Additional Location Information
Being just 5 minutes (on the way down, on the way up allow a bit more time!) from the gorgeous lakeside town of Argegno you have no need for a car if that is your preference. The walk down to the village is easy, but bear in mind the elevated position will require a little more energy on the way back up!
The property is located about 5 mins walk down to 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 .
Due to its elevated position you will encounter hairpin bends, the roads are of excellent quality and should be easily navigated by an average driver. The private driveway unmade and may be considered steep by some.
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 it own pebble beach with an adjoining pizzeria where you can hire sun loungers etc. or fish to your hearts content
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).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. .There is a new restaurant, recently opened in the village piazzo beside the fountain, called La Piazzetta which serves a wide selection of food from pizza (best in Argegno) to fine dining i.e. fresh tuna tar. The owner Christian is very nice and will try to cater for all your dining needs. Others restaurants we recommend are, Villa Belvedere, beside the ferry port 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 new wine bar Enotica Argegno is only recently opened with a fantastic range of good wines available very cheaply. This also serves free antipasti in the evening. Next door there is a pub called Il Covo which stays open till late and is a popular destination for the younger generations.
