Guestbook comments from the manager

We wanted to thank you for the wine and to say how much we absolutely loved your apartment. Sian was very impressed with her room! What an amazing view. I'm surprised you can bare to leave it. We enjoyed our evenings sat on the balcony watching the boats coming and going and the sun setting. We definitely thought you had a better view than George Clooney !We really came back feeling rested and now have all our lovely photos to remind us of our very happy holiday in Argegno. With our thanks From Reg, Jane and Sian

Your apartment exceeded our expectations.We couldn't of asked for more.Weather was absolutely brilliant. Views excellent, people very friendly. Went to St Moritz, it was snowing . the drive there was brilliant. We took the ferry to Bellagio took the funicular to Pigra. Walked up and down to square so many times. Happy Hours in Cafe Colombo. I could go on and on. Thanks once was a brilliant holiday. Anne and Arnie

Wow - what a view!

  • 4 of 5

Stunning views from the apartment which is comfortable if a little basic.

A 1k walk up/down the hill to the town centre where you'll find some lovely restaurants and even lovelier people running them! Boat hire from Turati Centro a must do. Ferries around the lake from the pier very convenient. Lido a bit pricey to get to the lake for a swim. Hire a bike for a ride around the lake (or up the hills if you feel fit!). Bit of a trek to the supermarket in Lenno or Como, and limited "corner shop" options in Argegno. The town itself is beautifully situated for that view up the lake to the mountains. Struck us that everywhere on the lake requires a compromise between view, all-day sunshine, local facilities (shops, restaurants, bars, coffee shops etc), lake access, things to do etc and Argegno seems as good a compromise as we could find!

David is also a very attentive owner who made our stay very pleasant.

Only notes about this apartment which take the star off...if it had more outside space in the sunshine (which you lose in the afternoon) it would be ideal. Also it is sandwiched between top and ground floor apartments owned by the same person who is doing building works alongside at the moment (which according to David he shouldn't be during the rental season!). And finally, you have to park your car a little way away.

Great view but very noisy

  • 2 of 5

Argegno is a fantastic little town, the resturants, bars and ice cream really make it. The view from this apartment is beautiful but is spoiled by the constant (24 hour), noise from the road below the balcony. The beds are comfortable and clean but the decor is quite tired looking and the shower could do with been changed. You don't need a car to stay here as the local shops provided us with everything we needed but be warned, the walk back up from the town is tough and we are a fairly fit family. The owner arranged a taxi when we arrived which we appreciated but he wasn't always easy to get in touch with. The rental boats in the town were a firm favourite with my sons and we all loved the Argegno bistro, cafe Colombo and the pizzeria. The cable car was also worth the visit.

Owner's Response: Hi Paula Thank you for your kind comments with regard to the village of Argegno and the views from the property. I am however, surprised with some of your other comments and your very low 2 star rating. The property is freshly painted every year so I am puzzled by your 'tired decor' comment. Soft furnishings, linens etc. are replaced every year. Also I am by your comments with regard to contacting me. I count 26 emails and many phone calls including arranging the taxi to be collected from the airport and returned in time for your early morning flight. Perhaps it was the time you could not contact me when you arrived due to your network problems. I did however arrive within 3 mins of your arrival after receiving a call from the driver. As I live within a 3 minute walk from the village I was always on hand if you needed anything and was happy that during the times that we met in the village that you had no problems with the property. It is such a pity that you did not take the time then to voice any of your concerns and I would have done my utmost to ensure that you had a more pleasurable experience. Argegno is a lakeside town and the main lakeside road runs through it. As mentioned in previous emails you have a trade off, if you want to be close to the lake and its amenities you must be close to the road. Should you wish a quieter holiday you must go further into the mountains, away from the lake and all amenities. (Shops, villages,etc.) This is true for all properties are close to the lake. It is true that this public road is open for traffic 24 hours a day but traffic volumes die down in the evening, to the occasional car passing by. It picks up again in the morning and generally the double glazed windows provide enough sound insulation to deal with the occasional night- time motorists. Of course if you are particularly sensitive to traffic noise this may be a bit of an issue The walk back from the village is a bit steep (for 70 metres) at the start but once on the road it is quite pleasant and we have had many clients (including many elderly people) who enjoyed the walk. It is because of the elevated position and proximity to the lake, that the property enjoys the beautiful views that you enjoyed and if you took this away the property would not have had this breathtaking vista that you loved. I am glad that you took advantage all the tips and recommendations that I gave you and hope they helped you enjoy your time on the lake. Regards David

Myself and my family spent 10 wonderful days in this beautiful apartment in July. Although we were not very fortunate with the weather it certainly did not impede on our enjoyment of this wonderful place. We were so happy with the apartment and especially all its lovely home comforts. We loved having the TV and playstation for the children on the many rainy days that we had. It certainly kept the children entertained. There were also books and board games left for our use. We have rented many apartments over the years and honestly this was by far the best we have ever rented. The owner David was so lovely to deal with from the initial booking to meeting us on arrival and answering all our many questions. We had a thunder/lighting storm on one of our days and lost power, we called David and within in 5 mins he was at the house and had the problem sorted immediately (it was just a trip switch). It is so nice to know that if there are any problems that the owner is there on hand.

I cant wait to return to Argegno and hopefully next time we will be a little luckier with the weather:-)!!!

Owner's Response: Hi Paula It was such a pity that this Summer was not 'the best' weather wiser but I am happy that you enjoyed your time in the property. Having had young children ourselves we do know its important to have facilities during wet days and I am glad that the children made use of the games etc. I look forward to meeting you when you come back to the lake. Kindest Regards David

Wonderful Argegno

  • 5 of 5

Having spent many hours deciding on the correct holiday property to celebrate my husbands 50th Birthday we were truly blessed to have chosen this wondeful property. Without a shadow of doubt the views are out of this world and we found it very hard to drag ourselves away from the large balcony which we used at every possible moment. The property itself is beautiful and so homely with everything you could wish for and more supplied by the owners. David (owner) met us and brought us to the property on arrival and got us settled in. He spent quite a considerable amount of time with us and answered all our questions along with giving us his wonderful local knowledge of Argegno and Lake Como in general. The flat is very large and was perfect in every way for our family of 5. The 2 bedrooms are fitted with king sized beds along with a single bed in each room. The decor was magnificent our daughters loved the colourful bedroom. The front bedroom has 2 large picture windows. We cooked in several nights during our 2 week stay and the kitchen was very well equipped. We also used the bbq on a few evenings.

The charming village of Argegno is just a short walk downhill and we walked here most days leaving the car behind ( A car is not really necessary at the property). We were spoilt for choice with eating options but certainly our favourite was Da Emilio just behind the main sq. We also loved the little enoteca for aperitivo in the evenings.

We absolutely loved this little piece of heaven and cant recommend it highly enough. We cant wait to return.

Owner's Response: Hi Rog I am so happy that I got a chance to meet you and your charming family and that you enjoyed our property. Argegno really is a little gem and it was great to see the girls try wake boarding( sooner them than me). I hope that you have a great year and I look forward to seeing you again on the lake. All the best David
