Imagine sunning yourself by the poolside, whilst surveying the panorama of Lake Como and the nearby mountains and all this within a 3 minute drive of the quaint lakeside village of Argegno with its buzzing Piazza with wine bars and restaurants. This stunning location has everything! It is both private and tranquil on a hillside above the lakeside village of Argegno. The privately owned properties are approached from a narrow private road and each property has been designed with privacy in mind with plenty of outside areas to sunbathe and BBQ. The properties are all brand new. All properties have stunning lake views from their private balconies and terraces. The location benefits from maximum sunshine, all day long, due to its hillside position. The 3 villas each have their own private pool. The apartments have a shared pool between only 4 apartments.
Hello, I am Property Manager and have been based on Lake Como since 1997 and was the first company set up on the lake to deal with the English-speaking rental market. Hence I have a long established reputation to maintain and take on only the cream of the hundreds of properties that I am offered each year. This means that you can be sure that your holiday will run smoothly from booking to departure. You can book with confidence, knowing that the property you book, will be exactly as described. I am happy to answer any questions about any of our properties, as I know them all intimately. Whilst you are on holiday here, I am only ever a phone call away. I speak Italian and know the area inside out and am happy to share this knowledge to ensure that you have the holiday of a lifetime.
Beverley Rosen purchased this villa in 2009
This has to be the most stunning location on the Lake. We had been searching for the perfect plot of land since arriving here 15 years ago. We finally found it just 7 years ago and then had to go through the bureaucratic nightmare of planning permission. But finally at the end of summer 2009 we moved into our dream home here and we love it and think you will too! The views are truly panoramic. The location as peaceful and unspoilt as you would expect from a tiny hamlet, yet within a 3-5 minute drive of the bustling lake side village of Argegno, where you can find everything from fine dining to cheap pizzas, great wine bars with free food at aperitivi time every day and a lake side lido where you can soak up the sun, if you can drag yourself away from the villa's lake view pool.
The location is truly panoramic, being located on a steep hillside. As well as stunning lake views, you also have the backdrop of magestic mountains.
Preferred change over date in peak season is Saturday. There is flexibility out of season.

Please treat yourself with a stay in Villa Rosa in amazing Argegno. From the house you get the most incredible view over Lake Como, and the city of Argegno gives you a local feel, in the otherwise quite busy tourist area around the lake.
A 3-minute drive down hill takes you to the lakeside of Argegno, where you will find a lakeside lido where you can sunbathe and swim safely in the lake. There are several other lidos within easy driving distance with pools and sunbathing area as well as restaurant facilities e.g. Villa Olmo, Cadenabbio and Menaggio.

A popular destination for tourists, Argegno is situated in a large inlet on the western shore of Lake Como at the mouth of the Val d’Intelvi. It has a pleasant climate and is mild even in the winter months. With its’ beautiful panoramic location, one can see from the headland of Bellagio to the north and as far as Nesso towards the south. Argegno offers a surprising amount of facilities for a quaint lakeside fishing village – 5 good restaurants/pizzerias, 2 excellent wine bars (Enoteca and Bar Colombo), serving free snacks at aperitivo time every day. There are 2 banks with cash points and a small store. And you won’t be able to resist Andrea’s home-made ice creams (made with whatever is available fresh that day, including cucumber!). The scent of the bakery will draw you up the narrow alleyways to find fresh brioche (croissants) and bread, baked daily on the premises by Louisa. Buy fresh vegetables from Mario and ask him for one of his superb recipes – always served with smile and he speaks excellent English. If that wasn’t enough, the village also now boasts a beautician and 2 hairdressers! Argegno is also within striking distance of all Lake Como’s treasures, as it is a main bus and ferry stop-off point for the rest of the lake. Villa Balbianello (Star Wars & James Bond) is just around the corner, Villa Carlotta a short ferry ride away, as are Bellagio, Menaggio and Varenna – get a centre lake ticket and visit all three in one day. The village is certainly of Roman origin, as it owes its’ name to the consul Publio Cesio Archigene. At one time Argegno was part of a defensive system, which extended as far as the ancient villa of Lenno and the Isola Comacina to obstruct the passage of invaders.
