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

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

Then follow the main road to a small roundabout and follow signs for MENAGGIO (S340), which is the 3rd exit off the roundabout. IF YOU WISH TO STOP FOR PROVISIONS, YOU WILL SEE THE BENNET SUPERMARKET/CENTRO LARIO COMPLEX HERE ON YOUR LEFT (see below for more info and opening times).

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.

Continue through the village and out the other side, over the bridge and keeping the lake on your right hand  side. You will soon see a signpost for Colonno. Simply drive up to this sign and then turn immediately left, going steeply up the hill in the direction you have just come from.

The property is just 2 minutes from here.

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.



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

Security Deposit

Please note that as per web site terms and conditions there may be a refundable damage deposit to be paid in cash on arrival. This would be shown on your booking form.

If there is a security deposit to pay on arrival, please ensure to have this available in cash on arrival, as our staff cannot hand keys over to you without payment.

Check-in time

Please note check-in time is between 4pm and 8pm and check-out is before 10am on day of departure. If you do arrive early, please call us and we will let you check-in earlier, if property is ready. There is a late check-in fee of €25 between 20:00 and 22:00 and €50 after that.

Child Cots

If you require a child cot, we can hire the fold-up travel-style cots for you at €25 per week. Please advise us in advance if you require one.

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.
