“A beautiful villa with stunning views of Lake Como”
Reviewed May 1, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We have just returned from a wonderful 7 night stay at Villa Rosa in Argegno .
Lake Como is one of the most stunning lakes in Italy , with quaint little villages dotted around the lake .
The detached villa is situated on a hill overlooking the lake .
The view from the living room and balcony is breathtaking.
The villa had its own , very inviting , private pool. , as well as 4 spacious double bedrooms .
3 of the bedrooms have a double bed in each of them ( in one of them there was an additional single bed ). The 4 th bedroom had twin beds .
We cooked some lovely fresh meals in the stylish fitted kitchen , as well as enjoying some excellent days out at some of the nearby cosy restaurants ,all at very reasonable prices
We hired a car as we flew to Milan ,Malpensa airport. The parking space is a few metres from the villa .
Argegno village is small but a great place with many good restaurants/cafes. The village has a lot of interesting history.
It is possible to reach other villages on the lake using the regular boats that stop at the harbour.
Bellagio , one of the prettiest villages , is a 20 minute boat ride but well worth a day trip. It is very popular with George Clooney and other celebrities.
Also Menaggio , a 20 minute drive , again, well worth a visit
The nearby town of Lenno has a charming street market every Tuesday.
Beverley the property manager gave us very precise instructions to help us arrive at the villa easily.
She provided us with many details of all of the local attractions , which we found very helpful too.
We really enjoyed our holiday and look forward to returning in the future.

“Beautiful Stay at Villa Rosa”
Reviewed August 24, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We had a wonderful family reunion at Villa Rosa and enjoyed every minute of it. The Villa was clean, well equipped and had an breath taking view! Beverley and Jonny were supper hosts and a great help. I highly recommend Villa Rosa for any occasion.

“Great villa in subperb location”
Reviewed May 6, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

The villa is located really high above Argegno (very steep road to the house!) with ample parking space and a spectacular view over the lake. The area around the house is really nice & quiet. The villa is very modern and equiped with everything one can think off (full kitchen, wasching machine, free wireless internet, TV, ...) The pool and the terrace are amazing.
The service provided by Beverly and Jonathan was top-notch. All our inquiries were handled immediately and to our full satifaction and with some valuable insider-tips for what to do at the lake.

We'd booked this incredible villa for a bachelorette weekend away and it far exceeded our expectations. The photos don't do it justice. It is spacious with the most incredible views of the lake. A short walk to a lovely local restaurant and the town not far from there. Johnny and Beverley were so accommodating and helpful. Would HIGHLY recommend staying here. I know we'll be going back!!

“Fantastic Villa”

person found this review helpful

A group of us stayed in Villa Rosa in September 2014 and had the most amazing long weekend. The villa is absolutely perfect in every way - Beautiful views, lovely accomodation, a great pool and the very best hosts - Beverley could not have done more to make our stay easier, from booking us restaurants, boat trips and general advice on the area. Argegno is a lovely little town with easy access to the rest of Lake Como making it a great place for exploring the lake. I would highly reccommend this vila

“Great place in the mountains, with a pool.”
Reviewed July 27, 2014 for a stay in July 2014
1
person found this review helpful

Villa Rosa was a great location for our holiday and served well as a base to explore the region. The pool is a great thing to have and is suitably large for relaxing with a larger group, and in July the water was just perfect for refreshing and relaxing swim. The view from the Villa to the lake and moutains is just magnificent. The photos in the advertisement are accurate and the villa is as advertised (i.e. great). Layout is functional and the terrace and small garden around the pool provide good places for relaxing and enjoying the sun. The Villa is rather nicely furnished place, and all necessary items and equipment is provided, including well equipped kitchen. Large gas BBQ and the sun loungers are great for relaxing as well. There is no sound system though, but this is understandable to provide peaceful environment for the neighbours as well. The Villa is located above the small village of Muronico and is the last one on the road, so it is very peaceful location with no traffic or other noise.

A slight compromise that you have to make for the magnificent view is that the road access to the villa is very steep and rather narrow. Being used to flatter country, the first trip up was quite an experience for us. However, you will get used to that and after a couple of runs it was no problem. If you can, do get a small car(s), and preferably not with the smallest engine, so that driving up the narrow, steep road is easier. The location is also quite a way from the town of Argegno. The good thing is that you have a great view and your own peace, but trip to the village takes some time. Car is therefore quite necessary. As a base to explore the lake, the location is really good as is kinda in the middle and quite a many things can be accessed with a quick drive (such as magnificent walking paths of Rifugio Menaggio area and the Greenway, Lake Lugano, boats around the lake, Como, Milan, etc.).

The staff of the rental agency is very helpful. Contacts, payments, getting to the villa, handing of keys and deposit and everything else went as easily and smoothly as they possibly could, I would say that this was the easiest experience I have ever had with renting.

“Great place to stay!”
Reviewed June 26, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We had 8 night stay at Villa Rosa in Argegno with family and friends. There was more than enough room for 8 adults and 3 kids. There´s nice kitchen with washing machine which helped a lot. House was clean and in good shape and everything worked great. Pool area was great place to hang out and views from living room and balcony were amazing. Best moments of our trip was having breakfast or dinner on balcony together. View is amazing.

Argegno village is small but great place with many good restaurants/cafes. You can get to other villages or Como by a boat from harbour. Walk from Argegno to Villa Rosa is not very long but steep hill makes it pretty tough. It´s still very nice walk with small paths and great views if you don´t have to hurry. We made it most of the days with three kids in strollers so it´s manageable. Villa is located in the end of the road which makes it very peaceful. From the villa road continues as walking path which takes you to Pigra village. If you don´t want to walk both ways or at all you can get there by cable car from Argegno

Property managers were very helpful and friendy all the time during our stay. Our stay was near perfect and I would recommend this to anybody who is not afraid of walking some steep hill.
