“Amazing view - worth the cost on its own”

We had an amazing week staying at Residence Eden Gardenia 11 just next door. The view is amazing. The apartment was clean and apart from no oven or potato peeler it was well equip. The pool was lovely again with a lovely view.
We were occasionally bothered by cigarette smoke from the balcony below but this was not a major problem. It was generally quiet and people were respectful at the pool.
The walk up and down from the village is good for the heart in contrast to the cost of the local restaurants! The local baker is not great but ok and there is a further small store further down.
The weather wasn't the best (worst summer in 124 yrs apparently!) but the apartment helped to make up for it.
The only real issue for us was having a hire car and a 1:4 hill to park on. The garage provided looked treacherous and not attempted!
We would stay again though. Wonderful time - many thanks

“Pros and Cons”
Reviewed 18 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

people found this review helpful

Felt it best to write this review as a list of Pros and Cons as we came away without an overwhelming opinion one way or the other about this apartment.

Pros:
Fantastic location and view from the balcony, with a awe inspiring view of the lake.
Good pool, possibly one of the largest in Argegno
Spacious bedrooms and good showers in well equipped bathrooms
Friendly and helpful staff in the happy holidays office in Menaggio
Well kept grounds with good security

Cons:
Some aspects of cleanliness could have been better, we had to ask twice for a change of bed linen and towels mid-stay.
Electrics were haphazard with many niggling faults.
Parking is only suitable for a smaller vehicle (we had a 7 seater which was almost impossible to get in and out of the garage). there is parking areas higher up the hill which was a more practical option for us.
Very low ceilings in the upstairs bedrooms, we have the bumped heads to prove it.

Other considerations:
We did not experience the difficulties with lack of kitchen equipment, perhaps due to the previous reviewers comments.
The hill leading to the village is very steep but that is the nature of this location and the walk is through some very attractive narrow streets.
A limited selection of shops locally but an excellent bakers in a lane off to the right before you reach the bottom of the hill to the village.
I have answered the recommend question below with a negative but would have preferred a maybe option as I would recommend if the views and pool were most important to you and you were all comfortable with the hills

“Great View, poorly equipt”

This place has a great view and is in a good location. The town of Agregno is a 10 min walk downhill. Walking back up is not easy at all if you are elderly or have small kids. Parking is tricky as we could not fit our car into the garage spot, but there was street parking. On the day we came in it was raining and we wanted to cook but there were NO POTS AND PANS AT ALL IN THE APARTMENT. This made for a bad first day for us as we had 8 hungry mouths to feed. We had to wait at least 3 or 4 hours until the pots and pans finally arrived. Also, the 2nd day we had ants in the bedroom, there was no food in there, so I don't know why. Keep in mind there is no toilet paper or soap upon arrival, so bring that with you. The kids loved the pool that was great and the apartment was spacious. We rented a boat for a day through this company and that was excellent.

“Overall a good rental....”

We have just returned from two weeks in Argegno. The apartment in general was very good. They are newly built properties with large spacious rooms. The view from the terrace is wonderful. The swimming pool and communal areas are well maintained and cleaned regularly.
However, considering the price paid and the description provided (fully equipped kitchen) I have to say that like the previous review we were very disappointed with the kitchen facilities. There are two small rings, that can barely fit two sauce pans at one time. There is no oven and no kettle (never mind a teapot)! We had to go out and buy some bowls for the salads and food we prepared as there was only one available in the apartment (we did ask for extra but didn't receive any). Likewise the provided kitchen utensils were very poor (not even a wooden spoon!).
So while everything else about the rental was great we found this quite poor. A few small extra utensils would make a huge difference.

“Great view!”

We spent 12 nights at residence Eden, the apartment was exceptionally clean and roomy, plenty of space for 5 (3 teenagers), the view from the balcony was exceptional! The use of 2 bathrooms was an essential especially when getting ready to go out in the evening. There are 2 large supermarkets nearby, one in Lenno (20 mins by car) the other in the opp direction in Cernobbio, similar distance. There are local shops at the bottom of steep hill which sell everything you need, especially good was the baker, unfortunately no butcher in the village! Very poor cooking equipment in apt, I needed to request saucepans which were supplied very quickly! Unfortunately, utensils very poor standard, eg. No potato peeler, although we managed as I had taken that and a corkscrew with us. Also, no English channel on TV, didn't bother me as not ther to watch tv, but could be an irritation. Be aware that climb back up steep hill is tough going, although this helped to offset the wonderful food we copiously ate. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the pool and sunbeds were life savers as it was so hot! We also did a couple of ferry trips to the other villages and I can honestly say Argegno is the favourite as it is quiet and serene and definately a jewel of lake como. I recommend a car, and there are garages under property, we however managed to ground vehicle on entering garage because of steep slope! We however found a convenient place to park at top of hill in spaces on the right before the residence so not too much of a problem!
