    “The shopping in Argegno are very bad. The nearest supermarket is 15 km away (about 20 minutes in the car). Of the restaurants we were unfortunately very disappointed. We had dinner at La Piazzetta and Hotel Argegno and found the food rather average and partially really bad. Also a nice walk along the water is, unfortunately, hardly possible, since there is no promenade or even a sidewalk and it is forced to go directly to the street -at the traffic, but not empfehlenswert-. A beach one seeks in vain in Argegno, so who has beach vacation in mind should further north to try his luck. Really recommended are the beaches in Dongo. The only highlight: The Ice Cream Parlour - Really delicious and big balls!”

    “Argegeno is a pretty small place. The main square in the village - where there are few restaurants to eat - unfortunately located right on the main street - quite a lot of traffic. So rather less suited for a stroll in the evening. Since then you have been going by car about 15 minutes to eg to Tremezzo. Highly recommended is a trip on the cable car in Argegno go up to Pigra. A beautiful little village with charm. From up there you have a gigantic view over the lake.”

    “There is a supermarket there, however not, but the next one is not far away. In the town itself but you can buy little things. The village itself has been a good experience. Restaurants there are enough and a really great ice cream shop. Highly recommended. Basically, we can only recommend as a holiday destination of Lake Como. The lake and nature are beautiful. The people there are very friendly and accommodating.”

This is how holiday rental owners described Argegno

There are many excellent restauruant and café bars in the village to choose from, some favourties below:
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. La Piazzetta ...

serves a wide selection of food from pizza (best in Argegno) to fine dining i.e. fresh tuna tar. Others restaurants we recommend are, Villa Belvedere, beside the ferry port, Emillio's in the harbour (great fresh fish dishes), Barchetta in the village square-good for pasta and traditional lake food,hotel Argegno-Fantastic pizza and pasta 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 wine bar Enotica Argegno, run by brothers Alberto and Luca, is only recently opened with a fantastic range of good wines available very cheaply. This also serves free antipasti.
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).
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 Café Colombo 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.

Within a 10 min drive north you have a huge selection of beaches, both sand (man-made) and pebble all along the lakeside. Swimming there is very safe as there are no tidal currents to worry about. Recommended is a day out on the lake on a boat which can be hired from the local boat yard ‘Turatti’ in Argegno (200 metres past the church, opposite the cable car station), tell them we sent you. No experience is necessary as the boats are very simple to operate and there are no hazards like shallows or sandbars (Como is the deepest lake in Europe). There are plenty of places to tie up for lunch or you can simply stop the boat are jump off for a swim in the warm freshwater. There is a fantastic lakeside pool (lido) in Menaggio 15min drive with an on-duty lifeguard.There is a large supermarket in Lenno (10 min drive away, north) or a shopping centre with hypermarket in Como town (20 mins drive ,south).For some retail therapy I would recommend Bellagio with current Milan fashions and some good bargains to be had in Italian designer sunglasses, handbags etc .Como is famous in the region for its silk. There is a huge outlet centre called Foxtown (info on net) just over the border in Switzerland (15 mins from Como) where the Milanese go to do serious shopping. Don't forget to bring your passport.
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.
With regard to place to visit top priority is a slow ferry on the lake to anywhere!
Best places are Bellagio (a must for lunch), Menaggio, and Como lakefront (also great for shopping with a flea market on Thursday mornings and all day Saturday).
You must visit some of the villas with the most popular being Villa Carlotta this has beautiful gardens and is open to the public.
Villa Balbainello is another beautiful villa to visit. It now has a new next door neighbour – Virgin boss Richard Branson.
We have included some information leaflets in the 'Va Bene' folder with regard to places to visit.
Of course Switzerland is only 30 mins drive away and Lake Lugano is well worth a visit. A trip to St Moritz (1.5 hrs) will certainly be one of the highlights of your trip. I do hope this is of some help to you and don't hesitate to ask any more questions that you may have.

Rent a holiday home in Lake Como in the heart of Lombardy

Lake Como | A holiday rental or holiday house in Lake Como is the best way to experience one of the most beautiful regions in Italy. Shaped like an elongated 'Y', in the northern region of Lombardy, Lake Como's glacial waters stretch from forested hills to the alps, its shoreline populated with charming villas and resort towns. A holiday house or holiday rental provides the freedom to explore the region's wide range of attractions, from vibrant marketplaces in old town squares to a stroll in the crisp mountain air of a secluded valley. Rent a holiday home in Lake Como and enjoy a satisfying holiday for all the family.

Beautiful holiday rentals for active sports lovers

In addition to its sublime natural beauty, Lake Como offers a wealth of sporting activities. A holiday house near the lakeshore is the ideal base for water skiing, windsurfing and sailing and many companies offer boat and equipment rental close by. Thanks to the extensive network of trails which cut through the surrounding hills offering spectacular panoramic views, hiking is another popular pastime that can be enjoyed whilst staying at a holiday home in Lake Como. In particular, the west side of the lake is known for the 10 km Lake Como Greenway, while the quaint town of Menaggio provides dozens of trails and a friendly tourist office to help you locate them.

Taste traditional Italian life with a Lake Como holiday apartment

People have been drawn to the idyllic shores of Lake Como for centuries but with historic towns and villages bursting with Italian charm, the area has more to offer than just its beautiful scenery. A holiday apartment in the town of Como, for instance, offers the sights and sounds of a busy Saturday farmer's market, unchanged for centuries inside the town's medieval walls. With its ancient alleyways winding down to the shoreside, Varenna, on the east side of Lake Como, is perhaps the region's most elegant town. A short climb up the hill to Vezio Castle offers superb panoramic views across Lake Como.
