If you're looking for the Italian dream - a period villa with al fresco dining right on Italy's most exclusive lake - you've found it right here! Residenza Valsolda apartments are located in the small, quaint and very old Italian town of San Mamete, just five minutes from the Swiss Border. The apartments enjoy a balconies overhanging the lake at the most panoramic point offering truly breathtaking views. We have multiple one-bedroom apartments available to rent. The accommodation includes a furnished kitchen, linens, and a hair-dryer. There is an elevator in the building. Restaurants, shopping, post-office, bank, etc. are within walking distance of the apartment.
My partner and I enjoyed our stay in San Mamete. It is a beautiful village and everyone was very friendly and helpful. The apartment is very comfortable although I did wish after I had booked that we had stayed in Apt 6 instead of 5 as it had a much larger balcony. The only draw back we found was the isolation we felt as we did not hire a car. Although the bus service is very reliable it stops around 6pm so this means you only have the village to go to for dinner. This was very limited. The hotel nearby we found very disappointing (and we are not fussy eaters). Due to this we ate in most nights which was fine but I look forward to the atmosphere of a busy restaurant and also it makes a change from everyday life.
Having said this it was the quietest place we have been to in a long time so very relaxing. I would recommend this accommodation but advise that you hire a car.
San mamete is one of the most charming and friendly places I have ever been to. Its a tiny little village but has everything you would require for a short break on lake lugano. All the locals are friendly and more than helpful. The apartment itself was perfect, positioned on possibly the single best view of the lake. Everything I needed was there from cutlery to towels, TV, microwave, even books! Location wise, you can travel to lugano in about 20 mintutes or travel about 10 minutes in the opposite direction and visit the charming porlezza.
I would highly recommend a visit to the residence valsolda apartments. The perfect place to spend a week on the edge of one of the great italian lakes.
Spent a week at this apartment and was completely bowled over by the location. The views from the front lounge and bedroom look right across the lake and it's so quiet and peaceful the only sound was of the ducks quacking as they sailed past! San Mamete village is quaint and friendly, but still has everything you need, banks, PO, bars, restaurants, cafe etc. It's just a quick trip into Porlezza as well if you want a larger nightlife scene. If you want a romantic secret haven or just to get away from it all and reconnect with nature, then you can't beat this place. Only wish I could've stayed longer!
Stunning well furnished spotlessly clean appartment in a truly splendid location - right on the lake (and I mean right on the lake!) looking across at the mountains...
And all this in a most delightful olde worlde village - a part of the world where people really know how to live.
Would highly recommend it!
Possibly the prettiest village on Lake Lugano, San Mamete is just five minutes from the Swiss Border. It has a fairy-tale castle and the peaceful valley of Valsoldo is its backdrop. San Mamete is a delightful 17th century village nestled on the shores of Lake Lugano at the entrance to Valsolda. The village offers the following services: a hotel, 2 restaurants, 2 bars, 2 banks, 2 grocery stores, a hairdresser, a post office, a doctor’s office and a boat dock for commercial use. (Please see the town map above for locations.) After crossing the border from Switzerland in the direction of Porlezza, you will find some of the most scenic coastline and charming villages found anywhere on the Italian Lakes.
