Vista Lago is an elegantly restored villa nestled between the charming towns of Laglio and Tremezzo on the west shore of the picturesque Lake Como. The villa, due to its hilltop position, offers unparalleled views stretching from the headland of Bellagio in the north to Nesso in the south. Old world details, antique paintings, and luxurious furnishings blend seamlessly to create a timeless ambiance. Vista Lago offers a private, tranquil environment with access to some of the most beautiful towns in Europe. Only 1 kilometer away, there are shops, restaurants, coffee shops, bars, and a hydrofoil harbor and bus station connecting to Como. It is also possible to take a cable car up to Pigra and the nearby conservation area, situated on a plateau with beautiful views of the lake and of the pre-Alps. A historical 18-hole golf course is available 11 kilometers away.
Located in the residential area built on the side of the hill you can reach the lakeside village of Argengo in just a 10 minute walk through narrow cobbled alleyways that date back to Roman times, or by car on a road that winds down to the village. There is a small village just a few meters north of the villa with a very good restaurant.
The town of Argengo is a typical small lake village, a place you will welcome after a long day of sightseeing where you can relax and unwind among non-tourists, grab a coffee or a peaceful dinner in a local restaurant.
Here you have a boat dock, a small beach and a ferry stop. There is a waterside promenade, a bank and bar and restaurant and every Monday morning the market. There is also a small fruit and vegetable store, an ice cream shop and bakery. The supermarket is located in nearby Lenno for those that need to stock up the villa. From Argegno you can take the cable car to the town of Pirgra and Argegno- Cima della Duaria conservation area - a plateau that enjoys beautiful views of the lake and the pre-Alps.
Many guests enjoy this area of the western branch of Lake Como – due to it being quite narrow it offers you dramatic views of both the north and south areas of the lake as well as across the lake to its eastern edge of the branch where the slopes rise out of the water at severe angles, offering stunning backdrops. This area is also is well connected by road and ferry to Como and Menaggio and to Lanzo, a well-known hiking area.
