Be captivated by the luxury of this rustic lake view retreat!

Nestled amongst the Argegno hillside, within the authentic timeless charm of Dizzasco, couples, groups and families of 6 can enjoy taking in the natural beauty, tourist sites and leisure pursuits of the Italian Swiss Lake district.

Located within a 15 minute drive from Argegno on Lake Como and a 36 minute drive from the shore of Lake Lugano, the beautiful hillside retreat promises to be a breathtaking and memorable getaway!

The holiday home is situated to the second floor of a 3 storey period townhouse. Inside no expense has been spared in restoring and maximising the internal space, with all the must-have mod cons. Guests can take in the ambient appeal of the apartment’s original beams, which have been exposed for maximum drama and beauty. The exposed stone wall and terracotta flooring to the spacious open plan living room also ooze a romantic charm that is captivating in all seasons.

Here, a contemporary leather sofa suite is complemented by a stone open fireplace and flat screen SAT TV with DVD player and free WIFI access, for cosy evenings in. The direct access from here to the sunny lake view balcony also offers an effortless flow to the room in the summer months. The romantic private balcony offers a bistro dining set and boasts spectacular views towards Lake Como, from its elevated hillside setting.

The stunning open plan living room is complemented by a solid wood dining area for 6 and a kitchen. Fully-equipped for carefree self-catering stays, families and friends can enjoy rustling up tasty homemade meals together, with an oven, microwave, toaster, kettle, coffee machine and dishwasher provided.

From this ambient and inviting domestic scene, a spiral open tread staircase leads to a lovely bright and spacious mezzanine floor above. Also benefitting from beautiful solid beams, this floor offers the perfect overflow solution for extra guests staying; with a double bed and separate cushioned platform which guests can use to relax, read a book or even use as an extra single bed. A spacious master bedroom with lake views and a second area with double sofa bed provide couples with a scenic haven in which to enjoy guilt-free holiday slumbers. Ideal for family and friends, the retreat offers true flexibility throughout your stay!

The layout of this fabulous retreat is further completed by a spacious modern fitted shower room and useful homely extras, including a fitted washer dryer.

Outside there is ample communal parking and from its scenic hillside setting, the authentic charms of Dizzasco and nearby Argegno can easily be taken in. The beautiful natural setting offers close proximity to the vibrant, well-connected lake shore of Argegno (15 minute drive) and breathtaking Lake Lugano in the west (36 minutes drive).

Historical Argegno offers the perfect base from which to enjoy the very best of Lake Como. With its charming cafes, authentic restaurants, quaint harbour and dramatic River Telo passing through, timeless Argegno also offers passenger ferry crossings to Como and a main lake road which is serviced by a frequent western shore bus service that operates towards Menaggio and Como.

The delights of the Central Lake are also within a 15 minute drive away; for the perfect excuse to enjoy a classic sightseeing day amongst the beauty of Villa Balbianello and Villa Carlotta.

The super selection of family Lidos in Ossuccio, Lenno, Tremezzina and Menaggio alongside the wealth of authentic lakeside restaurants on the Central Lake also offer the ideal daytime indulgence here in the summertime. A treasure trove of picturesque resort towns including Bellagio and Varenna can also easily be reached by taking the ferry from nearby Cadenabbia.

With the wide selection of nearby leisure pursuits including water sports, boat hire, sailing, golf, tennis, hiking, extreme sports and Italian Alp skiing, even the most active guests will be kept amused!

The city highlights of Lugano (49 minutes drive), Como (35 minutes drive) and Milan (68 minutes drive) will also keep those who crave cosmopolitan days and evenings out entertained.

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.

Schöne Ferienwohnung mit Charme

  • 4 of 5

Charmante, geräumige Ferienwohnung mit herrlicher Aussicht. Guter Ausgangspunkt für die Erkundung des Comersees. Vermutlich wären wir die ersten Mieter nach längerer Winterpause, die Wohnung war nicht sehr sauber, wobei die Putzkraft am 2. Tag reinigen kam. Zum Kamin wäre es noch schön gewesen Holz verfügbar zu haben.

Leider ziemlich lärmig, auch wenn die Baustelle unterhalb des Hauses nicht noch Jahrelang betrieben wird, ist die Strasse welche das Tal hinauf fährt doch recht lärmig.

Owner's Response: Thank you for writing your review and we are pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay! Yes, the apartment is in a very central location so you don't require a car, but then you will of course experience a bit of road noise. I agree, the views are stunning and the apartment is spacious. Apologies if the cleaning was not 100% as this is not acceptable. I will of course be speaking with our cleaning team so this won't happen again. The house was closed over winter. If you decide to return again in the future, we can provide you with a 10% discount. Best Wishes, HHH
