- About The Experience
This villa in Lombardy is just a short stroll from scenic Lake Como and the small-town charm of the lakeside town of Argegno. Rail, ferry, and even a cable care are all within walking distance, making the villa a convenient base from which to explore the picturesque towns, dramatic mountain vistas, and pristine lakes of Northern Italy and nearby Switzerland. Located on a large estate with a manicured garden and private pool, this villa is ideal for a large group of family and friends.
- Location Description
This property is located overlooking Lake Como, and 800 meters from the picturesque small town of Argegno. Situated on the shore of Lake Como and crossed by the Telo River, Argegno has an abundance of natural beauty and opportunities for outdoor recreation including hiking, horseback riding, golf, and tennis. The town’s narrow walkways offer restaurants, shops, and historic sites. The nearby town of Pigra, which located atop a dramatic plateau, holds panoramic views of the lake and the 16th century Oratory of San Rocco, and is accessible from Argegno via cable car – a trip worth making for the breathtaking 800-meter ascent alone! Argegno is also a convenient base for exploring Lake Como, with both passenger and car ferry service around the lake. Day trips can include Lugano, in Switzerland, and Milan.
