About Enda Cunnane
I have worked and lived abroad for over 10 years and recently moved back to Ireland and I currently work in the west of Ireland. My wife Aoife is a primary school teacher; we have three small children aged 7,6,5 . Over the past few years, I have greatly enjoyed receiving enquiries and managing bookings from clients and receiving some great feedback on the apartment and the area. I try to ensure that I provide the personal and professional service level that holidaymakers are looking for and I firmly believe that the finish of this property is as high as you are likely to find anywhere around the lake. If you choose to rent it for your holiday, I'm sure you and your family will have a fantastic time in the area!
Enda Cunnane purchased this Apartment in 2008
Why Enda Cunnane chose Argegno
I went to Argegno for the first time for the wedding of a close friend and I could not get over the tranquil beauty of the location. Lake Como is a special part of the world, there's nothing better than waking up in the morning, looking out of the window, and seeing that beautful and tranquil lake. It's also a calming place for people of all ages....and there is plenty to do whether you're 2 years old or 80 years old. My wife and have always wanted a second home that we could use for ourself and our growing family, nicely furnished, with a lake view and swimming pool, convenient access to restaurants and bakeries and a village. Fortunately, an opportunity arose to buy the apartment and we were delighted to purchase the property as it is an area that we will happily visit again and again.
What makes this Apartment unique
We know what we are getting when we visit Argegno as it has all the things we looked for when we searched to buy a property. We normally fly into Milan and it takes approx 1.15 hrs to drive to the property from the airport. The biggest benefit of the property is its location; just 2 mins walk to the village and lake ferry. It has secure underground parking and a private swimming pool. The apartment also has a lovely private garden which is ideal for enjoying the view, barbecuing and chilling. The small restaurant on Isola Island is my own personal favourite place to visit nearby - serves an 8 course menu and features photos of famous visitors including Jennifer Anniston and Henry Kissinger. There are also many restaurants and plenty good ones in Argegno – Villa Belvedere is my favourite restaurant in the village

This property was an excellent location so close to centre of town. Clean and comfortable with everything we needed. Directions could have been much clearer. It took us well over 1/2 hour to fine the actual apartment. Other than that - perfect! Thank you
Thanks so much for the feedback and we would love to have you to stay again in future!
We really enjoyed our stay at Enda’s Apartment. The location in the town of Argegno is great for exploring Como. The Ferry is close by, the car ferry to Varena and Bellagio are 7 and 5 km, respectively. The gelatoria in Argegno and restaurants are excellent but you have to be fit to walk to them. Parking is convenient but getting in and out of the Salita Brenta is a little tricky.
Thanks for the feedback on for taking such good care of the place - it was a pleasure having you to stay and would love to welcome you back in future
A little hard to find but worth the effort
Enda was an amazing host and even scrunched into our tiny overloaded car to get us the final 1/4 mile from town to his condo. We had 2 different GPS’s sending us in circles. Do watch the Utube video (and save to your phone for reference) once inside, the condo was perfect. There was a great outdoor lawn, which unfortunately we could not use due to rain. We did however appreciate the view of Lake Como. The condo was clean and everything functioned well. The unit was setup for cooking but unless you plan ahead and shop before Argegno, there are few real stores around except for the big farmers market on Mondays. There are however no shortage of restaurants
Hi Gary and Molly - it was a pleasure to meet you both and thanks so much for really taking care of the place. Appreciate the feedback and I hope you have a great onward trip in Italy
The house was cleane and so so costly and amazing inside and outside, well-equipped with everything we needed , it has also a wonderful view!
The owner is very accomodating and friendly! Had such an amazing holiday, thanks a lot
Thanks for the feedback and great to hear you enjoyed the holiday!
Great stay in a lovely part of the world
The apartment was clean and cosy and only a few minutes walk away from the oldest part of the village/town where we enjoyed a few Proseco-fuelled evenings with the locals. We even had a view of Lake Como from the garden at the back of the flat. I was tempted to take a dip in the lake despite the winter temperatures. But I'll come back in the summer to do that instead.
Everything in the apartment worked fine and the location was central yet quiet. The steep hills up to the apartment were fun to negotiate in our rental car. I think we amused the neighbours with our revving and maneuvering.
My only complaint is that George Clooney wasn't in town for a Christmas drink. His place is just down the road, in the next village. Maybe he'll be back in the summer too... :-)
I can certainly recommend the apartment and the location in general. And the food!
many thanks for your feedback on the apartment and would love to welcome you at any time in future kind regards Enda
A comfortable apartment in a lovely town with views of a beautiful scene.
The apartment had everything we needed and a very accommodating and friendly owner. We had questions and he responded immediately by phone and email including contacting the local person to come and explain all we asked. The property was well situated and a short though steep walk to the village where there were a variety of good restaurants and the all important ferry landing. We didn't really need a car. Of course the setting was breathtaking. All and all a very nice stay.
Thanks so much for taking the time to feedback and just to say it was a pleasure dealing with you and appreciate your patience on the satellite box issue - thanks so much
