Overview

About the property

Casa Lorraine ***Special Offer September Available Dates €895 per week***

Perched on the hillside, in the ancient town of Argegno. In front of you Lake Como lies stretched out in all of its glory. In the distance you see a paddle steamer lazily making its way across the lake.

You set the breakfast terrace table with a fresh brioche and a pot of steaming coffee. Another day on the lake begins....

The property is in a typical Italian house (three floors, each with a self-contained apartment) There are some steps to reach the apartment but there is a hand rail all along to the apartment .It is on a private road that is exclusively for the use of the residents in the house which is gated. There is one parking space on this road for the apartment.

The apartment has gas central heating as well as a traditional log fire. Hot water is provided on demand from the gas boiler. There are two large bedrooms each containing a queen sized bed and a single daybed, which can convert to a double if needed. The kitchen is a brand new traditional kitchen fully equipped for all budding Italian master chefs. Drinking the water is fine as it comes from the alpine reservoirs. There is a utility room with washing machine, gas boiler and storage. The bathroom has been newly tiled with Italian marble floor and wall tiles .It has a bath/shower bidet w.c and sink with large vanity unit with large mirror.

The living room has a table that can seat 6, L-shaped sofa, single armchair, LCD TV, DVD, hi fi, play-station and free Wi-Fi.

We have a good selection of movies c.d’s and play station games and books available for your enjoyment. Internet is available by way Wi-Fi

The balcony is large enough to enjoy alfresco dining. Every window has great lake views with the best reserved for the picture window.

We are located about 6 mins away from the village centre with a very safe pedestrian path, taking you down through the heart of the village with narrow cobbled lanes and archways, and leaving you in the middle of the Piazza where you can get fantastic ice cream made on the premises at Zoë’s. The village has a small mini market to provide you with all the basics. There is a bank with international cash machine, a small harbour with marina, fishing tackle shop, cable-car station ,to take you into the mountains to the village of Pigra where you can have the experience of Como from the sky (cable cars run every half hour with a break from 12- 2).The village has its own pebble beach with an adjoining pizzeria where you can hire sun loungers etc. or fish to your heart’s content.

There are many excellent restaurant and café bars in the village to choose from and I have included some information on some of my favourties below:

Café Colombo is a tiny beautiful wine bar in the corner of the square with Italian 'tapas' and snacks available all day and a great Happy Hour (Free antipasti )at night. La Piazzetta serves a wide selection of food from pizza (best in Argegno) to fine dining i.e. fresh tuna tar. Others restaurants we recommend are, Villa Belvedere, beside the ferry port, Da' Emillio's in the harbour (great fresh fish dishes), Barchetta in the village square-good for pasta and traditional lake food,hotel Argegno-Fantastic pizza and pasta and Crotto dei Platini (3 mins down the road towards Brienno). These are situated on the Lake with fantastic food in a magical setting. A delightful wine bar Enotica Argegno, run by brothers Alberto and Luca, is only recently opened with a fantastic range of good wines available very cheaply. This also serves free antipasti.

There is a small food market in Argegno on Monday mornings where you can get fresh meat, fish veg and locally produced cheeses. There are numerous small bars in the village and a fantastic selection of restaurants and snack bars and in the surrounding areas (La Grillia 2km up the road that the property is on,is one of our favourites with great value in a beautiful rustic Italian setting).

The most important thing is to enjoy 'La Dolce Vita' with a glass of vino on the balcony.

Beautiful 180 degree views of Lake Como!

  • 4 of 5

The listing was exactly as shown in the photos. Gorgeous view, clean and well-maintained property. The owner was very accommodating. Parking was the only challenge since you had to park down the road. I would definitely return if parking accommodations could be met. The restaurants in Argegno are excellent with exceptional service. Everything is close from this point. We drove the car north about 30 minutes and caught the ferry and visited Varenna and Bellagio. We also drove south to Lake Como for the day and then the following day visited Lugano, Switzerland. The weather in October was rainy, but the sun came out while we were at the top of a mountain in Switzerland and then again on the morning of our departure. You could really see the spectacular beauty of both of these locations.

Behagliche Wohnung mit traumhaftem Ausblick, gute Lage für diverse Ausflüge

  • 5 of 5

Wohnung wie beschrieben, etwas oberhalb von Argegno. Dorfmitte gut zu Fuß zu erreichen, Bäcker und kleiner Lebensmittelmarkt mit allem Nötigsten vor Ort. Mehrere gute Lokale und Cafés/Bars im Ort. Argegno ist ein netter italienischer Ort mit vielen kleinen Gässchen und Treppen wegen der Hanglage.

Schiffsanlegestelle für Ausflüge, z.B. nach Como oder Bellagio. In Mailand waren wir mit dem Auto, von Como aus gibt es auch Zugverbindungen. In der Wohnung liegt Informationsmaterial für Restaurants und Ausflugsmöglichkeiten aus.

In der Wohnung ein Wohn-Esszimmer und zwei Schlafzimmer mit je drei Betten wie beschrieben (Betten waren bezogen, Hand- und Badetücher standen zur Verfügung). Elternschlafzimmer mit Seeblick. Wunderschön der Ausblick von Wohnzimmer oder Balkon.

Wir waren mit drei Kindern in der Woche vor Ostern da, es hat allen sehr gut gefallen (leider hatte die Seilbahn gerade Revision, Blick von oben auf den See sehr empfehlenswert). Heizung war erforderlich und hat gut funktioniert.

Kontakt mit Vermieter sehr nett und unkompliziert.

Gerne wieder!

The living room has a table that can seat 6, L-shaped sofa, single armchair, LCD TV, DVD, hi fi, play-station and free Wi-Fi.

There is a satellite dish so we can receive a selection all of the free to air English speaking TV channels. We have a good selection of movies C.D’s and play station games and books available for your enjoyment. Internet is available byway of a 3g network (Wi-Fi router can accept up to 5 devices). Please note that as Como is a mountainous region with much electrical storm activity in the region signal quality can vary. Data limits of 2gb per week apply.

Please note that video streaming and other heavy usage is not recommended as this can use up the weekly data allowance very quickly.

The balcony is large enough to enjoy alfresco dining. Every window has great lake views with the best reserved for the picture window.

We are located about 6 mins away from the village centre with a very safe pedestrian path, taking you down through the heart of the village with narrow cobbled lanes and archways, past the local panifico with aromas of freshly baked bread and leaving you in the middle of the Piazza where you can get fantastic ice cream made on the premises at Zoë’s. The village has a small mini market to provide you with all the basics. There is a bank with international cash machine, a small harbor with marina, fishing tackle shop, cable-car station, to take you into the mountains to the village of Pigra where you can have the experience of Como from the sky (cable cars run every half hour with a break from 12- 2). The village has its own pebble beach with an adjoining pizzeria and lakeside swimming pool where you can hire sun loungers etc. or fish to your heart’s content.

There are many excellent restaurant and café bars in the village to choose from and I have included some information on some of my favorites below:

There are numerous small bars in the village and a fantastic selection of restaurants and snack bars and in the surrounding areas (La Grillia 2km up the road that the property is on, is one of our favorites with great value in a beautiful rustic Italian setting).

The village lies on the main lakeside road and therefore is on the main bus route up and down the lake .It also has a ferry port stop for passenger ferries (both slow ferry and hydrofoil) and these are a great way of seeing the lake, which is at its best when viewed from the water. You can get daily rambler tickets so you can hop on and off at your leisure.

Bellagio is one town not to miss. Taxis are available from Café Colombo in the village Public transport is both inexpensive and reliable and runs very frequently.
