    Charming exclusive villa at the lake of Como

    Francesco was a great host, very helpful, professional and charming. It is a huge house with plenty of space, directly at the lake. The kitchen is perfectly equipped. We felt at home from the first moment. There aren’t any wishes unfullfilled. We already booked for next year. Thank you, Francesco, to enable this fantastic holiday!

    Absolutely stunning!

    This property is outstanding! The craftsmanship of the home is amazing, top quality everywhere. It was immaculately maintained inside and out. Francesco went above and beyond, meeting us on arrival and departure and keeping in touch in case we needed anything. The views are epic! We went sightseeing around Lake Como but always were glad to return to the home and the best view of all. Very convenient to Como and a nice walk to the village of Argegno. The house was quite spacious, there is a ping pong table in the basement. Francesco has an amazing wine cellar. The laundry facilities were a welcome luxury after a week of hotels. We really enjoyed the bocce field. Our only disappointment was having to leave this marvelous home after only 4 nights. I would highly recommend this home and would love to return someday.

    Convenient and comfortable plus fabulous hospitality. The description was spot on!

    Francesco was our host and our group of six could not have asked for anything more! He arranged a chef for our first evening, a boat tour of Lake Como the second day and transfers both to and from the villa. His English is excellent and communications before our arrival were on the spot. He also provided groceries to get us through day one and we selected reasonably priced wine from the wine cellar. The villa was charming, comfortable and situated nearby a small town. We would return again if we came back to the region!

    A perfect villa

    At the end of October 2019, our family (5 adults) spent 4 wonderful days at this fabulous villa. The photos accurately show its beauty, but the lake and surrounding landscape are even more beautiful. Francesco is an excellent and friendly host. He arranged for a driver to take us to/from the villa; for a chef to prepare us dinner at the villa; and for a tour of the lake on a venetian water taxi. The town of Argegno is a short walk from the villa (less than 15 minutes). It is picturesque and has a number of good restaurants. The entire area is lovely and the villa is better than advertised. Gracie, Francesco!

    A Fabulous Week on Lake Como

    We had a fabulous week in this lovely villa. We were a group of 8 with our 4 children and 2 partners. Francesco was a wonderful host, giving us a very warm welcome and arranging pasta-making, a private chef and boat hire. The villa is very comfortable, well equipped and in a really great position. We made very good use of the boccia court, and swam in the lake every day. We also enjoyed a few bottles of wine from the wine cellar! Argegno is a10 minute walk away, with bars, restaurants, general amenities and ferry stop. We had a great time exploring all the local landmarks by boat, bus, car, and even cable car from Argegno to Pigra, where the views across the lake are stunning!

    A memorable stay !

    My husband and I travelled with another couple to Lake Como and stayed at the house for 9 nights. The stunning views of the lake and the Alps in the background from the terrace was the experience we were looking for. The house is located in the perfect spot along the lake for sightseeing . The quaint town of Argegno is just a few minutes walk with numerous restaurants and a ferry to get to the other lake towns. The owner Franscesco was extremely gracious and helpful in making recommendations for things to do and places to eat. We could not have asked for a better time!

    We would return in a heartbeat

    Just looking at the photo of this house makes me feel wistful! We stayed for 10 days and wished it were for longer. The house itself is generous, well laid out and has everything you need. Cleaning is included and regular by the lovely Chica. The gardens are lovely and the view is one we found hard to beat in all the beautiful places we visited on the lake. It is a very special place. We hired the boat while we were there and it really made it extra wonderful - great to just nip to the boathouse and be able to explore this gorgeous part of the world. I think we just hit the very end of the (possibly already ended) summer season and it did not diminish our pleasure. The lake was quiet and we swam in many different spots. Even with slightly mixed weather, the layout of the house and the terrace meant that you could enjoy it in all its seasons- dramatic storms included. We were so impressed by Francesco who is such a lovely and welcoming host - nothing was ever a problem. He organised a small life vest for our toddler, suggested and made restaurant reservations, was easy to contact and so helpful in many different ways. We will definitely be back!

    Fabulous Lake Como Villa

    We stayed at the Villa when we came to the Lake Como area for our son’s wedding. The Villa was a perfect accommodation for our family to be together and relax between events at a local hotel. The beauty of the Villa on the lakefront and size of the property is incredible. The owner of the Villa was always accessible for questions and assistance with local drivers and village information. We look forward to our next visit to the Villa hopefully in the near future. Thank you for a fabulous vacation!

    Beautiful home with panaramic views of lake como.

    Francesco helped thru out the week with any of our needs or questions. The chef Francesco scheduled for us was incredible. The terrace is where you will spend 90% of your time. We had a water taxi pick us up at the house for a guided tour of lake. Bedrooms are spacious and home was very clean. We only sat in living room once because the terrace is so beautiful. Make sure for go to Albergo a restaurant in the village the owners were the best. This villa will always be on our list.

    Great Villa on Lake Como

    While visiting Italy, our group decided to stay in a Villa on Lake Como. We chose Francesco's villa and are so happy we did! Four couples were able to enjoy this wonderful place. The outdoor patio, looking out on Lake Como, is where we spent most of our time. Francesco arranged one night for a chef to come in and cook us a fabulous italian meal. He also helped us to arrange a boat tour of Lake Como. From this villa, we visited Lake Maggiore and took the train to Milan. Francesco was always so kind and available to help. He even brought us some breakfast goodies for or first day!
