QUIET AND SUNNY APARTMENT WITH POOL AND BREATHTAKING VIEW OF LAKE AND MOUNTAINS

Porza Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 1 full bathroom, sleeps 4

In the quiet and sunny Porza, just few minutes from the center of Lugano, a 100 sqm apartment in villa, with all comforts and a spectacular view of the lake surrounded by mountains. Here you will enjoy the beautiful garden, where you can chill out in the large private mosaic pool.

You can google for 'Il Poggiolotto'

The Pool: The pool (10 x 4 m.) was built in 1960, probably one of the first private pools of the Lugano area. It is not the usual plastic tub, but a concrete structure covered with mosaic tiles. Its rare advantage is the depth: 2,20 meters, unusual in modern pools. Diving at will!

The pool is shared with the owners and operates from June 1 to September 30, unless very favorable weather conditions allow to extend the period.

Lugano Holiday Card: Guests will receive the Lugano Holiday Card: over 80 discount coupons from various companies in the region.

The reductions relate to the various activities you can undertake in our region. Includes guided tours (free!), offers for families, the use of lift systems, boat trips, car rental and other means of transport. Major museums in our area offer discounts as well.

The most important part of the offer is given by sports and recreational activities: there are many facilities such as swimming pools, beaches, tennis courts, sports centers where you can enjoy a reduced price. The list ends with the coupons that can be used in some public places in the region.

We spent a week in this wonderful place. Everything was just perfect: flat, landscape, clean, quiet - no words. .. Greatly enjoyed the lovely and private swimming pool .
Very good location - countless options to tour the area, including neighboring Italy. The apartment itself is managed flawlessly, it has all of everything ...
The owners are very nice people, special thanks to Ettore and Alexandro!
We hope to return to vacation in this wonderful place and definitely recommend it to all our friends.

Avons passé une trés bonne semaine dans cette maison / appartement avec une vue imprenable sur LUGANO.
La location est impeccable.Rien ne manque .La description fournie sur internet est tout a fait conforme a la réalité. Les propriétaires sont très gentils et a notre écoute , serviables envers leurs locataires..
La grande piscine est très agréable .
Nous conseillons cette maison car elle nous a convenue sur tous les plans.
(petit bémol..mais on s y habitue très vite..il y a une soixantaine de marches pour accéder a la maison)
pensons sincèrement la relouer en 2013.

Perfect Apartment

This apartment was perfect in everyway. The location is above the city which allows fantastic views, a 15 minute drive to the Old City. We thoroughly enjoyed the pool and outdoor patio, our evening spot. The apartment was very clean and well suited and comfortable, we will definitely stay here again when visiting Lugano.

Outstanding view of Lugano and surroundings

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: May 7, 2012

The apartment was large and spacious will all the accommodations we needed. The kitchen was fully equipped, lights throughout the apartment were bright, and the internet was fast. We found the apartment very clean and comfortable, and the owners were helpful and available if needed.
Many apartments might have their view blocked by other buildings, but a vineyard below gave us an outstanding, unobstructed view! The view is really magical and makes a stay here worth it! It was too early for us to take advantage of the pool - too bad! So lovely and relaxing. Beware that it is a deep pool - there is no shallow end.
We didn't use a car while there, although there is good parking if you have a car. If you don't plan to use a car, it is about a 5-10 minute hike uphill to the nearest postal bus stop (Porza Paese). There is usually a bus every 30 minutes Monday-Friday. (less on weekends). It is possible to walk down to Lugano (45-50 minutes) I know the route as I have lived in the area previously. If you are unfamiliar with the Lugano area, this may be a bit complicated to find the right paths.
Visitors should also be aware that the apartment is on the side of the mountain, lower than the owner's house, which requires a walk up 78 steps to reach the driveway. In the future there may be access to the street below, which would only be a short distance by steps, but this is currently not available.
I highly recommend Il Poggiolotto. It was really very nice for a stay in the Lugano area.

My Lugano Summer Apartment

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Sep 24, 2011
  • Stayed: Jul 2011
This was my home for 4 weeks during the summer while my children
attended the TASIS Summer program. Ettore was kind enough to
greet/meet us at the train station. He loaded all of our baggage into his
car (I had a lot of luggage). We were extremely tired from our long
journey from Miami. So, it was much appreciated!

I didn't know what to expect. He told me he would arrange a rental car
that he received a 20% discount. He even went to the store for us
knowing how tired and jet lagged we were. (Thank you) The next
morning, he took me to the rental car company. He took his time to
give me a map and show me how to get around. I still got lost plenty of
times ;-) The only thing I should warn of is that there are a lot of steps
going up and down to apartment.

The apartment is part of a home with it's own entrance separate from
the house. I saw Ettore and Stephania in passing and asked who Wilhem Tell was and awoke to 2 print outs under the door. One about the legend of Wilhem Tell; the other about the Citta di Lugano. Stephania also invited us to dinner in their home. It was very nice to meet her. She speaks very little English but, tried and was very warm and hospitable. She also invited me to go for a ride with her to the FOX Shopping outlet.

The apartment itself is very comfortable and looks just like the photos. There is a garden below with tomatoes, cucumbers, eggplant and grapes. YUM! My kids used the pool (it is not heated, burr) but, they loved it! View of Lake andMonte San Salvatore and Monte Bre. It is absolutely beautiful. You will never tire of seeing it. And, sometimes they have fireworks over lake. Monte Tamaro is about 25 minutes away for outdoor lovers. We had a blast. Even just going up to Monte San Salvatore was nice. The castles of Bellinzona are about 45 minutes away.

In the apartment is everything you need working appliances like washing machine ( no dryer) but, they have a foldable rack to put them outside. The house has no A/C you just open the windows and get a nice breeze off the lake. I loved the shutters to block everything out at night. Also, plenty of sheets and towels to use. Every night the kids and I would put down the shutters and say, "Good night pretty Lugano!"
I would recommend this apartment to friends and family for sure! House is very nice and well maintained.There is a church above that you can take a little hike to. Downtown is a 5 minute drive. Miss you ;)
