Additional Location Information
This stunning 2 bedroom penthouse apartment is situated only a 2 -minute stroll to the charming town of Argegno with narrow cobbled lanes and archways, the local panifico with aromas of freshly baked bread and 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.
This large contemporary penthouse apartment is serviced by its own elevator from the underground garage.
When you enter the apartment you are greeted by 4 ceiling to floor french doors that open out on to the large wraparound balcony with its own huge rooftop terrace . the perfect suntrap with amazing 180 degree views of the lake.
This stylish modern apartment had 2 sofas , a large flat screen sat TV Large dining table and cool chic kitchen.
The two large bedrooms have king sized beds, wardrobe and lockers. There is free WIFI throughout the apartment.
Two stunning Italian bathrooms complete this amazing penthouse property.
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 its own pebble beach with an adjoining pizzeria where you can hire sun loungers etc. or fish to your heart’s 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.
The village lies on the main lakeside road and therefore is on the main bus route up and down the lake .It also has a ferry port stop for passenger ferries (both slow ferry and hydrofoil) and these are a great way of seeing the lake, which is at its best when viewed from the water. You can get daily rambler tickets so you can hop on and off at your leisure. Bellagio is one town not to miss. Taxis are available from La Piazzetta restaurant in the village Public transport is both inexpensive and reliable and runs very frequently. Car hire is recommended as you need to explore the lake to optimize your time there although we prefer to laze on the balcony with a bottle of locally produced Prosecco and just watch the world pass by.
With regard to place to visit top priority is a slow ferry on the lake to anywhere!
Italian life around the lake starts very early (the local bakery is usually sold out of most of its bread by nine thirty) and ends quite early with dinner starting at about 7and bars closing around midnight. Also everywhere is very child friendly. Getting your timing right is very important as most shops close from 12.30 until 3 and most restaurants finish serving lunch at 2 with not another bite to be got until about 5 when they fire up their pizza ovens. There is a small shop in the village where you can get most of the basics but I suggest you go to in Bennet Shopping Centre in Como Nord where there is a very large supermarket, which will cater for all of your needs.
