London lifestyle & travels with kids and babies

Argegno with kids – Como Lake dolce vita

30 degrees Celsius feel gentle by Como Lake and Argegno with kids felt easy like a Sunday morning!


On our huge terrace, our almost 2 years old is splashing in his inflatable little pool we carried again from London. Mum, dad and nanny friend lying in sunbeds and various places resting their eyes on gorgeous views, lake, hills and mountains. We could all certainly get used with this life!

Como Lake dolce vita


Argegno is a little charming village and we are up the hills, 5 minutes down a pedestrian alley to a fresh fruit & vegetables shop, bakery and its piazza. Couple of restaurants, a fountain, one other restaurant by the river, one hotel with a restaurant by the lake, one pier and one hair salon – life is refreshingly simple. Have not read a single page about the village and found all within 15 minutes of walking round.

A take away risotto delivered in beautiful plates to be returned at our own convenience. A fresh fish from the lake from La P’osteria. A blow-dry costing €15 and not much fuss for a same day Saturday appointment. A front lake hotel refreshingly helpful with print outs despite not being their guests. Me bathing in front of the hotel whilst son and dad enjoying their cappuccino and juice. A faultless Airbnb flat.  A quiet and relaxed dinner by the lake, great food and service at Belvedere that must have impressed even our toddler who stayed one hour and a half indulging in octopus, almond tossed lamb chops and clams spaghetti. A Saturday afternoon filled with live jazz from the neighbouring lake house, as good as it gets in Blue Marlin Ibiza. A Sunday night filled with moon and stars which reflect mysteriously in the lake. A Monday morning feeling joyous and pacing nicely.

Argegno with kids felt back to basics, simplicity and kindness . A great recharge for the urban souls.
