The property was very well located with close access to a supermarket, cafes and the train station and Lake Lugano. It was a great base to have in the area, in a quiet location. The house was very comfortable for the 4 of us with all facilities that you would need whilst on vaction. It was close to the train station,which gave us another option of travelling in the area eg. Varese, Milano. We were also able to park our hire car securely in the property.
Our hosts, Domenico and Marriet were very nice and ensured that our accomodadation had everything we needed including a well stocked pantry, laundry and bathroom cupboard. Clean towels and sheets were also provided for our second week. We would highly recommend this property to anyone wanting to stay in this area. We hope to be able to visit the area again and stay at this property at some time in the future.
We loved Julian and Sue’s villa, which is in a stunning location, with beautiful views of the lake. The villa is very comfortable and quiet, well-appointed and spotlessly clean. It is also very professionally managed.
The only thing people should be aware of is the very precarious drive in from the main road, and the steep, twisting drive up to the villa, and also the very scary exit from the drive back out onto the main road, adjacent to a bend. There are also 32 steep steps up from the car to the villa which was tricky with bags and suitcases - but good exercise! Anyone less fit than us might find that a challenge.
We love walking - everywhere - so were a bit disappointed that there is absolutely no possibility of walking anywhere from the villa itself, due to the entrance being on a very fast main road, with no pavements, for several miles. However, once in Connonio or Oggebio there are nice walking trails - but you have to drive to get there.
The area is absolutely beautiful - especially in the glorious Italian sunshine.
