“Must be the best view on Lake Como”
Reviewed September 10, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

people found this review helpful

We stayed at Paul & Nicola's apartment in Argegno in early September 2016. The owners are welcoming and helpful. We usually vary our holidays between B&Bs, hotels and self-catering. Having stayed in many self-catering places, this is the best equipped we have ever seen! Every kitchen utensil you could need, tubs to take out food and a welcome pack which included eggs, butter, milk, tea, fruit, fruit juice, wine, beer etc. etc. The bathroom was also very well equipped. We wish all self catering properties would do all this. The TV had many channels including all the usual UK ones. This bright and modern apartment could not have been cleaner and it is a good size for two people.The property has about 70 steps from the parking but, when you get there, the view would make those with fancy villas on Lake Como envious. Almost everywhere on the lake road gets traffic noise and this is no exception. However, the double glazing was very effective and traffic noise was not a problem at night. Thanks Paul and Nicola for an excellent stay.

Paul and Nicola welcomed us to their stunning apartment. We were later arriving than expected and they very kindly left us homemade food to sample on arrival thus saving us the trouble of finding somewhere to eat late in the day. They had a welcome pack of fresh food in the fridge along with a bottle of wine. The apartment was immaculately clean and everything you could possibly need was provided. The views from the balconies and bedroom were breathtaking and it was delightful to wake up to such a beautiful view. Paul and Nicola explained everything about the flat and the surrounding area to us and also had a folder with places to visit and how to get there. The village is only a 5 minute walk from the apartment and there is a delightful bakers a short distance from the apartment. We had a wonderful holiday and look forward to visiting again.

I found Paul & Nicola's place after reading Paul's book and I was so glad that I did. We wanted a relaxing start to our honeymoon at Lake Como and their place was the perfect one to do it at. We rented a car and drove from Milan, their directions were perfect (we took advantage of going in to Bennett's grocery store that they mentioned in the directions as there was not any large stores in Argegno). The parking seemed a bit precarious for us Americans used to our full size SUV's and giant parking lots but it was just fine for the time we were there. The place is quiet, clean, modern and quite spacious. It had absolutely everything we needed and then some for our stay. It's a short, scenic walk into Argegno which has several great restaurants and bars. We took the boat to Bellagio one day, the Funvivo up to Pigra another and even took a day trip to Switzerland. It's a great area and the views are just flat out amazing. I'm quite sure I could have sat on the balcony forever and never gotten tired of the views.

We arrived at this beautiful apartment to a very welcoming Paul and Nicola who showed us around our well stocked home for a fortnight. We were amazed at how much trouble this very personable couple went to, to ensure our stay was as comfortable and smooth running as it could possibly be. They provided a lot of knowledge about the area, boat times, bus information and suggested places of interest. It was definitely an advantage to us personally not to have to drive, which made for a very relaxing holiday. The location and outstanding views from the apartment is second to none. Will we be returning? You betcha!

“Super Flat Find on Lake Como”
Reviewed October 10, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

people found this review helpful

If you are going to Lake Como, Italy and want to experience the real Italy (on Lake Como) this is the place to stay. It is very convenient at KM 17 on the west leg of the lake. It has all been re-done and has every convenience one would want. It is within walking distance (300m) of the small village of Argegno which is very quaint and has everything one needs for a stay in a flat - including great restaurants. It is a short drive or bus ride to a larger supermarket if one needs this type of amenity, but Argegno has all the shops one needs for a short stay.

It is very convenient to the boat launch (and a bus stop) in Argegno, from which you can get to anyplace on the lake. It is a short drive (17Km) from Como as well as Malpensa ( MXP) airport in Milano (allow about 1.0-1.25 hrs to drive to/from MXP; then time for turning in the car, check-in, etc. as you deem indicated and appropriate). It is a short taxi ride from the train station in Como as well.

There is also a bus stop literally steps from the entrance to the flat that is convenient if one chooses not to have a car.

The hosts Paul and Nicole were very, very gracious and handled the booking and other arrangements in a most professional and efficient manner.

The flat had the fridge stocked for breakfast the next morning as we arrived too late in the evening to shop - including a beer, a bottle of wine and water!

The flat had all the amenities required for normal housekeeping, pots & pans, dish soap, basic condiments and spices; including tea, coffee, etc., etc. It was well-equipped with towels, linens, an ironing board and iron and had a washer available one floor down from the flat.

The only negative is the Wi-Fi and I believe this is more a function of the Italian Wi-Fi system than the flat itself. It works, but it continually goes off and on. Having said this, we had four devices on the system, as well as the hosts devices, so one needs to be a bit careful as to where the issue w/the Wi-Fi lies.

At any rate, the flat is one of the most outstanding VRBO properties we have stayed over the years. We highly recommend it to anyone wanting to stay in a flat in and around Lake Como. I would also say Paul and Nicole are two of the most delightful hosts we have experienced.

Unfortunately, all good things had to come to an end when we left your wonderful villa/apartment on the Saturday morning 22/08/15, after a three week stay. Ro & I would like to say “a really big thank you” to you both, for making our holiday in Argegno – just superb.
Your wonderful hospitality along with the accommodation - with one of the best views in the world, is embedded in our memories for ever. Your attention to detail and your kindness exceeded all our expectations; you are truly nice people and the perfect hosts, for this idyllic and stunning holiday location.

Thank you again, Nicole & Paul - and all the very best for the future.
