Description from the owner
Crotto Letizia Tivano
Argegno, Lombardy, Italy
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.

What Past Guests Are Saying
Excellent quiet romantic location
My wife and I had the pleasure of a 6 night stay at Tivano apartment, and thoroughly recommend this apartment. Having chosen the apartment from the web, we arrived in argegno piazza and were met by Dario, the owner, who drove us and our bags up to the apartment.. Tivano is located a good uphill walk through the old village and away from the busy road, where we soon got to know the locations of the bakery, fruit shops, and wifi access bar. The view from the deck is magnificent, and even better since the web photos were taken, as a large amount of the vegetation has been removed, opening up a much wider vista over Lake Como. The apartment has an excellent bathroom and kitchen with all the basic requirements. Dario is an excellent but unintrusive host, and provided us with great advice about shops, restaurants, bus tickets, and boat trips. Argegno is a great location to relax as well as very central for day trips by bus and boat around and on Lake Como, and we would recommend this accommodation as an excellent stay for couples.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay so much and yes Argegno is a wonderful little village. I will pass on your kind words to Dario...he will be very pleased to hear your generous comments about his hospitality. He works very hard to ensure that guests have a wonderful time on the lake and his local knowledge is always most welcome by guests. We hope that you have taken back home some wonderful memories of this very special part of the world and would love to welcome you back at some time in the future.
