Casa Magnolia

4 Guests 2 Beds

New to Let’s Escape, Casa Magnolia is our personal holiday home. We have been holidaying here as our second home for the last 10 years and have recently refurbished the apartment to add to the Let’s Escape portfolio. I hope you'll love it as much as we do!

It is a very light and spacious one bed apartment on the first floor of 'Casa Magnolia' an amazing three storey farmhouse built into the hillside in the 1800s, which provides the most incredible views of Lake Como. There is also the option to add the double room on the ground floor as part of your stay.

Layout

First floor apartment.

The steps from the terrace take you into a spacious, light bedroom with kingsize bed facing the long windows which look directly on to the lake. From the apartment door you also have a beautiful view of both the lake and down to the pretty village of Argegno, just a 10-15 minute stroll away.

The bedroom leads on through the archway into the kitchen/dining/living area. This mirrors the double windows in the bedroom with the amazing lake views. The kitchen area is equipped with a full size fridge-freezer, kettle, toaster and microwave. Please note there are no other cooking facilities.

The living space includes a double sofa bed and a folding dining table by the fireplace. The bedroom and living area are connected, there is no door as can be seen on the photographs, there is a curtain to separate the two rooms if you wish.

Beyond the living area is large, fully tiled shower room - again with an amazing view of the lake from the shower!

Ground floor apartment.

You have the option of adding  the ground floor apartment which consists of one bedroom with a sink and a separate shower room next door, please see photos. The ground floor is unsuitable for children due to the external access to the shower room.

Guests have use of the terrace on the ground floor, this includes a pretty bistro table and chairs as you access the property and a large dining table and chairs to the far side of the property with a BBQ for Alfresco dining. As with the whole property both seating areas have fabulous views of the lake.

Things to note

As with many properties this close to Lake Como, the house is on the lake road. The house is set above the road and has shutters on all the windows to reduce noise levels, but road noise is to be expected particularly at peak times. It can be busy to cross the road to walk into Argegno, please be aware & take care approaching and leaving the house.

Being set above the road provides the spectacular views, but this does mean a flight of steps from the road to the house (~35 steps) and from the terrace to the first floor (~15 steps).

My parents live in the apartment on the top floor and do the meet & greet, to provide you with the key. They can provide a wealth of local knowledge and recommendations for restaurants etc. should you want it - you only need to ask.

Customer Reviews

  • "We spent a sublime long weekend in Casa Magnolia. The views of Lake Como are stunning from every window (including the shower room!) and the house is ideally located. Once there you can abandon the car as shops, restaurants, ferry and boat hire are all a short stroll away. The accommodation is extremely well appointed with comfy beds! We can’t wait to go back to this beautiful place that I can only describe as magical!"

  • "Second stay and can’t wait to go back again! The middle apartment was clean and comfortable with glorious views of the Lake and mountains from every window, as well as the outside terrace. The Welcome Pack was a lovely touch too. A perfect location for exploring the Lake and surrounding area; within easy walking distance of the village of Argegno with its ferry and bus links and good selection of friendly bars and restaurants. Special mention for the excellent hosts Pauline and Colin who made us really welcome, and gave great advice on places to visit and things to see."

  • "The panoramic view of Lake Como from the apartment was just spectacular. Pauline and Colin, who live upstairs, were very friendly and helpful. We recommend renting bikes at the local bike rental (Guti Bike Rental, which is just 5 minutes away from the house."
