DIRECTIONS FROM MILAN & BERGAMO AIRPORTS TO ARGEGNO – please print this off and bring it with you.

Google maps location of meeting point – just put Villa Concetta, Argegno into Google Maps and you will find Via Cappelletti immediately after it.

Take the motorway for MILAN (A8), follow until you pick up signs for COMO and LAGHI – the Lakes (A9). Follow Como motorway, pass through the Pay Barrier, taking the right lanes if you want to pay by cash or take the left lanes and follow VIACARD signs if you want to pay by credit card. Ignore the Como Sud exit, and the Como Monteolimpino exits and take the next exit for LAGO DI COMO. If you go past this, you will end up at the border for Switzerland, so be careful not to miss it.

Please make sure to call us as you exit the motorway at Como North/Lago to give us time to get to the meeting point. Please call this number and speak to Jonathan – (0039) 3402 442703

After that go through a long tunnel and follow the road, with the lake always on your right you will go through another tunnel at Brienno and then shortly afterwards you will enter Argegno.

Once in Argegno, pass through the village, over a bridge, and take the first turning on your left out of the village – you will see the signpost number 1. as above – for Lanzo, San Fedele, Castiglione, Dizzasco  – turn left here. This is the SP13 Via Provinciale.

Continue up the hill and you will pass 4 chevron >>>> signed bends. Simply follow this windy road until you see a sign for La Brea on the right hand side (signpost number 2 above). It is a blue sign and it is on a small piece of grassland. In google maps this is just after Villa ConcettaTurn right here and park in the small car park immediately on your right, as indicated on the photo – note if you see the La Brea restaurant itself (about 200 meters ahead, you have gone too far and will need to turn round and go back to this little blue signpost).

Give us another quick call once you reach this meeting point and one of our team will be with you in less than 5 minutes… the properties are just 2 minutes from here.



Dinner on arrival night

In peak season, if you are arriving on a Friday, Saturday or Sunday night and wish to eat out, we strongly advise that you book a restaurant (or we can do this for you), as the village is extremely busy and most restaurants have queues. An ideal choice for your first night, would be La Brea, as you can walk there in 10 mins from the property and the owner will give you a lift home after dinner. For this and other restaurants, follow the link to our free restaurant guide

Provisions and shopping:

You may wish to shop in Como for provisions on your way, as the local shops close at 19.30. The best place would be the Bennet shopping centre, which is located just as you come off the motorway, at the end of the road, instead of taking the exit for Menaggio, take the next one and that will take you into the Bennett car park. It is open until 9pm. Or the local shops are open on Sunday mornings until mid-day. Please remember that you need to check in to your apartment by 8pm.
