lake Como for 26 years, after being born and brought up in London, of Italian decent, and moved back here when I met my husband, who was born here.
